Fluke, Flack, Fake
Where do I even begin?
Sandra Fluke (rhymes with....never mind) is a third-year law student at Georgetown University. She appeared at a House hearing last week to bemoan Georgetown's lack of birth control coverage in its health plan.
Well, it wasn't a REAL hearing, since Congress was in recess and the Capitol building was mostly empty. But, Nancy Pelosi rounded up a few other democrats and a bunch of women supporters and put them in an empty room and held her own "unofficial" hearing. Let's call it a kangaroo hearing. Since Nancy lost her personal Air Force jet to ferry her back and forth to San Francisco, I guess she has a lot of time on her hands. Fluke wasn't under oath and nothing that was said was entered into any official record. It could just as well have been a high school play.
Fluke "testified" that Georgetown Law, a Jesuit institution, does not provide contraception coverage in its student health plan and that contraception can cost a woman more than $3,000 during law school. Say what? Fluke had told reporters that she researched the Jesuit college’s health plans for students before enrolling, and found that birth control was not included. “I decided I was absolutely not willing to compromise the quality of my education in exchange for my health care,”
Hmmm, if she is so concerned about having a university pay for her birth control, why did she enter a Jesuit school? Couldn't she have gone to Harvard Law or Yale Law or the Columbia School of Lawering? Another point is, where does a law student find the time to lobby for her pet cause? The people I've talked to who went to law school say they felt like indentured servants. They didn't have a spare minute for social activism, much less have so much sex. ( I have to admit, I'd be a bit more sympathetic to her cause if I thought she were interested in men.) And, if she can afford about $64,000 a year in tuition and expenses, why can't she afford to buy birth control pills at Target or WalMart for nine dollars a month?
We haven't seen the last of this woman. Mark my words, Sandra Fluke is a future Nancy Pelosi or Barbara Boxer or Diane Feinsten. She is the future of radical leftist women. Like death and taxes, they will always be with us.
