    Default Rush gonna Rush

    Oh Rush, you little scamp, you.

    Rush Limbaugh At It Again

    Syndicated talk radio host Rush Limbaugh got so upset over the able articulation of an opposing view by Sandra Fluke, a Georgetown University Law School student who testified before members of Congress in order to highlight concerns about limits on access to contraception, that he attacked her as a "slut" and a "prostitute."
    Best twitter response by far:

    Rush Limbaugh is what's created when the formula that made Swamp Thing is instead poured over YouTube comments and a glazed ham.
    A little nonsense, now and then, is relished by the wisest men.

    He’s an entertainers & he delivers what the read meat he thinks his audience wants to hear … similar to Bill Maher, Hannity, O’Donnel, Ed, etc …

    Stopped listening to rush (excluding when I’m in the car going from point A to B) when he exposed himself as a fraud when the day after the GOP got destroyed in 2006. He started his show by declaring that he felt liberated because he no longer had to carry the water for the big government R's. He's like 95% of the GOP reps … no principle, just root for the home team.

    Rush said he was sorry, of course after some sponsors bailed, but still. Sometimes the GOP forget that woman have the right to vote.

    If you have money to go to Georgetown, you have money to buy contraceptives.

    more about the fluke here.


    Sandra Fluke | Rush Limbaugh | Contraception | The Daily Caller

    She is just another pissed off radical feminist mad because the "gubmit" wont give her free access to contraceptives because
    she and many other people with a low IQ feel now it's "their right" to get it for free. All she needs to do is look up her patron
    saint "Margaret Sanger" and go to the nearest abortion clinic and get it for free for real cheap.

    as one commenter put it

    "Her "testimony" was not in front of Congress. It was part of an obviously choreographed show put on by Nancy Pelosi.
    The only "professionals" involved were the professional partisans in the Democrat leadership.
    The whole response to Rush's remarks is just another example of women being stampeded into hysteria by bumper sticker slogans."

    wow, do you have access to her financial records? because i know quite a few people who went to very expensive schools and were very very poor. you see, when you have brains you can get these things called scholarships which help you pay for college. so you can go, even if you don't have any money!

    1.) IT'S NOT FREE - she would still be paying insurance premiums (and related -- since she is paying her insurance premiums, taxpayers are not footing the bill)

    2.) SANDRA FLUKE WAS NOT TALKING ABOUT HERSELF -- she was talking about a friend who need BCP for medical reasons

    Good thing Rush didn't say something really offensive, like using the term "tea-bagger" to make fun of a whole section of citizens. I'm sure the left would have a conniption if he did something like that.

    Fkd, obesity accounts for at least $60,000,000,000 annually to healthcare providers. I doubt birth control pills, very often used for things other than contraception, costs even 5% of that. Food for thought, Cheesesteak King.

    The Tea Party came up with "Tea Bagger" and then backtracked when they found out what it really means.

    Then it must be OK to use the term in a derogatory fashion.

    Frankly, the left lost their credibility about being concerned about feminist issues and ability to posture on the matter during the Clinton administration. Clinton had a credible rape charge against him for crying out loud.

    The sponsors continue to vote with their feet as #7 pull its ads.

    7th advertiser pulls out of Limbaugh's show - Business - US business - Media biz - msnbc.com
    But all in all, it's been a fabulous year for Laura and me.

    There is always another rush to replace the current rush.

    He apologized for using the wrong words, but he still means to say: any woman having sex for reasons other than having kids is an immoral person.

    Rush gives voice to people who think these things because their "religion" tells them to think that. When they hear these words spoken and the reaction to them (including contemplating their own experience) they slowly begin to think for themselves and sometimes cease being the "silent majority"

    Overall, America is slowly developing into being more "liberal", and the it's partly due to self-righteous men like Rush who give voice to ridiculous thoughts and open the door for reasonable people to openly disparage him.

    I could care less if he's fired or not.

    Be fair. His point was that she demands that someone else besides her boyfriend to buy her birth control so she can go have sex. That's not being a slut. And that's not a prostitute. But doesn't that make anyone feel a little weird?

    One of the things that really upsets me about this whole incident is that people try to defend Rush by bringing up the argument that the Catholic Church shouldn't have to provide birth control, which you can make a legitimate constitution based argument around. Because the real issue is that he called out some young woman who chose to talk about her beliefs in front of Congress and his response was to label this girl a slut. There are few things you can say more hurtful to a woman than call her a slut. It further erodes the level of discourse in this country, it is wrong to use such language. So if you truly care about the argument that Catholics shouldn't have to provide contraception than you need to strongly condemn Rush's comments, as some have, and then discuss the issue in a separate place and time. Also bringing up the, well Democrats say mean things too, doesn't help things either. There should be a blanket condemnation of his statement and that is that. The R's really need to understand this, women use contraception, women don't like being called sluts, and women vote.
