"No, the most basic issue here is not religious morality, individual liberty, or fiscal responsibility. It’s that a society in which middle-aged children of privilege testify before the most powerful figures in the land to demand state-enforced funding for their sex lives at a time when their government owes more money than anyone has ever owed in the history of the planet is quite simply nuts." –Mark Steyn, National Review
Sandra Fluke (everyone’s favorite “slut”) is apparently considering ….wait for it…running for Rep. Henry Waxman’s (D -CA) seat now that Waxman has announced his intention to retire from a position he has held for 40 years. The district encompasses wealthy celebrity-littered areas like Bel Air, Brentwood, Santa Monica, Beverly Hills, and Malibu.
"I am strongly considering running. I'll be making my decision soon." – Sandra Fluke
Fluke’s claim to fame was a result of a fake protest she launched to get her contraception paid for by the U.S. government. She masqueraded as a college student (despite the fact that she is over 30), a birth control activist (whatever that is), a woman who has been victimized (?), a poor person who can’t afford $9 per month for birth control pills (she is from an elite family and attended Georgetown post graduate), and an online educator (she organized an online webinar that no one attended). Rush Limbaugh made her a household name after a running satirical commentary about how absurd Fluke’s propositions were.
"She essentially says that she must be paid to have sex—what does that make her? It makes her a slut, right? It makes her a prostitute. She wants to be paid to have sex. She's having so much sex she can't afford the contraception. She wants you and me and the taxpayers to pay her to have sex." – Rush Limbaugh
Fluke has publically embarrassed herself many times since the Rush Limbaugh controversy. Fluke spoke at the DNC arguing against ultrasounds (a painless medical imaging procedure used for a medical professional to visually check the health and development of a fetus in utero), protested to allow transgenders to join the military, campaigned to force universities to make gender reassignment surgery a “requirement” for college healthcare plans and called for the government to “do something” about rape on Indian reservations.
This is almost as good as Ashley Judd running for Senate.
