Rush Limbaugh wasn't the only one who had something to say about Georgetown Law School student Sandra Fluke's testimony before Congress. Here's a sampling of the conservative media's persuasive and reasoned arguments against Fluke's testimony, courtesy of Alternet:
-Fox News contributor Michelle Malkin denounced Fluke as a "femme-agoge tool."
-The right-wing site Jawa Report illustrated a post about Fluke with a picture of a tattoo that reads "Semen Demon."
-Pam Geller wrote that Fluke is "banging it five times a day" and that "calling this whore a slut was a softball."
-Accuracy in Media's Don Irvine called her a "skank."
-Former CPAC Blogger of The Year, Ace of Spades, called Fluke a "shiftless rent-a-cooch from East Whoreville."
-Michelle Malkin guest blogger Doug Ross used "Got Slut?" in a headline and suggested Fluke suffered from "nymphomania." [Michelle Malkin corrected this error in a Tweet directed to me and Alternet. Doug Ross does nor blog on Ms. Malkin's site. -- Mark]
-Dana Loesch complained the controversy surrounding Limbaugh's three-day "slut" campaign represented a "manufactured" story. (This, before Limbaugh responded to the "manufactured" story by issuing a rare public statement.)
