Have you noticed how the Establishment invents a lot of special rules that only seem to apply to conservatives? Have you noticed how these rules always involve preventing conservatives from winning? And have you noticed how these rules never, ever seem to apply to our enemies?

Take the imbroglio over Wendy Davis, the pride of Harvard Law School and the scourge of fetuses everywhere. Turns out her story of pulling herself up by her stiletto straps was a bit more complicated than it initially appeared. And by “a bit more complicated,” I mean it appears to be a miasma of distortions, omissions and outright deception.

That is, if the left wing mainstream journalist who wrote it is accurate. I mean, we can’t know for certain if the older, established husband she married was telling the truth when he said she dumped him – and her kids – the day after he finished paying for that Harvard Law School education we keep hearing about, nor can we know if his initial legal claim of adultery was accurate.

Apparently now it’s unfair to mention the possibility that Wendy Davis, who expects the citizens of the Lone Star State to trust in her character enough to elect her governor, might be a gold-digging user who tosses aside those closest to her when they become inconvenient to her personal agenda. That would seem important information to know about someone I was being asked to rely upon to represent my interests.

But remember, “sexism” is holding a liberal woman to the same standards of integrity as a man. Think of the MSNBC coverage if Sarah Palin – who was raked over the coals for keeping her child – was accused of a tenth of Wendy’s perfidy. They’d probably even preempt Lock-Up.

So we conservatives are supposed to be silent about the faux heroine in tennis shoes who valiantly fought against the peril of babies being born, about the women whose face launched a thousand Manhattan fundraisers, about the newest feminist icon and symbol of just what a woman can do when her soon-to-be ex is writing the checks.

The rules say we must to be silent, that talking about her is somehow not understanding women’s stories. Gosh, the last thing we’d want to do is not understand a woman’s story, whatever that means. We better just sit, quiet and obedient. We’d better obey the Establishment’s rules.

Their rules. The rules that keep them in power. The rules that didn’t apply when the NYT ran a barely sourced hit piece on John McCain’s alleged affair during his campaign. Those rules.
