Because no one's dared to stand up to the bully, Limbaugh has gotten away with vilifying and slandering anyone he dislikes. Because no one in the GOP has the cajones to denounce his outrageous attacks, like all bullies, Limbaugh felt encouraged to foreswear any restrains whatsoever in his personal bigoted attacks on the president, his wife, and anyone who holds a different political viewpoint. That's why he felt comfortable in calling Georgetown law student, Sandra Fluke, a "slut" and a "prostitute" for appearing before a Congressional committe on women's health issues, and no one in the GOP would denounce him.
President of Georgetown University, John DeGioia and President of the United States, Barack Obama both called Ms. Fluke and told her they support her, and Mr. Obama said her parents should "be proud of her."
And it is understandable why President Obama would call and support this young woman. President Obama is the father of two daughters. It must have saddened and then angered him to hear the cowardly demagogue, Limbaugh, from the safety of a radio studio, attack this young woman and denounce her as a "slut" and "prostitute" to his millions of listeners. Acting as any loving father would, Mr. Obama defended and thanked Ms. Fluke for her courage and dignity as she sustained three days of Limbaugh's filthy slanders.
No good will come of Limbaugh's spineless and dastardly attacks on this woman. No man or woman that I respect will fail to see that Limbaugh's desperate and craven attempt to make the national debate about contraception about him is nothing more than a gutlessly cynical grab for headlines at the expense of a young woman's reputation.
Give a loud-mouthed bully enough rope, and hopefully, the miscreant will hang himself.
I do believe, finally, the swine, Rush Limbaugh, has done so!
