    "s!ut" to introduce Obama at Denver rally.

    Sandra Fluke will introduce President Obama at a campaign event in Denver on Wednesday, a further sign that the incumbent's re-election team is putting a heavy emphasis on women's issues.

    Fluke, a Georgetown student, testified before Congress earlier this year in favor of health insurance granting coverage of contraception.

    Her stance was cheered by women's rights advocates and many on the left -- but denounced by conservative outlets, including the influential radio host.

    Limbaugh slurred the 31-year-old student as a "****" and a "prostitute," creating a frenzy that led some of his advertisers to abandon him.

    While Limbaugh later apologized, his comments turned Fluke into the unlikely face of the birth control debate -- and prompted Obama to call her expressing concern.

    "He encouraged me and supported me and thanked me for speaking out about the concerns of American women," Fluke said of the March phone call.

    In the 2010 Colorado Senate race Conservative third party groups hammered Democrat Bennet for voting 92% of the time with the Democratic leadership, including voting for healthcare reform and the stimulus package. Liberal third party groups called GOPer Buck extremist. Bennet focused on attacking Buck’s views on abortion, which he believed should be banned including those of cases of rape and incest. Planned Parenthood mounted a mail campaign, targeting women voters with the warning that "Colorado women can’t trust Ken Buck." Bennet won the women vote by 17 points according to exit polls. After the election, Buck conceded to the Denver Post that the main reason why he lost is because of social issues.

    Now refresh my memory --- who's introducing the President?

    Ummm, it's called religious freedom on Georgetown's part. One of those little constitution things.

    If Ms. Fluke wants to have sex, she should buy her own protection and that should apply to public institutions as well. Why should the public foot the bill? In order for the state to avoid paying for a bastard child is not an excuse. Ms. Fluke or anyone else gets pregnant, they should deal with the consequences. Choices do have consequences.

    Liberals don't know what the word 'consequences' mean nor do they care to want to know.

    I applaud Obama for this.

    I don't mind if it fires up the conservative religious rabble one bit. What'll they do? Go eat more Chick Fil-a?

    Good, the people of this country will be way better off when we get over the dysfunctional views of sex thanks to our Judeo-Christian history.

    Backfire? Probably not. Maybe the opposite.

    One of the big reasons Obama is leading in the all-important swing states is the gender gap, i.e. female voters. The whole Fluke vs OxyRush thing a couple months back really didn't help the Repubs there, and the Obama Campaign is probably hoping fatass shoots his mouth off again and starts another media firestorm.

    Best thing the GOP, and most especially Rush, could do regarding Fluke is not. say. another. word. Can they do it? Don't know. Rush is a powder-keg, and is probably still butthurt over the smacking around he got on the matter last time.

    I give him 50-50 odds of saying something (else) majorly stupid on the matter that winds up hurting Mittens further.

    I don't know why they even bother campaigning; 45% of the folks who vote are going to vote Democrat and 45% will vote Republican no matter what, 8% will vote third party, the remaining 2% percent are just going to close their eyes, hold their nose, and press a button when they get in the booth. They should just save their money and save us from the spectacle. Seriously, is this Fluke thing going to sway anybodies vote?

    "8% will vote third party." Whaa?

    In 2008, 1.4% voted third party.

    Gotta luv 'merican Puritanism. Take non-p0rn movie ratings:

    Someone getting murdered bloodily & graphically= R rating.

    People having loving, realistically-depicted sex = NC-17.

    Very screwed up.

    Didn't know one night stands with megan fox looking hotties was realistic.

    Also, how come we very rarely see proper condom use in these movies?

    Good lord man, do you ever watch dramas, indie films, foreign films? There's a lot more to love scenes than what you describe.

    Also, how come we very rarely see proper condom use in these movies?
    Probably for the same reason that when the good-guy sidekick cop gets wounded in an action flick, he grits his teeth and goes, "Go on without me!", instead of screaming and gurgling blood. i.e. it kinda ruins the flow of the scene.
