We think NBC’s Chuck Todd doth protest too much. It was a simple enough question: is San Diego Mayor Bob Filner, who today announced he’d be entering a two-week rehab program to address his intimidating behavior and “failure to respect women,” a Democrat or a Republican? We’re pretty sure he’s a Democrat, but all we’ve heard about for months and months is the “GOP’s war on women,” so we thought we’d better check.
As Ace pointed out so well yesterday, the Filner sexual harassment story had a certain Gosnell-like quality to it. If three accusers coming forward wasn’t enough to elevate it above a “local crime story,” how about seven?
Don’t play the victim — only liberals get to do that.
Is expressing genuine outrage something only liberals get to do, too?
