I have to assume she’s never needed the pill — I pulled this off Geller’s site (to which I do not link)
A 30-year-old poses as a 23-year-old, chooses a Catholic University to attend at $65,000 per year, and cannot afford ALL the birth control pills she needs… so she wants the US taxpayers to pay for her rampant sexual activity. By all accounts she is banging it five times a day. She sounds more like a prostitute to me. She must have an gyno bill to choke a horse (pun intended). Calling this whore a slut was a softball.
Do these people have any brains at all? Do they think, ever? Or do they honestly believe that women who have frequent sex have to take more pills than those on a strict once-a-week schedule?
I’m starting to think the entire American Right needs to be sent to a Masters and Johnson therapy clinic, if there are any around any more.
Charles Johnson quotes some of the comments — apparently Ms. Fluke is also a Muslim-lover.
Anyhoo — do read Dennis G., “You could hear the fear.” He thinks the loss of advertisers could really be putting some fear into Rush. Apparently most of his ads are “multi-level marketing deals with referral kick-backs for anybody who mentions the show when placing an order. And othersâ€”most of them it seemsâ€”were straight up grifts to fluff up Rushboâ€™s wallet and fund this or that aspect of the wingnut money machine.” If enough legitimate businesses drop out … well, we can hope. And join the fight …
[Update: AOL is out!]
Update: Cenk Uygur believes Rush’s ratings claims are a lie, and that he couldn’t possibly have 20 million listeners as he claims. Also —
But one thing is for sure — he’s hurt, dog! That’s why we see the unprecedented apology from him on Sandra Fluke. When this controversy first broke, I predicted on our show that more advertisers would drop him (at the time, only two had). Advertisers are much more likely to drop a controversial guy if his numbers are already down. They’ll ride it out if he’s still delivering the goods. This is the same thing that happened to Imus. His ratings were miserable already, so advertisers didn’t have enough incentive to stick with him when trouble arose.
So, Rush is in big trouble now as more and more advertisers peel off. He’s in a tail spin. Why else would you triple down on the “slut” comments from Wednesday to Friday and then issue an apology on Saturday? He has over-reached (in his offensive comments) and undelivered (in his ratings). That’s a lethal combo.
