Do you think Sandra Fluke would be a good addition to Congress?

Birth Control Activist Sandra Fluke Is Seriously Considering a Run for Congress

by Jenny Erikson 

The woman who became semi-famous after Rush Limbaugh asked if she was a slut for demanding government-sponsored birth control looks to be very seriously considering a run for Congress.

Sandra Fluke has filed and paid the fee to obtain the endorsement of the California Democratic Party, although she has not officially entered the race to replace the retiring Henry Waxman in his west L.A. district.

A representative for Fluke told The Daily Caller, “It does not mean she is definitely running … it was a procedural step she had to take with the state party if she would want to be considered for their endorsement, it is not indicative of a final decision.”

More from The Stir: Rush Limbaugh Apologized for Slut Comment ... Now Get Over It

The Georgetown grad moved to California and passed the bar exam two years ago, so she’s a legit candidate. And in the super liberal district she’s running in, she actually has a shot at winning. Think Malibu, Brentwood, and Beverly Hills. I mean, they’re probably not clamoring for free birth control in those neighborhoods, but they’re definitely Obama-voters, and you know how much Obama-voters love their promises of free stuff paid for by other people.

I kid, I kid. Er, um, well let’s just say there’s humor in truth.

No word yet on whether the former candidate for Time magazine’s “Person of the Year” is planning to fund her own race, or if she’ll want that paid for too.

Do you think Sandra Fluke would be a good addition to Congress?

It must have not been good for me to forget it. 

shrugging

I can look it up when I get back from taking my son to school.

Quoting blondekosmic15:

Nope but replays on nat'l news demonstrated Fluke's appearance & speech @ the convention. 

Quoting Pema_Jampa:

I didn't listen to that one. You watched the Dem convention?

Quoting blondekosmic15:

Obviously you forgot about the Dem Convention in 2012. All she talked about was womens' reproductive rights & abortion. Even some prominent Democrats were shaking their head. 

Quoting Pema_Jampa:

Obviously you didn't watch it. Maybe doing so would help be more informed on what was really said instead of making false statements in regards to Sandra Fluke.

Quoting vic270:

 i did not watch her speech the first time, she made it about her and getting her birth control paid for when obamas adm. was passing obamacare. i thought she made a big idiot of herself then and first impressions do count.

Quoting Pema_Jampa:

You need to watch her speech she gave again. It was not about her. 

Quoting vic270:

she needs to get out of poitics and endorse her own birth control pill. she has done had a lot of success with that. and as long as she is on the pill mayby she won't reproduce.oh i forgot to answer the question NO.

 Your statements were spot on.

Fact is she is a perfect fit for the political fools in Califorinia though.  I don't think I want a woman like that in office. I don't like people who think women can't take care of themselves

Quoting vic270:

  i did not make any false statements against her if i did you point them out and i will make corrections. i do not have any use for her and that is my opinion. i'm entitled to that and i do nt lie. please tell me where i'm wrong.

it don't even make sense, she is going to a university that most students would die to get into, she is in her last year and you would think that the school taught her to be a self supporting human being. why if you have an opportunity like she has had, and still be upset that her b. control is not paid for. i don' know where her priorities are when something this basic is what upsets her so much. some ppl i'm sure see it her way, that is fine. i'm sorry i cannot sympathize with her.

I think she'd be pretty good based off the little I know about her but I have been slowly looking her up since first reading this article.

 Since when is government and employers responsible for preventing pregnancy?

 

BTW I am not talking about Me. I am talking about all women should be responsible.
