Old School vs. New school

the smack-down edition

so anyway, I haven't yet made comment on the whole "Palin / Letterman" fiasco, and I'm not about to start now. I have other priorities, thank you very much.

That said, some of the ancillary fall-out from the debate has been quite amusing. One "Contessa Brewer" of MSLGBT fame "insists that it's no big deal to call a woman "slutty" because, she suddenly claims, she has also been called that, and yet survived the ordeal." As it turns out, the worst she has suffered was being called a "skank" by her former boss, Don Imus:

DON Imus didn’t like being called “a cantankerous old fool” by MSNBC’s Contessa Brewer on PAGE SIX. Brewer, a former news reader on Imus’ show, also said the I-man doesn’t know how to relate to “beautiful women.” “With that fat ass she’s got, she wouldn’t be one of ‘em,” Imus said on the air Friday. “That skank has to spend three hours with makeup in the morning … Who’s she kidding? . . . Plus, she’s dumber than dirt … Oh, my God, what a pig. But I was willing to cut her some slack and not say anything, you know, until - in fact, I didn’t say anything . . . That’s why they have those big double-doors there at MSNBC, you know, so they can get her fat ass in makeup.”
That's the previously aforementioned "Old School" (emphasis, mine).

Then Ace provides the "New School" smack-down:

Oh: I should mention -- I mean before today, I can't find much evidence she's been "publicly" branded a slut.

Today, of course, people are making that charge.

Why? Because they're angry.

And also because Contessa Brewer is a cheap, sore-riddled nasty bit of gutterscrunge who'll rent you her mouth for the change in your pocket. A tawdry wallow-trollop oozing with syphilitic fester who raises her filthy skirts at the scent of crack-smoke. A disease-dripping pincushion, the media's vile mattress of last resort, a pathogen in garish vinyl high heels, a loose-toothed croup-breathed nightcrawler reeking of bathtub gin and the genetic stink of human desperation.....

.....Why is it that when Imus calls this bit of fun-muscle, oozing with foul custard and slackened and sloppy from over-use, a "skank," it's "over the line" but when Letterman calls Sarah Palin a "slut" it's just a harmless bit of japing ?

Emphasis is again of my own doing.

"The genetic stink of human desperation" I can't wait to use that line in polite society.

more soon. thatisall.
