The Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee has this online petition for Rush Limbaugh to apologize for his recent comments on Sandra Fluke, the Georgetown law student who testified in favor of contraception. (I’d like a petition to get him off the air, personally, but this is a start).

Here’s an excerpt from the petition’s description of some comments of his that I missed.

“It makes her a slut, right … a prostitute … Miss Fluke, and the rest of you Feminazis, here’s the deal. If we are going to pay for your contraceptives … we want you to post the videos online so we can all watch.”

    1. @davisoftheapes1 That’s a good point. It’s sad that whenever we want to insult a woman for ideological, intellectual or political reasons we have to revert to something like “bitch”, “cunt” or “slut”. So many people are not aware of how underhandedly misogynistic that is; I used to not understand it myself so I’ve called Palin a “bitch” before, even when I was hating her for say, charging Wasilla rape victims for their own rape kits. Maher isn’t the most feminist man out there, but I’ve heard good stuff from him, and he really should know better. You’re right about Maher. It’s just that this really channelled the GOP’s stance and hit a nerve.

  1. Mr Limbaugh needs to understand what it means to have the rights of all people respected. This woman does not deserve to be treated in such a mean-spirited manner
