The rubbish tip, disguised as the mouth of Rush Limbaugh, subsided further this week to become an even deeper and uglier cake hole. A bitter and twisted hole, so deep, he may never experience life as enjoyed through the eyes of decent people again.

Still, with his well known reputation for bitterness, it is doubtful that he ever did. If Russ Limbaugh isn't the most vilified male in America today; and many who have heard him rant will attest to that, then poll records if kept, must be wrong.  

Real men don't apologize by getting some paid lackey to scribble a meaningless single sentence, have it limply masquerade as an apology, and then banish it to Limbaugh's website like a piece of flotsam.

Hey! Not so fast Mr disgrace to the human race. Unless you want to face a defamation charge and and a damages claim likely to resemble your worst nightmare. Right now, you need to consider some sound advice.

You don't deserve to hear it. You will probably ignore it. Whatever you do, I will be happy. Because you will likely end up a hell of a lot poorer either way.

Listen up Rush, I can only spend so much ink on this matter, so you better think hard and act fast.

Option 1. Do the right thing and be open and transparent:

Telephone Ms Sandra Fluke and request a suitable time to visit her at her home and seek her approval to have mainstream media there to record your personal apology. Most importantly, take your check book with you. If you leave your check book at home you might as well stay at home. And wait for a subpoena.

Remember a copy of your apology should be given to all media and you must be prepared to answer questions from the media following the filming and recording of your apology to Ms Fluke.

Finally give Ms Fluke two checks, each equal to the value of two million five hundred thousand dollars. One for a charity chosen by Ms Fluke. The other payable to her personal account, in lieu of a court action for defamation and any related matters against you.

That's not so hard is it? Mr $35 million a year man.

Option 2. Likely to be really hard. Sandra Fluke holds all the cards.

The alternative is to hire a very expensive legal hawk to defend a nightmarish court case. A case bound to be plagued by long drawn out negative publicity. One likely to end with the loss of your program, court costs and a massive personal damages judgement.

I accept that only a mug would opt for Option 2. But then only a mug would carry on like you in the first place. And when the storm erupted, think you could pass it off as an attempt at humor? Pardon me. Judges aren't that stupid and neither are Jurors.

Rush, please don't think that simply pasting a few weasel words on a website will put an end to this serious matter. Millions of Americans are outraged and rightfully disgusted by your words and actions. It is clear that your program sponsors and the GOP want this matter to go away and fast. So be sure to choose the right option, or it could be you, who is out and going away.

Permanently, that is!

NB: A Special Petition:

As a candidate for the US Senate Elizabeth Warren of MA has long been an advocate for women's rights. If you wish like to to see her deliver the Keynote speech at the DNC Convention in Charlotte NC in September. Please sign the petition below.

I am sure you will agree that Politics in America needs more fine intelligent women like Elizabeth to stand up to the Rush Limbaugh's of life and ensure the health and well being of all Americans.

President of the United States: Select Elizabeth Warren as Keynote Speaker @ DNC Convention 2012

May I invite you to spread the word about the petition through a link to this article.

Thank You.

John.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

    There is a group of people waiting in line around here block. But they are attorneys who are standing in line waiting for a chance to speak to her and offer their services pro bono.

    I really hope she gets a team of about 200 of them that do nothing for the next 5 years but cost Limbaugh money making him defend himself. IANAL, but even if she doesn't have a case, 200 attorneys could still cost Limbaugh a lot of money!

    Never attribute to malice that which can be adequately explained by stupidity.

    The source I found on the internet says he makes $200+ million a year. He should pay a shitload more.

      Do you wonder if Limpdicks younger, good looking wife married him because she woved him, or because he had millions and was an obese POS who won't live much longer? What does that make her?

        He isn't slim but he lost over 100 lbs before his marriage and is no longer obese. If you see a recent picture it really shows that he has lost a lot of weight. Those of us on DKOS frequently see the five year old picture that Media Matters continues to use when he was really fat. I don't know why Media Matters uses such an old picture, I guess they like the fat rich guy image it projects.

      Recommended by:

      From his radio show, I don't know where the other $150 million would come from because he doesn't do endorsements except for the advertisers on his show. I am sure he has substantial investment income because he has earned a lot of money but he would need a much larger capital base to earn an additional $150 million a year. Did the source speculate on the sources of the $200 million?

      I agree entirely. This case, if it comes up, will have the legal beagles salivating. Mr Limbaugh's behavior has given the Democrats a noble rolled in gold issue to drive all the way to November and beyond.

      The GOP and its media spruikers Limbaugh, Beck, O'Reilly et al, have branded themselves (a neat trick that) as anti - women and women's rights. That will not be forgotten any time soon.

      As far as Sandra Fluke goes, its all good looking now. Options galore for an unknown yesterday and a national heroine today. C'est la Vie!

    law student on a national stage.  But then, Rush considers himself untouchable.  With good reason....he IS the Leader of the Republican party.

    He has a face & body made for radio.  Now he can show off that sturdy, over fed frame of his in court when he's sued for slander, libel & defamation of character.

    This is going to make a great case study & research project for all those law students & professors at Georgetown.
