What is a Fluke, anyway?

I’ve long believed that liberals are a group of competing parasites. Sandra Fluke is no exception, but she’s not the first parasitical fluke to enter the bloodstream.

Blood Fluke:  Parasitic trematode flatworm found primarily in Southeast Asia, North Africa, and other tropical areas. The blood fluke lives primarily in the tiny blood vessels of the intestines.  People infected with blood flukes become weakened and can die either as a direct result of the blood fluke or because it renders them incapable of fighting against other endemic diseases.

Liver Fluke:  Parasitic trematode flatworm that infects the livers of a variety of animals, including humans.  Another name for a liver fluke infestation is “rot.”  Liver fluke infestation causes abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, weakness and, eventually, liver cirrhosis, with all that cirrhosis entails.
