WASHINGTON (AP) -- Conservative talk show host Rush Limbaugh apologized Saturday to a Georgetown University law student he had branded a "slut" and "prostitute" after fellow Republicans as well as Democrats criticized him and several advertisers left his program.

I hope this doesn't mean that Rush is going to become another wussified Republican and turn his show into mush.

Sooner or later somebody covering this story is going to make an unfortunate typo on the word “insult.”

She hasn’t apologized for wanting me and you to give her out of our pockets $3000.00 a year for her sexual activties.

Unfortunately, with Rush, its all about the money and advertisers... the tact that should now be taken is to ask the slut if she believes that the Government should also provide free STD treatments due to her lax sexual behavior. And also ask if her mother approves of her sexcapades that requires so much birth control.

She's clearly a 'rat plant and needs to prove she is hetero.

Her economics and math are still wrong.

Her politics are socialist/marxist.

She needs to fail.

I believe that Rush did not apologise for what he said. Rush (the ever gentleman) apologised to whom he said it.

Rush Limbaugh remains a class act as far as I am concerned,

He apologized only for his ‘choice of words’. A very narrow, carefully worded apology. Read it - he doubled down on Obama for getting involved, too.

This chick is not a law student, she is a left wing attorney who has been sitting back waiting for the opportunity to use this. When Contraception during the debate, people wondered why, this was the plan of the far left, a diversion, anything to make people forget the 5 bucks a gallon gas prices and everything else Obama is doing to destroy this country. I wouldnt be surprised to hear about the fairness doctrine being brought back, this is what the left wants, to silence us, not only silence us, but the left wants us all dead

Hey, Carbonite CEO David Friend, you weak kneed little bustard;

Guess what? I’m going to tell EVERYONE I KNOW that you are weak kneed little COWARD!!

And I’ll use your competitor.

Hey Rush, if you buckle to this pig, you are nothing but a pig yourself.

The GIRL IS A S L U T!!

End of rant, end of story.

Jim Rob, if you think I’m over the line, please tell me before you zot me.

Good night all.

Rush is a coward.

I came to that conclusion a few years back when it became clear he wasn't going with any Obummer issues concerning his, shall we politely say, lack of credentials.

The news item fell under the radar quickly, but a suspicious package was delivered to Limbaugh's Florida home. It was explained as being a business opportunity sent by a fan. However, you have to wonder if someone did not fire a shot across the bow, to remind Limbaugh that he is not invulnerable. With his age (early 60s), his weight issues, and his past oxycondin use, an untimely demise would be considered plausible by many, if not most, people.

He should have apologized and did. Good for him. Personal insults are not the way to win an argument. It has been said that. “Bullying and name calling are the last refuge of the incompetent.” It is the liberal’s tactic since they can not intelligently argue their cause, it should not be ours.

Oh man, truer words were never spoken. How many leftist pigs attacked Sarah?

What is that fish faced puke Sandra What’s her effin name, who called Sarah a “shiksa”?

I was one of the few who knew what it meant, and made a big issue about it. FishFaced Sandra laughed it off and said it was a “joke”.

Yeah, right.

(sorry, I can see that puke’s face in my mind, I just can’t remember that puke’s name. She thinks she a comedian, but she’s nothing but a whore.) Sandra Bernstein??

It doesn’t matter, she’s a pig anyway.

I quit listening to him on “Bloody Thursday” when he joined forces with Fox and the GOP-e to take out Newt. I had been with him and admired him from day one. I quit listening to him on “Bloody Thursday”.

I will listen to his cartoon show on Monday, just to hear his sorry a$$ try to talk his way out of this one. Then as far as I am concerned, it’s time to stick a fork in him.....

He has all the money that any sane man would need to retire... it’s time for him to do that.

I’m probably going to get flamed for this, but Rush really stuck his foot in it. It was fair game to criticize her, but calling her a slut and a prostitute was over the line. That’s the kind of language that doesn’t play well anywhere. Rush is a smart man, but he stepped into it big time.

Even worse, Obama and the MSM was just waiting to turn this into a huge political issue. I already see posts on Yahoo News (falsely) saying that Republicans want to eliminate all birth control. That’s not what was said, but the sheeple won’t bother to look much further than the bumper sticker slogan.

Get over it.
Get over the fact that Rush, “apologized”.

His sponsors are the wimpy ones. Without them, he has no show. His show and he on it outweigh the fact that he “apologized”. You and I know he didn’t mean it and that is what is important. Move on, take back the country. Don’t take your eye off the prize on these distractions.

This isn’t over. Rush said to Bo Sneardly this would be bigger than the Wounded Warriors thing. This has happened again and again. Some of his fans always abandon him. Then, when he explains it all, they look like fools. The fact that I can’t tell what’s going to happen doesn’t mean he can’t. “Don’t doubt me” he always says. I believe he has a plan for how this will all play out. This “apology” is part of that plan.
Man, the ratings for his show on Monday are going to be stratospheric!

Do you want him to lose all his sponsors over one stupid word? He is not a coward— he did it for his listener. He is smart enough not to cut off his nose to spite his face.
