WASHINGTON (AP) -- Conservative talk show host Rush Limbaugh apologized Saturday to a Georgetown University law student he had branded a "slut" and "prostitute" after fellow Republicans as well as Democrats criticized him and several advertisers left his program.

This isn’t over. Rush said to Bo Sneardly this would be bigger than the Wounded Warriors thing. This has happened again and again. Some of his fans always abandon him. Then, when he explains it all, they look like fools. The fact that I can’t tell what’s going to happen doesn’t mean he can’t. “Don’t doubt me” he always says. I believe he has a plan for how this will all play out. This “apology” is part of that plan.
Man, the ratings for his show on Monday are going to be stratospheric!
An old banned freeper, Al Gator once said:
Refusal to stoop to my enemy’s level, only gets me cut OFF at my knees!
You really need to re-read Sun Tzu.
If you aren’t in it to WIN, you aren’t in it. You are just taking up air space, and getting in the effin way.
The time is now. There is no other alternative.
Do you want him to lose all his sponsors over one stupid word? He is not a coward— he did it for his listener. He is smart enough not to cut off his nose to spite his face.
You mean like FUMR?
“Rush, broken defeated old man by the venomous radical dominant left-wing media.
Many fools such as yourself have made that idiotic prediction in years past. You’re in a long, long line. LOL
This is same reason why right-wing talk show hosts never talk about homosexuality. America is lost.
“Rush is a coward.”
As soon as you have the courage Rush has displayed throughout his career and as soon as you do 1/1,000,000th as much as he has done for the conservative movement, please get back to us.
If he’s only in it for the money, what does that make him?
Rush knows the left like every inch of his gloriously naked body...he knows exactly what he is doing.
AP get’s is wrong again as always, the slut is not a law student
I don’t read it as an apology. I read it as a poke in the eye.
I agree with you. He proved himself to be of greater character than Letterman and Maher.
I love Rush, but he could have made the same case without the slanderous words.
That said, she is still a slut.
I can say that. I am not a major radio/TV personality.
I’d love to see a picture of her “boyfriend”.
I’ve listened to Rush Limbaugh on and off over the years and to me he provides an entertaining hour or two by discussing events and ideas, some conservative and some a comment on people or society. He is in the radio show business and some of his provocative comments are just to add spice to the show. This time there was enough blow back that advertisers were leaving him and stations were getting heat.
It is good business for him to apologize. Its long term effect is about the same as Obama’s apology to the Afghans, stupid but what seemed necessary to Rush or Obama.
He isn’t a Republican candidate or party leader, so the whole flap shouldn’t effect Republicans - it’s the Democrats who try to link Rush to the party.
Rush was scootered ... as in Libby.
A guy with a career?
I'm not showing up at my job if they don't pay me.
Go Rush, YOU ARE RIGHT!!
