A "gay-looking transgender"? Wow.
 
2013-04-19 09:11:46 AM
hell of an apology,  "I'm sorry that I believed the lamestream mainstream mainstreet palace guard stream LSMSM Obamedia media media media media"
 
2013-04-19 09:26:09 AM
Jeez subby, you ruined it right in the link! Should've put 'some douchebag'.
 
2013-04-19 09:42:18 AM
Well, it isn't like I go to Rush for accurate news reporting.  He's more of an anal-yst.
 
2013-04-19 09:51:19 AM
I like his style.  Attention whorish, but classy. 
I'm going to interrupt my own posts with pictures of myself while talking about me and how other people are largely to blame for what I'm apologizing for.

I'm sorry to attention whore.  I'm just doing it while I apologize.  Apologizing is something modest people do.  Oh yeaaahh, I'm modest on a technicality.

Nice that he owned up to it. When you're in the business of mindlessly repeating stuff, this can happen.
 
2013-04-19 10:02:17 AM
He was very, um, STIMULATED bý the report that the suspect was "dark skinned".

And very deflated once the report proved false.

Only reason he owned up to it was because he reported it from other news sources. Has he ever owned up to the 99.99% of of ther shiat he's made up?
 
2013-04-19 10:11:04 AM
I'm surprised he can self-fellate so well, because holy crap that was a filthy blog post.
 
2013-04-19 10:14:58 AM
I didn't see an apology.  Can someone point it out for me?
 
2013-04-19 10:19:01 AM
The design of his website is the gaudiest shiat on the internet.

Lemme guess. The same type of non-apology apology issued to Sandra Fluke?

Yep.

Well, since the bombers turned out to be "mooslim turr'ists" and not some disgruntled teabagger, he's going to be in a good enough mood to allow a wee bit of contrition.

I like how the stylist bloused the loose fabric on his right sleeve to make it look like he has a huge manly bicep. I bet there's a couple loosely crumpled kleenex stuffed in there.

I happened to listen to that monologue yesterday afternoon.

An excerpt:

"Now, I don't know the origin of the story. I don't know the source. That's why I'm not signing up for it, but I just want to tell you it's out there and it's one thing, by the way, the Drive-Bys won't touch.  This is a theory, and that's all they had yesterday were theories, but this is a theory the Drive-Bys are not gonna touch.  The Saudi national is the prime suspect, so goes this theory.  The Saudi national is part of a Boston terror cell and has been known as such for a while and, in fact, was scheduled to be deported next Tuesday, before the massacre at the Boston Marathon happened.
Yesterday, unscheduled, President Obama has a meeting with a Saudi government official, unscheduled, emergency. It turns out it was about Syria I think, but people started to wonder, "Hmm, I wonder if the Saudi government got to Obama."  Because the rest of the story is that the Saudi national is 19 or 20 years old, is the prime suspect and is part of a prominent family in Saudi Arabia and is gonna be sent home with no action taken and the case filed, closed and sealed.  That's what's going on today.  It's no different than anything CNN said yesterday.  It's just as valid as anything that was out there yesterday, which has now been walked back.

Now, I have no idea.  This is really my point.  I was repeating what these people in the media were saying yesterday.  I don't know what happened.  I spend my entire career telling you not to trust those people because they're agenda-focused, and here I was repeating what they were saying.  Now, I had my proper caveats but I still repeated it.  And the bottom line is I don't know what happened, and I'm not gonna sit here and pretend that I do. I'm not gonna take the occasion of this event, try to launch myself to some new height based on something I know or believe."


Oh, for crap's sake.  Sure, this is just as legitimate as what the mainstream media outlets were saying. 0bama allowed a known terrorist - the primary suspect in this bombing case, no less - to leave the country, in collusion with his Saudi masters. Yep, he's just repeating what's out there, even though he knows it's bullshiat, and it's their fault he did it.
 
2013-04-19 11:54:02 AM
Did he blame the libs? Because if you blame the libs while apologizing it's not actually an apology.
 
2013-04-19 12:03:13 PM
I think this is as close as Rushbo gets to being humble and apologetic folks.

What a poorly socialized and developed human being.

I think it's more likely to be a ham or a chicken than a kleenex. He's on the air for a long time each day and he might need a little pick me up.

".  Yesterday we heard dark-skinned.  We heard light-skinned.  We heard a male-looking female.  We had a gay-looking transgender.  I mean, every possibility was thrown out, in terms of the suspect. "

That was a textbook non-pology.
 
2013-04-19 01:15:25 PM
Wow.... At first you think that he is stepping up and being a man, and you actually want to give him credit.

Then you read, and see that all he's doing is blaming the media, without bothering to point out that he himself is a part of that very same "Drive By Media".

What a shiat-heel...
I'm sure the "Drive By Media" gave him the numbers to make statements like these, too...

Gun control, 4% of the American people support the president's idea of gun control.  Ninety-six percent don't.

And...

Four percent of the American people support the whatever number of illegals here being granted citizenship.  Four percent support, 96% don't.

While I don't think everybody is onboard with Gun Control, and I think the gun control people have been inflating their numbers, I don't think that only 4% agree with Obama on this. Same with Immigration. How come he keeps coming up with this exact 4%, anyway?

"I was thinking last night. I don't think it's gonna be the case now, but last night I was thinking ..."

Not sure if he's lying here, or just confused about the meaning of the word "think". He's lied a lot before, so I'm not sure if I want to give him the benefit of the doubt and go with the "stupid/ignorant" tag right out of the gate.

The italicized text in my post was copied and pasted from the article, which is a transcript of what Rush actually said on the air yesterday afternoon.

The non-italicized text (i.e. the paragraph that started with "Oh, for crap's sake") was sarcasm-laden commentary on Rush's statement.

Are you OK?  Your sarcasm detector usually works quite well.

Because he's too lazy of a lazy fat fark to make up different numbers. And his audience is too farking lazy to think about it for too long.

Like I said, I've been reading shiat on right-wing blogs that sound more ridiculous than that - the fright-wingers are derping at historic levels.  Maybe if hadn't just been reading that stuff i would have picked it up...oh, well...I'll check my batteries, just in case

Hey Rush, are you sure you have enough pictures of yourself on your shiatty blog?
 
2013-04-19 03:22:40 PM
0bummer?
 
2013-04-19 03:34:30 PM
Interesting.I wonder if he even understands what an apology is. Most people really don't and view it largely as "only sorry I got caught" and Limbaugh never struck me a sa person who was humble enough to do the personal reflection associated with an actual apology. He might really mean it this time, but who can tell? In either event it won't stop him jumping to conclusions in the future so the apology is fairly pointless.

It's too bad we can't expect an apology out of everyone who jumped to conclusions and got things wrong. If you listened carefully you could hear a million liberals screaming in denial very late last night when they found out it wasn't a 'right winger' that did this, and they were so hoping for that too. Better luck next time kids.

Hey, it's not like I'm going to rush to his defense, but there is a kernel in there that is very true - there is very little in the way of reporting going on.  The difference between reporting and journalism is vast.  Pointing a camera and providing commentary doesn't take hard work - it takes being there.  So, if he apologizes for being part of the problem, as poorly as he did, it's something.  How much practice does he get apologizing for ANYTHING?

When the reporters who actually find facts and follow good leads and come to real conclusions come in, let me know.....otherwise, I'll just stare at the moving pictures.
 
2013-04-19 05:23:50 PM
Call me when he apologizes for existing.
