Google It: Can't Seem to Find Anyone Who Publicly Called Contessa Brewer a "Slut" or "Whore"
Correction: Imus Called Her a Skank, But Contessa's Spokesman Called That Comment "Over the Line"

See Correction Below.

MSNBC anchorbint insists that it's no big deal to call a woman "slutty" because, she suddenly claims, she has also been called that, and yet survived the ordeal.



Well, for one thing, one's survival in such situations is hardly in doubt. That doesn't really establish the proposition she's hinting at, that is, that it's not a big deal and perfectly fair.

For the next thing: When Ziegler asks if she'd been called a slut by Letterman, she allows that she hasn't, but that it was "public."

Now, what she is obviously talking about is someone on the internet disliking a story she did and calling her a whore or something. Indeed, the only reference I can find of her being called a "slut" or 'whore" is on a liberal site, Crooks and Liars, and there it only occurs in a comment, calling her a "Reslug whore" for mentioning the Obama-gave-the-finger story.

I am certain that there are other mentions out there (but this is the only one I can find). It's just what people say on the internet -- not saying it's good, but it's what happens.

But I find not a single mention of a genuinely "public" slur that she's a slut or whore. I find no prominent person ever saying such a thing. I don't even find a blogger calling her that, which is less a statement about how restrained bloggers are and more a statement about what a complete nobody Contessa Brewer is.

If you're so obscure that no blogger has ever called you a bad name, well, lady, you just don't rate.

Which means she pretty much lied in claiming she'd been "publicly" called a slut or whore -- unless "public" now means some anonymous commenters making very infrequent references, and using the word "whore" to mean "toady" rather than prostitute or slut.

I don't consider that "public."

Does anyone else? Does Contessa Brewer seriously contend that because one commenter on a blog that a miniscule number of people read called her a "Reslug whore" once, she can speak authoritatively about what level offense Sarah Palin is justified in taking when David Letterman calls her "slutty" and far worse (something Contessa refuses to even acknowledge) makes sexually-charged jokes about an underrage 14-year-old girl?

Really?

Really?

Oh: I should mention -- I mean before today, I can't find much evidence she's been "publicly" branded a slut.

Today, of course, people are making that charge.

Why? Because they're angry.

And also because Contessa Brewer is a cheap, sore-riddled nasty bit of gutterscrunge who'll rent you her mouth for the change in your pocket. A tawdry wallow-trollop oozing with syphilitic fester who raises her filthy skirts at the scent of crack-smoke. A disease-dripping pincushion, the media's vile mattress of last resort, a pathogen in garish vinyl high heels, a loose-toothed croup-breathed nightcrawler reeking of bathtub gin and the genetic stink of human desperation.


Corrected: She's not lying. She was called a "skank" by Imus, but only after she started a feud with him by calling him a "cantankerous old fool."

DON Imus didn’t like being called “a cantankerous old fool” by MSNBC’s Contessa Brewer on PAGE SIX. Brewer, a former news reader on Imus’ show, also said the I-man doesn’t know how to relate to “beautiful women.” “With that fat ass she’s got, she wouldn’t be one of ‘em,” Imus said on the air Friday. “That skank has to spend three hours with makeup in the morning … Who’s she kidding? . . . Plus, she’s dumber than dirt … Oh, my God, what a pig. But I was willing to cut her some slack and not say anything, you know, until - in fact, I didn’t say anything . . . That’s why they have those big double-doors there at MSNBC, you know, so they can get her fat ass in makeup.”

I stand corrected. That counts as close enough to "slut," and while Letterman is certainly more prominent than Imus, that's quibbling.

I was wrong.

But --

Contessa Brewer's claim was that she was called a slut publicly and she got through it okay. No big deal, really.

Oh?

Let's read the MSNBC spokesman's response:

An MSNBC spokesman said: “Contessa Brewer is a valued and respected employee. While Don Imus’ humor is often brilliant and provocative, we believe that this morning’s comments about Contessa went over the line. We have expressed our displeasure to Don.”

Over the line! And Contessa didn't stop that guy from issuing that statement on her behalf, nor did she shrug it off and announce "Imus is cool, no worries, water off a duck's back."

No, she protested the comment through a spokesman and called it over the line.

Contessa Brewer really is a skanky bit of mung-trash, isn't she?

Why is it that when Imus calls this bit of fun-muscle, oozing with foul custard and slackened and sloppy from over-use, a "skank," it's "over the line" but when Letterman calls Sarah Palin a "slut" it's just a harmless bit of japing ?

Thanks to k.
