I was simply wondering what she's doing knocking around New York (well, I know what she's doing, campaigning for '12 as if she has a prayer in hell) while Sean Parnell runs Alaska for her.

Letterman's comments were about the other daughter...the abstinence poster child, not the 14 year old.

Obama's children were attending school during the election and not being dragged around the country as props.

I don't really give much of a damn about what Letterman or any other late night comedian says...I don't watch them.

Uh...once again, his comments were about the abstinence poster girl, the one with that poor baby. Thank Heaven my son listened when I warned him about girls like that. I am also glad that Levi managed to chew his leg loose from that mess.

I don't watch Letterman but it's my understanding he's a comedian and not a politician.
Absolutely correct...when she went into politics, especially on the Federal level, she know full well what happens, her choice...I don't agree on going after the kids, but I have never liked Letterman, Rush turns my stomach and gives me a migraine to even try to listen to him, and certainly no longer even close to liking Palin with the choices she is making, and not for the state of Alaska...

Do you know who Seward was? She was invited by the people of a Town in Northern NY where Seward lived. Some of these folks are Republican, while others are Democrat, but still she was invited because of what Seaward did in relation to the State of Alaska.

No. Letterman was talking about one of her daughters, but had no idea that she was the wrong one.

Wrong. During the presidential campaign, Obama had Michelle and kids with him. They were all over the place. Right after the elections the talk was about which dog the children would have.

Yeah...life's rough in politics. Quite honestly I can understand part of the reason she took her children with her...the yellow press was digging through every garbage can in Whitesilla looking for dirt. I wouldn't have wanted my children to be exposed to them. But Todd wasn't working at the time and could have dealt with it.

But I don't believe that concern for the paparazzi swarming the valley was the reasoning behind the children being on the campaign trail with her....she wouldn't have dragged poor little Piper to that hockey game if she'd wanted to protect her.

Hell, if it were my kid missing so much school for any reason I'm sure the truant officer or whatever they're called these days would have had some questions for me.

Still, that doesn't excuse a comedian taking about sex with minors. Politics are politics, and the comment has nothing to do with such.

They were attending school. The Palin children were not. But education really doesn't seem to be a priority in that family, except when it comes to "abstinence education".

Don't worry, Ray. Palin may have lost the election for McCain but I'm sure you still have that tacky porn picture you posted of a real woman's breasts photochopped onto your queen; that should serve as a good enough consolation prize. Just be sure to keep hiding it from your wife if you don't want a frying pan upside your head.

I agree, as I said I have never liked the guy even way back, in my mind he has always been a puke...and now he has to figure out to save what career he has in the eyes of his 'fans.'
