Rush Limbaugh is a Dirty Slut

Limbaugh will say anything, and I mean anything, so long as his comments stir up controversy and thus his bank roll. He is literally no different than a prostitute on the street corner. His sensual appeal is not his body (Lord knows that), but rather his demagoguery;  his victims are not weak-willed men but instead weak-minded True Patriots.

The misfortune is that Limbaugh's point about the Georgetown student is valid. The government should not be funding contraceptives. Every conservative should be making that point. But instead of debating the issues, we are talking about Rush's rhetoric about a young girl that has a different political perspective.

Which is fine with Rush, because he is a prostitute. As long as the money is still green, Rush will continue to strut his stuff.

And he will likely continue to strut his stuff in the future, because conservatives don't have the guts to stand up to him.

The girl chose to go to a congressional committee and testify about her sex life. Did she not think she would be ridiculed for it? She chose to put herself out there, so she also chose to subject herself to criticism. If she is too sensitive to be criticized, then she should have stayed home.

Pablo, old chap, I think you're missing the point. This woman is a sexual addict. You & I are enabling her in her addiction to sex by paying for her birth control. From both a woman's healthcare issue (mental) & a political issue (gov't free stuff) it is more than valid to raise it. He may not frame it in the right way, but it's insulting to everyone. Would you like to pay for someone else's alcohol, pot, or drug lifestyle?

Pablo said...

Lionhead,

Carefully read my second paragraph again.

Lionhead said...

Pablo, I did, then we do agree on this issue. As for Rush, he's an entertainer, radio talker & now a sweet tea salesman. You 'vote' everyday if you decide to listen to him or buy his products or services. He has a right to make a legitimate living. You could posit the same for Mitt in his position with Bain Capital. Is he a prostitute or predator in that business model? In the Olympics, was he a prostitute for taking money from the Gov't? I think not.

As for me, I'm in agreement with Ron Paul on the contraception issue:

Today in my commute I heard that Rush Limbaugh had called this woman a prostitute because she held a different view on contraception..that is the media will spin this..and Rush probably knew that and did not care..After all he is more than happy to set his hair on fire to get attention, after all his ratings are down.

However, it does not help conservatives to have Rush saying stupid stuff like this..he could make his point without calling that young woman a whore. Now conservatives, who may not like the idea of government paying for contraception but who think contraception is acceptable..will be accused of being busy body hypocrites.

Rush is not helping anyone but himself here..and I am sure that when Obama made this an issue in the first place, he was counting on people like Rick Santorum and Rush Limbaugh to attack contraception in general terms and totally ignore the larger issue...the larger issue is one of a power grab by the government.

Terrye said...

In fact, Rush said he wanted her to post videos of herself having sex on line so that the rest of us could watch...

That is just stupid.

Was the Olympics for the whole United States? Countries typically for the Olympics all over the world. The wonder is, after all the corruption before Mitt took over the Olympics that the government did not pay for the whole thing.

newark hawk said...

Rush Limbaugh: 4 wives, no kids.

I wonder how many abortions he's paid for.

Just sayin'.

Terrye said...

No one had any problem with the Olympics getting federal dollars..the only people making an issue of it now are desperate Santorum supporters.

Once again Limbaugh proves he's a gift to Obama this election cycle. Front page of the NYTIMES is now running the story of Obama's call to the law student whom Limbaugh smeared. BUSINESS INSIDER reports that several Limbaugh advertisers are pulling their ads or are inundated with complaints. Limbaugh's verbal intemperance is giving the Dems another free pass to win women voters. He could have approached the First Amendment issue in a way that would NOT have given red meat to the media and the Dems, but he chose not to. It's all about him. Fine. But let's not be fooled for a minute that he cares about the GOP's winning ANY races in Nov 2012.

Terrye nailed it! Rush is out for Rush, but calling the woman a slut, a prostitute, and saying we should be able to see videos of her having sex on the web because we are paying for it is plain stupid.

Rush messed up here but will never admit it because people are listening again, something they wisely stopped doing with El Gordo/Rushbo a long time ago.

The Olympics have been a public-private enterprise for decades - long before Romney's tenure at the 2002 Salt Lake City Games.

In the wake of 9/11, the 2002 Games had extra security costs, for which Romney properly obtained extra public funding.

It's beyond silly to criticize Romney for simply doing his job as CEO of the 2002 Olympic Games.

It reminds me of the old SNL week-end roundup with Jane Curtin and Dan Akroyd. Jane would present something and Dan would reply something along the lines of, "Jane, you ignorant slut", and go on to rebut what she said.

Mumacita said...

Vulgarity from DEMs or REPs is still slime. But from a conservative, for me its evidence that he or she just isn't that much into a "What would Jesus do" kind of life. 7-8 years ago I spoke with Rush on the radio. I told him I really wanted to be able to listen to him and for my kids to do likewise, but he was too nasty day in and day out. He was so riled up by my request to stop being vulgar, that he locked up my vocal cords in his special lock box reserved for parts of Hillary Clinton. So I don't listen him anymore. He is no different than the late night chatter that passes as entertainment.
And I am voting for Romney because I want a person who understands civility because he lives his life that way. I don't want a bomb thrower who incites the base with red meat or a celebrity who thrives on rarified air and is given a pass by the media.

Anon., Terrye & newark hawk, I see you guys are definitely not doing your homework & research. Pablo has opened the door tonight for some "Romney Ramblings" that will be used this fall. Buckle up ladies & gentlemen as the Emperor Obamus has now opened the Hippodrome in which "Flippus-Floppus Romneus" will fight off the attacks of various gladiators & wild beasts. And remember citizens, no one leaves the Hippodrome alive.

Let's begin with the piece de resistance, the Olympics. Fitting isn't it now we've entered the Hippodrome. "2002 Romney touted that he knew how to get money out of the federal government." This shows that not only the man's hair is on fire, but his toga as well. Liar, liar, toga on fire!

http://www.therightscoop.com/2002-romney-touted-that-he-knew-how-to-get-money-out-of-the-federal-government/

Your gonna love the video & transcript. Called out once again by Emperor Obamus....

On to his signature achievment as Gov. of Massachusetts, Romneus Maximus Care. Enter the world of close combat in the revolving spin platform invented by the Emperor to confuse & daze opponents & spectators alike. Is it real, illusion, perception, confusion? Off we go. "Romney 2009: Obama should look to our mandate in Massachusetts in crafting his plan." Why, yes, it's a conservative plan after all, yet Flippus-Floppus Romneus attacks his opponents on single payer plans, but boosts his plan as the best in the category. Brilliant Flippus-Floppus Romneus!! Sit back on your comfortable bench & watch the magic unfold in front of your eyes. Then you can catch the re-runs this fall.

http://hotair.com/archives/2012/03/02/romney-2009-obama-should-follow-our-mandate-example-in-massachusetts-in-crafting-his-plan/

Finally, a tribute to Flippus-Floppus Romneus, from the crowd, in his never ending wavering on any subject under the sun:

"Take a stand. Choose something and take a stand that surprises people. Stand up to your base on one thing. Show that you have a spine. Because right now you are a jellyfish. People laugh at you. Your father told people where to get off constantly. For whatever psychological reason, you decided to be his opposite. Your choice. But if this race goes the way it looks as if it’s going to go, you will not only lose, but you will go down in history as a punch line. Your name will become a verb, and not a flattering one."

"How Mitt Romney Missed His Moment on Contraception" Indeed he did, as well as tens of other issues. Massachusetts Conservative, said:
"I love this headline being the first thing I see when I go to the Right Speak home page. This article should be pinned at the top of this site forever." I agree MC & I'll be adding to it as time goes on. Let's see how far down Bosman can bury this tonight to minimize the readers.

Stay tuned folks to the big blowout on Super Tuesday; the Emperor will have special treats for all Flippus-Floppus Romneus supporters. It will be under your benches.

Sandra Fluke’s Appearance Is No Fluke

For me the interesting part of the story is the ever-evolving “coed”. I put that in quotes because in the beginning she was described as a Georgetown law student. It was then revealed that prior to attending Georgetown she was an active women’s right advocate. In one of her first interviews she is quoted as talking about how she reviewed Georgetown’s insurance policy prior to committing to attend, and seeing that it didn’t cover contraceptive services, she decided to attend with the express purpose of battling this policy. During this time, she was described as a 23-year-old coed. Magically, at the same time Congress is debating the forced coverage of contraception, she appears and is even brought to Capitol Hill to testify. This morning, in an interview with Matt Lauer on the Today show, it was revealed that she is 30 years old, NOT the 23 that had been reported all along.

In other words, folks, you are being played. She has been an activist all along and the Dems were just waiting for the appropriate time to play her.

While she is described as a “third year law student” they always fail to mention that she is also the past president of Law Students for Reproductive Justice.

July 30 2011

Does your campus’s LSRJ chapter face opposition in regard to facilitating a comprehensive conversation about reproductive justice? Well mine definitely does! While my campus has a mix of people with different backgrounds, and a rich liberal arts community, the Midwest doesn’t exactly scream bleeding liberal. Some LSRJ chapters at conservative campuses face opposition in the form of other, more conservative, student run organizations; some face it from their administrations, and others from their peers, or the community in general. Whatever the opposition is, it can be incredibly frustrating and disheartening.

The question is, how do we combat this conservative opposition and oppression, in order to facilitate a discussion and educate others about the RJ movement? I am obviously not alone in facing these problems, as Sandra Fluke of Georgetown lead a packed room in a discussion on this question at the first Issue Caucus that I attended at the Leadership Institute, LSRJ’s national conference at Berkeley.

While no solution was definitively reached, and I personally don’t begin to have the “right” answer, I was really charged by the discussion and feel many great ideas were presented. Some campus chapters decided to take an adversarial approach, feeling it important to use those “scary” words the opposition fears.

Further background research on Ms Fluke reveals that she got her start in government in New York in 2009.

....Sandra Fluke’s professional background in domestic violence and human trafficking began with Sanctuary for Families in New York City. There, she launched the agency’s pilot Program Evaluation Initiative. While at Sanctuary, she co-founded the New York Statewide Coalition for Fair Access to Family Court, which after a twenty-year stalemate, successfully advocated for legislation granting access to civil orders of protection for unmarried victims of domestic violence, including LGBTQ victims and teens. Sandra was also a member of the Manhattan Borough President’s Taskforce on Domestic Violence and numerous other New York City and New York State coalitions that successfully advocated for policy improvements impacting victims of domestic violence.

As the 2010 recipient of the Women Lawyers Association of Los Angeles Fran Kandel Public Interest Grant, she researched, wrote, and produced an instructional film on how to apply for a domestic violence restraining order in pro per. She has also interned with the Coalition to Abolish Slavery & Trafficking; Polaris Project; Neighborhood Legal Services of Los Angeles County; Break the Cycle; the Domestic Violence Legal Empowerment and Appeals Project; NOW Legal Defense and Education Fund; Crime Victim and Sexual Assault Services; and the Human Services Coalition of Tompkins County.

Through Georgetown’s clinic programs, Sandra has proposed legislation based on fact-finding in Kenya regarding child trafficking for domestic work, and has represented victims of domestic violence in protection order cases. Sandra is the Development Editor of the Journal of Gender and the Law, and served as the President of Law Students for Reproductive Justice, and the Vice President of the Women’s Legal Alliance. In her first year, she also co-founded a campus committee addressing human trafficking. Cornell University awarded her a B. S. in Policy Analysis & Management, as well as Feminist, Gender, & Sexuality Studies in 2003.........

After all the lies Rush has told about Romney... I'm not inclined to defend his stupid talk. He is the worst of American... and his 15 minutes is up.

We can do better than this guy as a spokesman for our side.

Lionhead said...

Graham, I'm just the messenger of Truth here. No more, no less. Flippus-Floppus Romneus has now been proven a liar. His remarks are on tape. I don't have to persuade anyone; the facts speak for themselves. What gauls me is how he has betrayed himself, his family, his party, his Nation. If you want to have a person like that as your President, Good Luck sir!

Rush needs to be smacked once in a while. He MUST know this kind of talk harms more than helps the Republicans. He MUST know how this was going to play out in the media--against Republicans. He MUST just not care!

Anonymous said...

Rush is an idiot. He has endlessly pointed out that the contraception discussion is a set up to get the Republicans off topic about the economy and jobs, and then he steps into the same trap he has been warning Republicans about. It seems to me that he needs to untie the other half of his brain that he claims to have tied behind his back.

@ Lionhead

It's obvious that Romney doesn't pass your conservative purity test.

And neither would Ronald Reagan, who at one time or another was pro-abortion, pro-amnesty, pro-union, pro-deficit spending, pro-tax increases and pro-Democratic Party.

If conservative purity is what you're looking for, then Ron Paul should be your guy.

Good luck winning the GOP race & presidency on that horse. You're gonna need it.
