5) As we're well aware by now, more than 100 advertisers have dropped spots on Rush Limbaugh’s radio show
since he made wildly idiotic claims about third-year Georgetown law student and activist Sandra Fluke’s sex life, calling her a “slut,” and demanding that she fork up a sex tape for excessive, taxpayer-subsidized boning. But maybe even more ridiculous than all of Limbaugh’s misogynistic vitriol is the fact that he didn’t even know how birth control worked. Limbaugh seemed to be under the impression that the amount of birth control pills a person buys is related to how much sex she has, hence the “A woman goes up to congressional committee and says: I’m having sex so damn much, I’m going broke,” comment. Of course, everyone who doesn’t live under a rock knows that a birth control pill has to be ingested daily, consistently, for it to be effective at any given time.
