KOMMONSENTSJANE – COURIC TWEETS APOLOGY TO DUTCH FOR OLYMPIC COMMENT – YEP, EVERY DOG HAS HER DAY.

KATIE

EVERY DOG HAS HIS DAY COURIC:

NEW YORK (AP) Katie Couric has apologized for saying that the Dutch are so successful in speed skating because skates have been used as a form of transportation when canals freeze in the Netherlands.

Her remark during the Olympics’ opening ceremony invited some Dutch mockery on social media from people who said the information was outdated. The Netherlands embassy to the United States invited Couric to visit the country to see all of the innovative ways the Dutch get around.

Couric late Monday tweeted her apologies for being on thin ice with her comments.

The veteran anchor said she was trying to salute the country’s historic passion for the sport, but it didn’t come out that way.

**************************************

Remember Couric interviewing Sarah Palin:

COURIC: You’ve cited Alaska’s proximity to Russia as part of your foreign-policy experience. What did you mean by that?

PALIN: That Alaska has a very narrow maritime border between a foreign country, Russia, and on our other side, the land—boundary that we have with—Canada. It, it’s funny that a comment like that was—kind of made to cari—I don’t know. You know. Reporters—

COURIC: Mocked?

*******************************

Yep – Mocked is a good answer.  Sure am glad Couric had her legs crossed – who knows – we might have been able to see Alaska.
