I’m probably going to get flamed for this, but Rush really stuck his foot in it. It was fair game to criticize her, but calling her a slut and a prostitute was over the line. That’s the kind of language that doesn’t play well anywhere. Rush is a smart man, but he stepped into it big time.
Even worse, Obama and the MSM was just waiting to turn this into a huge political issue. I already see posts on Yahoo News (falsely) saying that Republicans want to eliminate all birth control. That’s not what was said, but the sheeple won’t bother to look much further than the bumper sticker slogan.
I agree with you completely. I have listened to Rush since the late 80’s and found him lately to have become lazy. He goes off on these name calling tirades too often. I think he thinks he is being funny, but it really just boorish. I actually like the show better when he is on vacation and one of the Marks is on.
I completely agree with you. I wish Rush had apologized early on and let it go. This woman may be a useful idiot for the Left but calling her a slut for being single, using contraception and having sex is nonsense. I suspect Kathryn was using contraception and having sex before she and Rush got married. The only difference is that Kathryn didn’t expect the taxpayers to pay for hers. But that difference doesn’t make Fluke a slut.
Rush also talked about Fluke in such a weird way, saying she must be having a lot of sex because she needed a lot of contraception. That’s not the way most contraception works.
Last week was just a bad week.
