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.

Speech may be free but someone has to pay the bills for the network.
No sponsors = no broadcast = no (or severly muted) speech.
Rush slandered a non public figure without any evidence of being a “Slut.” He is liable for defamation of character.
He should have stuck with her being a Marxist like Obama.
I agree with you. Rush’s apology is equal to the false apologies we get from the left. It’s just a means to an end. Now Rush can move on to what he does best which is expose the hypocrisy of the left and try to rally the troops on the right. Remember we must defeat Obama in the fall. That is our sole mission. No time for distractions like the slut at Georgetown.
She is a professional leftwing activist
IOW, we’re just negotiating over price...
He backed down! end of story. The almighty dollar wins again. It’s awesome how a mattress company can control the most powerful man on the radio.Cant wait to hear the stuttering and excuses Monday. Man the F**K up Rush.
This is not a good thing. Now I am really worried. Should not have ordered the two cases of TifBT.
Looks like Rush has givin up being a man for the MONEY!
One more falls to the DARK SIDE!
Well I think she is a slut and a bitch. How many decent women would go into details of their premarital sex life in front of congress and 300,000,000 Americans?
It isn’t sexist at all. She muted herself and very unelegantly.
Seriously, if we don’t fulfill her demand “of right” will she return demanding Valtrex???
No, she is absolutely a thieving Manx. She knew what the response would be and she is wearing as a badge of honor. Basking in the glow, as it were.
This her job. Her density. Her dream come true.
The whole thing is BS for it’s construct. However, it’s cellophane veil screams synthetic argument and self serving intent.
No, I didn’t use the description without 1st considering what it might say about me but, was struck by what a muted response would imply.
I don’t what anyone does in their bedroom but if they insist on TMI then I calls em likes I sees em.
No one likes to be taken advantage of and she seeks to do so with the power of the government at her behest or mere asking.
FH, well not really. I wouldn’t touch her with a barge pole.
like Clinton it all depends on the meaning of the word “slut” then again what damages does she have, how has her stirling reputation been tarnished?
were her statements about a cost of $3000 for BC accurate?
Nothing hurts Republicans and Conservatives more than “apologies.”
Any womyn who demands that others pay for her contraception IS a slut. And a whore.
I agree with you completely. I have listened to Rush since the late 80’s and found him lately to have become lazy. He goes off on these name calling tirades too often. I think he thinks he is being funny, but it really just boorish. I actually like the show better when he is on vacation and one of the Marks is on.
It just continues for another few days for Americans to see without a shadow of a doubt what RATS, Libs and media whores think is important.
We have soldiers being killed in cold blood in Trashkanistan without a peep of protest from the left and the only thing they can get their panties in a wad over is a mild insult directed at an oversexed law student who by her own admission can't keep her legs together.
Maher Responds to Limbaugh: I Can Call Palin C-word Because ‘I Don’t Have Sponsors - I’m on HBO’
that sums it up plus hes a libtard
If you meant to misspell density which I think you did that is pretty funny. Ok Vendome, points taken.
He used precisely the word choice that every Democrat caught in the same sort of issue uses. His “apology” is an exercise in satire.
I hope Monday will produce a long string of ‘rat “choice of words” apologies, and the statement that produced them. He has an opportunity to use one of Breitbart’s “rope a dope” moves here.
LOL. I typed real slow and accurately. I see your point as well but I don’t like being taking advantage of. Not by a simpleton.
Could have been more clever and beguiling, maybe even asked me if I want toast with my breakfast and how I take my coffee.....
Its one thing to be in business and have to temper your language to keep business flowing in, its another to expect something for nothing as in the phony drummed up contraceptive issue... my point is simply that Rush can’t always say what he and we would like to be said.
