When that classless, ignorant oaf Limbaugh would apologize:
“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.”
Of course, he qualified it, but seeing the words “sincerely apologize” from him to one of his smear victims is amazing.
In case you haven’t seen the news, this victim was Sandra Fluke, a law student at Georgetown who attempted to make herself heard in the midst of Darryl Issa’s no-girls-allowed theater-of-the-absurd hearing on contraception. Ms. Fluke immediately became a target for right-wing pundits and radio motormouths.
This, recall, from the guy who was caught by Customs back in 2009 with Viagra purchased under a prescription with another name on it. He was returning from a “vacation in the Domincan Republic.”
Blowhard Bill O’Reilly, who had to settle a sexual harassment lawsuit (sans apologia) brought by a former employee, has picked up the thread, however. In a moment of doubtless unintended Freudian irony, he asks if Ms. Fluke wants him to give up his "hard-earned money" so she can have sex.
Don’t these men have any shame? Oh, wait, stupid question . . . .
