I’ve worked in DC long enough to know that the great, big political and media machines love the hype around the recent spewings of Rush Limbaugh, in response to testimony provided by a law student with regard to contraception. Don’t get me started on why contraception coverage is such a lightening rod for controversy, but Viagra coverage is an inalienable right. According to those with a y chromosome.
There’s been quite the hulabaloo about this whole situation. When it comes down to it though, it’s a numbers game. As in, how much money is this making us …. or how much money is it costing us. Morales, ethics and just plain human decency be damned.
However, it is nice to see that when it comes to their contracts, some of Rush’s advertisers are pulling out early. If only Rush’s father had.
