Limbaugh Calls Student Denied Spot At Contraception Hearing A ‘Slut’
Conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh called Sandra Fluke, the Georgetown student whom House Republicans wouldn’t let testify at a contraception hearing last week, a “slut” and a “prostitute” today, because, Limbaugh argued, she’s having “so much sex” she needs other people to pay for it:

LIMBAUGH: What does it say about the college co-ed Susan Fluke [sic] 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 she can’t afford the contraception. She wants you and me and the taxpayers to pay her to have sex.

While it’s probably not even worth engaging with Limbaugh on the facts, Fluke’s testimony was about a friend who is a lesbian and needed birth control for non-sexual medical reasons, so he’s only wrong about three times over, and offensive many more times over than that.

Later, he feigned a walk-back, saying “OK, she’s not a slut, she’s round-heeled” — a colloquialism for a loose woman.

That's good money on a rocket. Surely there is a derelict ship to be scuttled in the middle of the ocean instead.

But money well spent if it gets these jerks off the planet!

I'm all for the derelict ship, though! Either option works well for me. :D

But that gives them a chance to come back to land and be all miracle survivors and shit.

But we don't want to poison the ocean, do we?

(Edit: grammar)

There's one flaw in your plan - shit tends to float.
