. . . you guessed it, “conservative, evangelical, Tea Party Republicans.”
Speaking to an Emily’s List fundraiser, Fluke said that “GOP efforts to limit the availability of birth control” were “directly responsible for Weiner’s behavior.”
“What men, and women want, above all is SAFE sex. It’s our constitutional right. So now the GOP is limiting our access to both birth control AND abortion on demand. So a poor person like me, I can’t afford to have sex, unless it’s unprotected, and if a poor person accidentally gets pregnant, it’s now almost impossible to get an abortion.”
“That’s why so many men and women are resorting to sexting. It’s safe sex. The ultimate safe sex.”
“And now we’re hypocritically blaming this poor guy Weiner for basically trying to do the right thing. It makes no sense whatsoever. It just goes to show how Rush Limbaugh, Newt Gingrich, and the rest of the Tea Party are messing up this country. Weiner’s a good guy, he’s my hero. I hope he wins, he’ll makes a great mayor, and I’m going up to NYC this weekend to campaign for him.”
I hope that the reader will pardon me if I just break out laughing in the middle of this. A student who can afford Georgetown University’s law school is a “poor person” who can’t afford birth control? It was noted that the Target store about three miles from that campus was selling birth control pills to women without health insurance for a whopping $9.00 a month. Maybe if the lovely Miss Fluke skips two margaritas a month, she can afford not to get knocked up.
As for the little Weiner, it’s kind of silly to hold that he needed to “sext” — and Patterico has some of his best ones! — because he’s afraid of some poor woman getting pregnant because she might not have birth control due to the wicked Republicans, because he’s a married man! If he is horny, he has a wife, a rather attractive wife, to whom he can turn.
Well, maybe he can. Huma Abedin stood beside the embattled Mr Weiner in his press conference, apparently because she has about zero self respect, but it wouldn’t be much of a surprise if the little Weiner doesn’t get to turn to his darling bride for sex for a while now.
