Pelosi: Limbaugh's 'vicious attacks' on student uncivilized By Mike Lillis - 02/29/12 08:23 PM ET
House Democrats went after Rush Limbaugh Wednesday for his attacks on a university student who recently testified before Congress on women's reproductive health.
Limbaugh on Wednesday called Georgetown Law Center student Sandra Fluke a "slut" and a "prostitute" for her support of the Obama administration's new birth-control mandate.
Behind House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), the Democrats said Limbaugh's remarks were uncivilized and misogynistic. They're asking Republican leaders to denounce the popular conservative radio host.
Limbaugh's attacks, the Democrats said, "are outside the circle of civilized discussion and unmask the strong disrespect for women held by some in this country."
"We call upon the Republican leaders in the House to condemn these vicious attacks on Ms. Fluke, which are in response to her testimony to the Congress," they added.
Aside from Pelosi, Democratic Reps. Louise Slaughter (N.Y.), Rosa DeLauro (Conn.), Carolyn Maloney (N.Y.), Elijah Cummings (Md.) and Diana DeGette (Col.) as well as Del. Eleanor Holmes-Norton (D.C.) endorsed the message.
Fluke has become something of an unwitting celebrity on Capitol Hill this month after Republicans on the Oversight and Government Reform Committee denied the Democrats' request to have her testify on Obama's new birth control mandate. Chairman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) argued that the policy concerns religious freedom, not reproductive health.
Democrats pounced, hoping to portray the Republicans as out-of-touch with women's healthcare needs. To highlight the saga, Democratic leaders had Fluke discuss the issue last week before the House Democratic Steering and Policy Committee.
That testimony led Limbaugh to claim Wednesday that Fluke "wants to be paid to have sex."
"What does it say about the college co-ed Susan [sic] Fluke who goes before a congressional committee and essentially says that she must be paid to have sex? What does that make her?" Limbaugh asked. "It makes her a slut, right? It makes her a prostitute.
"She wants to be paid to have sex," he added. "Shes having so much sex she cant afford the contraception. She wants you and me and the taxpayers to pay her to have sex."
Pelosi and the Democrats are hoping such statements from conservatives will help them with Independent voters particularly women in November.
"Democrats will always stand up for womens health and womens voices, their statement concludes.
“”Shes having so much sex she cant afford the contraception. She wants you and me and the taxpayers to pay her to have sex.”
I’m sick and tired of being told to stay out of the left’s bedrooms when they dare me to step in by using MY money to have fun and games.
As usual Rush is right!! Someday, hopefully soon, a GOP president will honor him with the Presidential Medal of Freedom.
The left does this on every issue.
They first ask for mere tolerance of their “differences”,
they end up putting a gun in your face forcing you to participate.
Keep it up Rush and hit them back harder. You wouldn’t be catching flack if you were not over the target.
S.C. Senator Earnest Fritz Hollings statement from a few years ago, Theres too much consuming going on out there.
$9k per month? She must hang out with...
This is how it goes.. The late night comedians, Hollywood dbags, Bill Maher, et al can call Palin, Bachmann etc whores, skanks, and whatever they damn well please. With no pushback.
But a Republican satirist makes a valid point with a little humor and all hell breaks loose.
It’s funny how they always call Limbaugh an entertainer except when it suits their needs. Now he’s part of the Republican establishment.
Liberals are a cyst on society.
Maybe Nutsy Pelosi should organize a Slutwalk in protest of this.
do the democrats in DC have to apologize everytime Bill Maher makes a misogynist remark?
If a male of similar age and situation went before a congressional committee and claimed to be copulating with an average of 2.7 females per day he, first of all, would immediately be assumed a liar. But if he was thought credible, a'la Charlie Sheen, these same b****es who are jumping to this self proclaimed sperm receptacle's defense would call him an irresponsible sex addict and demand his incarceration and neutering.
Of course, if he claimed to be buggering that daily average of kids and adult males, then to them he's just exercising his civil sexual freedom and ought to be hired by the BSA as a scout master.
Exactly. But that’s how the Dems and the media work. They laugh then ignore Maher. But when Limbaugh says something they feign outrage and push story hard. It will be on the nightly newscasts, and a major story on Yahoo, AOL, and all the email portals.

Pretty sure that is a lie. I did not hear the Limbaugh show, but I read about it. I got the impression that Limbaugh’s criticism was based on the fact that this bimbo cited a very active sex life as a reason that Georgetown should be footing the bill for her birth control and abortifacients.
They aren’t much for basic logic are they?
“STAY OUT OF OUR BEDROOMS YOU NASTY JUDGY REPUBLICANS!!”
“YOU MUST FINANCE OUR SKANKINESS!!!”
Nancy Pelosi is a whore (in the DC sense) for inviting that ignorant girl to testify before Congress about prostitution and immorality. Woe until Ms. Pelosi and her ilk.

Post of the day!
similarly...Palin is expected to apologize for gun violence of which she had NOTHING to do with...but no one on the left is expected to apologize for leftist views that actually do lead to violence.
They just can’t handle the truth. Pathetic.
How much “free” access to contraception will women be allowed? It will be decided by the Obamacare sex panels unless of course it will be unlimited or we abolish this nonsense.
How can one disrespect someone who has no self-respect?
She just announced to the world that she is indeed a SLUT.
“If she thinks Rush was bad, she should listen to Glenn Becks comments.”
El Rushbo is a superb solo act when he gets started, like on this topic. But Glenn in combo with his sidekicks Stu & Pat is rollicking unstoppable comedy. It’s literally hard to drive & listen at the same time with people in other cars pointing and staring.
So this young woman wants subsidized safe sex during three years of law school? And is willing to express her demands before a congressional committee?
Who’s going to want to date her now? Just askin’.
"Slut" and "prostitute" are accurate terms for a woman who is paid for sex. There are much coarser terms for it. Limbaugh was being kind.
Liberal women are good at telling us how independent they are, but the reality is, liberal women put themselves dependent on the government, as well as men when it comes to money. They are always asking for handouts. How independent is that?
Why don’t we all just send Ms. Pelosi a little email today?
Who told them about these comments? I know they don’t ever listen to Rush. I thought it was actually funny.
Any day that Rush gets that demented sow aka Nutzi Pelousy into a frenzied rage is a VERY GOOD DAY.
The former Shrieker of the House represents a district saturated by whores, sluts, prostitutes and every kind of depraved scum imaginable. She’s just playing to her base.
She is too busy doing something other than fix her hair. If you are on the big stage like that, wouldn’t you? My thinking is that she is just an activist for hire whatever the cause and may even be a lesbian. But what do I know.
YOU BROKE MY MONITOR!!!!
This is Pelosi’s whorish self loathing by child making proxy action.
She is for the Occupy the CAtholic Church movement, and this is all this is about:
To attack conservatives and construe them as anticondom and thus seize the CAtholics’ best and most politicaly advantageous assets: their doctors and health care.
Unless those women go by the name of Sarah Palin, Jan Brewer, Christine O'Donnell, Nikki Haley, etc.
Explain to me again why lesbians need birth control?
Well, Stephanopoulos and OBama will have to because they are the ones orchestrating her as part of the OccupyWallStreet and OccupyCatholicHospitals schemes.
When society encourages these “women” to have sex, they turn into dikes. It’s a natural immune response to STDs.
WHORES PAID BY GOVERNMENT IS PC
It’s OK to be a whore if you get government allowance to be one. It’s been going on via welfare paychecks for a while now.
Private Bunny Ranch prostitutes are not PC, Stossel proved it and this proves it
THey all are skank cheap whores hypocrites.
A person who pays something like %50,000 a year to go to college is begging others to buy her birth control in public.
How is this not open to ridicule?
Yeah, about 40 years... ever since Roe v. Wade.
Since then the government has inculcated itself into nearly every other room:
The hospital room - with Obama Care
The boardroom - G/M., Chrysler
The dining room with innumerable food regulations.
And even the bathroom - shower head and toilet regulations.
I see, somehow believe a person is immune when having loose sex is health? Being deepthroated is supporting their voices?
But then we have laws against disturbing the habitat of spotted Owls and killing other birds so they do not infect them...
Welcome to Pelobama care! Where giving sugar to diabetics and sodomy are considered healthy and good medicine.
THis world is completely stuck on stupid and perversion. Soddom and Gomora does not have much on us. Touching angels is indeed forbidden.
NAh, not yet.
Right now we need Pelosi to be encouraged into her disturbing statements of offense hiding behind self-loathing.
Her mind is getting as distorted as her botox face.
Flak is always heaviest when you are directly over the target!
Go get’um Rush!
Fluke being paid tax payer dollars to have sex? Technically Rush is right. Its state sponsored prostitution.Why should our tax dollars go for that? She can use private funds.
