Harshing your mellow since 9/01

Another defeat

Great. Just great.

For over 20 years, I have illustrated the absurd with absurdity, three hours a day, five days a week.  In this instance, I chose the wrong words in my analogy of the situation. I did not mean a personal attack on Ms. Fluke.

I think it is absolutely absurd that during these very serious political times, we are discussing personal sexual recreational activities before members of Congress. I personally do not agree that American citizens should pay for these social activities. What happened to personal responsibility and accountability? Where do we draw the line? If this is accepted as the norm, what will follow? Will we be debating if taxpayers should pay for new sneakers for all students that are interested in running to keep fit?In my monologue, I posited that it is not our business whatsoever to know what is going on in anyone’s bedroom nor do I think it is a topic that should reach a Presidential level.

My choice of words was not the best, and in the attempt to be humorous, I created a national stir. I sincerely apologize to Ms. Fluke for the insulting word choices.

There’s so much to say about this, from so many angles, that I don’t even know where to start. But for now, Dave’s summary (via Glenn) will suffice:

The saga of Sandra Fluke (now being painted as some sort of hero to women) is a perfect example of why we needed Andrew (Breitbart).

Her testimony before Congress appears to have been very dishonest. Fluke’s story about her friend who was denied birth control pills despite a medical need unrelated to contraception seems unlikely to be true, and should be investigated — it seems implausible that reimbursement for a product that might be used for birth control would, or legally could, be denied someone with a medical need for it. And the claim students need $1000 per year for contraception is just flat-out untrue; birth control is generally around $20/month, and anyone can buy condoms for a dollar each, in the unlikely event a college student is unable to find free condoms, which cost nothing. And it’s not clear who misrepresented her age as 23 rather than 31, but it certainly gives the appearance of having been done to elicit sympathy.

So, she goes in front of Congress and lies, and the President of the United States personally telephones her and tells her how brave she was. For lying. (Some people the President hasn’t called to praise for bravery: the families of Brian Terry and others killed by the Fast and Furious gunrunning program, Joe the Plumber, Syrian pro-democracy activists). And the end result of all this is that… Rush Limbaugh is forced to apologize for jokingly suggesting Ms. Fluke must be having a lot of sex to need $3000 for contraception.

So, the issue in summary: lefty activist lies, President praises her for it, media pressure causes prominent righty to apologize.

Trust me, I’ll have more on this in a bit. But for now, as I say, Dave’s summary covers the whole dismal business.

  1. There was no need for Rush to apologize. His analogy was spot on. The incident exposes a BIG problem within corporations. They are gutless. In this case, Carbonite, Citrix, Legal Zoom, Quicken Loans, Sleep Number and Sleep Train Mattress Store and any others I missed all deserve the wrath of politically right-of-center consumers.
