Huckabee’s vapors over women cussing tell you everything you need to know about conservatives

Those Fox ladies and their dirty mouths got me in my manfeels!

Shockingly, GOP Presidential candidate Mike Huckable continues to be a gross, embarrassing buffoon. In his latest bid for attention, he expressed his shock(!) over those New York City hoydens he worked with at Fox and their unladylike profanity. Of course such a blatant invitation to mockery has earned Huck many scathing responses in the liberal blogosphere but, honestly, my favorite reaction to it is this hilariously sincere one by the right wing site World Net Daily. It reads like a breathless Dateline exposé.

Huckabee complains of ‘trashy’ women at Fox News
‘Throw the F-bomb or use gratuitous profanity in a professional setting’

The women of Fox News might be very fair in the attractive sense, but their language is actually very foul, according to Mike Huckabee, the former Arkansas governor who stepped down from the popular cable channel recently to consider a run for the White House.

While promoting his book, “God, Guns, Grits, and Gravy,” Huckabee told Des Moines radio host Jan Mickelson last Friday he personally experienced severe culture shock listening to “trashy” female women spew frequent obscenities.

“Six and a half years of traveling to New York every week to work – I mean it’s one thing to go as a guest, a visitor, a tourist – if you go to work and you’re in that, sort of … hotbed of the New York culture for a while, for someone like me, I thought, ‘Man, this is a different planet!’ And I came more and more to realize that the cultural divide is significant.”

Huckabee then gave Mickelson a specific example about working in the Big Apple.

“It’s one those things where in a business meeting that you might have in the South, or in the Midwest there in Iowa, you would not have people who would just throw the F-bomb and use gratuitous profanity in a professional setting,” Huckabee explained.

“In New York, not only do the men do it, but the women do it,” he said. “My gosh, this is worse than locker-room talk.”

And in the comments section are several gems, including this one from a poor chap called jldewitt:

This is par for course of a society that is blind to sin and has fallen into a Godless moral sewer. At least MH is a man who has a sense of honor and integrity unlike those who would give this type of behavior, especially for a women, a free pass just because they are good looking or because it is a norm in the present day.

I don’t know what he and Huck are going to do when they learn that women also belch and fart.

Huckabee’s theatrics since the release of his book and announcement of his Presidential candidacy reveal much about the true motives of conservatives where women are concerned. For all their bleating about how much they love and care about women (the excuse given for every single one of those bullshit TRAP laws) it often doesn’t take much to set off the misogynistic rage that seethes barely below the surface toward women who can’t or won’t conform to their exacting standards of proper femininity. Right wingers divide women* into two groups:

1) Saintly virgins/wives/mothers
2) Filthy whores

Theoretically, men are also supposed to save themselves for marriage wherein they will only have procreative sex and refrain from “vulgar” behavior like swearing but men are not defined by adherence to those things like women are in the conservative worldview. Indeed, men who do adhere, like Huckabee who very pointedly doesn’t swear in public, are exceedingly proud of themselves for it**. Thus, it’s worse for women to swear and it makes us “trashy” – a word that has never been applied to, say, the famously potty-mouthed Rahm Emanuel.

Huck is obviously not going to win the GOP nomination but I do want him to stay in the race for as long as he can, both for the lulz and for him to keep revealing how conservatives are still the same uptight, woman-hating prigs they’ve always been, recent “outreach” efforts notwithstanding.

*Yes, of course there are right wing women too and they feel the same way. About other women, that is. Hence the ability of female Fox news employees to act outraged over indecent women bringing down society on the air while swearing like sailors behind the scenes.

**Which just goes to show how right wingers know they don’t really expect men to follow the same rules they put on women.
