The minor detail he left out is that you donít need protection to masturbate, ergo the women must be having sex with someone who can potentially impregnate them ie: a man. But the women are the sluts and prostitutes.

Never mind the whole issue that women on the pill arenít all on it to prevent pregnancy.

Apparently he wasnít getting enough attention if heís resorting to this type of tactic. But yes, there are a LOT of people who listen to him and hang on every word he says.

Thats what I was just thinking, his ratings were either down or he thought he needed to stir some crap to deflect from something else, hence this pile of poo

ETA haha actually in this case he assumes she's promiscuous because she wants BC AND he figures she's a prostitute for thinking it should be state-funded:

I have to admit the "you're a prostitute for taking tax-payer funded BC" is a new one for me lol

That's the best part. This isn't even about state funded insurance. This is about PRIVATELY funded insurance that is subsidized by employers and usually comes out of the pocket of the person with the policy! Now we get the conservative masses upset that they are paying for this college student to have sex, and that isn't even what this is about.

Lies and spin, and people who don't bother to find out the truth are buying it.

The best part was that she wasn't even talking about herself, but about a friend who had had have an ovary removed, because she could not afford the hormonal contraceptive pills that are also how you treat PCOS, which her friend had, and the Catholic University refused to include those pills in the health insurance policy that it requires that students buy unless they have their own. (I work with a Georgetown law graduate . . . she filled me in that detail. They are required to have health insurance, and unless you are independently wealthy, you have to get the University's coverage to get good coverage, because its the only way to be on a large group plan. UVA, where I went to law school is the same way . . . everyone is on its health insurance, because you'd be crazy not to be. But UVA covers birth control. Enthusiastically. I don't remember if UVA requires health insurance however . . . Georgetown does) . Notably, Georgetown DOES cover the pills for its female employees; just not its students.

So, Ms. Fluke was talking about a friend who was unable to get needed medical care unrelated to her sex life, because the Catholic-associated university she attends is unwilling to cover the required medication for moral reasons, even though her need was not related to those moral reasons, which resulted in her friend having to have surgery to remove one of her ovaries. This is despite the fact that the university in question requires health coverage, and that, as a practical matter that health coverage has to be bought from the university, leaving someone who needs hormonal contraceptives for health reasons unrelated to sex pretty much screwed.

Then there is the fact that Rush seems to have no idea how birth control works . . . .

He's apologized by the way. For once. I somehow doubt its sincere since he kept pounding on that woman for three days. Its just that he finally said something so outrageous that others on the right felt the need to . . . very politely . . . say he shouldn't have said it. Oh, and he was opening himself to a slander suit.

That said, I actually didn't post this because after the LRA incident, I don't care what Rush says. He's a crazy person. I have decided not to be angry with him when he says crazy things in the way I am not angry with people who say that they are being mind controlled by the CIA through radio signals picked up by the fillings in their teeth. If I care what he says, it raises by blood pressure and makes my eyes hurt . . . so . . . I just don't care. He's crazy.
