Can you imagine how feminist leaders would react if a talk show host agreed that a prominent Democratic female politician should pose nude for Playboy?
Well, responding to the unfunny “comedian” Sarah Silverman’s crack “about whether Sarah Palin should pose for Playboy” on his program last Tuesday, Larry King agreed when she said, “I think she should go for it”.
At least one feminist leader, Lulu Flores, president of the National Women’s Political Caucus, spoke out, telling “POLITICO that King’s comments were, ‘waaaaayyy inappropriate.'”
But, don’t you have the sense that if a conservative comedian made this kind of crack on, say, O’Reilly, Beck or Hannity, we’d be hearing a lot more about it?
