The Fluke Charade: A Middle-Age Child's Nutty Demand
IBD Editorials ^ | March 9, 2012 | MARK STEYN

Posted on 03/09/2012 4:32:14 PM PST by Kaslin

I'm writing this from Australia, so, if I'm not quite up to speed on recent events in the United States, bear with me — the telegraph updates are a bit slow here in the bush. As I understand it, Sandra Fluke is a young coed who attends Georgetown Law, and recently testified before Congress.

Oh, wait, no. Update: It wasn't a Congressional hearing; the Democrats just got it up to look like one, like summer stock, with Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid doing the show right here in the barn, and providing a cardboard set for the world premiere of Miss Fluke Goes To Washington, with full supporting cast led by Chuck Schumer strolling in through the French windows in tennis whites and drawling, "Anyone for bull****?"

Oh, and the "young coed" turns out to be 30, which is what less-evolved cultures refer to as early middle age. She's a couple of years younger than Mozart was at the time he croaked, but, if the Dems are to be believed, the plucky little Grade 24 schoolgirl has already made an even greater contribution to humanity. She's had the courage to stand up in public and demand that someone else (and this is where one is obliged to tiptoe cautiously, lest offense is given to gallant defenders of the good name of American maidenhood such as the many prestigious soon-to-be-former sponsors of this column who've booked Bill Maher for their corporate retreat with his amusing "Sarah Palin is a c***" routine ...

Where was I? Oh, yes. The brave middle-aged schoolgirl had the courage to stand up in public and demand that someone else pay for her sex life.

Well, as noted above, she's attending Georgetown, a nominally Catholic seat of learning, so how expensive can that be?

I don’t think it was the case when Fluke was at Cornell, but now they have ‘full funding’ for eligible students.

These are costs projected for next year (10 years after Fluke’s senior year there):

Endowed Colleges
Tuition and fees $43,413
Housing $ 8,112
Dining $ 5,566
Books & supplies $ 820
Personal expenses $ 1,680
Total $59,591

She ‘testified’ that she is a “Public Interest” student. Apparently, if one enters law school as a “Public Interest” student, one’s tuition and fees are at least largely covered. Would be interesting to pursue, as “public interest” likely translates freely into “left wing activist.”

That's something Rush Limbaugh might be interested in - or Hannity. The New York Times would run and hide before they would cover it... the bias would remind them of their own... If you're right - it's an outrage.

Thanks for sharing.

It aint over til Obama's over.

"When he called to congratulate me, I told Pres Obama
that after non-stop sex, I get severe constipation,
even impacted bowels, sometimes."

"Obama said he'll sign an Executive Order---
taxpayers will pay for all sex-related constipation."

Fluck ‘testified before Congress’ that she is a “Public Interest” student at the pricey Georgetown Law School.....wherein tuition and fees are largely covered.

She had to fillout financial forms to get these benefits----were any of the forms falsified?

Filing false financial info, then pocketing free benefits, could involve several felonies.

She dresses nice, has money for makeup, skin care, hair care, travel and dining expenses......

So why do taxpayers have to pay when her vagina on steroids needs attention?

She has so much money she has no clue what birth control cost... that’s telling too. I would like to know if she filed false financial info OR if the school gives special advantages to ‘liberal’ students. Because you’re right Liz, she’s appears to be living an upper class lifestyle... I’d like to know if it’s on our dime.

As a subsidized "public interest" law student,Fluck appears to be living an upper class lifestyle.

Probably GU receives federal funds to finance "Public interest" programs.

Ergo, Fluck's financial application should be a public record...and should be rigorously scrutinized. (Although anyone even remotely questioning The Vagina Queen's intentions is made into a pariah.)

Fluck seems to be a practiced parasite---she apparently gradated Cornell on a freebie.

Where are her parents---the ones Obama said were so proud of her whining about sucking off the public teat?

Are the Fluck's so poverty-stricken that they cannot afford to educate their student-parasite, still getting free education at age 30?

(first off, please excuse the day late comment)

As 41 put it, Mzzzzz Fluke 'bats for the other team'. I read that myself maybe Thursday, i.e.: she doesn't (cough) 'like men'. In that piece it also said she needed 'the Pill' to regulate her menstrual cycle, nothing else. As such, the possibility of her getting pregnant from all her sex is about 0%. And so is the chance that it costs her $3K per year for The Pill when it's $4-$9 a month at Wal-Mart and other pharmacies.

Ergo, she wasn't speaking for herself in front of that Democrat dog and pony show set up by San Fran Nan that consisted solely of House democrats and which; a) wasn't a real hearing, b) she wasn't giving testimony c) she wasn't under oath, d) that $3000 dollar number was pulled from thin air, e) her whole speech was nothing but anecdotal hearsay and f) as hearsay it wouldn't be allowed in any court or real congressional hearing.

It is also now being reported (on The Blaze.com iirc) that Mzzzzz Fluke is being 'handled' by an Obama Toady --- whose on the White House Staff!

IMO this whole 'Flukeing thing' ;-) will blow up in the Rats faces. The MSM can't hide forever the facts that are slowly coming out from all conservative media outlets. And that this so-called controversy is just anther Obama-Axelrod political trick. Its purpose to change the actual subject of Barry's Mandate DICTATE from Freedom of Religion and the FREE exercise thereof to a: 'woman's health issue'.

THIS JUST IN---FOX NEWS---O'REILLY FACTOR REPORT

WH -FLUCK CONNECTION Fluck is now being repped by the progressive PR agency SKDKnickerbocker which employs Anita Dunn, the former Obama communications director as managing editor....

BACKSTORY Fluck is a former head of "Georgetown University Law Students for Reproductive Justice." On February 9th, a group called "The Feminist Majority Foundation" arranged for Sandra to appear at press conference criticizing Catholic bishops for objecting to Catholic hater Obama's contraception mandate.

Later, Catholic-hater Congressman Elijah Cummings, the former Chairman of the Congressional Black Caucus, invited Sandra to testify at the House Oversight Committee. But she was turned down by chair Congressman Darrell Issa because she had no expertise in the church/state subject matter.

Nevertheless, Ms. Fluck and her vagina went to the hearing and afterward complained to ABC News that she had been denied. A week later, Nancy Pelosi staged the mock hearing starring Sandra, her vagina, and assorted Catholic-haters. After which Fluck and her itchy vagina were elevated to left-wing martyrdom.

=======================================

Flucke is no fluke.......polls show the controversy has benefited Catholic-hater Ohaha, who is on the ropes with his initial church assault. This controversy, erected on Fluck's vagina, is completely bogus ....

==============================================

OBAMA STICKING IT TO CATHOLICS To insert free b/c into ObamCare is unnecessary......and can only be described as a Catholic-haters' terrorist attack on believers.

Under Title 10 of the Public Health Act, those who don't want to drive a ways to the local PP aboretoreum can go to Wal-Mart or Target and get b/c for $9 a month.

That is what I told my husband. Let her sex partners PAY for this. I hear they are lined up at her door, the line of boys is 2 blocks long! LOL

I found out where to get The Pill when I was a dumb college kid, and getting ready to get married. I was told I needed to take it a month or two before my wedding to be sure it was working on me, etc. So I went to the infirmary on the campus and got The dang Pill. I PAID FOR IT. I didn’t have health insurance back then, I paid my own way through college and paid my own way. I didn’t have a sweet “Public Interest” Scholarship like Miss Fluke has.

And if she doesn’t have a fiance or at the very least a steady boyfriend, and she is having sex all the time with different partners, then What the Heck does she THINK she should be called? certainly Not a Virgin LOL

OK let's do the math.
The Pill costs $4 a month for generic brand.
$9 a month for name brand.
Multiply by 12 months, then by 3 years.
$3000.00????????????
She certainly isn't a Math Major!

So, Fluke says it costs $3,000 for three years and yet the pharmacy only charges a little over $300 for those same 3 years. Either Fluke is a lousy comparison shopper or just a plain old-fashioned liar. Wonder which one!?

Her upwardly mobile appearing lifestyle could be the result of one of two (or more) things: she DID work for the 5+ years between Cornell and Georgetown; she was prepared for this by Dems on the committee who would have seen to it her appearance was professional looking.

I don’t know what comprised the financial aid package she apparently got from G’town. It could be that it was all covered by the University since I assume “public interest” means she indicated in her applications that her interest in law was ‘public interest,’ i.e., advocacy, rather than a private practice that theoretically can be lucrative. In that case, it would be the university she’d cheated. If she did that fraudulently, they could deny her the J.D., and bring charges.

Really, I have no clue what she meant by referring to herself and others as ‘public interest’ students at the law school and hope someone pursues that.

I searched for “Free Condoms Washington DC” and found 160 places to get them just from the Department of Health!

http://doh.dc.gov/doh/cwp/view,a,1371,q,603907.asp

I’m sure there are plenty of other places to get them too.

$9/mo for BC pills AND free condoms on every block... I could write pages on what’s wrong with this story, but I’m most interested in the politics behind the “$3000 a year to have safe sex” idea. Clearly you can have safe sex for free thanks to the DOH. And BC pills for $100 a year to boot. The people behind this political grandstanding need a comeuppance - this story is a symbol for waste and inefficiency in the health care system.

Conservatives, we do ourselves NO favors by using crude language. EVERY time we use crude language it’s a black mark against us.

We are the good guys. We adhere to common decency. Rush, Ann, every time you fail to adhere to common decency, you muddy the water. Take the high road. We are the good guys. Let’s act like it.

1. Yeah, Rush’s language was unncessarily crude.

2. He may well have reasonably accurately described the woman’s behaviors and lifestyle. I’m not sure either way.

3. Pit of vipers, ravening wolves, white washed tombs was pretty stark language to the Pharisees.

4. I wouldn’t want to be MORE upset at Rush’s language than upset at the woman’s crude behaviors and lifestyle.

BTW, I watched a bit of video of the woman.

She came across to me as a very practiced, polished, trained, super shill posterwoman for the horrific lifestyle globalists.

I haven’t read the evidence for her early life escapades. However, I could believe she could do almost anything and smile very sweetly and innocently about it.
