(LOS ANGELES TIMES) -- Patricia Heaton's rush to support Rush Limbaugh this week shouldn't come as a surprise to anyone who has closely followed her rise as one of the most successful comedic actresses in Hollywood.
Heaton, a Twitter power-user who dubs her more than 69,000 followers "Tweatons," used the social media platform to join Limbaugh in blasting Georgetown University student Sandra Fluke for speaking out in favor of President Obama's proposal that health insurance provide free birth control.
A sample of Heaton's Tweets, since deleted: "Hey G-Town Gal: If your parents have to pay for your birth control, maybe they should get a say in who you sleep with! Instant birth control!" and "G-Gal: you’ve given yer folks great gift for Mother’s/Father’s Day! Got up in front of whole world & said I’m having tons of sex- pay 4 it!"
