Say, "I was wrong, Judy.  I said 'Of course' you had
blamed FEMA for not letting the Red Cross into New
Orleans, when you clearly did not.  I made a silly
assumption without checking and pretended it was a
fact.  I apologize."

Actually you should now add, "To make matters worse,
I didn't admit I was wrong to start with; instead I
pretended I had made a much broader claim about your
having blamed FEMA for not getting relief to the
dome earlier.  That was *really* dumb, because not
only was that not what I had accused you of, but FEMA
*was* disgracefully slow getting relief to the dome,
as just about everybody, including Bush, now admits."
