Heather Mallick Gets Her Hate On

We're a little late on this story, but for the past two weeks Fox News commentators have been up in arms in response to an article published by the CBC's Heather Mallick on September 5th comparing US Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin to a porn actress. She also went on to refer to Republican Men as sexual inadequates who must think that women would vote for Palin just because she has a vagina.

Comments are now numbering more than 1550 on the article including a recent gem from someone named Michael Collins who wrote:

I was torn between voting for Obama or voting for McCain but since Heather Mallick's bottom of the barrel and hateful comments about Sarah Palin I have made my decision. As a protest to this type of despicable characterization I will be voting for McCain/Palin.

A commenter named Ex_VanBC rightly responds:

Is that really how you'd determine who should be President of the United States? Scary.

Mallick herself and the CBC seem to be sticking to their guns, although formally the CBC has suggested they are reviewing complaints. Surely, everyone inside our national broadcaster is having a good laugh about this - the article is also getting lots of buzz around the blogosphere as well as commentary in other Canadian media like this mention (366 comments and counting) in the Globe and Mail.

All of us here were planning on just letting this blow over except we started getting emails sent to us as well - apparently some think that Mallick is a writer for blogTO. Someone named Jeff Norton wrote us the following note:

I want the contact info for the sorry excuse for the human being named Heather Mallick. She is pure middle east TRASH probably an illegal alien who came to bum f**k, Canada to work the welfare system. She clearly only has a job because of the communist Canadian government steals the taxpayers money to fund garbage like her. How do WE get to tell her more??? She has a trashy mouth so I wanted to throw some garbage in it.

Uhgh....Personally, I think everyone should just chill out and continue to enjoy the brilliance of Tina Fey and the SNL video below.
