Tonight, breitbart.com cub reporter Ben Shapiro is outraged and flabbergasted that TIME Magazine plans to honor women’s rights advocate Sandra Fluke: TIME HONORS SANDRA FLUKE AS ‘PERSON OF THE YEAR’ FINALIST!
After calling Ms Fluke a “contraception advocate extraordinaire” and a “condom rights advocate,” Shapiro pretends to be completely innocent of any “war on women” type stuff.
Fluke, of course, is the condom rights advocate turned Georgetown Law School martyr who testified before Congress about the hardships encountered by young female law school students who couldn’t afford to pay for their own birth control pills. Rush Limbaugh ripped her, prompting faux outcry from the left, all the way up to President Obama, who seized on the incident as proof that the right was waging some sort of war on women, as opposed to a battle against pathetic dependency on government.
A “faux outcry from the left?” Yeah, what would ever give anyone the impression that the right has a GIGANTIC problem with women’s rights?
Well, for starters, Sandra Fluke is a perfect example — she testified about a women’s health issue and was promptly demonized in the most graphic and vulgar terms by the right, starting with Rush Limbaugh repeatedly calling her a slut on air, and now continued by sleazy hacks like Ben Shapiro.
The caveman commenters of breitbart.com then proceed to make it even clearer that there’s something deeply wrong with the right, making a mockery of Shapiro’s disingenuous disavowal and jumping right into that good ol’ slut-shaming.
The V stands for an obvious body part that she likes to push. No wonder this country is in the shape it is in. These folks are paraded in Barak Husein’s world.
Good grief! This is exactly something that Time would do. For the rest of us, she’s just Floozie of the Year.
Just spread your legs and ask for free contraception and you too can get nominated for “Person of the year”…..How about “Slut of the year” ?
I’m going to be near Georgetown campus next week. Does anyone know how much Fluke charges for a hand job?
Nothing. Covered under Obamacare.
I think they meant to say whore of the year……….What next, aborted fetus of the year? These people are sick!
I think she rather hot.
Maybe Playboy will ask her to do a spread?
The foldout probably isn’t wide enough for that!!!!!!!!!
They could do it in installments, one acre at a time.
They must have a catagory of HARLOT OF THE YEAR, huh?????
You’re thinking of Jane Fonda, Fluke is nominated in either “tramp” or “slut” I think, she’s called herself both though so she could be after both categories.
Ladies and gentlemen, I give you the American conservative movement.
Somehow I missed this one when it came out a few days ago, but if you fancy this cow, make it now.
Of course it was already blazingly obvious, but today the Palm Beach Post reports that former Florida Gov. Charlie Crist says new early voting regulations were specifically designed by the Republican Party to suppress Democratic votes.
A new Florida law that contributed to long voter lines and caused some to abandon voting altogether was intentionally designed by Florida GOP staff and consultants to inhibit Democratic voters, former GOP officials and current GOP consultants have told The Palm Beach Post.
Republican leaders said in proposing the law that it was meant to save money and fight voter fraud. But a former GOP chairman and former Gov. Charlie Crist, both of whom have been ousted from the party, now say that fraud concerns were advanced only as subterfuge for the law’s main purpose: GOP victory.
Crist said party leaders approached him during his 2007-2011 gubernatorial term about changing early voting, in an effort to suppress Democrat turnout. Crist is now at odds with the GOP, since abandoning the party to run for U.S. Senate as an independent in 2010. He is rumored to be planning another run for governor, as a Democrat.
Crist said in a telephone interview this month that he did not recall conversations about early voting specifically targeting black voters “but it looked to me like that was what was being suggested. And I didn’t want them to go there at all.”
About inhibiting minority voters, [Former Republican Party of Florida Chairman] Greer said:
“The sad thing about that is yes, there is prejudice and racism in the party but the real prevailing thought is that they don’t think minorities will ever vote Republican,” he said.
“It’s not really a broad-based racist issue. It’s simply that the Republican Party gave up a long time ago ever believing that anything they did would get minorities to vote for them.”
But a GOP consultant who asked to remain anonymous out of fear of retribution said black voters were a concern. “I know that the cutting out of the Sunday before Election Day was one of their targets only because that’s a big day when the black churches organize themselves,” he said.
GOP spokesman [Brian] Burgess discounted Crist’s statement to The Post.
“Charlie Crist speaks out of both sides of his mouth,” he said.

A classic moment today, as Pulitzer Prize-winning defense reporter Thomas E. Ricks took the fight to the epicenter of right wing propaganda, Fox News, and told anchor man Jon Scott that Fox is “operating as a wing of the Republican Party.”
When Ricks pointed out that Fox News never seemed to care one bit about the many civilian contractors killed in Iraq, Jon Scott cut the interview short. Notice that Scott has no idea how many contractors died.

Thomas E. Ricks, the veteran defense reporter and author, said he expected his Monday morning appearance on Fox News to last about three minutes. It ended, in fact, after 90 seconds — his last sentence was a description of the network as “a wing of the Republican Party.”
After the interview, a Fox News staffer told Mr. Ricks that he had been rude.
The strange and unusually short interview segment quickly gained the attention of media critics, because criticism of Fox News is rarely aired on Fox News. Mr. Ricks said in an e-mail message afterward that he did not think he was being rude. “I thought I was being honest,” he said. “They asked my opinion, and I gave it.”
