As if it wasn’t bad enough for Rush Limbaugh to call Sandra Fluke, the Georgetown law student, “a slut” and “a prostitute” last Wednesday, he continued on his rant the following day adding, “if we’re going to pay for your contraceptives and thus pay for you to have sex, we want something for it. We want you to post the videos online so we can all watch.” Disgusting! What are YOU hiding behind closed doors and in your closet Mr. Limbaugh?
Limbaugh dug his own proverbial grave even deeper with his “apology” that did more pointing the finger at the “immoral and dishonest liberals” than accepting responsibility for his hate speech when he said, ‘”I don’t expect, and I know you don’t either, morality or intellectual honesty from the left,” he said. “…This is the mistake I made: in fighting them on this issue last week, I became like them. Against my own instincts, against my own knowledge, against everything I know to be right and wrong, I descended to their level. I feel very badly about that.”
A sincere apology does not point fingers and lay the blame with something or someone else. I applaud the advertisers who are leaving him in droves and I plan to make a conscious effort to support those businesses. As of this writing those businesses are: Sleep Number, The Sleep Train, Quicken Loans, Cleveland Cavliers, Legal Zoom, GoToMy PC, GoToMeeting, Citrix Onlne, ProFlowers, Carbonite, Tax resolution Services, and AOL.
