Fine distinctions

To be fair and accurate, "slut shaming" doesn't seem to be the right label for what this is. Rush probably doesn't care how much sex Sandra Fluke has. It's her being—by his criteria—a liberal that means she has to be punished. If she got with the program and kept her opinions to herself he'd be asking "What's your number?" and "Do you have unresolved feelings toward your overweight father?" It is left to the reader to determine which is the harsher fate.

Oh I think we know what the harsher fate would be. He's just another provocateur who should have been dismissed long ago.

It can be a little upsetting when wise and witty people either pass away or fade from view, leaving more of the stage to aggressive morons.
