Whoa, Way Too Much Info ... Stephanie Miller Shares Her Rape Fantasy

February 12th, 2013 4:10 PM

Turns out rape is a laughing matter, providing you're a liberal.

In her ongoing desperate efforts to remain oh so edgy, left-wing radio host Stephanie Miller tried to extract humor from a subject one would think remains decidedly unfunny -- rape. (audio clip after page break)

Here she is on her radio show yucking it up with her goofy coatcatchers. (h/t for audio, Brian Maloney at mrctv.org) --

CHRIS LAVOIE: My friend Jeff in D.C. ...

MILLER: My boy toy.

LAVOIE: Your boy toy, exactly ...

MILLER: Right.

LAVOIE: ... he and I were talking yesterday and he would like to buy you a pinball machine to put in your basement ...

MILLER: Right ...

LAVOIE: ... so that you and he can recreate the scene from "The Accused."

JIM WARD (sensing line may have been crossed, noncommittal until Miller responds): Hmm ...

MILLER: That's hot.

WARD (now confident that subject not taboo): With costumes.

MILLER: That's hot.

LAVOIE (continuing to flail away): Oh, he has wardrobe picked out and everything.

In the quarter-century since "The Accused" was released, many people have probably forgotten that its harrowing gang-rape scene was based on an actual incident in 1983 at a tavern in New Bedford, Mass. The trial that followed drew media coverage from around the world and resulted in convictions on charges of aggravated rape for four of the men in the bar. The 21-year-old victim, Cheryl Ann Arajuo, died three years later in a car crash in Florida.

It takes little imagination to envision how piously indignant liberals would react if Ann Coulter, Michelle Malkin or Laura Ingraham made a similarly lame attempt at humor. It takes far more imagination to see any of them doing so in the first place.
