That is my experience, it is not a scientific study. I know a number of pretty conservative people who do not listen to Rush and think very poorly of him. Only time I hear of Rush is from the liberals that I know or on this forum who are bashing him. Now if you are saying I am lying, just come out and say it. Nice insult BTW.
Agreed.I also get that radio/talk show hosts need to be generate laughs to retain an audience. However when was the last time Jon Stewart or Colbert called someone a ****? There is difference between being funny and being plain obnoxious. Let's face it Rush is a douchebag.
Some German newspaper is already spinning this into 'the Republican's war on women'... derp. Gotta push their beloved Obama, I guess.
This is the exact comment made by the 'law student coed', Ms. Fluke, to which Rush Limbaugh was responding to.
She is pushing for 'free' ******s for all at taxpayer expense. **** that (no pun intended).“Forty percent of the female students at Georgetown Law reported to us that they struggled financially as a result of this policy,” Fluke said, referring to the fact that the university doesn’t pay for contraception. “Without insurance coverage, contraception, as you know, can cost a woman over $3,000 during law school.”
And here is who Ms. Fluke really is, and what her true motives are.
This whole thing was a political put-up job from the beginning, with the media and congressional Dems as willing accomplices. Just as George Stephanopolous brought up a bizarre fictional birth control scenario and hammered Repubs with it when he was moderator at one of the debates, the birth control thing keeps getting introduced over and over. It is part of the Dem's election strategy to try and demonize Repubs in the eyes of women voters. We will be seeing it again, and again, and again until November.[CENTER]Sandra Fluke’s Appearance Is No Fluke

For me the interesting part of the story is the ever-evolving “coed”. I put that in quotes because in the beginning she was described as a Georgetown law student. It was then revealed that prior to attending Georgetown she was an active women’s right 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. This morning, 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 all along.
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.
While she is described as a “third year law student” they always fail to mention that she is also the past president of Law Students for Reproductive Justice.
