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.
