Hustler Photoshops S.E. Cupp Performing a Sex Act

Eh.

If you're subscribing to Hustler's porn operation-- and for God's sakes, even among my debased readership, I can't imagine you are; it was always awful -- I would suggest it's time to stop.

If you want alternatives, I can suggest some. And by some I mean "fifty."

Allah wonders if it's possible that this crosses the defamation line, since the Supreme Court decision which found that Hustler did not defame Jerry Falwell relied upon the notion that no one could mistake it for real.

Could people mistake this for real? I think some could.

What he doesn't wonder about is whether or not the mainstream media will advocate on behalf of S.E. Cupp's dignity, as they were so eager to do with Sandra Fluke.

No one wonders that.

They won't.

Period.

Let me give my own personal vow to SE Cupp: I'll never look at this hoax photoshop. So no, personally, I will never have this image in my head.

I hope/trust that almost everyone will also take this vow (unless they have to look at it, for example, if they're a lawyer suing Flynt).

So at least we can reassure S.E. Cupp that very few people she's ever likely to meet, or read her, or follow her column will know of it.

Absurd thuggery.

The left needs to understand something. This isn't a threat. This is common sense.

Success breeds imitation.

Some on the left may be rather pleased about this, or about Brett Kimberlin's serial harassment of critics exercising their free speech rights.

They might be pleased... for now.

But if the right is as thuggish and crazy and evil as the left suggests -- do they really think that this sort of behavior, if permitted to prosper, will not be imitated and deployed against the left?

Of course it will be. Success breeds imitators.

Now, I think this crap is disgusting, no matter who it's directed against.

But I gotta tell you -- if the left is just going to snigger and giggle at this ruthless behavior, I'm going to be inclined to do the exact same thing when some deranged thug on the right begins to take things personal against the left.

On the other hand, if the left stands for basic decency and humanity, I personally would go just as hard against a right-wing monster as against a left-wing one.

You know, there are not just two parties, liberal and conservative. There are at least two more parties that intersect with those-- the party of the decent, and the party of the indecent.

The party of the honorable, and the party of the repulsive.

I claim allegiance to the party of the decent and honorable over any and all other allegiances.

It would be nice to have reassurance that there are still those on the left who do likewise.
