Rush Limbaugh who labeled a Georgetown law student a Slut for daring to speak about contraception made a condescending apology as a result of pressures emerging from many sources. No doubt at all the major source of pressure being from sponsors who began to leave his show (Despite his prevarication to the contrary). ProFlowers.com was only the latest to withdraw advertising. Quicken loans, Sleep Number, Citrix, Carbonite and LegalZoom withdrew previously. Arrogantly, before his apology occurred he stated he would replace all of the advertisers that left, as he had previously rejected many advertisers, he claimed.
Even many of his fellow Conservatives had called on him to apologize.
“I descended to (the left’s) level when I used those two words to describe Sandra Fluke.” Rush claimed. Yet another slam amidst the debacle caused by his rant on Fluke. The left generally and literally is more respectful of women and women’s rights than the blowhard Rush Limbaugh, and the conservative circle in general.
The N.O.W. wants him fired.
Rush went on ranting that liberals would never apologize for saying things about conservatives, about which he did not go on to illustrate. For all intents and purposes sounding like a scolded pre-adolescent child. Complaining about non-existent double-standards was next, the same tactic most Conservatives use when caught with their pants down.
I have listened to this man on various occasions when listening on the car radio. If you listen from an objective point of view you will find the lies add up in quick order.
