Liberal writer Kirsten Powers isn’t making excuses for her side when it comes to the double standards of the left-wing intelligentsia including the Obama Administration when it comes to Rush Limbaugh and Bill Maher.
She did so earlier this week (as noted by Quin Hillyer) and has done so again. Needless to say, Powers isn’t endearing herself to her ideological brethren. Enter Keith Olbermann:
The most desperate attempt to avoid the reality of liberal misogyny was spearheaded by Keith Olbermann, who crawled out of his cave to accuse me of “defending Rush Limbaugh” because I pointed out liberal piggishness. On his Current TV show last night, the former sportscaster informed his viewer to ignore me because I was just a “house-tamed Fox News liberal.” After he also tweeted his attacks – which were echoed by other liberals trying to distort what I said – his (presumably “progressive”) followers let me know that I was a “wind-up toy” and a “bobblehead” and “just another brainless plastic doll Fox puts on camera to appease the horned up 60-year old white dudes at home.” All the typical insults that male political analysts and columnists get, I’m sure.
Don’t forget: liberals are the feminists, it’s the GOP who hates women.
Powers also lambastes David Axelrod for criticizing Mitt Romney for not condemning Rush Limbaugh vigorously enough while agreeing to appear on Maher’s show. Axelrod said, “If you don’t have the strength to stand up to the most strident voices in your party, how are you going to stand up to Ahmadinejad?”
Well, given how the Obama Administration has spent most of the past three years giving Israel a harder time over building houses in Jerusalem than it has to Iran for building a nuclear weapon that’s chutzpah.
In any case, Power’s column is well worth our attention.
