Except my quote was from Santorum. It wasn't Rush claiming to be an entertainer, it was Santorum claiming that Rush was an entertainer.
In other words, Santorum was defending Rush. That's vastly different than Rush attempting to defending himself.
I've heard some tasteless things on The Daily Show, but I don't recall Stewart hiding behind the "I'm just an entertainer" defense.
