PBS memory-holes Tina Fey’s attack on conservative women.

One wonders why they bothered.  One, it’s PBS; two, Fey’s comments were in receiving one of those awards that apparently exist solely to give neurotic artists a little external self-confidence; and three, it’s not like Tina Fey wasn’t saying anything that we’ve all drearily come to expect from the American celebrity Left.  To wit:

“And, you know, politics aside, the success of Sarah Palin and women like her is good for all women – except, of course –those who will end up, you know, like, paying for their own rape ‘kit ‘n’ stuff,” Fey said. “But for everybody else, it’s a win-win. Unless you’re a gay woman who wants to marry your partner of 20 years – whatever. But for most women, the success of conservative women is good for all of us. Unless you believe in evolution. You know – actually, I take it back. The whole thing’s a disaster.”

Nonetheless, PBS cut it out of the rebroadcast.  They claim that they didn’t do it for political reasons; they did not also claim that they didn’t do it because starting next January the federal purse strings will be in the hands of some very annoyed politicians with a burning need to cut government spending and no sense of humor about attacks on conservative women; but that’s probably because nobody had the mother-wit to ask.  Which is my way of saying that PBS’ claim was nonsense: they knew very well how people would react to slime like that, so they cut it out forthwith.  Which was a mistake: up to now they didn’t own any part of Fey’s nastiness.  Now they do.

As for Tina Fey: I don’t know about the rest of you, but I am getting tired of being lectured about public policy by my intellectual and academic inferiors, simply because they happen to have more symmetrical faces than mine.
