Rush May Be The Democrats Greatest Weapon


Some Georgetown student testified before a Democratic panel regarding the need for insurance to cover the cost of contraception.  She said that obtaining it through her school was too costly.

So what does Rush Limbaugh, the leader of all things conservative, say?

"What does it say about the college co-ed [Sandra] Fluke who goes before a congressional committee and essentially says that she must be paid to have sex -- what does that make her? It makes her a slut, right? It makes her a prostitute. She wants to be paid to have sex. She's having so much sex she can't afford the contraception. She wants you and me and the taxpayers to pay her to have sex."


Democrats, Republicans, and dang near everyone else criticized him.  And President Obama (showing why he will win in the Fall) called Sandra Fluke this morning to offer words of support.

Limbaugh is at it again today, but there's no way he can win this.  It's a joy to watch a man filled with hate and lies finally squirm a little.

Edit: On Saturday, with advertisers bailing left and right, Rush apologized. Not because he's sorry but because he fears a loss of income. Pathetic.

Well, when a woman comes out and says she has to spend $250 per month on contraception, and feels like someone else should pay for it because it's hard for her to cover those costs...I'm not surprised someone would get the impression that she's going on a lot of dates.

Anonymous said...

She claimed to spend over $3000, in three years of law school, on contraceptives. At $1 each for condomes, that is sex 2-3 times a day, 365 days a year for 3 years. Sounds like a slut to me.

Anonymous said...

How dare Rush draw any conclusions about a woman who testified that she spends $3,000 a year on contraception. That's 15 condoms per day, each day, for a year. Working girls probably spend less than that. (and yes, there are other methods...but still...)

I agree rush is an idiot but there is no way taxpayers should have to pay for anyone's birth control. Just crazy.
We( the US govt. ) can't pay their bills as it is.

Somebody just shoot me.

I am tired of paying taxes for everyone not working to have more than me.

All of you complaining about her birth control don't have any problem paying for her professors' Viagra?!?

bg, you're just like the president. You use the diversion of attacking the off-the-wall Limbaugh for his dumb comments instead of looking at the real issue. Pay for your own damn birth control or don't have sex! You liberal idiots will be the end of this country. bg, you're a joke! God help us if Obama gets another term!

If you feel she deserves the free pills, please send her your address, and you handle it for her, okay? It's absurd, but then it would make a good story for you.

Why should taxpayers have to pay for some filthy whores birth control. Go Rush.

Anonymous said...

Why isn't anyone pointing out that she's paying her way through law school but can't afford the $9.00 a month for birth control at CVS? She's an activist who openly admists she chose the school to challenge it's health care policies. And you, BG, and the rest of the DIMtools are being played like a fiddle. Limbaugh's not running for president. Hussein is and I'm sick and tired of him and his cronies shoving agendas down my throat that pay for other peoples' lack of responsibility. I HATE the SOB. Can't wait 'til he's gone.

Anonymous said...

I think this young woman is ridiculous wanting anybody to pay for her contraceptives - SHE should come up with the money - but Limbaugh is using this just like he uses anything and everything to bash Democrats.

When that jerk called Chelsea Clinton (a then 12 year old girl) a "lapdog", I lost all respect for him.

He is grasping at straws and doing more to help President Obama be re-elected than any other person on the planet.

He is a disgusting person and thrives on spreading hate and confusion.

The man is satanic!

Anonymous said...

You people are really cranky. She didn't ask you to pay for it; she asked for it to be included in health insurance, which is outrageously expensive and should more than cover what any person, on a regular basis (short of a life threatening accident) needs on a yearly basis, meaning the insurance companies are making huge profits and not covering all the needed medical attention. And I'm betting if you got any, you'd be in a better mood.

Obama called her to find out how much she is charging and that he would like to be her pimp after he loses the election in NOV.

Poor babies. Did Rush upset you? LOL He rocks. He's certainly not for the weak minded. We all know you lefties are.

Ms. Sandra Fluke is such a pathetic loser for causing the government to pay for birth control. She's so dumb she doesn't even know that you can get your fix of BC at Wal-Mart for $5 a month or $75 for a year.

I am so glad my parents taught me physical responsibility so I can stand proud and take care of myself.

Signed,

Make birth control pills over the counter, tell your government to stop enacting so much pro-big-insurance company legislation, reign in the FDA, and pass a modicum amount tort reform legislation and I'll guarantee you this woman won't be asking for others to pay for her birth control pills. Sadly though, everyone, and I mean every damn of us, would agree that the above actions are reasonable and make good sense, but given the current state of our out of control government, this will never happen.

As far as Rush Limbaugh, that MF doesn't even have a gd college degree, why anyone listen to what that fatass has to say about national affairs is mystifiing.

218 - Don't think you're original in wishing (your actual sentiment, right?) someone would kill Rush Limbaugh. Packages going to his residence are thoroughly checked, and his security team reported the suspicious package he recently received. He knows that he's on Obama's (and the Democrats') "enemies list." (Remember when Nixon was reviled when his such list was revealed?) He may say outrageous (but still pretty accurate) things, but stupid Limbaugh is not. If someone were to kill Rush, Obama's Justice Department probably would make sure charges were dropped.

I just heard clips on the radio of Bill Mahr's reference to Sarah Palin using the C-word. He also just donated $1 million to Obama's Super PAC. Where was the Left's outrage then?

"Filled with hate and lies," indeed. As with Ann Coulter, Liberals hate it when their own tactics are used against them.

I started buying my birth control pills from Planned Parenthood after my husband & I had 3 children, did that make me a slut?

Anonymous said...

The point of her testimony was that she attends a Catholic college and that school does not issue birth control to students because it goes against church policy! She wants the govt to force the school to give it to her! First, if you want free birth control find a liberal minded school that will do that! 2nd Study more have less sex and graduate early and get way from the school!! So many people just don't get Rush! He chooses his words carefully to get maximum impact! Ditto!!

Anonymous said...

Katy,

I guess you just didn't get Rush's point. The woman is paying a substantial amount for birth control. That means she's really doing it a lot. Others on this thread have broken it down into daily numbers for you. In fact, she apparently does it so much that she merits the moniker attached to her. While it may be rude to point out the obvious, the truth sometimes hurts. Don't blame Rush for pointing it out. Instead, question what the woman is doing. Pretty risky behavior on her part, if you ask me. As a matter of fact, if she is doing it as much as the numbers indicate, I'd say she definitely has a behavior problem.

Anonymous said...

Rush is absolutely right. He was the only one brave enough to say what a lot of americans think. By the way, you can get generic BC pills for around $10 per pack. You for get to mention the fact that this female is a student who lives in the dorms with a meal plan at georgetown university where the estimated cost is $35-50,000 per year to attend. Maybe she could cut back to 2 meals a day!

Limbaugh has lost 5 advertisers so far.

No one seemed to complain 20 years ago when El Rushbo repeatedly said that Magic Johnson was dead......wrong when Magic announced he had AIDS.

Limbaugh kept saying over and over that Johnson was dead...(very long pause)... wrong. Real funny and the last time I listened to El Drug-bo on a regular basis.

First let me say if you have an opinion about something that is fine, but please read or listen to the woman before you bash her an exclaim she is a slut.
Let me help you:
http://abcnews.go.com/images/Politics/statement-Congress-letterhead-2nd%20hearing.pdf

1. she said can cost $3000 during all of law school. That would be $1000 a year. (let me help with the math that is 83 dollars a month for BC which is typical.

2. She is giving a speech on many persons at her school and the policy of women health issue.

3. She never discusses her sex life but presents situations where the BC is used for many purposes.

4. Rush Limbaugh is a big fat idiot whose qualifications include being an uneducated, drug head.

It did my heart good to see Rush on the evening news today crying and begging everyone to belive he was sincere in his apology. For years Walter Winchell had a column and a radio show. Everyone in show business feared him because he could ruin a career with one bad review. Jack Parr told him to go to hell and it took away his power and destroyed him. Rush has the same hold over the elected repubs.
he is not as feared today as he was yesterday. This powerful voice is going to be brought down by a college coed! About time!!
