Conjugate this

OKEE DOKEE people out there smarter than I...

We were watching Keith Olbermann on MSNBC and he was reading a quote made about some lady politician and her lack of apology. The quote read, "...the lack there of a sorry or any conjugation of the verb..." UMmmm... OK... HOW in the HECK do you conjugate SORRY?

You can't conjugate Sorry because it is not a verb it is an adjective.

Not that any of that would matter to Michele Bachman, the politician Olbermann was referring to, who is not exactly the sharpest stick in the box.

I think they were referring to "apologise" which can be conjugated. I remember it taking me off-guard for a second, too, until I ran it back through my head. At least, that's what I think.
