The conservative columnists in the Sun-Gazette and others that attempt to defend Rush Limbaugh's crude remarks about Sandra Fluke have a poor argument.
They say that the media doesn't report verbal assaults made by left leaning commentators such as the ones made by Olbermann, Maher and others on conservative women.
However, the examples they give are public figures and as such are subject to attack on both sides. It happens all the time, not just on conservative women. Limbaugh was attacking a private citizen, not a public figure.
Many claim Limbaugh is the leader of the Republican Party. As such he should be more honorable and respectful. Bill Maher and the others they cite are far from the leaders of the Democratic Party and therefore, their comments would not be as newsworthy.
The right wing columnists also mention the reprehensible remarks Maher said about Bristol Palin and complain they were not widely reported but Limbaugh's making fun of Chelsea Clinton's looks calling her the "White House Dog" did not make national news either and she was just 13 at the time.
I can remember years ago Limbaugh calling women in general "stupid" because prior to the 2004 election John Kerry was far ahead of George Bush at one point in the polls with women. Apparently, he has a serious issue with women.
