It’s always curious to see how conservatives will twist into pretzels in order to, well, eat their philosophical cake and have it, too.
A traditionalist (check) would come out and call Rep. Katie Hill a self-adoring slut.
Who else takes nude selfies of her three-way (“throuple”) indiscretions, flaunting the iron cross tattooed on her crotch, and then frames her slut-like sexual frolicking as sacred sexuality disrespected? Katie Hill did.
When a male does the same, he, too, should be dissed by conservatives as a priapic pig. And he has been over these pixelated pages. Anthony Weiner I called “an engorged organism indigenous to D.C., who was in the habit of exposing himself as often as the Kardashians do.”
But Tammy Bruce, on Tucker Carlson’s show, no less, takes the tack taken in the leftist Atlantic:
Hill engaged in a profound breach of responsibility by engaging in a sexual relationship with someone who was working for her—and by doing so while running for public office. “The mistakes I made that brought me to this moment will haunt me for the rest of my life,” she said this afternoon in her final speech on the House floor.
“Nobody is judging her personally,” reiterated Tucker Carlson.
But why not? Katie Hill is a repulsive slut.
Likewise, Bruce was careful to emphasize she was not being a prude. The Hill indiscretion Bruce was decrying was purely a violation of labor law, or something.
Both Bruce and Carlson refuse to be cast as “prudes” who reject public promiscuity. It’s Hill’s conduct in the “work place” that bothers both these Fox News hosts. Oh Buddha!
