“This ad really spoke to me, in that it featured a talking vagina”

Last night, Stephen Colbert took on the racist and douchey (literally!) Summer’s Eve commercials that we wrote about last week. It is, predictably, five minutes and forty-six seconds of pure gold.

“It’s not because [Palin and Bachmann] have breasts, it’s because they are boobs”

I always have a problem with Bill Maher.  I almost always agree with what he says.  And I thought his movie “Religulous” was hilarious.  But I don’t like his “style” as a comedian and he sometimes is unnecessarily “anti” particular individuals.  And his comments on women sometimes (often?) sound sexist.
