The Non-Apology Apology of the Day Courtesy of John Kerry

It’s Presidents Day, and do you know what that means? Well, sure, mattress sales — but this is also a day where I look around at some of the people who might have ended up as president but thankfully never did.

Tied at the top of the list with Al Gore and Mike Dukakis is John Thurston Kerry III, who squared off with some angry constituents on Saturday, mostly over the war in Afghanistan.

But check out this non-apology apology to a women who was insulted by the name Senator Thurston-Kerry called global warming skeptics:

Anti-war protesters interrupted Kerry numerous times Saturday as he met with constituents. Kerry apologized to a woman who said he called her a Neanderthal for not believing in global warming. The Democratic Party’s 2004 presidential candidate said he was referring generally to those who do not believe in global warming.

“I didn’t call you specifically a Neanderthal; I simply implied that you fit right in among a group of people who are Neanderthals — and I served in Vietnam.”

Really, should this guy be calling anybody a Neanderthal?
