No Fluke

Guess who I've been getting mail from?  Sandra Fluke. You remember her. She was the 30-year-old law school student who needed help from the government to get birth control.  She's running for state senate and I've received a few mailers already.

You might wonder what she's running on.  As far as I can tell from what she's sent, her greatest achievement was standing up to Rush Limbaugh*.  And that takes a lot of nerve in her circles--almost as much as condemning the KKK at an NAACP rally.

I can't expect her to ignore her claim to fame.  What bothers me is she must have done some research and found out that this would impress people.

* To recap, he noted since she wants government to pay for contraceptives, what she's demanding is money for sex, which makes her a prostitute. He later apologized, saying it was a joke--which it obviously was.  But that's not how things are played any more.  Fluke did not accept the apology.  If she had, I might have some respect for her.

It only impresses the people who matter

Anyone who's impressed by this doesn't matter.

Interesting that you're both right, although anon 2 I have to say they are as much victims as villains. I admit they bring it on themselves. But even if they thereby deserve it, they end up dragging everyone else down with them. (And as for you anon 1, that's an awfully cynical view, even if correct. "Give us your vote (and go to the devil)" is what it amounts to.

Too bad we can't come up with a way to apply consumer fraud laws to government. I guess we'd never agree what makes up the fraud: property, or no property.
