When a Fluke is not a fluke

I can just picture the huddle in D.C.:

"Our soldiers keep getting killed by their local battle buddies in Afghanistan..."
"We didn't raise the debt ceiling enough to get us through the election... uh, oh...
"Bullets keep flying over the border with Mexico..."
"People seem uneasy over the idea of us targeting citizens without a trial..."

"Hey! I know -- let's get everyone talking about how awful it is that a Jesuit-run university doesn't offer contraceptives as part of student health freebies!  Yeah... that'll distract 'em!"
Sandra Fluke is being sold by the left as something she’s not. Namely a random co-ed from Georgetown law who found herself mixed up in the latest front of the culture war who was simply looking to make sure needy women had access to birth control. That, of course, is not the case.
As many have already uncovered Sandra Fluke she is, in reality, a 30 year old long time liberal activist who enrolled at Georgetown with the express purpose of fighting for the school to pay for students’ birth control. She has been pushing for mandated coverage of contraceptives at Georgetown for at least three years according to the Washington Post.
However, as I discovered today, birth control is not all that Ms. Fluke believes private health insurance must cover...
Weapons of Mass Distraction, indeed...
