Where did he mock disabled vets?

He pretended to be one to mock Palin.

HUGE difference.

This is actually a good thing.

Nothing is sacred any longer.

Everything is allowed.

It doesn't even have to be funny!

Just say it's funny and it's all good!



To be fair his stuff is hilarious, bit you're right... Nobody should be playing the role of a vet, right?

Destroy all the war movies, it's just disgustingly disrespectful to play a soldier in any form.

Or just get over a little comedy act?

Like I said, this is the left's great opportunity to actually be honest and mock veterans.


I'm not opposed, it's not like it's been a big secret anyway.

*shrug*

Huh? Say it ain't so.

Didn't know Sacha was representative of the whole left, he supposedly impersonated a veteran, still not seen evidence though.

BTW there's many "lefties" who are veterans, the "right" do not run the gambit on military service.

Whatever.

Though you won't see too many on the "right" mocking disabled vets like the left does.

*shrugs*

Own it.

...but pretending to be a disabled veteran in a wheelchair? that crosses the line of decency.


Was he? Or did she just infer that?

And I'm pretty sure the vets can handle it.

Not mocking vets but politicians.
Do you want cheese with your whine?.

Not even whining.

Just pointing out the passive-aggressive obvious.

I think it's likely you just don't get Mr. Cohen - not everyone does. He wasn't mocking veterans - it's pretty obvious who he was after

If it was Clinton he was mocking he would be singing a different tune.

He mocked Sarah Palin though not vets.

From what I gather he didn't impersonate a vet, he played on the "blondness" of Mrs Palin.

Bad taste? Maybe but then there's usually s group offended by his work, usually the one with egg on their face.

I mean c'mon DB, you're mocked plenty round here and you even mock yourself, Sarah Palin went all snowflakey after this interview, sometimes you have to laugh... At others and yourself.

Don't really care about Palin.

Don't even care about the Sacha guy.

He played up being a disabled vet. And then doubled down.

Not saying he shouldn't do it. Hell, I'd support his right to mock disabled vets while sh#tting on the flag.



But I don't have to find it amusing.


I know comedy.



I live it.

I can also cut myself down better than anyone on this site.


But if you or anyone is going to support him on this, then own it.


That's all.

*shrug*

My opinion on the subject.

maybe not 'mocking' but he was being hugely insulting and disrespectful by pretending to be one.
is he really supposed to be proud of taking advantage of Governor Palin's generosity? she participated expecting to be able to discuss veterans issues and her support of same. unbelievably low thing to do.

So did you watch the program? Happen to see the first person they went with, Bernard the Socialist Sanders. He also plays an ultra-liberal character from Portland whos wife is having a relationship with a dolphin.

Did you happen to get a bio on the Dolphin? I might do a news story on it for my college ED. class.
