Kirsten Powers, a liberal, hit it out of the park: “This isn’t really about misogyny; this is about the Democratic Party. And that’s what it always comes down to, it’s a proxy war for the Democratic Party.”
If you haven’t already read Ms. Powers column at the Daily Beast, click here to read it first.
Kirsten Powers was on Fox today with Megyn Kelly, where she hit the nail in the head with the hammer over the whole Rush Limbaugh/Sandra Fluke controversy.
This isn’t really about misogyny Megyn. This is about the Democrat Party and that’s what it always comes down to. It’s a proxy war for the Democratic party, they can use it for the election, for part of the war on women, and they can attack Rush Limbaugh because they hate Rush Limbuagh because he’s a conservative.
It has nothing to do with misogyny or sexism or anything like that. Because if it did, they would flip out over Ed Schultz, over Matt Taibbi at rolling stone who has said stuff that literally you cannot repeat on the air. I mean it’s so disgusting…
They overlook it because they’re liberal, and liberal men are allowed to be misogynist apparently.
Thank god someone on the left sees the hypocrisy in this all. Sandra Fluke was a nobody before Rush even uttered her name. The Democrats, like every other situation, have turned this into a political proxy war to help Obama in November. I mean, why did the President of the United States and former Speaker of the House call her to offer ‘condolences’ or whatever over a comment made by a Conservative commentator? Political purposes. The Democrats have the momentum right now, especially at a time when most are done with the Republican primary.
Here is a great except from her column that explains more in detail.
But if Limbaugh’s actions demand a boycott–and they do–then what about the army of swine on the left?
During the 2008 election Ed Schultz said on his radio show that Sarah Palin set off a “bimbo alert.” He called Laura Ingraham a “right-wing slut.” (He later apologized.) He once even took to his blog to call yours truly a “bimbo” for the offense of quoting him accurately in a New York Post column.
Keith Olbermann has said that conservative commentator S.E. Cupp should have been aborted by her parents, apparently because he finds her having opinions offensive. He called Michelle Malkin a “mashed-up bag of meat with lipstick.” He found it newsworthy to discuss Carrie Prejean’s breasts on his MSNBC show…
The grand pooh-bah of media misogyny is without a doubt Bill Maher.
Left-wing darling Matt Taibbi wrote on his blog in 2009, “When I read [Malkin’s] stuff, I imagine her narrating her text, book-on-tape style, with a big, hairy set of balls in her mouth.”
I even wrote a column today in the Washington Times Communities, specifically honing in on one of Limbaugh’s former advertisers, Carbonite.
