Last week, I posted about Bill O'Reilly's nasty suggestion that contraceptives would fall from the ceiling, instead of balloons, when Sandra Fluke speaks at the Democratic convention this week because there's "There’s only one reason this woman is speaking. One and one only." Last night, Fluke reacted with grace and poise to that remark on the Ed Show.
Fluke said, "I think it's clearly offensive to see a bunch of guys sitting around laughing about dropping condoms on a woman. Obviously, that's offensive. But I try to just not pay attention to it, look past it, and focus on the policies that I care about. I’m doing what I can for the President, and frankly, I think it’s pretty clear that there’s more than one reason that I’m speaking at the convention."
One small correction to Fluke: When O'Reilly made those comments about Fluke, the other two men with him, James Rosen and John Roberts, were clearly uncomfortable and O'Reilly was the only one laughing.
I’m noting on my ratings research that they’re still going down at a rate rivaled only by Hannity, and the RNC didn’t help him enough to affect the month for the better. Unless he can pull off another ratings revival, he’s done- and quite frankly, I don’t see him impressing the demographics who finally had it with him but good enough to do that.
Do any of you?
