There’s nothing wrong in Rush’s apology. It was heartfelt and honest. He felt he violated his own sense of ethics and he apologized.
This is what decent people do. I wish more people had that kind of courage.
I think then Rush has a distorted set of ethics in this regard, then, if you cannot call a woman who is clearly a slut, a slut. And begging for money from others to keep being a slut.
Calling someone something they are, how can that be a violation of ethics? It’s like not calling a muslim terrorist a muslim terrorist. This is how we wind up having people call what Major Hasan, a muslim extremist terrorist in our own army, instead of calling it a terrorist act, “workplace violence”.
Don’t apologize or be afraid to call things what they are.
