Send Perfect "F__ck You" To This Bunch Of Old White Guys- Sandra Fluke For-Time Person of the Year
Please please please make Sandra Fluke Time Person of the Year. It sends the perfect “fuck you” to this bunch of old white guys, and it might also get Rush Limbaugh to take up the hillybilly heroin again.
Time Nominates Sandra Fluke For "Person Of The Year" Award
Time Magazine Announces Fluke As A Candidate For "Person Of The Year." Time magazine announced on November 26 that Fluke is a candidate for its "Person of the Year" for 2012, citing her advocacy for women's rights, her "poise and maturity" in dealing with attacks from the right-wing media, and her influence on promoting reproductive rights as a key issue in the presidential campaign:
The daughter of a conservative Christian pastor, Sandra Fluke, 31, became a women's-rights activist in college and continued her advocacy as a law student at Georgetown. After she complained about being denied a chance to testify at a Republican-run House hearing on insurance coverage for birth control, Rush Limbaugh called Fluke a "slut." Democrats and many Republicans reacted with outrage, and the left made Limbaugh's slur Exhibit A in what they called a GOP "war on women." Fluke, meanwhile, weathered the attention with poise and maturity and emerged as a political celebrity. Democrats gave her a national-convention speaking slot as part of their push to make reproductive rights a central issue in the 2012 presidential campaign -- one that helped Barack Obama trounce Mitt Romney among single women on Election Day.
