a thought

So, I've been thinking about this whole Limbaugh/Fluke flap a bit, and I think that maybe I've figured something out. Republicans have, when confronted with the misogyny that seems to permeate the GOP and conservative commentators, pointed to more liberal commentators like Bill Maher and their descriptions of some of the more prominent conservative women, such as Michelle Bachmann or Ann Coulter. And while they are perhaps correct to do so, it's curious that they only seem to do so when they are themselves are being attacked for their own harsh name-calling. As if, the rest of the time, they just dont care what's said about their women-folk, that it is only when they need a convenient defense for their own behavior that they turn to the Well You Do It Too defense, but are otherwise silent.

Maybe not, just a thought.
