All but lost amidst David Letterman’s half-hearted apology to the Governor of Alaska for his crude references to he daughter was the late night talk show host’s failure to address his description of her look as that of a “slutty flight attendant“.
Back in 1992 when then-journalist David Brock called law professor Anita Hill (who herself rose to fame for her slander of then-Supreme Court nominee Clarence Thomas) “a little bit nutty and a little bit slutty,” politically correct pundits worked themselves up into a lather. They had a point. So, if it’s inappropriate and deserving of censure to calla female law professor “slutty,” wouldn’t it then be inappropriate to so describe the appearance of a female Governor as such?
Has any conservative pundit (or other public figure) called a prominent left-of-center woman “slutty” since Brock so described Ms. Hill? If so, was he (or she) called on it?
David Letterman still has some apologizing to do.
