HAWKINS: "Every last insult ever hurled at someone like Sandra Fluke probably wouldn't amount to what women like Sarah Palin, Michele Bachmann, Michelle Malkin, and Ann Coulter put up with on any given week with the full support of the same liberals who run off at the mouth about a 'war on women.'" Of course it would never occur to Mr. Hawkins that liberal criticism of those individuals might have less to do with their gender and more to do with their status as high-profile reactionary loons.

Calling them a name is not the same as demonstrating reasonably why they should not be taken seriously.

"their status as high-profile reactionary loons."

And who gives them status? The same mindless progs who don't have a word of criticism about Nancy Pelosi, Diane Feinstein, Hillary Clinton, ad nauseum.

Just admit it Hooverville, you progs could care less about honest dicussion.

Then why are the attacks personal in nature? Why do the lefties hurl personal attacks and savage insults instead of attacking the policies? It is because ignorant reactionary leftists are not capable of arguing with facts.

Exactly! They do not have any facts, much less reasonable arguments.

Were there some people who made stupid and sexist attacks against Sarah Palin? Sure. The people who did so were wrong and should be rightfully condemned.

But you can't pretend that the knock on Sarah Palin was almost entirely substantive: i.e. she was woefully underqualified for the job of VP, and lacked even basic policy knowledge. That's not the kind of thing you hear lefties saying about Kay Bailey Hutchinson or Olympia Snowe, simply because both of these women are everything Sarah Palin is not: smart, serious, and accomplished.

Liberalism offers up a utopian vision of the world and then invites its practitioners to feel good about themselves for embracing it. Not only does this beautiful fantasy world never come to pass, liberalism fails to address the root causes of the problems it sets out to solve while creating whole new disasters in the process. In other words, it's a never ending circle. There's a problem, liberalism is offered up as the solution, it doesn't work and creates more problems, for which liberalism is offered up as the solution, etc., etc., etc. until you're starving, bankrupt, or your society...
