Rush Limbaugh’s ‘Apology’

Apology != apology
Wingnuts • Views: 28,335

This is how the GOP gets off the hook for not distancing themselves from Rush Limbaugh. Rush “apologizes” instead, something that happens about as often as a total solar eclipse: A Statement From Rush.

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.

I don’t have to point out that this isn’t really an apology, do I? Limbaugh’s obviously hoping this will be enough to get some advertisers back and calm down the media firestorm, but after spewing unbelievably misogynistic hate speech all week to a right wing audience of 30 million people, his non-apology apology may not have the desired effect.
