    I will, if you can tell me how her testimony is directly relevant to the children's book this thread is about. Does Fluke mention the book? Does the book mention Fluke? Is the book about safe-sex and BC? Is Fluke's testimony about US history?

    As I said in post#238 "If the books are presented as pure fiction, or are historically accurate, I have no issue with the choice. If he misrepresents history to support arguments for the socially harmful aspects of his worldview (ie. his nationalism, racism and sexism), then I find it objectionable. As long as the Children’s Book Council is not funded by taxpayers they have the right to choose any authors."

    As I also said before, I do not want to give any of my money to Rush or anyone like him who uses his position to spread lies and nationalism, racism and sexism. The Fluke episode is an example of how much of a sexist and sleazy liar he is.

    She was talking about someone else, not herself. Nobody knows anything about Fluke's sex life from her testimony.

    It's unfortunate you believe all those lies about Rush Limbaugh. Stay in your fantasy land, then

    Jerry, if you can go to a website that shows videos of Rush making all of those comments, would you still believe them to be lies? Or maybe a site that has audio files of Rush making those comments, would you think that they were purposely altered to create a lie?

    The Fluke comments by Rush I quoted are from Rush's own website.

    Right, those quotes don't make him sexist or etc. That's his irreverent humor, not sincerely held beliefs. Half the show is satire like The Daily Show (well ok 90% of the Daily Show is satire while Limbaugh actually discusses real news more).

    I never said the quotes were fake. I said those quotes were of Limbaugh's humor. You are accurately quoting satire and then treating that satire as if it's real. You do this simply because you don't share the sense of humor nor agree with them man's political views.
