Georgetown law student Sandra Fluke argued before a congressional committee that the insurance provided to her by Georgetown (a Catholic institution) should cover the cost of contraception . . . and, furthermore, that the government should mandate that it does. In response, Rush Limbaugh called her a “slut”—provoking howls of outrage from liberals. Limbaugh’s remark is indeed offensive. Not because of the language–where was the howling when Bill Maher called Sarah Palin a “dumb twat”?–but because of the logic. How does the desire to have your contraceptive costs covered by insurance equate–as Limbaugh claims it does–to the desire to be paid for sex? Go ahead and fault Limbaugh for his reasoning. But spare me the self-righteous indignation over the language.
