Dana Loesch is brain-deficient.
Loesch, after discovering that Fluke’s boyfriend is the son of an “entrenched Democrat,” and that Fluke and her boyfriend are currently on vacation in California, concludes that Fluke’s boyfriend should be paying for Fluke’s contraception. After all, it’s unfathomable that Fluke can’t fund her own sluttiness when she has a “Democrat” boyfriend and enough money to make the harrowing journey from one coast to the other.
Yes, really. Dana Loesch is that stupid.
Why is Dana Loesch on CNN? Her idiocy is much better suited for Fox News. Why doesn’t CNN bid her adieu? For an organization that is supposed to be a news network [insert derisive snort], CNN is not doing itself any favors by continuing to allow such a mental incompetent and pathological liar to further pollute its brand (such as it is.)
Maybe Fluke’s boyfriend, the son of entrenched Democrat William Mutterperl, can pay for her contraception. His father donates heavily to Democrat candidates. The couple is currently enjoying spring break in California, which poses the question of how Fluke can afford a trip across the country when she can’t afford birth control pills.
I assume that CNN knows that Fluke wasn’t testifying about herself and they know that she wasn’t talking about her own sex life, her boyfriend or indeed, anything about her personal life. Rush Limbaugh and his band of misogynist media puppets all pretended like she did and spent days calling her a slut, saying that she had so much sex, “It’s amazing she can even walk” but the fact remains that she never said she could not afford birth control.
[Here is what Sandra Fluke said], in case CNN thinks its lovely “contributor” might have even the slightest bit of journalistic integrity:
On a daily basis, I hear from yet another woman…who has suffered financial, emotional, and medical burdens because of this lack of contraceptive coverage….
Without insurance coverage, contraception can cost a woman over $3,000 during law school. For a lot of students who, like me, are on public interest scholarships, that’s practically an entire summer’s salary. Forty percent of female students at Georgetown Law report struggling financially as a result of this policy.One told us of how embarrassed and powerless she felt when she was standing at the pharmacy counter, learning for the first time that contraception wasn’t covered, and had to walk away because she couldn’t afford it. Women like her have no choice but to go without contraception. Just last week, a married female student told me she had to stop using contraception because she couldn’t afford it any longer. Women employed in low wage jobs without contraceptive coverage face the same choice.
As Digby goes on to point out, Loesch, and Limbaugh, and every single idiot at Fox News is lying. They’re lying about Fluke’s testimony, they’re lying about the manner in which birth control will be covered under President Obama’s plan, and they’re lying about the so-called incursion on religious liberties. Nothing these lying freaks have said bears any resemblance to the truth. Indeed, they are lying so hard their noses have shot out from their faces and are currently circling the globe at warp speed:
Not that it matters. Even if Fluke had testified that she personally couldn’t afford birth control, it would still not be Dana Loesch’s business whether her boyfriend’s father has money not is it a license for her to question whether Fluke could afford a trip. (That particular gambit was perfected by another lovely right winger, Michele Malkin who stalked the Frost family and determined that they had no right to health care subsidies for their two sick kids because they had granite countertops in their kitchen.)
Dana, sweetie? Stick to peeing on corpses. That’s really all you’re good for.
And CNN? What the fuck?!
No seriously — what the fuck?!
