That may seem cruel, but to call Rush-To-The-Pharmacy Limbaugh a right wing attack dog would be an insult to dogs. Even junk yard dogs. For years, Limbaugh has made millions from his vitriolic attacks on liberals. But this past week he unleashed his disgusting mouth on a new target: Women.
Following Sandra Flukes testimony before an unofficial Congressional committee (Teapublicans refused to let her, or any other woman, testify before the official committee hearing) on the medical need for contraceptives, he chose to label the 30-year-old college student a slut and a prostitute. He asserted that the reason she needed her insurance company to pay for contraception is that shes having so much sex she couldnt afford to pay for contraception herself. He then offered to buy aspirin for every female college student in Georgetown to place between their knees as a form of birth control.
A few days later, he continued to attack Fluke by saying “If we’re going to pay for your contraceptives and thus pay for you to have sex, we want something for it. We want you to post the videos online so we can all watch.”
So, in addition to being a well-known drug addict, he must also be a pervert. Could it be that hes trying to cover up his own sexual inadequacies? Or is he simply angry that few women would want this Jabba The Hut impersonator to climb on top of them?
Update: The furor over Limbaugh’s comments have resulted in the loss of numerous sponsors for his radio show. And the reaction has become so intense, for the first time in memory, he posted an apology for his “choice of words” on his website. But it seems to be much too little too late. Advertisers continue to disassociate themselves from Rush. And women have turned on the GOP.
