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.
Does he have advertisers, or supporters?
Hoping to get a Mayer of a channel is like hoping to remove an infomercial from time the channel is otherwise unable to sell.
The only apology I see that Rush SHOULD have made, was that the language he used was not nearly strong enough.
But mere modern English sometimes fails, and we must fall back on weak weasel-words like “slut” or “prostitute”, neither of which fully convey the contemptible behavior we have seen from Sandra Fluke.
She actually thinks she is the wounded innocent one here.
There is increasing evidence that this endocrine abnormality can be reversed by treatment with widely available standard medications which are leading medicines used in this country for the treatment of adult onset diabetes, metformin (Glucophage 500 or 850 mg three times per day or 1000mg twice daily with meals), pioglitazone (Actos 15-30 mg once a day), rosiglitazone (Avandia 4-8 mg once daily) or a combination of these medications. These medications have been shown to reverse the endocrine abnormalities seen with polycystic ovary syndrome within two or three months.
“Not before asking his locals to sit back and give his audience a chance to be heard..... “
I hear you...but I’m just relaying my observations. Us listeners (and even subscribers) still come in second, in his book.
But it has worked, for decades now - it may be tough on us (I’ve just spent much of the day defending him), but that is who he is...
“Yes. Schultz apologized wrt Laura Ingraham. I remember seeing it.”
OK, that is once. Now, had Laura Ingraham said she needed 1,000+ sex partners each year?
If she needs to spend $60-$100 per month on her “activities” perhaps she’d be better off taking the same money and going to the gym.
I thought she was in college...not a brothel. For what reason should we be paying for this tramp’s personal fun? Perhaps she should focus more on her studies and less on opening her legs and then it won’t cost her $3000 during law school for medicine which is optional for most women.
since when has any apology ever been good enough for a lefty. Once they smell blood, they keep attacking.. I would.
He will lose his more national advertisers before he gains new ones because the left saw what the pressure will do.
I originally thought his use of “slut” was not the best way to address this situation but he just gave the left a victory.
Expect more people pressuring stations to drop him.. advertisers to pull their ads and more of a promise of the “fairness doctrine” to be used as a campaign talking point.
Don’t be naive. If leftists had succeeded in getting Rush off the air, which is exactly what they were (and still are) trying to do....WE would have lost, not Rush. He’s got enough wealth to live out the rest of his life and then some in extreme luxury. It’s no skin off his nose if the leftists run him off...except that his love of country and patriotism would suffer.
He did the right thing here. He’s still got his platform, the leftists have had the wind sucked out of their “let’s destroy rush sails”.... and Rush continues to point out the truth of who and WHAT leftists and Democrats really are.
This is a crucial time in our history, right before THE most crucial election ever. Rush is right....
I do not give a damn where you buy your matresses call the advertisers
anyway and tell them you will NEVER buy their product!!!!, and WHY!!!
Rush should take a lesson from BOR on this one.
Ignorance on your part is not immunity from harmful effects.
even when you figure monthly cost...the figure is way off.
That is why she is getting so much flack.
She lied about who she is.
She lied about coverage being denied for real medical conditioins.
She lied about the cost.
She failed to mention she has been an activist for years.
She presented women as sex machines who can’t help themselves.
What else are we supposed to think?
It was a cringe-inducing spectacle that the libs tried to paint as heart-wrenching and critical for “all” women.
She - and they- deserve ridicule and scorn.
Should the terms “slut” or “prostitute” been bandied about?
Probably not...the argument could have been made without that.
Meanwhile....Bill Maher plods on despite the vitriolic things he as said, including referring to Sarah Palin as a “tw*t”
And Sarah Palin didn’t even go before congress asking for them to finance her promiscuous sex life.
Oscar Mayer makes Bologna. Bill MAHER spews it.
I think the E at the end of her name doesn't perform the usual function. My understanding is that her name rhymes with f**k.
“Rush is no fool. The apology was fine after I read it again and thought about it.”
You think the media will see it your way? This is going to
be on everything from O’Reilly to the View. This is blood in
the water and the only help he’s going to get is from Levin.
It’s going to be hard to listen to him and keep the impression of a “weak little sissy fuzz ball” at bay.
“After reading this apology, I think Rush got it right. He apologized for the wrong choice of words in describing Ms. Fluke. He didn’t back down from criticizing her absurd testimony to Pelosis panel of lefties.”
Your words have captured my thinking on this exactly. We just lost one of our warriors with Andrew Breitbart’s death. We all will want to support Rush as he moves forward with contesting the Progressive rot being promoted in our country. This is an important year in the struggle and we must not lose focus of that.
Rush, we’ll be following you Monday as you come back with your batteries recharged and your wonderful wit reloaded.
I agree, re_nortex. I'm disappointed that Rush apologized to the Slut. I'm sure Pelosi and the democRATs are high-fiving, thinking they won this round.
BRAVO! Exactly my sentiments. Enough with the wringing of the hands and crying in our beer...organize! and start making use of tcrlaf’s suggestions.
It's a poke in the eye.
Good job, Rush.
I see you’re from Canada. Enough said.
