"Republican Murkowski Slams Limbaugh: ‘Just Wrong’"

Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) condemned Rush Limbaugh’s attacks on Georgetown Law student Sandra Fluke today, and said she is disappointed that more Republican and Democratic leaders haven’t spoken out. Murkowski, who today said that she would take back her vote on the Blunt Amendment if given a chance, said Limbaugh’s comments contribute “to this sense that women’s health rights are being attacked.” “What he said was just wrong. Just wrong,” she told TPM, adding, “In the end, I’m a little bit disappointed that there hasn’t been greater condemnation of his words by people in leadership positions.” She said she was “stunned” by the comments, but given Limabugh’s long record of attacking and belittling women, it should come as no surprise.
