If calling Sandra Fluke a “slut” last year for her position on contraception wasn’t the epitome of “crazy and stupid and dangerous,” allow me to explain the obvious.
It was crazy because it invented an irrational connection between her private sex life and her political position. It was stupid because calling someone a name is intellectually lazy. Make an actual argument. And it was dangerous because it trafficked in the same kind of misogyny that liberals use when they blast conservative women for being sluts, prudes or sexually repressed. And that fell right into the well-crafted but dishonest “war on women” narrative that liberals had set up to (successfully) get President Obama re-elected.
Rush is free to say whatever he wants, but how was that productive? And why did anyone defend it?
Oy. What an imbecile. Rush didn’t simply call her a slut, you slut. Fluke testified at a congressional kabuki theater show and said she, as well as all women, needed hundreds of dollars a month for contraception. Rush did the math. If she seriously needed that amount of money, he mused, then she must be some sort of slut. The POINT WAS VALID. Fluke’s testimony was absurd and Rush countered with an absurdity. Cupp’s intellectual laziness prevents her from even trying to understand the point, or worse yet, prevents her from being unwilling to argue the point with obtuse leftards. She chooses to accept the left’s whining and bitching and validates it by running to the Times to take potshots at a conservative icon.
Fini. You’re now a stumble bum on Charlie Crist Boulevard. Good luck to ya.
