A Statement from Rush (Rush offers apology to Slut!)
Rushlimbaugh.com ^ | Mar 3, 2012 | Rush Limbaugh

Posted on 03/03/2012 2:15:11 PM PST by TSgt

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.

I guess his $pon$ors were dropping him like flies so he panicked.

The truth never needs an apology.

Disappointing.

She’s a slut, and Limbaugh is stooping to her level in making this statement.

Might just serve to spur his enemies on to a more intense and energized attack. Watch that a retreat doesn’t become a rout.

All evil needs to prevail is for good men to do nothing.

We sat on our asses and did nothing.

No wonder the left is winning. :(

He did good.

Here’s an excellent analogy by O’Reilly — that’s the way it should have been handled!

When are we going to go after Bill Maher, Ed Schultz and Keith Olberman? Why do they get off the hook?

You mean, like, Midnight Basketball?

Fair enough. He could have made his point - which was a valid one - in a less personal way.

Rush did the right thing here.

He removed himself from the debate, while keeping his position on the issue intact.

The left was losing this debate bigtime until he used the word "slut".

Now let's go back to them losing again.
