Rush: “I sincerely apologize to Ms. Fluke”; Update: Ironic tweet of the day
Hotair ^ | 03/03/2012 | ED MORRISSEY

Posted on 03/03/2012 8:32:15 PM PST by SeekAndFind

Rush Limbaugh has posted a statement on his website this afternoon, forwarded by his brother David (one of my friends on line), apologizing for calling Sandra Fluke an insulting name while discussing her claims. It’s impossible to retain the context of his apology by excerpting it, so I hope Rush will not mind me posting it in its entirety:

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 think Rush did the right thing in apologizing to Fluke. However, let’s keep in mind that it was Fluke who made her sexual activity a matter of national political debate by insisting that the government pass laws and regulations forcing employers and insurers to provide her free contraception, and apparently as much as she and others demand. It’s Republicans who believe that contraception should remain a private affair, and that employers and insurers should be free to decide whether to cover contraception for their employees and customers or not. Democrats used Fluke to demand that those choices be stripped from private enterprises and instead be forced by the executive branch to entirely subsidize contraception.

That is the argument we should be making, as Republicans and conservatives. If you want your sexual choices to remain private, don’t use the government to force other people to subsidize them. Then we won’t have to turn the sex lives of Georgetown law school students into topics for political speculation.

Update: Along those same lines, does Donna Brazile also now oppose the government mandate to force employers and insurers to have a role in the decision to use contraception? She tweeted this message not too long ago (via Keder):

Agree! The government should have no role in contraception, and shouldn’t force employers or insurers to have a role in it, either. Keep it between the woman, her sexual partner, and her doctor. Well said.

Oh, wait, Brazile meant this in support of the mandate? She seems just as badly misinformed on the issue as her media colleagues … or as deliberately obtuse.

RE: The instant that I read that Rush ( who I’ve admired since ‘84) that he called some woman (who I believe is a compunction-less liar) a “slut”, I knew it was an error.

________________________

Please Explain to us why observing a behavior that fits the definition of a word is in error.

This woman demands that we pay for her sexual activities (where she cannot even exercise self control that it would cost her more than $3,000 a year in birth control), and someone who points this out should now apologize?

Do we intend to live in a topsy turvy world?

If you want to,be my guest. As for me, I intend to call on Monday (if I can get through) to show Rush my support and most of all, to send Ms. Fluke a message -— If you advertise your personal promiscuity to the world, you ought to accept it when people use the word that describes your lifestyle.

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.

“I need other people to fork over $3,000 per year for my contraception.”

Her father must be very proud.

I think Mark is going to be really conflicted on this one. He is, I believe, a good friend of Rush. Mark will struggle to rationalize this betrayal, because Mark is a fan, too. I worry for Mark Levin's heart. I agree with you: we live in a parallel universe. I had breakfast with a friend (actually, an ex-wife - can they be friends?) who believes she lives her life as a conservative. She was all for the government compelling free contraceptives, especially if it meant those evil bastards in the Catholic church had to pay. I sat there stunned, fork halfway between plate and mouth.

I feel like a Bush-supporter today. I had his back for two terms over the war in Iraq and Afghanistan, then bags us on illegal immigration and TARP.

A lot of us had Rush’s back over this, then he comes out with lame-assed apology over something he was right on.

"Rush betrayed us. He lost me today. I’ve listened and been informed since 1991. Rush was by far our most influential advocate, until now. Today, we lost the election, and the country."

Very well said. Rush shot himself in the foot, but shot his core listening audiance in the head. The life boat was leaking water, and Rush threw us overboard, I wonder what Mark Levin has to say about this? Defending Rush, and then getting shafted, too. Limbaugh dosen't need me anymore.

“She wants me to pay for her recreational sex so, maybe she’s not a slut but she’s still a whore.”

I’m not so sure. I still have trouble believing that Fluke has ever had sex with a man (except maybe once, as an experiment or something), or ever intends to. If I’m right, then she has no need of the contraception she seeks to force G-Town to pay for.

So I don’t know what that would make her, other than a Socialist...

How about getting some different sponsors? For the last 20 years, the ratings battle in talk radio has been for the distant 2nd to Rush. This was threatening to kill his show? Not bloody likely. DemonRats have been trying to shut him down for 20 years via abuse of the legal system, “equality” bills in Congress, “hate-speech” legislation, you name it.

A true conservative listens to Rush to educate...not as a daily bread.

I was a liberal back then and listened to Rush. I was CONVERTED and listening to him everyday was like preaching to the choir.

You get it or you don’t. Have not listened to Rush for an entire hour for the past 10 years because I get conservatism and right-wing-ism (if that’s the word)

Does anybody really, sincerely think these sponsors are coming back???? The libs are in for the kill. Even with this lame-azz apology, any sponsor that has already quit will be attacked like crazy for returning to Limbaugh's show. Plus now he has betrayed millions of his listeners. Limbaugh is finished. Rush said nothing wrong in his original statement, and should have stood is ground. Now he is a pansy in the dust.

I repeat myself, since you obviously did not read the thread:

Rush was the main voice that ridiculed the left, and kept the pansy-assed Republicans from straying into pansy-assed territory. Today, he surrendered his left and right testicle, plus at lest three inches of what was left. Now he is forever neutered. The left has proven that he can be bought, can be checked, can be neutralized.

The winners are the evil left, and the Republican elite. Permission has been given to nominal Republican candidates to tack hard left, since they no longer have to worry about Rush, or any other voice from the right.

We are screwed. The country is screwed.

Do you get it now?

You describe an apparently sexually active college student, and that alone would not (by my def) make her a "slut".

(Just looking at some online defs, a slut would be a prostitute or one given to numerous one-night-stands. Also, one who has casual sexual relations frequently with different partners; and isn't exactly "choosy").

The fact that she (apparently) chooses to lie about the costs and the circumstances that make her somehow a victim seemingly make her a liar before congress, which, my FRiend, would be a crime.

I would, however, hesitate to call her a "slut" without further knowledge of her social habits (and I'm not the slightest bit interested in those, and nobody should be.)

I have listened to Rush a very long time. Have been to a Rush to excellence tour, have his books and videos. I still like Rush and usually listen to him, BUT, if you are looking for a hero, look elsewhere. He is not someone you would want in your foxhole. He is basically a coward. Is that as bad as calling a prostitute a slut?

Rush is an establishment Republican. Tea Party guy he is not. He is rich and famous and he likes it that way. He wouldn't risk that for any cause.

Rush has always said ...don't worry about the media. You can't do anything about them. They are just a fact of life and besides “I am equal time”. HARDLY! Just a pimple on an elephant's a$$ compared to the networks, left wing cable shows (that includes Faux News), thousands of left wing newspapers and radio stations.

A tremendous disservice to his loyal listeners. Protecting his own empire rather than fight our real enemy, the news media. We cry about Obama getting a pass, double standards, and how morons like Harry Reid (cowboy poetry supporter with your money), Nancy Pelosi (If not for Botox, there would be nothing in her head), keep getting reelected.

It is the POWER of the corrupt press. If we don't change that ..... NOTHING will ever change.

Don't give me back, what about our heroes Rush, Sean, Mark, & Glenn? Did any of them cover Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s news conference? Cowards all.

it only harms the right at a very important time.

Why, Judy, should it hurt the right? Rush disarmed the left. He didn't apologize for critizing the hypocrisy and political motivation behind Fluke's long-planned motive for attacking Georgetown's morality-based policies. We've since learned that this was Flukes motive for applying to Georgetown. She wanted to punish them. Her allies want desperately to punish Rush. Rush apologized for his choice of words, something the left never does. Now the whole nation can see the remarkable anger of a disturbed graduate of a comic-book college major in Feminine Studies, native .... She chose a law school in order to straighten them out. She also tells you more about the legal profession than they might want exposed.

Would you, or any of his listeners not listen to him because of what he said? The people most likely to be hurt are his advertisers, because a significant block of the majority of the nation will not subscribe to Carbonite, or go to Sleeptrain. Rush has a larger audience than anyone on radio, and this should not affect that. It may enhance it. And many of his listeners are subscribers, and can circumvent the airwaves - though that is certainly being threatened with control. Many of us have some direct experience with vicious and supercilious feminists, many of whom may wish they had the option to be promiscuous.

The reproductive rights business is an old tool of the angry left, and they are good at using it. Remember Anita Hill. Don't get drawn in. I'll bet Rush's audience is even larger on Monday. The real concern is what the Marxist who loves Chavez on Obama’s FCC board will try to take advantage of what he may see as an opportunity. The ugly language used by the left so often will be avoided by the media, but not the public.

We'll see how Rush's former advertisers fair, having succumb to the Alinsky mob. Any bets on how long Sleeptrain or Carbonite, or Quicken Loans survive, at least without changing their names?

DICTIONARY DEFINITION OF A SLUT: Slut or slattern is a term applied to an individual who is considered to have loose sexual morals or who is sexually promiscuous.

Why would one need more than $3,000 in contraceptives a year if one were not sexually promiscuous?

It’s amazing to me how many have missed the brilliance of what Rush did here.

Had he not said anything, the narrative would have been “Rush called her a slut.” End of story. A distortion, but Rush would have lost in the court of public opinion.

As it is, he retracts NOTHING but that word “slut.” And in his apology, which will be read by possibly millions of females who would never tune into his show, he gets to reiterate his brilliant points once more, and again devastates the arguments of Nancy Pelosi and the feministas.

Read the apology again. it is basically a synopsis of everything he said in his show, which was AWESOME.

It is a master stroke of genius, which has eluded those who aren’t nearly as smart as El Rushbo.

DON’T doubt him. ;-)

Actually, the attempts at that conversation occurred some time ago, back when I thought the marriage could be saved.

The world is better off when people remain married, but sometimes it is impossible to suppress cognitive-dissonance forever. Nevertheless, it is better to try to remain friends, rather then be forever enemies. You agree, right?

If Rush’s apology is enough for you to close shop on our beloved country—you are anti-Rush and anti-American. You may as well sign up with Media Matters. If you care about your country you should get up off your A$$ and put the heat on those sponsors, help the GOP candidate of your choice and vote Republican no matter which one of the three wins. You are one that is helping things fall apart!

It was Glenn Beck who started this eventful week with a commentary about “jellyfish capitalism” as he put it.

He pinned the nail on the head about businesses caving into pressure and having no spine.

Frankly, Beck was the prophet of what came down in the days ahead.
