What do leftists and the Taliban have in common? When you acquiesce to their demands for an apology, they just step up their attacks. Rush Limbaugh found that out over the weekend. With advertisers fleeing the show over bogus stories that he called all women who take birth control “sluts” (he didn’t), Rush capitulated over the weekend and apologized to Sandra Fluke. Now, according to a NYT article, his enemies are stepping up their campaign.
So what did Rush actually say? I listened to his broadcast. And he said that if you want someone to pay for you to have sex (i.e. pay for your birth control), that makes you a slut and/or a prostitute. Does that make him anti-female? No. It makes him a bad comedian.
As a conservative, I don’t want to pay for some college co-ed’s birth control. If Sandra Fluke can find a way to pay Georgetown University $60k/year for tuition, room, and board, she can pay for her own damn pills, which cost less per month than cable TV. I wouldn’t call her a slut, but I would call her demands shameless.
