Hell Has Frozen Over: Sandra Fluke Nominated Person of the Year

Time has nominated the new face of birth control as their “Person of the Year 2012.”

Sandra Fluke — the recently graduated 31-year-old Georgetown law student who rose to prominence this year after she advocated for free-birth control before Congress and radio host Rush Limbaugh called her a “slut” — is now one of 40 nominations for Time Magazine’s annual honor.

Fluke and Limbaugh became part of the story line in the so-called Republican “war on women” and she went on to become a Barack Obama campaign surrogate.

The newly minted lawyer secured a Democratic National Convention speaking slot, and spent much of the campaign discussing issues that assisted in Obama’s significant margin of victory among single women voters.
