Milbank's suggestion for Hillary: 'Mad Bitch' beer

July 31, 2009

Update: The Washington Post has pulled the "Mouthpiece Theater" video. The Washington Post removed the video from its Web site. Kris Coratti, Director of Communications at the Post said, "The video was a satirical piece that lampooned people of all stripes. There was a section of the video that went too far, so we have removed the piece from our website."

But Media Matters cleverly archived a copy, now embedded below.

The Washington Post's Dana Milbank is already getting some heat for the latest edition of "Mouthpiece Theater," his online feature with colleague Chris Cillizza.

In the "Ménage à Stella Artois" episode -- panned by the Columbia Journalism Review's blog -- the Post reporters discuss the "beer summit," offering suggestions on what beers leading political figures would probably drink.

While Milbank and Cillizza mock figures on both sides of the aisle their beer suggestion for the Secretary of State could prompt charges of sexism.

When Hillary Clinton's face is on the screen, while Milbank says, "we won't tell you who's getting a bottle of 'Mad Bitch' beer."
