Longoria: Sorry if you didn’t get that I was trying to create ‘dialogue’

By

Obama campaign co-chair Eva Longoria is so very sorry. But she’s not sorry that she retweeted a vulgar tweet calling women and minorities “stupid” to vote for Romney. Heaven forfend!

She’s sorry if people were offended by her incredibly generous use of Twitter as a “platform for all Americans.”

I use Twitter as a platform for all Americans and their opinions. Sorry if people were offended by retweet. Obviously not my words or my personal view. I respect all Americans #FreedomOfSpeech

Obviously not her words?? Lol“@michellemalkin: [email protected]evalongoria Way to take responsibility, dear. “Sorry if”… ==> is.gd/kAKvbr

First, Longoria deleted the vile retweet to cover her tracks. But Twitchy is forever.

When that didn’t fly, she hilariously tried to pull an Anthony Weiner, claiming a hacker or Twitter bug caused random retweets about conservative women and minorities to magically appear on her account. She really must think we’re “stupid.”

Apparently chapter three in “Damage Control for Dummies” involves issuing a faux apology. We suspect she got her copy as a hand-me-down from Weiner.

And she followed up the absurd non-apology apology with an even more ridiculous tweet. That retweet calling women and minorities “stupid to vote for such a racist/misogynistic twat”? She didn’t necessarily agree; she was just creating dialogue, man.

I retweet many people I don’t agree with for the purpose of discussion and dialogue, that’s democracy…and boy did this create dialogue!

Keep digging, doll. Keep digging.

[email protected]evalongoria I also love how you pretend you were just nobly creating “dialogue” & sharing your “platform.” Snort==>is.gd/93eA5S

[email protected]evalongoria Thank you soooo much for your self-sacrifice and service! Maybe you’ll be next in line for Nobel Peace Prize.

Apologies are hard. So very hard.

@evalongoria Sorry ppl were offended or sorry you offended ppl? You can only apologize 4 own actions. It’s political speak. #notarealapology

@evalongoria Learn how to apologize. The words “if I” don’t belong in an apology. What you said was deplorable. ur either sorry or ur not.

@michellemalkin @evalongoria If only liberals knew the difference between “Sorry if…” and “Sorry that…”.

Hi @evalongoria, “sorry if” is not saying sorry and fully apologizing. You are not sorry at all.

@evalongoria Sorry dear. That didn’t work for Anthony Weiner. It won’t work for you. OWN your vile words and make a real apology. #twitchy

Longoria has tried every possible way out of this … well, except for issuing a sincere apology for what she retweeted. A real apology? We won’t hold our breath.

And when even Alan Colmes is calling for you to resign as co-chair of the campaign, it’s a sign.

Update:

A Twitchy reader makes an excellent point:

[email protected]twitchyteam Wonder why dialogue-lover @evalongoria doesn’t want to dialogue with @michellemalkin ?

And here we have the fourth chapter of “Damage Control for Dummies”: changing the subject.
