The Tea Party Apologizes

(Via TPM)

Tea Party Group Apologizes To Karl Rove

Tea Party Patriots said that a fundraising email sent out Tuesday showing a manipulated photo of GOP operative Karl Rove wearing an S.S. uniform was a mistake that the organization "did not know about or approve." 


"We apologize to Mr. Rove. While we may have strong disagreements with Mr. Rove on the future of conservatism, we want to be clear this imagery is absolutely unacceptable and are working to ensure this type of mistake doesn’t happen again," read the statement.

Oh, of course. Of course that sort of thing can't be tolerated. You can't go around comparing people to Nazis.

Even though you have serious disagreements with Karl Rove, Nazi comparisons are really beyond the pale.

Obviously the Tea Party can't allow itself to be associated with people who make these sort of outrageous comparisons.

It really goes without saying that Nazi references are unacceptable. A classy organization like the Tea Party is obviously above that sort of thing.

Apology accepted!

And so on. . .
