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.

Rush Limbaugh is literally paying for the comments he made this week about Sandra Fluke.

On Thursday, the Georgetown University Law School student - who has been a vocal supporter of the Obama administration's decision to require insurance companies, even those used by religiously-affiliated employers, to cover the cost of contraception - was denied a chance to speak at a House Oversight and Government Reform hearing on religious liberty and birth control.

She proceeded, though, to take part in a press conference in which Fluke told the story of a friend who was prescribed birth control to deal with ovarian cysts; could not afford the cost when school insurance refused to pay for it; and has since suffered grave medical consequences as a result.

Fluke also said the price of birth control in general can be thousands a year. Limbaugh's response?

He referred to Fluke as a "slut" and a "prostitute" and added:

The Palm Beach County Sherriff's Office bomb squad was dispatched to Rush Limbaugh's Florida home after a suspicious package showed up in his mail.

Apparently wires were visible - never a good sign- and Limbaugh's security team called authorities. Fortunately, they discovered nothing harmful after all.

The suspect package sent to the talk radio mogul turned out to be an electronic plaque having to do with Abraham Lincoln assassin John Wilkes Booth.

Yes, we're serious, and have no more details, sorry.

The package, whatever it was, was Limbaugh by a fan in Pennsylvania for a business-opportunity-related purpose, according to the Palm Beach Police.

No charges will be filed against the sender, who was very apologetic after the incident played out, reports say, because no crime has been committed.

Whether or not Limbaugh wants anything to do with the package, which was deemed safe to open, is up to him. Maybe he'll talk about it on air today.

Are Democrats salivating at facing the guy winning - or at least perceived, by the media, to have the best chance of winning - the Republican presidential race?

Yes, Rush Limbaugh says.

The radio host is one of several prominent Republicans who believe the party would stand a better chance with a less vanilla candidate - and Democrats know it.

"The Democrats are afraid of any candidate they have sought to destroy. You can start with Sarah Palin, you can move on to Santorum. Any - any conservative who shows any interest - the Democrats set out to destroy," he said.

"That’s who they’re genuinely afraid of. They are not hammering Mitt Romney at all, and (Democratic strategist) Donna Brazile let the cat out of the bag. Don’t doubt me."

Do you agree with Limbaugh's point? Makes you wonder if Ron Paul were leading polls, how the White House and other prominent Dems would react.

Rush Limbaugh does not like Barack and Michelle Obama, particularly their desire to lower carbon emissions and the First Lady's crusade against obesity (that hits too close to home, clearly, for the radio pundit). Which is fine, he's entitled to an opinion.

Sometimes his points are clouded by obvious hatred and racism, however.

After Sunday's NASCAR race at which Michelle Obama and Jill Biden were booed, Limbaugh defended the fans who did so, while calling the First Lady "uppity" ...

Rush's argument was, by and large, legitimate and directed at media figures outraged and confused by the booing: It's not a crowd predisposed to like Obama anyway, he's at 44% approval, and people go to sporting events to escape politics.

Fair enough. But then he went overboard bashing the First Lady, who he terms "Moo-Chelle" and tears a new one for (gasp) using a private jet:

Why was former New Mexico Gov. Gary Johnson even at the Republican presidential debate last night? Will he earn more than one percent of the vote? Unclear.

Did he deliver the best line of the night? Unquestionably!

Zinging President Barack Obama for his economic stimulus efforts, the libertarian quipped that "my next-door neighbor's two dogs have created more shovel-ready jobs than this current administration." That's pretty good. Watch:

The joke killed with the audience. But did he rip it off?

Earlier this week, none other than Rush Limbaugh delivered a similar joke on air, discussing his new dog: "The new puppy, honest to God ... more shovel-ready work for me this week than Obama has created in two and a half years."

So what does Rush think of the similarity? "I guess I've become show prep for the GOP debates now, too," Limbaugh joked to the Huffington Post.

Leave it Rush Limbaugh to take Kraft Foods' delicious new Triple Oreo product and turn it into a strangely-worded, quasi-racial attack on President Obama.

The radio host is no stranger to making controversial comments, but this diatribe from Wednesday (August 17) was a doozy even by his lofty standards.

"Kraft Foods is going to launch a new Oreo ... It's a Triple Double Oreo. Well, what it's going to be here, it's actually a biracial cookie," he said, adding:

"You've got three chocolate wafers, and then you've got the white vanilla cream, the cream, and then there's a chocolate cream. The Triple Double Oreo."

"You wait, it isn't going to be long before it's called the Or-Bam-eo, or something. Well, it's a biracial cookie, here ... In the midst of all this talk of obesity."

"And, I mean, every time Michelle Obama goes out there and talks about healthful eating, the food industry responds with, 'Oh, yeah? Take this.'"

"And Kraft comes up with the Or-Bam-eo, the triple double-dipper."

Well, there you have it folks. Do you think Rush is using "Oreo" as a racist term for Obama, or just rambling? And how good does that cookie sound??! Discuss.
