"I think any woman who has ever been called these types of names is [shocked] at first," Fluke said. "But then I tried to see this for what it is, and I believe that what it is is an attempt to silence me, to silence the millions of women and the men who support them who have been speaking out about this issue and conveying that contraception is an important health care need that they need to have met in an affordable, accessible way."

This guy is, I believe, a racist."[182] These remarks drew criticism, and resulted in a boycott promulgated by Color of Change.[183] In 2009, the boycott resulted in at least 57 advertisers requesting their ads be removed from his programming, to avoid associating their brands with content that could be considered offensive by potential customers.[184][185][186] He later apologized for the remarks, telling Fox News Sunday anchor Chris Wallace that he has a "big fat mouth" and miscast as racism what is actually, as he theorizes, Obama's belief in black liberation theology.[187]
Sound familiar?

What I just heard, ON FOX NEWS, was Rush was trying to use vernacular common to democrats when he spewed his santorum out. i.e.; dems call women sluts normally.

Please, anyone good at extracting this sort of shit from fox, please publish it in detail because it erases rush's bs fake apology.

I am totally on Sandra Fluke's side on this issue, but she could also go to Planned Parenthood and get free birth control - at least until the Rethuglicans cut funding for it.

I think they should just make it so that ALL insurance plans cover birth control - no possibility to opt out. If you don't need/want birth control - you don't have to use it. I have two co-workers who have their tubes tied and one who is post menopausal. They still have birth control AND maternity coverage on their insurance.

God, reading the comments on articles about this topic really makes me loathe a large portion of humanity, and shows why this country is so fucked up.

LOL. If you knew Pamela you wouldn't say that. She's a LOT more confrontational than I am. She's, umm.... much less averse to profanity than I am. Plus, she's Jewish. And yes, she's a friend of mine.

Well, the shouting isn't about people being forced to use birth control; it's about Why Should My Taxes* Pay for Sluts To Have Slutty Sex?

(A sentiment that leads one to hope health-care reform will have generous coverage for the treatment of mental disorders.)



*taxes, or 'company profits' in the case of companies or organizations unhappy at being asked to provide insurance plans that cover birth control.

Here's an interesting article that nicely rebutts some of the arguments coming out of the highly uncomfortable Repubs trying to defend Rushbo.

Quote:
Are we being fair to Rush Limbaugh? - CNN.com

Point 2: The cases that conservatives cite as somehow equivalent to Limbaugh's tirade against Fluke by and large did bring consequences for their authors.

After David Letterman for example made an ugly joke about Sarah Palin's daughter, he delivered an abject seven-minute apology on air. (To which Palin responded by refusing the apology and insinuating that David Letterman was a child molester.)

When liberal talker Ed Schultz nastily called my dear friend Laura Ingraham a "slut" on his radio show, MSNBC responded by suspending Schultz for a week without pay from his TV show. Schultz likewise apologized in person on air. (Ingraham accepted the apology with grace and humor.)
It also goes on to talk about Bill Maher. I disagree a bit with that analysis, though (the part about Maher not being a powerbroker). He's maybe not the owner of the same falsely elevated status as Limbaugh, but I don't see the logic there, he's close enough.

I couldn't possibly know her or anyone over at JihadWatch or frontpagemag.com... not Jamie or Robert or David or any of them. Because that would be impossible.

Do you believe that conservatives live in holes and never meet each other?

Oh, Rush. My, my, such hubris.

There is NO media outlet or program in America that can't be bought around.

Except maybe Wheel of Fortune/Jeopardy. It's HARD to make rating point goals on a budget without that one!

But that's TV. A "must buy" radio show that does a 5 share in NYC?

He's either out of his mind and/or blowing major smoke.

Bill Maher is #2 on my list of people I want to use that new Japanese STFU gun on right behind Rush. They're both followed by Pat Robertson, but I'd really prefer to just staple his lips shut. That would just be much more satisfying.

Maher lost his show on ABC when he made some comments that offended a lot of people. He's on HBO now so he doesn't depend on sponsors. It's doubtful if he could get another show on commercial television. I think a comparison between Limbaugh and Maher is fair. I happen to think Maher is funny so it would be a bit hypocritical of me to consider Rush beyond the pale (even if I think he's an asshole), but his advertisers not wanting to be associated with him is completely understandable and laudable imo.
