NBC's Andrea Mitchell is sorry for calling voters in rural Appalachia "rednecks" on the air.

"This is real redneck, sort of...um, bordering on Appalachia country," she said. "This is not the northern Virginia, sort of, high tech corridor. These are not voters he [Obama] would logically be gravitating to."

Mitchell apologized for the comment yesterday.
