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.
*****ing john Boehner condemned the comment yesterday. The same John Boenher inadvertently caught commenting on the chest of a female reporter at a press conference in the late '90s (check it out it really happened). I don't think there is any real debate that the comment was wrong when even Boehner weighs in.
Don't confuse the fact that Rush is a shock jock and we shouldn't be surprised that he said with the fact it was wrong. Of course I'm not surprised Limbaugh made a horribly sexist comment. That's what he does. But just because its a habit of his doesn't make it right. just like when Imus made his comment. Was it surprising? No. Was it wrong? Yes. I simply find it hard to believe I have to explain this.
Some of the shyt I read in this thread blows my *****ing mind. Do y'all not have wives, girlfriends, or daughters? This comment should be condemned universally with no qualifiers. It is wrong. It will always be wrong. And except for the fact that Rush basically owns the whole system that broadcasts his voice he would be fired for having done it. Its not like its unprecedented, either. MNF shytcanned him. EIB didn't and won't. But that don't make it right.
I'm going to admit to having heard Rush. I wouldn't say I listen to Rush, he's just on the radio in the background. I heard his comment when he said it and I thought, "You got to be *****ting, me." It was both classless and uncalled for.
Debate someone on their facts, expose their bias, show that their argument is faulty. Don't call them names, especially don't call a female "****."
