Sandra Fluke Cartoon Creates Controversy Of Its Own (PHOTO)

With advertisers fleeing and public outcry refusing to die down, Rush Limbaugh might feel like he doesn't have a friend in the world.

But conservative cartoonist Gary McCoy seems to side with Limbaugh in a new cartoon showing Sandra Fluke as an overweight hypocrite looking for a government handout.

The cartoon below shows Fluke's character holding a pro-choice sign and saying, "stay out of my uterus government." In the next panel, she says, "After paying for my birth control."

As she says this, Fluke's character writes, "for a good time call ... " on a bathroom door.

The New York Daily News notes that the cartoon repeats the inaccurate claim that Fluke wants the government to pay for her birth control. Fluke is actually calling for her university's private insurance to cover the cost of the drug.

An MSNBC commenter summed up their reaction to the cartoon thusly, "Cartoonist made 'pro choice' women appear: fat, ugly, bitchy, slutty, selfish, and obnoxious. Whatever political point Cartoonist intended to make here has been caught up in his generalized portrayal of pro choice women.”

McCoy's drawing isn't the only pro-Limbaugh cartoon. The New Civil Rights Movement found this cartoon by Mike Lester that seems to depict President Obama as Fluke's pimp.
