The Dems May Have Miscalculated on Ms. Fluke
Powerline ^ | March 9, 2012 | John Hinderaker

Posted on 03/10/2012 8:29:16 PM PST by 2ndDivisionVet

The Democrats thought they had a great distraction from the economic issues that bedevil most Americans in the form of 30-year-old activist Sandra Fluke. Rush Limbaugh foolishly (as he later acknowledged) called her a “slut” and a “prostitute” in the course of ridiculing, entirely properly, her very silly claim that the federal government should force all employers to pay for their female employees’ contraception–I never did figure out whether the plan extended to buying male employees condoms and vasectomies–regardless of whether either the employers or employees prefer such benefits to cash compensation. Ms. Fluke’s theory, really, was so stupid as to be a ripe target for ridicule.

The Democrats went crazy in the aftermath of Rush’s error, posturing themselves as the upholders of civility. Barack Obama got into the act, calling Ms. Fluke to congratulate her on her demand for free goods and services, and to ask how her delicate psyche was a holding up. Obama later explained that he did it for his daughters, Sasha and Malia, whom he would never want to hear coarse language.

Well. There was a basic problem with the Democrats’ strategy; namely, that pretty much everyone knows that when a Democrat talks about a Republican woman, “slut” or “prostitute” would be considered a compliment. So it was no surprise when conservatives pointed out that Bill Maher, who contributed $1 million to Obama’s re-election campaign, has called Sarah Palin a “c***” and a “dumb t***,” along with other, sometimes worse, epithets. When asked about Maher’s disgusting attacks, President’s Obama’s press secretary explained that Obama is not a speech policeman. So evidently Sasha and Malia will have to hear some crude talk after all–from Democrats, anyway.

Of course, Bill Maher is just one of many. Democrats, in general, are cruder and more vitriolic than Republicans. So it didn’t take more than 24 hours or so for Greta van Susteren to point out that someone named Louis C.K.–it is highly unlikely that you have heard of him–was scheduled to host the 68th Annual Radio & Television Congressional Correspondents Dinner on June 8. Those correspondents, of course, are some of the very people who had been excoriating Limbaugh for calling Ms. Fluke a “slut.” CNN’s Jay McMichael headed the committee that was in charge of the program:

“We’re very excited about having Louis C.K. at the dinner,” said Jay McMichael of CNN, who chairs the RTCA’s executive committee. “This is an evening you’ll want to experience. We’re shaking things up, showcasing the unexpected, and delivering lots of laughs.”

Lots of laughs, indeed: Mr. C.K., it turns out, is foul-mouthed even for a Democrat. Ms. van Susteren collected some of his comments about Sarah Palin. Feel free to skip ahead if you have a weak stomach or are easily offended:

Louis C.K. says of Palin: “her f*** retard making c***” and “the baby that just came out of her f**** disgusting c***.”

To Palin: just “stick your t** in its mouth and shut up.”

And here is more: ”…her f***** retard making c****”.

Need more to convince you? Here is what he says on twitter:

“I want to rub my father’s c*** all over Sarah Palin’s fat t***”

By the way, there is more, lots more.

That, however, is plenty. Even for a liberal, Mr. C.K. is disgusting.

So tonight Glenn Reynolds reported that the Congressional Correspondents (Democrats all, no doubt) have decided to forgo the pleasure of hearing Sarah Palin’s c*** and t*** ridiculed, along with her young son–how funny is that!–and have discreetly canceled Mr. C.K.’s appearance.

This civility thing could be tough on the Democrats. What are they going to do for entertainment?

fluke also coauthored an article saying that sex change operations should be payed for by tax payers as well.
Now I think we all agree that sex change operations should indeed be paid for by tax payers. However the problem I see arising is what if after a few months that person decides he or she doesn’t like their new sex and wants to change back.
Therefore I think we need to stipulate that tax payers will only pay for one sex change per year.

They should do it based on odd and even years, just like the Carter years of Gas Rationing.
Even years, innies to outties. Odd years, outties to innies.
Dear Kickass,
You know I’m here trying to be helpful and all I get are a bunch of smart-ass remarks.

“She never claimed she was spending that much.”

She said “we students have faced financial, emotional, and medical burdens as a result”. We means ‘we’, not ‘they’.

She said, “Without insurance coverage, contraception can cost a woman over $3,000 during law school. For a lot of students who, like me, are on public interest scholarships, that’s practically an entire summer’s salary.”

That certainly implies that she has experienced that cost.

She said, “We can only answer that we expected women to be treated equally, to not have our school create untenable burdens that impede our academic success. We expected that our schools would live up to the Jesuit creed of cura personalis, to care for the whole person, by meeting all of our medical needs. We expected that when we told our universities of the problems this policy created for students, they would help us.”

Again, we means we. It means she feels her school “create[s] untenable burdens that impede our academic success.”

Any fair reading of her testimony would be either that she is exaggerating her involvement as much as she is exaggerating the costs, or that she was saying that she had also shared in these burdens imposed by her school...

She said that’s what it would cost, not that she personally spent that much.

If I remember correctly, Rush never actually called her a slut, he said someone could call her one.


Conservatives should be accurate.

So should liberals, but we all know they won't, and I for one, am tired of getting the short end of the political stick because conservatives don't seem to understand they're fighting an enemy that has no moral standard.

Which, IMHO, was pretty much the point Rush was trying to make with his unapologetic 'apology'.

Shame on any fellow Catholics who voted for Barack Hussein Obama. Is there anything more evil than murdering a baby who survived an abortion?

It’s a little different. When a prostitute takes money from a complete stranger for sex, the man also participates in the sex. Sandra Fluke is demanding money from complete strangers for sex, but the people paying are not participating in the sex. In other words, hookers are more honest than liberal activists.

Conservatives are for more ready to fight liberals, and be as dirty as liberals to do it

I wish this was as true with Republican Party leaders as it is with the base.

I know Obama’s media surrogates called members of the tea party teabaggers, but I wasn’t aware he used the term itself. Are you certain?

I appreciate your hard work. I'm with you all the way.

Just trying to keep everybody currently living in Obamaville smiling. There is hope outside the wire.
