As such, I write this post only to demonstrate how deliberately manipulative (and wantonly dickish) he is, having managed to convince right-wing assclowns like Patricia Heaton (who knew she was such an asshole?) that Fluke wanted birth control to have more sex, when in actuality she was relaying the story of a friend who needed birth control to manage a medical condition.
But whatever. Facts don’t matter because GIRLZ HAB BAJINAS LOL:
[O]n his radio show today, Limbaugh showed no remorse and instead reveled in the attention. Referring to Fluke, Limbaugh demanded that women post sex tapes online if they use insurance-covered birth control:
LIMBAUGH: So Miss 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. We want you post the videos online so we can all watch.
Limbaugh also said he found the outrage over his remarks “absolutely hilarious.” He again completely misrepresented Fluke’s testimony, saying, she “went before a Congressional committee and said she’s having so much sex she’s going broke buying contraceptives and wants us to buy them.” In fact, Fluke testimony was about a friend — who is gay — and needed contraception for medical reasons, but was denied coverage by Georgetown, a Catholic university.
He went on to say, “I will buy all of the women at Georgetown University as much Aspirin to put between their knees as they want” — a reference to Rick Santorum-backer Foster Friess’ home-spun idea of birth control.
I’m less irritated by Limbaugh’s comments (which are par for the course for him), and more irritated by the fact that he has planted a disgusting mental image in my brain — of his doughy hand gripping his tiny wang as he — BRAIN BLEACH.
I will say this: It is rather amusing to watch the nutbags alternatively crying about how liberals are celebrating Andrew Breitbart’s death and bemoaning the lack of civility while simultaneously slut-shaming Sandra Fluke. You can’t buy cognitive dissonance like that, y’all.
