Santorum: Limbaugh Is An Entertainer, Comment Is Absurd

Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum says radio host Rush Limbaugh was "being absurd" when he suggested a college student record sex tapes and share them in exchange for contraception.

Santorum told CNN on Friday that Limbaugh is an "entertainer" taking an absurd point of view.

Georgetown University law student Sandra Fluke testified before a House committee last week on the administration's policy requiring religion-affiliated institutions to give employees access to health insurance that covers birth control.

Limbaugh said Fluke's insistence on wanting contraception made her a "slut" and a "prostitute." He said if Fluke wanted contraception, he wanted something in return, such as a sex tape.

President Barack Obama, members of Congress and women's groups have supported Fluke in the wake of criticism aimed at Limbaugh's comments.

    Come on Rick. How about talking about something substantive like jobs or the economy. Is that so hard? Remember when he complained that those Liberal Professors gave him lower grades because he is a Conservative? Well a quick look up proves that is also a lie....he graduated with honors for two of his degrees. This man is twisted. Why doesn't this clown quit and go away? oops! I meant go home.;)

    Truth is, Limbaugh would be a better President than all the Republican losers that are running, and way better than that pathetic excuse for a President that we have now!

    Condoms, at the most, are 50 cents each. If she (her partner) used one a day, every day for a year... that's only $ 182 What is she doing to spend $ 3000/yr ??

    What really needs to be address in this ridiculous debate is the propetual ignorance of the right wing conservatives and religious community that refuses to understand the other theraputic uses for progestin-containing oral and injectable contraceptives. There are serious chronic conditions, such as endometrosis and ovarian cysts, that affect the female reproductive organs as well as surrounding tissue, that are often treated successfully with these important drugs. To refuse these treatments for women is a deliberate act discrimination no matter what your religious faith.

    I would think the group of people who SHOULD be the most offended by Mr. Limbaughs comments, other than Ms. Fluke, is his listeners. What he's telling them is, " You're so ignorant you'll believe anything I say, no matter how lame-brained". Personally I'd be offended by that, the fact that they're not and are probably repeating his hogwash word for word says a lot about the level of intelligence of hate-radio listeners.

    Normal people know he's an entertainer, but his "dittoheads" who bask in being called imbe ciles who can't think for themselves, don't know it. They need him to tell them what they should think, hence the name "dittoheads"

    I would rather pay for contraceptives than pay for unwanted children through the welfare programs, more people should be on them. Why should I have to pay for blood pressure and insulin medications for obese people? Why should my tax dollars go to heart surgeries and constant treatments for them? For lung cancer treatments for smokers, etc, etc. Those are all life style choices. When compared to the cost of heart disease treatments, chemo and the rest, a few birth control pills are very cheap.

    Women are the largest voting block in the nation. The Republicans are digging themselves into a hole on this issue. They are so busy trying to be against anything the President is for, that they are alienating the women in this country who vote and don't want the Government telling us what we can and can't do with our bodies. Rush's comments should be offensive to any woman in this country. Undoubtedly though, the Republicans agree with him or they would condemn his statements.
