Mr. Limbaugh was harsh, especially since she could have a steady boyfriend as opposed to bed-hopping. However, Ms. Fluke's comments during her Congressional testimony did give a 'slutty' impression of herself and her classmates. Why do people think that taxpayers should be underwriting their sex lives? If you can afford that iPhone, you can afford to pay for your own damn condoms and birth control pills. Anyway, bookeristas weigh in:
|Sandra Fluke & Rush Limbaugh|
The moderate-conservative blogger in Maryland reminds us of Rush Limbaugh's Viagra scandal back in 2006 in the Dominican Republic, which is a hot spot for sex tourism: "Rush Limbaugh called a woman who said the government should fund women's contraceptives, a slut. I think the government needs to stay out of everyone's sexual concerns, but I find it interesting that the man who was caught with Viagra in his possession (which is legal), by a TSA agent, when Limbaugh was going to the Caribbean, is calling someone a slut. Especially when you consider the understated fact that there are Caribbean 'sex tours' that cater to American men."
MAYBE: Mr. Ref: "Her Request To America's Taxpayers Was More Foul Than Limbaugh's Comments"
The conservative in North Carolina tweets about the controversy: "Limbaugh's comment was perverse? Possibly. But the idea that I have to pay for others to have sex is even more perverse."
NO: Samuel Gonzalez: "Rush Limbaugh Vs. Sandra Fluke"
The conservative Republican blogger in New York writes: "She had the nerve to say with a straight face that she and her fellow law students are going broke buying contraception because they’re were having so much sex. Rush Limbaugh responded by calling her a 'slut' and it’s been a laugh riot ever since."
More commentary from Mr. Gonzalez: "Mama needs the country to pay for her contraception to get her sex on! Bear in mind that she can get free condoms from her local health department or Planned Parenthood. Access to contraception is easy but Democrats are once again playing the manipulations game with false templates to stir voters."
