The hypocrisy on the left about Rush Limbaugh’s inept attempt at humor in discussing Sandra Fluke’s condom fetish is not unexpected, but is worth noting.

Remember when Sarah Palin was called a “Cunt” by a parade of lefties?

The list includes Bill Mahrer and Howard Stern as well.

Where was the outrage and boycotts over Palin? I don’t recall any of the folks upset at Limbaugh’s comments about Fluke expressing similar disgust and outrage over the attacks on Palin. Do you? (If so, please provide the links, I want to give credit where credit is due).

But there is anger a plenty at Rush. He got the economic gun pointed at his head today and had to retreat. Finally had to eat some crow. I am actually with Rush Limbaugh in terms of being outraged by Sandra Fluke. She thinks that I must subsidize her sexual activity? Good God!! Where is the concept of personal responsibility anymore?

But Limbaugh bombed in calling her a “slut.” I realize he fancies himself a satirist and smart guy, but he is quite clumsy and juvenile when it comes to trying to ridicule the likes of Sandra Fluke. I would have started out by noting that aspirin (which Ms. Fluke should hold between her knees) is not that expensive. But not Rush. Calling her a slut and prostitute was his shot at being a funny guy. Not funny.

If you are outraged by the left’s filthy smear of Sarah Palin then you can appreciate why those very leftists get up in arms when one of their own is called a “slut” and a “prostitute.”

Too bad neither Mahrer nor Stern have been called on the carpet and compelled to repent. Rush has failed to learn their lesson–if you go on cable you are fire proof.

A pox on all of their houses. I think Fluke is a flake and a hack. But those are not derogatory, sexist terms. I must say I am entertained by the flip flopping outrage of those on both the right and the left. They don’t mind using sexist language as long as it is against their opponent. At least they are consistent on that point.
