...on Roseanne's monkeyshines, Samantha Bee's cri de cunt, and the bad faith brigades of the Right insisting that if a private business fires the one, another private business should fire the other because that's how capitalism is supposed to work (that is, like everything else, to the benefit of their tender feelings).

Something I couldn't stuff in there was Charles Two Middle Initial Cooke's gish gallop on the subject:
Imagine, if you will, that, say, Sean Hannity or Ann Coulter had called, say, Chelsea Clinton a c***. In what universe would the word have been dismissed as merely a ‘word choice’ divorced from any associated worldview?
Considering that Coulter called John Edwards a faggot and suffered no ill career effects, I think we can safely say that, in our own universe, she would continue to be employed at whatever it is she does by the same people who are pissing their knickers over Bee. There is no point in giving these assholes any quarter as regards decency, of all things.
