For over 20 years, I have illustrated the absurd with absurdity, three hours a day, five days a week. In this instance, I chose the wrong words in my analogy of the situation. I did not mean a personal attack on Ms. Fluke.Unfortunately, as we know from every other conservative who has issued any kind of apology, this will not satisfy the perpetually outraged on the left. They'll demand apology after apology (which they probably won't get) and they'll do their best to keep this alive in the press to divert attention from Obama's economy and other failures. This won't be over for awhile.
I think it is absolutely absurd that during these very serious political times, we are discussing personal sexual recreational activities before members of Congress. I personally do not agree that American citizens should pay for these social activities. What happened to personal responsibility and accountability? Where do we draw the line? If this is accepted as the norm, what will follow? Will we be debating if taxpayers should pay for new sneakers for all students that are interested in running to keep fit?In my monologue, I posited that it is not our business whatsoever to know what is going on in anyone's bedroom nor do I think it is a topic that should reach a Presidential level.
My choice of words was not the best, and in the attempt to be humorous, I created a national stir. I sincerely apologize to Ms. Fluke for the insulting word choices.
My contribution to the discussion was posted on Twitter earlier:
Let's be honest, does ANYBODY want @SandraFluke to reproduce? Don't we have enough self-righteous libs in the world?And of course, just because Rush apologized doesn't mean Fluke isn't actually a slut. The jury's still out on that one.
