Rush Limbaugh Is A Sorry Sloppy Fat Assed Whore

In the above clip, Al Franken humorously dissects ( among other things) Limbaugh's ability
 to generate the ratings he has. It's more about the marketing technique
 of creating a morbidly pathological fascination. 
Here are two quotes which emanated from the same gaping orifice: 
1: "A lot of broadcasters might have lost their jobs by saying something so stupid, offensive, and misogynistic."
2: "I mean, this is part of what he does. He likes to stoke outrage and draw attention by saying things that are a bit over the line."
Both quotes came from Howard Kurtz, CNN's resident professional jerk off Conservative Apologist and in the context, it doesn't take a genius to figure out that quote #2 referred to Rush Limbaugh after Rush, the pathetic fat ass media whore he truly is, caved in and impotently apologized when he felt fascist progressive inhuman pressure being applied to his wallet after insulting every woman in America for three or four days.
For the record, quote #1 was Kurtz's flaccid outrage directed to Ed Schultz after his apology when he called conservative talk show personality, Laura Ingraham a "right wing slut". For the record, Schultz was forced to take a weeks unpaid leave from his MSNBC radio program for his one time remark. 
There is a media double standard. I've just shown it to you at the beginning of this post. The only time in the whole discussion Howie decried the use of the word "slut" was when talking about Ed Schultz, not Rush Limbaugh. Yes, there's a media double standard. It's the one that lets Rush Limbaugh get away with saying despicable, hateful things while Howie airbrushes it as "entertainment."
Look, let's be clear. Rush came down hard and fast on Sandra Fluke with as much meanness as he possibly could to send a message to us all: Speak out, women, and you're next. Dare to claim your rightful and equal place in this country, and I'll take you down just like I did Sandra. That's why he was so toxic. Rush Limbaugh is a 61 year old multi-multi millionaire who heads — albeit, unofficially — the Republican Party. And he has now headed it into shame, disrepute, misogynistic attacks, and we are left on the sidelines, watching the implosion.
Limbaugh has lost many corporate advertisers, and many companies lost by those advertisers, and possibly for the first time in his life he has been forced to apologize for his actions.
But his apology is not enough, not satisfying, not fulfilling. It is empty, shallow, the excuse-ridden day-late homework assignment of a fifth grader who copied it while looking over his shoulder at someone else’s work. Limbaugh apologized because he finally realized that even he could go to far, and his comments all week had not only weakened the nation, not only weakened the Party, not only weakened his bank account, but had weakened his brand.
Finally, let’s be especially clear: Rush Limbaugh did not apologize out of sincerity. Limbaugh did not apologize after wrestling with his inner demons, or after soul-searching, or after consulting with his better angels. Limbaugh apologized after losing a half-dozen advertisers — and after knowing more were about to jump ship. In short, Limbaugh apologized because he finally realized that even he could go too far, and his comments all week had not only weakened the nation, not only weakened the Party, not only weakened his bank account, but had weakened his brand. And that, ladies and gentlemen, is the only reason Rush Limbaugh offered his three-paragraph apology.
Rush Limbaugh’s apology, full complete text:

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.

Too little, too late? This isn't about "Freedom Of Speech". Listen, if the Clear Channel felt they had to let a fat assed embarrassing drug addled liability go for "economic and image reasons" they'e do it in a New York Minute.
No, Rush, no one fears you anymore. Now, we merely pity and despise you. And that’s the way apologies work. No one is forced to accept them. You have to hope you have enough good will stored in your bank of gratitude to pay for it. And yours, Rush, has been overdrawn for decades.
When history has had its say on you, trust me, Rush, it will not have chosen the wrong words.
