This civility thing could be tough on the Democrats

Writing about the backlash to the Democratic obsession with Rush Limbaugh, John Hinderaker quips that “This civility thing could be tough on the Democrats.”  Indeed, the unhappy Barney Frank should be going into overdrive “differentiating” himself from all the nasty slurs liberal pundits and entertainers have leveled against conservative women just to make clear that such potty-mouthed folks don’t speak for him or his caucus.

Wonder if he’s made up for the silence of his colleagues, two of whom failed to, as Barney might put it, “differentiate themselves” from a former funnyman’s misogynistic commentary.  Nor has Mr. Obama — even as his top campaign strategist books an appearance on said misogynist’s show.

The Democrat, Hinderaker observes,

has had nothing to say about the far worse invective that his own supporters have directed against Republican women. As I noted yesterday, he was asked a question about the double standard in his press conference yesterday, and ducked it. Bill Maher, who has contributed $1 million to re-elect Obama, called Sarah Palin a “c***” and a “dumb t***.” (Hey, when Rush rips a Democratic Party activist, at least you can print what he said on a family web site.) Obama has never criticized Maher or any of his many other supporters and minions who have kept up a steady drumbeat of hate for years.

Maybe civility is only for Republicans and their allies in the media.



  1. “Civility” is just another code word for “Shut up, Conservatives.”

  2. If you’ve never worked in a professional environment inundated with homosexuals/bisexuals, you would be unfamiliar with the misandry/misogyny within the homosexual/bisexual community. Limbaugh was wimp for apologizing. All he had to do was address the behavior of the homosexual /bisexual community.

  3. #2 He did clarify his apology, on his show, for lowering himself to their level. I think that should’ve been included in his statement.

  6. The audience for this civility shanking consists of independents, ignorants, and folks new to the voting scene. Glad the non-RNC affiliated bloggers and writers and talking heads kept up the Maher and Louis C.K. attacks.

    Now, the Left calls for civility, but Maher won’t be able to help himself – and voters will see Obama duck and cover, then double-down on the viciousness. That won’t play in Peoria.
