I guess the GOP is hoping that the American people forget that only a few months ago House Republicans held hearings on contraception and barred women for testifying before Congress. Likewise, Rush Limbaugh spoke in support of House Republicans by attacking Sandra Fluke as a prostitute and slut.
Rush Limbaugh Doubles Down On Sandra Fluke, Offering ‘As Much Aspirin to Put Between Her Knees As She Wants’
The social issues debate re-ignited on Capitol Hill today when senators killed a proposal to throw out President Obama’s contraception mandate. Conservative commentator Rush Limbaugh was thrust into the center of the debate after he called the woman who was denied the right to speak on the controversial all-male conception panel at a hearing last month a “slut” on his show Wednesday. The issue heated up more today when Limbaugh took his comments even further.
The conservative radio host’s remarks sparked an angry backlash from House Democrats, including House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi of California and Rep. Carolyn Maloney, D-N.Y. But instead of heeding their requests for an apology, Limbaugh doubled down against what he called the “conniption fit” of the House Democrats.
Echoing Foster Friess, the single largest donor to the pro- Rick Santorum’s super PAC, Limbaugh said that he would “happily buy Fluke all the aspirin she wants.”
Limbaugh was referencing the comment Friess made in February when he said the “gals” in “his day” put aspirin between their legs in lieu of contraception. Limbaugh then expanded his offer to include the university’s entire female student body.
