LOS ANGELES, March 5, 2012―One minute Sandra Fluke was an insignificant college student. She was also a bleeding heart activist involved in every politically correct cause known to personkind. She is the new breed of womyn.
Yet at her core Sandra Fluke is as ordinary as every other person that shares her ideology. She is a liberal who wants free stuff. The free stuff she wants is contraception.
Like the Clinton impeachment trial, this is not about sex. It is about choices. Fluke wants the freedom to make sexual choices without worrying about the consequence of unwanted pregnancy.
That is her right.
She wants other people to pay for her choices. That is not right.
Regardless of what Rush Limbaugh said, Sandra Fluke is not a victim. In fact, she is now a celebrity who will make millions of dollars if she plays her cards right. She should send Limbaugh a thank-you note for turning her into a somebody.
Limbaugh referred to her as a “slut” on his radio program. The remark crossed the line, and he apologized. However, an “I’m sorry” is not good enough for the many on the left demanding that he be fired. They’ve wanted him fired every day since he first broke the Left’s control over all media some two decades past.
If we are to have any semblance of fairness, if Limbaugh should be fired, then so should nearly every host on MSNBC. The network, catering to the anti-conservative left, features Ed Schultz, who infamously called Laura Ingraham a slut. Shultz only issued a half-hearted apology after remaining defiant as long as possible.
Sandra Fluke was the victim of an inappropriate verbal attack; there is no argument about that. Yet when Limbaugh apologized, Fluke had to decide whether to go back to her private existence or to cash in like a new reality television star.
It is obvious that she plans to cash in.
She refuses to accept Limbaugh’s apology, and there are reports that she is contemplating suing him. A lawsuit? For what damages? How has she suffered?
Liberals do not need actual damages to sue. They just need to have their feelings hurt. Shirley Sherrod sued Andrew Breitbart until he dropped dead. Maybe his estate should sue her for causing the stress that may have killed him.
Through it all, Sandra Fluke is the left’s new hero. The following things will take place as long as Fluke continues flaying Limbaugh:
- She will get offered a box seat at the Democratic National Convention.
- She will be the biggest liberal female celebrity since Norma McCorvey became Jane Roe.
- She will get offers to pose for Playboy, Penthouse, Maxim, and many other magazines. Women’s health magazines will make her their cover girl.
- Sensitive emasculated Beta-Males all over the country will be inundating her with flowers, candy, and perhaps marriage proposals. She will not have a dateless Saturday night for the rest of her life.
- She will now be considered an expert on health issues, and most likely will be offered to host a television program on CNN or MSNBC.
- She will appear in campaign ads for Barack Obama, and her image will be used to promote everything from the Chevy Volt (given to her for free) to Occupy Wall Street. Congressional panels, conceding how boring healthcare discussions are, will solicit her opinion on everything from Israel to tax cuts.
- She will receive a book deal, which very well could become a television movie deal.
Let’s be clear, Sandra Fluke was an innocent victim. Yet the minute she rejected Limbaugh’s apology, she went from victim to exploiter.
There is a way Fluke could blow her chance to be the Liberal darling. She could graciously accept Limbaugh’s apology and move on. However the Left would abandon her and turn on her.
The Left needs her. Limbaugh has always been their enemy, and this is the first time the Leftist sharks have even seen a drop of blood from the usually sure-mouthed radio host.
She is no longer a victim. She is now a typical liberal martyr. Her appearance on “The View” is the first step on her fame tour. She is a law student at Georgetown. If anybody has learned how to game the system to their advantage, it would be a DC law student. She could be the next female version of John Edwards (before his fall) if she plays this smart.
Carolyn McCarthy saw her husband tragically murdered. She parlayed that sympathy into a congressional seat. Dianne Feinstein saw her boss get murdered. She rode that sympathy train to a Senate Seat.
The Kennedy’s are still milking the JFK legacy almost five decades later.
Given how delicate liberal feminists are, Limbaugh’s assault on Fluke was the verbal equivalent of murder. At least the left is certainly acting this way.
Like a typical liberal, Fluke could succeed as an anti-Limbaugh. He made his money, power, and fame by having actual talent and working hard. She could make hers by playing the victim card and leeching off of his success.
After all, remember how she started her fame train. She wanted free stuff. Now she is going to get lots of it. Sandra Fluke could have a bright political career as long as she drags this story out.
