I’ve often wondered how long it would take for Rush Limbaugh to step over the line. He’s long had the power to do and say whatever he wants and get away with it, but sooner or later, that power puts a short-circuit between the mouth and the brain and invariably, the fool inside comes out…….and it ain’t pretty. I’ve seen and heard it a number of times when talk-show folks start believing their own press clippings and the next thing you know, they’re selling used cars. Rush will never have to sell used cars for sure, but his inflated, and I do mean INFLATED opinion of himself, has proven him to be……..(careful Gary…be careful)….“AN IDIOT!!!!”
When a character of his stature resorts to calling a naive college girl a “prostitute and a slut” because she wants us taxpayers to buy her contraceptives…..and then compounds his grievous rant by asking her to take pictures when she’s having sex and mail them to him…..he is one sick dude. Yes I know he apologized over the weekend, but too late jerk. You’re smarter than this, you’re better than this and if none of your sponsors forgive you, that would be fine with me as well.
Meantime, back to the Law School student who complains to Congress that in order for her to have sex regularly while she’s in school, it would cost her about $3,000, which she can’t afford, and she believes “we” should pay for her protected sex life through coverage in her subsidized health insurance plan. I’m not sure how accurate it is, but somebody calculated that in order for contraception to cost $3,000 while she’s in Law School, she’d have to be having sex three times a day, every day, for the next three years.
Why are we even having this conversation? Why? I don’t get it. Why do we have Presidential campaign advisors offering this sage advice to women..”the best contraception or birth control device is an aspirin held tightly between your knees?” This is nonsense. If an insurance company wants to offer it….good luck to ’em….but as far as I’m concerned, we shouldn’t be paying for anybody’s contraceptives, anymore than we should be paying for anybody’s Viagara.
