Michelle Malkin Hates Woman-Bashing — Unless It’s Meghan McCain And Sandra Fluke
11:15 am, April 30th | by Amy Tennery
I’m wondering because Michelle Malkin has been instrumental lately in calling out sexism among several high-profile political pundits — especially on the left. In particular, she’s led the charge on calling out what she deems to be hypocritical complaints against Rush Limbaugh. There are plenty of sexists on the left, she’s argued. And on that much, we can agree.
It confounds logic, then, that she would endorse a sexist tweet from her own website bashing two women who have been the targets of misogynistic insults from high-profile pundits lately. Curious.
After the White House Correspondents’ Dinner this weekend, Meghan McCain tweeted a photo of herself with Sandra Fluke saying, “My fav meeting of the night, the very brave and badass Sandra Fluke!” After receiving (what we assume to be) a flood of “wait, really?” responses to her tweet, McCain then told everyone to relax, noted that she’s still a pro-lifer and that, yep, she’s capable of getting along with someone who has different political views, especially since she shares Fluke’s experience of “being called a slut.”
Ohhhhh, I get it, Malkin. It’s a Valley Girl joke! Because, like zomg no way, McCain is such a ditz. And those two just make you want to, like, totally vom.
Thank goodness you’re here to defend us from sexism, Malkin.
