Compare the difference between apologies of Rush Limbaugh and those of Ed Schultz and Cal Thomas: Schultz and Thomas both appeared publicly to make their apologies (Schultz's on air apology to Laura Ingraham and to the public lasted approximately 10 minutes) and made a telephone call to the "victium" to make a personal apology.

How else can you characterize actions? Limbaugh must thing we are stupid. Only his fans will believe his sincerity and it is likely that he will be playing the victim on his next ... Full Story
The He-Man Woman Haters Club By Bob Cesca During a month when the abortion and contraception debate peaked -- again -- you would've thought the Sunday political shows would feature a larger than usual roster of female panelists, strategists and experts.
