Your first paragraph was irrelevant to my post and you're taking your frustrations with others and directing them toward me.<quoted text>Self-serving hooey.
Bachman is a self-righteous flake harkening back to McCarthy-style politics. Palin was a self-aggrandizing fluke. They both produce their own fodder for ridicule, Bachman because she's so self-absorbed, and Palin because it's a means to an end. I have the opinion I have about Palin entirely because of her performance, not her tits. I recall clearly being asked what my problem was with Palin. I laid it out point by point. Why do you suppose that the only examples you want to throw up are the few egregious examples, and tout them as representative of the whole? What of SE Cupp, Ann Coulter, Michelle Malkin, Margaret Thatcher, Star Parker, Claire Booth Luce, just off the top of my head? Looks to me like you're playing a rigged game - if we call Maher a dick, which he damn well can be, it's all fair in politics, right, and hey it is likely he has a penis, so what's the beef, right? But if a woman is called a bitch, ohmygod we're attacking her womanhood. Let's not mention the irony of your TX topix rep echoing Limbaugh in calling a private citizen a slut w/o a discouraging word. Am I advancing that as an alternate example? No, I'm saying, can it with the hyper-selective faux outrage. It is an endless carousel leading nowhere but to a bunch of chimps slinging shit.
Politics is a cut-throat game. If ya'll want to raise your skirts and squeal every time a woman is criticized, then Phyllis Schlafly was right - most women need to stay on the proverbial pedestal, and in the home if their husband says so. Politics is too dirty for your delicate sensibilities.
The actions of one Maher or Limbaugh are NOT representative of the whole. I'm responsible for my words and actions, no one else's. The criticisms I have of an individual are based on that individual's words and deeds, not his/her anatomy.
Don't do that.
Your second paragraph was a disjointed mess.
And thank you very much but I don't need you to patronize me and advise me that politics is cut-throat. Not only am I not new to the game, I just witnessed one the the all time ugliest presidential campaigns in the history of the nation and saw with my own eyes and heard with my own ears exactly what the left is capable of and the collective you have proven beyond a shadow of a doubt that anything goes. There are no limits as to what you will say and do to win. Congratulations. Civiltiy and boundaries in this civilization, has indeed taken a hike.
I didn't just roll into town Hip and I promise you you'll have to dig deeper into your bag of tricks to make this woman lift her skirt and squeal. I'm not prone to growing faint with a case of the vapors over language so you can leave that one at the door. The namecalling doesn't faze this poster but don't sit there and pretend you can't see the duplicity. You cannot sit there being a card carrying member of the party who claims to be fighting a war on women while loading up you missle launchers and declaring a war on women who you don't agree with. From where this citizen sits, it's about the only thing under the leadership of Obama that's transparent and if you are going to deny it's existence, you are being purposely obtuse.
Let me clue you in on something because from all appearances history, philosophy and politics is new territory for you. The behavior of a civilized nation and the charecter of it's people is dictated by what it's leaders condone and who it's leaders are. I'm not impressed and neither are millions of others so the next time you decide to take someone to task on this, namely ME, I suggest you come equipped with more than sloppy diatribe.
