    Here's a good example of the liberal press

    On the subject of Rush Limbaugh....What repercussions did Bill Maher suffer for calling Sarah Palin the "C-word". Where is the outrage by the media? I don't remember the President admonishing him for that. Maybe I missed that. After all, Rush and Maher are both entertainers.

    Rush was wrong to use the words he said.  It lessens his argument.  Fluke is wrong on the issue, and no one is focusing on it, instead, they are focusing on offending the sensibilities of this frail women, at least that's what the left would have you believe.

    On your core point:  the left sees calling Palin that word as truth, therefore, no outrage.  Face it, the left is only interested in pushing their fascist ideology, and will use any group, feminists included, only when it is useful. the rest of the time, they are sidelined.  I can't believe the feminists fall for this.  If the feminists organizations were really interested in pushing the feminist agenda, they would be ardent conservatives, where ideas and individual freedom are the measure, not radical socialism.

    According to Jay Carney:

    "I think he thinks they were reprehensible. They were disappointing. It is disappointing that -- that kind of, those kind of personal and crude attacks could be leveled against someone like this young law school student who was simply expressing her opinion on the matter of public policy..."

    So yes, I'd say that the President admonished Rush. The same President, mind you, that called the tea party people "tea-b-ggers" so I don't know how much stock you should place in his genuine outrage over "personal and crude attacks."

    Just sayin.

    Who says she's wrong?  You?!  Rush?!

    Even IF she's wrong, what gives rush or anyone else the right (or credibility) to impugn her character thus...??


    Even now, he's trying to scapegoat the "evil left" and absolve himself. 

    Doesn't do much for his so-called "argument", either.

    You're trying to compare Ms. Palin - former gov, foxnews pundit and media celebrity - to a lowly law student??

    Talk about a false equivalency...


    And again, Rush is an 'entertainer'...except when he isn't, right...??

    The difference is that Ms. Palin was never presented as being anything except what she was.

    You're joking, right??

    What difference does it make how they "were presented"...?

    Newsflash: the ONLY reason anyone knows Ms. Fluke is because the GOP blocked her from testifying before Congress as requested.


    And I'll leave aside - for now - the circuitous way Ms. Palin was rolled out to both the media and the body politic

    Actually Matty, she and the Democrats caused everyone to know her. It was the Democrats who offered up another acceptable candidate to speak to a committee discussing religious freedoms and the impact of government forcing religious organizations to pay for products that are against their religious teachings.
    When that person bowed out the day before the hearing, the Democrats tried to insert Ms. Fluke who was an activist. Mr. Issa correctly rejected her as she had no religious standing. She and the Democrats attended the hearing and on queue got up and walked out in protest. She put herself into the spotlight.

    Right.  The verbal comparison of what Maher said about Palin and what Rush said about Fluke is in the same realm but to any reasonable human being there is a big difference in a political entertainer saying nasty things about a Vice Presidential candidate vs. saying nasty things about a citizen testifying before congress.

    Right.  None of which has any similarity at all to Ms. Palin.  False equivalence.

    Personally, I reject the 'religious freedom' framing, because contraception is first and foremost a personal and public health issue...which was the whole point of including it in the ACA.  Despite this, exemptions for religious organizations were made anyway, so what was Issa trying to prove exactly?  And what was to be gained by refusing an opposing viewpoint??

    And not for nothing, but I fail to see how any of Rush's personal criticisms of Ms. Fluke mesh with the notion of "religious freedom".

    Rush's rants are not about religious freedom, his deal is that he doesn't think his tax dollars should pay for the Sl*T to have sex.  The notion that this whole issue was initially and primarily about Catholic organizations, who don't pay taxes, is apparently lost on Rush.  As to his objection as to how his tax dollars are used, well Rush, you are not the first person to be annoyed with how your tax dollars are spent.

    The government can't mandate a church to go against it's beliefs, period.  I is a shame that this women chose such a platform, chose to go to a catholic school, chose to show her distain for those that are educating her.  A spoiled brat at best.  Yes, her ACTIONS show she is not only wrong, but disingenuous.  The left has manufactured this outrage against the GOP with complete lies and falsehoods.  Where is the GOP legislation to repeal abortions, contraception, put women in burkhas? Where is it?

    The left have shown themselves to be complete liars on this issue.  Fluke is their tool.

    Despite this, Rush was wrong to use those terms, as I have previously stated.  I hope you get this point this time so I don't have to repeat myself, AGAIN.

    a lowly 30 year old law student who has spent her twenties heading up radical feminist organizations, or is she just a frail vessel from the left that is experiencing the vapors as a result of having her thoughts challenged?

    I personally could not possibly care any less about what Rush has to say.  He is either A.  An act, intened to rile up the far right base or B. A sexist, racist bigot.  In either case, his words carry no weight. 

    The only significance to Rush is the perceived power he carries over the GOP, which is evidenced by the cowardly repsonses of GOP presidential candidates to Rush's most recent hateful remarks.

    When the hearing was convened the exemption was NOT in place. It was because of the hearing and other vocal outrage that the exemption was put in.
    He was not "trying to prove anything". The Democrats were trying to rally the lambs and make up a new outrage since abortion no longer does it. They succeeded as you and many others bought their BS hook line and sinker!
    He did not refuse an "opposing view"! My lord do you people read anything but Democrat rags? He refused an opinion of someone with nothing to add to the topic of the hearing. Again, there was another "opposing view" person who backed out at the last minute. My guess is not by accident. The Dems then tried to co-opt the hearing and make it about women's reproductive rights.
    LOL, keep throwing those darts! At some point you may hit on a legitimate point! Rush and religious freedom have nothing to do with one another. Just like the hearing and women's rights had nothing to do with each other.

    I guess it was lost on you too! It was/is about religious freedom and the right of religious organizations to adhere to their religious teachings.

    I already said Rush was wrong to call her those things in a prior post.  do I need to repeat myself every time I post?  It does not however, strengthen Flukes argument.  She is wrong, and being disingenuous.  she is at best a fool, at worst, a pawn in Obama's cynical re-election campaign. 

    It is a non issue.

    Again, you're way off base.

    Nobody is demanding the church to do anything.  They are exempt.  Hospitals and schools, however, are a different matter.

    The "left" didn't force Rush to say what he did, despite his lame protests.  He extended this kerfuffle in his usual, egomaniacal way.

    I don't agree that there is a "war on women" as some on the left say, but it's equally ignorant for the right to claim the mandate was exclusively about religion, not elemental health care.  OR, that POTUS is somehow declaring a "war on religion".  Cast aside thy bogus indignation....
