Is it actually possible that Rush Limbaugh is so ignorant that he doesn't know how hormonal birth control works? The part of his quote where he calls Sandra Fluke a slut made the news, but it's what he said beforehand that actually blows my mind:

"Apparently, four out of every ten co-eds are having so much sex that it's hard to make ends meet if they have to pay for their own contraception, Fluke's research shows."

He actually seems to think that the frequency of sex has an effect on the on the cost of hormonal birth control. He's an adult - and has been for decades. Does he really not know how hormonal birth control work? Do conservatives in general not understand how birth control works?

Please tell me no.


Rachel goes into this in more detail (with some other conservatives who also seem less than knowledgable):
