Sandra Bernhard Gets Away with Racist Anti-Palin Tirade
The media gives celebs a pass on ugly rants — as long as they bash the right people.

Commenting on the media’s frenzied, foaming-at-the-mouth anti-McCain and Palin viciousness, Victor Davis Hanson has noted that overall, the mainstream media’s efforts to help Obama are backfiring: “Strange to say, they don’t seem to get it that they are, well, not liked or respected.” The same would seem to hold true for Hollywood actors who are growing ever more rabid in their support for the Democratic presidential nominee.
But Barack Obama might want to beware of his glamorous high-profile fans, because if there’s one thing Hollywood loves more than a high-priced cocktail party in support of its man of the moment, it’s uttering foul, racist diatribes after one too many of those cocktails.
There are many examples. Take Michael “Kramer” Richard’s racist spewing and Dog the Bounty Hunter’s career-ending slurs. Paris Hilton’s sex video may have made internet search history, but what about the video of her racist ravings?
Remember Pauly Shore? You don’t? No need to feel bad — now if only we could forget his racist ravings. Or how about Charlie Sheen, star of Emmy-nominee Two and a Half Men, who dropped the n-bomb on his ex-wife. And, even though he’s not a Hollywood celebrity — and was supposedly sober — let’s not forget liberal mouthpiece Don Imus’ “nappy head” remarks.
This week, Sandra Bernhard, another loud-mouth Hollywood liberal, has shown her true colors, too — apparently in the belief that the surest way to revive a flagging career is by uttering foul, threatening, and deranged remarks:
Now you got Uncle Women, like Sarah Palin, who jumps on the sh** and points her fingers at other women. Turncoat bitch! Don’t you f*****’ reference Old Testament, bitch!” Bernhard said. “You stay with your new Goyish crappy shiksa funky bullshit! Don’t you touch my Old Testament, you b***h! Because we have left it open for interpre-ta-tion! It is no longer taken literally! You wh*** in your f*****’ cheap New Vision cheap-a** plastic glasses and your [sneering voice] hair up. A Tina Fey-Megan Mullally brokedown bullsh** moment.
In this indescribably offensive tirade — which the DC Examiner describes as “enraged optimism” — one of Hollywood’s loudest and biggest mouthed (literally) actresses spewed her apparent belief that blacks are rapists, Jews own the Old Testament, and pro-life women are female “Uncle Toms.”
