Degeneres' rising political voice turns to Kern

by Jeremy Hooper

Picture 11-65Programming Note: We're told that on today's episode of "The Ellen Degeneres Show," the titular host plays the notorious Sally Kern audio and then attempts to personally call the Oklahoma State Rep. herself. It hasn't aired here in NY (not until 4PM), but we promise to get you audio/video ASAP.

We don't know what's gotten into the suddenly-more-outpoken Ellen, but we're totally digging it!

**UPDATE: Here's the video.

Is Ellen dancing less around her gayness?

Your thoughts

Ooh I'm so happy I DVR'd it. Can't wait to watch tonight!!!
In a way I'm glad she did that. Although she was probably very serious in tone I wonder if putting a humorous spin on Kern's comments will help make people realize how crazy the situation is? or will it make it seem trivial?

Well Ron, this writer would certainly say that dealing with these sorts of situations with irreverence is incredibly powerful. There's something to be said for looking nastiness in the eye and laughing in its face!
