Ann Althouse gets deep into the weeds on apologies, and finds that some apologies are more equal than others in the eyes of the Democratic Commisariate (emphasis in original):

Now, I believe in general principles, and I want to know what the general principle is about accepting apologies. I’d like to nail down...

Rush started off by joking that his phone line was so busy he couldn’t cancel advertising on his own show for Two If By Tea, the product he produces and markets.

He then addressed his apology, and his motives.

I’ll post more, but here is a partial portion of Rush’s opening statement on...

Jeffrey Lord (via Instapundit) addresses the attempt to drive away Rush Limbaugh’s advertisers, focusing particularly on Carbonite:

In other words, to put it politely, Mr. Friend’s woe-is-me I’m-withdrawing-my-company’s sponsorship-from-Rush Limbaugh-because of-my-lovely-daughters is as close to certifiable BS as one can imagine. Mr. Friend, one can only suspect, placed Carbonite’s ads with Rush Limbaugh because...

And I’m not talking about the attempt to get advertisers to stop advertising on Rush Limbaugh’s show, or Fox News, although that would be bad enough.

I’m talking about the second-tier of the warfare, the attempt to intimidate those removed by one or more degrees of separation from the dispute, and to...

Good for Newt for pushing back against David Gregory.

This segment epitomizes almost everything about how the MSM tries to frame the narrative against conservatives and particularly against religious Christians.

It actually got worse. After Newt, Gregory did the same thing to Eric Cantor, and then demanded to know from Cantor why Republicans...

Liberal groups have seized on a strategy I didn’t think would be effective, but has had some success, to go after advertisers of prominent conservative media personalities.

Media Matters explicitly seeks to bring down Fox News and investigate its executives, and Fox News advertisers have been targeted by groups like Color of...

Here is the statement released earlier tonight:

A Statement from David Friend, CEO of Carbonite as of 6:45pm ET, March 3:

JWF has some background on the Georgetown Law student who is challenging Georgetown’s contraception policy.  She went to the law school knowing the university’s policy, and per JWF, intending to challenge it.

Unfortunately, Rush walked into this one without seeing...

When even Rush Limbaugh buys into the “criticising Bain is criticizing capitalism” meme, we have lost as a party.  There is a huge difference between using government powers to impose value judgments (a la Obama) and making value judgments in evaluating a candidate’s background.

It’s over.

We’ve discovered a way to lose the general...

It sounds so much better when read out loud (video via The Right Scoop)(transcript here):
