I was not impressed with Jennifer Granholm's new show, The War Room on Current TV after watching some of the first few airings and haven't watched much of it since, although I have continued to record the show since it began airing not long ago. I'm glad I did after getting a chance to watch this portion of Thursday's show.

Thanks to DU's Amerigo Vespucci for drawing my attention to this segment where Granholm did a great job of calling out Limbaugh for his sexist remarks about Sandra Fluke, and she also did something almost no one in our mainstream media has done, which is to connect Limbaugh to Mitt Romney and point out that his former company, Bain Capital, owns Clear Channel.

Granholm also did a really terrific follow up segment to her initial outrage over Limbaugh's remarks with Professor of Africana Studies at Brown University's Tricia Rose. You can watch that video below the fold here.

Here's more from Current TV -- Tricia Rose on contraception debate: ‘This is an absolute war on women’s bodies.’ :

Brown University professor Tricia Rose puts the Blunt Amendment and Rush Limbaugh’s recent attacks on Sandra Fluke into context. Rose says that recent legislation on contraception funding appears to “penalize women for the entire sex act.” It’s a battle against women’s rights that is not accidental, she adds. “This is an absolute war on women’s bodies,” Rose says. “These aren’t random wildfires. This is the work of a collective group of arsonists, and they are setting women’s rights on fire across the board.”
