Rush Limbaugh Calls Georgetown Law Student a ‘Slut’ and ‘Prostitute’
Female law student Sandra Fluke, who was prevented from testifying at Darrell Issa’s anti-birth control hearing recently, spoke to a Democrat-sponsored hearing last week about the importance of reproductive health care for women, and the cost of contraception coverage.
Her testimony has provoked some shockingly ugly hatred from right wingers; for example, this unbelievably crazy piece we wrote about yesterday: Right Wing Jaw-Dropper: ‘Sex-Crazed Co-Eds Going Broke Buying Birth Control’.
Rush Limbaugh, the true leader of the right, takes it another step into the gutter today, calling Fluke a “slut” and a “prostitute.”
LIMBAUGH: What does it say about the college coed 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. She wants to be paid to have sex.
She’s having so much sex she can’t afford the contraception. She wants you and me and the taxpayers to pay her to have sex. What does that make us? We’re the pimps.
The johns, that’s right. We would be the johns — no! We’re not the johns. Well — yeah, that’s right. Pimp’s not the right word.
OK, so, she’s not a slut. She’s round-heeled. I take it back.
