Sandra Fluke Considering Run for Henry Waxman’s Seat

Sandra Fluke Considering Run for Henry Waxman’s Seat

One of the major architects of Obamacare has decided to run for the hills and give up his seat in Congress. Henry Waxman will have served in Congress for 40 years when he retires next January, meaning he literally spent his entire life “working” as a politician. He’s not the only Democrat to announce retirement recently, either (Allah points out that Nancy Pelosi may be next). And why not? They crammed through their disaster of a health care bill against the wishes of the American people already; might as well jump ship now before the you-know-what really hits the fan.

But before anyone gets too excited about the fact that we’re losing the House of Representatives’ resident rat, it’s probably a good idea to look at who is considering running for his seat: none other than everyone’s favorite victim, Sandra Fluke.

Sandra Fluke, who became an instant celebrity when she was denied the opportunity to testify at a hearing on Obamacare’s contraception requirements, is “strongly considering” a bid for Rep. Henry Waxman’s congressional seat, according to KPCC, a Southern California radio station.

“I’m flattered that I’m being discussed as a potential candidate,” she told the station. “A number of folks I respect very deeply have reached out today and encouraged me to run. I am strongly considering running.”

Fluke’s LinkedIn account describes her as a “social justice advocate” in the “greater Los Angeles area” and she’s active on Twitter promoting causes related to women’s health, safety and equality. She also tweeted Thursday to congratulate Waxman on his retirement.

For anyone who doesn’t remember, Sandra Fluke is famous for one thing and one thing only: standing up in front of the House Democratic Steering and Policy Committee and begging for the government to provide college students with free birth control. According to her, female college students were going broke, because birth control was costing them $3,000 a year. There couldn’t possibly be a cheaper option, of course, and they definitely couldn’t choose to abstain from sex if they can’t afford birth control, no sir. Nope, this means that birth control needs to be subsidized ASAP, because if something is too expensive for someone to afford, then it is the job of the government to come in and provide it for them. That’s what “rights” are these days, apparently: anything that people really, really want, but don’t feel like working hard enough to obtain for themselves. That’s why women now evidently have the “right” to government-funded birth control.

Fluke further put her foot in her mouth by comparing birth control to leukemia treatment, and people were evidently getting tired of this one-trick pony, as she had difficulty drawing crowds of more than ten people after her one brief, shining moment in the political spotlight. She’s since faded into obscurity, but unfortunately, she must not be obscure enough.

The question is, do Democrats really want Sandra to run? She has received some support, but there are other local politicians also interested — politicians who presumably have more impressive resumes than whining that birth control is too expensive for her to afford all the sex she’s having. Sandra Fluke, if she runs, would basically be a single-issue candidate, an even more pathetic version of Wendy Davis. One would think that would be embarrassing, but apparently not. She has literally no experience, no qualifications, and is known for one thing. And the one thing she’s known for isn’t something that was universally applauded across the country, either. The feminazis fell all over themselves applauding her, but the rest of the country? Not so much.

The saddest thing about this entire pathetic situation, though, is that she might actually win. If she runs, it’ll be in a solidly Democratic district. Lord knows Democrats love a victim who can’t accomplish anything on their own without the government doing it for them. And that means that Sandra Fluke may very well be a shoo-in.

    Exactly she would be a shoo in. And then she’ll vote exactly as she is told to vote by her Democratic controllers and NOTHING will change.
    Other than she will get mega attention from the drive by’s, women’s magazines, etc.
    And a victory over Rush Limbaugh will be declared.

    The Dem’s are salivating.

    If she gets the nomination, it may be hard to stand out in California’s fool’s parade of women: Boxer, Waters, Feinstein, Pelosi, but she might fit right-in with this rogue’s gallery.
