I posted this article to show the full transcript in written form of what Rush Limbaugh said on his show. The interesting part is that this was posted on Rush Limbaugh's website. The article chooses to focus on the fact that Sandra Fluke went to a Catholic college, which is irrelevant to the remarks that Limbaugh made.
