Sandra Fluke's Super-Smart DNC Speech Should 'Slut-Shame' Rush Limbaugh Forever (VIDEO)

Wonder Woman 124

sandra flukeIf only I could give Sandra Fluke a high-five right now! As a fellow American woman, I've been fuming over the incredibly disrespectful, ignorant, and downright detestable comments Rush Limbaugh made about the Georgetown Law University student since that oafish blowhard called her a "slut" on the air back in February (for daring to voice her opinion that universities should provide contraception coverage).

Oh, how I've been fuming -- and waiting, waiting for the moment when Fluke would have the opportunity to make Limbaugh look like a bigger fool than ever (dang, that's a big fool!). Then, just a few hours ago, that seemingly endless wait was finally over. Sandra Fluke took the stage at the Democratic National Convention -- the very same Sandra Fluke who was accused by Rush Limbaugh of "having so much sex she can't afford the contraception" -- and wiped the floor with Limbaugh and the rest of his misinformed, misogynist kind.

It was truly a beautiful thing. If you missed it, I urge you to watch the video below (repeatedly, if necessary). But first, check out these 5 quotes from Fluke's speech -- a speech that's bound to make history in the best way possible:

1. "Many women are shut out and silenced. So while I'm honored to be standing at this podium, it easily could have been any one of you. I'm here because I spoke out, and this November, each of us must do the same."

2. " ... your new president could be a man who stands by when a public figure tries to silence a private citizen with hateful slurs. Who won't stand up to the slurs, or to any of the extreme, bigoted voices in his own party."

3. "We know what this America would look like. In a few short months, it's the America we could be. But it's not the America we should be."

4. "We've also seen another future we could choose ... An America in which our president, when he hears a young woman has been verbally attacked, thinks of his daughters -- not his delegates or donors -- and stands with all women."

5. "Over the last six months, I've seen what these two futures look like. And six months from now, we'll all be living in one or the other. But only one. A country where our president either has our back or turns his back; a country that honors our foremothers by moving us forward, or one that forces our generation to re-fight the battles they already won; a country where we mean it when we talk about personal freedom, or one where that freedom doesn't apply to our bodies and our voices."

I know which America I'm going to choose ... do you?

Zuri, Bill Maher is different from Rush Limbaugh because he is a comedian on HBO, which people have to pay for to get. Comedians are paid to make fun of people and stuff. If you don't like a particular brand of comedy, you don't patronize that comedian. Maher's particular brand is political comedy, so he is gonna be making fun of politicians. Limbaugh is a pundit on a free radio program. He is not trying to be funny, he is trying to be taken seriously. He wants people to agree with what he says. That is why his slanderous rhetoric is so dangerous.

Aphrodite seduced Adonis with her magic girdle and Persephone reported this to

Ares. Sometimes women just accept this as a part of life, that when men dislike someone that can be brutal about what they

say. When I was engaged to my second husband I introduced

him to my very close friends, who just happen to be a

lot older than I was.
