    There was not one Republican at the "hearing" she "testified" at.

    I've already been called worse on this site. You're not breaking new ground... but then again, I didn't make myself a political rube on television for a special interest group and take part in a faux news conference. She did... so I'll say it again: I'm surprised slut is the worst that's come out. I get that your trying to steer the conversation around the actual issue ... most partisans do. But at the core, she's responsible for herself and her own contraception, regardless if it's for ****in' or if it's due to some condition.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Hey, we're not the ones arguing that, whether something is offensive or not, is solely dependent on the character of the person being criticized. That's mainly an argument from some on the left to justify horrible things said about Sarah Palin by left wing pundits.

    I understand what it is, but it's ludicrous so reasonable and rational people usually reject it.

    You do understand that was not a real Congressional hearing? That was my point to begin with.

    Llisteners were fleeing Rush Limbaugh's show even before the latest controvery

    Rush Limbaugh may be going through the worst weeks of his career. More than 40 advertisers and two stations have dumped his syndicated radio show since he called a Georgetown University law student a “slut” and “prostitute” for testifying that health insurance should cover prescription contraceptives.

    But listeners were fleeing his show long before the latest controversy.

    In January, El Rushbo drew an average of 71,800 listeners to his WABC show—a 37% drop from the same month in 2010, according to Arbitron. The number of listeners who tuned in for less than 15 minutes at a time—not long enough to be counted in the ratings—has also been dropping by double digits. “That means, for peripheral listeners, the show isn't even on the radar,” said Mark Lefkowitz, media director at Furman Roth Advertising. He added that results were the same in other big cities, such as Dallas and Chicago.

    And even with election season heating up, some radio experts don't expect Mr. Limbaugh's ratings to return to its highs. “He used to be funny; then he started believing his own stuff,” said Robert Unmacht of radio consulting firm iN3 Partners.
