Sandra Fluke, a social justice advocate and campaign surrogate for Democratic President Barack Obama, speaks in Reno on Saturday.

Sandra Fluke, the woman at the center of a media firestorm earlier this year after Rush Limbaugh called her a “slut,” spoke Saturday in front of about 10 people at the Sak ‘N Save in north Reno.

Thank You!

That was the best belly laugh I’ve had in quite a while.

Back in my bartending days I used to draw bigger crowds for my “Sense of Humor” monologues.

It's funny, actually. Obama and his people fooled by a perennial ‘student’ self-promoting wanna politico!

She filled a contemporaneous talking point need and they mistakenly took her worth to be long term. She's nothing but a hustler in the most griftable sense.

In truth, she is and was ‘so five minutes ago’ and now Obama and Company are stuck with the outcome. A pitiful excuse for ‘womanhood’ who is as devious as her current benefactors.

Glad you found a way to post this, I tried last night but RGJ is banned here and I couldn’t find it elsewhere.

What a hoot! This witch (or slut, if you prefer), draws a crowd of 10, and 10 years ago, Sarah Palin was drawing crowds of 10,000.

Sometimes all they have to do is show up for US to win!

PS to Sandra: better get ready to start buying your own pills, sweetheart

In front of Sak-n-Save? Where you bag your own groceries?
And she wants others to provide free sacs for jacks?

No wonder only ten people were amused, they were probably all men waiting to be one of the 3000.

Where people taking the pictures of her face or something else.....snicker, snicker,......

Sorry just couldn't resist. Sandra is such a joke and apparently she it completely unaware of it......however, she has a very bright future in Code Pink as a walking "va J-J" without a suit.

It was only 4 years ago....and she drew far larger crowds than that.

I laugh at how they always include "slut" when her name is mentioned.
They keep reminding everyone what she is. Does she introduce herself as,
"Hi I'm Sandra Fluke, I'm not a Slut"?

With a crowd this small, we should have been able to get an exact count of how many people attended.

It shouldn’t be lost on anyone that the banner she gave her talk in front of was hung off of a Jeep Cherokee (the XJ, not to be confused with a Grand Cherokee).

XJs were one of the top vehicles (maybe even the top vehicle) taken off the road by “Cash for Clunkers”. I have one (1996 four door with Selec-Track and the straight six powerplant) and have been meaning to get “I Survived Cash for Clunkers” bumpersticker to put on it. Along with an upside down “If You Can Read This, Please Flip Me Over” one.

Anyways, I know a good number of former Cherokee owners who did the Cash for Clunkers thing, and at this point seriously regret having done so. XJs are pretty hard to kill. Unless of course you’re pouring a chemical nightmare designed to blow up the engines down their throats.

Ya mean that crowd of 10 wasn’t there for the speech, but was there hoping to get lucky? :-)

It’s hard to do without the facial expressions.

But try to imagine Steve Landesberg telling such existential jokes as:

Q - Why did the monkey fall out of the tree?

A - It was dead.

And on, and on, without so much as a hint of a smirk - total deadpan. After about three or four of those, I would have people spitting out drinks through their noses.

When Steyn talks of Dim momentum, I picute a flushed toilet with the water moving faster and faster as it circles the bowl on the way to the sewer...

It would be a great campaign commercial. (Remember Christine O'Donnell?)

"Hi, I'm Sandra Fluke. I'm not a slut."

Republicans want to talk about the cost of energy and food, the unemployment rate, and national security. The Democrat females want to talk about their vaginas.

If you look closely at the twitter picture linked in the article, she left an empty parking space next to the bannered car for the crowd to stand in. She over-estimated her star power because the crowd did not fill the empty space.

The ten people she addressed were actually standing in line waiting to microwave their burritos.

Isn’t PROSTITUTION legal in RENO?

Reno, Sandra Fluke, snicker, snicker...””’

Close, but no cigar—but maybe we can set Fluke up with Bill Clinton & his cigars...

Reno is in Washoe County. Storey County is next door- to the east. About 16 miles. Prostitution is legal in Storey County. Actually, Storey County is the smallest Nevada county & the income from the brothels in taxes, etc, fills 1/2 of needs annually for Storey County.

Most of the brothels are back off the main roads, and to my knowledge of living in Nevada for 7 ++ years, they re not a particular problem. I am pretty sure they have their own bouncers & don’t have many internal problems.

Meanwhile, Storey County in general and Virginia City in partucular, benefit from the revenue. If you nave never been to Virginia City, it is truly a great place to spend a day. Every time I watch a re-run of Bonanza, I see parts of Virginia City which are still there today.

“This witch (or slut, if you prefer), .....”

Since Sandra Fluke is clearly both, what does that make her?

A slutch? A slitch? A wutch?

Have you ever tried out for a comedy act on stage or anything? I love that type of stuff and it is a rare gift to be able to pull it off.
