Patricia Heaton — most famous for playing Ray Romano’s wife on Everybody Loves Raymond — is a rare bird: a right-leaning actress in Hollywood. By my count, there’s her and Victoria Jackson. If there are others, and I’m sure there are, then they are in the closet about it or I’m forgetting about them.
Heaton, though not near as vocal and clearly retarded as Jackson, has been known to occasionally open her mouth about politics and make an ass of herself, most famously on celebrity Who Wants To Be A Millionaire when she stated that people in real Amurka are smarter than people on the East and West coasts — and then proceeded to flub a softball question that involved 2nd grade level math.
And now she’s gone and done it again, this time taking to Twitter to not only side with Rush Limbaugh, but to also take shots at Sandra Fluke, the Georgetown University law student Limbaugh charged with being a “slut” and a “prostitute” — in addition to wanting her to post videos of herself having sex online so he could watch — because Fluke wants health insurance plans to pay for birth control.
Here’s a sampling of her idiotic tweets, via Huffington Post…
“Hey G-Town Gal: Plz let us also pay for your Starbucks, movie theater tickets and your favorite hot wings combo deal at KFC! Anything else?”
“Hey G-Town Gal: If your parents have to pay for your birth control, maybe they should get a say in who you sleep with!” Instant birth control!”
“If every Tweaton sent Georgetown Gal one condom, her parents would have to cancel basic cable, & she would never reproduce — sound good?”
“Hey GTown Gal: How about only having sex on Wednesday? (Hump day!).”
“Hey G-Town Gal: turn your underwear inside out! Then u only have to do laundry every 2 weeks—saves on detergent & trips to Laundromat!”
“G-Gal: you’ve given yer folks great gift for Mother’s/Father’s Day! Got up in front of whole world & said I’m having tons of sex- pay 4 it!”
“If your parents have to pay for your birth control, maybe they should get a say in who u sleep with! Instant birth control!”
When she started catching heat from followers, Heaton shut down her Twitter account, and then brought it back to life with the offending tweets deleted.
With all that out of the way, can I just say that this whole “controversy” will never stop boggling my mind. Fluke wasn’t, after all, calling for the government to pay for birth control. She was lobbying for health insurance companies to be forced to cover the cost of it. So I fail to see why people like Limbaugh and Heaton should feel entitled to compensation for “our money being used to pay women to have sex” any more than I should feel entitled to compensation from some guy who gets his pain meds paid for by the same health insurance provider as I do.
“Why should the hard earned dollars that I pay in premiums go to pay for your Oxycontin, you pu$$y. You look just fine to me…WAH WAH WAH!”
When you get past the outrageous, hateful comments, nothing about this makes sense (then again few things involving right-wingers do these days). Are people like Limbaugh and Heaton being secretly paid as lobbyists by the health insurance companies? I DEMAND ANSWERS!!!
