No More Miss Nice Guy

I guess women really can be as vile and anti-woman as the next guy.

First you have Bernhardt threatening Palin with the spectre of gang rape by black men, should she ever make the mistake of going to Manhattan. Now I don't know if that was just a racist thing, or if that part was unintentional. The rest of her rant is pretty solidly just hissing about how Sarah Palin is an "uncle woman bitch whore" and vicious remarks about her appearance, in detail. I'm trying to picture a scathing commentary on Obama that includes a threat that if he ever shows up in Birmingham he'd be lynched - and coming up short.

Then you have Margaret Cho telling us Palin is completely evil, but she'd like to hate-"fuck" her. She describes it graphically.

"But even though I would never, ever vote for Palin, I am kind of obsessed with fucking her. She is sexy and hot in a MILF/Cougar way. Like you could have that real mature, straight to the point, adult, over forty, gonna cum multiple times with a big, oversize t-shirt on and nothing else and “I don’t care what I look like cuz I am gonna bust nuts in your curl” kind of fucking with her. I want to steam up those glasses and show her what a pitbull with lipstick really needs – doggy style!

Seriously – I wanna eat her Alaskan pussy from behind. Like an Eskimo. What?! I’m just trying to keep warm!

Although you know that thing is frozen and my tongue would probably stick."

Are you still with me? I know that was really off-putting. If you have the gumption, read the next entry on how she's really "a Christian, you fucking fucks." LOL God told her she could use his name in vain, so it's ok.

They can get a pass because they're women and they're gay and they're leftist, therefore any misogyny they post is just incidental, and probably the result of what bad men and the patriarchy did to them. Yeah, no. No pass here. They ought to both be horsewhipped in town square. But then I'm mean that way.

Thank goodness we have the gaffe king (Biden) to lighten the mood from these vicious kinds of violent sexual images being directed at a female candidate who just might be on the way to the White House.

Just the past day or so Biden's gaffed on coal, saying the Obama/Biden ticket doesn't support any more coal in the US (when Obama promised something like $200 million for clean coal), gaffed on the depression, claiming Roosevelt was president in 1929 (Hoover was) and that he then went on television (there was no television) to give the people confidence (oops), gaffed on guns and accidentally threatened his own running mate ("Barack Obama ain't taking my shotguns, so don't buy that malarkey. If he tries to fool with my Beretta, he's got a problem.") and attacked the Obama campaign's own ad that railed on McCain for not being a net junkie (below.) It turns out he can't use a keyboard due to old war injuries.

"BIDEN: I thought that was terrible. (rimshot)

COURIC: Why did you do it, then?

BIDEN: I didn't know we did it, and if I had anything to do with it, we'd have never done it, and I don't think Barack -- you know, I mean I just think that was, uh --

COURIC: Did Barack Obama approve that ad? He said he did, right?)

BIDEN: Yeah, the answer is -- I -- I don't think anything's intentional about that. (rimshot) They were trying to make another point."

He caught himself there - he was trying to say Obama didn't know anything about it, then realized it was almost as bad as telling a man in a wheelchair to stand up so everyone could see him, and got a tad pwned.)

The funniest bit is that he said he was way on his guard because Repubs were going to jump on every little boo-boo. That's Biden being super-duper CAREFUL. Which makes it funnier.

But at least it breaks up the vicious smear campaigns and gives you a chance to laugh, right? Well, it makes me laugh. I don't know about you.)

I totally do not understand why women feel the need to add to the misogyny that men spew at us all the time. If women have a problem with Palin, that's fine. Attack her because she's a liar, unethical, and anti-woman, but don't use sexist language to do it. When a supposed feminist uses misogyny to attack another woman, all it does is make things harder for every other woman out there, not just the one she's attacking. And if she's using misogyny to attack a woman, she's not a fucking feminist and she's definitely not on my side or trying to advance anything for other women.
I must totally be losing my sense of humor, because I'll tell ya what, all those damned joke emails that are getting forwarded to me by relatives, I'm not finding them funny anymore. If it's racist, it's not funny; if it puts down women, it's not funny; if it puts down men, it's not funny; if it's homophobic/fatphobic/any-phobic, it's not funny, not anymore.

I like black humor, but you're right; I didn't see anything funny or humorous in Bernhardt's rant at all (the audience wasn't laughing and neither was she), or Cho's weak joking after her scenario. I'd be surprised that no one picked up on these vicious tirades, but I guess it's not really very surprising. In fact Roseanne Barr (tied with Streisand for most insane person on the entire internet) who fancies herself a feminist of sorts, thought both were hilariously funny. Other mediums have simply ignored them as if they didn't happen at all. Go figure.

I'm still unclear where Palin is lying about anything of import; I've heard the charge but never with credible evidence. Even the whole commissioner thing has been pretty much settled with internal documents showing rank insubordination. But maybe there's something I missed. :)
