Yet again, Bill O'Reilly dude bro pal and washed up comedian Dennis Miller shows us what he really thinks about smart women. Don't ya love the smell of testosterone in the evening!
Given that Bill O'Reilly still lives in a "traditionalist" patriarchal America where sexism was an acceptable part of the boys-will-be-boys culture, it isn't surprising that he embraces Dennis Miller's Madmen era sexism. Thus, alleged sexual harasser O'Reilly laughed when Miller attacked US Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz's appearance and claimed that liberal women are jealous of Sarah Palin's sex life. O'Reilly had no problem with Miller describing US Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi as "the queen of the forehead lock" and "a creepy dame." But, Miller is non-partisan when it comes to his 1950's gangster lexicon as shown in his description failed Senate candidate, Sharron Angle, as a "great dame."
Wednesday night, during his "Miller Time" segment, Miller began his "comedy" routine with a slam on the president's handling of ISIS. Invoking his patented references to old, obscure movies, he compared Obama to a character in "Hoosiers." He then segued to the State Department which "is being manned or womaned [Bill snorted] by all the young chicks on the pep squad, who couldn't make the cheerleader, who came out with the fake, white guns and the donuts [WTF?] at halftime."
After that nice, bit of sexism, he continued to insult the president by claiming that Obama didn't care about the execution of the Coptic Christians (he condemned it) and describing Obama as "a leaning tower of appeasement." More incoherent pontification followed.
There are, obviously, men who work in State. But for Miller, it's all about those stupid dames who, obviously, have a far keener understanding of international affairs than Miller whose only claim to fame is spouting hate and misogyny on a show noted for its hate and misogyny!
Then again, I’d certainly like to know what Miller’s qualifications are to discuss any politics. He started off as a stand-up comic, who managed to get on SNL for some 5 or 6 years where his greatest contribution was to anchor “Weekend Update” (he certainly didn’t manage to stand out in any of the sketches, much less create a memorable character unless fellow cast members, Jon Lovitz and Phil Hartman and Dana Carvey). After leaving SNL, he didn’t really do much of note. Which, I suppose, is enough qualification as a “political analyst” when it comes to FoxNoise.
