(Newser) – Fox man Bill O'Reilly is after Sandra Fluke again, claiming the "committed leftist" who wants him to fund her sex life is at the "center of a campaign to reelect" Barack Obama. "Let me get this straight, Ms. Fluke," said O'Reilly in an earlier program. "You want me to give you my hard-earned money so you can have sex? Good grief." In fact, Fluke wants her university health insurance (typically paid for by students) to cover birth control, as college health plans usually do if they're not affiliated with the Catholic church, notes the Huffington Post.

"I don't want to pay for Sandra Fluke's recreation," said O'Reilly. "This is madness." Because "Obamacare mandates that I have to buy health insurance," my "premiums go up a small amount" to cover female contraception, he noted. He suggested that if Fluke wants her "activities" covered by health insurance, then the government should have subsidized his college football uniforms. O'Reilly and guest Bernie Goldberg rehashed their views yesterday, with Goldberg characterizing Fluke as the "poster person for the entitlement society." At least they didn't use the S word.
