WASHINGTON (AP) -

Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum says radio host Rush Limbaugh was "being absurd" when he suggested a college student record sex tapes and share them in exchange for contraception.

Santorum told CNN on Friday that Limbaugh is an "entertainer" taking an absurd point of view.

Georgetown University law student Sandra Fluke testified before a House committee last week on the administration's policy requiring religion-affiliated institutions to give employees access to health insurance that covers birth control.

Limbaugh said Fluke's insistence on wanting contraception made her a "slut" and a "prostitute." He said if Fluke wanted contraception, he wanted something in return, such as a sex tape.

President Barack Obama, members of Congress and women's groups have supported Fluke in the wake of criticism aimed at Limbaugh's comments.
