Even after Rush Limbaugh apologized for the harsh language he used to describe a law student flacking for Obamacare’s mandates, a good number of liberals just can’t let the story go. Just check your own Facebook page. Or click on over to some left-wing blogs — or left-of-center editorial pages.
“While Republican leaders owe no apology for Mr. Limbaugh’s comments,” inveigh the editors of the Washington Post in highest dudgeon, “they do have a responsibility to repudiate them — and him.” Just as soon as the pro-Obama SuperPAC, Priorities USA Action, returns the one-million dollar check Bill Maher sent them — and as soon as Democrats, including the president himself, repudiate this mean-spirited former funny man.

(There are not enough hours in the day to get a fraction of the miscreants on the left and right). And I don’t much like the idea of elevating and rebroadcasting crude remarks. (President Obama insured that everyone in America knew that Sandra Fluke had been called a “slut.”)
