Rush Is Sorry

So Limbaugh apologized for three days of woman-hating vitriol. Like this:
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.


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.
Do you think that is a good apology, now that advertisers are deserting him in droves?

Here are a few of the things he said about Ms. Fluke:
“What does it say about the college co-ed Sandra Fluke, who goes before a congressional committee and essentially says that she must be paid to have sex? What does that make her?” Limbaugh said on his radio show on Wednesday. “It makes her a slut, right? It makes her a prostitute. She wants to be paid to have sex. She’s having so much sex she can’t afford the contraception. She wants you and me and the taxpayers to pay her to have sex. What does that make us? We’re the pimps.”
The conservative radio host continued on to joke, “OK, so she’s not a slut. She’s ‘round heeled.’”
Just a bad choice of words, eh? He should have called her what instead? A harlot? A whore? There are not very many words you can replace in those sentences without replacing his meaning.

Do a reversal on Rush's statements by substituting Viagra for the birth control.

Why should I pay towards Rush's Viagra in my health insurance premia? He's just using it to screw everything in sight, to become the ueberslut of all sluts. Ugh.

Indeed, why should I pay for his deafness treatments in my premia? It seems they are a consequence of his illegal use of drugs, after all. What does it make me if I pay for them? His drug provider or at least someone who enables his immoral lifestyle.

Well, if Rush's long diatribes against Ms. Fluke were not really intended against her, personally, who was he attacking in this comment:
“So Ms. Fluke and the rest of you Feminazis, here’s the deal: If you are going to pay for your contraceptives and thus pay for you to have sex, we want something for it. And I’ll tell you want it is. We want you to post the videos online so we can all watch.”
All us other Feminazis!

Continuing with that earlier reversal, Rush can keep those videos of him having Viagra-enforced/reinforced sex with the other earth worms. (I always think of him when turning over a new bed in the garden because of those white fat grubs in the soil.)

Speaking about turning over the soil, look what else cropped up?
