Rush

Limbaugh,

a.k.a.

radio’s

morning

after

pill

for

your

intelligence,

used

an

attack

on

Danica

Patrick

to

stealthily

advance

the

right’s

war

on

contraception.

NASCAR

driver

and

Roman

Catholic

Danica

Patrick

was

asked

by

the

Daily

Caller

what

she

thought

about

“the

Obama

administration’s

dictate

that

religious

employers

provide

health

care

plans

that

cover

contraceptives.”

Their

words,

not

mine,

and

naturally

inaccurate.

Only

religious

outlets

such

as

hospitals

that

must

provide

healthcare

must

provide

contraception

per

the

healthcare

law,

and

thank

you

Democrats

for

that

one.

Again,

mandating

coverage

for

preventive

health

services

only

applies

to

a

“group

health

plan

and

a

health

insurance

issuer

offering

group

or

individual

health

insurance

coverage.”

“I

leave

it

up

to

the

government

to

make

good

decisions

for

Americans,”

Danica

told

the

shocked

outlet.

Patrick’s

answer

sent

Rush

Limbaugh

on

the

attack,

sensing

an

opportunity

to

insert

himself

in

yet

another

place

he

is

not

wanted,

women’s

healthcare.

Danica

Patrick

was

talking

to

a

reporterette,

Michelle

Fields.

I

guess

it

was

Daytona,

somewhere

there

was

a

NASCAR

event,

and

Danica

Patrick

said,

“I

leave

it

up

for

the

government

to

make

good

decisions

for

Americans.”

Now,

this

was

about

the

recent

mandate

of

the

Catholic

Church

providing

contraceptive

devices

and

so

forth.

Danica

Patrick

was

talking

about

Obama’s

contraception

ruling.

She

was

not

speaking

in

general,

although

it

applies

generally.

She

said,

“I

leave

it

up

to

the

government

to

make

good

decisions

for

America.”

She

was

talking

about

Obama

mandating

that

the

Catholic

Church

provide

contraception.

(sigh)

What

do

you

expect

from

a

woman

driver?

I

don’t

know

why

everybody

is

so

shocked.

But

I’m

gonna

tell

you:

Her

answer

sums

up

the

Democrat

mind-set

perfectly.

Democrats

want

to

convince

us

that

personal

responsibility

is

something

the

government

ought

to

do

for

us.

Do

they

not?

Man,

she’s

the

perfect

puppet!

She

is

the

ideal

perfect

puppet

with

that

answer.

But

never

mind

the

misogynistic,

thuggish

puddle

of

muck

that

is

Rush’s

word

vomit.

Let

us

move

along

to

the

real

reason

why

he

is

so

afraid

that

his

time

in

the

sun

will

soon

be

over;

he’s

outdated

and

rather

silly.

After

all,

Danica

has

much

more

authority

to

discuss

birth

control

than

Rush

ever

will.

Rush

Limbaugh

hopes

to

rile

up

his

audience

of

mostly

male

conservatives

(the

type

who

watch

Fox

News;

older,

easily

scared

and

looking

for

any

kind

of

cheap

thrill

even

if

it’s

fear)

by

cutting

down

a

professional

driver

for

being

a

woman

and

for

answering

a

loaded

question

about

birth

control

meant

to

rile

up

the

nutters

about

big

government

taking

away

their

religious

freedom

(translation:

the

world

is

changing

and

they

are

losing

and

it

hurts

really,

really

bad)

from

a

questionable

outlet.

How

80’s

of

him.

The

good

news

for

us

is

that

men

like

Rush

are

on

their

way

out.

Yes,

right

now

they’re

trying

to

control

our

bodies

any

way

they

can

and

they’re

getting

pretty

desperate

about

it.

All

of

this

talk

about

contraception

is

none

of

their

business

and

it’s

absurd

that

they

think

that

it

is

their

business.

Luckily

for

us,

it

won’t

be

their

business

for

very

long,

because

this

is

a

losing

issue

for

Republicans

and

they

are

clearly

on

their

way

out

before

they

hopefully

regroup

and

provide

this

country

with

a

real

political

party

again,

one

day

years

from

now.

When

that

happens,

men

like

Rush

Limbaugh

certainly

won’t

be

running

the

clown

show.

His

days

as

titular

head

of

the

GOP

are

coming

to

an

end

soon.

Here’s

how

a

real

man

discusses

women’s

health:

President

Obama

said,

“As

part

of

the

healthcare

reform

law

that

I

signed

last

year,

all

insurance

plans

are

required

to

cover

preventative

healthcare

at

no

cost.

That

means

free

check-ups,

free

mammograms,

immunizations

and

other

basic

services.”

Rush

doesn’t

realize

that

men

like

him

are

the

reason

women

are

so

adamant

about

having

access

to

birth

control.

Or

maybe

he

does,

and

that

explains

his

bitterness.

Either

way,

it’s

irrelevant

what

he

thinks

about

it

and

Danica’s

opinion

is

much

more

relevant.

So

much

for

yet

another

attempt

by

Rush

Limbaugh

to

insert

himself

where

he

is

least

wanted.

Rush

Limbaugh

talks

loudly

but

carries

a

small,

wilted

stick

and

he

has

the

Viagra

prescriptions

to

prove

it.
