Did Rush Limbaugh do the Right Thing by Apologizing to Sandra Fluke? [POLL]
Over the weekend, Rush Limbaugh apologized to Sandra Fluke for comments he made that some saw as insensitive. According to KFYO News, Limbaugh in a statement said:
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.
Rush went on to explain his thoughts on the matter and then wrapped up his statement this way:
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.
