Uh oh. Looks like someone’s PR person gave her a severe tongue lashing.

Tuesday afternoon Cher tried to “turn back time” by quietly deleting her Twitter rant about breathing the cooties of Mitt Romney’s “racist homophobic women hating tea bagger masters.”

But it was too late. Twitchy captured the tweets and our report was picked up by Drudge, Hollywood Reporter, Hot Air, and others. This morning, she was forced to apologize. Not for her ignorance or idiocy, of course, but for being unkind in letting those evil tea baggers know what she really thinks.

So, Cher’s not sorry for thinking there are bigoted “tea baggers” behind the Romney curtain, just sorry she expressed it publicly. Got it. She’s also sorry(ish) for feeling good about herself during her meltdown:

Her excuse? She was channeling Rush Limbaugh:

We’re wondering, did Cher forgive and forget when Limbaugh apologized to Sandra Fluke for his insulting word choice? No, she’s still attacking him, even as she “apologizes” to save her behind (and her album sales).

Way too little, way too late, Cher. We got you, babe:
