Stay Classy, Rush

The former Miss America judge shares his thoughts on Sandra Fluke, the Georgetown student who eventually testified on contraception:

What does it say about the college co-ed Susan Fluke [sic] who goes before a congressional committee and 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. … Ok, so she's not a slut. She's round-heeled.

"'Round-heeled' is an old-fashioned term for promiscuity," notes Jack Mirkenson. Then Limbaugh takes a shot at Danica Patrick, the female NASCAR star. Another of his greatest hits here. Some Democratic female members of Congress are finally asking Republicans to distance themselves from this remark by their ideological leader:

Limbaugh's attacks, the Democrats said, "are outside the circle of civilized discussion and …  unmask the strong disrespect for women held by some in this country … We call upon the Republican leaders in the House to condemn these vicious attacks on Ms. Fluke, which are in response to her testimony to the Congress."

Good luck with that.
