Governor Sarah Palin, the Republican Vice-Presidential candidate, would be “gang raped by my big black brothers” if she enters Manhattan, says caring, compassionate Lefty Sandra Bernhard in a several-minutes-long diatribe against “the turncoat bitch” in her new one-woman “comedy” show.
Well done, Sandra. You’ve just demonstrated that you still believe in the old racist stereotype of black men as violently sexualised gang-raping savages and you’ve just shown your contempt for powerful, capable modern women. You will have offended a lot of women, who don’t believe that threatening a female politician with whom you don’t agree with being gang-raped (and by blacks, specifically? Is that supposed to make it worse or something?) is particularly kosher and just about anyone else out here who has even an ounce of decency. “Riffing” on the fantasy of gang rape (by blacks! oooh-waaah) of our Star Ordinary is going to boomerang on you and your “progressive cause” just as all of the other ham-fisted attempts to bring her down have.
On the other hand, when deranged Lefties and Progressives keep outing themselves as racist, woman-hating, violent unreasoning morons, it can’t but help the Republican cause. Keep it up, Sandra. Keep it up, Heather. Keep showing us what lies behind the myth of the caring, compassionate, tolerant, liberal progressive — for most Ordinary Joes out here who had no idea, it’s like watching a slo-mo car crash, and it’s most edifying. Or it’s like Sarah Palin really did make their heads explode and now we get to see all the maggots inside. (caution: picture not breakfast, lunch or dinner safe)
In any case, come what may in November, the behaviour of the Ugly Left won’t be quickly forgotten – or forgiven.

UPDATE: The rant (“comedy sketch,” if you consider someone standing on a stage haranguing people “comedy” ) also includes some bizarre religious demands: “Don’t you f**king reference Old Testament, bitch! You stay with your new goyish crappy shiksa funky bullshit! Don’t you touch my Old Testament, you bitch!” Ho-kaaaaay… Gateway Pundit has still more. Video below (language warning)
UPDATE 2: S.E. Cupp in the New York Daily News –
I have a message for the self-styled guardians of womanhood who have decided that Sarah Palin is public enemy No. 1 – please stop talking. You’re embarrassing yourselves and women all over the country.
You are making otherwise thoughtful, careful, intelligent, tolerant and modern American women of every political bent look and sound ridiculous. As a woman myself, I’m begging you to stop. Put the pen down, close out the blog, push the E! microphone away. Your trash-talking is disturbing and humiliating. In fact, it’s setting back the true cause of feminism – the advancement of women – far more than your imagined nemesis.
Stop using and abusing Palin to pump up your own overweening egos. You are not the next Sojourner Truth, and Palin is not your next punch line. She’s a mother, a governor, a wife and, yes, a real woman, whether you like it or not.
