"I've said I was sorry from the first interview," Green Party leader Elizabeth May told me when I interviewed her today on Parliament Hill.
"My attempts at humour were completely misplaced and didn't work well," she added.
I asked her if she stood by her comment that convicted terrorist Omar Khadr had more "class" than the Prime Minister's cabinet, and she told me she was trying to make a play on words related to her earlier reference to the 1970s sit-com Welcome Back, Kotter.
May told me she has no further plans to "try to do comedy without help."
