Rush being Rush

Here we go again. Rush Limbaugh’s recent words of choice are causing a public outcry. Last week, the conservative radio host called Georgetown Law student Sandra Fluke a ‘slut’ and a ‘prostitute’ for arguing that the university should cover contraception for female students. He then proceeded to apologize on ABC’s ‘The View’ after pressure from his sponsors. Many of them, including AOL, have already pulled their support.

My question is, where does this guy get off? I mean its one thing to be fundamentally against the principle of covering contraception, but it is another ballpark to send personal attacks to someone. Limbaugh is not a new face to this sort of hate however, and he refuses to tone it down. When President Barack Obama called Fluke to offer his condolences, he even mocked the president. The sad truth is this menace will never learn. If you’re like me though, you still want to gawk at a top ten list of [racist] stuff this guy has said. Luckily for all of us, NewsOne had the same thought. Check it out

Where does this rank for you on Rush Limbaugh moments? Is their a solution for this guy?

Is this story more about Rush’s freedom of speech or Sandra Fluke’s?
