Obama Calls Student After Limbaugh "Slut" Comments

President Obama called Georgetown law student Sandra Fluke thanking her for speaking out on the contraception law -- especially after Rush Limbaugh called her a "slut" on his radio show, Huffington Post reports.

Said Fluke: "He encouraged me and supported me and thanked me for speaking out about the concerns of American women. What was really personal for me was that he said to tell my parents that they should be proud."

Meanwhile, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi told Greg Sargent she was surprised that Republican leaders had yet to condemn the comment: "They won't disassociate themselves from it. They're tattooed with that."

Craig Crawford: "You almost have to wonder whether the Republican Party has forgotten women have the right to vote."
