The elite national media that is trying to destroy Rush Limbaugh over his calling liberal activist Sandra Fluke a 'slut' and 'prostitute' is set to host a comic who attacked Sarah Palin (and her son Trig) in vile terms.
The Radio and Television Correspondents Association (RTCA)announced in December that its 68th Annual Radio & TV Congressional Correspondents' Dinner to be held June 8, 2012, at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington, D.C. will be headlined by comic Louis C.K.
As reported by Brent Bozell, Louis C.K. repeatedly attacked former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin with crude language about her femininity. (Profanity edited):
A couple of years ago, comedian Louis CK joked on the Opie and Anthony radio show about Palin coming to the Republican convention holding a baby that just came out of her ****ing, disgusting ****, her ****ing retard-making ****. I hate her more than anybody, he said.
On Twitter, this comedian attacked Palin in 2011 as a ****ing ****off ****-face jazzy wondergirl who has a family of Chinese poor people living in her ****.
Guess which event this same fellow is headlining in June? -- The Radio and Television Correspondents Dinner.
Were very excited about having Louis C.K. at the dinner, said Jay McMichael of CNN, who chairs the Radio and Television Correspondents Associationss executive committee. This is an evening youll want to experience. Were shaking things up, showcasing the unexpected, and delivering lots of laughs.
Louis C.K. reportedly apologized, but apparently half-heartedly according to an account in Mediaite about a July 2011 GQ interview. (Profanity edited):
"We sat there suspended for a moment in earnestness, looking at each other over the table like, Life, huh? Its just a bunch of relentless punches to the junk. And then he added: All that other ****, though, saying Palin had a Chinese family in her **** and whatever, I dont regret that. Its comedy. I have said many indefensible things onstage. Its ****ing comedy. Plus, I do believe if she got elected, shed really Hitler up the place.
By tradition, the President or Vice President of the United States attends the dinner, though not always. Barack Obama spoke at the 2009 Radio & TV Congressional Correspondents' Dinner. Vice President Joe Biden spoke at the 2010 dinner.
There is no indication yet whether either will attend this year's dinner.
The RTCA is promoting the dinner on Facebook.

If I was Rush (and I hope you’re reading this, Rush), I would dedicate an entire program to exactly this kind of hypocrisy. I’d hang every leftie out to dry that ever uttered anything crude or demeaning (tons of that kind of material everyday). Three solid hours of leftist vulgarity and obscenity with minor commentary. I think that kind of counter-attack would go a long ways to shutting them up. Heck, forgo music bumpers until the election and run soundbites of leftist sweet nothings with a brief credit and source.
The left always likes bringing up Hitler, like they hate him, yet when you go to an Occupy Wall Street protest, they go on and on about how they hate the Jews..progressives only bring up Hitler when it suits them, but in reality they admire him

Exactly. Just roll tape and let it flow, one comment right after another. No commentary. I bet he’d have enough material for the entire 3 hrs.
None of these people is a comedian, and nothing they say is a “joke.” They mean every last word of it.
you sent this to Rush?
At least Rush’s words were descriptive of Fluke’s testimony about herself This SOB is beyond rude and crude. To make disgusting vulgar remarks about a politician he disagrees with (provided this dumbass even knows about the issues) and to include Trig Palin in his stupidity is unworthy of any “apology”
He said what he meant.....a childish vulgar idiot who will pay for his words one day.
First, anyone who compares any US political figure to Hitler has instantly lost the argument. No one is even close to him in any way. Not the same leage, the same ballpark, the same sport. And both sides do it. but everyone should acknwoledge that no one is Hitler. Obama isn’t. Bush isn’t. Pelosi isn’t. Clinton isn’t. Palin isn’t. No one is. Hopefully that’s something everyone can agree on.
Moreover I never really understood all these leftists and liberals who have all this hatred for Gov Palin. She’s never done anything to them. Louis CK lives in CA or NY. She’s had absolutely zero impact on his life. Or on anyone’s for that matter. Except in AK, where the people who actually were affected seemed to be pretty ok with her.
I could understand people not liking Bush or Cheney. If you were against the Iraq War or mad at the economy or upset at gay marriage or other issues, they were in charge. Fine. But the left has nothing to be upset about over Palin. No one was sent to Iraq or Afghanistan or anywhere because of her. No one lost their job or their savings or their house because of her. Not one gay guy was prevented rom marrying or going out with anyone because of her. And yet the hatred is glaring. I never understood it. If I was on the left why would I even care about her? Did I care about Edwards or Lieberman after Gore or Kerry lost? I’ve never understood this obsession.
As for the WHCD and Louis CK this is even worse than Rush. Rush speaks extemporaneously for 400+ hrs a year. Of course he’s going to say things he shouldn’t or later regrets.
The WHCD however has invited Louis CK knowing full well what he’s said. By inviting him they’re endorsing it. Would they have invited him if he’d said similar comments with a racial slant? Or against gays? Jews? I doubt it. (Maybe they would, who knows?).
Especially after the Rush thing I think an effort to get him removed from this would be successful if enough strength was behind it. Jay Carney should be asked tomorrow if the President supports an organization he’s associated with havin someone who has said things like this represent them? Remember, Obama was the 1st to call for Imus to be fired and specifically said that someone who speaks about women in that way should have no place on tv and he’d fire anyone in his employ who did so.
Lets see if he still belives that. If Obama appears at the WHCD he is saying he’s now ok with saying that kind of stuff.
If Obama really cares about civility, if he really wants to see both sides tone it down, he should come out and say that he won’t attend the WHCD if Louis CK remains the “entertainment”. They’d find someone else in a few seconds. I think it would actually help him politically. Be a Sister Souljah moment for him. The media would praise him for being above it all and standing up for civility.
Hopefully this gets some steam. This is an official media organization supported by the WH and the rest of the media giving a platform to someone who has said things that are clearly misogynist, racist, against children, pretty much everything you can think of.
Do all the media organizations that will attend this support him? Are they ok with it?
I guess we’ll find out. But it would be nice to see a major effort started to bring this up and see if any action can be taken, especially with the media and the left so all of a sudden intereste din civility and using disparaging language aimed at women.
One word and one word only: abortion.
If you want to arouse the most violent, virulent, unspeakable hatred from liberals, just imply that you oppose abortion on demand. If a liberal thinks you in any way oppose their so-called "right" to destroy innocent life in the womb, you will arouse hatred of an almost breathtaking intensity, and they will hate you with a hatred that surely must be born of the devil himself. Palin is hated by liberals for this reason alone, and their hatred is implacable and pathological.
But, he apologized later!
Oh wait! No, he didn't. The word 'apology' is only in conservatives' lexicon. Leftists never even heard of the word!!
Im waiting for someone in the media to bring up what Mike Malloy said on Friday saying how happy he was that so many people died in the tornadoes..so far all I have heard are crickets from the media..the left are hypocrites, they use phony outrage to pull their political agenda but use the same words to describe those on the right
That's how the GOP became the "Gutless, Old Party"!
Did you see his PHOTO? He is either:
Takes it in the rear
All of the above
Actually it’s more the fault of the polticians. They are the ones who ought to be raising hell about the language, insults and hypocrisy
It’s one thing to not defend Rush in this situation. It’s another to sit idly by while the left shoots its collective childish mouth off
If I was a politician, I would despise them so much I couldn’t resist calling them out. None of us should.
He’s just a liberal, therefore a hater.
I was hoping he would just open the show today playing tape of some of the vile things Liberals have said, but having the whole show running the stuff could not be ignored.
They are Stalinst-Socialists. They will fight tooth and nail and lie and deceive.
They are in bed with the Occupantload Communists who openly advocate overthrowing “capitalism” and our form of government and then shrug their shoulders and deceptively say they “don’t know” what they will replace it with (MARXISM).
Identity politics only matters to the left when you SERVE the interests of The (Socialist) Party. You cross them, you are an Uncle Tom, a sell-out, a whore who deserves to be raped (go look up Sandra Berhard for that bit of brilliance).
They are vile evil people and of course they deny their inner being. All Stalinists lie as a matter of course.
Saul Alinsky was okay with that.
They are sorry that you are a f’in retarded Christian. < /sarc >
That’s about all you will hear them mutter under their breadth.
And all of this birther control nonsense began on a bet between George Stephanopolus and Diane Sawyer.
