In a follow-up to a post from a few weeks past, the always-nasty Sandra Bernhard has uglied herself right out of a job. According to Lifenews.com, “Comedian Sandra Bernhard has lost her slot as a keynote speaker for a women’s shelter in Massachusetts after attacking vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin on abortion. In a monologue criticizing the Alaska governor, Bernhard made crude comments about rape that cost her the gig.” A spokesperson for the the Boston-based Rosie’s Place said, “Rosie’s Place provides a safe haven for poor and homeless women, some of whom have experienced violence in their lives. Therefore, we do not believe that violence against women is a joking matter and will not be including Ms. Bernhard in our upcoming fundraising event.” Amen to common sense and decency prevailing in Boston!
Can you imagine how decidedly non-progressives progressives would howl with self-righteous outrage were a comedian to joke about the brutal rape of, say, Michelle Obama or Jill Biden? Where are they now? Their silence is deafening.
