    in this amazing discovery.

    So how does this make it any better that Rush Limbaugh called someone a slut over the period of four days?  How does this change the fact that Fluke didn't get to speak about birth control?

    Oh, it doesn't?  Why did this guy open his piehole again?

    •  I was scanning through to see if anyone ... (11+ / 0-)

      ... would make this point:

      Ummmmm ... So what?

      As with all the conspiracy theories about how Sandra Fluke was just a Democratic "plant" to cause embarrassment to Rush and Republicans, this new attack leaves out one key point:

      It doesn't at all address the fact that if Rush had never said a word about her -- (let alone attacked her in horrible terms) -- no one would know who Sandra Fluke is.  

      No matter what they find out about her, it is irrelevant to the fact that ... again ... if Rush had never said a word about her, no one would know who she is.

      There is no recognition whatsoever of the the obvious:  that it was the behavior of Rush -- and Republicans -- which has caused this problem and backlash for them.

      They are doing the typical abuser thing I saw in my years doing counseling with abusers:  

      When their abusive behavior gets them into trouble, and has  people demanding they be held accountable for it ... they attack the character of their victims, as if to justify their abuse:  "See how horrible she is!  How could I NOT act that way in the face of such horrible-ness?!  I'm sure you would have too!"

        random people giving Congressional testimony (even on highly controversial subjects) (and she didn't even get to testify at Issa's goddamn cmte hearing!) don't typically acheive this degree of notoriety.

        Limbaugh's obsession w/ Fluke is exactly what elevated her to the level of national lightning rod, but somehow it's the Obama Admin (in collaboration w/ Soros, the ghost of Karl Marx, ACORN, Sean Penn, the United Nations, and bin Laden) that's trying to trip up conservatives by getting them to attack Fluke personally. Right.
