The Notorious D.I.C.K.

Well, where to start? After Rush Limbaugh's non-apology apology for calling Sandra† Fluke a "slut" and a "prostitute," he tried to make excuses for himself for why he used those words, and tried to compare his profession to that of a rapper.

“Talk about a double standard,” Limbaugh said on air Monday, according to Dylan Stableford. “Rappers can say anything they want about women [and] it’s called art. And they win awards.”
Whether you like rap music or not, it's considered an art form because it's something that is created. When has Rush created anything other than a shitstorm of hate? Sorry, Notorious D.I.C.K., you're not a rapper.

And good for Sandra Fluke to reject Limbaugh's non-apology. He said he was sorry for using those words, but I don't remember him saying he was sorry for wanting to see sex tapes of Fluke in return for something he's not paying for, which also seems to be overlooked by those covering this story. In fact, calling her a slut and a prostitute was tame in comparison to the other things he said.

*One more thing: Did anyone notice that last all week, Limbaugh was pronouncing Fluke's name "Fluck" as in rhymes with "Fuck"? Only today has he been pronouncing her name correctly.

(† A previous version of this post mistakenly named Ms. Fluke as Sarah, and has been corrected.)

Notorious D.I.C.K! I love it!Let me further point out when rappers use vile language against women,they get punished by women who don't buy their music.Its not my favorite "art form"but I don't believe their lyrics go after private citizens.
Rush sounds like a little immature kid who gets caught with his hands in the cookie jar and tries to justify it by trying to rat out others.Hes always talking about personal responsibility but doesn't practice what he preaches.
