Limbaugh Sorry for Calling Fluke a Slut

Sigh. Rush Limbaugh issued an apology to Sandra Fluke for calling her a slut. I suppose he had to do it to shut everyone up, but the double standard here is just grotesque. Who was it that Bill Maher called the c-word? It may have been Sarah Palin. It’s hard to keep up with the demeaning, uncivil and disgusting language the left uses to demonize conservative women. Donald Douglas has a couple examples.

Civility. Right.

I don’t recall if WaPo‘s editors wrote a similar editorial when Ed Schultz smeared Laura Ingraham as a “slut.”   Either way, Ingraham says she’s still waiting for the White House to call.

And let’s not even get started on Keith Olbermann.

He was referring to a WaPo editorial saying the GOP cannot ignore it’s Limbaugh problem, as if Rush Limbaugh is the head of the Republican Party. (Or he was wrong in the first place.) Give me a break.

Unemployment is officially above 8%, but if you count those who need to work but gave up in desperation it’s closer to 20% or more. The cost of living is skyrocketing. There are more Americans on welfare than ever before. The housing market continues to deteriorate. We have American troops getting blown away in secure areas in Afghanistan while our president apologizes. The national debt is exploding and all the politicians want to do is spend even more money. And here we are talking about this Democrat activist prop and whether we should pay for her contraception, and denouncing those who rightfully mock her. The left ginned up a controversy, the media fell for it, and again, the issues that really matter are swept under the rug.

As Rick Santorum would say, I want to throw up.
