Video: S.E. Cupp and “The View” slam “Hustler”

posted at 4:01 pm on May 24, 2012 by Allahpundit

Via Greg Hengler, a cleansing bit of feelgood bipartisan solidarity after yesterday’s sleaze. Has anyone on the left actually defended the “Hustler” stunt, incidentally? Hasselbeck says here that she can’t get NOW to pick up the phone (yet), but the only liberal willing to go to bat for Flynt that I’ve seen is this miserable has-been. Did I miss any others?

Yesterday’s deep thought from the man responsible was that the photoshop of Cupp is “satire,” even though it’s unclear to everyone what’s being “satirized.” Here’s today’s deep thought, which is a lot closer to satire than yesterday’s was:

In an interview with Reihan Salam for Vice magazine, pornographer Larry Flynt reveals that he’s now a hardcore supporter of President Obama’s just two years after calling Obama an “ineffectual wimp” for giving in too much to Republicans.

“I think President Obama has overperformed,” Flynt says. “He got handed on his platter when he became president more than any president in history ever had to deal with…. I think he’s done a marvelous job.”

Two clips for you, the first from “The View” and the second, via Mediaite, of the “Red Eye” crew wondering whether she can sue. The moment when Cupp talks about feeling ashamed despite having done nothing at all will break your heart. If it’s any comfort to her, and I’m guessing it’s not, there’s nothing personal in what “Hustler” did. If they hadn’t used her image, they would have used Michelle’s or Ann Coulter’s or Ann Romney’s or some other conservative woman’s. It was an attack on all; she just happened to be the one who took the hit. There’s a funny bit of truth too in the other clip when Gutfeld describes freaking out years ago after he found out his sister’s boyfriend bought “Hustler” instead of “Playboy.” The striking thing about the photoshop is that, even in the context of a porn mag, there’s no pretense made that it’s supposed to be titillating. It’s pure degradation, explicitly designed as punishment for her politics. That’s the same vibe that made Greg shudder, even as a kid.

Yes! Ingraham has this tough ‘masculine’ style about her (gosh is that sexist?) and Dr. Crowley is elegant & beautiful. Sadly, cranky-arse BOR is always interjecting in on their TV time. Would love Ingraham/Crowley TV. Just great. Malkin’s always on fire…if I had a buck for every time she uses the phrase ‘kabuki theater’ :-).

Really starting to like Kimberly Guilfoyle, too. She’s really letting it out now.

Oh please let’s stop having the vapors and climbing aboard the Feigned Outrage train every time some cretin does something cretinous. All this has done is drive up their circulation. This is silly.

I can just imagine the liberal outrage if a porn magazine photoshopped Michael Obama’s horned hell-spawned phallus in Barack Obama’s pie hole. Or even just took the photo and printed it.

What’s your opinion on Dr. Who?
 
Esthier on May 24, 2012 at 6:02 PM

 
Heh…um…how to answer this…
 
MadisonConservative on May 24, 2012 at 6:22 PM

 
You should at least catch “Blink”, Esthier. Season three, episode ten according to the googles.
 
But don’t expect all the episodes to be that clever. Most are pretty very campy, but they’ll grow on you quickly.
 
(And, just between us, I liked Tennant, and as a non-purist I-just-watch-the-show I encourage you to watch his episodes. His timing could’ve been used better, but he was bound to the writing. As an old guy who watched the other old guys, I do think Smith has been the most Doctor-ish, however. And it’s probably worth going through the series just to get to the Amy Pond story.)

KOOLAID2 on May 24, 2012 at 8:07 PM

He’s not “playing” me, I have been around this too long…but he is not well if he thinks he is being “clever”…like the post is about, Larry Flynt, ask him and he will say he is “funny and clever”…and he isn’t either one…nor is this other guy, trust me, he is not “playing”, that is how these guys survive, no one believes someone can be that nutty…he is a sick person.
And when called out, he suddenly became “lucid”? Hardly, it was a dose of reality, no one writes what he writes without a disorder…no more than Larry Flynt does what he does and is considered “normal”.
Being “played” is inferring that someone else is just so much smarter…but notice how quickly he retreated when exposed?
He is not a well man…if this his how he gets his “kicks”.

right2bright on May 24, 2012 at 8:17 PM

I’d like to read an obit stating that Flynt died from choking on his own vomit.

Not satire.

S. D. on May 24, 2012 at 8:21 PM

I missed something, we are on Dr. Who now? I’ve been watching the new series on NetFlix starting with Eccelston as the Dr. He seems like a pretty good actor. I had seen a few with Tennant on BBC America. Good enough episodes to make me go back and watch the others. Tennant kinda looks like an alien. Matt Smith look’s like a Munster.

I agree with the comment. I’m guilty of the same when it comes to Liberal women and I do laugh at Rachel Maddow jokes.

RepubChica on May 24, 2012 at 6:56 PM

We’re all guilty. That’s my point. Admittedly, I have a hard time being sympathetic to Rachel Maddow. But, I can acknowledge personal bias when it surfaces.

Meghan McCain has been savaged by the right as harshly as anyone. She’s a great person to appeal to women and younger conservatives. But that gain is lost by the ad hominem attacks directed her way.

Capitalist Hog on May 24, 2012 at 8:46 PM

Watching the part of the video where SE Cupp says she feels ashamed makes me want to give her a big hug. I feel so bad for her.

Those liberal slime.

portlandon on May 24, 2012 at 4:57 PM

And they’d be slime no matter whom they did this to. If they Photoshopped a picture of Glenn Beck to make it look like he’s “pleasuring” a woman or a man or whomever, my outrage would be the same.

bmmg39 on May 24, 2012 at 8:50 PM

That’s a load of crap. Megghan McCain is a bimbo and nobody thinks she’s a conservative. You are basically saying women and young people can only be appealed to with bimbos.

That wasn’t done by a conservative. That was done by Princess Leia and Meg started it by chaining her up. Don’t smear all of us for the acts of a princess.

I can’t believe anybody familiar with Meghan McCain would think she’s some kind of influential person. People take her as seriously as they take Snooki,and it has nothing to do with her blonde hair as she is fond of saying.

It’s no surprise at all that misogynistic, hardcore pornographers are also hardcore supporters of Barack Obama.

bluegill on May 24, 2012 at 10:25 PM

Bluegill.

I appreciate your commentary. But I don’t think it’s fair to stereotype everybody in the porn industry as anti-women or Obama supporters. Stereotyping is wrong.

Dr. Tesla on May 24, 2012 at 10:35 PM

At least I’m not the only one who thinks this is all a little empty. Gay America shouldn’t have to wait and it shouldn’t have to grovel. Gay people deserve better than to be a political chit. I just hope they remember what they’re fighting for — it’s not about winning one (straight) man’s approval. It’s about winning equal rights.

That’s S.E. Cupps statement for gay marriage, but she doesn’t address the core issue and that is gays don’t have babies and thus their relationship isn’t the same as a heterosexual relationship. To say it’s just a matter of equal rights (which means she’s indirectly saying it’s bigotry to oppose gay marriage) is kind of Meghan McCain type of thinking. The whole point of marriage was to encourage the guy to stay with the women he knocked up. I don’t think there is any overwhelming need to confer government perks to gay people simply b/c they have sex with each other.

Dr. Tesla on May 24, 2012 at 10:41 PM

My heart goes out to S.E. Cupp. You could see such sadness written on her face.

S.E., the shame is all on that low-life, dirty rotten piece of human dung, Larry Flynt. We’re on your side, my conservative sister, and WE LOVE AND SUPPORT YOU ALWAYS.

Conservchik,

Is she really a conservative? I kind of get that impression she’s maybe slightly more conservative than Meghan McCain.

Dr. Tesla on May 24, 2012 at 10:51 PM

I’m surprised they targeted S.E. Cupp if she has the standard liberal view on gay marriage. I would have thought that would get you out of the crosshairs b/c gay marriage is really their #1 issue now. I guess her book about the left’s “war on religion” bothered them though.

The moment you see its name at the bottom of a post, don’t even look at the text. Scroll right past.

That almost always works for me, and so you are not tempted to reply to what it says.

Yep, surprising how fast you can get thru a thread, and without numbing your brain with it’s feed. Still, it’s mighty funny how it is allowed to threaten a member here and Racecard what banned for doing the same thing.

Tesla is a troll. This has been mentioned numerous times on this thread and the previous S E Cupp thread, yet people keep responding to it anyway.

He does not care what you think or say about Tina Korbe or anything.

Don’t fight it, challenge it, ask it to prove anything.

Don’t engage it. That’s what it wants.

Dr. Tesla on May 24, 2012 at 8:51 PM

Incorrect, Dr. Tesla.

I do not stipulate that she’s a bimbo. And I did not suggest that she was the “only” way to attract young conservatives.

You do, however, bolster my assertions with your gender-slur.

Joy! Here’s another hypocrite. He defends S.E. Cupp then turns around and insults DWS with unbridled, attacks that are entirely based on her gender.

Obama should be required to address this issue in the same way the democratics demanded Republicans answer for Rush Limbaugh’s comments about Sandra Fluck.

jaime on May 24, 2012 at 4:28 PM

If Obama doesn’t publicly condemn Larry Flynt, the internet should fill with pictures of Maureen Dowd photoshopped into the same position as Cupp.

Debbie Wasserman-Schultz must get hit on all the time then, if you believe this study. Which I don’t because I can’t believe anyone would even consider sticking the old Jolly Roger in that maggot-infested skank.

Let’s not make Megan out to be something she isn’t. She is just a ‘safe’ republican (or “Progressive Republican” in her words) for liberal talking heads to banter with so they can claim ‘balance’ even when all she is doing is agreeing with them. She’s a hack who obfuscates conservative views for fun and profit.

Hustler got more publicity than it has gotten in years, so they win.

Moesart on May 25, 2012 at 11:04 AM

If there is anyone other than Roseanne Barr who qualifies as being a has-been, it is Larry Flynt. This bucket of scum is a virtual living legend in his own mind who has absolutely nothing in his life to be proud of. He is an ignorant foul mouthed little twerp who seems to feel it is perfectly OK to attack anyone, even those who have done him no harm or even mentioned his name in the past.

His attack on someone like S.E. Cupp may prove to be his final doing himself in. This time, the only defense he has out there is an equally loudmouthed scumbucket who has done nothing lately other than make herself as obnoxious and an annoyance as Flynt is.

pilamaye on May 25, 2012 at 11:10 AM

Why does our society cater to women so much? If this was a conservative man that Hustler photo-shopped in there, nobody would even be talking about this because nobody would care.

NeverLiberal on May 25, 2012 at 12:26 PM

Apparently BIll Maher was featured in Hustler in the same scenario as S. E. Cupp. Nobody was crying for BIll Maher. I got to admit I laughed when I heard about this.

When human trash like Maher and Flynt give total support to Obama and at the same time attack conservative women in such an evil way, it reminds us of the dire straits our country is in and why the American people must rise up and distinquish the attacks on our country from within. Evil of this magnitude will increase exponentially if left unchecked. Our only hope is that the American people will finally wake up and reclaim the American way of life that under attack as never before. Ariel Durant said, A great civilization cannot be conquered from without until it destroys itself from within.” Barry Soetero is trying to make that happen.
