Sorry state (of) affairs

“It seems that Chief Minister Yeddyurappa has become the sorry face of the state government. It was for the 17th time since he assumed office two years ago that he expressed how sorry he was in public, yesterday.
This time, when he took the mike to address the media in Mangalore, it was only to tender an apology for the high handedness of government officials.

With this, Yeddyurappa has bagged the rather dubious distinction of being the most apologetic chief minister in the history of the state.”
