Shock: NeverTrumpers Having Conniptions Because of Trump Making Jokes About Grabbing Women By the Mishes For Some Reason Don't Want Kellyanne Conway to Reveal Congressmen Who Maybe Really Did Grab Women By the Mishes

Kellyanne Conway said that many Congressmen have forced tongues down throats and touched women inappropriately, including some of the ones who are falling on to their fainting couches over Trump joking about such things.

For some reason, those who are the most Concerned about Trump's jokes are reacting with horror that Kellyanne Conway might reveal actual bad actions by GOPers they (presumably) support.

Not sure if I understand your reasoning here, boys, except that you are being #ConsistentPrincipledGOPEstablishmentHacks by excusing in your GOPe favorites that which you condemn in Trump when he merely jokes about it.

By the way, over the weekend, another joke I was telling -- playing on the fainting-couch prudes' of the GOP being shocked that some men actually find women attractive and sometimes comment on that -- was observing women and remarking, "Wow, she is really attractive. You know what I'd like to do to her? Why, I'd like to take her to church and/or the library."

But whatever. The Prudes, Moral Scolds, and Humorless Hacks have now decided that thinking a woman is hot and saying so is a disqualification from the presidency.

From Jake Tapper when he was at Salon: the #ConsistentConservatives don't seem very consistent about this new moral imperative:

Ten years ago, at the 1988 Republican Convention, Hartford Courant associate editor David Fink struck up a conversation with George W. "When you’re not talking politics," Fink asked the vice president’s son, "what do you and [your father] talk about?"

"Pussy," George W. replied.

Now I always took that as an impertinent, taking-the-piss answer.*

I assume the #ConsistentConservatives so took it as well, back then, when it was a candidate they supported.

But now we can't say the p-word, because talking about a woman's Naughty Parts makes you a Dirty Bird.

So I have to ask:

What's changed, #ConsistentConservatives?

* I assumed it was a taking-the-piss joke at the time, and I've become more convinced of that since: every depiction of W. I've read suggested that he looked up to his old man's probity and straightness with a level of veneration approaching the Ancestor Spirit Worship of Japanese Buddhism.

Still, the Strange New Social Justice Warrior Tradition of the Right now says that you can't even joke about such things, because, somehow, "this hurts women" by "promoting rape culture" or who the fuck knows what.
