This has been bothering me for a while now

It would have probably gotten more attention if it were photos of Favreau grabbing the crotch and licking the face of an Obama cardboard cutout … ?

It would have gotten an equal amount of attention and the same lack of outrage.

But in the case of a Republican speech writer ... hmmmm ... feminist groups would probably call for his resignation, and Democrats who seek out the feminist vote would probably have echoed that.

I don't know for sure of course, but it seems to me that the media usually follows the lead of the offended party in these things. After Clinton accepted the apology, the fuss kinda died down. I suspect (but again, who knows) that if a GOP speechwriter was photographed similarly mauling a cardboard Sarah Palin, and Palin accepted the guy's apology, even the leftier media would have let it go.

Well, I guess we differ in opinion here.

I think I agree with Super Freak on this one. I think if it were a GOP speechwriter and a cardboard Sarah Palin we would have seen it on the news, on the Daily Show and Colbert Report, on every late night talk show, etc - and all that even after the GOP fired the writer. But obviously this is conjecture and we'll never know for sure.

Hey--how're the slopes?
