How about being stroked while listening to the strokes… I’d much prefer that

Less than five hours after the launch of The Sarah Palin Channel, the fledgling online subscription-based network has landed itself in a major controversy, after a person being interviewed by Palin herself repeatedly referred to President Barack Obama using the highly offensive “N” word.
During The Sarah Palin Channel’s launch event on Sunday evening, Palin sat down for a live “Real America” interview with George Seymour, 58, a coal miner from Bowling Green, Kentucky, as a part of what Palin had hoped would be “a series of interviews with real Americans, from real America, offering real American perspectives.”
During the thirty-minute interview, Palin asked Seymour about taxes, government regulations, and even international affairs, taking in the regular Joe’s amateur perspective on Russia’s acts of aggression toward the Ukraine and the most recent conflict between Israel and Palestine. But when she asked Seymour what he thought about Barack Obama’s presidency, the network’s first real scandal broke.
“I hate that n,” Seymour said angrily. “I call him `N Hitler.’ He wants to stick everyone that don’t agree with him in concentration camps [and] make us wear the mark of the beast. He’s a Muslim, gay-loving n* Hitler and there’s not a day that goes by where I don’t wish he was dead or in jail.”
Palin seemed nonplussed with regards to Seymour’s incendiary comments. “[Laughing] well George, that’s the kind of honest opinion we’re looking for here on the Sarah Palin Channel. Unedited real talk from a real American like yourself is always welcome here.”
Of course that’s the kind of “honest opinion” they’re looking for on the Sarah Palin channel. It only took 5 hours for the racism to bubble over. It should be really interesting to see how much more “honesty” we’re likely to get from this source.
It’s not a scandal though. The Tea Party very often pretends that the scores and scores of obnoxiously racist protest signs that have been photographed and commented on in the past several years have been outliers. The problem is that the GOP isn’t bothering to temper the frenzied members of their base, and many of their opinions are decidedly not media ready…the way the very same people (like this) feel comfortable telling that really racist joke after they look around the room first, Ol’ Seymour was being honest and that sort of honesty would have gone 100 percent uncontested if it wasn’t on television. Palin probably patted him on the back for it after the camera was off.
(I should start using “honesty” as a code for blatant racism.)
National report (the source) is satire folks.
