Sandra Bernhard and Women on the verge of a nervous breakdown

Posted on: September 20, 2008

Update 9-22-09

Wanted to mention this discussion of Sarah Palin in general, the reaction of Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown (sorry Pedro Almadovar), including a discussion of Sandra Bernhard –  the blogtalkRadio show at NoQuarter, hosted by the DC-Media Girl, and guested by Violet Socks. Use this link.  Great conversation, highly recommended.

And this statement from Bernhard on the reaction to the Palin segment:

That comment is part of a much larger, nuanced, and yes, provocative (that’s what I do) piece from my show about racism, freedom, women’s rights, and the extreme views of Governor Sarah Palin—a woman who doesn’t believe that other women should have the right to choose, even in cases of rape or incest; a woman whose administration forced the victims of violent crime to pay for their own rape kits. Women deserve better. I certainly wish Governor Palin no harm—I’d just like her to explain to me how she can hold such outrageous views…and then go back to Alaska. – Sandra Bernhard

 People who fuss over details know that both points raised by Sandra Bernhard are baseless. The first one is a personal conviction, not affecting policy; the second one has been debunked (discussed in the blogtalkradio linked above). But aesthetes agree, this does not take away from  the constructional value of it to  the art piece, peotic license. It does beg the question, by releasing just these few minutes, is the theatre’s Marketing being equally outrageous, or just fiendishly clever?

Original Post begins here:

I can’t hear you talking and having a nervous breakdown Sandra. The liberal women, feminists, progressives, and left-wing ladies are all in knots about Sarah. This is no genteel, The Best Man. No this is Sandra on Sarah, fully tweaked to tease and annoy and titillate all at the same time. They gave us a tiny clip.

Let this speak for itself.

 

From a discussion at the Theatre J Blog, of the space where Bernhardt is performing.

When Sandra warns Sarah Palin not to come into Manhattan lest she get gang-raped by some of Sandra’s big black brothers, she’s being provocative, combative, humorous, and yes, let’s allow, disgusting. The fact that the show has a few riffs like this does not — to my mind — make it a “disgusting show.” there’s too much beauty, variety, vitality, and intelligence to label the entire show as “disgusting.” I’ll agree with you that we produced this show because we did find it to be edgy — because we wanted to give right wing conservative Jews a good run for their money by being on the receiving end of some blistering indictments from Sandra.Does it go over the edge sometimes? On the gang-rape joke, yes. Sure. Not much else. It goes over the edge and then comes right back to the cutting edge.Finally you ask, “where is the Theater J staff and council? Where is the DCJCC administration?” They were all there on opening night, one night before you came. We partied together after. There were three members of Theater J staff at the show last night, and there’ll be more of us this weekend when we present three shows — soon to be all sold out. I was teaching a political theater class last night, but I’ll be back for everything this weekend.We’re proud of our producing – proud of Sandra’s sense of timing – taking the fight out to the house and to the street beyond, channeling so much of our rage and frustration at the bizarre recent twists of fortune since Karl Rove trotted out Sarah Palin for John McCain to briefly meet and then get in bed with.Sandra’s face is hanging 10 feet tall in a banner over the DCJCC steps and we’re proud that she’s a new emblem and ambassador for our theater and our center. She’s not the only one who represents us. But her large heart, her generous talent, and her big mouth are all a big part of who we are.

 

More later .. Randy Rhodes is calling.

Sandra Bernhard? Isn’t she a child molestor? Another Obama’s supporters speaks….what does this say about him and the company he keeps. May be Sandra and Lindsey Lohan (Obama’s Girls Unite) could go on the radio together to show support for Mr. Obama! I am sure we would all want to listen carfully to what they have to say! NOT! NOT! NOT! Just saying their names makes you want to go take a shower to clean the flith off.

No!! She is not! A google search showed that it was comic Paula Poundstone, charged with child molesting in 2001. She pleaded no contest to lesser charges of “felony child abuse and a misdemeanor charge of inflicting injury”. Her conduct was blamed on a drinking problem. (Link) It’s possible you confused the two ladies. – sharmajee

Rebekah: Sorry to disappoint, and because I know you really don’t want to spread untruths I’ll tell you she is not a child molester.

I wonder of stuff in comments can be considered slander?

** Thanks for that!

    Home from commercial fishing grounds in Bristol Bay, and here's Piper helping slay salmon to market! A good season for wild reds on the Nushagak, Piper hopes to make enough to cover, maybe, a cell phone bill.

  • It Takes a Village... to Slay a Salmon July 3, 2013
    The beauty of catching some of our Alaskan species with fins is the amount of meat harvested with each fish. Rod and reeling red salmon, or, my favorite, a big (or even not so big) halibut ensures you've got a few dinners taken care of even when feeding a bunch of people.We had a blast hauling in halibut in Homer a few days ago, despite the cold rain an […]
  • Commemorating the 150th Anniversary of Gettysburg June 30, 2013
    Today marks the beginning of the week-long ceremonies commemorating the 150th anniversary of the Battle of Gettysburg. There will be a full re-enactment of the battle, discussions with panels of historians, and of course a re-reading of the Gettysburg Address. But as Lincoln affirmed when he dedicated that hallowed ground, nothing we say or do can “add or de […]

    If you missed President Obama’s State of the Union address last night, you didn’t miss much – especially if you watched any of his past four State of the Union addresses. We heard the same recycled rhetoric, and we heard his Orwellian declaration that the cornucopia of new federal programs he proposed, as well as his intention to eradicate world poverty, wou […]

    Best wishes to everyone for a happy New Year! In the coming days there will be a great deal of debate about the goings-on in the political arena and the shenanigans in Washington.

    Listen up, America! The feminist left wants you to know that the solution to the white supremacy plague, that began when the pilgrims hit Plymouth Rock, is more white abortions.

    The media's liberal bias keep getting worse in the Age of Trump. The Motor City Madman has had a change of heart.

And he’ll do his part by shelving his own ugly comments regarding the modern Left. “At the […]

    Liberals made a big deal out of the report that Fox News has dropped its old slogan “Fair and Balanced.” The slogan was always a mockery of the liberal media’s rejection of what they call “false balance.” It’s “false balance” because the conservative view is false. From their arrogant viewpoint, only the “truth” is worth reporting. That same worldview infect […]
