It’s Ok When My Tribe Does It: Part 76

Yet another example of political tribalism:

You’ve probably heard the recidivist jackass Rush Limbaughcalled a Georgetown law student Sandra Fluke “a slut” and “a prostitute” after she testified before about wanting the Jesuits who run her college to pay for her birth control pills. Just to make sure that nobody but nobody ever gets sexually aroused again, the broadcaster who once “had talent on loan from God” spun out a scenario in which he would also watch a video of Fluke having sex. Limbaugh subsequently fake-apologized for his untoward remarks. Why a fake apology? Because being a former Oxycontin addict and super-conservative marrying man means never having to say you’re sorry. Not as long as a Democrat’s in the White House at least.

But the comedy ain’t over yet. Over at The New Republic, Timothy Noah explains why it’s like totally different when Bill Maher calls Sarah Palin “a twat” and “a cunt,” or when Keith Olbermann calls Michelle Malkin a “mashed-up bag of meat with lipstick on it.”
