I don’t see what the big deal is about Keith Olbermann’s tweet that conservative commentator S. E. Cupp is “a perfect demonstration of the necessity of the work Planned Parenthood does” — i.e., she should have been aborted. It’s just a variation on Dan Aykroyd’s classic rant in a Point-Counterpoint spoof:
Jane, you ignorant, misguided slut! Once again, you missed the point entirely. [ enraged ] Why should I pay hard-earned dollars so welfare tarts can have sex anytime they want, without regards to consequences? Haven’t these bimbos heard of abstinence? I, myself, haven’t had sex for two years – and I’m rich! Why should I foot the bill for killing unborn infants, anyway? I’ll pay for something practical like sterilization – but abortions? Never! With one exception – if I had been around when your mother was having you, not only would I have paid for the abortion, but I would have performed it myself!
What’s the problem? Olbermann’s also a comedian just doing an act.
