“Dear Prudence” Schools Rush In Apologizing

Slate’s ‘Dear Prudence’ has a few choice words to offer Rush Limbaugh for his non-apology, saying:

“My choice of words was not the best, and in the attempt to be humorous, I created a national stir. [This sounds as if you wish you had searched for a better way to call someone a slut. Also, don’t refer to the fact that you’re now motivated by worry about your career.] I sincerely apologize to Ms. Fluke for the insulting word choices. [This is where you should have begun!]

Actually, to begin, Limbaugh needed to first call Sandra Fluke, and if she wouldn’t take his call, he should have had a letter of apology delivered to her. Then when he issued his public statement it should have been something like: “I sincerely apologize to Ms. Fluke. My remarks about her were false, cruel, and repulsive. There’s no excuse and I offer none. I seriously crossed the line and I am sorry.”

Full, excellent column here.

    And all the gutless GOP candidates tried to wiggle, rather, sleeeeeze out of this one. Ricky Rooster forgot to vomit or perhaps he feared he’d choke on his self-rightousness. The Georgia Pimp, His Newtness, fared no better. These GOP Xtian fellas never cease to amaze.
