I really hope this is a troll to bait more sexist garbage out of Rush et. al.
 
2014-07-13 10:08:19 AM  
So you have to get to the middle of the article to discover that she is trailing to a more experienced candidate.
 
2014-07-13 10:15:04 AM  
Hmm, I may have to vote for her.

Headline: Fluke can win!
Article: Allen is going to crush her like the dreams of a Make a Wish child.

Fart_Machine: So you have to get to the middle of the article to discover that she is trailing to a more experienced candidate.


Experienced how? In quality doublespeak?

"I think it's about roots. It's about temperament. It's about substantial policy-making experience," Allen said. "I've got a track record of working with people from all across the political spectrum to get things done."

Google translation:
"blah blah blah, whatever word strings make me sound qualified to the rubes."

Then she'll have those sweet govt benefits forever to support her wild life of farking in wanton shame.
 
2014-07-13 10:22:21 AM  
She can't do worse than a lot of representatives out there.

Rush Limbaugh: Starmaker.

Thank you, Rush, for making Sandra Fluke world famous!

I, for one, support our new slutty overlord.

It would be a great Fark You to Rush if she were to get elected.
 
2014-07-13 10:31:45 AM  
Sounds good.  Where does she stand on a mans right to a man cave?  We want subsidies!!!

Or experienced as in already involved in local politics and has a broader base. Also doublespeak isn't what you think it is.

raerae1980: It would be a great Fark You to Rush if she were to get elected.


No, it wouldn't.  it would be a blessing.  His ratings are still flagging lately, he needs a personal hot-topic to keep himself relevant.  If she got elected, he'd have a fresh magazine of ammo to shoot at his followers.

I see your point. But then if he goes on another tirade over birth control/sluts etc., it could force more advertisers to flee.

I'd vote for it

Umhum.  Let me see if I can get into my Rush LImbaugh voice.

1, 2, 3, testing, testing.  OBUMMER!  FEMINAZI!
OK, I'm ready.  Here goes:

"So, that Sandra Fluke is trying to get elected to public office.  You know what this means don't you dittoheads?  She's trying to get on the public payroll.  She's trying to get paid with public taxes.  She's trying to get paid with your taxes.  That means that her income would come from sucking on the public teat and that this is just another attempt to get you, loyal listeners, to pay for her birth control directly!"

Eh.  Those things are ridiculously overpriced.  That one there would run you about $700, and how often are you going to use at least $600 of that cost?

We've got Flukes in the Flizz.
 
2014-07-13 10:58:37 AM  
Oh, that would make poor old Rushbo's head go boom...if we were lucky.

Good for her.  Heck, set your sights higher, replace Nancy Pelosi or one of the other big three, they are all dead wood today.

FTFA: She's been endorsed by EMILY's List, Planned Parenthood and California NOW.  You can't explain that.
 
2014-07-13 11:13:38 AM  
While she will be an excellent representative, she really should have sued the fat pants and deep pockets off the Fat Bastard for the slander and libel he perpetrated against her. Not only is the evidence proof positive, but he has a whole history and pattern of hatred and libel against feminazis women.

FTFA:  Fluke finished second in a field of eight candidates during the June 3 primary and faces fellow Democrat, Ben Allen, who has a wide network of connections in the district, in the November general election.

Reading the article.  You can't explain that.

The last time he shot off a magazine of ammo at Fluke, it cost him the better half of his sponsors.  I don't think it'd be very beneficial for him to do that every day.

From his website under about me:
"and was elected as the top vote-getter in both his 2008 election and 2012 reelection. "


Yes that's how elections work.....

/doublespeak, platitude,, pandering whatever...I prefer hackneyed either way dude was just spewing expected word salad.

You and your cohorts just can't help yourself, can you? You're writing her campaign ads for her. It is like watching sheep shear themselves.

"Only please, Brer Fox, please don't throw me into the briar patch. "

Please proceed. Every utterance is another campaign slogan, another way to hold up your ignorance and vapid policy positions to people who want something better.

Better a Fluke from California than a Flake from Arizona.

\Know she's running for State Senate.
\\Would like her in the other one.

Not double-speak, pandering or platitudes.

The word is "malarkey".

Well... she's an attorney with a career history focused on political advocacy.  I don't think that's terribly unusual as a background for a politician, even if it's not particularly honorable/respectable.  Senators go the opposite direction and leave the senate to become lobbyists all the time, too.

I mean, she's not the best person ever to become part of government, but she'd be far from the worst, too.  Find a district with an unpopular enough incumbent and she'd be a reasonable candidate.
 
2014-07-13 05:13:20 PM  
Would she win? No. Would it bring out all the gnashing teeth and a spotlight to how hateful and stupid our county is? Yes.

Not sure how either "seeks wider influence" or "might have" translates to "can win" in your world, but I'm glad they don't in mine.
