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.
Maybe Rush realized Sun Tzu had a point. Retreat and regroup so you can live to fight another day.
So tell me...how effective is this leaderless opposition if we all flood Select Comfort and get them to stay on board, but all the rest bail for lack of contact?
Quit your screaming and wake the hell up!
That may indeed happen eventually, but not before the election this November. Hell, if he gets too much grief over this made up and created controversy....maybe Rush should start his OWN station like Beck did. He’s got the $$$ to do so.
Holy Shiite, they got to Limbaugh!!
...WE would have lost, not Rush.
I wouldn't have lost a damn thing. I don't need Rush to do my thinking for me. Are you so naive and vacuous that you do?
He did the right thing here.
I'm glad you feel that way and you're free to continue feeling that way. I made no comment as to it being the right or wrong move.
What exactly did he say that was "stooping to her level?"
I don't even see an apology in there.
I see him poking his finger in her eye, which is probably the only place you could poke here without running the risk of contracting an STD.
True. Ed Schultz and others pronounced her name that way as well. Her name rhymes with pluck.
THere's so much Rush never touches, he's already "off the air".
Bingo. Compare his current shows to those from the early 90's...night and day.
Hormone treatments stop the production of oestrogen by putting you in either an artificial state of pregnancy or an artificial state of menopause, which stops your periods.
Once your periods have stopped, the endometriosis is no longer aggravated. However, it is important to note that most of these treatments are not contraceptives.
There are broad types of hormone-based treatment:
gonadotrophin-releasing hormone (GnRH) analogues
Your words have captured my thinking on this exactly. We just lost one of our warriors with Andrew Breitbarts 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, well be following you Monday as you come back with your batteries recharged and your wonderful wit reloaded.
RUSH YOU IGNORANT SLUT!
IMHO Rush himself has sold out and capitulated himself into the theater of the bizarre for the sake of sponsorship and the almighty dollar.
If she wants to embrace her sluthood on national TeeVee, who are we to stand in her way?
Yep - he pointed to the real problem - the politicians and did a not-so-subtle bitch slap on them.
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!!!
“i have to say it: Those of you who are saying Rush sold out dont have the courage in your entire universe that he has in his little finger.
I doubt that. There were other ways to deal with this and he
chose the easy way. Not even a
“I’ll apologize when you make _______ apologize for _______.”
Not much courage in the way he did it. Nope none what so
ever, just fear.
I chose the wrong words in my analogy
Fail on Limbaugh. He chose the RIGHT words.
Do you really think Rush is a one man operation?
And even if he were, I'm a one man operation. I've seen a few of the short videos and watched a video of the whole press conference.
The half hour he devoted to Breitbart occurred before the Arpaio presentation. The "bombscare" or whatever it was occurred during the presentation. My guess is that these events are not unrelated.
Rush could do his show from New Zealand.
So what does Rush do now if the PC Left decide they want him to stop saying “Femi-nazi” on the air?
