Rendell Defends Remarks Again

Gov. Rendell does not apologize for remarks on Ariz Gov. Janet Napolitano; said he meant no insult.

Gov. Rendell has his story and he's sticking to it.

On CNN's "Late Edition with Wolf Blitzer" Sunday, Rendell was called to account - yet again - for his remarks last week, caught on a live microphone, that Arizona Gov. Janet Napolitano is "perfect" for the Homeland Security position in President-elect Obama's cabinet becasue she has no family and "no life." Rendell also, not unreasonably, implies that the obsessive news coverage of this flap, nearly a week later, is insane.

Here is a transcript provided by the network of yesterday's exchange with Wolf Blitzer, at the end of a long discussion with Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty (R) on infrastructure issues and the economy.
