Write Jon Favreau’s Apology Speech


Oops. My bad. Soooorrrry. D’oh! Mea culpa.

Despite being official speechwriter to the President-elect, Jon Favreau appears to be at a loss for words.

Maybe he needs your help.

The New Agenda suggests that its members help Jon Favreau write his apology speech. Help him find the words. We’ll forward it to the campaign next week.

Here are some famous apology quotes to get you started:

You must tell me who I might have hurt. I have to write them an apology.
Vivien Leigh

I must take complete responsibility for all my actions, both public and private. And that is why I am speaking to you tonight…
Bill Clinton, August 17, 1998

I’m having to become quite an expert in this business of asking for forgiveness…
Bill Clinton, August 28, 1998

You know, I have acknowledged that I made a mistake…
Bill Clinton, September 2, 1998

I made a big mistake. It is indefensible, and I am sorry…
Bill Clinton, September 4, 1998

I also let you down, and I let my family down, and I let this country down…
Bill Clinton, September 9, 1998

I agree with those who have said that in my first statement after I testified I was not contrite enough…
Bill Clinton, September 11, 1998

…I am profoundly sorry for all I have done wrong in words and deeds. I never should have misled the country, the Congress, my friends and my family.
Bill Clinton, December 11, 1998

…I want to say again to the American people how profoundly sorry I am…
Bill Clinton, February 12, 1999

There is no excuse, nor should there be any tolerance, for anyone who thinks or expresses any kind of anti-Semitic remark. I want to apologize specifically to everyone in the Jewish community for the vitriolic and harmful words that I said to a law enforcement officer the night I was arrested on a DUI charge.
Mel Gibson

A lawyer for the disgraced politician [Mark Foley] said his client was not a pedophile but did have a drinking problem and had once been molested by a clergyman.

I’m not racist. That’s what’s so insane about this.
