For a guy who's supposedly sorry for his unfortunate word choice—for three hours a day, for three days straight—not to mention a man who claims to be "huge on personal responsibility and accountability," Rush Limbaugh can't seem to stop finding new people to blame for his slut crusade against Georgetown Law student Sandra Fluke.

After issuing his non-apology, in which he basically said he was sorry for calling Sandra Fluke a slut, but if she weren't such a slut, he wouldn't have had to call her a slut, he then explained his non-apology by saying Barack Obama's "socialist agenda" made him do it and that he "became like them" and "descended to their level" by attacking Ms. Fluke for the better part of a week.

But that was a perfectly sane and reasonable argument compared with Rush's latest excuse for himself:

By the way, the movie Game Change, the HBO movie that premiered on Saturday night (that's designed, once again, to castigate and destroy Sarah Palin all over again)? The same public relations firm representing Sandra Fluke represents Game Change. The same PR firm that handled Sandra Fluke's episode is handling Game Change, and you know who it is?  Anita Dunn, formerly of the White House! The Mao Tse-tung admirer, by her own admission. Anita Dunn, Obama's former adviser, is the PR firm for the movie Game Change and for Sandra Fluke. It's all part of a plan. It is not accidental. None of this stuff just happened. "Whoa, looky over there what just happened!" It's all orchestrated.
Perhaps Rush should borrow Glenn Beck's chalkboard to explain how Mao Tse-tung + Anita Dunn + Barack Obama + Game Change + Sarah Palin + Sandra Fluke = Rush "huge on personal responsibility and accountability" Limbaugh is the victim here. Because that is the claim to which he devoted his show yesterday. Somehow, Rush's attack on Sandra Fluke was orchestrated by Obama and the Democrats and the Left to make Rush and the Republicans look bad. As if they needed any help with that.
The so-called Republican war on women is page two of the Democrat Party playbook. So they may well go back to it. They may very well convince themselves that the New York Times and Washington Post polls are wrong. They may ignore them. They may take a couple days off and then gin it all back up again. Who knows? But they'll do something. It will be something along the order of, "This fill-in-the-blank Republican is the enemy of women, is the enemy of minorities, is the enemy of the poor; has got to be stopped, has got to be banned, has got to be shutdown." The Democrat Party creates victims so that they can then portray themselves as heroes riding to the rescue.
The truth is, Republicans are doing a fine job all on their own revealing themselves to be the anti-woman party. While it's an amusing fantasy that they've somehow been tricked into attacking women, they own their war. It wasn't cooked up by the Democrats; Barack Obama didn't apply his 11-dimensional chess skills to get Republicans to introduce hundreds of anti-woman bills throughout the country; no one (except the Catholic bishops) forced Senate Republicans to introduce an amendment to protect bishops from having their feelings hurt that women use birth control.

And sorry, Rush, but Sandra Fluke isn't a carefully maneuvered, Mao Tse-tung-inspired plant who was hand-picked by the White House to coax you into calling her a slut and a prostitute and demanding that she post sex videos online for your viewing pleasure. You did that all on your own.

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.
