Somehow Rush blames Liberals for his liable of Sandra Fluke.
When I am going out for lunch I normally tune into AM talk radio so I can soak up how those on other side of the political spectrum view issues. I caught Rush on day two of the Sandra Fluke story. He was venomous in his relentless and wall-to-wall attacks and I began to wonder why he was spending so much time on the issue. Clearly, he is not obsessed with lady parts. In my opinion, Rush’s actions significantly impacted the Republican position in the contraception debate, and not positively.
In America, the Religious freedom position is politically tenable although a position of last resort. Remember that in the end days of Slavery and Jim Crow the Religious Freedom argument was brought forth and even today the tactic is used in defense of in-defendable Intelligent Design, among other issues. The Republicans might have held the debate if they stayed on target with the RF position despite the Democrat’s protests. That is, of course, Rush started to talk about Sandra Fluke.
Rush’s fluke was that he, in all actuality, probably didn’t know that his position was so far out of the mainstream. He handed the Democrats an Ace. Now the idea that the Republicans are anti-Woman’s health is demonstrable and the left is playing its much improved hand with gusto.
Facing mounting pressure from fellow conservatives and seeing advertisers flee his program, Rush finally apologized. But the simple act of admitting personal fault didn’t mean that Rush actually had to admit personal fault. He pinned the whole thing on Liberals. What. The. Fuck.
“In short, he said, he had a moment of weakness and stooped to the left’s level.” – The Blaze
How? I mean HOW?
Did Sandra start off by calling Rush a huge bag full of shit? No. Rush started it. If you start such an insane rant against an activist, how are you the one who is stooping?
“In fighting them [liberals] I became like them,” Limbaugh explained. “I do not think she is either of those two words. I did not think last week she was either of those two words.”
Rush. I listened to you obsess over the intimate working of Sanda Fluke’s genitals, the brain above them, and the genitals that created her for two motherfucking hours. You either meant every vile word or you were just stirring up controversy within your own audience, complete in the knowledge that what you said is absolutely untrue. I have been listening to you for years and every time I think that I know for certain if you’re the paid-off puppet master that I think you are or just one of the puppets, you say something of such a high (almost laudable) level of idiocy that I have to reassess what, if anything, makes you tick.
Rush also claimed that seeing his advertisers leave his program did not impact his decision to fo-poligize. Which begs the question; why not retract his statement on Day 2?
“Everyone was being true to their nature, except me.”
That’s the only thing he said that is moderately true. You had to go against your nature and apologize, even if you didn’t really apologize at all.
Someone please link me to pictures of cats, I am far too angry.
If you decide to click my source link and are as pissed as me, do not, I REPEAT, DO NOT look at the comments.
