looks like he caved...
No, he didn’t cave. He merely stated he chose the wrong word. Just what the appropriate word should be is anyone’s guess. Knowing Rush, it was along those same lines. People are overlooking the obvious in this so-called apology. I get upset with FReepers sometimes, as they don’t read below the surface of things.
Well, those that see Rush as some sort of leader or adviser or seer are very naive. Rush is a entertainer, more so he is a businessman running a business for $$$. That is his priority. I have found Rush very inconsistent in the messages he sends from show to show. To enjoy him you must forget things he said a year or two ago.
From what some of the guests and paid commentators were reporting on MSNBC Friday and maybe Thursday, a number of sponsors >5 pulled their advertising off of Rush's show. Those inside the bubble probably didn't know that.
Rush is just a sideshow, the main show is that Republicans are on a consistent losing streak against Obama since taking back the House, And I am not optimistic about them breaking it.
