Sandra Fluke Refuses to Accept Rush Limbaugh Apology

Jeffrey Meyer's picture

On Monday’s edition of ABC's The View, Georgetown Law student Sandra Fluke appeared on the show on what was essentially a 5-minute monologue for her to distort the contraception debate.  The "exclusive" interview with Sandra came in response to Saturday’s apology issued by Rush Limbaugh over controversial language he used to describe the student.

Fluke was given the opportunity to respond to Limbaugh’s apology but rather than accept it, she instead went on the attack, “No, and let me be clear that I think his statements that he made on the air about me have been personal enough so I'd rather not have a personal phone call from him.”  [See video below.  MP3 audio here.]

In response to a softball question by Joy Behar asking her to name names of others who have used "derogatory statements" about her, Fluke enthusiastically told the audience to go to the liberal website Media Matters.

The View along with the rest of the liberal media has decided to portray Fluke as a victim and as in the words of Elizabeth Hasselbeck, “advocating for women.”

Despite the fact that Fluke's own testimony and subsequent statements are filled with inaccurate information, no one in the media has once asked her to defend any of her ridiculous statements such as, “The idea that it's about taxpayers or the government paying for contraception and it is absolutely not.”  The last time we checked, those private individuals paying private insurers are still taxpayers despite Fluke’s false claims.

In actual fact, Planned Parenthood, the nation's largest provider of abortion services, receives approximately $75 million in federal funds according to the New York Times.

Below is the relevant transcript.


The View
03/05/2012
11:32 a.m.

BARBARA WALTERS: The woman at the center of a firestorm of controversy is a "View" exclusive right now. On February 23rd, 30-year-old Georgetown University law student, Sandra Fluke, testified before Congress that the President's health care bill must include coverage of contraceptives saying that the out-of-pocket cost is too big a financial burden for female students and she was speaking about her own college. Last Wednesday radio host Rush Limbaugh lashed out at her in, well, take a look at what he said.

RUSH LIMBAUGH: What does it say about the college coed Susan 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? Makes her a prostitute. She wants to be paid to have sex. She's having so much sex she can't afford the contraceptives. She wants you and me and the taxpayers to pay her to have sex. What does that make us? We're the pimps.

WALTERS: So what you were talking about was the fact that your own university does not include this in the health insurance, right?

SANDRA FLUKE: Yes, I was sharing stories of women who attend my university who've been unable to access contraception as a result of the lack of insurance coverage and the types of dire medical consequences they've suffered as a result of that. One woman lost an ovary, things like that.

ELIZABETH HASSELBECK: So you’re advocating for women?

FLUKE: Yes.

WALTERS: Sandra, when you first heard this, what did you think? Can I call you Sandra, first of all.

FLUKE: You may, thank you. Well, initially I was, of course, shocked and stunned. I think any woman who has ever been called these types of names is at first, 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.

WALTERS: You know, he has -- as you know, has since issued an apology to you. Hasn't called you but --

FLUKE: No.

WALTERS: So I --

JOY BEHAR: He has not called you?

FLUKE: No, and let me be clear that I think his statements that he made on the air about me have been personal enough so I'd rather not have a personal phone call from him.  

[ Cheers and applause ]

WALTERS: I mention it because President Obama did call. He has apologized and I have been asked to read a statement which he didn't give to us but which he gave in general. “For over 20 years I've illustrated the absurd with absurdity three hours a day five days a week and this instance I chose the wrong words in my analogy of the situation. I did not mean a personal attack on Miss Fluke. I think it is absolutely absurd that during these very serious political times we are discussing personal sexual recreational activity before members of Congress. My choice of words was not the best and in the attempt to be humorous, I created a national stir. I sincerely apologize to Ms. Fluke for the insulting word choices.” Do you accept his apology?

FLUKE: Well, let me just say this and I encourage everyone to look at the statement in its entirety online but what I have to say is that I don't think that a statement like this issued saying that his choice of words was not the best changes anything. And especially when that statement is issued when he's under significant pressure from his sponsors who have begun to pull their support from the show.

BEHAR: Do you think he should be fired?

FLUKE: I’m going to leave that up to the sponsors, up to Clear Channel Communications and to the members of the American public who support those companies and what I'll just say is that Americans have a long tradition of supporting companies that share the values that they have and I'm sure that they will continue to uphold that tradition.

HASSELBECK: What exactly did the president say to if you don't mind me asking because I think it's incredible that he extended.

FLUKE: Yes, it was very kind and I came away from it thinking he was such a kind man. He offered his concern, wanted to make sure that I was doing all right and wanted to express his support and thank me for speaking out on what he considers to be an important matter of public policy and what I think millions of American women know is an important matter of public policy.

WALTERS: Your school has not changed its policy in spite of your --

FLUKE: It has not but they did issue a statement in support of me regarding this type of problematic rhetoric and I appreciated that very much.

BEHAR: But paying someone to have sex, when he's on Viagra which I know he is. He was caught at the airport with someone else's prescription of Viagra, aren’t, isn't that the same thing for him? I mean, the hypocrisy is incredible also on top of everything else. But you have said that other people have made derogatory statements about you also. You want to name some names.

FLUKE: Well, I would encourage everyone to go to Media Matters. They have an excellent story on their website that gives a list of the various commentators who engaged in this type of language, Glenn Beck for one.

BEHAR:  Duh.

FLUKE: And I think it is really important for us all to understand this was not one person who went crazy and made funny, outrageous statements. This is evidently a segment of our political commentators who think that it's acceptable in today's society to say these things about women.

HASSELBECK: Do you take the stance on it because this happens -- I don't listen to Rush. This is really the first time I heard him say that and it's repulsive. Do you feel the same about the commentators we mentioned earlier on the show who are -- in the same way attacking women all the time with their misogynistic remarks.


FLUKE: I think it's unacceptable no matter who is saying it and no matter what side of the issue they're on but I do think that we have to be nuanced and being nuanced is not inaccurate, it’s more accurate. Because I think, Whoopi, I heard what you were saying at the beginning. I think you're doing a disservice by comparing yourself. Because this was not someone who made one accidental statement. This was three days of significant portions of his three-hour show. He insulted me and the women of Georgetown who have received no apology. He insulted us over 53 times.

SHERRI SHEPHERD: Sandra, before we go, I want to ask you because there's a lot of people who say they don't think that birth control should be covered under health care.

FLUKE: Uh-huh.

SHEPHERD: Especially with universities, as well. What would you say to these people?

FLUKE: Well, I want to correct the misperception which Mr. Limbaugh and a lot of other commentators have been putting out there to confuse the public. The idea that this is about taxpayers or the government paying for contraception and it is absolutely not. This regulation covers private insurance and it wants to have this type of medical drug treated in a way that's similar to how other medical drugs are treated and it is health care. Women need this medication to prevent seizures, to prevent cysts from growing on their ovaries. I’ve heard from so many women who’ve  talked about why they need this critically not to mention the important medical need of preventing unintended pregnancies.

WALTERS: Whether people agree or do not agree with you, it took great courage and again to point out you're not talking about taxpayer money. Thank you for coming on "The View " and talking about it.  We appreciate it.

FLUKE: Thank you.

Comments

#1 Fluke's 15 minutes of fame

I'm sure she has now assured employment with some feminist group when she gets her law degree.

#2 She would fit in fine

with the group NOW (National Organization for Women).  Seems the group is only concerned when it involves "women" on the left.

This media whore would work out great as a half-wit attorney for them.

"Apparently, I'm supposed to be more angry about what Mitt Romney does with his money than what Barack Obama does with mine"

#3 At least we know one thing ...

Her refusal to accept an apology shows Ms Fluke has learned nothing about catholic values. In the grand scheme of things, someone calling you a name is not reason for a lifelong vendetta. Ms Fluke has now surrendered all of the high ground.

The time has come to ask Ms Fluke what catholic values she has learned at a catholic school.

#4 catholic

She didn't go to the Catholic school to learn Catholicism. She went to the Catholic school to change it to her way of thinking. Kinda reminds me of Shallow Hal ..the woman that was attractive on the outside but ugly as sin on the inside. We all know people like Ms Fluke. Wicked witch of the west.

I want to know why we let these people run over us. I am not inclined to let this little thirty something twit tell how I should behave. Get real!!!!

“Do not go gentle into that good night”, “Rage, rage against the dying of the light”. Welsh poet Dylan Thomas (1914–1953).

#5 Fluke

She is a 30 year old "professional". She is a professional activist with every womens group known to stir trouble and it has been said that she purposely chose this school because it was Catholic. She knew what was the health care consisted of and her goal was to get them to change their policy.

A "slut" I can't say that she is. But she is a fraud and is in bed "sorry the pun" with the socialists and communists in the Democratic Party.

squirefld

#6 So she's not a slut.....

she's a whore. A media whore.

Media Matters??? For the truth?????

Oh, my sides.

#7 She's a Victim!

She definitely knows how to play the victim card. Now where were the ladies of "The View" and where were their voices of indignation when Bill Maher referred to Sarah Palin as a "stupid twat" and a "stupid c*nt"? Did Joy find that disgusting? Where were they when David Letterman said Sarah Palin looked like a "slutty flight attendant"? Did Babs Walters chastise him for that? Or when Ed Schulz called Laura Ingraham a "talk slut"? What did we hear from the ladies of "The View"? The silence was deafening.

#8 I'm sure Ms. Fluke was well

I'm sure Ms. Fluke was well compenstated for her little Media Matters plug...free birth control for life seems like an appropriate form of payment. Just curious: has she appeared on any Fox News broadcasts yet?

Republicans believe that every day is July 4th. Democrats believe that every day is April 15th. -Ronald Reagan

#9 So, she IS a shill for Soros?

And, the DNC?  Thanks for clearing that up, Ms. Fluke.

To re-elect Obama would be like the Titanic backing up and hitting the iceberg again.

#10 Stick note campaign

Last year I started doing the sticky note campaign. I kind of got a way from . Here are some examples, not mine:

Your tag line will make a great note. I think I'll leave on the gas pump today:

I use the ruled sticky notes.

#11 Does Miss Fluke approve of

Does Miss Fluke approve of Obamas acceptence of the donation to Bill Mahr? Did anyone ask her?

#12 A well-conceived and executed ploy by the Left...

...and Rush walked into it. Consider this a teachable moment; this will not be the last of these despicable tactics, all engineered and orchestrated from a desperate White House. Rush will survive; we will survive; this Manchurian Candidate Presidency will not.

#13 In a sense, yeah -- and Fluke definitely sounds lawyer-ish

It's their usual tactic to put "victims" before cameras in the hope that they get attacked, and thus gain sympathy for the cause.  They've done this with gay veterans,  for instance.

So, while they couldn't count on Limbaugh taking the bait (they were likely aiming for the GOP candidates), he indeed did, and they've piled on for all its worth.

FLUKE: Well, I want to correct the misperception which Mr. Limbaugh and a lot of other commentators have been putting out there to confuse the public. The idea that this is about taxpayers or the government paying for contraception and it is absolutely not. This regulation covers private insurance and it wants to have this type of medical drug treated in a way that's similar to how other medical drugs are treated and it is health care."

The issue isn't about access to contraception, or taxpayers/government paying for it.

It's about mandating that health insurers provide contraceptives "for free" with the full knowledge that those costs will be added to the premiums paid by employers like the Roman Catholic Church -- a service they cannot in sound conscience provide without violating religious principal.

Were I an interviewer, I would've asked Ms. Fluke where she gets her contraceptives now, and who pays for them.

#14 This media matters...

This Media Matters:

Sandra is into leftist drivel.

#15 Come here to Newsbusters for the truth

I say come here to Newsbusters and also go to Rush Limbaugh, Mark Levin and Glenn Beck for the truth.

#16 I wonder how much the MM plug was worth

To be blunt, I respect prostitutes more than this bimbo eruption. At least they don't take government handouts for the most part.

#17 Let me guess. On the Media

Let me guess. On the Media Matters list of "various commentators who engage in this sort of language" not a single liberal is mentioned.

#18 At least someone on the left called out the hypocrisy.

Democrat Kirsten Powers had the balls to call out Leftist pigs.

#19 She's no fluke,

she's just a fake. She's a long-time "reproductive rights" activist. This is why the Damnocrats on Issa's committee had her "testify" at a meeting of their subcommittee (it was not even a real hearing). The whole thing was a put-on stunt by the Damns to try to keep the focus on birth control instead of the real issue: federal overreach.

Rush was right, both in what he said and in issuing an apology. Though everything he said was true, the presentation was a bit coarse.

Of course, you'll never hear "Ms. Fluke" and all her leftist co-conspirators apologize for purposely lying and engaging in prevaricative publicity stunts. No, that would be way beyond the capabilities of their moral compass.

"Beauty is only skin deep, but liberal's to the bone." - me

#20 I'll go one step farther.

This Professional Activist was "hired" to testify for congressional record. And now she has been "hired" to go on tour.This whole episode exemplifies how women's groups lead the charge for Liberal causes and quietly release token objections to Conservative causes.

#21 Oh, and does anyone suspect a

Oh, and does anyone suspect a link between her plug for Media Matters, and the recent dirty business about them digging up dirt on the folks at Fox News? Could this be part of it?

#22 The guy rachel maddows twin

Is Rachel maddow this girls father?? She looks just like that guy. Oh wait a minute. I am sure The guy rachel would of used a condom!!!

#23 Rush Limbaugh

While I don't agree with Rushs' "slut" word, one must understand the absolute passion Mr. Limbaugh has about the conservative and our quest to keep our country from completely going over the brink.

Ms Flukes speech and comments after are orchestrated by the extreme left. They insult our intelligence. When we have the VP of our country standing for all the world to see and hear, "this is a big f-ing deal"? How dare the left call for civil discourse!

99.9 percent of the time Rush is a complete gentleman. If you don't like him, don't listen to him. But you have to ask yourself, the period Rush grew up and myself, women who not only practiced promiscuity, but demanded their contraceptives be paid by tax dollars were sluts. Nevada ring a bell?

#24 I'm still puzzeling on what

I'm still puzzeling on what it says about a single woman who needs $3,000 on birth control in Law School.
Actually, I think the question answers itself.

#25 obviously she's a SLUT AND A

obviously she's a SLUT AND A PROSTITUTE...

and i don't accept her rejection of Rush's apology

fortunately she's irrelevant now - does anyone really sympthize with a $3000 a month contraception habit? does anyone actually believe it? no way

Congratulations Jimmy Carter!

#26 Let me be the first to post....

....that Fluke's habit was not $3,000 per month. Pretty sure that's what it was $3,000 per day!

I'm curious, do you know of any situations in which birth control alone could save a woman from losing an ovary? This is a new one to me.

#30 I just listened to her 12 minute "testimony"

A local talk radio show that follows Rush just played her 12 minute "testimony". It's nothing but, "a friend of mine this", and "a woman I know that", and "a student who attends". It's nothing but made up pap.

#31 PCOS comes to mind, though I defer to Strat.

I have not done any serious GYN work since my training, so I defer to Strat for further explanation beyond what I will provide here.

Although I am not convinced that it is a cure-all, low-dose estrogen/progesterone (or synthetics) oral contraceptives are frequently used for treatment.

I believe the lower-dose estrogen/progesterone combination oral contraceptives are available generically, though I don't prescribe them.

We use oral contraceptives in some very unusual cases of resistant depression in post-menopausal women and in some cases for other mood disorders. The documentation on these types of cases is difficult, as prescribing an oral contraceptive for a 55 year old woman sometimes creates a question in the dispensing pharmacist's mind.

#32 Doc Sam

Thanks, I doubt her "friend" was post menopausal. I'm not sure why a pharmacist would question the pill for a 55 y/o woman when every once in a while we hear about a 60 y/o woman taking fertility drugs and giving birth.

It's a mad mad world.

#33 Fluke the Fake!

A liberal plant that was not allowed to speak in front of the committee because she was not properly vetted...........so what do the Dems do? Put on a separate "Dog and Pony" show to allow Fluke to spew her agenda driven nonsense. She is then "outed" as a plant with an agenda, and continues to play the victim part. Hey lady, your a PHONY!!! I truly believe Rush was apologizing for allowing himself to be brought down to their level.............He was NOT apologizing to Fluke the Fake, so I could care less if she excepts it or not!

#34 Rush's Big Mistake

Rush lost the high ground and his comments allowed his opponents to shift the argument from the outright fabrication and nonsense of Fluke's "testimony". From time-to-time, my wife gets involved in email arguments with friends of hers. She will usually ask for my assistance in areas such as composition and grammar, as she wants to make her points clear and precise. Inevitability , I will get into an argument with her that she shouldn't get in the gutter and she shouldn't try to score "snark" points as that will just giver her friends something to argue against, as opposed to the actual points she is trying to make.

Most of the time, my wife relents and leaves out the snarky comments and name calling.  Sometimes, she just can't resist, and leaves them in her responses.  Sure enough, the response she gets back is never about the original point, but only about the snark.

#35 This woman is not a slut or a

This woman is not a slut or a whore. Women like her were everywhere in my college days and the only thing we ever called them was 'easy' and 'often'.

In my case I seldom had to pay them with anything more than an undeserved boost to their ego.

#37 I hope she doesn't have to miss too much more 'class time.'

Since she's a 'student' and all.

#38 And given the quality of her "argumentation" skills

I'd say she REALLY NEEDS MORE class time than the average law student.

I'd still like to know why she hasn't been asked why her private sex life is the public's business and responsibility.

What a pap smear!

That's just my opinion; I could be wrong. -- Dennis Miller

#39 Why accept Rush's apology?

It might dim the limelight, and it keeps her victimhood status intact.

She neglected to mention that although taxpayer and government weren't be asked to pay for her birth control, a religious institution was being asked to do, against their beliefs.

She is contemptible.

#40 Lower Life Form

Another leech living off the federal government and other people’s money to be a career student. I know the type, they apply for every grant and scholarship they can and scam the colleges to pay for them to attend class, and as long as they take minimum classes and keep a C+ average they can have someone else pay. Like most leftists they don’t ever plan on paying back any grants or loans they get and will even claim physical disabilities to keep from being held accountable.

Anyone that is 30 years old and still in school should be a teacher, or an employee.

Scumbag is the label I would give her.

Then he needs to rescind the apology, if she doesn't want to be civil so be it. At least he offered.

#42 I'm surprised she has time to

I'm surprised she has time to appear on The View since she seems to be jumping from bed to bed with the frequency of a ham radio operator.

#43 She won't accept the apology?

#44 Fluck

Since she's all about women's rights I well remember her loudly criticizing Letterman for his ugly comments about Sarah Palin's young daughter.

#45 Of course she didn't accept

Of course she didn't accept the apology. She does not want this thing to go away. She learned that from Laura Ingraham when she accepted Ed's apology. The thing is, the press allowed that to go away whether Ed apologized or not.

Here's the irony. Fluke could have actually taken the high road and accepted Rush's apology and STILL not have it go away (which she wants) because the liberal press will keep it alive.

Fluke doesn't believe in the lib's power to keep her crusade going. She made the wrong choice.

Wonder if there's a trend there? Just sayin'!

#46 Talking points

Did anyone else get a chill when she said "Let me be clear?" Now we know what lines Obama fed her. And Rush's apology is the only free thing she's gonna get from this side of the aisle. Actually, I'd be happy to spend $5 on her and send her a big old Mahatma Rushie poster that she can tack to her ceiling, if she finds him so awful, it sure would be and easy way to put her off her feed, and "out of the mood", so she wouldn't have to worry about the horrible high cost of contraceptives............that being said, I'm a BIG Rush fan, and although I hated the idea of his apology, I understood his rationale and sentiments after listening to him today. And, I think some of his former advertisers, just took a big step down the road to lower profits. Doesn't capitalism suck?/s

#59 I thought Rush did very well on his show.

I was sure to catch the beginning of the show today, he went way further and tweaked the left some more while doing it.
Quick to realize it would remain the lead story with the msm help forever if he did not end it as quick as possible. Thought it showed class......something not seen anywhere on the left !

#60 Flake

This political hack/slut would never have accepted Rush's apology and I am upset that he even offered it. The trouble with our country is that liberals are never wrong-what debt, there's no debt. Flake is a left wing nutjob and has a background of far left activity. She is a 30 year old obnoxious bitch-pity the poor man that marries her, he will have a life of living in hell.

#61 Rush blew this

Under no circumstances should Rush Limbaugh have apologized to this far left clandestine operative who believe she could divert the attention of a nation towards herself alone. But if we really examine this closely we'll found that Mr. Limbaugh is responsible for all the "exclusive" airtime this brothel agent is getting.

Mr. Limbaugh shouldn't have mentioned her name at all and the apology he issued, apparently to save his advertisers, ended up doing enormous damage to his persona. Now this rat is going all over the place saying she won't accept Rush's apology. The more she continues to castigate Rush the more media microphones she gets. The more she'll be hoping on smilling to the bank as soon as her next NYT bestseller deal is signed.

There's no real news media anymore, what we now have, on both sides of the Atlantic, are bunch of ardent leftists camouflagging as professional news broadcasters.

Looking from outside the United States, Nigeria, I can see media has done more damage to America over the past 20 years than Al Qaeda could ever achieve in 100 years. And all odds points to the fact that they're just warming up.

#63 media

Correct! When you think about it you have to wonder why in an election year everyone has their panties in a knot over contraception. Wait a minute! Could it be that they are diverting attention away from a lousy economy and a failed presidency?

#64 can we take bets

Miss Fluke will have a major speech at the Democratic nation convention in Charlotte. Somewhere after Hillary and before Biden. Maybe even in the staples center to lead in Obama with the Greek columns behind.

#65 Bull. She is lying.

Fluke: "This regulation covers private insurance and it wants to have this type of medical drug treated in a way that's similar to how other medical drugs are treated and it is health care. Women need this medication to prevent seizures, to prevent cysts from growing on their ovaries."

90% of insurance plans already cover prescription contraceptives. And that would be for all reasons.

This is about Uncle Sam playing around at the margins to get the number to 100%. One big issue, the religious organizations are there at the margins.

#66 ~That woman is so full of it

Yeah, it's a little-known secret that the female body is so freakin' defective that unless you pump it full of extra hormones you're going to swallow your tongue and grow a second head on your inner lady parts.

OMO, is there anyone dumb enough to believe this crap?

#67 I suggest boycotting the advertisers that boycotted Rush's show

I did not see the uproar coming from advertisers when a conservative female was being bashed by the liberal media and their minion followers. Where were they back when Sara Palin, Bristol Palin, Tripp Palin and Michele Bachman were being ridiculed by the MSNBC, HBO bubble heads? I for one, will not consider purchasing any products from these advertisers as I know now what side they are on. These advertisers caved in because they were flodded with emails and messages on twitter accounts; how do they now if these emails came from their customers? This whole mess with contraceptives, religion and government is nothing more that "community organizing" strategy being implemented by the Democrats to distract the public from the real issues here, and unfortunately, Rush Limbaugh fell for it.

#68 I agree with you...

There are more of us than them...Dittoheads......CHARGE!

T.S.

#69 One more hen added to the "Hen House", oops, the View!

#70 ⇒ Who cares?

So she won't accept an apology, but she will demand money from me for sex?

I'll simply say she ain't no lady.

#71 Probably............

and my advice to her would be: "Fluke off".

"Someday a real rain will come and wash all this scum off the streets". - Robert DeNiro, Taxi Driver (1976).

#72 Rush should have been exposing political conspiracy

from the first day he got his first radio station. Now he's on the ropes over a silly thing like this.

Rush should arrange to get an Archbishop on his show to discuss contraceptives and the church's doctrine on why it leads to more sin and graver consequences. Rush should also rush to get Ron or Rand and ask them to explain the unconstitutionality of funding the giveway program of contraceptives based on the clear writing of the Founders..

We don't expect liberals to understand either of those reasonable positions. But maybe we can persuade conservatives like Santorum not to vote for liberal programs that use taxpayer dollars to redistribute to Planned Parenthood?

We don't expect PP any time soon to see the light that it is immoral to steal money from taxpayers that are Catholic to subsidize the free of charge handout of pills to girls and boys putting to practice what they have been taught in Sex Ed class: to enjoy their sex life since it won't cost them a single penny!

The kids have learned that money grows on trees and BC pills grow in cabbage patches.

#73 Two words:

"Big shock."

Go away now, Ms. Fluke. You've had your 15 minutes because Rush mentioned you, not for anything you said or did. You are the one who is going to have to live with the fact that you are little more than a DNC prop, not Rush, and not any of us who don't buy a word you say. All in your bid to re-elect your Messiah, since he can't run on his, you know, record.

And BTW, you can buy your birth control at Walmart for like $9 a month. Drive through, please.

#74 Never fear the Calvary of New Advertisers is coming to EIB

Never fear the Calvary of New Advertisers is coming to Rush's aid and if at all possible we intend to be there to support him. There is no one who can command the size audience Rush has and this is just one little gnat on a Mammoth's ass, and so I want to thank all of the PUSSY advertisers, like AOL, Pro Flowers and others who in the face of the enemy displayed their cowardice. Where were they when the left attacked and called Sarah Palin a C-word, or Condi Rice a Uncle Tom....
So, I say thanks for opening up the space on the Best Show on Talk Radio...We won't miss you and oh, boycotting all of you.

T.S.

#75 Pardon me.....

#77 Rad79 - Liberalism. Truly A Mental Disorder.

What's amazing is, I read his/her post (above) and besides the P- word in caps and a few a- words, I kind of thought, "Well, okay, but he's on our side" and it's not that bad...

Well, ya' know why I'm desensitized? Because I've been hanging out at facebook way too much having at it directly with gutter filth liberals. I mean, SERIOUSLY, it's grotesque, the vile world they live in. There's a reason I'm a staunch conservative and "right winger" the more I try and "hang" with them or engage with them on the smallest level.

A little (and frightening) ditty to share with you all, to further emphasize the culture we are up against. I went at it with a smug lib who called me a "moron" before we finished our first exchange, on a Rush/Fluke thread, and I let the curious cat get the better of me and went to his wall. What I found was a link to (***WARNING: THIS IS DEEPLY OFFENSIVE & DISTURBING***) this, and with him and his buddies heaping praise on it for being a wonderful slice of brilliant humor. He had other assorted sundry "funnies" on his wall, like progressive t-shirts with the V word and cutting open a uterus on them.

I'm sick to death of all this faux outrage from these feminazis. It's an embarassment to all the REAL women of America who aren't afraid of men.

#102 What would an adult do?

Since she is only 30 going on 23 she doesn't know what is being an adult means. An adult would just accept the apology and move on, but she is a liberal and not an adult, so she can't do that.

#103 A Dem Stooge

Looks like the left finally got their "macaca" moment with Sandra Fluke. What Rush called her was probably tame compared to what she really is.

Times must have changed. When I went to college, the only "healthcare" we had as students was the local clinic for your basic illnesses. I don't recall it being an insurance plan that afforded me full care. That was taken care of my by my parent's policy and, of course, I was well under the age of 31.

Can't afford birth control pills? Give me a break. Someone should have called her a liar too for that $3000.00 figure she gave.

#104 I realized just

how hypocritical liberal women were when they chose to trash all of the women who were exploited in one way or another by Slick Willy. They had gone to bat for Anita Hill and now they exposed their hypocrisy by blowing off what happened to Paula Jones, Juanita Brodderick and the others. I've been watching liberal women very closely since then and have determined that the only women they will defend are liberal women.

#105 Ms. Fluke

What people do in life rather than what they say is a true indicator of character.
Sure Mr. Limbaugh messed up but lowering himself to the language one would expect from Bill Mayer.

Ms. Fluke's refusal to accept the Mr. Limbaugh's efforts to make amends is an indication of her character.

It must be nice that she feels that she has never offended anyone in her life and never will make such a mistake.

Then again I guess we cannot expect too much - she is obviously a progressive/democrat.

All the indoctrination, sorry education, in the world will not fix that.

The object of life is not to be on the side of the majority but to escape finding oneself in the ranks of the insane.” – Marcus Aurelius

#106 Rush had it all wrong...

... Fluke's not a slut or a prostitute, she's a media whore. And a pig. Oink oink.

"If you want to make a Conservative angry, tell him a lie. If you want to make a Liberal angry, tell him the truth." - Rush Limbaugh

#107 Fluke IS a prostitute

And it has nothing to do with her sex life.


#108 Double Standards - Trademark of Liberals

Limbaugh made a bad joke with the analogy and was right to apologize.

However, if a woman insists on having casual sex with different partners so often that she needs someone else to provide birth control and abortions, it's a good bet she's sexually irresponsible and quite possibly, a living the alternative lifestyle of a slut.

Secondly, where were all these hypocrite liberal whiners when:

Letterman called Sarah Palin a slut.

Ed Schultz called Laura Ingraham a slut.

Jerry Brown's campaign referred to Meg Whitman a whore.

Bill Maher called Sarah Palin a dumb twat, a slut, and a cunt.

Chris Matthews called Sarah Palin a "mail-order bride"

Ed Schultz (challenging Limbaugh to a debate): "C'mon, you fat pig. Let's get it on. I'm getting ratings without you..."

Democratic Senator Al Franken of Minnesota peddled a book entitled Rush Limbaugh is a Big, Fat, Stupid Idiot, viciously ridiculing a person struggling with obesity and deafness.

In 2007, White House Press Secretary Tony Snow announced his cancer had returned. Commentators on the left-wing Daily Kos website remarked, "the world would be better off without him".

Liberal talk radio host Mike Malloy lashed out at conservative commentator Glenn Beck, a recovering alcoholic, told his radio audience "I have good news to report. Glenn Beck appears closer to suicide. I'm hoping that he does it on camera....given his alcoholism and his tendencies towards self-destruction, I am only hoping that when Glenn Beck does put a gun to his head and pulls the trigger, that it’s on television, because somebody will capture it on YouTube and it will be the most popular little piece of video for months."

Alec Baldwin called Cheney "a lying, thieving Oil Whore." During the Clinton impeachment, he said: “If we were living in another country, what we, all of us together, would do is go down to Washington and stone (Republican Congressman) Henry Hyde to death, stone him to death, stone him to death! Then we would go to their house and we’d kill the family, kill the children."
