The daily STEW (Star-Telegram Editorial Writers): Last week former vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin, referring to unspecified comments by Pope Francis, said some of the pontiff’s statements “to me sound kind of liberal, has taken me aback, has kind of surprised me.” She later apologized. Do you think she should have apologized, and if so, do you accept her apology?

I think no one cares what she says or thinks. She is an uneducated idiot, an embarrassment for the Republican party and this country. David E.

How is what she said offensive? No apology needed. Gabi Washington-Galvan

Haven’t we learned that she says what she thinks “her people” want to hear? She is a publicity hound, and seems desperate to extend the public’s attention to her. That’s all. Pat Perkins

I think she and Ted Cruz should ride off into the sunset together. Christina McClure

Why apologize for the truth? Lesley Hensell


Given that what Sarah Palin apologized for was for not making her point clear, yes, I believe the apology is warranted. As communicators, we have a responsibility to make our statements easy to understand. Timothy Fish

If she thinks the Pope is liberal, wait until she meets Jesus. Bill Reedy
