The utterly disgusting Rush Limbaugh today, on Sandra Fluke (and if you think this is some sick joke, here’s the transcript posted on Limbaugh’s site):
“Folks, if you ask ‘em — if you ask ‘em — the Washington, DC, Department of Health will send you free condoms and lube. The DC Department of Health free condoms and lube if you just ask ‘em for it! So Ms. Fluke and the rest of you feminazis, here’s the deal: If we are going to pay for your contraceptives and thus pay for you to have sex, we want something for it. And I’ll tell you what it is. We want you to post the videos online so we can all watch….So if we’re gonna sit here, and if we’re gonna have to be part of this, then we want something in return, Ms. Fluke: And that would be the videos of all this sex posted online so we can see what we are getting for our money.”
“Who bought your condoms in junior high? Who bought your condoms in the sixth grade? Or your contraception. Who bought your contraceptive pills in high school?”
“Millions of women enjoy sex in the back of a car. Yet some women can’t afford a car. What are we to do? What is our solution to women who prefer sex in the backseat of a car but can’t afford a car? Now, I’ve run some numbers here. Did you notice in that sound bite — was it Sheila Jackson Lee or Maria Cantwell or one of ‘em, talked about the strength, the strength, that Sandra Fluke had to go before Congress. Which is amazing. She was having so much sex it’s amazing she could still walk. Yet she still made it up there.”
If Limbaugh hasn’t gone too far this time, then “too far” no longer exists. Those Republican politicians who have genuflected to Limbaugh in the past — do any of them have daughters? Wives? Sisters? Mothers?
Will any of them dare to raise their voice in protest or disgust? Because again, if this is not going too far, what is?
