As those of you in the US know, the BCS National Championship game was played this past Monday. Alabama beat Notre Dame 42-14, which is a blowout. Even during the first quarter, it was obvious that the game wasn't going to be close, so the announcers had to find something else to talk about; they had to find some filler.
They found that filler in the form of Katherine Webb, girlfriend of Alabama quarterback AJ McCarron. Miss Webb also happens to be 2012 Miss Alabama USA, so you know she's a beautiful, young woman. Mr. Musberger's crime was to comment on this, and to discuss it with his colleague, Kirk Herbstreit. Mr. Herbstreit was a quarterback for Ohio State who didn't play in the NFL; that's important, because Mr. Musberger alludes to quarterbacks getting all the pretty girls.
Well, we can't have that now! We can't have two men pointing out the obvious: that Miss Katherine Webb is beautiful; why, that's objectifying and demeaning her! That's what the feminists said anyway. ESPN felt compelled to issue an apology. Thank goodness Mr. Musberger had enough stones to not apologize. One, because he didn't kowtow to the feminists; that's a small victory of sorts. Second, he didn't do anything wrong, so there was no need to apologize. Here's the clip in question...
Oh, by the way, Katherine Webb was interviewed on the Today Show. She wasn't the least bit offended; if anything, she appreciated the compliment. Take THAT, feminists!
Then, I heard that Kathy Griffin performed simulated, oral sex on Anderson Cooper during CNN's New Year's Eve coverage. There was NO OUTRAGE WHATSOEVER from feminists, the national media, or their PC fascist lackeys. Did anyone hear any outrage over what Griffin did? I didn't. Ah, but what Griffin did was okay, because: 1) she's a woman; 2) she's a feminist (redundant?); 3) CNN is a socialist network. It's all right when a socialist, PC fascist does something outrageous. Here's the clip. Warning: this is NOT suitable for kids!
Don't you just LOVE the double standard, folks? Don't you just love how feminists and women (redundant? Sometimes I wonder) screech like crazy about Brent Musberger's harmless comment? Don't you just love how they totally gave Kathy Griffin and Anderson Cooper a pass for simulated oral sex on TV?! THAT was the truly outrageous deed, but nothing was said about that-oh no. No, what got discussed was the-gasp-'horror' of Brent Musberger pointing out that a beautiful woman is, in fact, beautiful.
In closing, Brent Musberger did nothing wrong. He and Kirk Herbstreit were trying to talk about something other than the football game, which had already become a predictable, boring blowout. Shame on ESPN for backing down and apologizing; shame on them! Messrs. Musberger and Herbstreit, thankfully, had some stones; neither one of them as of right now, has apologized; neither one of them have caved into feminists ridiculous demands. What really should have been disparaged was Kathy Griffin's trashy act during the CNN New Year's Eve broadcast, but that was swept under the rug. I shouldn't have expected anything different though. Have a good day now...
