TV bosses apologize for Tracy Morgan's Sarah Palin comment
The Daily Dish via SF Gate ^ | January 28, 2011 | The Daily Dish via SF Gate

TV bosses have issued an apology after Tracy Morgan made a lewd remark about former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin on live TV.

The "30 Rock" star stunned viewers with the comment about the former Alaskan governor during his appearance on the "Inside The NBA" broadcast on Thursday.

Host Charles Barkley asked the funnyman, "Sarah Palin's good looking, isn't she?" prompting Morgan to reply, "Now let me tell you something about Sarah Palin man, she's good masturbation material. The glasses and all that? Great masturbation material."

Imagine the role reversal (black/white, Liberal/Conservative), the Lefty hacks would be in Tizzyville writing about racism, sexism...24/7 coverage.

Not for Sarah, a quiet apology and a backpage utterance in an entertainment blog.

What a classless imbecile. And they want civility?
They wouldn’t know civility if it punched them in the mouth.

Moving along.................

That was one of the sleaziest things I’ve heard in a long time. The guy is a low life and is a gutless wonder. Like to see him say that in front of the first Dude. Betcha he’d be smiling out the other side of his head.

Sir Charles is a know-it-all with lots of opinions.

Know-it-alls with lots of opinions are drawn to gambling.

The story goes Vegas loves Sir Charles because Vegas was built on losers and it is sustained by losers which it politically supports like Harry Reid.

The MSM pays Sir Charles for his stupid ass opinions and Sir Charles takes the money that he is paid for his stupid ass opinions and blows the money on his stupid ass opinions in Vegas.

The life of a celebrity is difficult to relate to, whether it be Charlie Barkley or Charlie Sheen.

I don’t get it. David Letterman calls for the rape of Sarah Palin’s kid; Kathy whatserface calls for open season on her. The Democrats and their anchormen/spokesmen call her a stupid slut. Nobody touches them. Tracy Morgan’s comments were lewd, crass, and something I’ve read about 1,000 Freepers suggest at in more subtle tones, and the TV bosses apologize for him.

I can’t believe I’m “playing the race card,” but is it because he’s black? Black people who find white women attractive might rape them? Or, as Working Women’s favorite workplace, Playboy, calls it,”hate f-—.” Yeah, that’s right. The winner of so many feminist awards, including Working Women’s “Best Place to Work” actually named her the woman they’d most like to “hate f-—.” But Tracy Morgan...?

Liberals always say they were “just joking” when caught saying this type of crap.

It even happened yesterday here in Oklahoma. Since the Education Secretary is a Republican and the board remains Henry's (former Democrat governor) appointments, the liberals decided to be “uncivil” They then said they were “just joking” about the pregnant women.

Thanks for even remotely suggesting that image.

Hmm, remember A Clockwork Orange? Maybe they should have been using nude images of her majesty Nancy instead. Old Alex DeLarge would surely have been "cured" after that.

I liked some of his stuff when he was on SNL.

Recently watched an HBO concert special he did. I kept waiting for it to get funny, but it was an hour of my life I will never get back. In fact, it got worse with every minute and it was probably one of the crudest stand up routines I had ever seen.

I think he recently got a Kidney Transplant. That must explain why he is as unfunny as George Lopez.

Do you remember a TV show called "Fridays"? Larry David was a regular cast member. The show had the following skit (from Wikipedia):

"The Ronny Horror Show" - A sprawling 17-minute send-up of the incoming Reagan Administration based on The Rocky Horror Picture Show. In the sketch, Ronald Reagan (played by John Roarke in Dr. Frank N. Furter drag) plans on creating the ultimate Republican, but inadvertently creates an angry gay black militant (played by Darrow Igus) who kills Reagan and leads the people in a revolution. To this day many consider this sketch to have been the series' tour de force. Like "Diner of the Living Dead", this sketch was shown when it first came on and subsequently edited out in all reruns. Unlike "Diner of the Living Dead", "The Ronny Horror Show" was edited, not because of content, but because the producer of The Rocky Horror Picture Show protested against the film being parodied without his permission.

Of course he is crude and I didn't care for him on SNL.

But...he was talking about how pretty she is. I don't think he meant it as criticism. And he was talking to basketball plyers!

I’m with you. He wasn’t being uncomplementary. I guess the feminists complained maybe. That’s the kind of thing they’d complain about. Many have said far far worse. Wasn’t the media as a whole trying to tie her into the AZ shootings somehow? That’s far more awful.

I read the comments of the article. They confirm the sad state we’re in. There is no common ground with the lib’s. They’re uninformed and unable to make a individual opinion. Shallow and vulgar is what they’re best at and they think they’re witty.

Read this article and you will understand what this sort of thing is all about: The Wilding of Sarah Palin

"And so the Left must try to destroy her. And they are doing this in the most malicious of ways: by symbolically raping her. Just like a perpetuator, they dehumanize her by objectifying her body. They undress her with their eyes. They turn her into a piece of *ss....

...The extreme Left still consider themselves warriors, righteous soldiers for their Marxist cause. With Palin, they use sexual violence as part of their military arsenal. Palin is not the only intended victim...the brutality is also aimed at men. By forcing men to witness Palin's violation, the Left tries to emasculate conservative men and render them powerless..."

Morgan's vile remarks are part of the ongoing public gang-rape of Sarah Palin. And conservative men are forced to watch.

Libs have no idea the level of steam that is building up.
