The Party of . . .

self-hating Jews, self-hating goyim, woman-hating women, and racism. It's really quite a charming little world these hard-core Barack supporters live in.

No: Sandra Bernhard isn't wearing glasses as she makes fun of Sarah Palin's glasses. But she does have her hair up as she makes fun of Palin wearing her hair up. ('S okay: it's a Queen Bee thing. You wouldn't understand. Freedom for Bee, but not for Thee.) She should have made fun of Palin's having a vagina, though she came pretty close to doing just that.

Bernhard is not just a vehicle for stoking whatever latent tensions still exist between Jews and Christians in this country—and between Jews and non-Jews (furthermore, the tension between Jewish women and "shiksas," which of course parallels the tension between white women and black women, and amounts to the same charge: "you're stealing our men"). It also stokes fears of black men as inherently violent and rape-prone, and makes violent blacks the "enforcers" for some elite, politically correct Jews. Ick.

And, of course, it rests, as The Anchoress points out, on the racist supposition that it would be worse to be gang-raped by black men vs. white men. (Sure. Their blackness . . . might rub off or something. White women fear getting Negro molecules on their skin, or up their poontangs. Or something. It's not really clear, except in Bernhard's weird imagination. I mean, if she's going to go all ethnic on the "shiksa," shouldn't the Governor be raped by gangs of Jewish guys? Are they incompetent as rapists? Do they need to work on their raping skills?)

The imagery could well exacerbate the historical rift between blacks and Jews in certain regions of the country. (Yes, New York/Tri-State: I'm looking at you.)

All in one little "comedy" routine. That's quite an accomplishment, Sandra.

By the way:

Q: You know what the problem is with Jewish men?

A: They don't like Jewish women.

Isn't that funny? No, really: isn't that fucking hilarious?

Of course, one could dissect this silly monologue further, and ask Sandra politely when Sarah has "pointed her finger" at other women (as Sandra does at the moment she accuses Sarah of same), or when she has "referenced our [!] Old Testament" in public. Palin probably has done the latter; I doubt that she's done the former. Reference, please, Madame Bernhard?

Oh, sorry: it's all about the emotion. No scholarship. No intellect.

The fact that Bernhard is so in-touch with her emotions is probably at the same time what makes her such a great actress (her performance in The King of Comedy was truly amazing), and the reason she is such a poor comic: naked aggression without cleverness or wit is not funny. It is simply sad.

John Bergstrom at has wondered shy Sandra is famous. "If my dogs balls looked like her, he'd stop licking them," he says.

I have to admit that I no longer even pretend to "get it" when it comes to things the left does, except when I put it into the context of a replacement for religion and then the pieces seem to fall into place.
Fervency of belief - Check!
Mythology - Check!
Denouncing the heretics - Double Check!
They are not simply self-hating Jews or Gentiles or Americans, they are leftists first and everything else second.
If Ahmadinejad were to campaign for Obama (and they thought it would help), then they would forget all about denouncing him at all, as long as he was against McCain/Palin.

About Joy W. McCann: I've been interviewed for Le Monde and mentioned on Fox News. I once did a segment for CNN on "Women and Guns," and this blog is periodically featured on the New York Times' blog list. My writing here has been quoted in California Lawyer. I've appeared on The Glenn and Helen Show. Oh—and Tammy Bruce once bought me breakfast.
My writing has appeared in
The Noise, Handguns, Sports Afield, The American Spectator, and (it's a long story) L.A. Parent. This is my main blog, though I'm also an alumnus of Dean's World, and I help out on the weekends at Right Wing News.
My political philosophy is quite simple: I'm a classical liberal. In our Orwellian times, that makes me a conservative, though one of a decidedly libertarian bent.
