Just when I thought anyone over at Fox could not manage to out do Bill O'Reilly with being more ridiculous with their flame throwing towards Sandra Fluke and her testimony before a Democratic forum that Darrell Issa refused to allow during the House's actual hearing on the contraceptives mandate in the Affordable Care Act, Megyn Kelly manages to one up him with the stupidity.

The gist of the argument here from Kelly and guest Lars Larson is that heaven forbid anyone who attends a university that will eventually earn as high of a salary as Sandra Fluke might possibly be making after she graduates and who can afford to pay her tuition, should have a right to bitch if they're discriminated against with their health care coverage for claims of religious reasons that don't even make an ounce of sense economically for that insurance provider.

Par for the course, it's really obvious that the pundits over at Fox are all reading off of the same playbook and repeating the same talking points. Megyn Kelly might not be the bully that Bill O'Reilly is when she does segments like this, but it doesn't make her any less of a tool for Fox that is obviously just looking out for the interests of the Republican Party and repeating their talking points ad nauseum.
