Conservative radio talk-show host Rush Limbaugh’s apology Saturday to the Georgetown University student he slurred on his radio show last week was insincere, says Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul.

“I don’t think he’s very apologetic,” the Texas congressman said Sunday on “Face the Nation” on CBS. “I think he’s doing it because people were taking their advertisements off his program.”

The OB/GYN doctor said the issue of contraception — the topic that law student Sandra Fluke discussed during a congressional hearing that led to the Limbaugh flap — remains an important political talking point.

“I, as an OB doctor, certainly endorse the whole idea of birth control,” Paul said. “But this is something different. This is philosophically and politically important. Does the government have a mandate to tell insurance companies what to give? So, they’re saying that the insurance companies should give everybody free birth-control pills. That strikes me as rather odd.”
