ANALYSIS/OPINION:

Joke or no joke — Jimmy Kimmel has gone beyond acceptable discourse.

In a monologue during his recent ABC late-night talk show, Kimmel suggested that one way to deal with this whole Judge Brett Kavanaugh matter is to — his words — “cut that pesky penis of his off in front of everyone.”

Are you kidding me?

This is a Supreme Court nominee — a man who, until the Democrats got a hold of him, had a stellar work record, an unblemished career ascent, an impeccable track record of working with all types of judicial staffers, including women, including more liberal-minded Anthony Kennedy types.

And Kimmel, after running a clip from Kavanaugh’s Fox News interview in which he professed to be a virgin through high school and at least most of college, came up with this, as Breitbart noted: “Thank you for admitting that. He was a virgin until many years after. So if he doesn’t get to be on the Supreme Court, maybe he’ll be ‘The Bachelor.’ “



That was followed by this: “Hear me out on this. So Kavanaugh gets confirmed to the Supreme Court, OK? Well, in return we get to cut that pasky penis of his off in front of everyone.”

The crudeness of the left knows no bounds.

After all, this is the same brand of comedy that brought us Kathy Griffin and her oh-how-humorous bloody Donald Trump head.

But here’s a point the left — and right, when it applies — should keep in mind: Just because you can say something, doesn’t mean you should.

Just because Kimmel has a First Amendment freedom to speak as he wishes, doesn’t mean he should. A wise person knows when it’s best to keep silent.
