Sandra Fluke, the 31-year-old law school graduate who first garnered attention by trying to crash a Capitol Hill committee hearing on religious freedom, is now visiting the Treasure Coast.
Fluke arrived in Fort Pierce to prop up the bruised campaign and manhood of Patrick Murphy, the Democratic challenger for Florida’s 18th Congressional District. Both were in need of nurturing after Murphy’s forum dustup with his Republican opponent, the very outspoken and quick-on-his-feet U.S. Rep. Allen West earlier this month.
“Contrary to some recent rumors, I don’t actually support just any guy who comes up to me,” Fluke said of Murphy in a dated reference to Rush Limbaugh calling her a “slut.”
The Limbaugh comment (a) wasn’t all that recent, and (b) he apologized for it almost immediately afterwards.
Limbaugh used the slur after Fluke claimed victimhood in the “war on women,” a battle she contrived because she had no one to pay for her contraceptives.
After tasting the fruit of notoriety for her allotted 15 minutes, she wanted more. Fluke then extended her stay at the center of attention by expanding the horizon on her phony “war on women.”
She traveled from coast to coast, making one speech after another excoriating America for — are you ready for this? — silencing women.
Fluke’s travels eventually took her to Charlotte, N.C., where she made her “silenced women” pitch at the Democratic National Convention. But the faithful weren’t necessarily buying what she was selling.
Upon hearing Fluke’s speech, Democratic strategist and Daily Beast writer Kirsten Powers let loose her wrath with a series of tweets, including:
I hope that any young girl who saw that Fluke speech has someone to tell her it’s a lie: women are powerful and have freedom of speech.
Also didn’t Obama stay silent when Bill Maher attacked various women?
I find this speech so offensive as a woman. The idea that women are silenced victims.
Sandra Fluke should visit Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Pakistan, Afghanistan and then see how she feels about how the US treats women
Fluke’s Charlotte appearance reminded someone at
for Romney of Mia Love’s speech at the Republican National Convention, and he compared the two in a meme.
“By age 30 married, 2 kids, elected to Saratoga Springs, Colo, City Council,” he said of Love.
Of Fluke he said, “By age 30 still in college, demanding government force the school to pay for her birth control.”
U.S. Rep. Joe Walsh, R-Ill., noted for both brevity and directness, said it best and with the fewest number of words: “Sandra Fluke, you’re 31. Get a job.” To Walsh’s wisdom, I can add not a thing.
