On his radio show Tuesday conservative talker Rush Limbaugh went after Martin Bashir and his employers at MSNBC for comments Bashir made last week about former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin (R)
"I don't know how he's still there," Limbaugh said. "The fact that people at MSNBC didn't find that reprehensible in any way and let that stand... Nobody at that network apparently had a problem with it because they let it go on [without retraction over the weekend] and then for that to just be mitigated with an apology. These people are just... These are some of the lowest -- particularly at that network -- some of the most despicable human beings."
Bashir apologized Monday for his commentary on Palin, wherein he suggested someone should defecate in her mouth for a speech she gave comparing the federal debt to slavery.
