Tina Fey Blasts Todd Akin for "Legitimate Rape" Remark [She stays we/Morgan after "gay" rant]
ivillage.com ^ | October 25, 2012

We wish Tina Fey would weigh in on politics more often! The 30 Rock creator, who rocked the 2008 Presidential election with her dead-on SNL impression of Sarah Palin, hasn't been so vocal about this year's race. But at a Wednesday night benefit for women's health, the comedian had some withering remarks for Missouri Senate candidate Todd Akin...

"Todd Akin claims that women can't really get pregnant from a legitimate rape because the body secretes hormones," Fey told the audience. "Now I can't even finish this sentence without getting dumber; it's making me dumber when I say it -- but it's something about the body not being able to get pregnant when it's under physical stress."

Sorry for the poor formatting...my point was to point out the hypocrisy of Tina and her embrace of Tracy Morgan after he went on a long extended speech about wanting to stab his gay son....but Akin makes a single remark she disagrees with, and he cannot be forgiven.

Fey is a skank who is going to find it harder and harder to find work now that she is getting older (the Hollywood “War on [Older] Women” is much worse than anything they claim Romney is doing). Her impersonation of Palin was banal and only got laughs because it played to peoples’ hatred (kinda like the white actors who got in blackface in the old minstrel shows).

Morgan has a screw loose. I remember his rant. After he got criticism from the PC police, he said something like gays “can take a ________ but can't take a joke.” I thought it was kinda funny.

IIRC, nobody had a problem with Whoopi claiming that an instance of statutory rape was not "rape, rape".

I guess it's another of those politically correct rules where black people can call each other n**** and it's just camaraderie but if a white person uses the word it is a mortal offense.

Likewise if a non-liberal male speaks on rape he is immediately attacked for saying something that would be otherwise overlooked . It's almost as if he actually committed a rape just for using the prohibited words.

This election cycle has made me loathe a large portion of my own gender. Rape, rape, rape....birth control, birth control, birth control.....apparently these twits think of themselves as walking, talking vaginas and nothing more.

Fey is a skank...

Unlike many liberal women, she has not yet taken on the "look" (you know the one); she's still a very attractive woman.

According to state-controlled media, a Tina Fey quote is the same thing as a Sarah Palin quote.

My first comment, a direct quote from a witness to Tracy Morgan’s extended anti-gay rant has been deleted. Here is a link...though be warned the language may offend some:

He didn’t said the woman couldn’t get pregnant, only that it is difficult.

Yes, and they have the nerve to get offended when men treat them as such!

Yes, they do. I have zero sympathy.

These women are willing to give up their femininity, their maternal instincts, to have freedom to murder their fetus, to have sex whenever and with whoever they please without worry of pregnancy,to have recreational sex with either sex,to have no moral qualms whatsoever. If that's the way they want it, thats what they will get and respect for them will suffer and they will be treated as the Sperm receptacles they are and apparently wish to be. It's just too bad that women who still want to be women will suffer from it..

Stopping Sarcasm
I resent the way my wife speaks to me.

Dear Reader: Sarcasm is indeed a profound and distressing behavior. And you’re right — it’s not an innocuous way of making jokes. For starters, here are some synonyms for sarcasm: mockery, derision, cynicism, disdain, scorn. None of these words imply anything positive. If you’re the brunt of derision, scorn, mockery, etc., especially in a close relationship, how could you possibly feel good about the exchange? And yet, people who are allegedly close use sarcasm commonly in their communication.

Sarcasm is psychologically rooted in anger, distrust and cowardice. People using are angry or frustrated, don’t trust the other person (or themselves) to pull off speaking speak directly, and are often afraid to take the risk to express their true feelings.
