Recently there’s been a substantial swing of women voters toward the Democratic Party. Gee, I wonder why that happened?
In other entertainment news, I see that comedian Louis C.K. was invited and then dis-invited to appear at the Radio and TV Congressional Correspondentsâ€™ Dinner, because a couple of years ago he tweeted some naughty things about Sarah Palin.
Now, this is no where in the same ball park as what Rushbo did to
Sarah Sandra Fluke. But I’m not sorry some rightie “correspondents” like Greta Van Susteren complained about Louis C.K. It really is not OK to use sexual “jokes” to slam any woman, no matter how much you don’t like her. It’s as bad as using the “n” word to insult, say, Michael Steele. Sexually aggressive language puts down all women, because it suggests there is something substandard about being a women. And truly, Palin’s gender is probably the least objectionable thing about her.
So call Palin a twit, but not a tw*t, please.
Update: Some newspapers pulling next week’s Doonesbury.
Update: A Louis C.K. video that’s kind of on topic.
