    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.

    I'm with Hollis. I think we can agree Georgia is a conservative place, but nobody I know listens to, or really likes, Mr. Limbaugh. I listen to Neal Boortz myself because I like his Libertarian take on things (and he's a funny old man). I am not a fan of the Limbaugh's and Hannity's though because to me they're just Republican apologists.

    If you're going at it from a financial angle - contraception is a hell of a lot cheaper than pregnancy.

    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.
    Agreed.

    Some German newspaper is already spinning this into 'the Republican's war on women'... derp. Gotta push their beloved Obama, I guess.

    No, he did not.

    Yep. I do not know anyone who listens to Rush. About the only time I hear about him is when some liberals are having a fecal hemorrhage about something he said, or more usually their distortion of what he said (just as Fargin did above).

    People can disagree that employers, governent, or whoever should have to provide birth control to women. I can understand the argument. I can see the other side of it too. It's a debate worth having. It's a shame that the talking heads like Limbaugh can't just discuss it like "I disagree with Ms. Fluke on this and here's why..."

    With a lot of the public discourse in this country, it's gotten to the point where if someone supports a policy you don't like or belongs to a different political party, it's not that you just happen to have different opinions, it's because they're an @sshole or a ****; they're a bad person.
    When a woman says that the taxpayers need to provide her free birth control because during law school, she is spending $three grand$ on ******s, then according to the Webster's definition ("a promiscuous woman") she is in fact a ****. Not a **********, but definitely a ****.

    What about those who needs it for other health issues other than birth control? ****** is only ONE form of contraception. According to humanity she is your wife, sister, daughter, mother and grandmother.

    That is an entirely different issue. My and most any insurance plan would cover something prescribed out of medical necessity. The fact that it happens to be a birth control device is irrelevant. It would be covered. Free birth control at taxpayer's expense just so you can get your freak on is not that. I have to pay for my own damn ******s, and Ms. Fluke can damn well pay for her ******s herself as well.

    However, the "****" was talking about "an entirely different issue". She was talking about women who needs these medicines that you don't need (if you are not a woman. I could be wrong).

    She was talking about that, but she was FoS. Any health insurance policy will cover birth control if it is a medical necessity. Catholic hospitals and clinics will provide birth control devices if they are prescribed by doctors to treat conditions like uterine cancer or polyps, because they classify it as medicine, not birth control in those circumstances. So that whole point is just so much bullsh1t to emotionally manipulate the gullible.

    This is the exact comment made by the 'law student coed', Ms. Fluke, to which Rush Limbaugh was responding to.

    “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.”
    She is pushing for 'free' ******s for all at taxpayer expense. **** that (no pun intended).

    And here is who Ms. Fluke really is, and what her true motives are.

    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.
    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.

    That is a really, really dumb comment. Rush is a 'shock jock', just like Keith Obermann, Rachel Maddow, Michael Savage, Howard Stearn, Don Imus and the rest. Why does it surprise you that he would make such a statement? That is like saying 'there is no need need for the great white shark to bite that poor seal!' This is precisely what 'shock jocks' do. It is their job. Do you seriously not understand that?

    Win. His target demographic is overwhelmingly white middle-aged and older males. Its not like this is hard to google. That information is readily available.
