Ellen Degeneres plays Sally Kern bigoted rant
on her show, then tried to call Sally. Got a message, and was sent to voicemail, and the mailbox was full. For those who don't know, Kern is the Oklahoma legislator who was recorded saying the most outrageous thngs about gays and their "agenda".

She played the whole thing - it was awesome!

3. Thanks for that link
I hadn't heard the audio before, nor had I read a transcript. I mean, you hear one bigoted homophobic rant you've heard 'em all, right?

I guess not. Sheesh that's vile :scared:

4. I hope there's a way we can all join together to help
ruin her career.

She deserves to lose everything she's achieved in life for this.

5. glad to see ellen become "political" again.
She has as much right to do this as Oprah does to endorse Obama, dammit.

I guess I can forgive her for crossing the picket lines.

I am very glad that she is willing to put a spotlight on the bigotry in this country.

10. She was great with the story
of Lawrence King, too. She told his story and made a strong statement.

11. Good for Ellen.
I think there are some things that she gets pissed about...such as the death of Lawrence King...and she just can't be silent about it. Good for Ellen.

12. Then she tried to call Kern
but got a message and was sent to voicemail, but her voicemail was full!

Ellen said "I bet!"

So then she just made fun of her for awhile. Then Wanda Sykes came out and made fun of her. It was great.

14. That was on today's Ellen, right?
Damn. It comes on at 3PM here in Chicago. I won't be able to make it home to see it. :-(

Sounds like a great show. BTW: Wanda Sykes is touring with the True Colors tour this month, in case you want to see it near your area. :-)

19. sigh
it was on youtube briefly, but it's been removed.

But here's what she said on the air after getting a full voice mailbox:

Hi, Sally, this is Ellen. The gay one. And I would like to leave a message. I just want to talk to you based on some things you said. Id like to clear some things up for you. So give me a call Im usually here, but later on Ill be at the Dinah Shore Golf Tournament, of course. Thats if it doesnt conflict with the womens basketball games I go to. Oh, Sally, Sally Sally.

13. Thanks Ellen. Now, on to Sally Kern.
You should start retyping your resum, Ms. Kern. And come with us to the conference room. We need to talk.

Ellen's had a rough time of it earlier this year, when she tried to keep her staff from being fired by restarting her show, and was unfairly criticized for it. I say we should send her a thank you for two very good acts she's done.
