…yeah, I’m going to get people shaking their fingers at me for saying that.
(H/T Hot Air) Anyway, credit where it’s due to the View: they handled their response to Larry Flynt’s latest tired outrage (creating an obscene fake picture of conservative commentator SE Cupp) about as well as anybody could have expected them to.
No excuses, no apologetics, no attempt to try to change the subject when Cupp pointed out that this was not an exactly surprising thing to have happen to a prominent conservative/libertarian woman. Particularly when it comes to Larry Flynt, who is of course a bitter old paraplegic who – due to an sudden encounter with a sniper bullet in the early Eighties – hasn’t had an erection for longer than some people reading this have been alive. Not that this was a particular blow to the gene pool, all things considered.
Hey. Freedom of speech, remember? Because I just had the happy thought that if Flynt doesn’t want to follow the courtesies of Western society – if, in fact, he wishes to defecate all over them – then he has no kick coming* when people treat him the same way…
