Rep. Joe Walsh: Sandra Fluke, You’re 31, ‘Get A Job’
Mediaite ^ | September 8, 2012 | Laura Donovan

Posted on 09/08/2012 3:41:14 PM PDT by rightwingintelligentsia

It’s been quite a year for Georgetown University Law graduate Sandra Fluke, who fell into the spotlight after conservative commentator Rush Limbaugh called her a “slut” in February. The 31-year-old also spoke at the DNC this week, and Rep. Joe Walsh is not impressed. The Republican politician said during a Saturday campaign stop that Fluke needs to just “get a job” already.

--snip--

“So at the Democratic Convention Wednesday night their first prime time speaker was Sandra Fluke, whatever her name is. Think about this, a 31-32 year old law student who has been a student for life, who gets up there in front of a national audience and tells the American people, ‘I want America to pay for my contraceptives.’ You’re kidding me. Go get a job. Go get a job, Sandra Fluke.”

After a round of applause, Walsh continued, “I was offended. We’ve got Americans who are struggling…to buy sneakers that their kids can wear to school…We’ve got parents up and down my district who are barely keeping their house. And and and…we have to be confronted by a woman. The Democratic party, this is what they stand for. They’re going to put a woman in front of us, who is complaining that the country, you me and you, won’t pay the nine dollars a month for her contraceptives. How crazy is this? In a way it’s not her fault because we teach people this stuff…’Don’t worry, government will take care of you.’ We are raising these Sandra Flukes of the world who are raising Americans who don’t know how to take care of themselves. This a woman who feels entitled that we all should pay for her contraceptives,” he said. “This is what we are teaching Americans? That was embarrassing. That was embarrassing.”

“I got a dorm room, don’t know the price
Got lots of posters, it’s very nice,
I go with boyfriends, bang on the walls,
I have rich parents, who pay for it all,
They say I’m crazy, but I have a good time
I’m just looking for pills at the scene of the crime,
Life’s been good to me so far....

Fluke has a job. She has been a political operative for the White House before the public heard of her.

She could go to San Diego and work the fleet, since most swabbies aren’t too particular.

She’s got a full time job... I’m sure that she’s getting paid by one of the multiple Dem think thanks or lobby groups (you know, like Acorn). What do you think she was planning on doing with her Georgetown law degree? Work for a living?

I think she’s one of those “professional students” and moonlights as a DNC shill. She’ll be infesting a college campus somewhere for the rest of her life. Work is something that she intends to never do.

It’s parody lyrics for Joe Walsh’s “Life’s Been Good to Me So Far”. (The other Joe Walsh who used to be in The Eagles, not the Congressman.)

I thought so but that also sounds similar to some POS called “All I Want To Do” by Sheryl Crow. (she probably stole it)

"...Sandra Fluke, who fell into the spotlight after conservative commentator Rush Limbaugh called her a “slut”..."

No. She allowed herself to be paraded into the spotlight by dems holding a make-believe committee hearing. Limbaugh may have given her more exposure than she ever would have otherwise received, but he's not the one who put her name in the public venue. As long as it was the national networks putting her in their spotlight, she had no problem with being a public figure.

Hero. After the Rush incident, attacking Fluke has been toxic, but Joe nails her to the wall with no mercy.

“Get a job, Sandra! Oh, wait. Thanks to your choice for president, there are no jobs.”

"Life's Been Good", Joe Walsh, 1978 from the soundtrack of the movie "FM".

With a little artistic license thrown in.

Your post implies that being an unmarried woman is a bad thing.

Fluke's boyfriend's father is a billionaire. She has a job ~ we just don't understand that kind of job.

She's obviously a converted dude ~ and all her crowd are into GBLT events and schedules.

Imho, she’s a spinster in the sense that unmarried men in their 40s and beyond were once considered bachelors. It’s an antiquated term that is a euphemism for something else entirely.

In retrospect, skank would've been the better term for Rush to use. Using the more invective slut only gave this common skank power.

I believe that is Tammy “Thank God for food stamps” Duckworth he is running against. Tammy Baldwin is running for the Senate in Wisconsin against Tommy Thompson.
