    'Sluts' Unite Against Republicans, Rush Limbaugh
    By Amy Bingham | ABC OTUS News

    Watch out Republicans, here come the sluts.

    Women's rights activists are banding together to "Rock the Slut Vote" in an online effort to register women to vote and cast their ballots against Republicans in 2012.

    "If the GOP thinks that throwing the word 'slut' at us at this point is going to silence women they have another thing coming," said Susan McMillan Emry, the site's founder.

    Embry states that she is trying to 're-appropriate" the word..and not let others silence women.I'm not sure this is a good idea.

        If they are a liberal and they are told to do it they will do it.

        It's what is known as useful idiots.

      Wasn't it just Rush Limbaugh who made the slut comment? I'm all for women standing up for womens rights and issues but the whole slut thing seems like its giving more limelight to that guy and his stupid comments.

      The intention is good, but the perception might be damaging.

    I think she is giving it too much attention by using the word Sluts in her campaign....it isn't deflecting attention at all.

    Why not? We already have Rock the Blow-Hard Vote, with ole Limpbisquit there.

    Besides, Russsshhhhhhhh only marries sl*ts. No pregnancies......gotta be using Birth Control!!

    OR, the rumors are true, and we should be saying Rock the Peodophile Vote.(Limbaugh)

      It's OK to state rumors as facts, isn't it? Thought so. GOP rules.

    I love it.
    Take the offensive word and claim it as your exclusive property so the opposition can't use it anymore.
    It worked great for niggers, why not sluts!

    You bet Rush Limbaugh thinks I'm a slut!
