Yesterday, Rush Limbaugh said that a woman who went to DC to testify about contraception was a prostitute because she wanted health care plans to pay for contraception.
She wanted to testify that a friend of hers needed contraceptive medicines not strictly for preventing pregnancy, but instead to treat a medical condition (i.e. endometrial disease, hyperplasia, etc..).
Limbaugh was trying to say that this woman, a women denied the chance to testify, wanted to be "paid" to have sex because she wanted her employer to pay for contraceptive pills. But, what Mr. Limbaugh apparently didn't understand, and certainly he expects his listeners wouldn't understand, is that of course she wasn't asking anyone to pay her FOR sex, that's just a Limbaugh sized pile of crapola. She, even if she was wanting contraception herself, for the prevention of pregnancy, was wanting her employer to pay for CONTRACEPTION, she didn't want to be pregnant. She wasn't wanting money for sex. That's simply a disgusting, vulgar, base, immoral, and in this case, untrue slur from an ugly, vulgar voice.
This simple reality, I suspect Mr. Limbaugh knows. Yet still he said it.
By contrast, someone went to Jamaica, with illicit drugs which weren't HIS prescription. He shopped for prescriptions allegedly. So, following his logic, Mr. Limbaugh is a prostitute, because in fact he asked his employer to pay him, and to provide him with medical coverage, coverage which included paying for Viagra for himself. HE, the enormous hypocrite he is, expected his employer to pay for him to be able to have more sex. Yet he has the indecency to call someone else a prostitute.
Apparently expecting your listeners to pay for your Viagra, because it is those listeners who fund indirectly the radio stations on which Mr. Limbaugh is carried (paid for by advertisers who those listeners frequent) is "A OK", and males having sex in a another country with prostitutes IS ok, and using the pay of from your listeners FOR prositutes is OK, but asking your employer to help to pay for your medical plan, and part of that to help prevent pregnancy, THAT's not ok. Next time he complains about someone being a prostitute, Mr. Limbaugh, the world's biggest shill for big business, needs to consider whether he knows the word, and maybe even defines the word. He then needs to let his help/aides/someone do the rational thinking, because any man complaining about "prostitutes" when allegedly he wants to be "paid" (by his logic) to get an erection to allegedly screw ACTUAL prostitutes, well, that man has departed controlled thought.
Those of you who consider this man a "prophet" or "wise" in any realm, on any subject, need to seriously re-evaluate whether a man who so seriously and frequently uses such disgusting allegory, who so resolutely ignores basic logic and reason, is capable of actually offering you anything close to wisdom.
