  • Rush Limbaugh, that classy dude, called Sandra Fluke (the woman who was refused an opportunity to speak to the all-penis House Oversight Committee about birth control) a “slut” because she said her female classmates at Georgetown struggled with the cost to pay for birth control. “If we are going to pay for your contraceptives, and thus pay for you to have sex, we want something for it,” Rush said. “We want you post the videos online so we can all watch.” Oh, jeebus.
