In Case You Missed Rush Limbaugh Calling Georgetown Law Student Sandra Fluke A Slut

Here it is.

Watching Rush Limbaugh makes me think that the problem with the culture wars is that we on the feminist left spend too much of our energy protesting that we aren’t in a culture war and too little time getting our hands dirty fighting it.

Seriously, Republican Party:  you are going to tell *all* women who want and need access to birth control that they are “sluts” and still expect any woman to vote Republican? Do you expect the men who are in relationships with these women to vote Republican? Have you lost your freaking minds?

Rush Limbaugh (hysterically):  “The decision not to defend Roe v. Wade by a corrupt attorney general is another instance of a criminal administration!  What if Obama decided to stop defending Roe v. Wade?  How would the liberals like that?”

Tenured Radical (with unnerving calm):  “Supreme Court decisions and litigation are two entirely different things, Fat Stuff.  Under the constitution, the President and the Department of Justice don’t defend Supreme Court decisions, only laws that are defensible under the Constitution. No one  outside the Court, except radio personalities and issue-based non-profits, actually ‘defends’ Supreme Court decisions, and those defenses are either purely rhetorical or based in fund-raising appeals and organizing.  Instead, precedents are upheld, or not upheld by the court in response to new litigation, based on dissents and concurrences articulated and written…
