Fox is smarter than that

Mexican President Vicente Fox was on Rev. Jesse Jackson's radio program this weekend and no, he didn't apologize.

''I very much regret the misinterpretation,'' said Fox. Jackson thanked Fox for ''showing a contrite spirit.''

Unfortunately, in Mexico, the color of your skin determines where you fall in the social ladder. But Fox needs to be careful what he says next time. And who is Fox trying to kid anyway? On the radio, he was just going through the motions; he just wants Jackson off of his back.

After all, this former Coca-Cola executive and Harvard University grad should know what the heck he's doing (and saying)--right?
