To Limbaugh, women are just like animals. Don't take my word for it. Take his. Five months ago, he compared his cat to a girlfriend: "She gets loved. She gets adoration. She gets petted. She gets fed. And she doesn't have to do anything for it, which is why I say this cat's taught me more about women than anything my whole life."
That's the kind of frat-boy thinking that ends with a bunch of drunken idiots in a barn.
So, yes, we are surprised to hear Saletan hasn't called PETA et al to raid Limbaugh's house and rescue the poor cat from the bestial Limbaugh. I mean, talk about steeping low to vilify and mischaracterize a political opponent. And I can't wait to hear Saletan's protest on how horrible pornography is, because it does display all these attitudes he described. Maybe when hell, freezes over, that is.
If there is anything very bestial in all of this, it is surely Saletan's writing.
p.s. Captain's Quarters has a post worth reading as well.
