Profile: Sarah Silverman

I've written a lot of dirty words on this post. I mean a lot a lot. Heck of a lot more than I originally intended to, anyway. First hundred posts or so, I don't think there's so much as a "hell". Then we dropped a couple of BS's here and there. Finally, there was the David Mamet post. That kind of broke the dam. Now it's like a Chris Rock special in here.

And yet, when it came time to type the word JAP for the first time (in Barbie) I really hesitated. Something about the word just put me off. I've written some absolutely virulent stuff over the years and somehow JAP upsets me? That's like being a daredevil who's afraid of spiders. Seriously, don't I have bigger things to worry about?

In any case, thanks to readers Jake from Ohio and Marissa from Illinois for suggesting Ms. Silverman.


  1. What is it with another run of woman profiles?
    Brooke Burke, Sarah Bernhardt, Lindsay Lohan, Sarah Silverman. Recently we just had Pink, Valerie Plame, Tori Spelling, Julia Louis-Dreyfuss. And before that, Rosa Luxembourg, Sasha Cohen, Meryl Streep, Sarah Palin, Barbara Walters, Ann Landers. Do we plan this or something?
