Why the left beats us every time

While it may have been stupid for Limbaugh to have called Sandra Fluke a “slut,” why is it still acceptable for the left—and reportedly Obama—to call members of the Tea Party “tea-baggers,” which is an extremely vulgar sexual term?LA replies:
It’s not only Obama who, as we now learn, reportedly used that term, but numerous “respectable” news media personages, including Anderson Cooper. When they did that, there should have been an earthshaking uproar by conservatives that didn’t stop until these august members of the media abjectly apologized and undertook never to use the term again. But that didn’t happen. Having surrendered on that issue, it’s a little late now for conservatives to be bringing it up. This is not a matter of abstract justice. This is a matter of making a fuss. Liberals made a huge fuss about Limbaugh, and got him to apologize. Conservaties did not make a huge fuss about “teabaggers,” and got no one to apologize.
