On Florida campaign trail, Fluke seeks a new direction
The Palm Beach Post ^ | October 13, 2012 | David A. Fahrenthold

Posted on 10/13/2012 8:27:09 AM PDT by Brandonmark

Sandra Fluke watches her old speeches like game tape, studying her gestures and delivery. She practices her sound bites on Twitter, sharpening arguments down to 140 characters.

Fluke has also learned to tell “slut” jokes. Given the rest of her material, audiences could use a laugh.

“Contrary to some recent rumors,” she told a crowd in this beat-down beach town, where she is endorsing Patrick Murphy, a local Democrat, for Congress, “I don’t actually support just any guy who comes up to me.”

This, she hopes, is how you excel as a culture warrior.

Fluke became an election-year celebrity seven months ago - a law student made famous by a snub in Congress and an insult on the radio. Since then, she has been a walking, talking symbol of the nation’s polarized politics, caricatured either as an oversexed whiner or as a noble casualty of the “war on women.”

The latest proof of that came last weekend, in a debate between Comedy Central’s Jon Stewart and conservative Bill O’Reilly. In his opening statement, O’Reilly used Fluke as the face of a “slacker” culture sapping the country’s vitality: “The poster person for the entitlement society is Sandra Fluke,” he said, joking that he’d left a pack of birth-control pills at will-call for her. “Sandra! Buy. Your. Own.”

“A good portion of this country has created an alternate universe,” Stewart retorted. “In which the issues that we face revolve around a woman from Georgetown,” where Fluke attended law school.

Now, Fluke is campaigning hard for Democrats. But she’s also applying her perfectionist’s tendencies to one of the hardest tricks in politics: outlasting the political moment that created her political persona.

After nine months of talking about birth control, she says, “I want to talk about a lot of other things.”

Why this over-educated, over-sexed, over-indulgent clown merits a single column inch is beyond me. Paraphrasing Dennis Miller: Here lady, here’s $10. Go buy a box of condoms and knock yourself out.

In keeping with the obsenity censor here, I will just leave that portion of the headline, er the topic, to someone else.

She seeks a WHAT?!

Well, given that she demands free condoms, I would assume she seeks a new direction.

Look, this clown will be a footnote in history, going down as a nobody who knew nothing but got a lot of attention...kind of like Debbie Wasserman Schmuck.

"This “woman” is nauseating."

She is!

My mom is a retired science teacher but they saddled her with sex-education too. At first I thought it was horrible, but then I realized if kids were going to be required to take a sex-ed course my mom was the RIGHT kind of lady to teach it! She focused very heavily on the STD information and personal responsibility. She always said, "If you are mature enough to have sex with your boyfriend, then you are mature enough to always always make sure he has a condom. And if you are man enough to have sex with your girlfriend, then you are man enough to get your butt to a 7-11 and buy a condom!" Sandra would have totally failed my Mom's high school sex-ed class.

When JFK was elected; his party and himself stood for getting us into space, and for fighting Communism.

JFK had many deep flaws of course.

His Democrat party today is much closer in ideology to the Communist rebels he stood against; than to the party he was part of.

I doubt that a Sandra Fluke would have been associated with his party in his day.

Modern day Democrats need to realize their party is not acting in the best interests of this nations future. Their party has completely changed; and is an enemy of the United States in many cases.

I hope many of them will open their eyes in this election and vote for R and R.

FLUKE, OCCUPY OUTHOUSE, another in a series of BRILLIANT STRATEGIC POLITICAL MOVES by the REGIME. There’s little doubt why his CAMPAIGN has derailed and is heading over the cliff when you have ADVISERS like this involved.

"Fluke became an election-year celebrity seven months ago..."

Yeah, a celebrity in her own mind. Like all other attention whores, once she's not needed anymore, she'll be tossed away just like a used condom, and end up on the trash heap of history.

Golly, this “law student” sure spends a lot of time away from the classroom. How will she ever pass her mid-terms??

Can’t wait till this election is over so this rag can join Cindy Sheehan on the trash pile of used-up Democrat useful idiots.

A few days ago on one of these threads someone posted that Fluke is Stephanie Cutter’s lesbian lover. No “sarcasm” indicated. Is that true, or was it a joke? If true, what’s up with the condoms?
