Rush Limbaugh Calls Georgetown Coed Sandra Fluke a Slut, Obama Calls Her to Offer Her Support

Does Rush Limbaugh think birth control works like Viagra?

His misogynistic assault on Georgetown University law student Sandra Fluke indicates that he does.

Fluke, who was prevented from testifying at Representative Darrell Issa's nearly all-male hearing on contraception, has been the target of a barrage of sexist invective from Limbaugh over her view that Georgetown's health plan should include birth control. On Wednesday, Limbaugh called Fluke a "slut" and a "prostitute," declared that "she's having so much sex she can't afford the contraception," and asserted that covering contraception was tantamount to paying her for sex. On Thursday, he blurted out, "If we are going to pay for your contraceptives, and thus pay for you to have sex, we want something for it, and I'll tell you what it is. We want you to post the videos online so we can all watch."
