"Limbaugh is a professional speaker; he’s made millions of dollars by choosing words and saying them aloud. But now he wants us to believe that he chose these words improperly. For days. A momentary lapse of judgment? Sure. That’s possible. But to use the same words (that were chosen specifically to insult and degrade) over and over and over again … that’s not called choosing the wrong words. It’s pretty clear that he chose his words and he stuck to them for as long as he could, right up until it started to cost him money."  - Ari Kohen’s not exactly a fan of the Rush apology.
