For anyone who hasn’t been paying attention, a Georgetown law student, Sandra Fluke, recently testified before the House on coverage of contraception by insurance companies. Ergo, Limbaugh took this and did a smear job on Fluke, calling her a “slut” and a “prostitute”.
Although Limbaugh made a non-apology apology, national advertisers, under some pressure on social media sites such as Twitter, are canceling their ad contracts in near droves. Two radio stations have also cancelled Limbaugh’s show, and it’s beginning to look like Rush’s radio show may go the way of Glenn Beck’s television show. And that is a very good thing.
So anyway, Stewart threw on a hazmat thingy to protect himself from Limbaugh’s bile, and dove into the slime.
Best line from the takedown:
“To the people who are upset about their hard-earned tax money going to things they don't like: Welcome to the f*cking club. Reimburse me for the Iraq war and oil subsidies, and diaphragms are on me!”
