Dave Catanese, the Politico reporter who tweeted about how maybe we were all wrong about Todd Akin, has seen the light. The Huffington Post reports that Catanese sent an apology out to Politico staffers. Below, an excerpt:

I am deeply sorry and apologize for the distress and distraction I have caused in the newsroom and promise to learn from this experience to better express my journalistic intent with greater precision and sensitivity.
