Sandra Fluke: Shrill & Strident

By on 9.5.12 | 10:37PM

I caught most of Sandra Fluke's speech to the DNC. Her tone was shrill and strident. Here is but a sample:

In that America, your new president could be a man who stands by when a public figure tries to silence a private citizen with hateful slurs. Who want to stand up to the slurs, or to any of the extreme, bigoted voices in his own party.

For a moment there, I thought she was speaking of President Obama and Bill Maher.

It would be an America in which you have a new vice president who co-sponsored a bill that would allow pregnant women to die preventable deaths in our emergency rooms.

So first Mitt Romney is responsible for the death of the spouse of a former Bain employee. Now Paul Ryan is responsible for the deaths of pregnant women.

I think of Sandra Fluke as a younger version of DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman-Schultz. So by all means I hope Obama has Fluke stumping for him between now and November. For every person she engages, she will annoy a hundred others.
