Hypocrisy in Action

Two Broke Girls is an offensive little TV show on some channel...I've never watched it but I've seen the trailers.

Very rich dumb blond has lost all her money, and apparently can't do anyting except get a job as a waitress, with a streetwise New York-ish girl who likes to use her assets (her breasts) to get what she wants.

So for the Super Bowl there's a commercial of this disgusting show with the two women pole dancing for the delight of the boys and men in the audience who, once again, are confirmed in their lifelong instruction that girls were put on this earth merely to be eye candy for them.

So some idiot staffer for some politician tweets, "Me likey Broke Girls" and he has been fired. Why???

Because he said "Me likey" which is pidgin English I guess and thus offensive to the Chinese?

Or because he made a personal comment on a politician's official tweet account?

It was hardly any more offensive than the show itself, which is designed to appeal to the male demographic who think women can't do a damn thing except be waitresses and give them sex or at least eye candy.

A spokesman for Idaho Rep. Raul Labrador has reportedly been fired for mistakenly tweeting from his boss' account during the Super Bowl about a risque ad for the CBS sitcom "2 Broke Girls."
“Me likey Broke Girls,” Phil Hardy, who had been operating Labrador's Twitter account, tweeted Sunday after seeing the spot that featured the show's stars—Kat Dennings and Beth Behrs—pole-dancing to Def Leppard's "Pour Some Sugar On Me."
The tweet was deleted within 14 seconds but was quickly archived by Politwoops, a website that collects deleted tweets from politicians.
“For Rep. Raúl R. Labrador, the most memorable moment seemed to come during an ad for CBS's 2 Broke Girls involving a stripper pole, clothes being ripped off, and a cherry being seductively consumed," Politwoops cheerily explained.

Labrador's office issued a public apology for the tweet on Monday. According to the Idaho Statesman, Labrador then fired Hardy, who had worked for the Republican congressman since 2010.
A receptionist at Labrador's office in Meridian, Idaho, referred a call from Yahoo News to his office on Capitol Hill, which did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
Toggling between personal and work-related social media accounts can be tricky.
"For those familiar with managing multiple Twitter accounts on Tweetdeck, this is a mistake of nightmares," Mashable.com noted. "It's all-too easy to confuse your organization's account with your personal one."
And in this case, the confusion apparently cost a Hill staffer his job.
According to the paper, Hardy previously "worked in the music industry, including a stint in London, specializing in heavy metal bands, before coming to Idaho"—which may partially explain his momentary lapse in judgment at the sight of two women gyrating to the hard rock tune.
