Funny, I don't remember media outrage when unfunny Kathy Griffin told Jesus to "suck it" on stage....or when unfunny David Letterman attacked the Palin kids.

A cursory examination of The Onion will find LOTS of material that will offend many people. Suddenly the bigoted media is repulsed by this crap?

Quvenzhané Wallis is black, and thus “protected”.

Christianity and Palin kids are laudable targets in the liberal mind.

The Onion lost all relevency when they went hard Left politically.

Before they moved out of Wisconsin and to New York, they were slightly left (which comedians aren’t?) but they went “Full Retard” for Obama in the past five years.

Half of the stuff they write isn’t funny, and the other half is heavily contrived.

The attempt at humor is, of course, done by denigrating someone whose character is impeccable. Kind of the reverse of a jest about Clinton being full of fidelity, or Obama loving America.

Quvenzhané

What the hell kind of name is THAT? How's it supposed to be pronounced?

This is the end result of shock comedy. It started in the 50s and 60s and each generation of comic has had to be more shocking to get the audience to laugh. So now we have some comedy writer trying to shock people into laughing by calling a 9 year old a “c___t.” Before this comedy writers tried to get laughs by having sweet old ladies using the foulest of four letter words and talking graphically about sex. Hopefully this shows that shock comedy is in its death troes.

Our culture is going to hit rock bottom sooner or later. It’s not far from it yet.
