The Fonz does his best “both sides do it” routine, e.g. Chris Matthews called Hillary Clinton “Nurse Ratched,” and “Madame Defarge”, so that proves liberals (we all know how awesomely liberal Chris Matthews is of course) are just as sexist blah blah blah.
Here’s the thing: Rush’s “slut” comments were over the line but it was the “sex tape” comment that really creeped people out. I think it creeps people (or at least me) out so much that they don’t want to refer to it at all. It’s like that bad episode of Law & Order SVU that you had to turn off 20 minutes in.
The right can spew all the false equivalences they want, but Bill Maher calling Sarah Palin a “twat” (while reprehensible) just doesn’t compare with Rush Limbaugh’s sick sex tape fantasies.
