Chris Matthews Promotes Vile, Misogynist Video Attack on Gov. Palin

Contributing Authors: Stacy Drake and Ron Devito

MSNBC's Chris Matthews, who is world renowned for having Obama-induced tingles running up his legs yesterday aired as an "upper" and "comedy" an alleged "satire" video, which was a sexist and misogynist attack on Governor Palin and her family, Real Clear Politics (RCP) reported. The "Funny or Die" video contained in the RCP article is a sanitized version. The video casts Gov. Palin as a dim-witted, narcissistic bimbo who undergoes a 30-day-long mental breakdown as Washington Post columnist Dana Milbank's "Ignore Sarah Palin Month" goes into full effect. The sanitized video includes footage of the caricature giving an interview to an empty chair on Day 9 stating that Trig is not her child. The video culminates with the caricature not knowing that February only has 28 days. In reality, "Ignore Sarah Palin Month" did not even last one day, as reported by Adrienne Ross.

Following is a summary of what was in the un-cut video:
- Day 5: A panicked "Palin" offering to talk to Katie Couric about porn
- Day 6: "Palin" saying, "Levi Johnston, I [had sex with] him."
- Days 12 and Day 15: "Palin" with what appears to be a speared baby talking about a "blood libel"
- Day 19: Asking Rush Limbaugh for painkillers and claiming she "can see Russia from her vagina"
- Day 25: Licking on a deer antler - suggestive of oral sex.
Matthews - who RCP wrote has a long misogynistic history with women from both the left and right - lauded the video's creators as "comedic geniuses."

Call to Action

We are urging all supporters of Gov. Palin to stand up against this misogynist attack. Recall the success in 2009, when four advertisers pulled out of David Letterman's show in the wake of a scheduled rally to have him fired over "jokes" he made about Gov. Palin and her daughter Willow.

Express your outrage by contacting NBC:

Contact the advertisers and urge them to not sponsor Matthews' misogynist antics.
