Live Sex Shows – the new price of contraception in America?

So suggests Rush Limbaugh: A professional political gas pipe without peer.

America’s reigning Shock Jock supreme, Limbaugh’s enormous national political influence is feared by Republicans, loathed by Democrats, and adored by his daily audience of over 20 million listeners.

If Rush Limbaugh is not the de facto leader of today’s GOP, who is?

The power and importance of his daily noise is best captured by the silence it generates. When Rush, the single Republican with the largest loyal following in the country, can say the following without one – at time of publication – Congressionally elected Republican speaking out in condemnation, it’s a revealing day. For shame.

In case Limbaugh’s reference to Miss Fluke is unclear to you, some background. Sandra Fluke is the Georgetown law student who was earlier in the week denied the ability to address the hearing reviewing the issues surrounding contraceptive access and coverage provision under the new health insurance law. During the three hour hearing not one single woman was given the platform to address the congressional committee and attendant national media.

An iconic image captured the scene as the five male religious testifiers addressed the male committee chair Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) – while Miss Fluke, and every woman in America, had to settle for a spectator’s role.
