Remember Sandra Fluke? She’s the professional college student who became famous when a prominent radio host said something rude about her.
Now she’s parlaying that “success” into highly effective political campaigns like this:
Any day now, #SupremeCourt decides whether corporations can deny women access to contraception. http://t.co/xZ247dqtMf

Did you catch that? Corporations want to “deny women access to contraception.” By, um, expecting them to pay for it themselves.
Here’s the text at the link:
TELL THE SUPREME COURT:
Protect women’s health care rights!
Any day now, the Supreme Court will announce its decision in the Hobby Lobby case. The case could have far-reaching implications for whether private companies can refuse to offer their employees’ health insurance with contraception coverage.
Plain and simple — A woman’s boss should not have a say in her health care decisions. No one’s boss should. The stakes are too high for us to be silent.
Please join Sandra Fluke and the DCCC and sign this petition declaring that a woman’s boss should not have a say in her health care decisions.
A woman’s boss should not have a say in her health care decisions. Especially when it comes to refusing to pay for them. You’ll do it and you’ll like it, you woman-haters!
But why stop there? A woman is far more than just her reproductive organs. Why should her boss have a say in any of her other personal decisions? Other than footing the bill, of course.
- “I’m hungry. I want a steak dinner with all the trimmings. Why aren’t you paying for it, you misogynist?”
- “My car is a piece of crap. This Porsche 911 looks super-sweet, though. Buy it for me, boss, or get ready for a big-ass lawsuit!”
- “Is this studio apartment really cutting it? I think not. Here’s the McMansion I’m moving into, on your dime. No? My phone is in my pocket. In a second, it’ll be out of my pocket.”
That’s how you do it. If you can’t get people to pay for stuff you want, just blackmail them until they give in. Then move on to the next demand you haven’t earned.
Easy as pie. Somebody else’s pie.
