Rush Limbaugh, "Flashers" and Conservative Female Commentators

Rush Limbaugh attacks college student Sandra Fluke
I've had my suspicions for some time. But last week Rush Limbaugh exposed himself on national radio.  Now we know what he really is -- a flasher.  The man doesn't need a filthy trench coat with missing buttons, when he has the radio waves and a captive audience in the millions.  Why else would the 61 year old, thrice-divorced, oxycontin-addict  attack Georgetown University law student, Sandra Fluke on national syndicated radio, calling her a "slut" and "prostitute," while inviting the young woman to have a sexual romp on Youtube?  On February 23, 2012,  Ms. Fluke gave testimony  in front of the House Democrat Steering Committee, asserting that the high cost of contraception was causing students to struggle financially.  Limbaugh's reaction was to fantasize aloud that GOP presidential candidates, Rick Santorum and Newt Gingrich, could then  "spy on Sandra Fluke and interrupt her in mid-coitus, and then they'll make 'em get married. They'll make 'em get married and then make 'em have those babies and make 'em have 10,000 babies and then stay home..."



Sadly, I know where Rush Limbaugh is coming from, but I'm still stumped by female commentators like Michelle Malkin, Pam Geller, and Dana Loesch who sped to his rescue.    Michelle Malkin used "Got Slut?" in a guest blog headline and suggested Fluke suffered from "nymphomania."  Pam Geller wrote that Fluke is "banging it five times a day" and that "calling this whore a slut was a softball."   Dana Loesch complained the controversy surrounding Limbaugh's three-day "slut" campaign represented a "manufactured" story, even though Limbaugh felt compelled to apologize several days later.  What's up with these women?  Are these vulgar statements just another one of the many compromises they have learned to make, in order to scramble up the conservative ladder of female success?
