Let’s take a trip down memory lane: Do you remember that time conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh declared Georgetown University law student Sandra Fluke a “slut” and a “prostitute” for lobbying for more affordable contraception? You know, before that whole Hilary Rosen/Ann Romney thing exploded all over our laptop screens and television sets? It’s rather hard to keep track of all the media fights these days, but I’ll remind you that the Fluke/Limbaugh debacle seemed to last for weeks, but now that it’s more of a “haha, remember that?” past time than an up-to-the-minute scandal, the National Organization for Women (NOW) has decided to reignite the fire on Limbaugh and protest him some more.

As much as we’d love to attend the upcoming White House Correspondents’ Dinner, we’re actually pretty relieved we won’t be going, as the awkwardness of the Huffington Post table will probably be felt throughout the entire room.

For a while there, we thought people had finally stopped talking about conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh’s unnecessary verbal attack on Georgetown University law student Sandra Fluke…and then we were brought back to reality. Former first daughter Chelsea Clinton revived discussion on the matter during a Wednesday conference at the 92nd Street Y in Manhattan, where she introduced Fluke and said the two of them both had the unique misfortune of being made fun of by Limbaugh.

If you’re a woman who wants to hold a political seat someday, don’t waste your time dabbling into local government or community projects. Testify before Congress and pray that conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh will call you a “slut” or a “prostitute,” and get people to notice you. Apparently being qualified isn’t enough to get women to noticed anymore.

Compared to many, conservative commentator Ann Coulter waited a relatively long time to thoroughly address the Rush Limbaugh/Sandra Fluke fracas, most likely because she didn’t want to look like a complainer. That’s for the left to do, says the New York Times bestselling author.

“Dancing with the Stars” finalist Bristol Palin has been waiting for President Barack Obama to call her for longer than it takes to sit through an elimination episode.

If there’s anyone we simultaneously love and fear, it’s dynamic “30 Rock” funnyman Alec Baldwin, whose passionate tendencies have been well documented by the media.

It’s hard to believe that it was less than two weeks ago when Rush Limbaugh first apologized for calling Georgetown student Sandra Fluke a “slut” and a “prostitute” during his show. The timeline is a tough thing to wrap your head around, due in large part to the unending wave of minutiae-laden tirades that have resulted from it. Yes, Limbaugh apologized, and then we all remembered that Rush Limbaugh is Rush Limbaugh and we had a laugh at the absurd idea that any of us had cared what he thinks about women anyway.
But the story didn’t die.

Just when you thought the Rush Limbaugh/Sandra Fluke debacle couldn’t get any more ridiculous, comedian Bill Maher upped the ante by reminding us that he defended Limbaugh, but that his name-calling of former Alaska governor Sarah Palin was not as bad as the conservative radio host’s “slut” and “prostitute” remarks and was taken out of context.
