Even in the benighted 70's, even as a benighted teenager, I knew better than to call any girl a "slut" or a "prostitute."
What interests me about the Limbaugh thing, other than his apparent lack of awareness that the Pill costs the same whether you have a little sex or a lot of sex, is what he does from here.
I think he's managed to dance on the edge for a long time (to me, he's been over the edge many times), but has had either an innate instinct about how far he can go, or has just figured his followers will follow him anywhere. (Which, by the comments I've read, is still true. His advertisers, not so much.)
So...how does he proceed? Does he take a step back, think about what he's saying? Go on as usual and trust in his instincts? Can he even say anything interesting if he has to step back from his usual blowhard persona?
He'll be watched like a hawk for awhile. Has he been defanged? Has his viagra of bile been taken away from him?
I'm not hopeful.
