The True Meaning of Slutgate

Life circumstances have kept me from writing my usual Monday blog on time - sorry about that. But here's what I want to say.

I want to comment on the commotion over Rush Limbaugh's use of the word "slut" to describe law student Sandra Fluke. Fluke, as you know, argued before a house congressional committee that women need taking care of. That is, if they should take it into their fluffy little heads to have sex with someone, they can't be expected to manage the consequences all by their little selves. Someone else has got to pay for their contraception - preferably a big strong man like Barack Obama. Barack Obama has lots and lots of money. Chicks dig that. In fact, he's so powerful, he just took the money from other people. What a turn on for girly girls like Sandra!

Anyway, Rush called her a slut, probably hoping that that sort of ungentlemanly behavior toward women would land him a show on HBO like that super cool Bill Maher, who called Governor Sarah Palin the c-word (whatever that is) and entertained guests who fantasized about raping Michele Bachmann.  If only Rush could get a show like Bill Maher then he could be bitter and irrelevant too - probably the only things missing from Rush's life.

So now the left is calling for Rush's head and the right is arguing hotly that the left says equally misogynist things and even sometimes dumps their women into the water and then leaves them there locked in a car to drown while they go back to their hotel to chat with their friends and call their lawyer. And yet a leftist killer of women can go on to become the Lion of the Senate, and even a piece of work like James Carville who implied one of his boss's sexual harassment victims was trailer trash gets a network gig. Hey, maybe Rush was trying to get a network gig like James Carville!
