As Rush Limbaugh hemorrhages support in the wake of his incredibly misogynistic attacks on contraception activist Sandra Fluke, Fox’s Bill O’Reilly and Monica Crowley did their part for the right-wing hate machine by continuing to malign Fluke. You may recall that last week, O’Reilly echoed Limbaugh’s attack by suggesting Fluke is a slut for wanting contraception covered by health insurance. Last night, Crowley and O’Reilly echoed Limbaugh’s off-the-wall, baseless accusation that the Fluke controversy was some kind of left-wing conspiracy. How else could she succeed so well, they wondered? Memo to Bill and Monica: The unhinged reaction from your kind was a bigger gift to Fluke’s argument than anything she and the left could have planned for.
O’Reilly began the theorizing after noting that President Obama’s approval rate is up among women. “Somebody in the Democratic apparatus… some person” decided to get Fluke in front of Congress to deflect attention from Obama’s “controversial” contraception mandate. Translation: The right-wing hate mongering of the mandate not only didn’t work, it solidly backfired when Limbaugh went after Fluke – so there must be a pony be a way to blame the left!
Monica “Obama made me eat a cheeseburger” Crowley said, “This whole thing has been orchestrated by the left… just like Occupy Wall Street was.” She and O’Reilly went on to debate just how that could have happened. O'Reilly asked for anyone with information on that Democratic mastermind to contact him.
Don't wait by the phone, Bill!. If what you say is true - that the Democrats orchestrated not allowing Fluke to testify before Congress, then having Limbaugh relentlessly smear her so that she could stay in the news, look like a heroine – and help get President Obama re-elected - and the Democrats are really that ingenious, that competent and that politically savvy, isn't it a bit tough to argue they don’t deserve re-election?
No stupids, it all went wrong because Rush is a dumbfuck misogynist who speaks a little too loudly on behalf of you and your ilk.
