Yesterday's Doofus = today's liar and con artist?


Yesterday I nominated Georgetown 'law student' Sandra Fluke as our Doofus Of The Day #576. Turns out she resembles a Doofus rather less than she does a two-faced political hack, lobbyist, deceiver and liar. Jammie Wearing Fools reports:

For me the interesting part of the story is the ever-evolving “coed”. I put that in quotes because in the beginning she was described as a Georgetown law student. It was then revealed that prior to attending Georgetown she was an active women’s right advocate. In one of her first interviews she is quoted as talking about how she reviewed Georgetown’s insurance policy prior to committing to attend, and seeing that it didn’t cover contraceptive services, she decided to attend with the express purpose of battling this policy. During this time, she was described as a 23-year-old coed. Magically, at the same time Congress is debating the forced coverage of contraception, she appears and is even brought to Capitol Hill to testify. This morning, in an interview with Matt Lauer on the Today show, it was revealed that she is 30 years old, NOT the 23 that had been reported all along.

In other words, folks, you are being played. She has been an activist all along and the Dems were just waiting for the appropriate time to play her.

While she is described as a “third year law student” they always fail to mention that she is also the past president of Law Students for Reproductive Justice.


There's more at the link.

Needless to say, the media are in a feeding frenzy over Ms. Fluke's remarks, and how Rush Limbaugh called her a 'slut', and all the rest of the brouhaha that surrounds this incident. However, none of the mainstream media outlets I follow have yet revealed the truth about her . . . they still continue to refer to her as a 'third-year law student'. Guess who's following the 'party line' about this? It's proof once again (as if further proof were needed!) that you can no longer trust the mainstream media to report fairly or accurately about anything to do with politics. They're peddling an agenda, not the news.

When I saw the link in your earlier post I checked it out. I howled. Not only a slut, but very tacky.

Regardless of her age, background or political viewpoints do you really think that calling her what she was called was the Christian thing to do?

Do I think that her sexual supplies should be paid for by her university or tax money (tax money = my money) absolutely not. Her fun, she can pay for it herself or in conjunction with her partner.

However the furor IMHO is not about what she said but rather what was said about her by Limbaugh.

As for the media being played and picking and choosing their stories it would be news if they were NOT doing that.

It further proves what I've been saying all along to anyone who will listen: this is not about contraceptives, this is about controlling the narrative.

This is about getting us to talk about "over sexed law school coeds" or whether or not it's appropriate to call someone who wants us to pay her to have sex a "slut" or not. So that we don't talk about the destruction of our economy, the attack on our freedoms being led by the current administration. Every second talking about Ms. Slut is a second we don't hammer on Fast and Furious, or the way the Czars bypass congress, or the cabinet that never meets, or rule by executive fiat and so on.

Politics 101 - get the opponent off-message.

The fact that the girl is (apparently) a left-wing foot soldier who was asked to go make a fool of herself in front of congress just proves it even more.

Graybeard is right.
Never the less, I would like to contact Sandra Fluke; I have something to show her.

Websters defines slut as a sexually immoral woman. Yes, she is a slut. I did not say I was a Christian, which relieves me of the issue of doing the Christian thing.
And, yes, I resent having to pay her way through school and additionally for her promiscuity.
Ms. Fluke specifically went to Georgetown University to embarrass and harass the school. She knew it was Catholic, she knew exactly what was going to happen when she asked for contraceptives.
If she passes her bar, the ACLU will find her a welcome addition.
Of course the President called her before she testified. He probably knew exactly who she was and what she was about to do.
Maybe he could write her one of his famous checks.
