Double Standard? No, he's just a bitch

In a July 6 column in the LA Times, Rosa Brooks questioned the widespread embracing of the Queen of Iraq for her martyrdom in the name of a free press. In response to that, Tucker Carlson referred to Ms. Brooks as "catty." Ms. Brooks responded in a July 13 column by wondering if Carlson was employing a double standard, whether he would have referred to a male columnist at catty (don't you love the way folks like Carlson and Brooks make use of such valuable media real estate?). Since the adjective that best describes Carlson is "bitchy" ("prissy" comes in second) and he is unquestionably a punk-ass bitch, I think it's fair to say that he wasn't being sexist.
