Palin’s a “Cunt,” But Fluke Ain’t a “Slut?”

The hypocrisy on the left about Rush Limbaugh’s inept attempt at humor in discussing Sandra Fluke’s condom fetish is not unexpected, but is worth noting.

Remember when Sarah Palin was called a “Cunt” by a parade of lefties?

The list includes Bill Mahrer and Howard Stern as well.

Where was the outrage and boycotts over Palin? I don’t recall any of the folks upset at Limbaugh’s comments about Fluke expressing similar disgust and outrage over the attacks on Palin. Do you? (If so, please provide the links, I want to give credit where credit is due).

But there is anger a plenty at Rush. He got the economic gun pointed at his head today and had to retreat. Finally had to eat some crow. I am actually with Rush Limbaugh in terms of being outraged by Sandra Fluke. She thinks that I must subsidize her sexual activity? Good God!! Where is the concept of personal responsibility anymore?

But Limbaugh bombed in calling her a “slut.” I realize he fancies himself a satirist and smart guy, but he is quite clumsy and juvenile when it comes to trying to ridicule the likes of Sandra Fluke. I would have started out by noting that aspirin (which Ms. Fluke should hold between her knees) is not that expensive. But not Rush. Calling her a slut and prostitute was his shot at being a funny guy. Not funny.

If you are outraged by the left’s filthy smear of Sarah Palin then you can appreciate why those very leftists get up in arms when one of their own is called a “slut” and a “prostitute.”

Too bad neither Mahrer nor Stern have been called on the carpet and compelled to repent. Rush has failed to learn their lesson–if you go on cable you are fire proof.

A pox on all of their houses. I think Fluke is a flake and a hack. But those are not derogatory, sexist terms. I must say I am entertained by the flip flopping outrage of those on both the right and the left. They don’t mind using sexist language as long as it is against their opponent. At least they are consistent on that point.

    Hey dumb ass, let me spell it out for you…. Ms Fluke is a student who was talking about “medical” benefits of using the pill for non sexual reasons!! She is a graduate student with ZERO national influence. Palin was a Governor and the VP nominee of a major political party who repulsively and cowardly could not admit that the cross hairs on her website targeted at Rep Giffords (WHO WAS SHOT) was not in bad taste. Palin is cunt and you are a right wing coward and a bigoted, period

    O’Reilly found out today that the ex communications director (whats her name Dunne or something like that) for the President is who recruited Sandra Fluke to do this.  What a sleaze ball!  The treatment of Sara and Hillary were disgusting and the media did nothing about it,  I just don’t get it!

    Maher is very juvenile when describing women. He marginalizes women by using sexual slurs to demean and trivialize them.So does Rush. Two juveniles not unlike the many in our society who resort to sexual trashtalk at women.

    The Leftbots are currently carrying water for Maher as he is now a big donor and gives TV time, etc. It;s ok to use the C word against Palin?

    No it’s not ok to patronize and curse or use sexual put downs whether from the Right or Left.  Those coming up with elaborate excuses for Maher’s vulgarities but condemn Rush are full of BS and hypocrisy.

    Women are tired of being bullied and portrayed in this manner.
    Our society is so sexist that men are unaware of the ridiculous sense of entitlement they express over women’s bodies,reproductive systems,contraception,wage equality, etc etc.

    I still wince when I hear the C word used. Particularly to parody and demean a woman because you don’t like her politics, etc.  I also wince when men descend to using sexual innuendo to “put us in our place” and marginalize us.

    I don’t care if Fluke is a fluke or Palin is a hack. Using sextrashtalk
    and other demeaning words of endearment against them is sexism at its worst. Sense of humor?  It’s not funny.

    Funny we have so many people commenting on NQ who are mad at Fluke for giving a young woman’s point of view in front of Congress, after the Republicans put together an all men panel (religious at that) to speak on woman’s healthcare and contraception.

    Did any of you actually listen to what she had to say and what exactly she was talking about?

    Here, why don’t you listen to here comment and then come back and tell me what is so wrong with what she was saying and why she needs to be so visciously attacked?

           Granted, I ain’t no Obot brainiac like you, but when the title of the hearing refers specifically to the Separation of Church and State my tiny brain figures this might have something to do with our Constitution. Silly me.

          I don’t need any hearings to justify, understand or explain my position on the 1st Amendment. You folks seem to go out of your way to find ways of ignoring it. In the words of Nancy Pelosi: That’s un-American.

          • Anonymous

            Why exactly were they even having that hearing? Because of the issue of contraception and the request from the Catholic Church to receive an exemption from insurance regulation. They spent a very big part of the hearing talking about contraception and birth control. How can the hearing have nothing to do with contraception and birth control when they spent so much time talking about it?

            The Democrats wanted Fluke to also appear and the Issa rejected that. His all male panel was a disgrace.

            What are you arguing now? 1st Amendment or what this hearing was about? Make up your mind.

    I’m certainly not the sharpest knife in the drawer but it seemed to me from the gitgo that the smart move would be to laugh at Sandra Fluke. She is either a liar or the dumbest consumer on the planet. $1000 a year for contraceptives? Seriously?

    By calling her a “slut” Limbaugh unleashed the outrage addicts and made her a victim instead of the fool, or liar she so obviously is.

       Great link. The underlying truth of this is that neither Walmart or Target are controlled by the unions. Thus contraceptives are less expensive. Dems don’t shop there for fear of helping our economy, I mean because they stand up for union thugs. Oh well… it’s something having to do with THEIR conscience clause rights.

    So you think Sandra Fluke is equivalent to Palin?

    So you think Howard Stern and Bill Maher is equivalent to Limbaugh?

    Bullshit. Typical false equivalency.

    Fluke is a private citizen commenting in front of Congress in a non-extreme ideological way about the medical benefits of widely accepted contraception. Palin is a national attack dog politician who has continually thrown herself out into the public and media eye with extreme partisan behavior.

    Limbaugh is a very influencial Republican Party leader, who has Congressional members who bow to kiss his ring. He has real influence in the Republican Party. Limbaugh is a major speaker at CPAC. Nobody of substance in the Democratic Party has ever called anyone a “slut” or “cunt”.

    ” I think Fluke is a flake and a hack.”

    How do you figure? Do you even know anything about Fluke and what she even testified to Congress about or even said?

      So you think Sandra Fluke is equivalent to Palin?

      Hell no. Despite my occasional political differences with Palin she is a firm believer in self reliability and personal responsibility. The woman knows how to and does fire a gun to provide food for her family. She also can catch and gut a fish for the same purpose. Fluke, on the other hand, goes to an exclusive and expensive university then complains that she can’t afford to buy contraception. And then begs the government to pay for it.

        “complains that she can’t afford to buy contraception.”

        Go read or watch Fluke’s testimony. She never complained she could not afford buying contraception. She said that it is a high expense for some women and that it should be covered by health insurance like other healthcare. By the way the health insurance would still have to be paid for by those how have coverage.

       From the article: “The show of support came after Pelosi appeared with the veteran congressman’s father, Rev. Jesse Jackson, at Operation PUSH headquarters in the city’s Kenwood neighborhood. Pelosi noted more than $940 million in projects have gone to the state’s 2nd Congressional District.”

      In other words, he’s brought home the pork so reelect him. As Porky the Pig says: That’s all folks!

      It’s troubling that 3 years after the investigation into JJJ began, not a single conclusion has been reached. Like anyone actually believes that it takes 3 years to figure out. But when you have the most transparent, least corrupt administration in the history of our country you tend to overlook such trifles.

    Larry, I don’t like demeaning women for ANY reason by anyone.
    And I still believe that any insurance that covers ED for men should cover contraceptive hormones for women.
    I am puzzled why men act like contraception for women is somehow related to an activity that women do by themselves. I know if I were a sexually active male I would want to know that as many women as possible that I meet have free access to birth control.

           Are you offering to send me a few cases of free condoms? And can I pick the brand and styles? Or would you prefer that someone else pay for them?

  • Anonymous

    Here is a great rebuttal that focuses on the actual issue Fluke brought up: that she is somehow being denied access to contraception by those big bad Republicans that believe in that Constitution thingie.

    She has an incredible array of birth control devices and techniques to choose from — including birth control pills, patches, caps, rings, shots, diaphragms, implants, spermicides (foam, jelly, cream, film), male condoms, female condoms, morning-after pills, Depo-Provera, IUDs, pulling out, tubal ligation and, yes, abortion. Do they still make chastity belts?

    She has the choice to have her boyfriend or husband pay for her preferred method of contraception. This seems like a reasonable accommodation assuming only he, and not all of society, is enjoying the pleasure of her company.

    She has the choice to shop around for less expensive birth control. As John McCormack pointed out in The Weekly Standard, generic Ortho Tri-Cyclen costs $9 at the Washington, D.C. Target store, or $297 for the 33 months of law school. This is 90 percent less than the $3,000 three-year cost that Ms. Fluke cited in her testimony.

    ~SNIP~

    She has the choice to economize on her routine expenses and not have cable TV, that evening out with friends or that new pair of shoes — and thereby free up money for contraception. Surely she would not testify that her neighbors should subsidize those things.

    But she is still the poor victim here without choices. Yeah right.

    As a woman who is obviously bright and accomplished enough to get into Georgetown’s law school, she had the choice of attending virtually all 200 accredited law schools in the United States, most of which are secular. But according to one report, she deliberately selected Georgetown so that she could fight this particular policy.

    She had the choice of selecting a law school that costs $23,432.50 per semester in tuition alone. This begs the obvious question: How is $297 in birth control costs over three years overly burdensome in relation to $200,000 in overall law school debt? This is not to mention the fact that a Georgetown JD is a first-class, one-way ticket to the one percent.

     

    Don’t know about the rest of you but my heart ain’t exactly bleeding for someone that pays over $23, 000 per semester to go to school yet complains she can’t afford contraception.

    • Anonymous

      That is such a BS rebuttal you reference. A lot of strawmen being set up in that response.

      Flop Flip do you even know what Fluke was even talking about? She is not complaining about access to contraception at all.

      Far from it. She talks about polycystic ovaries and ovarian cancer and how she believes insurance policies should cover contraception as part of woman’s healthcare.

      Do you even know what the issues are here?

      She also says that birth control can cost UP TO $3,000 and also gives an example of it costing about $100 a month, which is about average.

      The point she is making is that contraception is about woman’s health and therefore it should be covered like everything else by health insurance. What is wrong with that? She is speaking on behave of young women, who have not had a voice so far in this debate.

      And she is a “slut” for these comments? Or you can justify attempting to tear her down with you BS “rebuttal” (which does not even rebut anything she actually even says)?

      By the way this is not free contraception, as you still have to pay for the health insurance and it is cheaper for the health insurance companies themselves to cover health insurance than have to deal with the much higher costs of pregnancy.

         As I’ve written elsewhere, I have no problem providing a woman hormonal treatment for medical problems. In fact, I insist upon it. And  as someone else has pointed out, the Catholic church does cover this treatment.

        On a personal level I am not opposed to contraception. But I do not believe that I should have to pay for someone else’s contraception. Plain and simple.

        I haven’t called anyone a slut, nor have I in any way defended Limbaugh. So get your facts straight.

          Again your response makes it clearly you have no idea what you are talking about and are simply talking out of your ass.

          Just the way you talk about the economics of this shows your ignorance.

          It is a hell of a lot cheaper for insurance companies to pay for contraception rather than all the costs related to abortions or with unwanted pregancies and births. You will pay much much more in your insurance premiums for unwanted pregancies if your insurance company does not cover contraception.

          The insurance companies themselves want to cover contraception because it makes economic sense for them to do that.

          I never said you called her a slut, but you are attempting to trash her with your ignorant strawman BS rebuttal. You do not even know what Fluke said in her congressional testimony and yet you fell you have to comment about this brave woman, which in a way defends Limbaugh’s remarks.

              Go do a little more research before you comment.

              Free contraception for those who have it rejecting in their insurance plan on religious grounds will not increase premiums for all or you will not have to pay more. There is no evidence supporting that.

              Try reading this:

    I believe those who say this was just another ploy by the DNC to try to turn women against the Repubs. Since I’m still a registered Dem, I get all the spam emails from them. Today they wanted me to sign a petition and donate because women are being betrayed. We can’t let them use this the way they played the race card in 2008.

              Your comments suggests you are another ignorant commentator who really does not understand the issue or chain of events.

              First, it was the Catholic Church that requested an exemption from healthcare insurance regulations. So it was they who started it. They should just live with the same healthcare regulations that all insurance companies have to live with. It was the Catholic Church who made a big deal about it. You never see the Catholic church complaining about healthcare insurance contraception coverage in all the 28 states in the U.S. that currently require it or in Catholic countries like France and Italy, where contraception is covered by health insurance.

              Second, it was the Republicans who took it a step further and are pushing new legislation that would allow corporations and insurance companies to pick and choose whatever they wanted to include in health insurance, which goes against government insurance regulation, which sets the minimum standards.

              Third, it was Issa and his committee that wanted to have a hearing on this issue. The Dems wanted to invite Fluke to give a female perspective, but Issa did not allow Fluke to testify. It was Issa who made this a larger public debate and therefore brought the opportunity for Fluke to give her view.

              Fourth, it was Limbaugh who chose to ratchet up the level controversy on this issue.

    “She thinks that I must subsidize her sexual activity? Good God!! Where is the concept of personal responsibility anymore?”

    Larry, if you are bothered by the possibility of “subsidizing her sexual activity”, what are your feelings on health insurance coverage for women who,  rather than using a contraceptive, take the alternative route and get pregnant?  Because prenatal care is covered under insurance too.  So inevitably, your premiums are affected.  In fact, pregnancy is far more expensive than contraception, so your premiums would be affected much more.

    Isn’t pregnancy no different a choice, a matter of personal responsibility, than using contraception?  Isn’t it, in fact, a far more expensive one?

    I’d really like to see your opinion on the matter.  Should medical care for pregnant women be covered under insurance plans?  Do you feel you should be (to use your word) “subsidizing” someone else’s pregnancy?

    To be clear, I myself am firmly of the viewpoint that both contraceptive care and medical care for pregnant women should be fully covered by insurance plans.  I am just pointing out that using Larry’s logic (and many others here), they shouldn’t be.

    Also, if the Fluke woman wants contraceptions, fine, go buy as much as you want!  But don’t force a religious institution who are against it to pay for it, via their premiums (there is no such thing as free)), or if they want buy coverage that includes contraceptions, fine by me as well. What I don’t want is to be made to pay for it as pay of all insurance packages.

    This comes down against to why the hell am I being forced to buy a private product like Health insurance, which is a private product, and then the govt forces me to buy THEIR type of private product! what the hell next? are they going to force americans to buy chevy volts?!?!?!

      A full page ad needs to be taken out in the New York Times demonstrating point by point exactly how the Dems are being complete hypocrites (and lying bastards) on this issue of there being a GOP war upon women. Certainly these SuperPAC billionaires can afford to do something for the good of the party in general.

    Larry, you are so correct!  I remember all the sexist crap against Hillary, against Palin from the left, not one peep from the Obot LSM. In fact they were the cheerleaders for calling hillary a “white whore”, calling Palin a “c*nt”, and on and on….

    I cannot stand Rush, he was correct to apologize, but really lefties, you want to go there?
    NOW  in 2010 said it was ok that Jerry Brown’s team called Meg whitman a “whore”
    Hey you demonRats, you aren’t the party of women! you;re a-ok with bill Maher calling Palin a “c8nt” because he doesn’t have to worry about advertisers.
    this is why I’m no longer a demonRat, bunch of hypocritical scumbags is what they are.
    I’ve already received 2 emails from the DCCC asking for money to “fight Rush”, what a bunch of pathetic losers!

      Totally agree! If they think we’ve forgotten what Hillary had to endure, if they think we don’t remember how freely the race card was , if they think we’re too simple-minded to see what they’re doing, then let them keep talking. (I was going to say, give them enough rope, but was afraid some imbecile would interpret that as code for lynching.)

    The bigger issue here is not just hypocrisy, it is all of the spin and smoke screening of what is really happening in the media and our society in general. Any woman who stands up for anything is subject to the most vile verbal attacks on her character, mostly fabricated by men who like pornographic teenage boys go to wild extremes not based upon facts or reality.
    Words and phrases traditionally used to dismiss and diminish women to forms of property or sexual objects are throw at them at every turn.
    It does not matter if the man be a liberal, moderate or conservative, it is open season on any woman whos ideas don’t match up with theirs.
    I continue to be outraged that women face the prospect of public pillory every time they open their mouths. Witch hunting is alive and well in the USA.

    Our nation would do well to list the discriminatory hate words used to discriminate against women and then persue pushing back on those who use them like we do the “N” word.

    Men in public office only have their personal lives inspected when someone smells a whiff of hypocracy and honestly folks,it is usually a stench more than a whiff when it hits the news.

      One of the advertisers who pulled off Limbaugh’s show is Carbonite.
    The company’s CEO says they will withdraw their advertising in spite of Limbaugh’s apology in order to “contribute to a more civilized public discourse.”
    Worth noting: Carbonite is still listed as a sponsor of the Ed Schultz Show. You might recall what Schultz said about Laura Ingraham last year, something for which he also subsequently apologized.

    Seems to me a little pressure on these companies from Washington.

       I listened to Schultz’ radio show while Bush was the resident demigod and I admit it was nice hearing a lefty talk about something besides the usual limpid lefty crap.  In between slamming George Bush he talked about being outdoors, fishing, etc, which reminded me of the way I grew up.

      Once the ’08 campaign ramped up he turned on Clinton with a vengeance and his blog was totally overrun by the ugliest batch of O’bots ever seen on this earth. 

      But they’re all gone now, wiped out when his show hit the big time, network TV.  His blog was sterilized of O’bots and their attendent snivellers with no more concern than Schultz showed when he turned his back on Hillary Clinton.

      I don’t waste my time watching or listening to Schultz anymore.

    I have read the comments.  Many make good points.  But I don’t believe anyone has made this point:  What has happened to the idea that we should show “good manners” in public? 

    First, I also disagree–even for medical reasons–that we should have to provide free contraception through public money.  In most cases, having sex is a choice.  I would prefer that people have a better sense of self and are mature enought to make that choice only when they can pay for it themselves. 

    If they need contraceptive medication for medical reasons, they should get it through their insurance, even if that insurance is the public–but only for medical reasons.

    Second, I wish idiots like Limbaugh and Santorum would steer clear of social issues this election.  The right is not going to win those issues at this point, when the economy is the main concern for most.  It almost seems the left has deliberately set up these issues to bait the right.  It’s so foolish to take that bait. 

    But the right would have won an issue about “manners” in regard to the debate over “civil discourse” if they had really pushed the totally inappropriate t-shirts of anti-Palin supporters.

    I don’t like it when either side of the political divide displays really course behavior that my parents and grandparents would have grounded me for–and for a long time.

    That in itself was a testimony to conservative values if you ask me, because my religious conservative values made it mandatory to remember that God knows and sees everything i do.  It’s written up there somewhere, I was told.  I wasn’t raised to be totally paranoid, as those in early Salem were for instance, because I had a more loving and forgiving God.  But just as I wanted my mom and dad to be proud of my behavior, I wanted my God to be proud of it.

    I can’t imagine that Rush’s behavior is something he should be proud of here.  I am not sure Fluke’s reasons for testifying are well thought out and not knee-jerk ideological reasons.  (How is it good manners to ask for other’s tax money in this economy for anything like that when there ARE already systems in place to help a woman like the friend she mentioned?)  I especially think it was bad manners to wear those T-shirts about Palin.

    I deal with young Americans all the time.  A large majority are indeed polite, respectful of others, and mannerly.  But, it seems that there has developed a culture of anything goes in terms of behavior in political discourse.  Makes me very sad for our country.

      Really? So after 20 plus debates(right wing circle jerks) with the candidates running for the gop nomination loaded with endless harping surrounding abortion, homosexuality, religious zealot pandering, it was all because they were baited into their corner?
      Better luck next time because the reason these social issues are the focus of the gop nomination process is simply because they’ve always been the hypocrites that say they want government out of our lives……..except for…all sorts of silly canards. Go back and check out just Santorum and his focus on these issues and then ask yourself if he was baited??

         You aren’t wrong about Santorum and Gingrich. But a careful observer would also notice that the left has played to the right’s weaknesses. I don’t blame them. If I was still a Dem that is what I would do. It demonstrates to me that the GOP ain’t too smart at times and allows itself to get mired in political fights that the majority of Americans have no desire to enjoin. But they are learning. Fast.

           Yes, exactly.
          The reason I don’t vote for any candidate with a R or D next to their name down to my local level is those two parties and their candidates generally care more about where the next campaign contribution is coming from and not the more important issues we should be dealing with.
          ALL of the harping on the so-called social issues is a HUGE waste of time and energy that should be spent on things that actually matter and have an impact on our lives and country.

        Neoconhater–did you not notice that this social issue of abortion took off for Santorum right after O issued his “bait” in regard to contraception and the Catholic church?  Santorum was not doing that well until then.

        Santorum and Obama show no manners about civil discourse.  Santorum’s comments are always stupid when it comes to social issues.  Obama is the typical passive aggressive behavior that is the ultimate in bad manners.

        • Anonymous

           Wrong, very wrong.
          Santorum mentioned abortion during this campaign cycle long before Obama or anyone else said anything about contraception.

          • Anonymous

            I am trying to reason with you instead of argue with you.  Santorum’s social issues were not going anywhere during those early debates.  It was only after the passive/aggressive politics of the Dems that he started really getting stupid about them.  The Dems had no crisis to deal with, no real reason to bring up the Catholic employer/contraceptive insurance issue at this time.  It was a play to get the idiots like Santorum to surge and make the GOP look crazy. 

            That’s not to say that I totally disagree with some of Santorum’s ideas.  As an independent, however, I would prefer that the federal government stay out of these social issues and let each local and state entity deal with them, as each area of our country has different ideas about the social issues.  Freedom requires that one part of our country does not impose its social issues onto another part, as far as I am concerned.  We’ve always been a nation on the move.  People are allowed to live where they feel comfortable.

            Obama was clearly over reaching in regard to the 1st amendment and I believe he knew it when he made this a top issue for a news cycle.  He had every intention of making himself look good by doing the supposed “compromise.”  It was passive/aggressive politics.  It’s impolite. 

            It’s the same kind of behavior that drove me far in the opposite direction from a party I had stupidly supported since ’70 when I could first vote.  Obama’s politics during the nominating process and the general election were the most aggressive, bullying, in-your-face, passive-aggressive, underhanded strategies I have ever experienced.

            I am old enough to know what this country was like many decades ago.  The political quagmire we are experiencing is disgusting.  The tenor of the discourse, the sneaky behavior, the nast behavior is not American (at least the way I see the majority of the people interacting with each other on a daily basis).  It’s politics turned very, very, very UGL

    Rush Limbaugh Isn’t the Only Media Misogynist

     But the grand pooh-bah of media misogyny is without a doubt Bill
    Maher—who also happens to be a favorite of liberals—who has given $1
    million to President Obama’s super PAC. Maher has called Palin a “dumb
    twat” and dropped the C-word in describing the former Alaska governor. He called Palin and Congresswoman Bachmann “boobs” and “two bimbos.” He said
    of the former vice-presidential candidate, “She is not a mean girl. She
    is a crazy girl with mean ideas.” He recently made a joke about Rick
    Santorum’s wife using a vibrator.
    Imagine now the same joke during the 2008 primary with Michelle Obama’s
    name in it, and tell me that he would still have a job. Maher said of a
    woman who was harassed while breast-feeding at an Applebee’s, “Don’t show
    me your tits!” as though a woman feeding her child is trying to flash
    Maher. (Here’s a way to solve his problem: don’t stare at a strangers’
    breasts). Then, his coup de grâce: “And by the way, there is a place
    where breasts and food do go together. It’s called Hooters!”

    Libyan rebels desecrate graves of British war heroes

     

    In the videos posted online, headstones marking the final resting place of the
    famous Desert Rats in the Benghazi War Cemetery were torn down and
    crucifixes attacked with hammers.

    More than 1,000 soldiers from the 7th Armoured Division were buried there
    after serving in the battle for control of Libya and Egypt between 1941 and
    1943.
    The men in the footage, seen by the Mail on Sunday, are heard saying: “They
    are dogs, they are dogs.”

    Among the graves defiled by the extremists was the gravestone commemorating
    the Reverend Geoffrey Bond, who was the chaplain to the forces until his
    death in 1941 at the age of 30.

    Excellent comment from another site:

     Let’s summarize all this kerfuffle quickly:
    The election is coming up
    and Obamacare isn’t popular. The recent row over the contraception
    mandate and religious freedom wasn’t making the administration look
    good. Solution: change the message. In walks Ms. Fluke. She makes the
    most bizarre case for free contraception imaginable. It was laughable
    and ripe to be ridiculed. In his usual bombastic style, Limbaugh uses a
    term that the left has made almost acceptable in their attacks on
    conservative women. But now the left have their target, and they pit
    poor little college girl against mean ol’ Limbaugh. They steer the
    message from the problems with Obamacare to their old theme that the
    right hate women.
    Frankly, I wish the right would learn the dirty game of politics better.

    Have we all forgotten what Alinsky said about isolating your target?

      Seems poor little college girl, is 30 years old still a girl, isn’t as shiny and innocent as the left would like her to appear.Prior to attending Georgetown she was an active women’s rights advocate. In one of her first interviews she is quoted as talking about how she reviewed Georgetown’s insurance policy prior to committing to attend, and seeing that it didn’t cover contraceptive services, she decided to attend with the express purpose of battling this policy. During this time, she was described as a 23-year-old coed. Magically, at the same time Congress is debating the forced coverage of contraception, she appears and is even brought to Capitol Hill to testify. In an interview with Matt Lauer on the Today show, it was revealed that she is 30 years old, NOT the 23 that had been reported.In other words, folks, you are being played. She has been an activist all along and the Dems were just waiting for the appropriate time to play her.

        Her Beau Geste will not go unnoticed or unrewarded. Something tells me Ms. Fluke’s first job
        after graduation will relieve her permanently of the nagging fear that
        she will not be able to pay for the contraceptive of her choice. Sandra
        Fluke will thus join the long line of those like our President himself,
        who chose to enter the charmed precincts of Belmont through the vocation
        of promulgating the lies necessary to sustain progressive politics.

        In Ms. Fluke’s case the greatest betrayal is joining in the great elite conspiracy Murray calls not preaching what you practice. Take a good look at Sandra Fluke; she is no one’s victim. She appears to be a gutsy, ambitious striver who put in the library
        and class time to finish her degrees. But she did more than just show
        up on time for class, regardless of what many of us may think of her
        actions. In the manner of successful people, she grasped an
        extraordinary opportunity for advancement that presented itself in the
        form of Nancy Pelosi’s political requirements of last week.

        But
        successful individual striving is not the story Sandra Fluke chooses to
        tell all the little girls of Murray’s down and out Fishtown. She has,
        instead, thrown in her lot with those whose goal is to convince those
        little girls that the deck is stacked hopelessly against them, and that
        they can only get what they need through the beneficence of a nurturing
        government. For so doing she has already been rewarded with a
        congratulatory phone call from the President of the United States.

          So Sandra Fluke will join the conga line of liberals who spend much of their time convincing all the poor beknighted young women they encounter that unless the government pays for all their wants and needs they are victims.

          Forgive them their day, their daily bread, and circuses. Oh and  by the way, pay for their contraception and the children they have when they don’t have contraception.

          Then pay for any remaining college loans they may have taken out along the way. Because just because you took out a loan doesn’t me you are obligated to pay it back. 

          A free college eduacation is a right that should be free. (Hear the echo of me screaming that nothing is free?)

          We’ve come a long way baby. From wanting a level playing field and equal pay for equal work many of our gender now think that we must receive the things we want for free. Of course anyone with any sense at all knows that nothing is free.

          When the anti-choice clown car honks it’s horn with all sorts of silly songs of morality they scream over the level headed folks that try and explain to them that contraception is one of the best things out there that prevents abortions.

          But I agree with you, the taxpayer funds all sorts of things that perhaps people that can afford them should dole out their own money for. Too bad we spend trillions on endless wars and occupation….for decades. For me this is a far bigger problem.

              You flippper, yes YOU, have echoed EXACTLY the same statement, you have indeed condoned what Rush has done. What he has done, along with you and millions more, is repeat the lie this woman wants you and everyone else to pay for her contraception/sex life.  She very, very clearly does NOT!
              So the fact is yes, I have learned very quickly you have bought into some really lame falsehoods spread by Bill O’Rielly and Rush that this woman is a slut and wants the government to pay for her sex life. Quite simply and undeniably false except for those that want to believe anything the right wing and anything but liberal media feeds their feeble mind.
              So sparky, get a grip and maybe learn a few things about the subject at hand. Then maybe you wouldn’t have me telling you that yes, you are repeating EXACTLY the same garbage coming out  your hero Rush. I find it very amusing you claim to not support anything Rush is saying or done while doing  just that.

    Get ready for another 4 years of Obama.

    It is evident by the responses on this post that our side has lost the will to win. We are not dealing with normal opposition with this administration. THEY really are the enemy and there has been a silent coup from within.
    This whole affair was manufactured and our side are all falling in the trap.
    Poor young college student my ass.
    Rush should not have used derogatory language but should have exposed her for the fraud and hypocrite she is as evident at this excellent article.

    ——————————-

    You
    can be sure that Ms Fluke will not vanish from the spotlight after this
    bit of silliness. She surely will find a nice post-graduation slot at
    some “public interest” outfit, yammering for more free stuff for women
    and children.

     Some
    critics demanded that Republicans admonish Limbaugh for using “the
    public airwaves” to attack a citizen. These same defenders of private
    citizen’s are silent as the President uses the power of the White House
    to demonize and personally attack the Kochs, oil companies, and others.

    As
    the media focus our attention on poor Ms Fluke and demonize Obama’s
    critics, the Administration sends the First Lady out for photo ops of
    her supporting the troops while with little media coverage her husband
    slashes soldiers’ medical benefits.  Breitbart’s Big Government turned the spotlight on this real outrage.

       Damn, I have to disagree with you two days in a row. Bummer.

      First of all let’s not quit. Obama ain’t gonna get reelected. PERIOD!

      Despite the Dem’s efforts to maintain this farce this can easily be turned around. Yeah, the woman ain’t who she claimed to be. Dems rarely are. But the typical American sees things through the prism of their narrow uninformed vision, gathering their views on issues through radio talk show hosts and biased television commentators. Most people are so completely disgusted with politics and politicians that they couldn’t care less what the facts are. In short, they aren’t wonks like us. They are a sound-bite informed public. Politicians are very well aware of this and use their ignorance to their benefit. Divide and conquer. Just ignore the fact that we are pulling the wool over your eyes.

      To fix this obvious problem the GOP needs to do a few very simple (at least in theory) things.

      First: They need to muzzle Limbaugh and strongly condemn his non apology apology. If they are to successfully carry the mantle of restoring America’s moral fiber they need to demonstrate that doing so requires them to be moral.

      Second: There is no excuse for calling a woman a slut or prostitute. Limbaugh justified his outrageous statements by claiming he was an entertainer and that Obama was to blame anyway. What bullshit. And to justify this behavior by claiming the other side did it first is also a losing battle. It’s dividing people into taking sides on an issue when neither side is right to begin with. And it isn’t even the real issue at hand. In short, take the moral high ground by refusing to go down the road. Expose the Democrats as the petty thugs they really are by staying above the fray and giving people a real choice in November.

      Anyway, that’s how I see it.

    The hypocrisy is as always stunning. What is so disturbing to me is that we no longer seem to have rational discussions we simply jump from one “outrage” to another.

    Did Rush Limbaugh say something nasty and stupid? Deed he did. Is that unusual? Not a bit.

    Every day on some radio talk show/television “news” program/blog someone says something stupid. People do say stupid things. Some stupid people say lots of stupid things. Chris Matthews comes to mind. So let us all have a hissy fit. That will fix things.

    IMO these frequent little outrage theatrics are a sign of a lack of rational/reasonable thinking. Mostly the media is to blame for that. Nice little controversies are good for news cycles.

    What IMO is even stupider than Rush Limbaugh shooting off his big mouth is the fact that the POTUS got involved. It didn’t diminish my respect for the current POTUS because I have none. It does diminish the dignity of the office. I find that far more offensive than anything a POS like Rush Limbaugh could ever say.

    As for Ms. Fluke? The name-calling was stupid and juvenile. Her idea that her birth control should be free is equally so. Nothing is free. Someone has to pay for it. She just doesn’t want it to be her.

        I reject Rush’s terminology.  I also advocate for better health care for everyone; i.e., I have been told and have read that both using soap and toothpaste are important in maintaining a healthy body and encourage everyone to use both, but I don’t expect the government to force private insurance companies to cover the costs of the soap or toothpaste a person should use.

        Granted I believe there are situations where contraception should be covered by insurance (such as when prescribed by a physician for specific problems, diseases, etc.  IMHO we as a society have gone overboard on wanting everything covered under our health insurance policies and yet we continually complain about the rising cost of health care (which does include health insurance premiums)

      This is such a big deal that Barack Obama himself, the president, felt the need to call Ms. Fluke to find out of she was okay.

      Here is my question: Did Obama call Sarah Palin to find out of she was okay when Obama supporters were posing with T-shirts saying “Sarah Palin is a cunt”?

      Did the people that are so outraged now, dedicate all this virtual ink
      and time into expressing said outrage, dedicate the same type of virtual
      ink or outrage over the “Sarah Palin is a cunt” T-shirts?

      Did Barack Obama call Laura Ingraham to see if she was okay when Ed Shultz called her a “right wing slut.”

      Did the people that are so outraged now, dedicated all this virtual ink
      and time into expressing said outrage, dedicate the same type of virtual
      ink or outrage over the “right wing slut” remark by Shultz?

      Nope, some said Ingraham deserved it in their esteemed (snark)opinion.

      Did Obama call Michelle Malkin to see if she was okay after Bill Maher said “She’d ‘Name Her Vibrator “Obama”

      Did the liberals now howling in outrage stand up to defend Malkin? Nope, only conservatives seemed to step up for Malkin.

            This whole story is really about the President believing that he can force an organization into actions that are against their beliefs.  This isn’t about anyone wanting to deny women access to birth control – it’s about our president ignoring the Constitution as he has done continuously since he came to office.

    If you are looking for someone to defend the hypocrisy on the left it wouldn’t be me. Fortunately I woke up before our last national election. And I agree, the hypocrisy on both sides is somewhat amusing, if not sickening.

    The problem with Limbaugh is that his comments are hurting the GOP as we look toward the fall, regardless of the obvious hypocrisy on the left. The general populous couldn’t care less about he said she said nonsense. They hear a GOP dude calling a young Dem woman a slut and Palin is so 4 years ago.

    Limbaugh really needs to STFU and the Republican establishment needs to get in line and make him do so. Otherwise the Dems are going to persuade the populous that the Obamacare mandate is a matter of female contraception rather than a violation of the 1st Amendment, which most ordinary citizens understand.

    No surprises here.  Sadly, most people do not have ethical standards that bridge their other divides (e.g. politics).

    That, however, is a fault of most people. Most of us lowly humans are not capable of fair treatment to all, no matter their political, religious and/or other standards.  However, there is never — ever — any excuse for such behavior.

    As a woman, I find Rush’s remarks about Ms. Fluke to be abhorrent. Nothing about the shifting standards of those who rushed to her aid and/or attacked Rush have anything — anything — to do with why Rush Limbaugh was wrong to call her a “slut.”  The SOLE thing that matters is that Rush applied his nasty, demeaning remarks directly at her, and for that alone he needed to apologize.

    Best I know, the only women’s group that has treated women fairly across the political spectrum is The New Agenda - http://www.thenewagenda.net/

    TNA has mostly come to the aid of conservative women, particularly Sarah Palin who is an obvious favorite of “management” at TNA.  But they have also spoken out for Nancy Pelosi —  I forget the issue but she was slammed with a sexist attack, and TNA reminded all that TNA will support all women, no matter their views.  That said, I just checked TNA’s blog and cannot find a post addressing the Limbaugh/Fluke episode — very odd since TNA has gone after Limbaugh in the past.  I do see that TNA’s members are Twittering each other about Rush. But TNA can and should back Fluke.

    Um, I have a question.  What makes a woman a “slut”?  That, as a law school student, she takes contraceptives because, on the infrequent occasions that she goes out with a boyfriend, has sex with him?  WTF?  WHAT DO WE EVEN KNOW ABOUT FLUKE’s SEX LIFE?  The answer to that is next to NOTHING, except that we can infer she has sex because she uses contraception. 

    What about Rush’s latest wife?  Was she a “slut” because it is 99% certain that she and Rush had premarital sex?

    Then there’s Rush’s personal life history.  He’s been married how many times? He’s bedded how many women between (and perhaps during) his several marriages? Is his behavior not fair game too?

    If there were a word for “slut” that applied to men, I could use it to attack Rush, I suppose.  But the word “slut” is solely aimed at women — and it is not just flat-out wrong, it is exactly the kind of word that reminds women like me just how far we have left to go before our sex lives are no longer easy fodder for condemnation.

    I really don’t care who attacked Rush.  That is not nearly as important as the fact that he felt free to use such a demeaning term in reference to ANY woman.  

    It is telling how many sponsors that Rush has lost over this.  Yes, those companies got a lot of pressure from organized groups.  But I also think that the heads of those companies saw what a LOSER Rush is that he had to stoop to using such a vile term that NO woman should ever have to hear.

    As someone who’s been the object of one of Rush’s attacks, Larry, you know better than most how frustrating it is, and how difficult it is to defend one’s self.  If I were Ms. Fluke, and had innocently let myself be an example of the typical woman who uses contraception, I would be horrified by Rush’s ignorant attack that has made me nearly a household name.  

    The rest of her life, Ms. Fluke’s reputation will be synonymous with Rush Limbaugh calling her a “slut.”  This will affect EVERYTHING in her future — from job applications to personal relationships.  No one deserves that, even if — and I’m laughing here — having sex makes one a “slut.”  Good god almighty.

    • Kathy Fitzgerald

      Yes, TNA has been very good about calling out sexism.  I also want to point out that Ms. Fluke should never have been allowed to testify.  Just as abortion has been used as a wedge to control women’s votes, so now we have contraception.  Instead of the issue of a government mandate usurping religious freedom, we have twisted this into a women’s rights issue.  Again, women are the pawn, and we are taking the bait hook, line, and sinker.

      We are at the point of either filling our gas tank or feeding our families, and everyone is more concerned about birth control. Geez!

Again, women are the pawn, and we are taking the bait hook, line, and sinker.”  That statement is the proper take-a-way from what Obama did, not some women’s rights issue.  As I repeadedly say the way Obama sets up these issues to benefit him politically is by dividing every group including women.  That is why I as an AA despise him.  During the Civil Rights struggle most people of all races came together to effectuate change.  THIS IS A RELIGIOUS ISSUE OF REQUIRING PEOPLE OF DIFFERENT FAITHS TO BE COERSED INTO PROVIDING A BENEFIT THAT IS AGAINST THEIR RELIGIOUS TEACHING, PERIOD.  As president Obama is supposed to uphold the constitution not try to destroy it.  Yes unlike the lie he told about Hillary, he is willing to say or do anything to win.  Wake up people and especially women.  Do not fall for this BS, that is what he is banking on.  Forget the stupid Rush’s comments, this is all about this divisive president.  In order to win he is willing to destroy America as we know it.

            Exactly, the uniter is a blatant divider. The only person he cares about is himself. Everyone and everything else are mere pawns to be played at his leisure only for his benefit.

       What is most discouraging to me is that people on both sides seem to be inclined to reengage old battles. They justify this behavior, each blaming the other side like supposedly grown children arguing back and forth with ever increasing volume. Righteous indignation all around. And when I try to talk some sense into these people they accuse me of supporting one side or the other. It’s really stupid and it concerns me that the potential for rational political discourse is rapidly vanishing.

      My question to the “right” is this: Do you want to get even or do you want to win? And until I see a definitive answer my full political enthusiasm for any party is in limbo. Put another way: Are you in it to win it or do you just want to point fingers, assign blame and bitch?

      You are absolutely right Bronwyns. This woman will have this stigma forced upon her for the rest of her life. I know she had an agenda but, that said, she doesn’t deserve the treatment received by assholes like Limbaugh and the idiot “right.” On a more practical political level: Why make a martyr out of a planted stooge? Sure wish the GOP would grow a brain instead of focusing on the size of their balls.

        I love this:  ” it concerns me that the potential for rational political discourse is rapidly vanishing. …”

        It’s so sad.  One of the most important experiences of my life were the three years that I spent as a member of my high school’s debate team.  Besides the great experiences of traveling around the state and meeting smart kids from other high schools (some of who became longtime friends), it was impossible not to be affected by having to debate BOTH SIDES of very important issues.  And those issues!  They’ve not only not been resolved, they’ve grown ever more serious — one year, it was government-run health care systems (pro and con).  Another year, it was the proliferation of nuclear weapons.

          Most people, these days, don’t realize that their own beliefs about, for example, government -administered health care can be thoughtfully challenged.  That, for example, Medicare is one of the very best healthcare programs in existence, with a dramatically low rate of overhead.  (I hope this doesn’t get someone excited about refuting my comments about Medicare — I cited it as one example of a government program that does work, besides being badly needed by most seniors.)

        There indeed TWO SIDES to every issue.  If only people knew that …and could engage in that “rational political discourse” that you crave, Flop-Flipper.

           It puzzles me why we are even having this debate about an adult’s sexual behavior. Isn’t the point of being an adult the freedom to make your own choices? Who are these “moralists” or “immoralists” to challenge or judge what you or I or anyone else may or may not do in our private bedrooms? It’s absolutely none of their business. As long as it’s a consensual adult relationship that isn’t hurting anyone and we aren’t out trying to recruit people to join into our particular sexual lifestyle it ain’t nobody’s business but our own.

          I don’t care about Limbaugh’s sex life or Fluke’s sex life. Thinking about either makes me uncomfortable and a little sick. These discussions about sex or what kind of sex or how often someone has sex and with whom are a complete distraction from the initial 1st Amendment issue which will win the day. But not when idiots like Limbaugh buy into the “contraceptive” trap set by the Democrats.

          There are generally much more than two sides to every issue. We conveniently boil them down into two because it’s easier to debate opposing sides that don’t necessarily encompass the full issue at hand. And are generally used by politicians and moralists as a distraction from it.

        FROM THE BRUTALLY HONEST WEBSITE:

        Georgetown law student: Her peers are going broke buying birth control

        Craig Bannister at CNSNews.com did the math —
        and discovered that these co-eds, assuming they’re using the cheapest
        possible contraception, must be having unprotected sex about three times
        a day every day to incur that kind of expense. What Fluke is arguing,
        then, is that her fellow law students have a right to consequence-free sex whenever, wherever. Why,
        exactly, especially if it costs other people something? When I can’t
        pay for something, I do without it.

            bbf: “When I can’t pay for something, I do without it.”

            Yes, many, many of us were brought up that you pay your own way; but unfortunately it is becoming more and more a society of “the government (or those who have more than I) owe it to me.”

      True Confessions:  

      For the past hour, all I can think of is:

      “That cunt Olympia Snowe!  That cunt Kay Bailey Hutchinson!”

      … and giggle myself silly …

      While I understand where you’re coming from, I must respectfully disagree a bit. Mind you, I’m the big mouth who embarrassed a former boss in front of other faculty when he addressed me as “Honey”. So I’m not some relic who thinks women should “know their place”.

      I am, however, old enough to remember when it was a huge joke on SNL when Dan Ackroyd would call Jane Curtin an ignorant slut every week. I don’t recall any feminists demanding apologies or boycotting sponsors. I think Rush is of the generation that wrongly thought it was a funny thing to say.

       I am in no way defending the man or excusing him. Personally I think he’s jerk and have thought so ever since I first heard him utter his diatribes back in the 90′s. But I believe him when he says it was meant as a joke. A bad one, but at least he apologized unlike the Dems who attacked Hillary and Sarah on a daily basis.

      Frankly, if my understanding of slut is correct, I can see where Ms. Fluke would give that impression. Birth contol is not a $1000/ year expense unless you’re fucking like bunnies. The pill can usually be purchased for less than $20/month or $240/year. What would the extra $760/ year be used for? How much are condoms and why would she need to buy them anyway unless she didn’t know her partner was disease-free? If that’s the case, then I would think the word slut was applicable if she’s sleeping with that many men she doesn’t know. Additionally, any woman who goes before the public and says she needs that much birth control is implying that she’s of questionable character.

      So I guess I’m playing devil’s advocate here, but I think the whole thing was a set-up to try to make women turn their backs on the Repubs and conservatives.

     Bill Maher Distinguishes Himself From Limbaugh’s ‘Slut’ Remark: ‘I Don’t Have Sponsors’

    This may be true but that does not insulate him from condemnation.
    HBO, short for Home Box Office, is an American premium cable television network, owned by Time Warner. As of March 2011, HBO’s programming reaches 28.2 million subscribers in the United States, making it the second largest premium network in America

    I am going to let any company connected to HBO or Time Warner that an apology from Maher should be forthcoming or I will cancel any and all dealings with them.

    I would also like to Palin take any legal action that she can.

      This is a rare instance where I must disagree with you. It’s time to stop justifying the inappropriate comments coming out of Limbaugh and his following by pointing to the same type of insane behavior from the left. Sometimes we have to be the adults in the room. We do have an election to win after all. Let’s keep our eyes on the prize. We can get back at the libs once we win. I’ll bake cookies.

    Rush is an idiot. He fell for the trap. He should have talked about it in the context of Religious freedom instead of getting into the gutter.
    If he was going to apologize, he should have said he would be happy to, just as soon as Maher apologizes for referring to Pain in a worse derogatory manner.
     Then the onus would be on that perverted little toad to put up or shut up.

       you are so right HARP2.  Rush fell for their trap and he’s going to have a hell of time explaining this one to listeners.  He should have never went there. Larry’s points about Ms Fluke are right on.  I think we should look into her background something tells me we’ll find a shit load of things she doesn’t want us to know.  You can’t be an activist and 30 years old without something stinking.

        “  I think we should look into her background something tells me we’ll find a shit load of things she doesn’t want us to know.”

        You/ve got to be kidding me.  She testified to provide an example of a typical woman who uses contraceptives. She does not deserve to have her entire life history exposed.

        That’d be like writing a Letter to the Editor that garners debate and attention, and finding one’s entire life exposed.  Well, thank god that no newspaper editor would EVER allow such a thing to occur.  The same standard applies here.
