A man who takes a bottle of Viagra on his stag party calls someone else a whore. Huh.

Rush Limbaugh is a total asshat.

What makes him an icon of asshattery, you ask? Is it because he complained Michelle Obama is “uppity”? Yes. Is it because he is a drug addict who cries out for harsher drug laws provided they don’t effect him? Yes. In fact, nearly everything about him, from his war-hawk draft dodging (this is a chicken-hawk, y’all) to his implication that Chelsea Clinton was the “Whitehouse dog” makes him both an asshat and a douche bag.

Lately, Rush Limbaugh has been on a mission to prove he is such a misogynistic  douche that his bloodstream is actually vinegar and water. 

He has been attacking Sandra Fluke, the Georgetown law student who testified that contraception was important for man women’s health, as a “slut” and a “prostitute” who should  make a sex tape for him to enjoy. He responded to America’s revulsion to his attacks by ramping up his verbal assaults against her, suggesting (among other things) she has been promiscuous since middle school.  Fluke has responded to the name-calling with grace, pointing out that this was just a tactic to shame women into shutting up. Meanwhile, several other people are trying to explain to Rush Limbaugh that you can use some forms of contraception for health reasons, and that you don’t need MORE birth control pills when you have more sex. Unlike, say, something like Viagra.

Speaking of Viagra … Rush Limbaugh, who is now on his forth childless marriage, was busted in possession of a bottle of Viagra with someone else’s name on it in June of 2006 during an guys only trip to the Dominican Republic. The Dominican Republic just happens to be a place where sex workers, including young girls and boys, can be had cheaply and easily by rich tourists. Why wasn’t the possibility that Rush Limbaugh is one of those sex tourist asshats made more of in mainstream so-called liberal media in 2006?

Anyway, for a man who travels with a bunch of other men to a place well known for underage prostitutes and sex tourism to call any one else a “slut” is a bit rich. But maybe Rush Limbaugh has a good reason to suspect that every woman in the world trades sex for money or other forms of material gain. Maybe those are the only kinds of women he knows … personally.  

Meanwhile, the fatuous gasbag known as Rush Limbaugh is hemorrhaging advertisers as a backlash against his heinous comments. Maybe it’s the fact that 99% of American woman have used birth control that’s getting him in trouble. That’s more than 155 million sluts, you know.

And you know how us sluts can hold a grudge.

  2. This is why I love you and I bow to you, my pope. He’s obviously just plain evil.

  3. Laura says:

    Thank you for saying what I wanted to say, only much better than I ever could. Well done.

  4. Jim says:

    Well said…..

  5. Yes, yes, yes. I knew I’d love reading your take on this issue. He is evil and a hypocrite and did I mention evil?

    “And you know how us sluts can hold a grudge.” – And How!

    Did you hear Patricia Heaton was more or less agreeing with this assbag? Seriously. I would find you a link but I am on my phone.

    Okay. Back at a PC now. Feb. 29, Heaton tweeted, “Hey G-Town Gal: Plz let us also pay for your Starbucks, movie theater tickets and your favorite hot wings combo deal at KFC! Anything else?”

    My reply:
    Listen twatwaffle, contraception is medically necessary for some people and it isn’t up to you to decide who. Furthermore, Starbucks, movies, and KFC are HARDLY THE FUCKING SAME as preventing pregnancy. Though, if someone buys me KFC, I won’t be getting pregnant anyway because I won’t be putting out. That shit is nasty. But I digress. Get this through your stupid head: NO ONE IS ASKING YOU TO PAY FOR HER CONTRACEPTION. You are not on the same insurance plan as she is. This plan requires employers to include contraception in their insurance coverage. Nothing more. You might think it’s frivolous, like Starbucks, but people who have ovarian cysts or are allergic to latex and/or spermicide beg to differ. And guess what, you don’t get to choose what is frivolous health care. You just don’t. I know you’re famous, and think a hell of a lot of yourself, but well and truly, you’re just not that important.

    No love,
    Luna

    p.s. She apologised for being disrespectful. But did not change her position. She still thinks The Pill shouldn’t be covered.

    I don’t understand why people are complaining about paying for the pill. It’s not like it costs much money. Especially compared to the cost of raising an unwanted child.
