Sarah Spitz Apologizes for Rush Limbaugh Death Wish Comments on JournoList

Here's NPR playing some CYA: "Public Radio Publicist Apologizes For Controversial Remarks About Limbaugh" (via Memeorandum). And the Spitz apology cited therein:
I made poorly considered remarks about Rush Limbaugh to what I believed was a private email discussion group from my personal email account. As a publicist, I realize more than anyone that is no excuse for irresponsible behavior. I apologize to anyone I may have offended and I regret these comments greatly; they do not reflect the values by which I conduct my life.

"I apologize to anyone I may have offended"

Content-free formula-string of words.

I think I'd have more respect for her if she stuck to her guns.

Weak apologies delivered only after public "outing" of the transgression are less than meaningless, and show a complete lack of itegrity and character.
