Margery Eagan writes some "Oh, mercy, I'm coming down with the vapors!" column about would-be Republican First Ladies showing off their decolletage, and suddenly she's the focus of blinding, white hot fury by Southern Republicans who accuse her of being another Goddamn Yankee Liberal (wait, what? How did I miss the memo that we're all opposed to plunging necklines now?).
The Charleston Daily Mail thunders:
The ever-liberal Eagan wants "Cindy McCain to button up."
That this prudish call comes from a liberal does not surprise me. Over the years "progressives" have wanted us to prohibit the sale of alcohol and to ban smoking and to cover up. ...
OK, I suppose the newspaper of record in a town that still refers to the "War of Northern Aggression" would consider somebody like Eagan to the left of Leon Trotsky (and it's not like she called Fred Thompson's wife a stripper) but when did modesty and prudery become Official Liberal Positions? Does this mean we've ceded our oversight of America's moral turpitude (through our hand on the jugular of popular culture) to Sam Brownback? Nobody in the cabal ever tells me anything anymore!
