A Nation of Sandra Flukes [Mark Steyn]
National Review ^ | 9/8/2012 | Mark Steyn

Posted on 09/08/2012 8:22:51 AM PDT by Servant of the Cross

According to Georgetown Law student Sandra Fluke, invited to address the Democratic convention and the nation, America faces a stark choice this November. “During this campaign, we’ve heard about two profoundly different futures that could await women in this country — and how one of those futures looks like an offensive, obsolete relic of our past,” she cautioned. “That future could become real.”

In one of those futures, women will be “shut out and silenced,” rape victims will be “victimized all over again,” pregnant women will “die preventable deaths in our emergency rooms,” and “access to birth control is controlled by people who will never use it.” If you’re wondering where all that is on your ballot form, just check the box marked “R.” (snip)...

Sandra Fluke is one of them. She completed her education a few weeks ago — at the age of 31, or Grade 25. Before going to Georgetown, she warmed up with a little light B.S. in Feminist, Gender, and Sexuality Studies from Cornell. She then studied law at one of the most prestigious institutions in the nation, where tuition costs 50 grand a year. The average starting salary for a Georgetown Law graduate is $160,000 per annum — first job, first paycheck.

So this is America’s best and brightest — or, at any rate, most expensively credentialed. Sandra Fluke has been blessed with a quarter-million dollars of elite education, and, on the evidence of Wednesday night, is entirely incapable of making a coherent argument. She has enjoyed the leisurely decade-long varsity once reserved for the minor sons of Mitteleuropean grand dukes, and she has concluded that the most urgent need facing the Brokest Nation in History is for someone else to pay for the contraception of 30-year-old children ...

Fluke is not the best and brightest. She is just another “julia” that wants women to be dependent on government for everything.

“access to birth control is controlled by people who will never use it.”

The argument using "women's right to choose" is naturally-endowed....keep your legs together and try being responsible for YOUR OWN CHOICES; don't FORCE OTHERS TO PAY FOR YOUR BEING A SLUT/TRAMP/TROLLOP/EASY-LAY/LOOSE/PARTY-GIRL.

In a sane world, there would not even be a “market” for Sandra Fluke's “education”. Of course, there really isn't. Whatever “job” she acquires will leach of producers.

A middle-school girl is free to get an abortion without parental consent, but if she puts a lemonade stand on her lawn she’ll be fined. What a bleak and reductive concept of “personal freedom.”

I quoted Mark Steyn in a tagline some time back and couldn't fit attribution in.... so, where ever you are Mark Steyn - I'm sorry ... plus I used the same quote in comments. My bad...

Not necessarily crazy. More like lazy.

e.g. believe the first thing stated on TV. They don’t realize they are reading a
script. They actually think the broadcasters are holding a rational,
fact based, thoughtful discussion

Freebie oriented - I want mine now

You owe me , even though I didn’t work for it.

This Steyn piece is probably the greatest single piece of political commentary I have ever read..

It is brilliant and perfectly worded for maximum comic effect and clarity..

The man is quite simply—— a genius.

I heard that she’s a tri-sexual - animal, vegetable, or mineral.

But what’s strange is that so many people don’t find it strange at all — that at a critical moment in the affairs of the republic the ruling party should assemble to listen to a complacent 31-year-old child of privilege peddling the lazy cobwebbed assumptions of myopic narcissism.

Fluke is not the best and brightest. She is just another “julia” that wants women to be dependent on government for everything.

Cindy Sheehan, redux.

But Cindy, at least, was arguing for one side of a valid issue.

Fluke is making an incoherent argument for one side of a non-issue.

And, once the election has been decided, either way, Fluke will end up where Cindy is -- forgotten and alone on the scrapheap of "women used to further the liberal agenda".

Dumb little bitch.

Fluke is the squeeze for Adam "Cutie Pants" Mutterperl, heir to the Mutterperl fortune.

All the election will decide is whether America wants to address that reality, or continue to live in delusion — like a nation staggering around with a giant condom rolled over its collective head.

That about sums it up.

But, as it stands right now, a Cornell and Georgetown graduate doesn't understand the central reality of the future her elders have bequeathed her. There's no "choice" in the matter. It's showing up whatever happens in November. All the election will decide is whether America wants to address that reality, or continue to live in delusion — like a nation staggering around with a giant condom rolled over its collective head.

A better, funnier, or grimly truthful assessment of our predicament I can't imagine.

I just watched her DNC speech, barely quelling an eruption of chunky vomit. It is easy to envision her soon in political office, in a district infected by a deep blue degenerate Rat electorate.

Here is part of one of the comments below the NR article:

-----------------------------------------------------

In her testimony to Congress, Sandra Fluke spoke about a fellow Georgetown law school student who lost an ovary due to her inability to pay for the birth control medicine she needed. This student was (conveniently) a lesbian who didn’t need the medicine for birth control. Fluke said another student was raped but thought that because GTLS didn’t cover birth control, she didn’t go to the doctor to be examined or tested for sexually transmitted diseases.

If we are to believe Flukes testimony, we have to believe that an elite law school like Georgetown produces female students that are so passive that when faced with the loss of an ovary, loss of fertility and early menopause they do – NOTHING. Raped? They do nothing, apparently not even reporting it. We now have elite law school students who are unable to read the schools policy and find out that they have exemptions for birth control medicine for non-birth control purposes and actually do something about it. If only they knew how to find a good lawyer. Oh wait!

...

My guess is that Fluke will never do a day of legal work in her life. I’m not sure what her fall back position is, but if this birth control gig fades, maybe she’s hoping that the Kardasian’s will adopt her. She would fit right in.

“During this campaign, we’ve heard about two profoundly different futures that could await women in this country — and how one of those futures looks like an offensive, obsolete relic of our past,” she cautioned. “That future could become real.”

When I heard her speak that sentence I had a vision of her future as a pillar of salt.
