Rush Limbaugh Actually Apologizes to Sandra Fluke

by at . Comments

Now we know what it takes to make Rush Limbaugh issue an apology: money. Or a lackthereof.

Facing the loss of sponsors following his referral to Sandra Fluke - a Georgetown student who tearfully explained to the press last week why health insurance companies should cover the cost of contraception - as a slut, the radio host actually took to his website yesterday and wrote the following:

"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."

Is Limbaugh still wildly off base? Of course. Fluke is pushing for health insurance companies to cover birth control, not American citizens. And her argument is based around non "social activities," specifically the case of how contraception can assist with medical conditions such as ovarian cysts.

And why doesn't Rush create a similar stir over health insurance companies covering Viagra?

Still... the guy apologized. That's amazing. Sadly, this also means the Mayans were correct: the world is clearly about to end.

Why would anyone with a brain listen to anything that Limbaugh says? He is nothing more than an over-paid liar and story-teller as well as a "thrice divorced (soon to be four) junkie that dropped out of college". He also has a reputation for preaching that drug-users (not just dealers) need to be sent to prison. This phony blow-hard has taken more oxycontin than many dealers have ever sold! These are the facts yet this self-righteous republican continues to make millions because his followers are too stupid to read or listen to other opinions.

Sorry - what I meant to say is you are a Murderer. You give money to an organization that is sworn to obey the head of the Jesuits - who are under orders to destroy America. You know this Sandra - this means SLUT is not strong enough. You are SCUM OF SCUM, DIRT OF DIRT You force others to pay for your life style. SCUM The Living GOD, King of Kings and Lord of Lords will now turn you over to the destruction of your flesh. You god Lucifer the Looser and Liar cannot stop what GOD has set in motion. DR WILLIAM B.

Thiis Sandra Fluke is really some piece of work. She is a Liberals SCUM, forcing others to pay for her sex habits. She attends Law School at a Jesuit University Remember - Interview with Hanz Kovlenbach, 4/15/1000: "We must now destroy the United States." That makes Sandra worse than scum - she supports a Private Corporation (Georgetown University) that is under orders to kill you. She know this. Slut - yes, Murdered - yes. Dr William B. Mount

Rush's Fake Apology!!
A person does Not apologize and come up with another reference that has Nothing to do with what they apologizing for. This topic was Never about sneakers or running. It started off with a young woman who had a message that Needed to be heard. In his own words, for over 20 years Limbaugh has been saying what he wanted to say, No matter how absurd. Ms. Fluke entered into the spotlight with a quiet reserved filled with self dignity. He "rushed" to tear Sandra Fluke apart, a layer at a time. For once while wearing gasoline drawers and carrying a blowtorch, he lit fire to his own a@ss, and the world got to see it. It is up to Ms. Fluke to accept his Fake apology, but the apology will Not make up for what he intentionally called her and used her Name for!!
