|Sandra Fluke bein' all slutty.|
I’ve been reading all of the banter on social media and TV regarding the latest Rush debacle – his calling Sandra Fluke a “slut” and a “prostitute” for wanting women’s contraceptive methods covered by insurance. Saying he wants her sex acts taped and posted on the internet so he can watch.
Is anyone actually surprised that Limbaugh is a hate-filled windbag? He always has been, most likely always will be, so why should we even pay attention to him?
In my view, Rush Limbaugh is a sad, sad man filled with anger and resentment. I mean, look at the guy. He’s morbidly obese, and addicted to Oxycontin and Viagra (which his insurance most likely pays for). He’s been married four times- and no kids, by the way, so according to his theory, either all four of his wives were contraceptive-usin' sluts, OR, they were so repulsed by him they never let him touch them. Or he ran out of Viagra.
My prediction? Rush is doing a slow-motion fall onto his own sword, slip-sliding his way toward a full-tilt meltdown. One day soon, he’ll be banished to the internet like Glenn Beck, or pitching a reality show like Palin.
But most of us really, really want him to go away now, and the thing is…we could actually make it happen. In the battle of Sluts Vs. Windbag, we have the advantage.
We’re standing in front of the Wicked Witch with a bucket full of water, people.
We hold the power to make Rush what he fears most….
We could stop quoting him, stop showing clips of his radio show all over television, stop talking about him altogether.
Instead, we could raise our own voices, and speak up for what we believe in. If more and more of us do that, we will drown him out.
It just may be Rush is one of the best things that ever happened to us contraception usin’, book-learnin’, voice raisin’ sluts. Because of him, many of us are speaking up, and our voices are being broadcast around the world.
And he thought he was belittling us.
