MSNBC's Chris Matthews, who is world renowned for having
Obama-induced tingles running up his legs yesterday aired as an "upper"
and "comedy" an alleged "satire" video, which was a sexist and
misogynist attack on Governor Palin and her family, Real Clear Politics (RCP) reported. The "Funny or Die" video contained in the RCP article is a sanitized
version. The video casts Gov. Palin as a dim-witted, narcissistic bimbo
who undergoes a 30-day-long mental breakdown as Washington Post
columnist Dana Milbank's "Ignore Sarah Palin Month" goes into full
effect. The sanitized video includes footage of the caricature giving an
interview to an empty chair on Day 9 stating that Trig is not her
child. The video culminates with the caricature not knowing that
February only has 28 days. In reality, "Ignore Sarah Palin Month" did not even last one day, as reported by Adrienne Ross.
Following is a summary of what was in the un-cut video:
- Day 5: A panicked "Palin" offering to talk to Katie Couric about porn
- Day 6: "Palin" saying, "Levi Johnston, I [had sex with] him."
- Days 12 and Day 15: "Palin" with what appears to be a speared baby talking about a "blood libel"
- Day 19: Asking Rush Limbaugh for painkillers and claiming she "can see Russia from her vagina"
- Day 25: Licking on a deer antler - suggestive of oral sex.
Matthews - who RCP wrote has a long misogynistic history with women
from both the left and right - lauded the video's creators as "comedic
Call to Action
We are urging all supporters of Gov. Palin to stand up against this misogynist attack. Recall the success in 2009, when four advertisers pulled out of David Letterman's show in the wake of a scheduled rally to have him fired over "jokes" he made about Gov. Palin and her daughter Willow.
