Rush Limbaugh Calls Birth Control Advocate a Whore

Illustration for article titled Rush Limbaugh Calls Birth Control Advocate a Whore

The talking butthole that replaced Rush Limbaugh's face decades ago is making sounds again. This time, the sounds are about Sandra Fluke, the Georgetown Law student who was denied the right to testify before a Congressional committee about the necessity of employer-provided birth control. In short, Limbaugh thinks she's a whore. And if you agree with her, so are you.


On his show today, Limbaugh let his listening audience of impotent shut ins know exactly what he thought about women like Fluke who echo the opinion of medical experts in thinking that universal birth control availability is important. He said,

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.

First of all, it's Sandra.

Second, having employer-provided health insurance cover a medical cost does not amount to being paid to receive medical treatment. I'm sure, for example, that Rush Limbaugh's insurance plan paid for the time his shriveled black heart seized up in his chest. Does that mean that he was paid to have a heart attack? Is Rush Limbaugh some sort of bizarre heart attack slut spreading his aorta for any insurance plan that comes along? Of course not; Rush Limbaugh is a loud idiot radio trol who sounds like his mouth is halfway buried in a trough when he's talking. He's far from a heart attack whore. Implying that insurance is the same as getting paid for something is almost as absurd as the fact that so few people have pointed out that Rush Limbaugh is a dead ringer for serial killing clown John Wayne Gacy.

Limbaugh should be embarrassed that he, a grown man, is unaware that hormonal contraceptives are a fixed cost that doesn't fluctuate according to how many time per month women get laid. Birth control is not like a car wash where an only slightly dirty car pays $9.99 for a basic wash and a very dirty car pays $39.99 for a Deluxe Executive Super Wash & Wax.

At the end of the day, this isn't worth getting upset over; it's just another ignorant ejaculation from radio's most famous dickhead. Thank goodness I'm on birth control, or I'd be pregnant with rage.

So this is related and maybe you guys can give me advice. While at work, I spend part of my day in a cubicle. Every afternoon, a man who sits directly on the other side of the little flimsy wall listens to Rush Limbaugh at a loud volume. The radio show deeply offends me, to the point I get flushed and angry and can't concentrate on my work. My workplace in general is pretty sympathetic to conservative politics, and I worry that if I complain I'm going to be labeled a crybaby or something stupid like that. I've been struggling with it for awhile and stuff like this just makes it worse.
