The Hester Prynne Slut Video: The 70 Times Rush Limbaugh Poured Verbal Acid on Sandra Fluke

Below is the video Rush Limbaugh doesn’t want you to see. It contains the 70 times he attempted to intimidate Sandra Fluke into shutting up and going away.

What does it say about Rush Limbaugh, that he can so shamelessly do this?

70 times he blasted her over the course of three days. 70 times. Think about that. By repetition, he was trying to generate a cultural meme; trying to turn Sandra Fluke into the character in Nathaniel Hawthorne’s The Scarlet Letter (1850), Hester Prynne, tagging her with the scarlet letter A (or, in this case, S).

And neither Mitt Romney nor Rick Santorum have had the cojones to speak against him.

Why is that?

Here’s Mary Hallock Foote’s drawing, from 1878, of Hester Prynne contemplating the stocks while holding Pearl, her baby.

    Hey there, feel free to discard this comment after you’ve read it.

    You have a typo in ‘cajones’ which should read ‘cojones’
    cajones = drawers

    cojones = balls
