Reading Rush: Silly Women, You're All Prostitutes

When attempting to listen to Rush Limbaugh on the radio do you find yourself slamming your head into the steering wheel repeatedly until blood is streaming down your face while the other drivers in traffic look on in horror? Well, he's worse when you can actually read a transcript of what he's saying.

For some crazy reason women and stupid liberals got upset at something Limbaugh said:
Oh, yeah, I'm gonna deal with this. I'm gonna deal with it. I think this is hilarious. Absolutely hilarious. The left has been thrown into an outright conniption fit! This is "phony soldiers" times ten. Oh, ten times worse than phony soldiers. The reaction that they are having to what I said yesterday about Susan Fluke -- or Sandra Fluke, whatever her name is -- the Georgetown student who 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. I said, "Well, what would you call someone who wants us to pay for her to have sex? What would you call that woman? You'd call 'em a slut, a prostitute or whatever."
 And of course, it wouldn't be Rush if he didn't double down on the offensive by channeling Foster Freis:
The headline: "Sex-Crazed Co-Eds Going Broke Buying Birth Control, Student Tells Pelosi Hearing Touting Freebie Mandate -- A Georgetown co-ed told Rep. Nancy Pelosi’s hearing that the women in her law school program are having so much sex that they’re going broke, so you and I should pay for their birth control." Cybercast News Service. So what would you call that? So I called it what it is. And, bam, boy, you nail these people with the truth! So I'm offering a compromise today. I will buy all of the women at Georgetown University as much aspirin to put between their knees as they want. Well, here's the thing about that. Where are all these guys?
Or a jab at Bill Clinton:
Is it any wonder, Clinton wanted to go to this law school and why Hillary went to Wellesley? Is it any wonder? Where are the guys here? Do they not have a role here? We assume they're having sex with guys.
I'll skip the section where he discusses lesbians, and instead focus on him saying women shouldn't be responsible for birth control, it should be the men.  Because why would a women ever want to be in control of her own reproductive health:
So it means there are men involved and that would mean there's some responsibility on the part of the men. Do they not have condoms? Why don't these women go ask the men to buy them contraception? Why go before a congressional committee and demand that all of us -- because they want to have sex any time, as many times and as often as they want, with as many partners as they want -- should pay for it? Whatever, no limits on this. I mean, they're going broke having to buy contraception! They're getting back-alley pills, folks. That's what this leads up to.
 Now this next part I have trouble deciding of Rush Limbaugh is an idiot who doesn't understand how the pill works, or if he just assumes his listeners are and wants to encourage that so he can call women sluts:
Georgetown law student Sandra Fluke said that it’s too expensive to have sex in law school without mandated insurance coverage. Apparently, four out of every ten co-eds are having so much sex that it's hard to make ends meet if they have to pay for their own contraception, Fluke's research shows." And of course what's sex if the ends aren't meeting? 
But Fluke presented research to the committee: four out of every ten co-eds are having so much sex that it's hard to make ends meet if they have to pay for their own contraception. Have you heard of anything more ridiculous? This is flat-out thievery. It's outright ridiculous that taxpayers should pay for the personal sexual desires and habits of everybody, including women, at Georgetown Law. Fluke reported: "Forty percent of the female students at Georgetown Law reported to us that they struggled financially as a result of this policy (Georgetown student insurance not covering contraception)." The poor babes have to buy their own pills. What has gone wrong with our country? What has happened to our country where law students have to buy their own contraceptives? What has happened to us, folks? What have we done with our hearts? How did we become so cruel?
 Now just in case you don't realize that the pill is a prescription drug you have to take every day regardless of whether they're having sex at all.  Fun Fact: covering birth control works out as a wash for insurance companies because over the lifetime of a woman, it's still infinitely cheaper for the insurance company than a single unplanned pregnancy:
Where do you think the insurance companies forced to cover this cost get the money to pay for these co-eds to have sex? It comes from health care insurance premiums that everybody else pays. There isn't anything free. "'For a lot of students, like me, who are on public interest scholarships, that’s practically an entire summer’s salary,' she complains." A thousand dollars, $3,000, practically an entire summer salary that they now have to spend on sex. So she earns enough money in just one summer to pay for three full years of sex, and they're full years because she and her co-ed classmates are having sex nearly three times a day for three years straight, apparently.
Just a reminder, if Rush Limbaugh had decided to get his viagra legally, it would have been covered by his insurance and we all would have subsidized him being able to have sex:
Okay, so this is a law student at a congressional committee asking for us ... to ... pay ... for ... the ... things ... that ... make ... it ... possible ... for ... her ... to ... have ... sex. 
Therefore we are paying her to have sex. 
Therefore we are paying her for having sex. 
We are getting screwed even though we don't meet her personally! 
What would you call this?
 And of course the logical reason not to implement a cost savings plan that gives women the ability to control their own bodies is:
You know, folks, millions of women enjoy sex in the back of a car. You have some women that can't afford a car. What are we to do? What is our solution to women who prefer sex in the backseat of a car but can't afford a car? I've run some numbers here. Did you notice in that sound bite Sheila Jackson Lee or Maria Cantwell or one of them talked about the strength that Sandra Fluke had to go before Congress, which is amazing. She's having so much sex it's amazing she can still walk, but she made it up there. It takes a lot of courage to ask for something free, folks. Takes a lot of strength to ask for freebies, doesn't it?
Now, if you're a sane, mature human being you realize that people in their 20s have sex.  That in fact it is normal, natural, and healthy for people to have sex, and so maybe we should take steps to make that safe and affordable.  Or you can be Rush Limbaugh:
This is a matter of personal choice. It's an elective activity, or is it? Maybe they're sex addicts. I mean this is the kind of stuff, we're talking sex addict frequency here. But that's a good point, why us? See, that's why this is so instructive, folks. For all the hilarity here, and there's plenty of it, the microcosm contained in this entire episode tells us everything about who we're up against.
 And now we know who we're up against.


  1. I'd like to comment, but I'm too mad at the moment. Rush Limbaugh is insane. What an idiot.

  2. I'm not going to lie, I skipped over a huge section comparing the cost of hormonal birth control to the cost of buying condoms in bulk because it was making me see red.
