Thrust into the public eye by a dimwitted House Minority Leader and further advanced by a boorish radio host, Sandra Fluke has taken to CNN.com to declare that she will not be silenced. The law student (when exactly does this woman study?) claims that “smears” and public condemnation by other critics “are obvious attempts to distract from meaningful policy discussions and to silence women’s voices regarding their own health care,” which have “clearly failed.”
She continues to miss the point, a point that's already been exhaustively covered and is not the point of this post. That point would be that it's time to get off the stage, Ms. Fluke. You're not really a sympathetic figure.
