It's like a circular firing squad, but with apologies. Let's break this down in chronological order.
1. During a congressional hearing, Texas Rep. Joe Barton apologized to BP executives for what he said was a "shakedown" by the Obama administration to force the oil company to pay for cleaning up the Gulf spill.
2. Chastised by the Republican leadership, Barton then apologized for his apology to BP.
3. Florida Democrats learned that congressional candidate Allen West has received campaign contributions from Barton. The party wants West to apologize for that and give the money back.

If this still doesn't make sense to you, I apologize.
