When I heard this in the car I died laughing. Apparently Obama has now called Sandra Fluke, heroine of the left, to see if she’s OK after having been ‘attacked’ by Rush. Oh man that is hilarious. Rush reacts to it on-air.
Amid his reaction though, Rush makes a great point. He says that he has been asked why he was so insulting to Fluke. He responded by making the point that his whole “free contraception” movement, on top of the “rich aren’t paying their fair share” movement is highly insulting to him. He likened it to a woman he didn’t know knocking on his door asking for money for contraception because she wanted to go and have sex with 3 guys that evening. Rush explains:
“Where is it written that when all of a sudden if you want something and don’t have the money for it, somebody else has to pay for it. I think the whole notion of being insulted here – there are a lot of us insulted by this whole idea that is growing throughout the Obama administration, that the people who make this country work are somehow doing their fair share, not paying their fair share, that we have to be punished even more. Here’s the latest example of it.”
Of course he ends the segment by suggesting, tongue-in-cheek, that he is waiting for Bill Clinton to call Sandra Fluke to see if she’s OK. Ha!
Here’s the full clip:
As a side note, I highly recommend you go read Michelle Malkin’s post today on this whole Rush/Sandra Fluke ordeal.
