On his radio show Wednesday, Rush Limbaugh said this:

What does it say about the college co-ed Susan [sic] Fluke who goes before a Congressional committee and says 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. What does that make us? We’re the pimps.

I actually heard the bit myself and at the time laughed because quite frankly on the substance of the issue he has a philosophical point.  Rush usually illustrates “the absurd with absurdity” and the average libtard, who has no sense of humor, simply doesn’t get it.  I’m convinced that’s part of the reason why they hate Rush so much.

However, Rush did personally attack Fluke, the Georgetown University student who testified (btw–didn’t that used to be a Catholic school?), who he apologized to this weekend.  Yet, in his buckling under the public pressure he did say this:

I personally do not agree that American citizens should pay for these social activities. What happened to personal responsibility and accountability? Where do we draw the line? If this is accepted as the norm, what will follow?  In my monologue, I posited that it is not our business whatsoever to know what is going on in anyone’s bedroom nor do I think it is a topic that should reach a presidential level.

Again, on the substance I think he’s completely right.  Perhaps the government should refocus this issue onto itself, turning the 10th Amendment into a prophylactic to protect the states from the federal government impregnating, giving birth to and forcing the states to raise the “unwanted children” of more government largesse and crackpot social engineering.
