Read the article and get back to me. OK, she was at a roast and she made fun of Notre Dame and Jesus. Now, I have never been to a roast. I have always thought the idea was to make some pretty offensive, unfunny comments while drunk. At least that's what Comedy Central taught me. And I do not know what she said about Jesus. But again, at a roast, I believed that anything went. That if someone called me a cheap kike, I was supposed to laugh. But again, thank you, Comedy Central, their roast of Chevy Chase proved that you can't always laugh at yourself. Have you seen that roast? Agonizing. At the end of the MSNBC link, there is a reference to the lynching comment made the other day on the Golf Network. Again, without knowing what was said about Jesus at a roast, is this even in the same universe of stupid comments? Any reference to "lynch" and a black person, no matter what the intent, is pretty much a no-no on our nation's airwaves. I don't know. Not being able to mock freaking Notre Dame is an abomination. Even when you aren't at a roast. Your thoughts? I think this is a knee-jerk, ass-covering reaction to the situation, that the crowds would be irked to high heaven if ESPN didn't take some action. So, I understand that. But when you can't say something incredible stupid and insensitive at a roast, what's that mean?
