Bob Johnson Apologizes!

We knew the Clintons would make him do it. BET founder Bob Johnson finally sent Barack Obama an apology for his comments alluding to Obama’s past drug use. According to someone familiar with the matter, the media got its hands on the letter before the campaign even received it:

Dear Barack,
I'm writing to apologize to you and your family personally for the un-called-for comments I made at a recent Clinton event. In my zeal to support Senator Clinton, I made some very inappropriate remarks for which I am truly sorry. I hope that you will accept this apology. Good luck on the campaign trail.
Warm regards,
Bob Johnson

Slate staff writer and friend of the blog Tim Noah sends along an earlier draft he came across while digging through Johnson's trash on an unrelated assignment:

Dear Sidney Barack,
I'm writing to apologize to you and your family personally for the un-called-for comments I made at a recent Clinton event--you know, the ones I made about your drug use, as documented in YOUR OWN DAMN BOOK. In my zeal to support Senator Clinton, I made some very inappropriate remarks about your ingestion of WEED and BLOW for which I am truly sorry.  I hope that you will accept this apology.  Good luck on the campaign trail, and good luck staying clean and sober.
One day at a time, baby,
Bob Johnson 
P.S.

  Now, shouldn't Johnson also apologize for his

that he was talking about Obama's days as a community organizer? Because if that's actually what he was referring to, why should he need to apologize in the first place?
