Bill Maher Calls Sarah Palin A 'Dumb [Vagina]'

March 19th, 2011 4:57 PM

The sexist media attacks on Sarah Palin clearly know no bounds.

On Friday, in the middle of his opening monologue on HBO's "Real Time," Bill Maher actually used a highly derogatory term for a woman's vagina while referring to the former Alaska governor (video courtesy Jeff Poor follows with transcript and commentary, serious vulgarity warning):

BILL MAHER: Oh, and did you hear this? [Laughs] Sarah Palin finally heard what happened in Japan…

[Audience laughter]

MAHER: …and she’s demanding that we invade Tsunami. I mean, she says, “These Tsunamians will not get away with this.” Oh speaking of dumb twats, did you…

[Audience laughter and applause]

MAHER: Oh, you’re right, yeah I let the cat out the bag on that one, huh folks?”

Is the universal media hatred for this woman so pervasive that it's now acceptable for a man to call her that?

Can the dreaded C-word be far behind?

At what point will women's groups such as NOW step in and complain about this disgracefully sexist treatment?

Or has the double standard surrounding women on different sides of the political aisle now reached a point that anything no matter how vulgar or offensive is totally acceptable if it is said about a conservative?

Nice job, Bill. Stay classy!
