Hot Flash Rush
Menopause is a biologdeical condition which may prompt many women to seek medical attention. Should this be covered by health insurance, even insurance purchased by religious organizations? I think everyone would agree to a yes answer here.
Pregnancy is a biological condition which may prompt many women to seek medical attention. Should this be covered by health insurance, even insurance purchased by religious organizations? I think everyone would agree to a yes answer here.
But apparently having sex without wanting to have a child right away is not a condition for which women can legitimately seek medical assessment. It is a sin (says Rick Santorum) and a crime (says Rush Limbaugh).
Limbaugh trashed an earnest Georgetown University Law School student as a “slut” and a “prostitute” because she wants contraception, obtainable only under doctor’s orders, to be covered by health insurance. He wanted to know who bought condoms for her in junior high. Rush’s unseemly prurient streak, suddenly emerging, is stimulated by what set of personal frustrations?
Hey Rush: don’t I remember you had a hydrocodone dependence problem? I bet the pills and the rehab, unsuccessful, were covered by health insurance. And who paid for YOUR contraception and other expenses while you were wandering around in a stoned daze? Oh gee, that’s right, I forgot: men can have sex without contraception, so they don’t need to pay for it. Only the women who can be impregnated need to actually worry about, and pay for, contraception.
Rush followed up the insults by demanding that the Georgetown law student post videos of her private sexual activities on the internet “so we can all watch.”
Time to re-publish my very favorite joke: What’s the difference between Rush Limbaugh and the Hindenburg? One is a flaming gasbag and the other is merely a dirigible.
Hey Rush, you won’t care any more because AOL dropped you, but how many AOL subscribers had NO IDEA that AOL had been sponsoring your rantings for years? Those independents, Democrats and Republicans will be signing out of AOL like fleas jumping from a sinking lemming. I am shorting AOL tomorrow, together with Carbonite, Quicken Loans, Sleep Number Beds, Citrix Systems and LegalZoom, all of whom sponsored your hate-mongering until you finally alienated them. Rush, can I short YOU? Are you publicly held? Ewww, gross, say my nieces.
Did your mother, bless and forgive her, actually name you “Rush?” She probably named you something like Norbert or Willard but you later decided that a persona with the self-control of a slavering horn-dog and the personal charm of a king cobra needed a jazzy name. Guess what? Moms across America will NOT be naming their kids after you.
Meanwhile the Democrats do NOT want you to go off the air, so maybe George Soros will step in to keep your vile trash-mouth reverberating across the landscape, only to galvanize every woman in Americato go to the polls to make sure that no candidate who might adopt one percent of your ideas gets elected.
