Rachel Maddow Explains Human Biology, Birth Control, Sex

Rachel Maddow shows 3 days worth of clips during which Rush Limbaugh calls Sandra Fluke a slut and prostitute and asks her to post images of her having sex online. She also teaches people how birth control and sex actually work (move forward to around 13:00 for her very valuable lesson). I like when she gets flustered about how ignorant Limbaugh is about how  birth control works. I also like when she says “You being a dummy is a way bigger problem than you being a jerk.”

In the bigger picture, Mr. Limbaugh was reacting to Fluke’s commentary in support of contraception coverage (by the way: birth control is free or highly affordable in many, many developed and developing countries). I find it odd that he’s been responding so vehemently about contraception coverage given that I’d guess at least some of the thousands of painkillers he was allegedly prescribed (during his addiction days) were perhaps covered by health insurance.
