What Rush said about the woman who testified that she needed other people to pay for her contraception was rude and inappropriate. He shouldn’t have said it and he should have apologized.
But was it worse than these things, said — not by loud-mouth talk-show hosts — but by elected members of the Democratic Party?
Sen. Frank Lautenberg said Republicans want to take us to “the Dark Ages … when women were property that you could easily control, trade even, if you wanted to.”
That’s not just rude and inappropriate. It’s an outrageous lie.
Sen. Charles Schumer said this. “Let’s admit what this debate is really and what Republicans really want to take away from American women. It is contraception.”
Another outrageous lie.
The media hounds every Republican they can get their hands on to insist that they disassociate themselves from Rush and condemn his comments. Here’s an example where David Gregory goes after Newt Gingrich.
Has anyone in the press asked Obama if he will call on Lautenberg and Schumer to apologize?
Of course not. There is a complete double standard — which is, in fact, a slander against double standards. This isn’t just a double standard. The main-stream media is clearly, unquestionably in bed with the Democrats.
