"My choice of words was not the best, and in the attempt to be humorous, I created a national stir," Limbaugh said in the statement. "I sincerely apologize to Ms. Fluke for the insulting word choices."
That should have read: my choice of words caused my advertisers and sponsors to get a lot of heat from the buying public, and they threatened to drop my show forever if I did not apologize.
And yes, it was a written statement. Rush did not actually want us to see him apologizing. So,true to form, he weaseled out with a written statement on his website on a Saturday.
"I think it is absolutely absurd that during these very serious political times, we are discussing personal sexual recreational activities before members of Congress," Limbaugh said. "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?"
Well rush, you are still walking free after breaking the laws of this country, so maybe you can tell us what happened to "personal responsibility and accountability".
Rush, now that I think about it, your apology is not accepted.
Finally, here is how you know that the economy is picking up; wingnuts are starting to talk about Obama's fake birth certificate again.

Most Republican critics of Obama have given up pursuing such widely discredited "birther" allegations. But the investigation by Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio, carried out by what he described as five-member volunteer "posse," was prompted by a request last August from a group of conservative Tea Party activists in the Phoenix area...
"A 6-month-long investigation conducted by my cold case posse has led me to believe there is probably cause to believe that President Barack Obama's long-form birth certificate ... is a computer-generated fraud," Arpaio told a news conference." [Source]
I swear I don't know why A-merry-cans are so fearful of Islamic terrorist and Iran getting a nuke. At the end of the day do you know what will destroy this country? Stupid people!
