Sandra Fluke, the Georgetown University Law student who was called a "slut" and a "prostitute" by Rush Limbaugh last week, appeared on "The View" this morning.

Sandra Fluke Will Not “Be Silenced” By Misogynist Blowhards Like Rush Limbaugh

"I guess my reaction is the reaction a lot of women have when they’ve been called these names.

Rush Limbaugh On Danica Patrick: “What Do You Expect Of A Woman Driver?”

I don't know why anyone is asking NASCAR driver Danica Patrick about her opinion on the Obama administration's contraception rules, but oh well, that's besides the point. She  supports it.

Shocking! Rush Limbaugh Insensitive Towards Rape Victims

"[After Saturday's shooting in Arizona, when Sarah Palin and other conservatives were criticized for using at-times violent political rehtoric, a Time magazine reporter] said, well they should have just turned the other cheek and stopped defending themselves, and they would have shut this thing all down.

Why Would Elton John Play Rush Limbaugh’s Wedding?

Pineapple on pizza. High-heeled sneakers. Sending the "Sex and the City 2" cast to the Middle East. There are a lot of things that make me think, "What the hell were they thinking?!"

This Is Where Rush Limbaugh’s Magic Happened

It's not that we expected the conservative talk show host's bedroom(s) to be super sexy and chic, but we also didn't think he got freaky in a boudoir straight out of Boca Raton circa 1976. Limbaugh's New York apartment is for sale -- you can see the rest of the gaudiness here.

Miss America loves inviting random people to judge over their annual grossfest pageant. But the judging panel for the 2010 pageant will include perhaps the most random person ever—Rush Limbaugh.
