So, stiffnecked, are you admitting here that you are akin to these vile fellows?
Your obviously not paying close attention here are you? Did I say anything about killing anyone? Tonya Harding and her boyfriend did a "whack job" on Nancy Kerrigan. Taking out a knee cap isn't the same thing as a beheading in a public square.

Like I said, insult MY daugthers and you should be prepared to pay the price. There is no comedy in insulting my daughters or anyone else's.

Nothing that Letterman said rose to the level of comedy. It wasn't funny, it had no punch line. I'm beginning to think all liberals such as yourself have no sense of decency.

Rush apoligized for it publicly and said he crossed the line...

Nothing preventing Letterman from doing the same...

I used to watch his show all the time and hardly ever these days... just doesn't have the same appeal.

I never heard that Bristol was sleeping around...

People make mistakes and that's life... all you can do is make the best of it.

Who knows if Letterman even wrote the joke; most of them have staff writers. I quit watching him a long time ago--too frat boy but hell, he's a comedian.
Do Governors ever resign when answering a higher calling as Governor Bill Clinton put it so eloquently...

You tell us. Your earlier post(s) gave the impression that you would not hesitate to engage in unlawful and violent behavior in the event of someone saying something to your daughter that you seemed offensive. I showed you in several rejoinders that your approach was not any different than the Islamofascists who want to destroy America and Americans. Here is your original posting -

This is a red herring. Offensive speech is permitted in our country. It is what makes this the greatest country on earth. It is here that people can say things without facing the penalty of having their heads or limbs cut off. I would like it to remain that way. If someone were to say something offensive about your daughter, I will offer you my support and my condemnation of the perpetrator, with the gentle advice to ignore the scumbag. But I would never ever support you in any act of violence or towards anything that you might want to do that would in any way or form intimidate or physically harm the perpetrator.

You would think that would be the case... but there are many that have lost a career based on speech...

Andy Rooney was put on leave when he made a comment that was found offensive...

Didn't Ron Mar leave network TV for something he said on Politically Incorrect?

My friend, I would never ask you for your support in any endeavor I wish to undertake. Trust me, when we go out to the mine this year to prospect for gold you won't be getting an invitation to tag along.

Your now free to go back to whatever you autographer seekers do. I'm guessing your getting ready to pop some corn and get your daily dose of TMZ....

I wonder how much the governor's latest trip cost the state...she sure is sticking her mug in the limelight at every possible chance.

There was no apology of any kind. All he did was deny that he did anything wrong and he used the the jokes again to garner more laughs, by being sacastic ....he even makes fun of Todd, as he reads the statement from them.

But these are the exceptions that prove the rule. America has been overwhelmingly tolerant of free speech and free expression.
