Even though I have some serious concerns about Michele Bachmann’s stands on social issues, I believe we should counter her with arguments rather than insults.
Some liberal personalities — as well as a good number of gay activists — have preferred instead to address her on a regular basis which the kind of slur Rush Limbaugh utters on a very (very, very) infrequent basis. Indeed, she observed as much when Piers Morgan asked her about the conservative talk show host’s ugly language, “I have gone through myself an experience more things said about me and I have never seen this level of outrage on the left.”
Rush Limbaugh has apologized. Some (most?) of Mrs. Bachmann’s critics have not.
One of those critics (who has, as far as I can determine, yet to apologize) contends that “liberals looking bad not accepting” the apology. And they still can’t let go of the story. Reporting that Limbaugh has been “targeted by multiple death threats”, Dan Riehl finds the “mainstream media . . . culpable“, citing a NewsBusters repor that ABC had aired eight Limbaugh stories in fewer than five days. (H/t Instapundit.)
Wonder how many stories ABC ran on the harsh rhetoric directed against Mrs. Bachmann. And she was subject to more than one slur by more than than one prominent left-wing pundit.
