Bombshell Sofia Vergara shocks and disgusts libs on Emmys’ stage: ‘Her body, her choice’

Some of television at its finest.

When Emmy Awards organizers hit on the idea of using “Modern Family” star Sofia Vergara as a living, sexy foil to the bland boosterism of the annual “isn’t television awesome” segment of the program, it was pure broadcast genius.

It was smart, it was funny, it was sexy and it was effective.

Naturally, the libs didn’t like it.

Here’s a sampling: (Warning: some rough language ahead.)

And, dude, check this out.

Like, completely objectified!

Please.

Without Vergara, the minute-long speech at Monday’s ceremony by Bruce Rosenblum, CEO of the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences would have been 60-plus seconds of dead air, ending with the words “something compelling to watch.”

Instead, Vergara’s ingenue act made for compelling viewing indeed. With Vergara spinning slowly on a revolving platform – vamping and clearly enjoying herself (she has a better sense of humor than many of her fans, apparently) — it was entertainment with a message.

This guy didn’t get the message, but then he writes for the Huffington Post.

Sure.

Fortunately, the backlash against the liberal backlash wasn’t long in coming to the Twitter world. Here’s a sample of it, compliments of Twitchy.

(The cynical might note Dunham will never be invited onto a rotating platform for a sane audience.)

And how about this, from the objectified one herself:

In a nutshell, she said: “It means that somebody can be hot and also be funny and make fun of herself. I think it’s ridiculous that somebody started this —I know who she was—who has no sense of humor [and should] lighten up a little bit.”

Careful, Sofia, might make the sensitive guy sick to his stomach again.
