Yes, his sponsors threatened to quit, but some did anyway. More importantly, there was no moral imperative to do so because I doubt a modern woman like Ms. Fluke is insulted by Rush’s word choice. And get this, our President who doesn’t want his daughter to be punished with a baby, called Sandra Fluke to see how she’s coping with Rush’s comments. What a phony!
These day and age being accused of sleeping around — even for money — is not a big a deal. “Slut” is simply a semi-rude word (we all can think of stronger expressions) for behavior that is not exactly unacceptable, and in some circles is even desirable. In the era of 3rd wave feminism, when women are called sluts, they buy skimpy outfits and go on parades. Hence the Slutwalk phenomenon sweeping Europe and North America.

And I didn’t know Andrew Breitbart.
Still, though, I have fought tears all day. He was one of my heroes. I don’t have many. I’m late to this whole conservative blogosphere party, but I understand and appreciate the fact that this “party” would not exist without certain key outliers. Rush Limbaugh, Neil Boortz, Matt Drudge, Glenn Reynolds, and Andrew Breitbart are prime examples.
The “Big” voice.
I dunno if you’ve noticed, but my tagline is “just one voice from the rabble.”
This tagline is meant to emphasize the smallness of my voice. Insignificant. No one of any import.

This is an absolutely great read. So here ya go!:
Prior to his passing, Andrew Breitbart said that the mission of the Breitbart empire was to exemplify the free and fearless press that our Constitution protects–but which, increasingly, the mainstream media denies us.
“Quis custodiet ipsos custodes?” – “Who guards the guardians?” Andrew saw himself in that role—as a guardian protecting Americans from the left’s “objective” loyal scribes.
Andrew wanted to do what the mainstream media would not. First and foremost: Andrew pledged to vet President Barack H. Obama.
Andrew did not want to re-litigate the 2008 election. Nor did he want to let Republicans off the hook. Instead, he wanted to show that the media had failed in its most basic duty: to uncover the truth, and hold those in power accountable, regardless of party.
