Eh, throw in the books while you're at it.Scientists may someday discover the parasite that manipulates conservative brains into vomiting up punchlines from ’70s-era “The Lighter Side Of….” cartoons whenever the word “feminist” is mentioned within a 400-yard radius. (You’ll know we’re close to a cure when John McCain, out of nowhere, starts fretting about just how much these parasite paternity lawsuits are costing the gubmint.) But, until the science is finally settled, conservatives will continue to enter a hazy and scary pre-disco fugue state in which Vietnam is still winnable whenever feminazis pen open letters to bloated women-hating AM radio deejays. More data after the jump!

From Mediaititeis:

Jane Fonda, Gloria Steinem and Robin Morgan [are] calling for Limbaugh’s show to be taken off the air, because although he may be “constitutionally entitled to his opinions,” they argued that he was not entitled to express them on the radio.

And so the conservative bat signal lights up the night sky, summoning the most dated possible references to take down these mouthy women’s libbers! Come Donner, come Maidenform, come Ho Chi Minh!

Most important event in American history.

Big Journalism, you're swimming in it.

Yeah, that looks about right. [Fox Nation/Mediaite]

    Yes, why don't bra burning liberal women come to the defense of conservative women who just want to put men in charge of women's health, welfare and reproduction. Why oh why?

    • Lynne

      Because we hate bras and don't wear them…silly. Oh, that wasn't the point, was it? It's not our fault if conservative women want to be strapped in (by bras and conservative men). They're doing what they choose to do…oh, there's that awful word again….

      • comrad_darkness

        The only nice thing about bras is removing them.

      If conservative women are too dang stupid to stand up for their rights, then screw 'em. These chicks are truly stupid and are willing to do anything to get a man, even if the man isn't worth a darn cent. Like those chicks who like to be beards for money, social status or for a Cadillac.

  • Arken

      • tessiee

        I see what you did there… and There.

  • Perhaps the reason why femininazees don't burn their bras when conservative women are attacked is because they're saying the same stupid shit that their fat ugly male counterparts are saying. Nobody likes a collaborationist.

    • Naked_Bunny

      Since conservative women use contraception and get abortions, feminists are defending them, in spite of their collaboration with the oppressors.

      • Good point. (Damn, why didn't *I* think of that?)

        • redarmyzombie

          You know, this sorta reminds me of the town hall meeting I went to during the health care "debate".

          The whole room was chock full of teabaggers heckling our congressman, who tried in vain to hold a reasoned conversation with them. After nearly an hour of being shouted down, he he asked, "Okay, how many people are opposed to government, run healthcare?" Nearly every arm in the room flies up. "Okay, now how many people here have medicare?" Again, nearly every hand in the room was raised. "Now, how many of you are satisfied with it?" Every one of the dumb b@stards had their hand in the air. He concluded with "Thank you, that was all I needed to know."

          Oh, the dumb, dumb, dumb, dumb irony…

          • Indeed. Or all those wonderful vets, who, when you get to talking with them, they're full of "the gummint this," and "the gummint that," and none of it any good, of course, till you ask them where they get their health care and then it's all, well, the VA is great, long as they let you in, they'll even give you free Viagra. It's all one can do to keep from choking the living shit out of them, the stupid fucks.

  • PuckStopsHere

    And to think Rush was a mere anal cyst away from being gunned down by Jane Fonda!

    Oh poor, sweet, dumber-than-shit Elizabeth. Darling, the only reason why people pay attention to you is because they fantasize about you one day torching your double-D boulder holders on camera.

    • Even *then,* it's not like they're actually paying attention to any of the shit she *says,* dood.

  • Puffperney

    Jane always screws up every good cause she chooses to get involved in.

    Yes, Rush does have the right to express his views on the radio; thanks for giving the women haters a legitimate "liberal assault on the constitution" leg to stand on. Thanks a lot.

    • Arken

      The Vietnam War was decades ago. She later said that she was stupid and naive and regretted what she did. Plenty of people get forgiven of worse things than her. Can she never, ever express anything about even something as basic as this because of it?

      • memzilla

        Yeah, it's not like there was ever an alcoholic coke-head who served as president who was "forgiven" by the wingtards.

        • tessiee

          Who, iirc, was also against the Vietnam War; at least to the extent of having Daddy pull strings to get him out of it.

      • SorosBot

        Nope; not in wingnut land.

      • Puffperney

        Arken, I don't disagree with you. Still, were I her confidante, I would tell her to remember that every time she gets involved in a cause the old "sitting on an AA gun" thing is going to be thrown into the mix. I don't think it will ever go away; too many people won't let it.

        • Arken

          I think you're wrong and it will go away. I think most people under 40 when they hear about Jane Fonda think, if they even know who she is at all, 'the aerobics lady that married Ted Turner.'

          • Puffperney

            Yes, given enough time, it will probably go away.

          • SoBeach

            I doubt it. They'll still bring up the "Hanoi Jane" stuff decades from now.

          • SorosBot

            Well what else did she ever do besides that aerobics stuff and marrying Ted?

          • Arken

            You could see her boobs in Barbarella!

          • SorosBot

            What's Barbarella, a strip club?

          • Arken

            It's a movie that's like sci-fi crossed with a strip club and some French stuff.

          • SorosBot

            Wait, a movie? What would a professional aerobics instructor be trying to act for?

      Sadly, most undergrads in this country will have no clue what your comment means. But yes, I think left alone people might — might — forget about Hanoi Jane.

      That link shows why Limbaugh's shtick only works on the radio, with a vigilant producer's finger hovering over the dump button.

      • Plus, let's be honest about it: he's got a face (and body) made for radio. Them wimminzfolks won't listen to the shit he spouts at their husbands, mostly, but if they had to look at his fat ugly cigar-smoking mug while he haw-hawed about their pussies, you can bet your sweet mother-fucking, father-diddling ass the Teev would be turned off in one hot minute and the HoneyDo list would be dominating the next ten.

    • prommie

      All of them, Katie.

  • anniegetyerfun

    For the record, I personally believe that Rush Limbaugh is constitutionally allowed to say whatever he wants, wherever he wants, however he wants. Now, if sponsors don't want to pay for him to say it, well, that's their free speech right as well.

    I sincerley hope that Steinem et al aren't really advocating against free speech, even when its the hateful bigots like Limbaugh doing the speaking. Because that's not really helpful on any level.

    • Yea, that seems to be the way this is getting spun, to be sure. Steinem et al ought to know better. It's not like they're wet behind the ears or anything like that.

    • swordfis

      Yes indeedy.

    • TheGyrus

      Its possible that the conservatives may have given us an inaccurate characterization of whatever was that was written in the editorial.

      But they didn't provide a link, so I guess we will just have to take their word for it.

      Limbaugh can speak all he wants; I don't gptta listen to him.

  • MissTaken

    It's a year that ends with December so shouldn't Hasselbeck be out on maternity leave?

    • Tim hasn't "completed a pass" since 2007, according to his bio

    “constitutionally entitled to his opinions,” they argued that he was not entitled to express them on the radio.

  • Jane Fonda has apologized many times for what she did during Vietnam War. She also proclaimed her self a born again Christian. Those are things that usually prompt the wingers to forgive. Like with Newt's adultery, or Charles Colson's crimes (google him kids). But they don't like what she's saying, so she's still Hanoi Jane.

  • SorosBot

    And Elizabeth, guess what – you are either lying or stupid. Feminists have defending conservative women from sexist attacks, even misogynistic women like Sarah Palin, because many feminists are against all sexist insults and attacks, even directed at people they don't like.

    Your entire premise is wrong; you're asking why feminists don't do something that they actually do.

  • BarackMyWorld

    note: This is my stardardized response to every conservative who tries to imply there's a double standard. This week it happens to be Elizabeth Hasselback.

    Sandra Fluke, unlike _(insert name of consservative woman defending Limbaugh here)_ isn't a public figure with her own platform to respond to Limbaugh. But putting aside the fact that there is an accepted difference between how public figures and private citizens are treated, Rush Limbaugh didn't just call Ms. Fluke a "slut" and a "prostitute." He lied about her testimony and motives. He asked her who bought her condoms in junior high school. He said she probably had guys lined up around the block. He said she was having so much sex he was surprised she could still walk. He said she was having sex at sex-addict frequency, all the time, whenever she wants it, and called her an "amoral, baseless, no purpose to her life, woman." If you can show me an example of a liberal commentator doing something similar to this to a conservative woman, I would like to see it. Until then, please stop defending Limbaugh for just expressing an "opinion" which wasn't an opinion at all, but libel (for which he will probably be sued).

    • Jus_Wonderin

      I heard Phyllis Schafly on The Diane Rehm Show this morning, running down the rep of Sandra Fluke. Sounded like talking points memo stuff and I wanted to kick the broad through the radio in her…."that thing that can't be named".

      • BarackMyWorld

        Phyllis Schlafly's greatest accomplishment was convincing enough of the country that women shouldn't have equal rights to derail a Constitutional amendment that was on the verge of passing.

        Whenever a conservative woman (or man for that matter) speaks out about how they are supposedly treated differently because of their opinions, I think people should be reminded what the actual opinions were that got them treated differently.

      • Loaded_Pants

        "I heard Phyllis Schafly on The Diane Rehm Show this morning…"

    • I can't believe that so many people, even here on Teh Wonketz, are confusing the issue here. It is NOT about free speech at all. His right to free speech is constitutionally protected, and Congress has made no law to suppress it. However, should the *targets* of his free speech respond to his bullying by refusing to buy his advertisers' products, I fail to see how that even *raises* a free speech issue. People are free to spend their money as they please, just as that gangrenous pusbag is free to say what he pleases. Free market, not governmental suppression.
