[UPDATE-2 – Obama calls student] Rush Limbaugh calls female contraception hearing witness a slut.

Rush Limbaugh calls college student Sandra Fluke a "slut" for supporting birth control.

THE GUERRILLA ANGEL REPORT  — [UPDATE-2 – Obama calls student. See below.] We’ve come to expect trash from Rush — usually aimed at public figures — all for the purpose of lining his pocketbook with more money. This time however, Limbaugh unloaded on a Georgetown University law student, Sandra Fluke, who spoke in favor of birth control at a Democratic hearing on Obama’s contraception policy.

Limbaugh: “What does it say about the college co-ed Susan Fluke [sic] 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.”

I don’t know about you, but calling a kid in college a “slut” on the air to enable one to rake in even more dough than they would otherwise earn makes one a TRUE slut.

Congrats, Rush, on a new low. Enjoy the new boat you’re gonna buy with the money you earned calling a college kid a slut.

Excellence in Broadcasting indeed.

UPDATE-1 – March 2, 2012:

March 2 (Bloomberg) — President Barack Obama called a college student to offer her his support after radio commentator Rush Limbaugh attacked her for advocating health insurance coverage for contraception.

Limbaugh’s comments also drew a rebuke from Republican House Speaker John Boehner of Ohio.

Obama spoke with the student, Sandra Fluke, for several minutes, White House press secretary Jay Carney told reporters today.

“He wanted to offer his support to her,” Carney said, adding that Obama considers Limbaugh’s comments “reprehensible.” The president thanked Fluke for speaking out and expressed his disappointment that she was personally attacked, he said.

UPDATE-2 March 2, 2012: Sandra Fluke speaks out on Limbaugh’s comment about her: “Initially, you’re stunned, but then very quickly, you’re outraged, because this is historically the kind of language that is used to silence women, especially when women stand up and say that these are their reproductive health care needs and this is what they need,”

  1. A very ‘Rushed’ statement from a man with FOUR weddings and NO proof of CONSUMATION.

  2. Is there something rather penile about that big cigar? Limbaugh’s got a bit of a cheek putting a ‘sic’ after anybody’s family name.

  3. This is ridiculous, and she is totally right for not accepting that apology. There was no apology in there. Why? More than just the last three days he has been saying stuff like this to people, but in fact for years. He is only sorry his advertisements were pulled. http://tothecenter.com/2012/03/student-dismisses-rush-limbaugh-apology/ has it right when they discuss it.

  4. Thanks for your comments everyone!
