This story is a bit old, but I was just clued into it today by Chicks on the Right. Apparently, Bill O’Reilly wondered what the DNC would drop on Fluke during their convention. Such suggestive statements are verboten in a land with no free speech, so Fluke opined on Ed Schultz’s MSNBC show that O’Reilly’s joke was “clearly offensive.”
Let’s break this down here. Sandra Fluke, a woman whose name we only know because Rush Limbaugh called her a slut that one time, complained to Ed Schultz, a man who once called Laura Ingraham a slut, that a joke whose assumed punchline is “inflated condoms” was “clearly offensive,” even though the only reason she came to Limbaugh’s attention in the first place is because she gave Actual Congressional Testimony complaining about the allegedly unaffordability of birth control and demanding that Congress Do Something about it, and even though Planned Parenthood dresses up a woman as a birth control dispenser to stalk Mitt Romney apparently without offending Fluke.
Just take all that in for a moment. Yeah.
You know what I find clearly offensive? That Sandra Fluke thinks she speaks for me.
