Skip to comments.Rush Limbaugh's 'slut' comment draws wrath of Staten Island's three female lawmakers

STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. -- Staten Island's female elected officials from both sides of the aisle are demanding that conservative radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh "apologize to all women" for calling a Georgetown University Law student a "slut" on his program.
Limbaugh caused a national firestorm when he used the word after Sandra Fluke testified before Congress about the need for contraceptive coverage.
"What does it say about the college coed ... who goes before a congressional committee and essentially says that she must be paid to have sex?" Limbaugh said on Wednesday. "It makes her a slut, right? It makes her a prostitute. She wants to be paid to have sex."
He went on to suggest that Ms. Fluke distribute sex tapes of herself.
"If we are going to pay for your contraceptives, and thus pay for you to have sex, we want something for it," he said. "We want you post the videos online so we can all watch."
The remarks brought swift, bi-partisan condemnation in Washington, with President Barack Obama, who called Ms. Fluke personally, and GOP House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio), slamming Limbaugh.
The Island's elected women -- state Sen. Diane Savino (D-North Shore/Brooklyn), Assemblywoman Nicole Malliotakis (R-East Shore/Brooklyn) and City Councilwoman Debi Rose (D-North Shore) -- called Limbaugh's remarks "disgusting" and said they were made all the worse because March is Women's History Month.
"It does not matter if your hero is Eleanor Roosevelt or Margaret Thatcher," said Ms. Savino, "this is about treating women with dignity and respect. If Mr. Limbaugh cannot find it in his conscience to apologize, his fans and advertisers should demand that he does."

If you listen to the libs they are claiming this is all about Republicans ‘ ... taking away a woman's birth control ’. The words they use the most is ‘ ..taking away a woman's access to birth... ’. They also use the terms ‘ ... allow an employer to make a woman's health care decisions ’ and believe it or not even used ‘ ..want the government to make a woman's health care decisions.. ’ when talking about limited these future Obama-care requirements with Blunt amendment.
Now look at the timing of the release of this future 2013 policy by DofHHS. The media storyline (fed to them by Dems) is that it was an initial mistake by HHS but then Republicans ‘over-reached’ by opposing Obama’s ‘compromise’ and turning it into a debate about birth control which they will lose (media story-line).
This regulation doesn't even go into effect until 2013 and the specific regulations and exemptions have not even been made yet. That makes it impossible for the Catholic church to wage a legal battle against it now which would look bad for Obama. And they cant refuse to comply forcing the government to take action against the church until it goes into effect next year AFTER the election. So no one appears hurt by this right now. So far I see no massive religious based civil rights protests, marches, anything organized by the Catholics that are opposed to it.
I think throwing this Obama-care ‘policy decision’ out there 10 months early to get Republicans to argue against it now was planned so they can claim that Republicans are, their nattive : 'trying to start a new fight about a long settled issue, the woman's right to access to birth control, all while American voters are interested in the economy'. And that is exactly what Joe Scarbouro accused Republicans of doing on his Friday show 10 minutes into it. It was like Obama wrote his script.
I think Dems planned this all along. Make these moves then claim that the opposition to them are Republicans the ones starting these side battles. It looks like a planned trap to me.
Now Rush (since this thread is about him) really lightened it up by saying it was really all about Sandra's paid (or free) access to sex. Watching the libs play him on ditto-cam and act shocked on camera is priceless staged drama, especially when Matthews played it to Sandra on camera yesterday for her 'reaction'. Play up the victim woman 'who is just trying to help other woman' theme. Don't forget that Obama phone call to her thanking her for her work.
WTG....you did good.
“It does not matter if your hero is Eleanor Roosevelt or Margaret Thatcher,” said Ms. Savino, “this is about treating women with dignity and respect.”
Where were these hypocritical lying $@&*)$%#$ when the media and leftists were slimeing Sarah Palin, Michele Bachmann, etc???
WHERE WERE THEY???
Probably hiding under the same damn rock they just slithered out of.
The hell with them and any like them, they are just pandering Democrat tools.
“where I come from, it is considered ungentlemanly to call any woman a slut.
Really? You come from a place that has wussies for men that also have no standards?? Why does the word exist if your men are afraid to use it?”
Fear has nothing to do with it. It’s simple courtesy. Do you think Ronald Reagan would have called her a slut?
A gentleman would have found a better way to make his point. Rush himself has admitted he was wrong to call her a “slut”, in case you hadn’t noticed.
>> “apologize to all women” for calling a Georgetown University Law student a “slut”
LOL, Benjamen Franklin RIGLOL.
You’re absolutely correct.
Here's mine to Sleep Number:
You dropped Rush???? IF IT WASN'T FOR RUSH, THERE WOULD PROBABLY NOT BE MORE THAN 4 OR 5 DOZEN PEOPLE IN THE COUNTRY WHO EVER HEARD OF SLEEP NUMBER. You people are obviously too stupid to be running Sleep Number. Better get your resume's ready, boys and girls, because when your board of directors kicks your butts out on the street, you'll be sitting on the curb with the rest of the trash, wondering where your next meal will come from. Perhaps you can go to OCCUPY WALL STREET and the White House, AFL-CIO, ACORN or the Democrat National Committee will pay you $50 per day to carry a sign and scream at the injustice. OR, if you are a S-L-U-T, you may be able to talk some other SLUTS into letting you share their lamp post. Having worked for a mattress company, you'll enjoy finding a customer to take you to a motel to do it on a mattress. Doubt if you will find a Sleep Number, though, as I understand they buy their mattress' from Good Will.
To do the right thing, you should pass on the following link to your employees, because with no Sleep Number sales (due to your firing RUSH), they will just be another statistic on the Unemployed List Survey and applying for food stamps. BUT, there is no doubt in my mind that 70 to 80 percent of them listen to RUSH now, and, will continue to do so. I feel for them, as they have to suffer because you're so STUPID.

Tootle Doo, Toots. I'm going to Cracker Barrel for a steak and egg breakfast. By the way, there may be a Soup Kitchen in your area that you can find a meal next week. I suggest you don't wear your 3-piece, though, as the other bums will be laughing at you.
“A gentleman would have found a better way to make his point. “
Again, why have words you are afraid to use? If she is afraid to be called a slut then she ought not to be one.
This PC BS has gotten this nation into terrible trouble because we are afraid to use so much as harsh words as discipline.
Rush apologized for reasons we do not know. He always as a game plane, so attributing his apology to “he was wrong” isn’t said from facts.
Didn't happen until his sponsors started pulling out. I'd love to know how much the whores at the Mustang Ranch pay a year. If it's under $1000 a year, then Ms. Fluke is the King Tut of Sluts.
Sandra Fluke needs to get a vibrator and buzz off into the sunset.
“Rush insults ALL women?! According to WHO? YOU???”
No, according to the mainstream media. I was describing how the Alinskites took Rush’s usage of the words “slut” and “prostitute”, and put their spin on the controversy to force the self-described leader of the conservative movement into an apology.
“Didn’t happen until his sponsors started pulling out.”
So you’re saying that Rush has the courage of his convictions so long as it doesn’t cost him any money. I think more of Rush than that. He realized he overstepped.
Money talks for all these guys. Beck was driven off FOX News because his advertisers pulled out. You don’t make millions and millions of dollars by being a pure idealist. I’m not saying Rush could change his core principles because of a financial reason, but he would certainly buckle over a side comment like this.
skank ho fluke probably blows the wad on the makeup and the f**k me pumps...
that or at least a nymphomaniac if she is in fact, proven to be monagamous with one significant other. but she looks like the bikini girl in the lmfao song “i’m in miami trick”
Last week, I did some math based on the claim that she spends $1000, the least amount I’ve heard, per year on birth control. If you then figure the most expensive birth control, condoms, it breaks down to $180 per month on condoms.
I won’t go into all the math, but if you figure on 20 minutes per encounter, needing one condom each, she spends 20 hours each week in encounters. TWENTY HOURS. No one male can do that. Really, no one female can.
How can she walk?
Where does she find the time?
And most importantly,
What vitamin does she take and are they sold OTC?
methinks the fluke girl also likes meth... thats the only thing i know of that i’ve heard of that could give someone that kinda endurance.... for someone as intelligent as she supposedly is, i guess she has to run the $100 bill through the nearest trailer park for her “vitamins”...
