My first comment by way of referencing the below story is that Rush Limbaugh did NOT call Sandra Fluke a “slut” for “her views on contraception.” He called her a slut because, according to her own testimony, she and all the women she was speaking for were having sex three times a day every single day, according to her “$3,000″ example. And whether you like it or not, if Sandra Fluke was getting mounted three times a day every single day by myriad boys, she most definitely qualifies for the technical descriptive term “slut.”
Another article correctly reports the Sandra Fluke testimony as, “Sex-crazed co-eds going broke buying birth control.” That is simply factually accurate reporting of Sandra Fluke’s testimony.
Limbaugh also points out that if Sandra Fluke wants us to pay her for having all of this sex, she fully qualifies for the label “prostitute” as well. And, probably crassly, he says that if America is supposed to pay for Sandra Fluke to have sex three times a day every single day, the least she could do is set up a video camera in her dorm room so we can watch as a return on our investment.
You can argue that Rush Limbaugh was actually respecting Sandra Fluke. Based on her testimony and the numbers she provided, she is either an abject slut or a pathological liar. And he assumed that she wasn’t a pathological liar.
Well, anyway, Barack Obama, the community-agitator-in-chief, decided to invoke the full weight of the presidency of the United States in this crisis. Because if he’s spending his time on this issue, he can keep procrastinating dealing with the only slightly less important crisis of Iran on the verge of nuclear weapons and the whole Armageddon thing:
Rush Limbaugh condemned by Barack Obama for ‘slut’ remarks
Georgetown student Sandra Fluke was called a ‘slut’ and a ‘prostitute’ by Limbaugh because of her views on contraception
guardian.co.uk, Friday 2 March 2012 15.46 EST
According to White House spokesman Jay Carney, the president called Georgetown University student Sandra Fluke on Friday and expressed his disappointment that she was the target of Limbaugh’s personal attacks. Obama reportedly thanked Fluke for supporting his administration’s policy of requiring health insurance coverage of contraceptives for women.
The call came moments before Fluke was set to appear on the TV news network MSNBC. Speaking to host Andrea Mitchell about the president’s call, Fluke said: “What was really personal for me was [that] he said to tell my parents that they should be proud.”
Limbaugh called Fluke a “slut” and a “prostitute” on Wednesday after she expressed her support for the administration’s policy in an informal testimony on Capitol Hill.
Then, on Thursday, on his nationally syndicated radio show, he added: “So, Miss Fluke, if we are going to … pay for you to have sex, we want something for it. We want you to post the videos online so we can all watch.”
Limbaugh’s outburst has already prompted some advertisers to pull their support for his controversial show. Following heavy pressure from the Democrats, House speaker John Boehner described Limbaugh’s comments as “inappropriate”. Boehner argued, however, that the Democrats were using the incident as an opportunity to raise money.
On Friday, Boehner’s spokesman, Michael Steel, echoed the concerns, saying: “The speaker obviously believes the use of those words was inappropriate, as is trying to raise money off the situation.”
At last month’s hearing, Fluke pointed out that her fellow Georgetown students pay as much as $1,000 a year for contraceptives that are not covered by student health plans.
On his show on Wednesday, Limbaugh equated the payment to prostitution.
“What does that make her? It makes her a slut, right? It makes her a prostitute,” he said.
“She wants to be paid to have sex … She’s having so much sex she can’t afford contraception,” Limbaugh added.
Georgetown – itself a Jesuit school – has, along with a number of other Catholic institutions, denounced the Obama administration’s contraception policy as an infringement on their religious rights.
Rather than apologize, Limbaugh has stood by his inflammatory rhetoric. On his Thursday show, he referred to a controversial joke made by Rick Santorum’s wealthy backer, Foster Friess, suggesting women should hold aspirin tablets between their knees in order to remain abstinent.
“I will buy all of the women at Georgetown University as much aspirin to put between their knees as they want,” Limbaugh said.
The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee is gathering signatures for an online petition calling on Republican leaders to “denounce Rush Limbaugh’s cruel tirade against women”.
Fluke responded to Limbaugh in a written statement, saying: “No woman deserves to be disrespected in this manner. This language is an attack on all women, and has been used throughout history to silence our voices.”
Obama’s choices about who he calls and who he doesn’t is actually rather fascinating: he never bothered to pick up the phone and call the parents of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry who was murdered as a result of Obama’s Fast And Furious gun scandal, for instance.
If that isn’t outrageous enough, allow me to also point out that the same Obama who is outraged by Rush Limbaugh’s calling Sandra Fluke a “slut” just accepted $1 million from Bill Maher AFTER Maher called Sarah Palin a “cunt.”
Barack Obama’s outrage is purely hypocritical and purely ideological. That is simply a documented fact.
Well, something seems to be worth remembering about all of these self-righteous liberals as we contemplate the horror of Rush Limbaugh calling a woman who spends $1,000 a year on her out-of-control sexual addiction; it wasn’t all that terribly long ago that David Letterman called Sarah Palin a slut. And somehow that outraged telephone call from Barack Obama never came:
David Letterman Calls Sarah Palin A Slut
Jan 10, 2009

The Liberal media purveyors of Political Correctness and moral judges of what is it acceptable to say, and what is not acceptable say. This normally translates in to say anything you want about a right wing person, but, and this is a very big but, say anything against a Liberal Left person and you are immediately guilty of a range adjectives ending in “ist”.
As with any left wing agenda, be it AGW, Political Correctness, immigration et al, there is always rank and blatant hypocrisy from those that seek to convince us they know better.
The left has long championed the cause of women to be treated as equals and not pieces of meat, yet the very first to indulge in sexually demeaning and degrading slurs on female politicians are the very same left, that claim to champion their cause.
David Letterman sinks to a new low, even for an East Coast liberal broadcaster when he suggests that “Sarah Palin should update her slutty air stewardess look“
And the point of making such a remark politically, or for any other reason is?
In Aardvarks experience “slut” is a term used by the micro dicked to deal with rejection #justsaying
I hope Sarah Palin isn’t waiting by the phone for the president to call, thinking it’s the least he could do to NOT show what a hypocrite ideologue divider he is. Because Obama is very much all of those things, and there won’t be a call coming.
Oh, and by the way, Sarah Palin’s FOURTEEN YEAR-OLD DAUGHTER might be hanging around by the phone waiting for that Obama phone call, too: David Letterman accused her of slutting around and getting knocked up by baseball player A-Rod.
I don’t know. It is still theoretically possible that the left will have a self-righteous outraged hissy fit about something they didn’t already do first to a conservative. Highly unlikely, I know. But you have to admit it is theoretically possible by the sheer statistical probabilities involving random chance that it could happen.
Sandra Fluke is an abject liar. She is claiming that women are spending $3,000 on birth control: WOMEN CAN BUY GENERIC BIRTH CONTROL AT WAL-MART FOR $9 A MONTH. That’s $324 over three years – kind of a long way from $3,000.
Oh, and I understand she could get birth control at Sam’s for $5.
Oh, and for what it’s worth, she could get condoms for FREE.
Which is to say that $3,000 birth control is just another demonic lie from the demonic left. Liberals like Sandra Fluke and Nancy Pelosi who brought this liar in to falsely testify have no honesty or integrity and they simply lie like the hell they are going to to manipulate stupid people.
Further, since Sandra Fluke is trying to force universities – and in particular THE PRIVATE CATHOLIC UNIVERSITY THAT SHE CHOSE TO GO TO – to provide birth control, let’s point out the fact that Georgetown law school costs $23,432.50 PER SEMESTER. NOT COUNTING TEXTBOOKS, fwiw. Forty seven thousand dollars a year is no problem for this “slut,” but that $108 she has to spend on birth control for her own private business is just busting her tiny little balls.
Rather than demonize and attack the Catholic Church and her universities, why doesn’t Sandra Fluke go after the REAL crisis facing university students: THE OUT OF CONTROL TUITION INFLATION which is even WORSE at public colleges and universities that are completely dominated by the left???
Bottom line: if Sandra Fluke wants to slut around and live in a universe of outright lies, the very least she can do is go to one of the many leftist public colleges that love that garbage.
What’s most fascinating is how often liberals lie out of every orifice in their bodies and conservatives still end up being the ones who have to apologize.

Fluke, who was portrayed as a 23 year-old co-ed, is actually 30 years old and by her own admission chose to attend Georgetown precisely so she could battle their insurance policy since it does not cover contraceptives. What a handy witness she turned out to be last week on behalf of Obama’s contraception mandate. So important was she to Obama’s theater show that he personally called her to apologize for things Rush Limbaugh said on his program concerning her testimony.
Fluke testified that she and her classmates have to spend $3,000 during their time at Georgetown on contraception, and it’s simply an unbearable financial burden for them. If they paid top-dollar for birth control pills, that would be about $600 a year; $1,800 for three years. A box of condoms ranges from about $4.00 to $15.00. That’s maybe another $100 a year, but still nowhere close to $3,000.
