Stop the presses — Limbaugh 'apologizes'

Posted By on Sat, Mar 3, 2012 at 4:59 PM

Here's your Saturday night line, with a piece of news apology:

SORRY: Rush Limbaugh.
  • SORRY: Rush Limbaugh.
* LIMBAUGH APOLOGIZES: Yes, the Republican message master miscalled this one. He's been forced to apologize for calling a student sincerely interested in women's access to comprehensive health care a "slut." He issued a written statement, the coward's way out, but .... Well, you decide if this deserves the word apology. It's of the if-she's-offended-I'm-sorry type.

PS — Maureen Dowd has some pre-apology thoughts on the GOP "puppet master" and the craven politicians who dance to his tune.

Mitt Romney reacted to Limbaugh for days with craven silence before finally allowing on a rope line on Friday night that “it’s not the language I would have used.” Is there a right way to call a woman a slut?

* AIR SCARE FOR MCDANIEL: Attorney General Dustin McDaniel landed a private plane without incident Friday night in Jonesboro after a warning light indicated a landing gear malfunction.

  • Not giving up on Fred

    We ended up adopting Fred due to his incorrigible stubbornness. Originally bred to track game, basset hounds can be amazingly persistent. It sometimes appears that when their noses are working, their hearing shuts down.
  • Prosecutors have all the power

    But little oversight. Is a violation not a violation if a prosecutor says, 'I didn't mean to'?
  • Private clubs win early closing battle

    Private clubs apparently have won their battle against earlier closing hours, based on a "compromise" revealed at the City Board meeting last night.
  • The Kochs, Tom Cotton and their dislike of helping farmers

    The Koch political lobby is trying mightily to pretend it supports American farmers and that Tom Cotton's vote against the farm bill isn't a measure of farm support. A new report from a Democratic organization blows that dishonest messaging out of the water.
  • A tree grows in Little Rock

    When Darla talks about the tree, she calls it "he" sometimes, blurring the seam between the tree and the memory of her son.
