Both Costas Eyes Now Commie Pink
RUSH: Bob Costas in the Soviet Union -- uh -- Russia, has to take tonight off, pinkeye. Of all the infections that you could get when you go to a former communist country, pinkeye? No, it's not bad mascara. It's an eye infection out there. But, I mean, the red Soviet Union and get pinkeye. Some of this stuff, folks, writes itself.
Casualties of the Democrat War on Women in Massachusetts
RUSH: "Massachusetts State Representative Carlos Henriquez," Massachusetts state representative, his party is not noted here. What do you think it is? Massachusetts. Exactly. He's a Democrat. "Massachusetts State Representative Carlos Henriquez was convicted last Wednesday of assaulting a woman who refused to have sex with him. He was sentenced to six months in prison. Following his conviction, the president of the New England Area Chapter (NEAC) of the NAACP, Juan Cofield, jumped to Henriquez’s defense, comparing the assault on and beating of a woman to jaywalking."
Cofield, the New England Area Chapter head honcho the NAALCP was on a radio show last week, and he said, "[Henriquez] was convicted of two misdemeanors -- not felonies -- misdemeanors, and there is no standard in the House for expulsion based on misdemeanor convictions. Almost every one of us . . . commits a misdemeanor. Jaywalking is a misdemeanor. Would you have a state representative legislator expelled from the House for jaywalking?"
He assaulted a woman who refused to have sex with him, six months in prison. The head honcho of the local -- can anybody say War on Women? Here's another. All of the victims of the War on Women happened at the hands of Democrats. Another woman in Massachusetts. You could call this the Ted Kennedy sentence that never was: Six months in prison for beating up a woman who refused to have sex with him, and the NAALCP honcho says, "Hey, come on! It's a misdemeanor. Would we throw somebody out of the House for jaywalking?" And, of course, what's the reaction? (hissing silence) White noise. Nothing.
Sprout Pharmaceuticals Willing to Do More Research on Female Viagra
RUSH:"A drugmaker working to develop a pill to boost sexual desire in women says regulators are demanding more studies on the experimental drug," and he's happy to comply. (laughing) "Sprout Pharmaceuticals said Tuesday that the Food and Drug Administration wants to see more data on how the company's drug, flibanserin, interacts with other medications and how it affects driving ability. Nearly 10% of women studied in company trials reported sleepiness while taking the daily pill" designed to "boost sexual desire."
That kinda doesn't work, right?
If you're taking a pill for sexual desire and you fall asleep, there could be a problem. "[I]n a news release, Sprout Pharmaceuticals President Cindy Whitehead described the development as a 'significant step toward the approval of flibanserin.' The three studies requested by the FDA are relatively small, involving 25 to 50 patients each." We would do it here with five and save everybody a lot of money.
"The company says it plans to resubmit its drug application to FDA in the third quarter. The company based in Raleigh, NC, said in December that it had reached an 'impasse' with regulators after the agency issued a second rejection letter on the drug. ... Even if the FDA eventually approves flibanserin, Sprout will have to convince doctors to prescribe the drug for a condition that is still viewed with some skepticism."
What does that mean? Does that mean that some are skeptical that a pill can enhance women's sexual desire? What does that mean? What are they skeptical about?
RUSH: This is female Viagra. And, by the way, the pill's pink. That's what they're waiting on approval for. And of course the question is, is it even needed, is what that story is basically about. Let's say it gets FDA approval, now you gotta go to the doctors, if you can find any, and convince them to prescribe it. But there is skepticism that such a thing is necessary because women -- according to the story. And then I wonder how this all works with same-sex marriage, since we're talking about it.
It sounds like this is a pill actually for people who would be happy with some-sex marriage. People are out there just totally obsessed with same-sex, but we forget about the some-sex. (interruption) No, no, no. Now, don't start giving me the cheap stereotypical comments here on headaches and stuff. That's beneath the dignity of this program.
