The smell of sour grapes in any thread about Rush is overpowering. I don't know what the guy ever did to the people who work in radio, but they really are a bunch of children when the topic of Rush Limbaugh comes up.
You make it sound like the discussion of Rush and the "carping" about rush is ONLY by "the people who work in radio."
Rush has a lot of fans who have NEVER worked in radio. Rush is despised by a lot of people who have NEVER worked in radio.
I arranged my day so I could hear for myself how Rush would go about digging himself out of the hole today. His on air comments and words of apology to and about Ms. Fluke were well handled. He demonstrated what an amateur he is when he did not even give her the courtesy of learning how to properly pronounce her last name. He even got into a sophmoric exercise of making up affected French sounding versions of her name.
But then he did something that may or make not make the news this evening as the journalists digest what he said, and as the MSNBC types digest the fruit of his labor today. In an effort to demonstrate his extreme repentance, he announced that HE had made the error of stooping down to the level of liberals.
In a back-handed way I heard him saying: "All liberals are political sluts and whores and I made the mistake of using their methodology, and for doing that I am truly sorry."
