John Burton Says He Never Used the Word “Nazi” When Talking About the GOP

Has no widow's peak

The normally unapologetic John Burton says he's really sorry for hurting any feelings over at the GOP camp after he likened Republicans to a bunch of propaganda-spewing Nazis.

Burton, the chairmain of the California Democratic Party, issued a sincere apology to the GOP yesterday, which is news in itself since the loose-lipped Dem is more known for his colorful comments than for expressing remorse for them.

“If Mitt Romney, Paul Ryan, or the Republicans are insulted by my

describing their campaign tactic as the big lie — I most humbly

apologize to them or anyone who might have been offended by that

comment.”

But for the record, Burton said, he never uttered the word “Nazi.”
