    Conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh apologized this weekend for offensive comments he made about Sandra Fluke, the Georgetown law student who testified in front of Congress about contraception coverage. Columnist for The Daily Beast and Democratic political analyst, Kirsten Powers, thinks that there is a double standard when it comes to liberals versus conservatives.

    While she agrees that what Limbaugh said was “extremely egregious” and “deserves the outpouring of anger,” Powers wonders where is the outpour of cries when liberals, such as Bill Maher, make the same types of comments.

    Jillian, the supposed " reasoned" voice of Liberals on this board claims that Rush is a political figure and Mayer is not so can be treated differently.

    We enjoy Rush groveling and begging forgiveness.

    However, it is sad to see Rush emasculated and conduct a two day apology tour

    ummm..... maybe because the GOP'ers are so scared of him that Steele apologized to him for calling him an entertainer because he's the unofficial mouthpiece for the Repub Base? :eusa_whistle: :clap2:

    No, just a general bewilderment on the part of the left that conservatives and republican could be so stupid as to let this get away from them; particularly when ones considers the fact that this non-issue was settled decades ago.

    The left is creating this non issue with the help of the Main stream press. It helps them since they can not win on real issues.

    A Statement from Rush - The Rush Limbaugh Show

    He was pretty much saying I am sorry, but..........

    When you apologize to someone, other than to please your sponsors. You don't add a fuck you at the end.

    Unless of course you are a Muslim apologizing for 9/11 or some other terror attack then you on the left don't mind the "but..." at all do you?

    Let he who is without sin cast the first stone

    Sarah Palin is a political pundit who makes a living off of insulting the other side........Bill Maher does the same

    Sandra Fluke was an innocent citizen testifying before Congress. She never attacked Rush and did nothing to draw three days worth of personal insults

    EVERYONE knows that oxyRush is the unofficial spokesman for the con youth of America. In Karl Rove's words "he's fair game" :)
