This really is a historic moment. With California gubernatorial candidate Meg Whitman being called a "whore" by Jerry Brown's campaign with very little retraction on his part, and The View's Joy Behar calling Nevada Senate candidate Sharron Angle a "b*tch" who "is going to hell,"liberal hypocrisy has reach a new height of double standard. Conservatives have raised an eyebrow to the viciousness of the latest attacks, but considered it status quo among a media that regularly trashes female republican politicians as airheads, whores or worse. (Remember when David Letterman called Sarah Palin's teen daughter a whore?)
Conservatives are therefore shocked that the National Organization for Women (NOW) seems to have found their long-lost conscience again and has come out against a new round of sexual harassment against Republican Delaware Senate candidate Christine O'Donnell. To be sure, they make it clear that they hope she loses, but they state that "That does not mean it's acceptable to use slut-shaming against her, or any woman."
