Cantor Decries Rush Limbaugh’s Comments As ‘Insulting’

One day after Rush Limbaugh apologized for smearing Georgetown law student Sandra Fluke, House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA) repudiated the radio host’s remarks calling her a “slut.”

“You know David, Rush Limbaugh has apologized,” Cantor said Sunday on NBC’s Meet The Press. “I don’t condone that language in any arena, including the political arena…”

Host David Gregory interrupted to ask, “You think he was dead wrong.”

“It was — yes, it was insulting, and Rush has said as much.”
