it was ok

I learned she wet the bed until age 15 and that she's a Jew. She mentions again that she's a Jew. She then goes on to say she likes a work atmosphere that would cause anyone not working in porn to go to jail and that she's a Jew who wet the bed until she was 15 years old.

The first half and mid-word were good but I started losing patience and interest in the second half of her stuff. This is where she explains how she can't understand how someone might take offense at her spouting racial slurs because her slurs are spouted with a healthy dose of good intentions and irony. She believes she should have carte blanche because she "helped elect President Obama" by singlehandedly corralling the Jewish grandparents' vote with her internet video.

Soapbox: I find it interesting that she pulls so hard on her Jewishness yet does not practice in the least and seems to look down upon those who do attend Temple on a regular basis. She somewhat reminds me of the Spike Lee protagonists of the 1990s who espoused about Nubian Princes and Princesses, punctuated conversations with "the motherland," yet could not find Africa on a world map--with labeled continents.
