Sandra Fluke Responds To Limbaugh's Over The Top Sexist Remarks

Ed Schultz spoke to the Georgetown University Law student Sandra Fluke after Rush Limbaugh doubled down on his sexist remarks from the day before where he called Fluke a slut and a prostitute. Today he went so far as to demand that "women post sex tapes online if they use insurance-covered birth control."

When asked what she thought of Limbaugh's remarks, Fluke responded that this is the sort of language used to try to silence women and thanked everyone she had heard from for the outpouring of support and that it's clear from their responses that women are not going to be silenced by the likes of Rush Limbaugh.

Fluke again handled herself with grace and dignity on Ed's show. Schultz didn't ask her about this, but I hope she's got an attorney and plans on suing Limbaugh. A little earlier in the broadcast, Schultz asked where the the CEO of Clear Channel, John Hogan, was in condemning Limbaugh's remarks and said he ought to be ashamed of himself. I couldn't agree more. Here's their contact page if you'd like to ask them.

UPDATE: Media Matters has more from Limbaugh's radio program this week and holy cow it just gets worse and that's putting it mildly. This man has literally jumped off a cliff with his hate filled rhetoric towards Fluke -- Limbaugh's Misogynistic Attack On Georgetown Law Student Continues With Increased Vitriol.

And Rep. Jackie Speier is calling for a boycott of Limbaugh's sponsors. Good for her. The man should not be allowed to continue to pollute our airways with this garbage.
