    Talk about a war on women!!!

    MSNBC's Martin Bashir is apparently even more psycho than that other MSNBC host, Alec Baldwin. Incensed by Sarah Palin's comments comparing the U.S.'s national debt to slavery, Bashir, in a polite way, said that someone should defecate in Palin's mouth to teach her a lesson!!!!!!

    The hate spewed by MSNBC is disgusting. Bashir, Schultz, Sharpton, and Matthews are all of the same ilk.

    He had to say something like that otherwise no one will know who he is or watch his show. Personally, I had ever heard of him before so I guess his stunt worked to a certain degree even though I've only seen his picture. Dillo, I think you being very generous when you refer to that station as being part of the mainstream media.

    As one who has studied history, I have to admit it's irksome to have history-challenged right wing dingbats compare every irritating law to " slavery."

    However, the suggested punishment is loathsome, and I contend, dangerous. We're all used to having sh*** come out of the mouths of politicians and talking heads. Reversing the natural cycle could very well disrupt the space-time continuem and land us all in a world of hurt.

    Just more hypocrisy from the tolerant and compassionate left.

    Well this will probably get Bashir a raise by MSNBC and a primetime spot for his show.

    Do we need to come up with a different term for "enslavement of Africans in the United States" because slavery has occurred throughout human history, not just in the 18th and 19th centuries in the US. If Palin wanted to refer to being involuntarily in bondage to something, which is obviously how she was referring to US debt, what term is acceptable without a hyper-sensitive liberal conjuring images of defecation?

    Just like when someone refers to a game or debate being "like battle" and having someone get all butt hurt because it's insensitive to veterans of wars.

    If Palin wanted to say that we would be involuntarily bound to China, she probably shouldn't have said "When that money comes due – and this isn’t racist, but it’ll be like slavery when that note is due. We are going to beholden to the foreign master." She should have said that we'd be involuntarily bound to China. But she was pandering.

    I agree that Bashir went way over the top on that one. But I also think that Palin is an idiot.

    It feels weird saying this, because I haven't said anything nice about Sarah Palin in years. She's being treated unfairly in this issue. The "resident dunce" charge - pretty much true, but the phony outrage over the slavery comparison is unfair and disingenuous.

    First, is the comparison perfect? No. There's nothing financial you can do to someone that is the equivalent of the complete elimination of that person's rights and legally deeming them property of another person.

    However, it's absurd to say there are no similarities at all. A slave was required to work for no compensation to benefit the master. A child born into a country crushed by debt will work for no compensation to benefit the people who racked up the debt. Of course, the child has more options (at least in the immediate term), but none of them are good. He can refuse to work and destroy the national economy (if enough of them take that route) jeopardizing his food, shelter, clothing, etc. or refuse to pay taxes and face a prison sentence. Is the slave's option (trying to run away and facing potential physical beatings or death if caught) worse? Yes, but it's a matter of degree. Both are extremely ****** deals. And obviously, if we don't stop the trend, we won't be able to afford a defense if China actually tried to forcibly make us pay on our obligations, and if we get to that point, the child's option really won't be any better than a slave's.

    Second, the outrage over this is entirely fraudulent and phony. When Joe Biden made the "they're gonna put y'all back in chains" comment (comparing Romney's financial regulation plan to slavery, which was no where near as valid of a comparison as Palin's) did this filthy turd of a "commenator" bellyache about it? No. It's just more ******** and stupidity from the Democrats' Ministry of Propaganda and Public Enlightenment.

    Six days now and no repercussions for Bashir. I guess he got away with it.

    Baldwin, on the other hand, got suspended and may not come back to MSNBC for a gay slur he made out on the streets that had nothing to do with his show on MSNBC.

    Hypocritical to use hyperbolic metaphor to criticize hyperbolic metaphor. Unless you think Bashir literally wants someone to hold Palin down and do this... I'll assume he was just being like most of the posters he sees on the internet.

    If Shaun Hannity were to have said this about Michelle Obama or Hillary Clinton, you don't suppose that the left would be shrieking at the top of their collective lungs for his immediate dismissal and the effective permanent blackballing of him from the public discourse.

    Do you?
