A Statement from Rush

March 03, 2012

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.

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.

    The Cancer on Air

    I commit to memory much of my boyhood
    I was east of a microwave west
    and far afield them foreigners with them cell phones.
    Don’t give me your brain tumor,
    a negro MUST stay focus on being black;
    this malady is unending,
    but this is what burns my blood, even now,
    women, like Sandra Fluke, is torn up with malignancy.
    I am no medical doctor,
    a scientist I refused to be
    but I’m convinced etiology will speak loud
    of Limbaugh’s voice snaking on the airwaves.
    What eyes have seen his mother,
    “isn’t he a son of a bitch?”
    Maybe his father was the one.
    How did white trash get on 106.1?
    What woman was in travail?
    Wretched is man when such befalleth him.
    Give all the contraceptives desired
    if men will be born with shit for a brain.
    Sad it is, but natural, few MEN give ears to birth control.
    On wintry nights, what woman – what feminine class
    spread legs to give warmth and pleasure to such?
    Show me a woman that moves to the rhythm of his heavy hips
    and language of filthy lips. I will give
    a Grammy for the songs she never sing.
    Why should my sisters, mothers, daughters keep silent?
    Let’s walk for a cure.
