Skip to comments.WaPo Owned Slate.com Calls Sarah Palin a C*** in Headline

Washington Post owned Slate.com used a crude misogynist wordplay to call Sarah Palin a c*** in a headline for an article published Tuesday about a supposed secret Sarah Palin Facebook account.
The headline reads: Sarah Palin Uses Alternate Facebook Accunt To Praise Sarah Palin
The article, posted in Slate's "Slatest" section, is based on an article from Wonkette titled, Sarah Palin Has Secret Lou Sarah Facebook Account To Praise Other Sarah Palin Facebook Account, that in a rare show of class for Wonkette does not use the sexist slur in the article.
Two commmenters at Slatest criticized Slate for the slur with one writing, "I've let go of my reflexive typo pointing in the Slatest, but Facebook accunt? on a Sarah Palin's tidbit, come on guys, at least get a basic spellcheck function."
Given Slate's prominence as a respected part of the mainstream media with professional standards to uphold, an innocent typo of this magnitude with this subject is highly unlikely.(For the benefit of Media Matters senior blogger Eric Boehlert, try to imagine Slate "accidently" doing the same to Michelle Obama or Nancy Pelosi. It wouldn't happen.)
During the 2008 presidential campaign, liberal activists paraded in public wearing t-shirts emblazoned in large lettering, "Sarah Palin is a c***" with the c-word fully spelled out.
The Slate article itself does not bear a timestamp, but the comments begin at 5:18 p.m., meaning the article with the offensive headline has been up for nearly four hours as of this writing.
Earlier today, Palin denied having a secret Facebook account, writing on her official Facebook page "On a side note, theres always buzz about fake Sarah Palin Facebook and Twitter accounts. Please know that this is my only authentic Facebook account and SarahPalinUSA is my only authentic Twitter account. Pay no attention to the fake accounts and their fake messages."
To the Washington Post (as a newspaper business): We’ll dance on your grave, and not in the all too distant future, either. Say bye!
Yet if one used the same term to describe any liberal female that same crowd would angrily spew "misogyny!" accusations.
Not the dreaded “see you next Thursday” ?
What has that woman done to ANYONE in her LIFE, that warrants such disgusting vilification? The Communists know that their little experiment in turning the USA into the USSA is FAILING MISERABLY, and they will be taken out to the trash in 2012, they are SCARED WITLESS and it SHOWS!!!
That’s what happens when a second rate newspaper hires a 3rd rate so-called journalist. It’s going to get worse thru the year.
Democrats hate women.
It’s why they adore Islam.
Lock and load - the new civility is over.
Nope, its the dreaded "Adios caballero, see you next Thursday.
What has Sheriff Dupnik said?
Why is this okay?
The people at the Post have no couth. Their CEO’s own mother was a cheap street trollop for example.
Of course Sarah Palin is a cracker, she sure ain’t no n******.
Simple. She scared the shit out of the Washington establishment -- both Rs and Ds. She became popular without their approval or certification -- and especially without their combined oath to official recognized, approved and perfectly legal corruption that makes them all very wealthy.
If they don't control her, and can't control her, they must destroy her because simple honesty can sink all of their boats.
Watch the right be excoriated for mentioning some leftist's actual voting record. Such incivility cannot stand.
A well-known Communist technique is to ridicule a person before destroying them. They target only those they fear may threaten their power. Remember a prominent Communist who referred to “lipstick on a pig”? Lots of laughs from the smarmy puke audience. Bob
The left is to civil like Keith Olbermann is to journalist.
“the tidal wave of filth and carpet chewing abuse the left would heap on her could pave her way to victory”.....I’m with you on that one! The left has effectively inoculated Sarah from their vicious venum.....All they are doing is making her stronger, and she was already plenty strong....Poor fools, all they know how to do is attack, like Mad Dog’s foaming @ the mouth while wildly barking.
If they don’t control her, and can’t control her, they must destroy her because simple honesty can sink all of their boats.
When placed next to a person who is truly good, the bad must blur the definition of good, or attempt to confuse what makes a person good. The result is a skeptical public that believes that no one is really good.
When placed against a person who has a nearly perfect record of service, the slacker must create doubt about that record as they have no such record to put forward. The efforts to distort or bury Sarah Palin’s record will continue unabated. The result is a skeptical public that believes that no one has a nearly perfect record of service.
When placed against a person who is true in heart and faithful to their spouse, family, and community, the unfaithful must destroy the faithful and their family and their community or be seen for who they are. No politician’s family has ever been attacked at the level of the Palin family. The left had no compassion for the people of Alaska when they immobilized the state government with baseless law suits. The result is a skeptical public that believes that no one is faithful and true of heart.
In order to destroy Sarah Palin, the left will also have to destroy the values she believes in and shares with millions of Americans. They have a big task ahead. Can they make Americans abandon the Constitution, the Declaration, and the Judeo-Christian values on which they were based? Will we abandon capitalism in favor of socialism? In order to defeat Sarah Palin, voters will have to be convinced that socialism is better and our founding documents no longer apply. Their only hope is to confuse with lies and false accusations and to follow the Clinton strategy, “It all depends what the definition of “is” is.”
In order to defeat Sarah Palin, the left must make skeptics out of American voters. The good news is that skepticism can be easily overcome when confronted with reality. Gov. Palin is about to start a campaign that will give the left and the media a harsh dose of reality. I can’t wait.
The Left is so sexually and racially insecure that it commonly results in viciousness.
