Sarah Palin: Masturbation Material?


(Puts on flame proof suit.)

I saw some stories today about Tracy Morgan. Rather, I saw the headlines of a few stories I didn't bother to read. Why? Well, I'm not a big fan, for starters. Plus, I figured it couldn't hurt to miss one more Hollywood dipstick knocking Sarah Palin. Seen one, seen 'em all, right?

Hmmmph. Well, now I've read the stories, and watched the TNT video at The Other McCain. I gotta ask:

That's it?! That's what all the uproar is about?!

Good grief.

Some folks are becoming waaaayyyy too sensitive where Ms. Sarah is concerned. I mean, what did he say? He agreed that she's an attractive woman. Then he went a tad bit farther.

This hardly qualifies as Palin Derangement Syndrome. Sexist? A bit. Harmful, or insulting? Not so much. Political? Oh, please.

Sarah Palin is an attractive woman. I can't say that I've ever personally drawn on her for "material", but I can see it. She's kinda got that whole sexy librarian thing going. So, since when it is a bad thing to be recognized as sexy - especially if you are?

In fact, my only real objection would be that I don't think they should discuss masturbation during sports because kids watch sports. Of course, with the very explicit ED commercials, even masturbation talk is tame in comparison.

Still, I think some of you need to get over this one. It's minor, and was intended (I believe) as a half-assed compliment.

(If ya'll aren't careful, you're going to find yourself on the same side of the argument as feminists. Heh. Palin Derangement Derangement Syndrome.)

So to everyone hyperventilating over this non-story:

Lighten up, Francis.

(Suit off. Let 'er rip.)
