Are Liberals Simply Sexist?

This theme has been explored but as women rise on the conservative side of the spectrum, I am increasingly interested in the udder vapidness of the critiques I hear from the media, friends and family.  The argument is always..."can you believe she said xxx  yyy????....isn't she as dumb as a XXX YYY!!"   Of course, comparing to the "simple mistakes"  or "brain fart" statements of their candidates only leads to further argument.  Then, they go home and watch MSNBC or ABC, etc, and their beliefs are reinforced by the choices and slants of the coverage.

 I don't think these elements/people are necessarily misogynists, I just don't believe they are true feminists/humanitarians.  They respect other peoples' opinions so long as such opinions agree with their own.   I think they either simply hate conservatives or love their own viewpoints so much that they quickly throw all of their high-brow, superior beliefs overboard.  

Women are clearly more susceptible to disgusting innuendo, double-standards and outright attacks, just ask Hillary.  

I'm not fascinated by Sarah Palin or Michelle Bachmann but I am fascinated by the liberal/progressive fixation on them and other conservative women.  The hypocrisy never ceases to amaze me and I will be paying more attention to this in coming posts.  

Compare Obama's mistake to the media attention Bachmann received on the networks just yesterday.

Michele Bachmann Gets John Wayne’s Birthplace Wrong

Mainstream media covers up horrifying Obama mistake

No one in mainstream media seems inclined to mention Barack Obama’s horrifying mistake last Thursday when, speaking at Fort Drum,  he said that SFC Jared Monti was “the first person who I was able to award the Medal of Honor to who actually came back and wasn’t receiving it posthumously.” Alas, he was mistaken. He awarded the Medal of Honor to Jared Monti posthumously in 2009 and awarded the Medal of Honor in person to SSG Sal Giunta in person in 2011. Obama later apologized for this mistake, but it’s really dismaying that a president who spoke movingly and even eloquently in awarding the Medal of Honor made a mistake of this magnitude.

“It shouldn’t take a teleprompter for the C-in-C to get it right,” writes military blogger Black Five. It’s interesting that mainstream media journalists who are so eager to zing Michele Bachmann for getting John Wayne’s birthplace wrong, have not been interested in asking whether this was a mistake Obama made in ad libbing or whether the White House speechwriters and fact-checkers fell down on the job. You might think that their chief motive is to make Obama look good and to suppress facts that make him look bad.
