Fox guest uses 'anatomical slang' to describe Palin

Keith Olbermann is outraged at the lack of outrage that greeted a Fox News guest's use of a crude "anatomical slur" in reference to Sarah Palin's appeal to female voters.
"This morning, a Fixed News guest used a word so outrageous about the governor's anatomy, that had it been said by a Democrat or in any other venue, the conservatives' phony outrage meter would have burst and Republicans might have been rioting in the street," Olbermann exclaimed Thursday, approaching full outrage mode himself. "But it was said on Fox, so it was just funny."
In his most concerned tone of voice, Olbermann warned his viewers of the "sexist anatomical slang in here which we have not bleeped over" before showing a clip from Thursday's Fox & Friends.
The crime in question? Bloomberg News's Carolyn Baum said Palin wouldn't bring women to the Republican ticket just because "she has boobies."
Olbermann went on to highlight Palin's two night interview with conservative host Sean Hannity, accusing the Fox personality of lobbing softballs in an interview "that was slightly less hard hitting than one you'd see on a late night infomercial." He displayed a minute long highlight reel of excerpts from the interview.
The criticism of Hannity going easy on Palin is certainly fair, although the same thing could be -- and was -- said of Olbermann's own recent sit down with Democratic candidate Barack Obama. As for the infomercial joke, Jon Stewart did it better on his own show.
