I'm unhappy he took that tack in the first place, but I'm equally unhappy he apologized. He spent three days on this and he apologizes to appease sponsors. They aren't coming back. Especially now that Carbonite bailed after the apology.

Rush really boned this one up. He blew a chance to bury the left with Fluke's absurd and meaningless testimony and instead he handed them a gift.

No more apologies! Get back to business and deal with the issue in a straightforward manner. Point by point. Now that he's got everyone listening, it's the time to hit them over the head with straight facts.

I heard him talking about the cost on Friday, but compared to the amount of times he spends with the slut talk it was a fraction. So it's pretty easy for the msm to paint this as all about "slut".

I don't condemn Rush, I just wish he'd angled it differently and left out some of the static. I'm fine with him calling her out on the sex aspect, it's just that's the vast majority of what he's talking about. It muddies the more important point, IMO.

I don't think Santorum was condemning him either. I thought it handled it as well as he could have being a guy who so easily gets sucked into social issue debates.

I also don't think Rush should apologize as some right leaners are demanding. I would be very disappointed if he apologized. I do wish he would -- now that he has their attention -- shift the focus more to the lies the Dems are telling.

Well my insurance pays for my contraceptives. They'd be cheaper if my insurance didn't cover them, but since it does, I'm stuck with the price I'm stuck with.

I wish he weren't taking this angle, but I don't think he owes anyone an apology. In fact, I think what's happening in Afghanistan right now pretty much shows you what apologizing to a bunch of jackals gets you.

But beyond that she doesn't deserve an apology. She's inserted herself into the national conversation and she can't now pretend that sex isn't a part of it. She either lied about or exaggerated the amount of money she spends on contraception and expected no one to call her on it? She's getting her attention -- she'll be the next Anita Hill -- but that doesn't mean anyone owes her anything.

Right. Did even one Democrat stick up for Sarah Palin when Bill Maher called her a c*nt? When David Letterman called her daughter a slut?

I wouldn't call Rick Santorum out on this. Rush is being absurd. I wish he would focus on her lies about the cost. He's actually provided quite a bit of cover for the Democrats when Ms. Fluke could very easily be used to bury them.

And, BTW, if she really is paying that much for an exam/prescription plus prescribed contraception, she's an idiot and I really wonder about the standards of Georgetown University. She and her friends have zero common sense if they can't manage to get their widely available contraception without a sugar daddy giving it to them on a silver platter.

Nice to see Joel kick their butts on CNN, but Newsbusters bungled the back story too. One would think they would go to the source material if they were going to write about the Shirley Sherrod tape.

It was an excerpted tape, not edited or "doctored". And the full context was included in the article. I read the article shortly after it was published -- before Sherrod was fired -- and I was surprised at all the hoo hah about it. Because I knew she had changed her mind. How could I have known that if it hadn't been included in the text of the article?! Sheesh!

Whenever someone writes something about Andrew doing anything negative to Sherrod, they are admitting loudly and clearly that they never read the original article and they have zero credibility when discussing it.

The article is still available to be read. It's pretty straight-forward too. If you do choose to read it, you will see just how dishonest the smear against Andrew was in that matter. It was despicable.

Hollywood is heavily taxpayer subsidized. If they want to complain about AoV than I'm sure a multi-page list of benefits they get off the tax-payers backs can be provided.

When Mel Gibsons "Passion" movie made hundreds of millions of dollars they talked about making movies for Christians. Then I guess they said "naaah - let's make movies that insult Christians instead."

Nothing (from Hollywood anyway) ever came of the chatter about the Christian market.
