Lest we forget, what Limbaugh said about Sandra Fluke wasn’t just a single slip of the tongue; as Malia Litman delineates below, it went on for several days last week and, in between ‘sincere’ apologies, he’s continued his attacks this week, even though he’s cleaned them up. Following are videos of what Fluke actually said, her comments about Limbaugh’s vile attacks, and links to other articles on the subject.
… [P]eople from all around the country became involved by speaking out against the foul mouthed, offensive, prescription drug addict, Rush Limbaugh. It’s hard to believe that this vile excuse for a human being is the voice of the highest rated talk show in the country No wonder the country has so many challenges when the “voice” that is most often heard in America is a man who dropped out of college, abused prescription drugs, has been married four times, has no children, gets paid over $30,000,000 per year to spew his hatred, and has an estimated net worth over $400,000,000.00. People expressed their abhorrence of the comments of Mr. Rush Limbaugh regarding the testimony before Congress of Ms. Sandra Fluke, a 3rd year law student at Georgetown University.
Here is an account of the long list of quotes of Limbaugh regarding Ms. Fluke:
• “What does it say about the college coed Susan Fluke … who goes before a congressional committee and essentially says that she must be paid to have sex? What does that make her? It makes her a slut, right? It makes her a prostitute. She wants to be paid to have sex.”
• “She’s having so much sex, it’s amazing she can still walk”
• “Ms. Fluke, have you ever heard of not having sex?”
• “So Ms. Fluke, and the rest of you Feminazis, here’s the deal. If we are going to pay for your contraceptives, and thus pay for you to have sex, we want something for it. We want you post the videos online so we can all watch.”
• “I will happily buy Sandra Fluke all the aspirin she wants. … I will buy all of the women at Georgetown University as much aspirin to put between their knees as they want.”
• In response to a caller’s claim that for $5 his girlfriend can get a month’s worth of birth control at Wal-Mart: “That makes PMS almost worth it.”
• “She wanted to go there [Georgetown law] to stir it up. She was an anti-Catholic plant from the get-go on this”
• “This is flat-out thievery. It’s outright ridiculous that tax payers should pay for the personal sexual desires and habits of everybody, including women at Georgetown Law.”
• In a baby voice, mocking a cry: “I’m going broke having sex, I need the government to provide me condoms and contraceptives. It’s not fair.”
• “Who bought your condoms in junior high? Who bought your condoms in the sixth grade? Or your contraception? Who bought your contraceptive pills in high school?”
• “[She is] a woman who is happily presenting herself as an immoral, baseless, no-purpose-to-her life woman. She wants all the sex in the world whenever she wants it, all the time, no consequences. No responsibility for her behavior.”
• “It’s just a new welfare program. And ‘welfare’ is a bad word, and they can’t use it. They can’t sell it. So now it’s disguised—welfare disguised as women’s health. Or women’s reproductive rights.”
• “Can you imagine if you’re her parents, how proud of Sandra Fluke you would be? Your daughter goes up to a congressional hearing conducted by the Botox-filled Nancy Pelosi and testifies she’s having so much sex she can’t afford her own birth control pills and she agrees that Obama should provide them.”

Sandra Fluke’s opening statement to Congress that Limbaugh lied about:
By Stephen G. Webster
The Raw Story
March 6. 2012
An attorney says that Georgetown law School student Sandra Fluke could “definitely” sue Republican talk show host Rush Limbaugh for slander because she does not fit the legal definition of a public figure. On his radio show last week, Limbaugh called Fluke a “slut,” a “prostitute” and demanded that she publish “sex tapes” online in exchange for access to contraception coverage through her private insurance policy.
