Skip to comments.A Statement from Rush (Rush offers apology to Slut!)
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.
Idiot!!! That shows money is his only religion.
Very well put.
And, as usual, the libs are relying on ignorance to perform their sleight of hand.
And NOBODY knows that better than Rush.
He has betrayed us.

LOL! You're right, BG! It's a back-handed slap at the slutty chicklet who puts her ankles behind her ears to "keep fit" by letting the line of faceless "suitors" at her door lay pipe the live-long day...
Yup...his ratings will be through the roof during the first hour Monday.
I've been using "round-heeled floozie" on my blog. Also fitting. If this woman didn't want these names attached to her, she shouldn't have gone before congress to ask for money to keep it up. Rush was possibly too kind. I hope he is shopping around for a radio station to buy...
Not me. You Rush lickers can have him.
Same deal as he won't criticize homos for fear of losing sponsors.
So when does Bill Maher apologize to Palin for calling her a c*nt and a dumb tw*t?
I’m wondering the same thing. But here is something even more interesting.
In June of 2009 David Letterman talked about Sarah Palin’s 14 year old daughter getting “Knocked Up” by Alex Rodriquez. If you break this down it’s statuatory rape.
So Letterman thinks if funny if Sarah Palin’s 14 year old undergoes statuatory rape, but Limbaugh calls a woman a slut and this is worse? How? And did Letterman ever give the Palin family an acceptable apology? How many sponsors did Letterman lose?
I really believe this is selective outrage put forth by the left to win their arugments. They don’t care if Sarah Palin is called a cunt or a twat. And they don’t care if a 14 year old girl is the object of a joke about statuatory rape.
None of Rush’s old, current, and any future sponsors will get one dime of my cash. So the big LOSER is Rush. CAVE!
I'm not a conspirator individual but this whole think stinks....from Fluke being a hardcore activist..to Ob’s phone call to the lame brain, like a President shouldn't be busy running our nation....and now Rush apologizing....just too obvious IMO.
Then sponsors going for the stations purse strings....yep all boils down to the money and the power it welds.
In days of yore Rush was more creative and might have had an “adopt a Georgetown co-ed” drive for their social needs. Double down, don’t just get their birth control, pick up the tab for their wine and lattes as well.Poor little rich girls. Name-calling isn’t really very effective or even interesting or fun. He can do better and has done in the past.
I'm off looking for audio on this ... underline was my editing ... ;-)
Are you KIDDING me!!! YOU NEED TO BE ASKED, this is exactly what
Is wrong with our side!!!! WE SIT THERE AND TAKE IT!!!!! GET OFF
YOUR A$$ and FIGHT!!! Or our country is GONE!!!!!
“The truth never needs an apology.”
The TRUTH no longer applies.
TRUTH is now considered a hate crime.
But it’s OK with these same outraged left media wonks if Bill Maher calls a sitting US Female Governor a “Stupid Twat”, or if a Fat crazy guy on MSNBC calls that same female Gov a “Dumpster Slut”.
Or if that same network pimps the “Slut Walk for Reproductive Rights”.
WHY? Because they are DEMOCRATS, silly! Rules and laws no longer apply to anyone who calls themself a DEMOCRAT.
Already canceled my Carbonite subscription and then Rush backs down. Oh well...
It's possible that Clear Channel told him to apologize or he was off the air (which is exactly what the left has been angling for in this whole thing.)
I have a suspicion it, in conjunction with Game Change, was orginally intended to target Palin.
When she didn't get in the race they decided to run with it anyway.
Not quite the direct hit they had wanted but still able to be used with some effect against generic Republicans.
Ms fluke said she needs $3,000 in contraceptives to survive law school. That’s a lot of boyfriends. Who are these boyfriends?
I totally agree. Rush is a good guy. He was making a point. When a person with a brain sits and thinks about it, that is what taxpayers are being forced to do, pay for her sex life and irresponsibility.
I always paid for my own BC, I would never have even thought that other people should pay for my BC.
