Comedian on 'Today' Show Trashes Sarah Palin: She's 'Very Much Like Herpes'
Newsbusters.org ^ | 6-9-09 | Scott Whitlock

Posted on 06/09/2009 12:02:16 PM PDT by Justaham

VH1 comedian Chuck Nice appeared on Tuesday's "Today" show and compared Alaska Governor Sarah Palin to the sexually transmitted disease herpes. He mocked, "But, Sarah Palin to the GOP, this is what I've got to say, she is very much like herpes, she's not going away."

The "Best Week Ever" host amazingly preceded his comments by instructing the show's hosts and his fellow guests, who were there to discuss news events in the 10am hour of the show, "...Please don't take it the way it sounds." Amazingly, no one on the program really challenged Nice on his ugly remark. NBC News chief legal analyst Dan Abrams mildly observed, "That's the advantage of being Chuck Nice. You can say that and there's no repercussions." Nia-Malika Henderson, the White House reporter for Politico, said nothing.

Defiant, Nice continued, "Everybody's laughing. I don't care. The band is cracking up." Anchors Hoda Kotb and Kathy Lee Gifford quickly moved onto other topics. Would such a comment about Barack Obama or Hillary Clinton have gone unquestioned on "Today?"

Reminds me for some reason of the musical Cabaret - kind of funny in a 1930’s Berlin sort of way.

Please, as if.

The Today show was the incubator for the "newstainment " standard that dominates broadcast, and most print, journalism today. There's no such thing as professional, unbiased reporter, anywhere by anyone. They all have agendas and that agenda is almost exclusively leftist.

No. He can get away with it because he is a) liberal, b) black.

AMAZINGLY? Yeah right. What would be amazing is if someone said the same about Obama and lasted more than an hour at their job.

This "media" is shameful.

What is Sarah’s Husbands Name ?
In Texas, aggravated Assault is a misdemeanor and cost you about $200.00 to punch out someone who insulted your wife.
Sarah’s Husband needs to put a stop to this.....and I would put money on the Alaskan.

I'd say AIDS would be a better analogy for Obortion.

Cancer is deadly, but it isn't highly contagious and spread through wanton behaviors like AIDS.

In this case, it would be a bad bargain. $200 for the court fine plus $200,000+ for treating whatever blood-borne pathogens Todd might catch from the idiot as a result of “putting a stop to this.”

Whatever that idiot is infected with it is probably too strong for bandages and penicillin to fix.

Far, far better for Todd to let the idiot run his mouth. Idiots have a way of falling victim to self-inflicted injuries, thus not requiring good people to bark their knuckles on them.

Do you see one link to all of these stories trashing Palin. It is the Left Wing media and it is coming at the same time.

The Dems and the Left see all the popularity Palin is garnering against Obama and she is making a lot of progress. The DNC had talking points going out on trashing Palin and the left wing nuts are complying.

They are scared to death of Palin because she is the only person who is the only Republican elected official who is standing up against Obama.

She is not scared and it is leaving a dent on Obama and the Dems. Continue to pray for Sarah Palin.

Works better on TV where the good guys win. More than 20 years ago now, when I was young and stupid a much larger middle aged man (my age now) socked me good when I called his wife a fat cow. Less than a minute later he was on the ground begging me, in front of his wife no less, to stop hitting him. As it resolved, he could have pressed charges against me for fighting words, but it wouldn't have been a good deal for him as he'd have had to suck up the greater charge of assault.

The lesson here is to think twice about punching someone over something as petty as an insult, even if you have 8 inches and 60 pounds on them. You never know who you're hitting, and you could easily pick the guy who's spent his whole life training for nothing else.

I'll never make that mistake. I let insults roll off my back, and if it looks like I'm going to be assaulted I draw my weapon. No macho posturing involved.

Sage advice. Bears repeating and immortalizing, in bold italic:

Between this guy and David Letterman last night, I must conclude that the libs are terrified of Sarah Palin.

Sarah is a white christian republican.

So therefore anyone can say anything about her they want without any consequences.

If she were a dem or had any faith other than christian or had any other ethnic background other than white.... anyone would be branded a racist hatemonger if they so much as made the slightest negative comment.
