I'm not sure there's anything to be gained from perpetuating the cycle of outrage that surrounds Rush Limbaugh and ultimately boosts his ratings, but like a shark that must swim to survive, a political blog must continually remind readers that Rush Limbaugh is still an awful person…
"Can you imagine if you're her parents how proud of Sandra Fluke you would be?" he said. "Your daughter…testifies she’s having so much sex she can’t afford her own birth control pills and she agrees that Obama should provide them, or the pope…"
"Three thousand dollars for birth control in three years? That's a thousand dollars a year of sex — and, she wants us to pay for it," Limbaugh said, adding that high school boys applying to college should consider Georgetown. "They're admitting before congressional committee that they're having so much sex they can't afford the birth control pills!"
The conservative radio host continued: "What does it say about the college co-ed Sandra Fluke, who goes before a congressional committee and essentially says that she must be paid to have sex, what does that make her? It makes her a slut, right? It makes her a prostitute. She wants to be paid to have sex. She's having so much sex she can't afford the contraception. She wants you and me and the taxpayers to pay her to have sex. What does that make us? We're the pimps."
Sandra Fluke is a Georgetown Law student who testified before Congress in support of legal mandates for contraceptive coverage. Rush Limbaugh is 61 year old man who believes the number of birth control pills you take is correlated to how sexually active you are. It's a mistake he can be forgiven for given his usual experience with sex-related drugs.
Mensch that he is, Limbaugh soon
LIMBAUGH: So Miss Fluke, and the rest of you Feminazis, here's the deal. If we are going to pay for your contraceptives, and thus pay for you to have sex. We want something for it. We want you post the videos online so we can all watch.
We also have USDA farm subsidies and FDA drug inspection in this country, so by this logic, I estimate about 5% of the federal budget is spent paying Limbaugh to snort Oxycontin off a corn dog, but dear Lord, I don't want to see that video.
