    Jewess Joan Rivers Calls Michelle Obama 'Blackie O' ?

    Comedienne Joan Rivers revealed she once ditched a joke about First Lady Michelle Obama from her stand-up routine - because she feared she'd be accused of racism.

    Recalling the wisecrack to shock Jock Howard Stern, the comedy legend said: "We used to have Jackie O now we have Blackie O!"

    "Bet she won't have to apologize nor will the Jew media criticize her for being RACIST!" :eusa_whistle:

    Hard to believe that bat is still alive.

    Wasn't she married to Al Jolsen?

    Blackie O :lol: That is funny.

    Joan Rivers is an eoe comedienne . . . no one is spared from being the butt of her jokes. She tosses PC out the window, which is why she's funny.

    Everytime I see Michelle Obama I always think she's imitating Jackie Kennedy. They wanna be the new Camelot couple. Uh, they're not . . . not by a long shot.

    I don't think anyone has ever accused Joan Rivers of having good taste.

    She's a comedian who thrives on bad taste. Of course it's racist. Comedians use much and she uses everything.

    But what I notice is divman's attempt to turn her comedy into a Jewish racial indictment. His smilie shows his intent.

    So, Joan recognized that her comment MIGHT (oh, say, "possibly") be taken as racially insensitive or offensive. And on THAT basis she cut the line from her act -- until she got on Howard's radio show to tell it anyway?

    Joan ain't really "all there" anymore, is she?

    As for the line itself. Fucking let's face facts. If this country had not had such a long and sordid history of racism (about which we still suffer historical guilt), the line itself would be pretty funny. But given our justifiable reluctance to say shit that is racially insensitive (or even offensive), that kind of wit does strike us as being at least a little bit out of bounds. That might not be such a terrible outcome.

    Oh well.

    Well he was a politician.

    I guess this comment is what really got Rivers kicked off of Fox?
