Sandra Fluke Engaged! ‘To a Man?’ Asks Fox News Analyst Monica Crowley

74787405 Sandra Fluke Engaged! To a Man? Asks Fox News Analyst Monica Crowley

Crowley, right, with Michael Musto.

Contraceptive rights crush object Sandra Fluke is engaged, The Daily Beast reported late last night.

“To a man?” Ph.D.-holding Fox News political analyst Monica Crowley quipped on Twitter today.

After being called “homophobic” and “a terrible person,” Ms. Crowley followed up: “I love exposing the Left’s total lack of a sense of humor.”

But when other tweeters pointed out that insinuating someone is gay is no longer considered the epitome of wit, she backpedaled.

“‘Insinuating’ nothing. Straightforward question. No answer yet.”

As virtually all news organizations that reported on the engagement specified, Ms. Fluke’s fiance is indeed a male. His name is Adam Mutterperl, he’s a Los Angeles writer/producer/director, and he’s been dating Ms. Fluke for more than eight years. Last month, many conservative commentators, including Fox’s Bill O’Reilly, reported that Mr. Mutterperl’s father is a major supporter of the Democratic Party.

“[W]e’re just excited that our friends and family were kind enough to pretend to be surprised at our engagement,” Ms. Fluke and Mr. Mutterperl told The Daily Beast. “We’re really looking forward to spending the next eight years planning our wedding.”

STAR OF DAVID OR 'PLAIN STAR'?   If you thought "CP Time" was impolitic, on July 2 Donald Trump posted a picture on Twitter of a Star of David on top of a pile of cash next to Hillary Clinton's face. You'd think after the aforementioned crime stats incident (or after engaging a user called "@WhiteGenocideTM," or blasting out a quote from Benito Mussolini, or...) Trump would have learned to wait a full 15 seconds before hitting the "Tweet" button. But not only was the gaffe itself bad, the attempts at damage control made the BP oil spill response look a virtuoso performance.  About two hours after the image went up on Trump's account, somebody took it down and replaced it with a similar picture that swapped the hexagram with a circle (bearing the same legend "Most Corrupt Candidate Ever!"!). Believe it or not, it actually got worse from there. As reports arose that the first image had originated on a white supremacist message board, Trump insisted that the shape was a "sheriff's star," or "plain star," not a Star of David. And he continued to sulk about the coverage online and in public for days afterward, even when the media was clearly ready to move on. This refusal to just let some bad press go would haunt him later on.
