This week has provided an interesting example of how, in the left’s mind, the famed #WarOnWomen only pertains to women who are on the left or with whom they have sympathy.
Earlier in the week, the infamous Palin family brawl that eventually saw 24 year old Bristol Palin knocked down, was a news item. This was a shameful incident by any standards. But what was more shameful was the way it was treated by the left.
For instance, sexual deviant and Palin family gynecological expert, Andrew Sullivan, after extensively quoting the most obscene language in the police report had this to say:

Costello then played the audio of Palin, which was censored a bit for profanity.
Costello has since apologized but the takeaway is that Costello would not have laughed at Ray Rice using his wife as a pinata after she did much more to provoke Rice than anything Palin did to provoke her assailant:
CNN’s Carol Costello did little to hide her feelings about the comments made by Fox & Friends’ hosts Brian Kilmeade and Steve Doocy about the Ray Rice domestic abuse scandal Tuesday morning. After playing a clip of the “joke,” in which Kilmeade said, “The message is: take the stairs,” Costello said she wanted to “throw up” after hearing it.
In fact, she wrote an op-ed about her own experience with domestic violence. But Bristol Palin didn’t count because …read more
