Sandra Fluke, the former Georgetown University law student who gained fame when Rush Limbaugh called her a “slut,” brought her California State Senate campaign to Funny or Die Wednesday with an appearance on the website’s “Throwing Shade” podcast. The candidate discussed her history as a women’s rights activist as well as her political future.
“As a man, I don’t know that much about birth control. But as a man, doesn’t that mean I know more than you do?” host Bryan Safi asked.
“Well, men know more about everything than women,” Fluke joked in response, “so I think your logic is flawless.”
More seriously, Fluke said one of the problems in this country is that not enough people understand the “real health consequences of these debates and the real impacts on people’s lives.” She said that’s why it’s so important for people like her to speak out about their own experiences and help “change the conversation.”
Later in the interview, Fluke playing “Shade or No Shade” with Safi and his co-host Erin Gibson. For the record, she would throw shade at the anti-vaccination movement but would not throw shade at Angelina Jolie as Maleficent. She also really loves R2-D2.
