Hillary Clinton says Limbaugh should be called out for 'verbal assault'
The Hill ^ | April 2, 2012 | Justin Sink

Posted on 04/02/2012 7:14:28 PM PDT by Free ThinkerNY

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said that some of Rush Limbaugh's comments towards women amounted to a "verbal assault," and called "for a return to civility" when asked about the controversy surrounding the conservative radio host and what he said about Georgetown University law student Sandra Fluke.

"I try very hard to stay out of the politics, so let me put the campaign and the implications to the side — that is for others to comment on. But as a woman and as someone who can vaguely remember being a young woman, and as a mother of a young woman of that age and generation, I thought the response was very encouraging, the response from the public, the response from women cutting across all kinds of categories, the response from advertisers, so I'll let that speak for itself," Clinton said during an interview with MSNBC.

Pay no attention to the ditz. She’s about 2 months behind the rest of us. We’ve moved on to hoodies, “Skillet candy” and Trayvon.

Is it just me or has anyone else noticed that the proliferation of the HC style of “woman’ has coincided with the rise in both homosexual men and misogynistic men?

Can’t for the life of me imagine why...

That’s rich ... she’s been partly responsible for making politics the bloodsport it’s been for the last twenty-five years, and now she’s calling for a return to civility. She must mean the good old days when conservatives used to just sit back and take their crap. Bring it on, Hill. Bring it on.

They weren’t “comments about women” - they were comments about Flu(c?)ke!

I heard it directly in real time. I still think it was hilarious. I was ROFL!

I’m a woman, only a bit older.

_________________________________________________

Hey Hillary, Limbaugh may shoot words at women; your husband (President at the time) shot his seed at a woman. Yeah, real civil Hillary!

Please spare us your hypocritical drivel.

Frankly I’m tired of being told I have to drive down the ONE-WAY STREET CALLED “CIVILITY” while the LIBERALS judge everyone else, call for a 10K bounty on a guy who HASN’T YET been convicted of a crime, sends out twitters on a wrong address to some poor old white couple and abuse a WALGREENS in FL with the FRIEKED-HATE FILLED-MORONIC PRE-PAID UNION ORGANIZERS!

What a steamin' load of self-serving bullshit! I have a couple of young daughters as well - neither one of them is a slut and neither one of them sucks at the teat of Big Government - they are both making their way through life by dint of their own abilities and their strenuous efforts on their own behalf.

I'm damned proud of both of them and the strong women they have become.



Nos genuflectitur ad non princeps sed Princeps Pacem!

Listen, O isles, unto me; and hearken, ye people, from far; The LORD hath called me from the womb; from the bowels of my mother hath he made mention of my name. (Isaiah 49:1 KJV)

Well, Hill, I guess this is it. This is the statement that will finish Rush.

I think you should come out and talk about it a little more. Drive his ratings up a little further.

With Rush, there is no such thing as “bad” publicity.
