Smoke and mirrors.
We had the announcement yesterday that it is now acceptable to kill Americans on the whim of the government.
In the meantime, the left-wing self-described “main stream” media is all in an uproar because Rush Limbaugh categorized a lady as a slut.
Ms. Fluke testified before Congress about the huge imposition that it is on the lives of students to have to pay for the birth control when the university health plan restricts the birth control to those that need it for medical or health purposes rather than give it to everybody. She brought up the example of a friend that ostensibly needed it for her polycystic ovary syndrome that she said was unjustly denied free medicine. The university health service thought this friend was trying to get free birth control since her medical symptoms apparently didn’t actually call for hormonal therapy. Everyone is rallying to this righteous fresh-faced 23-year-old and her brave stand for women who only want what is medically necessary.
Except she’s not the reported 23. And she’s not just a struggling student. She’s a 30-year-old hard-core activist and the former president of Law Students for Reproductive “Justice”, which I guess means tax-payer funded birth control. She’s a lib-prog plant.
But it IS an election year, so Presbo phoned her to make sure she was holding up under the assault by that evil Rush. Guess he was a little too busy when Sharon Angle got pilloried on The View. Or when Sarah Palin was called a dumb twit, a bimbo, a whore. To my knowledge, Ms. Palin does not sleep around or advocate it. Since, if she did, it would have been headlining on Chris Matthews. But Ms. Fluke is a fan of the president and needed a boost. As did Presbo’s ratings.
Now Howard Stern (not a liberal) calls nearly every woman a slut. Nary a peep out of the media. Misogyny is ok. Rush, who may be guilty of truth in labeling, not so much. And some sponsors quit him. I think they should have. He had no business abandoning principles and apologizing.
