Rush Limbaugh Staff Deletes Transcripts of Now Infamous "Slut," "Sex Tape" Comments

Nice try, staff of the Rush Limbaugh Show-- but did you really think that deleting some online transcripts would make us forget about Limbaugh's latest vile remarks?

Via the Atlantic Wire: appears to have removed parts of his radio transcripts from February 29 and March 1 in which he called Sandra Fluke a "slut" and demanded a sex tape as a thank you to taxpayers for subsidizing her birth control. The links to "Butts Sisters Are Safe From Newt and Rick" and "Left Freaks Out Over My Fluke Remarks" now show blank stretches of white space. On March 3, Limbaugh posted an apology on his website. On March 5, he apologized at length on his show. In between, he was not apologetic at all. It's the first round of insults and that bit of doubling down that appear to have been scrubbed.

Atlantic Wire's Elspeth Reeve notes that the transcript pages worked up until at least a few days ago, so it does appear that the pages were scrubbed recently. Is Limbaugh hoping that this incident won't go on his permanent record?
