I am confused. . .

Excerpt from column by Larry Elder

The “firestorm” over Limbaugh’s “sexism” would be convincing — were it not for its selective nature. Where’s the outrage when the misogyny comes from the left?

Ed Schultz, for example, the blowtorch left-wing MSNBC host, called conservative radio show host Laura Ingraham a “right-wing slut” and a “talk slut.” Isn’t the “s” word — aside from the “c” word — the worst anti-woman slur a man can make? But if Schultz suffered a loss of advertisers, we never heard about it. No activists pumped out press releases arguing that a man who calls a woman a “slut” because of her political conservatism maligns all conservative woman. His punishment? One week’s suspension without pay.

The sexism police long ago exempted Bill Clinton from any conversation about ill-treatment of women. Some of the same people who condemn Limbaugh for his treatment of Fluke go deaf, dumb and blind over Clinton’s treatment of and statements about the women who dared confront him.
