Rush Limbaugh is a class act

Have you heard about how some of the Duke lacrosse team allegedly beat, strangled, and gang-raped a black exotic dancer while calling her racial epithets? Now I know Rush is an easy target, but talk about heartless:
[Al Sharpton is] trying to figure out how he can get involved in the deal down there at Duke where the lacrosse team, uh, supposedly, you know, raped, some, uh, hos.*
Later, a caller asked him specifically if he called the gang-rape victims "hos," and he said he did. Then he apologized, but it was one of those half-assed apologies where you don't apologize for what you do, but for the effect it had.
I regret that you heard me say it.
The man is classy all the way.

* There is in fact only one victim, but both Limbaugh and his caller use the plural. Must not have been paying attention.

  1. I bet Limbaugh's the first to criticize rappers for calling women "hos," tho'.

    When we finally end the racist War on Drugs, I think we should keep drugs illegal for just one person--him.
