The spirit carries on …
Great “apology” Rush!
… But the point here is that this was an issue that represents a tiny, tiny slice of what the Democrats really want here. They use Sandra Fluke to create a controversy. Sandra Fluke used them to advance her agenda, which is to force a religious institution to abandon their principles in order to meet hers. Now, all of this is what I should have told you last week, ’cause this is what happened. I use satire. I use absurdity to illustrate the absurd. The story at the Cybercast News Service characterized a portion of her testimony as sounding like (based on her own financial figures) she was engaging in sexual activity so often she couldn’t afford it. I focused on that because it was simple trying to persuade people, change people’s minds….
Here’s the bloviating version so that the hophead can’t claim it’s out of context:
RUSH: Those two words were inappropriate. They were uncalled for. They distracted from the point that I was actually trying to make, and I again sincerely apologize to Ms. Fluke for using those two words to describe her….
The point of an apology is that you actually ARE sorry.
Clearly, this was no apology. It was a tactic to save advertisers and radio outlets.
I don’t think this helped.
It’s becoming increasingly clear that Rush doesn’t understand the First Law of Holes:
- When you realize you’re in a hole … STOP DIGGING!
As it stands, this is turning into the demonic version of Lucille Ball and the chocolate factory.
