Everyone knows that comedy has no bounds — just ask Sarah Silverman — but what happens when a comedienne lets her anger get the best of her and says things that are the most controversial we’ve possibly heard this election season?
In her updated comedy show, “Without You I Am Nothing,” currently playing in Washington DC, actress and comic Sandra Bernhard lets her Republican frustration out:
“Now you got Uncle Women, like Sarah Palin, who jumps on the s–t and points her fingers at other women. Turncoat b—h! Don’t you f–kin’ reference Old Testament, bitch! You stay with your new Goyish crappy shiksa funky bulls–t! Don’t you touch my Old Testament, you b—h! Because we have left it open for interpre-ta-tion! It is no longer taken literally! You whore in your f–kin’ cheap New Vision cheap-ass plastic glasses and your [sneering voice] hair up. A Tina Fey-Megan Mullally brokedown bulls–t moment.”
No doubt there will be people all over the media who will be freaking out about Bernhard’s anti-Palin speech (which includes a playful threat that the Republican VP might get “gang-raped” in NYC), but we at CC want to hear what you think:
Woman to Woman, should Bernhard be going after Palin’s femininity? Words like “bitch,” “Uncle Woman,” threats of rape…all these things are ways to attack a woman with a force that a man will never feel.
Does it make you angry that Bernhard is saying these things? Or she is completely in the right to say whatever she wants?
