Rush Limbaugh calls college student a 'slut'

http://now.msn.com/now/0229-limbaugh-calls-woman-a-slut.aspx

Rush Limbaugh today called a women's health advocate and Georgetown Law student a "slut." The Huffington Post transcribed Limbaugh's comments on Sandra Fluke, who'd spoken to a Democratic panel on the benefits of birth control: "[Fluke] testifies she's having so much sex she can't afford her own birth control pills, and she wants President Obama to provide them, or the Pope. ... What does it say about the college co-ed Susan [sic] 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? It makes her a prostitute." Limbaugh then corrected himself: "So she's not a slut. She's round-heeled." Round-heeled, for the record, means "slut."

That was no apology. Rush Limbaugh has shown himself to be a complete jerk over the years. He finally crossed the line when he attacked and lied about a woman who testified in front of Congress. The GOP should be really afraid of the women and men who have had enough of this vitriol against women.

>"In his apology Mr Limbaugh said that he was attempting to be "humorous" in expressing his opposition to the ruling."<

I couldn't find any humour in his remark not in any stretch of my imagination. Could you?
Both quotes from....

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-17248737

>""No woman's health should depend on who she is or where she works," President Obama said, announcing the policy change at the White House in February.
The adjustment to the policy would mean Americans would not have to choose between "religious liberty and basic fairness", he said."<

So, let's see if your case makes sense.

ANY woman that's not appalled by Rush's remarks, belongs with his ilk.

I had really hoped that we had evolved beyond calling women sluts as "humor." I know that if me and my husband went to a comedy club and an entertainer started calling women "ho's, sluts, whor'e, round heeled........, etc" we would get up and walk out. I remember putting on some old Saturday Night Lives that my husband had never seen and the whole "Jane you ignorant slut" thing came up and H asked me "Why is this supposed to be funny?" and turned it off.

The only reason Rush apologized, and I use this term loosely, is because his sponsers started pulling out and he HAD to. His sponsers pulled out because they were inundated by outraged women. Women make the purchasing decisions in the households and they were pissed! For three days he defended himself. He said things like "we want something for our money," "we want you to post sex tapes," and other derogatory statements directed

That is how they get around the prohibition as Catholic doctrine allows for "other" usage!

The attempt obviously failed. That a surprise? He has apologized.

I note the nasty comments referring to Mr. Limbaugh as slime or "complete jerk" by liberals here is a bit interesting as the thread is denouncing name calling by of course name calling.

Rush Limbaugh has proven himself to be a slime and complete jerk through the years by the vile things he has said about individuals who didn't do a single thing to deserve it. Rush richly deserves every bit of contempt that is being blown at him right now...every single little bit.

As for his "apology," even fourth graders would recognize the insincerity in that apology and realize that he didn't do because he meant it, but because he had to. Too bad it didn't work. ProFlowers and Carbonite have pulled their advertising despite the apology. Serves him right.
