  1. Being called a slut by Rush Limbaugh was the best thing that ever happened to Sandra Fluke. She’s now a feminist celebrity, she’s on the SCOAMF’s speed-dial, and she’ll be able to leverage her fame into piles of money and probably a political career.

  2. [...] But I’m just pointing out the obvious.  After Rush Limbaugh called Sandra Fluke a slut, Obama phoned her.  It is plainly obvious to me that the only reason Obama would do that is that he saw an opportunity to play into the “Republicans’ War on Women” narrative. By phoning the helpless victim of misogyny, Sandra Fluke, he positions himself as some sort of crusader for women’s “rights.”  However, to anyone who is paying attention, Obama is not the “male feminist” he seems to want to portray himself as.  This was posted at Gay Patriot: [...]

  3. Right, V. But Sluts don’t ask for money to pay for sex, that would be a whore.

  4. To paraphrase Gertrude Stein: “A slut is a slut is a slut.”

    I don’t want to pay for her birth control, either. Nobody paid for mine, and I probably slept with more men than that Georgetown tramp anyway.

  5. A little off-topic, but I wonder if Rush’s advertisers made the right move in dumping him. The universe of consumers who will buy a Sleep Number bed (or whatever) because they dropped rush has to be very, very tiny compared to the universe of listeners who won’t buy a bed (or whatever) because they dropped him.

  6. Kirsten Powers has a very good article at Daily Beast on liberal opinionators not being called to account for similar characterizations of conservative women pols and opinionators.

    The diff in this case is that Fluke appears to have been speaking as a private citizen – in which case I would say Rush went too far.

    However, it’s worth asking:
    Who put Fluke’s name forward to testify?
    Who ultimately chose her?
    What are her affiliations and (if any) stated ambitions?

    Bc if she’s already implicated in these issues, then maybe she’s fair game after all for criticism and invective.

  7. Was watching an ABC News montage on the Houston Chronicle website about the kerfuffle. Thought it was odd that she went on Special Ed to whine about being called a slut.

  9. Whoopsie! Guess Rusty missed this one:

    “A 2004 report by the nonpartisan Guttmacher Institute found that in 2002, 86 percent of the plans that insurance companies typically wrote for employers covered the full range of approved reversible contraceptive methods (birth control pills, hormone injections, implants, IUDs and diaphragms), and only 2 percent covered no methods at all.”

  12. “Last May, Schultz, who has a program on MSNBC and a daily syndicated radio show, called conservative talker Laura Ingraham “a right-wing slut” and “a talk slut” during a radio broadcast. The remark generated a public outcry, prompting MSNBC to suspend Schultz.

    Before serving his suspension, Schultz went on the cable network and issued an unqualified apology to Ingraham. Calling his remarks “inappropriate” and “terribly vile,” he said, “I apologize to you, Laura, and ask for your forgiveness. . . . I have embarrassed my family, I have embarrassed this company. This is the lowest of low for me.”

    Ingraham responded by accepting the apology — at which point the matter died.”

  13. Rusty misses the point,

    Obama* didn’t call Ms. Fluke out of sympathy, he called for political points. Laura Ingram is just pointing out that other women have been defamed (come to think of it, let’s not forget Obama’s attacks on Gov Palin) and the President hasn’t called them to express sympathy.

    Heck the President hasn’t made a big deal out of calling the families of the soldiers killed in the Koran riots, but, IIRC, the state department did call the family of the Samir Khan.

    *I’ve stopped using ‘President Obama’ After his non-recess appointments, he doesn’t deserve the title.

    Or in other words, Ingraham acted in a principled matter, even though it removed a weapon that could have been used to advance “her side”.

    Hence why Fluke will never accept the apology — and why her syncophants like rusty, Obama, Cinesnatch, and Levi will make excuse after excuse after excuse for her.

    It has nothing to do with civility or principle. It has everything to do with power. Fluke and the Obama Party want only power, and they will do whatever it takes to obtain and hold on to it.
