    We've heard this now for days, from the rightwing propaganda machine, that Sandra Fluke was passed off as some ordinary every-woman college student, with no 'activist' affiliations, no sort of women's movement advocacy involvement, etc., etc., etc.,

    all this having been done as some grand conspiratorial cover up by the Democrats.

    Seriously?

    I just happened to re-read her testimony. Her testimony that occurred BEFORE this became a story, before Limbaugh, before the conspiracy charges.

    Let me quote from the very first paragraph of her testimony:

    My name is Sandra Fluke, and I’m a third year student at Georgetown Law, a Jesuit
    school.

    I’m also a past president of Georgetown Law Students for Reproductive
    Justice or LSRJ.


    I’d like to acknowledge my fellow LSRJ members and allies and
    all of the student activists with us
    and thank them for being here today.


    lol, I guess this was a big secret to all those who never bothered to read her actual testimony.
