Slut!!!

And conservatives say Obama is the divisive one.

Sandra Fluke, a women’s health activist and Georgetown college student, who says her friend lost an ovary due to lack of contraceptive care, was turned away from a House oversight hearing on the White House’s contraception rule, where she had hoped to testify. Instead, she told her story in a mock congressional hearing later in the month. In her testimony, Fluke largely discussed the high cost of contraception and the important medical benefits it can offer women. She did not make any comments suggesting she is advocating for contraceptive care coverage because she is “having so much sex.”

So Wednesday Rush Limbaugh takes to the air and calls this student a “slut” and a “prostitute.”  The thing is, Fluke is not a politician or a person like me, a public commentator.  She attempted to testify before Congress, which is a pretty patriotic thing to do.  So instead of just disagreeing with her and mocking her viewpoint, she gets called a slut.  What is up with Republicans month-long war against women?  It’s insane.

Rush has not apologized and has instead said he’s being vilified by Democrats and liberals.  Yes, Rush you are being vilified.  Wanna know why?  Because you attacked an innocent by calling her a slut.  Here’s a difference between you being vilified, Rush, and you’re vilification of Sandra Fluke;  Nobody has to slant, misinterpret or lie about what you said.

Another thing Rush said was “She’s having so much sex she can’t afford the contraception.”  It doesn’t matter how much sex you have, Rush.  A woman will still take the same amount of birth control.  I’ll give you a pass on that one because you probably don’t have that much experience having sex as I can’t think of anybody who’d wanna sleep with you.

Also, Rush wants the girl to make home-made sex tapes so he can watch them.  I am NOT making that up.

Full disclaimer:  My company also owns radio stations, one of which airs Rush’s show.
