Lean forward? MSNBC contributor jokes that Lindsey Graham is a woman

Ladies and gentlemen, the oh-so-enlightened comedy stylings of MSNBC contributor and “Game Change” co-author John Heilemann.

Don’t forget to try to veal!

Here’s what Heilemann said about Sen. Kelly Ayotte joining Sens. John McCain and Lindsey Graham as their “third amigo” now that Sen. Joe Lieberman is moving on.

They need a third amigo at all times. So now they have — now two of the three are women — now at least one of the three are women.

Presumably it was a dig at unmarried South Carolina Sen. Graham. Because, you know, nothing says tolerance like using “woman” as a slur. Believe us, the ladies love it! Heilemann must get all the chicks.

So, did the “Morning Joe” crew call out Heilemann for attacking Graham’s masculinity on the “Lean Forward” network? Nah. They laughed, then quickly cut away.

And after their giggle fits, they edited that part out of the second airing.

Why is it OK? Duh! Because liberalism comes with a free pass on sexism, racism and pretty much all forms of bigotry. Didn’t you know?

Heilemann and “Morning Joe” hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski have yet to acknowledge the obnoxious remark on their respective Twitter accounts. But MSNBC’s quick and dirty edits aren’t going to make this one go away now that Drudge is on the case.

    Hyprocrites R Us would be a better slogan than lean forward for MSNBC

    Revolting bunch of liberal vermin maggots. It seems as though gay is cool…unless you happen to be a conservative.

    I’m sorry.

    The eyes are old & going bad.

    I kept seeing “…contains a free pus on sexism”.
    Perhaps b/c it’s more accurate.

    Stuff like this is a perfect example of one of reasons we were so shocked at the election results. This is so commonplace and we just laughed it off, assuming it was so obvious to everyone. The libs are serious and they truly don’t see the double standard, crazy as that sounds. Conservatives that tried to sound the alarms (like Malkin, Coulter, Rush and Breitbart, among others) were dismissed as right wing crazies and that narrative was believed by the majority of voters. Again, hard to believe, but it happened, didn’t it.

    We need to find a new play book to get around this.

    Liberals are the biggest homophobes and misogynists of all. Think about it. Kathy Griffin, Joan Rivers, all the late night pop culture boys…continually make gay jokes but because of Stockholm syndrome many LGBT people laugh and still consider these creeps as on “their side”. Even GQ magazine had to apologize to Adam Lambert for making a hate ~joke about him lacking testosterone when he grew a beard. It’s rampant and the misogyny? Don’t get me started.

    Joes, retarded, he just needs to admit he doesn’t know the difference. Then everyone can understand his delima.

      The real issue is the gay bashing hypocracy, doesn’t matter at whom it was directed.

        He doesn’t care, he’s a Lefty, he believes it’s all right to do that to The Right.
