AUDIO: Limbaugh On Fluke Flap: I Descended To The Left's Level, I Became Like Them
RealClearPolitics ^ | March 5, 2012 | RealClearPolitics

Posted on 03/05/2012 9:48:11 AM PST by i88schwartz

Rush Limbaugh explains his apology on his Monday, March 5, 2012 program.

LIMBAUGH: This is the mistake I made: In fighting them on this issue last week, I became like them. Against my own instincts, against my own knowledge, against everything that I know to be right and wrong, I descended to their level when I used those two words to describe Sandra Fluke. That was my error. I became like them.

And I feel very badly about that. I've always tried to maintain a very high degree of integrity and independence on this program. Nevertheless, those two words were inappropriate, they were uncalled for, they distracted from the point I was actually trying to make. And I again sincerely apologize to Ms. Fluke for using those two words to describe her.

Okay, Rush—drop it now! Enough is enough, and you were right in the first place.

Rush’s show has been quite good so far today.

As far as his cowardly former advertisers go...SCREW THEM!

Weak. I actually had to turn it off.

Of course, I can listen because I’m unemployed. I might squirm the same way with that kind of $$$ at stake. :(

Rush aces it again. He was right when he said he desended to their level. Rush has class and he just proved it.

His lib advertisers are going to feel the pain!

Now... If Ms. Fluke would just apologize to all her ‘friends’ at Georgetown for calling them ‘broke sluts who are likely to get pregnant’, then everything would be OK.

He would have been OK if he had used a less offensive word like Floosie.

Personally I like Strumpet.

Rush, retire. Stop digging that hole. Stop groveling to lefty BS. If you can’t fight then let someone who can.

I’m torn. Rush’s explanation was a good one, but then again, I think of Breitbart who would have got right in their faces and told them where to go. He would have never backed down. Kinda looks like Rush is doing that. That’s how the media is already reporting it.

This was crafted by a political consultant. Rule #1 in politics is to try to turn any apology around into an attack on your opponent in order to shift some of the focus away from your “mistake”.

Too late.

The left have Rush`s white flag and they will proudly display it over and over.

NEVER apologize to a marxist.

The Rush apology tour makes thing worse for him.

Now they smell blood and will intensify their efforts on advertisers.

Too late.

I disagree. It was terrifically strong. He turned it around on them. It was not what I expected.

I have to say that I thought Rush may be about to retire this weekend, what with losing those sponsors and all.

But I don’t think that anymore. I’m quite happy to admit that I was WRONG-O!

He has a point. Go to any left-wing nutball website and try to read more than two paragraphs without the F-bomb making an appearance.

He must not come to this forum. This and others similar can be found on this conservDear Ass Clown, You swine. You vulgar little maggot. Don’t you know that you are pathetic? You worthless bag of filth. As we say in Texas, I’ll bet you couldn’t pour piss out of a boot with instructions on the heel. You are a canker. A sore that won’t go away. I would rather kiss a lawyer than be seen with you. You are a fiend and a coward, and you have bad breath. You are degenerate, noxious and depraved. I feel debased just for knowing you exist. I despise everything about you. You are a bloody nardless newbie twit protohominid chromosomally aberrant caricature of a coprophagic cloacal parasitic pond scum and I wish you would go away. You’re a putrescence mass, a walking vomit. You are a spineless little worm deserving nothing but the profoundest contempt. You are a jerk, a cad, a weasel. Your life is a monument to stupidity. You are a stench, a revulsion, a big suck on a sour lemon. You are a bleating fool, a curdled staggering mutant dwarf smeared richly with the effluvia and offal accompanying your alleged birth into this world. An insensate, blinking calf, meaningful to nobody, abandoned by the puke-drooling, giggling beasts who sired you and then killed themselves in recognition of what they had done. I will never get over the embarrassment of belonging to the same species as you. You are a monster, an ogre, a malformity. I barf at the very thought of you. You have all the appeal of a paper cut. Lepers avoid you. You are vile, worthless, less than nothing. You are a weed, a fungus, the dregs of this earth. And did I mention you smell? If you aren’t an idiot, you made a world-class effort at simulating one. Try to edit your writing of unnecessary material before attempting to impress us with your insight. The evidence that you are a nincompoop will still be available to readers, but they will be able to access it more rapidly. You snail-skulled little rabbit. Would that a hawk pick you up, drive its beak into your brain, and upon finding it rancid set you loose to fly briefly before spattering the ocean rocks with the frothy pink shame of your ignoble blood. May you choke on the queasy, convulsing nausea of your own trite, foolish beliefs. You are weary, stale, flat and unprofitable. You are grimy, squalid, nasty and profane. You are foul and disgusting. You’re a fool, an ignoramus. Monkeys look down on you. Even sheep won’t have sex with you. You are unreservedly pathetic, starved for attention, and lost in a land that reality forgot. And what meaning do you expect your delusionally self-important statements of unknowing, inexperienced opinion to have with us? What fantasy do you hold that you would believe that your tiny-fisted tantrums would have more weight than that of a leprous desert rat, spinning rabidly in a circle, waiting for the bite of the snake? You are a waste of flesh. You have no rhythm. You are ridiculous and obnoxious. You are the moral equivalent of a leech. You are a living emptiness, a meaningless void. You are sour and senile. You are a disease, you puerile one-handed slack-jawed drooling meatslapper. On a good day you’re a half-wit. You remind me of drool. You are deficient in all that lends character. You have the personality of wallpaper. You are dank and filthy. You are asinine and benighted. You are the source of all unpleasantness. You spread misery and sorrow wherever you go. I cannot believe how incredibly stupid you are. I mean rock-hard stupid. Dehydrated-rock-hard stupid. Stupid so stupid that it goes way beyond the stupid we know into a whole different dimension of stupid. You are trans-stupid stupid. Meta-stupid. Stupid collapsed on itself so far that even the neutrons have collapsed. Stupid gotten so dense that no intellect can escape. Singularity stupid. Blazing hot mid-day sun on Mercury stupid. You emit more stupid in one second than our entire galaxy emits in a year. Quasar stupid. Your writing has to be a troll. Nothing in our universe can really be this stupid. Perhaps this is some primordial fragment from the original big bang of stupid. Some pure essence of a stupid so uncontaminated by anything else as to be beyond the laws of physics that we know. I’m sorry. I can’t go on. This is an epiphany of stupid for me. After this, you may not hear from me again for a while. I don’t have enough strength left to deride your ignorant questions and half baked comments about unimportant trivia, or any of the rest of this drivel. Duh. The only thing worse than your logic is your manners. I have snipped away most of what you wrote, because, well... it didn’t really say anything. Your attempt at constructing a creative flame was pitiful. I mean, really, stringing together a bunch of insults among a load of babbling was hardly effective... Maybe later in life, after you have learned to read, write, spell, and count, you will have more success. True, these are rudimentary skills that many of us “normal” people take for granted that everyone has an easy time of mastering. But we sometimes forget that there are “challenged” persons in this world who find these things more difficult. If I had known, that this was your case then I would have never read your post. It just wouldn’t have been “right”. Sort of like parking in a handicap space. I wish you the best of luck in the emotional, and social struggles that seem to be placing such a demand on you.
