Sarah Palin’s tobacco dip shows anti-bullying advocate Dan Savage the ‘upsides of oral cancer’

Shut up, you crybaby conservatives — Dan Savage is the nation’s preeminent authority on bullying and he’ll let you know when you’ve been bullied. No, seriously: in his role as founder of the White House-endorsed “It Gets Better” campaign, he has the textbook definition of bullying at hand, and if he wants to make a “joke” about Sarah Palin getting cancer following her dip at the NRA convention yesterday, he will.

No power differential, no foul. Now shut up, pansy asses.

  • Rob

    Not against the personal choice (I smoke) but, ew. Chewing tobacco? Not very lady like.
    But hey, it’s easier after the crusade against smokers. Can spit in public sinks and urinals (it seems) but if you’re a smoker? 150 yards from the door. Don’t care how cold it is!

    • DavidKramer

      Not hers, quit listening to moronic lefties. They did not even get the joke they are so droll.

      • Rob

        I know it’s not her crusade. I just saw an opportunity to whine and too kit. It’s an idiot crusade armed with bad science. (Second hand smoke is more deadly than first hand because no filter? Thus all of the people addicted to the smoking sections of businesses breathing in smoke diluted through 1000 cubic feet of air. (Not to say it is NOT harmful but no worse than sitting in a traffic jam)

      I am a smoker as well, but I can’t stand chew. I really hope Sarah is NOT chewing >_<

      • TocksNedlog

        She did it ONE TIME to make a point.
        That is all.

        • Jared Mucha

          She didn’t even use it. She pulled it out said it was todd’s an put it back in her pocket, Never used it,

          • Rob

            Yay! And as a smoker. NEVER START.

        • RogueRose

          Watch her speech.. she didn’t.. she had Todd’s chew in her back pocket and pulled it out as a visual aid. She didn’t even open it. Eeeesh, the things people are willing to believe.

          • Garym

            Not to be too nitpicky but Skoal is a dip, not a chew.

          • KentM

            Then why bring it up

        • descolada9

          Ah, okay. Thanks for the clarification, folks.

        • $23293071

          You are adorable, she didn’t dip.

        • sarahsupporter

          She didn’t even DO it!! It was a prop!!

      • cvmoonshadow

        She said don’t make me do it. And then said Todd was looking for it all morning. It was a prop like the Soda except she only pat it on her hand like a pack of smokes then put it back into her pocket. I was only a visual. Get it?

    • Deacon Blue

      If you bothered to watch the You tube speech you would know that she did not use it, it was her husbands and she used the tin as a stage prop…. sheesh the stupid is rampant tonight

      • descolada9

        Okay, okay, Deacon, I get it, stop hitting me with the broom :*(

    • KentM

      Hey folks she did not chew just pulled a joke and the dweebs went nuts as usual they have the facts wrong.

      • Sarah4Prez

        She did it to tweek the left – and it worked! She lives in their heads rent free!

    • sarahsupporter

      she doesn’t chew, don’t listen to Savage. It was a prop in her speect!!

  • AaronHarrisinAlaska

    See guys, it’s not bullying because it doesn’t fit his adopted definition. So it’s perfectly okay. You know, two wrongs make a right and all that.

    • Ben Bollman

      His adopted definition of bullying also come from the senior editor of Slate, which is totally unbiased.

      • MikeTX62

        You’re being sarcastic, right?? You don’t really see Slate as “unbiased”, do you??!?

  • Steve_J

    He’s just classless.

  • grais

    Why on earth would Dan Savage choose to wake up to Sarah Palin’s voice? Doesn’t seem like a real bright thing to do if he hates her so much.
    Oh, wait…maybe he’s lying about that and he just woke up with a nasty urge to hope she gets cancer, so that he could then spout that nonsense about what bullying really is.
    Good God, if I had to live like he does, I might just take the gaspipe.
    Who is this clown again?

  • AaronHarrisinAlaska

    Oh hey. Look. Webster’s had a different definition

    1. a blustering, quarrelsome, overbearing person who habitually badgers and intimidates smaller or weaker people.
    2. a man hired to do violence.
    3. a pimp or procurer.

    Here’s what Oxford had to say

    Definition of bully

    noun (plural bullies)
    a person who uses strength or power to harm or intimidate those who are weaker.

    verb (bullies, bullying, bullied)
    [with object]
    use superior strength or influence to intimidate (someone), typically to force him or her to do what one wants

    It’s the same no matter where you look. With how Dan has a hang up on conservatives, and uses his hang up as a justification for saying what he does, I’d say the word bully aptly describes him.

    • Garym


    • Thursdaythe12th

      He’s a vile, loathsome creature isn’t he?

    • AMSilver

      Liberals had to change the definition of bullying so that it can only apply to conservatives. They did the same thing with racism. That way they can claim that conservatives are the ones with the power (because liberals are always fighting against the establishment and white priviledge and thousands of years of social heirarchy or somesuch) and therefore the only ones capable of bullying/racism. No matter how much bigger/meaner a gay person is than a religious one, the gay person can never be the bully. Whatever a gay person does/says to a religious person must be defense against bullying because societally the power differential is on the side of the religious person (according to them). They change the definition so it fits for groups (which don’t exist in real life – they get to create them and therefore define them and therefore whatever they say can in some sense be true) instead of for individuals. Dealing with things on an individual level is just too hard, and isn’t something government can do successfully, so stick everyone into groups and liberals can finally manage/fix society.
      Personally, I’d say the Oxford definition is also slightly off. A smaller/weaker person can bully a bigger/stronger one as long as the person being bullied is in a position where they feel they must take the abuse.

      • AaronHarrisinAlaska

        I was also going to quite Wictionary but its changeable by any one. It had the clearest definition though. An act of phisycle, mental, or verbal abuse or coercion perpetually acted against some one or a group.

      • Abir Mandal

        What about the first lady (a stretch by any means)?

      • freeinaz

        You mean the First Lady who was responsible for kicking non-insured people out of the hospital she worked at with her best friend Valerie Jarrett?

  • CitizenEgg

    Did Dan Savage ever come out with an opinion on Sully’s gynecological fetish regarding Sarah and the birth of Trig? I always have to think hard to remember who Dan Savage is, and then I remember he’s really just another lefty troll.

    • GaryTheBrave

      I hope he’s not related to Micheal Savage.

      • thetreyman

        you mean Micheal Weiner.

  • Ben Bollman

    So let me get this straight Dan, your definition of bullying comes from Emily Bazelon, the senior editor of Slate, instead of the dictionary? You are a dumbass.

    • freeinaz

      Scum would be more appropriate.

      • TugboatPhil

        Can’t we compromise? How about dumbass scum?

        • waltzingmtilda


          • TugboatPhil

            Now THAT’s compromise!

    • Travis Wolfeil

      If he’d ever get an STD such as AIDS or that deadly strain of meningitis that’s floating around in NYC’s gay community and elsewhere, and a famous conservative like Mark Levin said, “Now seeing the upside of STDs,” there’s no doubt that he’d start crying like a baby. He also didn’t mind playing into the “effeminate gay man” stereotype his liberal ilk love to hate—by making fun of Ben Shapiro’s voice: Again, a gay, “anti-bullying” liberal pretending to “care” about people. Liberals claim it’s “bullying” to say that they sympathize with (or, possibly even support) Islamists and commies, yet, somehow this “doesn’t count.” Since this freak actually licked doorknobs and other objects in Gary Bauer’s campaign office—to infect people with his flu, he’ll obviously die a sad, bigoted, angry man.

  • TugboatPhil

    Well I guess he would be knowledgeable about oral cankers….it was what? Oh, never mind.

  • BlahBlah

    I feel like putting out smokes on his gay ass.

    That’s not bullying, right?

    • GaryTheBrave

      You didn’t repeat it and you’re not in a position of relative strength so no, it;s not bullying.

  • TocksNedlog

    So, his ‘defense’ is “I’m NOT a bully; I’m just a hate-filled, hate-fueled pr*ck.”


  • DeBaliviere

      So very many of them are. And that’s the thing that is driving me crazy about our current political climate. These people are scumbags and they don’t care about the people they claim to represent as long as the votes and the money continue to flow. They are the ultimate definition of the word hypocrite, but when you call them on it, they are only too happy to destroy the person speaking the truth through whatever means necessary.

    I see kids get bullied all the time. I try to do something about it but am limited to sending them to ‘guidance’ where the most useless employees in my school reside (they don’t really WORK).

I had a child bullied repeatedly by a special ed kid (how stupid to bully a teacher’s kid) and it only stopped when the moron left school. Dan’s definition is the kind of PC, CYA definition that doesn’t ever solve a problem. It just gives lazy idiots and excuse to ignore a problem and bullies free reign within its vague limits.

    The moment Obama’s policies do not obey the most recent, most fashionable, and politically correct dictates, you will find yourselves at close proximity with a serious and formidable enemy.
