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.
Of course they will.
What worked was not that Rush wasn’t right. What worked was that our candidates were being forced by the media to either agree this woman was a slut or deny Rush.
It was absurd and that is what Rush does is use the absurd to make a point.
Her Mission is accomplished.
If that is Rushs position on this, thats cool. I will continue to refer to her as a slut though. I find it hilarious and fitting.
I can understand an apology to put an end to the whole stupid incident, but if you’ve got an unmarried woman who needs $1,000 worth of birth control a year over a three year period, I’d think any number of terms would apply: slut, tart, tramp - take your pick.
Rush doesn’t have to keep the ‘dumb slut’ demographic...
But advertisers strongly prefer he did.
Now, watch a number of his former sponsors do an about face and advertise on his show next week. Boy, the libs will be in melt-down mode big time!!
Freep-mail me to get on or off my pro-life and Catholic List:
Please ping me to note-worthy Pro-Life or Catholic threads, or other threads of general interest.
Oh, come on, you spent several hours on FR discussing it.
This is why the left wins....THEY don’t back down.
Shouldnt have backed down...

If that's for real, it needs posted to Breaking.
If true, it confirms my previously lukewarm opinion of RL.
He had it right the first time .. and info since unearthed only magnifies her fraud .. and he's chosen to puss out for the sake of a few gutless advertisers.
Wonder if his wife made him do this.
Looks like Rush really has jumped the shark after all.
Next time go with “Floosie”.
That is all.
It’s Rush’s call, and I support it.
I will still, however, have nothing to do with the sponsors who ran and hid.
03 Mar 2012...the day EIB died.
One more reason to miss Andrew.
