The Palin Porno:

It was only a matter of time. Last night, someone sent us an ad from Craigslist L.A., supposedly placed by porn producers searching for a Sarah Palin lookalike for an upcoming skin flick. It’s since been removed (perhaps they were able to cast Eva Angelina?), but here is the original text for your edification.

Sarah Palin look-alike for an adult film to be shot in next 10 days. Major adult studio. Please send pix, stats etc. ASAP Pay: $2000-3000 No anal required.

Obviously, this is disgusting and horrific, and we must demand that Vivid counter by producing a porno starring a Joe Biden lookalike immediately for parity. But also we’re intrigued — by the no-anal clause, of course, and the title potential. Our tipster suggested Impalin’ Sarah: The Pork She Couldn’t Say “No Thanks” To, but we think they’ll probably go with Drill Baby Drill.

Sigh. Pardon the pun, but Reclusive Leftist nailed it:

Today’s generation of young adults has marinated since childhood in a pornified, sexist culture in which women are relentlessly objectified, demeaned, and ridiculed. Hating on women (or should I just say “bitches” or “hos” now?) is all they really know. It’s second nature. It’s on TV, in the magazines, in the music, in the pornography. The public debasement of women is more commonplace than I’ve ever seen.

That’s why women are going to vote for Sarah Palin. Especially women over 40, because they’re the ones old enough to have grown up before the backlash, before the zeitgeist of misogyny took hold. They’ll be voting from their guts. They’ll be acting on the deep understanding that we desperately need change — and not the kind of amorphous Pepsi Generation empty promise Barack Obama specializes in.

We need to change the culture to one where women have power and respect and dignity. Where a woman can run for President or Vice-President without automatically having her likeness rendered as a sex toy. Where a woman in the White House is no big deal.

Not to be a total pessimist, but we’re all doomed.

Update, Oct 2: Larry Flynt is just expressing his free speech, dudez!

Flynt’s spokesman David Carrillo confirmed to us yesterday that the film has been shot by Hustler Video, but he wouldn’t yet reveal the title. They need only consult bloggers from humorist Mo Rocca to Choire Sicha at Radar, who upon discovery of the ad came up with such gems as “Juneau You Want It” and “Northern Xxxposure.”

Ha, ha. Ha, ha. People are just so witty.
