In a statement released today on his eponymous website, conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh apologized for his choice of words in a monologue about Georgetown Law student and political activist Sandra Fluke, who "testified" at a faux hearing conducted by congressional Democrats regarding the ObamaCare contraception mandate. Limbaugh also reiterated his concern over the contraceptive mandate and the larger erosion of  personal responsibility and accountability through federal mandates that social costs for personal expenses onto taxpayers or employers.

The Rush Limbaugh-Sandra Fluke birth control controversy took a disgraceful turn Friday when CNN's Piers Morgan and magician Penn Jillette discussed watching the conservative talker have sex.

The host of Piers Morgan Tonight also said, "I would love to know who Rush Limbaugh has had sex with over the years, how many times he has sex (video follows with transcript and commentary):

Fox News Watch did an absolutely touching tribute to conservative publisher Andrew Breitbart Saturday.

After a video of his accomplishments was aired, the screen marvelously cut back to host Jon Scott and his panelists all sitting in silence:

As NewsBusters has been reporting, the liberal media have been less than gracious following the surpising death of conservative publisher Andrew Breitbart.

On Fox News's Hannity Friday, conservative author Ann Coulter said it best. "Even in death he shows liberals in their true colors" (video follows with transcript and absolutely no need for additional commentary):

Bill Maher unsurprisingly took some vicious cheap shots at Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum on HBO's Real Time Friday.

In his final New Rule segment, Maher said, "If Rick Santorum is your youth minister, you’d ask your parents to switch you to the one who just molests" (video follows with transcript and commentary):

In an interview on NBC's Rock Center on Wednesday, Russian opposition leader Alexi Navalny demonstrated how pervasive media distortion of Sarah Palin and American conservatism has become: "Conservative groups, some of which support me, are far more liberal than their counterparts in the USA. Rallies in support of Sarah Palin have much more nationalistic slogans than in Russia."

On HBO's Real Time Friday, New York magazine's John Heilemann trotted out the same old tired and completely false cliches about the GOP that Americans are going to hear ad nauseum for the next eight months.

"The Republican Party is becoming just truly is becoming a whiter, more blue collar, more populist, less well-educated party" (video follows with transcript and commentary):

Appearing as a subsitute panel member on the Friday, March 2, Inside Washington on PBS, Politico columnist Roger Simon recited the liberal line of attack on Republicans as he theorized that female voters were being turned off from the GOP.

After quoting the Democratic charge of there being a GOP "war on women," moments later he wondered why Republicans were trying to get government 'into our wombs."

On his radio program Friday, conservative talk show host Rush Limbaugh called for President Obama to return the $1 million that Bill Maher gave to his Super PAC due to the vulgar things the comedian has called Sarah Palin.

Maher haplessly countered this on HBO's Real Time later in the evening saying, "Rush, I don't have sponsors - I'm on HBO" (video follows with transcribed highlights and commentary, vulgarity warning):

HBO has made Bill Maher perhaps America’s nastiest talk show host. He’s also America’s most prominent, militant atheist. Now he’s made himself the most prominent million-dollar donor to Barack Obama’s super PAC, Priorities USA. He broke out a big check on stage in San Jose to advertise his magnanimous support. 

A few days ago, NBC’s resident feminist Andrea Mitchell practically needed smelling salts when Santorum super-PAC backer Foster Friess repeated a very old (and equally innocent) joke about Bayer aspirin being used as birth control. This somehow became the Scandal of the Day for Rick Santorum. So why don’t Bill Maher’s “jokes” now blow back on Barack Obama?

Several Kossacks weighed in viciously this past week on Andrew Breitbart's death, life, and, in more than one case, his afterlife. The DKos gang gave Rick Santorum the standard knocking-around as well.   

As usual, each headline is preceded by the blogger's name or pseudonym.

Private Joker! What is your major malfunction?

That is what I felt like yelling at Matthew Modine aka Private Joker after watching a bizarre video he produced in support of the Occupy Wall Street movement. Rather than shed any light on the subject of OWS, all Modine seemed to accomplish was to make the viewer as confused as Lou Costello trying to make sense of what Bud Abbott was attempting to explain about Who's on first, What's on second, and I Don't Know on third. Watch Private Joker's OWS propaganda video below the fold and see if you can make any sense of four people named Everybody, Somebody, Anybody, and Nobody.

Well, I guess when you think you're going to sell 45,000 cars and you're on track to achieve about 25% of that, something's gotta give.

Something gave today, as Government/General Motors announced a temporary suspension of production of the company's centerpiece of environmental correctness, the Chevy Volt, and the layoff of 1,300 employees. Oh, and as readers will see in the excerpt, it's the (cough, cough) media's fault:

Conservative talk radio host Mark Levin took to the airwaves Friday to defend Rush Limbaugh from all the media attacks he's receiving over his comments regarding Georgetown University law student Sandra Fluke.

"You’re not going to succeed in driving Rush Limbaugh from the airwaves...In fact, I think I speak for tens of millions of Americans when I say you can go to hell" (video available here, partial transcript follows):

MSNBC's Martin Bashir isn't pleased with Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio claiming President Obama's birth certificate is a forgery.

Although that's to be expected, it was odd to see Bashir Friday on the show bearing his name end a segment about his disdain for Arpaio by saying, "The only thing that has been proven beyond any doubt is the rank stupidity of Herman Cain, Rich Perry, Michele Bachmann, Mitt Romney, and Rick Santorum all of whom have sought this discredited and ridiculous man's endorsement" (video follows with commentary):
