One "Slut" Does Not a "War on Women" Make

BlogHer Original Post

Enough is enough.

I expect it from the pundits who bash Republicans for ratings, but when Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz lays all the blame of the recent political garbage at the feet of Republicans, calling it a "war on women" -- I'm gonna call shenanigans.

Since when did Rush Limbaugh take the place of God and savior?

Nobody needs to apologize for that buffoon except him and even then, he doesn't mean it. He's protecting his advertising dollars, because that's what an entertainer does.

Does President Obama genuflect to lefty pundits who wax moronic?

On what planet do we live where people actually think some lowbrow remark as deep as puddle coughed up by a talk show host matters on our political landscape?

Rush Limbaugh
Oct 02, 2003; Philadelphia, PA, USA; Radio talk show host RUSH LIMBAUGH was the keynote speaker at the National Association of Broadcasters convention held at the Pennsylvania Convention Center in Philadelphia. Limbaugh was in the news after he resigned from a position at ESPN after making a statement about Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb. Rush Limbaugh's name has also been linked by law enforcement to an investigation into a black market drug ring in Palm Beach County, Florida.

Giving Limbaugh any credence, believing that he holds an ounce of influence in the GOP -- or in any influential circle, for that matter -- gives him more credit than he deserves.

You're all just filling the void Rush still has over not getting a date to his senior prom. Or whatever.

And David Gregory can suck it. He sits there on Sunday's Meet the Press and jumps all over former House Speaker Newt Gingrich and the other 2012 presidential hopefuls for not "denouncing" Limbaugh.

Did he bump his head?

Let's just nip this whole theory in the bud -- the one in which conservatives all share the same brain.

Andrew Breitbart recently died. That was the first time I saw his picture; never read a word he wrote, never ever.

I couldn't tell you if he was a Fox News contributor. Know why? Brace yourselves: I don't watch Fox News.

When my parents visit at Christmas, I forbid them from ever stopping at the channel because all the yelling and talking over each other gives me a headache.

More confessions: I don't know how Mike Murphy gets work or what policies proposed by Arnold Schwarzenegger supported his claim to be a "Republican."

But I do know this. There's no "war on women" -- at least, not the one Ms. Wasserman means.

The real war on women: homelessness, domestic violence, equal pay for equal work, racial and gender inequality, work vs stay-at-home moms, quality education and healthcare services.

I don't know this chick Rush slandered, and I don't care.
