Topic: Decline of the West
You know who just about everybody failed to mention during the white-heat phase of the Limbaugh/Fluke/disgusting misogynist dustup? Andrew Sullivan. I was thinking about all the vile things that Maher and similar lowlifes had said about Sarah Palin—and I remembered Sullivan’s creepy, not to say demented obsession with her pregnancy. For months, he promoted the literally and figuratively incredible claim that Palin had not actually given birth to her son trig. No, no, it was actually Palin’s daughter Bristol who was pregnant, and Palin, who was Governor of Alaska at the time only pretended to be pregnant so as to avoid having her family values image tarnished by an out-of-wedlock birth. Or something. See here for a sample of Sullivan’s Trig Palin “commentary.” Aside from being hateful, it’s truly weird.
Now it seems to me that Sullivan’s obsessive raving and ranting about Sarah Palin’s pregnancy was actually worse that Maher’s string of offhand obscenities: It just went on and on and on. If this isn’t a prime example of misogyny, what is? I realize of course that progressives would angrily reject the proposition that Sullivan, a homosexual, could be guilty of any type of bigotry. Lucky Andrew, he belongs to one of the officially designated mascot groups of the Left. But over here in reality land we're honor-bound to expose Sullivan’s hateful, woman-bashing craziness, and pronounce the anathema upon him accordingly.
