“In all seriousness,” Ed Morrissey asks
. . . what does it take for a Democrat to lose an endorsement from the National Organization of Women? Choosing Larry Flynt as a campaign manager? Would that at least have them hold off for at least a couple of days in order to make the endorsement not seem as blatantly partisan and mindless as their endorsement of Jerry Brown just hours after discovering that his campaign strategized over painting opponent Meg Whitman as a “whore”?
. . . .
Whitman showed that women can succeed at the highest levels of the private sector with her incredible leadership at eBay, and that women can turn that success into political force. That flies in the face of their need to hype victimization over self-determination, and demand the expansion of government interventions to dictate outcomes rather than create an equitable environment in which all can compete equally and win or lose based on their talent, drive, and fortunes.
Read the whole thing. Hugh notes the media double standard:
Imagine if a GOP candidate for governor or senator in any high profile race in the land was heard on tape either uttering the word “whore” about his Democratic woman opponent or not reacting to his aide using the term in regard to that opponent –what would the reaction of the MSM be to the story?
