Red State Pulls Sexist Sarah Palin Photoshop — Editor Ben Howe Apologizes for Over-the-Top 'Snark' Response

Here's the post, updated, "Palin’s Third-Party Solution is Part of the Problem."

And at Twitchy, "RedState editor Ben Howe apologizes for mishandling photoshopped Sarah Palin image."

But read the whole thing at Twitchy. Howe disagrees the photo (Photoshop) was sexist. He's only apologizing for his response to critics. Thus, it's a partial apology, since he doesn't apologize for the lousy blog post itself.

Still, he's restoring the necessary degree of credibility. I don't really know him or else I would've let loose on Twitter myself. And props to Team Twitchy for running with this story, even a day or so late. It's hard coming down on folks on your own side. But it's needed, nevertheless.

And kudos to Josh Painter for sticking to his guns and helping to make this right.
