Open Thread

Thom Hartmann had a little discussion of this on his radio program on Friday, but I'd like to see the discussion on C&L.

Given Rush Limbaugh's callous dismissal of Elizabeth Edwards's announcement that her cancer had recurred; Bill O'Reilly's incredibly patronizing timeout of Lis Wiehl for giving the correct information; Tucker Carlson describing Hillary Clinton as "castrating", Glenn Beck referring to Rosie O'Donnell as a "fat witch", not to mention the Republican platform of removing choice for women and then castigating "Welfare Queens," what on earth could make any woman want to be a Republican? What do the Malkins, Coulters and O'Beirnes get out of being part of a party that has so little respect for women and make subjugating them part of their platform?
