Did I miss the deadline for alternative opinions on
Sandra Fluke?

What with liberal women constantly talking about
their vaginas suddenly pretending to be offended by
the word "s l u t," and conservatives pretending to
be as pussified as liberals about the nasty names
they've been called, I never got an answer to the
most pressing question about Sandra Fluke: Who are
you again?

Was Fluke dragged out of obscurity after the women
of America took a vote and chose her as our
spokeswoman? Please, Sandra, we know how deeply
private, publicity-shy and terribly busy with law
school you are, but we need you to speak for us!

I don't think that happened. Rather, Fluke is the
latest in a long line of my absolute favorite
liberal typology: hysterical drama queens.

From Murphy Brown to the Jersey Girls, Cindy
Sheehan, Joe Wilson and the New School's Jean Rohe,
these fantasists inject themselves into a boiling-
hot public debate and then claim victim status when
anyone criticizes them.

At least since I've been keeping score, liberals had
their first brush with the dark night of fascism in
1992, when Dan Quayle said of a fictional TV
character: "It doesn't help matters when prime-time
TV has Murphy Brown ... mocking the importance of
fathers by bearing a child alone and calling it just
another lifestyle choice."

Suddenly, it was 1939 Germany and multimillionaire
Hollywood elites were the Jews.

At the Emmy Awards ceremony that year, the creator
of "Murphy Brown," Diane English, took the occasion
to say: "I would like to thank our sponsors for
hanging in there when it was getting really
dangerous."

Really dangerous? You want "really dangerous"? Try
being a pedestrian crossing Ocean Avenue in Santa
Monica when Diane English is being driven to the
airport! (A year earlier, English's husband mowed
down the matriarch of Santa Monica's Chez Jay,
killing her, while driving his wife to the airport.)

Marge Tabankin, executive director of the Hollywood
Women's Political Committee, said: "The community
feels targeted. It's created a chill and fear
reminiscent of the '50s. Let's face it: We feel
we're being used as whipping boys."

Yes, Hollywood liberals have got balls to spare, and
that's why I admire them so much.

But the Academy Award winners of liberal martyrdom
are the Dixie Chicks. In 2003, Chick Natalie Maines
sucked up to a Bush-hating London audience by
saying, "Just so you know, we're ashamed the
president of the United States is from Texas."

What an odd coincidence that the only city Maines
attacked Bush in was London! In a way, it was lucky
for the band that, in their entire 60-city world
tour, Maines claimed to be embarrassed by Bush only
in London and not, say, Lubbock, Texas.

But at least we had heard of Murphy Brown and the
Dixie Chicks before they demanded we all stand in
awe of their raw courage.

Fluke was an absolute nobody who simply thrust
herself into the limelight. She's more the Jean Rohe
iteration of the liberal drama queen.

Rohe, you will recall, was the student speaker at
the 2006 New School commencement proceedings, who
bravely insulted the official speaker, Sen. John
McCain.

As Rohe described her decision to attack the invited
speaker, every person she talked to the day before
the ceremony hated McCain with blind fury. At two
graduation ceremonies a day earlier, attacks on
McCain brought wild cheers from the audience.

Rohe's resolve to tell the audience what it wanted
to hear was only hardened when she was told there
would be media at the event.

Sensing that fake heroism was within her grasp, Rohe
explained: "It was something I didn't want to do,
but knew I had to out of an obligation to my own
values" -- such as the value of being popular, of
getting a standing ovation and of being praised for
her courage.

Liberals' idea of questioning authority is to check
with the authorities to see if a "Question
Authority" bumper sticker would be popular.

So, back to Fluke: Who is she, and how did she
become the spokesperson for American womanhood? If
we're allowed to submit names, I think we can do
better than a Georgetown law student whose claim to
fame is that she belongs to a college club on
"reproductive justice."

Pursuing a typical path to liberal heroics, Fluke
was an utter nobody whom the Democrats substituted
in a last-minute witness-switch to testify about
contraception -- as if her haircut isn't birth
control enough -- at a hearing on "religious
liberty."

Despite her credentials as a heretofore unheard-of
"birth control activist," the Oversight and
Government Reform Committee declined to accept this
11th-hour witness on the grounds that Fluke did not
have appropriate credentials for any congressional
hearing, much less one on religious liberty.

That was the Republicans' first foray into
"silencing" Fluke's "voice."

Nancy Pelosi used an even less appropriate committee
to ensure that Fluke's "voice" would be heard -- the
Democrats' Steering and Policy Committee, the normal
function of which is to give House Democrats
committee assignments.

One longtime Democratic operative admitted privately
that Fluke was the least-qualified witness ever to
appear before a congressional committee.

As a result of the huge commotion the Democrats'
made of Fluke's "testimony," she was ridiculed the
same way people in ridiculous situations often are.
She was called some mean names: "s l u t,"
"prostitute," "law student" ...

In full indignation, Fluke said her critics were
trying "to silence women's voices." She said this on
ABC, CBS, NBC, MSNBC, CNN, NPR and a number of other
national media outlets.

Thus, Fluke became a liberal hero even braver than
an actress standing up for @b0rt!0n rights in front
of a Bill Maher audience.

President Obama called Fluke and told her that her
parents should be proud of her and to make sure she
was OK. Hillary Clinton said conservatives were
trying to control women. Bill Clinton called her to
see if she had any plans for the weekend.

(Fluke seems to be holding up wonderfully under the
nightmare of constant TV appearances. In fact, if I
didn't know better, I'd think she's enjoying herself
tremendously.)

I don't care what liberals believe. Just please stop
telling me they're courageous for saying exactly
what every non-Fox media outlet in America is dying
to hear, or I'll throw up harder than Rick Santorum
did when he read John F. Kennedy's speech.
