Oh, now that you explain it

'In her stand-up act and on her show on Comedy Central, The Sarah Silverman Program, Sarah Silverman is as crude and cruelly insensitive as any male comedian, but with a sexy, coquettish undertone— a Valley Village version of Brenda Patimkin, the Jewish-American Princess in Goodbye, Columbus. In one scene, Sarah calls her sister "gay," then apologizes to her two gay neighbors. "I don't mean gay like homosexual," she says sweetly. "I mean gay like retarded."'
