No way. He may “apologize” in the sense of “I’m sorry a slut was offended when I called a spade a spade...”

Say it isn’t so! He has nothing to apologize for! Rush correctly characterized that communist Democrat tool, Fluke.

I hope Rush does not back down, but I read that some of his advertisers are squeamish. Pansies.

Like..."I apologize for calling you a slut...it really doesn't say enough about you so it's not fair". And though I would like to call you the same name that someone called Palin... I'm too much of a gentleman.

P.S. Who's picking up the tab for all your "work". How long have the Dems been supporting you?

Normally no, but they do when it suits them.
If there is "Hate Speech" there is also "Hate Listening", where they listen to Rush's program just to get something on him while completely ignoring the message.

From Facebook:

A Statement from Rush
March 03, 2012
For over 20 years, I have illustrated the absurd with absurdity, three hours a day, five days a week. In this instance, I chose the wrong words in my analogy of the situation. I did not mean a personal attack on Ms. Fluke.

I think it is absolutely absurd that during these very serious political times, we are discussing personal sexual recreational activities before members of Congress. I personally do not agree that American citizens should pay for these social activities. What happened to personal responsibility and accountability? Where do we draw the line? If this is accepted as the norm, what will follow? Will we be debating if taxpayers should pay for new sneakers for all students that are interested in running to keep fit? In my monologue, I posited that it is not our business whatsoever to know what is going on in anyone’s bedroom nor do I think it is a topic that should reach a Presidential level.

My choice of words was not the best, and in the attempt to be humorous, I created a national stir. I sincerely apologize to Ms. Fluke for the insulting word choices

What he should frame his comment about is: OK, I agree I should not have told the truth about you so if you would just stop telling lies about me.

Oh God, another Freeper who doesn’t understand that Rush merely said he chose the wrong word. What other word do you think he had in mind? Think about it....and don’t be so quick to lap the cream from the liberal saucers.

Oh come on, Hillary is irrelevant any more. No man would touch Hillary with a ten-foot pole - including Bill. She isn’t the one who said she spends $1000 a year of birth control - nor has she ever made that claim.

The stupid thing is ... if you are going to be on birth control and make the liberated rounds of men available ... it still leaves you open to sexual diseases including HIV/AIDS.

A condom won’t prevent herpes, but at least it prevents the other stuff.

Common sense... she is a fly trapped in amber.

His “apology” was a back-handed swat at the Congress for bringing the trollop in to speak in the first place. Basically a tongue-in-cheek Rush riposte that serves as an “apology”. Can’t wait to hear what he says about it on Monday’s show.

I have no idea whether or not that pig Sandra Fluke is a slut, and neither does Rush.
Fact is, she sure does sound like a slut.

Her father must be very proud.

He already apologized although it wasn’t much of an apology, not the slobbering sob fest the left was hoping for, at any rate.
