I’ve been wanting to write something about this stupid Fluk/slut controversy but haven’t had the time. Luckily, Edge of the Sandbox did it for me!

Yes, his sponsors threatened to quit, but some did anyway.  More importantly, there was no moral imperative to do so because I doubt a modern woman like Ms. Fluke is insulted by Rush’s word choice.  And get this, our President who doesn’t want his daughter to be punished with a baby, called Sandra Fluke to see how she’s coping with Rush’s comments.  What a phony!

These day and age being accused of sleeping around — even for money — is not a big a deal.  “Slut” is simply a semi-rude word (we all can think of stronger expressions) for behavior that is not exactly unacceptable, and in some circles is even desirable.  In the era of 3rd wave feminism, when women are called sluts, they buy skimpy outfits and go on parades. Hence the Slutwalk phenomenon sweeping Europe and North America.

    After what the MSM left liberal loons have done to Sarah Palin, Michelle Bachman, Laura Ingram, Michelle Malkin – I totally agree with Rush – he called a spade a spade! Why should he apologize – the left pundit nuts don’t – Our president is as bad as them all. Bill Maher is one of the most dispicable people on TV – he is a very ugly man – in words and appearance.

  2. Many thanks for the reblog. I loved your attachment parenting post on PJ Media.

    I think what upset people is that Rush was saying that Fluke is going broke paying for her birth control because she was having that much sex and that’s why shes a slut. But birth control isn’t taken in proportion with how much sex you have, you could be having no sex and be using birth control for a medical reason and still take a pill a day. He was factually inaccurate and he made Fluke’s testimony about Fluke’s sex life when it was really about a friend of Fluke’s who used birth control as medication because she had problems with ovarian cysts.

    • I appreciate your response. First of all, Fluke said her personal budget for birth control was $3000. The pill only costs $9 a month at Target. That’s $108 a year. So we are to assume that Fluke is purchasing either condoms or other BC…If condoms, $3000 worth would be enough to have sex 5 times a day for an entire year. If she really needs $3000 to pay for her sex life she is either lying or the most sexually active person on the planet. His illustration of this absurdity was funny, not intentionally mean and within 5 seconds of calling her a “slut” he said, “ok, maybe she’s not a slut.” It was what Rush always does…illustrate absurdity with absurdity. It’s quite funny and effective.
