Limbaugh Touts Obamacare Ads as Vindication for Sandra Fluke ‘Slut’ Remarks

You may recall kind of a big controversy from last year when Rush Limbaugh called Georgetown student Sandra Fluke a slut, making her representative of a movement he argued wants the government to help pay for their sex lives. And while in retrospect today, Limbaugh regretted being inartful, he argued that a spate of new ads “promoting promiscuity” essentially vindicate what he was saying.

The ads in question, from the makers of “Brosurance,” basically have the not-so-subtle message that Obamacare will help you get your freak on in a safe, responsible manner. Limbaugh said that back when he talked about Fluke, he said Obamacare would promote “promiscuity” and it “caused a lot of people to freak out.”

He described some of the ads, including an equally unsubtle highlight of a woman in one of the ads having her mouth “wide open in eager anticipation,” saying, “That ad is promoting promiscuity. That ad is associating promiscuity with Obamacare.”

This convinced Limbaugh that even if he “screwed up” his meaning at the time, “I predicted, ladies and gentlemen, I warned everybody that’s where this was headed.” He continued on to say Fluke’s testimony at the time was, as he phrased it, “I want to have limitless, endless sex, I want you to pay for that.”
