Romney apologizes for something he says he can't remember


On Fox News radio this morning Mitt Romney addressed the Washington Post's story detailing his time at Cranbrook School, a private prep school in Michigan.

As I wrote earlier, the story includes an incident recounted by several of Romney's old schoolmates in which one misfit named John Lauber (whom was presumed to be gay) was held to the ground while Romney cut off his hair.

Here's what Romney said on Fox radio:

"I don’t remember that incident and I’ll tell you I certainly don’t believe that I, I can’t speak for other people of course, thought the fellow was homosexual. That was the furthest thing from my mind back in the 1960s, so that was not the case. But as to pranks that were played back then, I don’t remember them all, but again, high school days, if I did stupid things, why I’m afraid I got to say sorry for it."

If he doesn't remember it, he can't actually be sorry (not that you can really feel that sorry for something that happened decades ago). Besides, Lauber died in 2004. It's a little late for an apology, if one is even needed.
