Rush Limbaugh on Sanda Fluke being named as a finalist for Time Magazine's Person of the Year…
"It's not something I'm proud of here, folks, I must be blatantly honest. Nobody would know who she is if it weren't for me. If anybody is going to be named Person of the Year on that basis, it ought to be me!"
I think this is one point on which he and a lot of liberals would agree. You've got to admit, very few people have done more to further the progressive cause than Rush Limbaugh.

Here is how humor works, in case you were wondering: You wait for someone that you don't like for arbitrary ideological reasons to do something, and then when they do, you call them gay! BAM! Instant funny!
This was all laid out in Aristotle's Poetics dozens and dozens of years ago, as I'm sure you know…
Fox News political and foreign affairs analyst Monica Crowley reacted to a report that Georgetown Law student Sandra Fluke got engaged to her boyfriend by tweeting: "To a man?"
Following criticism of her on Twitter, Crowley wrote: "I love exposing the Left's total lack of a sense of humor."
OMG! I get! Hahahahaha!
You see, the big accusation against Sandra Fluke was that she was defending a woman's right to health care-provided birth control because she had sex with so many men that she couldn't afford all the birth control pills she needed because that is how birth control works.
So she must be a lesbian!
Classic humor joke, Monica Crowley! Classic humor joke!

Since everybody in the media seems to enjoy pretending that Bill Maher calling Sarah Palin "the c word" (as discerning news outlets describe it) is the exact same thing as Rush Limbaugh calling Sandra Fluke a "slut" and a "prostitute," it has apparently fallen upon Maher himself to point out the obvious difference…
"To compare that to Rush is ridiculous — he went after a civilian about very specific behavior, that was a lie, speaking for a party that has systematically gone after women's rights all year, on the public airwaves," Maher told Jake Tapper of ABC News. "I used a rude word about a public figure who gives as good as she gets, who’s called people 'terrorist' and 'unAmerican.' Sarah Barracuda."
Maher added, "The First Amendment was specifically designed for citizens to insult politicians. Libel laws were written to protect law students speaking out on political issues from getting called whores by Oxycontin addicts."
You know what? These are all excellent points, and I totally completely agree. There is no genuine comparison between Maher calling a person who wants to run the nation a bad word and Rush Limbaugh siccing his fan base upon, and impugning the reputation of, a woman giving testimony after being called before Congress. I think it would be a good idea for more people to pick up and spread this very basic truth throughout the media.
You know what? I have another good idea: We could just stop calling women "the c word." That's a thing we could do, isn't it?
