Nothing wrong with "apologetics", used properly - the practice of defence or vindication of a position. I've only really come across the term in a theological setting. But that sense doesn't seem to work in Palin's utterance.

(For some odd reason, it was really hard to post this comment - "We're sorry, we cannot accept this data" error! Even with all Javascript allowed in Firefox, it never showed the captcha thing.)

Not so much "odd English" as "unqualified copywriters" and "companies who don't feel it necessary to pay for copyediting."

Looks like Palin is gonna be a lighting rod no matter what she does.
