Rush Limbaugh Uses Danica Patrick to Insert Himself Into the Contraception Debate

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. (via Media Matters):

Limbaugh said:

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 Let us move along to the real reason why he is so afraid that his time in the sun will soon be over; he’s outdated and rather silly.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.

  1. Probably Rush actually wants to insert himself into Danica Patrick, and he realizes that, absent a violent felony, he never will.

  2. I saw the headline and thought, “Don’t click the link, you’ll just get angry.”

    I was right. I should listen to myself more often.

  3. Next to Sarah Jones, Danica is one of the hottest women’s around. Whatever she says is fine with me.

    BTW Rush, you were just voted the least liked news personality. Even republicans voted you into that position.

    Time to go back to the Islands and chase little boys and girls?

  4. Limbaugh is a waste of good air freinds.The thought of his pastywhite ass makes me want to upchuck my spaghettios.Maybe he’ll have a heart attack or something.

  5. and how many offsprings did the RUSH sire? Is it because he shoots blanks or doesn’t shoot at all? Perhaps that is the reason he is so angry. Or maybe he is just impotent, married 4times and not an heir in sight. RUSH Limpballs

  6. “Democrats want to convince us that personal responsibility is something the government ought to do for us.”

    Well, I guess the govt has to do it. If some of the recent behavior I’ve seen is any indication; people are incapable of taking responsibility for themselves. They don’t take responsibility for starting wars without cause. They don’t take responsibility for cheating on their wives. They don’t take responsibility for being a prescription drug addict, who broke the law to buy his drugs on the black market. I guess, if some people can’t take of personal responsibility for themselves, then we the government (the people are the government), will have to.

  7. Danica is wise, but the answer leaves a gap. The mandate is on INSURANCE companies to make this available, and it is attached to ONLY those institutions, no matter who supports them, that take our tax money and therefore come under the equal protections laws.

    What? Take our tax money and demand your employees all be your religion, you serve only those of your religion, and you obey only your religious laws? MASSIVE First Amendment fail.

    Every one of these institutions has a choice (y’know – personal responsibility?) and that is: circle the wagons and self fund or take our money and comply with the law because you take money from ALL of us.

    Danica is right – the govenrment makes good decisions SO THAT we can make individual ones. If the RW has their way (and look out for the Blunt Amendment allowing ANY employer to decide your health care coverage) you will individually have no choice at all. Only your employer will. Is your employer Jehovah’s Witness? No transfusion coverage. Scientologist? No mental health coverage. Homophobic? No HIV/AIDS testing or treatment. That’s FREEDOM?

    Since the mandate is on the insurance companies to have contraception included, there is no extra cost so nope – the Catholics et al. do not have to pay. And whooosh – there goes THAT argument. It’s wrong on the face – you are tax supported therefore you must be equal – but let’s give the dim souls an extra edge. You must be equal AND we’re letting you off the financial hook.

    But please do me one favor? Do NOT use the term “institutional morality” when this came out just as a MOnsignor is going to trial and a Bishop was arrested for failing to report child sexual abuse. Catholic Church – you have a LONG way to go before the term “institutional morality” does not provoke major guffaws from the rest of us.

  8. Rush Limpbag has gone way past his ‘sell by date’ He’s like that slimy disgusting item in the back of the fridge that you can’t remember how it got there or even what it is.

  9. Reporterette. I like it. I don’t know how women listen to his show and not puke. I know a professional woman, very strong, very outspoken, very decisive, very independent, and a Republican (who is happy her newly college graduated daughter can be on her health insurance and is happy her daughter uses birth control BTW) is a huge Rush fan. Don’t get it. Never will.

  10. Does the Healthcare plan cover free testicular and prostate cancer screenings? Imunizations for men? I’m not being confrontational just keep hearing about the female aspects of this bill. Do men also gain the same benefits?

  11. This lowlife is a good argument in favor of contraception being available to everyone. Was it, perchance born brain-dead?

  12. Good.question Dan! If it is helpful for young boys to get the HPV shots, then maybe they should include men in the reproductive aspects of health care!

    In response to this article, I’m outraged Russ Lumpbag opened his mouth on this subject! Don’t mess with a woman who has a professional racing license like Danica!

    First of all, Rush could afford to buy his own car & team with all the money he makes! He is the biggest abortionist of human minds on the air waves!

    However, this bag of blubber & hot air would fail in this ultimate sports category! The car would have to be reinforced tremendously on the driver’r side!

    Oh my, they don’t have a Nomax fire suit BIG enough for Mr. Roly Poly! Same problem with race suit & the helmet not.big enough for such a BIG HEAD! The harnesses would be enormous!

    As an old sports car driver myself (female & damn proud), that flee bag doesn’t have the muscle tone & strength to attempt racing! His PEA SIZED.BRAIN couldn’t figure out what the heck to do with airflows, drag & push, weather effects on engines, tires etc & the best app for going through curves & corners!

    His weight would screw up his fuel consumption & screw up engine performance!

    If he were able to be shoved in his seat, I could see it now! Facial cheeks draping over the wheel! His bountiful tummy floats over the shift stick! At least, there is one erect appliance in his car! That’d be the only thing ever in his proximity! How could he be clean on his multiple shifts?

    Anyway, who would want to be around Mr. Pea Brain at the end of the race? You’d have to bring in the decontaminate crews because of the stench coming from Mr. Doughboy! Enough said! LOL

    Excellent article Sarah! Salute to my gal Danica in all things she says & accomplishes! You go girls!

  13. AWESOME! Great time period! Lots of craziness before at & afterward back then!. Awe the essence of fuel, power,sweat, tears & jubilance very close up back then! Duct tape, coat hangers & all.kinds of simplified rigging compared to today! Pit row was a lot different! OMG I’m just so proud that today young girls can attain that quest! If the GOP takes over this country, women are doomed! Love your.comments & input to this SALVATION OF FRESH AIR! Raynardine keep up your wonderful attitude! I just got introduced to ya’ll recently & love this place! Later….
