Gang Rape!? Never a good idea Ms. Bernhard....
More shooting fish in a barrel I'm afraid. First Lindsey Lohan makes stupid political remarks now Sandra Bernhard. For those who don't know who Sandra Bernhard is, she is a hideous stand up comedian of sorts. She touts herself as a rude crude but "honest" left wing commentator on social issues. Like Lohan she is not a big fan of Gov. Sarah Palin. How do I know this?
Well, in a stand up routine Sandra made the most off color statement I have heard in a while. This even beats the US Representative that called Barack Obama Jesus for "stupid remark by a leftie". They just keep getting better it seems. In speaking of a campaign trip that Palin was going to be making to New York state, Barnhard made the statement that she (Palin) would be gang-raped by Bernhard's "big black brothers" if she visited Manhattan.
Not only was this a slam on black people, excuse me, African American's (Black is a derogatory term, I forgot) as if the only thing they are capable of is gang raping someone, but it could be considered a viable threat against a vice presidential candidate. Not to mention a blatant attempt at saving a drowning career by a washed up, never funny, comic. Totally bad taste for sure.
This article had a good point that I hope becomes common knowledge for all who read this blog if it isn't so already. The statement reads, "Celebrities, unparalleled in mass conformity, often feel inclined to slither toward a fashionable and poorly thought-out notion of leftist or democratic sensibilities. And they are incapable of realizing that their opinions mean nothing and may, in fact, dissuade certain voters (witness Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama's swatting off his fervid admirers Scarlett Johansson and, more recently, Lindsay Lohan as potential harm-bringers)."
We have already talked about Lindsey, but I think her comments are completely harmless towards the McCain-Palin campaign in comparisson. This one on the other hand is just down right disgusting. I don't care what you think of someone's campaign you should, if you are human being, never want to see rape in any form happen to anyone. Way to go Obama, you have roped another winner to your cause!
