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.
As I understand it, he had already lost a few sponsors and now Carbonite has pulled the plug. The liberals have been waiting for a moment like this. It's not, of course, that they are so offended by Rush's crude comments...no, they use worse language and behavior that they parade around in front of us with the purpose of offending. No, this is the excuse they were looking for and now they are brow beating Rush's sponsors and one by one they are pulling out.
I know no one here likes Glenn Beck bc he's a mormon but that is how they succeeded in getting him off Fox. (No way his audience now is the size it once was), they got rid of Dr. Laura the same way.
Rush's apology, I know, was an attempt to stop the sponsors from pulling out, but now the liberals will only be emboldened. They will step up their attacks.
Wonder if this will be the end of him?
