Conservatives are always told they don’t do enough to reach across the aisle. We’re divisive, obstructionist, and hostile to bipartisanship. So in the spirit of unity and comity, I’m announcing the formation of a new social-justice group: Ladies Against Senator Sleaze-Bob.
Now all I need are some principled Democratic ladies and liberal-media lionesses to step up to the plate with me to protest the vulgar, sexist behavior of Senator Bob Menendez (D., N.J.).
Surely, Nancy Pelosi, Debbie Wasserman Schultz, Cher, Sandra Fluke, Eva Longoria, and I can all agree that when a powerful Washington politician abuses his power to victimize young women, we should join hands to demand justice. Right?
Surely, Barbara Walters, Diane Sawyer, Arianna Huffington, Rachel Maddow, Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, Lena Dunham, Tina Fey, and every card-carrying member of NOW across America are outraged by this Beltway playboy’s tawdry exploitation of underage prostitutes.
And surely, Hillary Clinton, Valerie Jarrett, Stephanie Cutter, and Michelle Obama are all sickened by this top Democrat’s profligate election-season jaunts to the Dominican Republic on a shady donor’s private plane.
Oh, wait. What? You haven’t heard about Menendez’s war on women from the left-wing War on Women brigade? Nary a progressive peep? Well, knock me over with a Code Pink feather boa. Not sure how the story could have slipped their news-savvy feminist minds.
