Trotta: I am so sorry about what happened yesterday. In a lame attempt at humor I really just fell all over myself in making it appear that I wished Barack Obama harm or any other candidate for that matter. I sincerely regret it and apologize to anybody I've offended. It's a very colorful political season and many of us are making mistakes and saying things we wish we hadn't said.
Not to excuse what she said yesterday on Fox News, because everyone should know there's just no excuse for it even if it was meant as a joke gone awry, but for someone who had gotten herself into this kind of a situation, this is exactly what needed to be said. Good for her.
