Throughout mankind’s history, vile men have cast aspersions on women’s virtue for political purposes. The latest attacks on Republican and conservative women are just more on an ages-long trend. When you can’t defeat them with ideas, you diminish them through sex. My theory is that the mental impotence gets translated into sexual aggression, but then, that’s just a theory.
Now we have a new version of that trend, namely Playboy mag posting (and then deleting, but you can view the NOT SUITABLE FOR WORK article here) a 10-page, illustrated and cross-linked article about hatefu**ing (the new word for rape) 10 conservative women. The outrage in the media? None. Instead, Tommy Christopher got fired from AOL for condemning it.
The women Playboy picked are not the only ones. Carrie Prejean and a list of others have been targets because they are not liberals. That’s the only criteria.
But Letterman’s trying to be edgy while unfunny, so now he’s come up with this,
Attacking women for political purposes is an old story that is despicable and vile enough, but what is it with these impotent jerks and Palin’s children?
Just when you think they can’t stoop any lower: CBS has another jerk comparing Palin to an STD.
