Wow! How oh-so-edgy of the NBC television series “Law & Order SVU.” The show’s showrunner breathlessly tweets the news, too.

As does the ever-absurd Sen. McCaskill, who is still gleefully gloating over Todd Akin’s remarks.

Sigh. Surreal is you giddily tweeting about it, Ms. McCaskill. The sane have a different take:

Ugh, indeed. Now Hollyweird writers are resorting to dredging up old and tired news in order to expose their bias.

More from Ace of Spades:

1, I didn’t know this show was still even on.

2, “Ripped from the headlines”? Which headlines? Last August’s? Hey I’ve got a Ripped From the Headlines plot I’d like to pitch– it’s about this big boat, see, that hits an iceberg, see? Very big to-do a short time ago in all the local rags. Lots of fellers n’ dames were talking about it at the Automat, see?

Heh. Ace and fellow Twitter users up the hilarious mockery with the hashtag #RippedFromTheHeadlines. Also ripping? Our sides, which are splitting from giggles.

And, oh noes: A suggested future episode.

Please don’t make that happen. Her tweeting about it was enough.

Keep the giggles coming, Twitter.

    I have not watched much TV over the last couple years, but two shows I watched, Bones and NCIS both had blatant attacks on conservatives in recent episodes. Are all the shows this glaringly propagandist now?

            My avatar indicates my rank when I retired from the USAF as a Command Chief Master Sergeant. I retired as the highest ranking enlisted advisor to the Wing Commander. We specialized in delivering expeditionary combat communications.

            My screen name is an acronym for Senior Non-Commissioned Officer In Charge.

        Yeah, I am looking for an alternative to my Comcast package. I can get along without the cable, but the highspeed and phone service I need. Plus, Comcast is leftist to the core.

      Yes. There are few good writers and shows left.

  • gekkobear

    Did she piss on herself and force herself to puke before claiming to be on her period?

    I’ve been told that’s the only way to avoid being raped. Self-defense would be inappropriate if it exceeds this.

    If you don’t forcibly piss and puke on yourself; is it really “rape-rape”?

    #RippedFromTheHeadlines – Det Munch receives a “garden variety” slap in the face from Fin after an unwanted sexual advance, Det Benson is rushed to the ER after approaching VP Biden’s hotel room door and receiving two shotgun wounds, and Capt Cragen is executed by foreign terrorists while on security assignment to assist Libyan Embassy.

      Don’t laugh. Those hacks will write episodes JUST like that.

  • http://www.facebook.com/luke.givens.963 Luke Givens

    Law and Order has had episodes loosely based upon news events pretty much since the show has started, and the times that I’ve seen an episode it’s usually something that happened months ago, I guess presumably because it takes some time to finish producing and editing an episode and they are not filming year round. I don’t care much for the show but the franchise has been around for what, 20 or 25 years? Obviously it’s rather successful and the fact that you somehow think you are “cutting edge” by only now noticing they are basing an episode on an event from last year is pretty laughable.

    Is this about when Whoopie Goldberg said something wasn’t ‘rape rape?’

    I use to watch SVU but it like it’s sister/brother program Law and Order got STALE and resorted to BIASED LEFT LEANING so called headlines.. it’s BORING and to filled with PROPAGANDA..

  • VerminMcCann

    When is the coal mining equals rape episode coming out?

  • VerminMcCann

    Has there ever been an episode of this show where a woman who wasn’t one of the cops was attacked and used a gun to defend herself?

  • GaryTheBrave

    L and O: SVU. Part 1: A rape victim is taken to the hospital but is denied a rape kit because she does not qualify for treatment under Ocare. She is allowed to take one pill for the pain and told to use ice to control the bleeding.

    Part 2 has her going to Planned Parenthood to “remedy” the results of the rape but is told her race (white) is preferred so she is not qualified for an abortion. In the meantime her rapist is released due to lack of evidence.

  • http://whatandever.blogspot.com/ Osumashi Kinyobe

    Every episode is “ripped from the headlines” and “isn’t an episode you want to miss”. It’s how they sell their crap. If these shows had good writers, not liberal hacks, they wouldn’t have to resort to this recycled, sensationalist pig excrement. This is why NBC is a junk network. Let them keep it up. Give Netflix and other channels a shot in the arm.
