An Empty Apology

Bob Herbert
One of President Bush's surrogates went before the NAACP last week and apologized for the Republican Party's reprehensible, decades-long Southern strategy. The surrogate, Ken Mehlman, is chairman of the Republican National Committee. Perhaps he meant well. But his words were worse than meaningless. They were insulting. The GOP's Southern strategy, racist at its core, still lives.
