Sandra Fluke Addressed The Democratic Convention Speaking Of Two Profoundly Different Futures

Attorney and women’s bloom apostle Sandra Fluke addressed the Democratic assemblage on Wednesday, speaking of “two greatly altered futures,” one in which, she asserted, should Mitt Romney be elected, “birth ascendancy is controlled by bodies who will never use it [and] will redefine ‘rape,’” or the reelection of President Obama, “a man who thinks of his daughters, not his delegates.”

Rachel Maddow on MSNBC said that the Democrats had juggled the assemblage agenda so that Fluke would arise during the 10 p.m. network-news hour. But, amazingly, ABC and CBS did not backpack Fluke’s
accent live. (NBC was airing ahead appointed NFL football.)

Fluke came to bulge when, as she said this night, “Republicans shut me out of a audition on contraception.” During her time as a Georgetown University Law Center student, she formed on issues of calm violence, and supports acute allowance affairs to awning bearing control, for a clandestine authorization for contraception coverage. On Wednesday night, she said, “I’m actuality because I batten out, and this November, anniversary of us needs to allege out.”

The badinage of Fluke has been all-encompassing in assertive quarters. On Fox News Wednesday night, Bill O’Reilly above Fluke bottomward to addition who “wants us to pay for her bearing control.” Later, during Sean Hannity’s Fox hour, arced auger Michelle Malkin referred to Fluke as “the true, unhinged face of the Left” who was there “to canvass chargeless bearing control.”

Last week, in that bleary time of old, back Clint Eastwood conducted a Platonic brainwork on the attributes of a chair, addition odd TV moment occurred. Bill O’Reilly, co-anchoring Fox News advantage of the Republican convention, said jokingly that he was “afraid of balloons,” but again went on to ask rhetorically of his co-anchors, “When Sandra Fluke speaks abutting week, I admiration what they’re gonna bead from the ceiling?” He continued, “There’s alone one acumen this woman is speaking … so if you’re gonna bead something… ,” his articulation trailed off, abrogation the “something” blind in the air, as it were. Um, was he implying the Democrats would bead contraceptives? You be the judge:

O’Reilly’s co-anchors (John Roberts and James Rosen) best up on the implication, and articulate a bit taken ashamed (“Oh, goodness!” said one; “There goes that evocative O’Reilly again!” said the other).

It’s not absurd to anticipate that O’Reilly was suggesting the Dems might, oh, ameliorate as avalanche of birth-control pills on Fluke. I apperceive it doesn’t accomplish faculty for the Democrats to accomplish fun of their own apostle in this manner, but in the post-Eastwood era of political humor, annihilation goes, right?
