David Letterman has become a poster child for the spiteful, vicious, hateful, and just plain mean liberals who make up the political left in this country. I do not buy the “he is just a comedian” defense of what Letterman said, because he hides behind the veil of comedy to attack a fine woman and her young daughter, for no other reason then he disagrees with her political views.

Quote:
“What a commentary there,” Palin said of the comment during an interview on conservative host John Ziegler’s Los Angeles-based radio show “That’s pretty pathetic, good ole David Letterman.”

In a follow up to Palin’s weekend trip to New York, Letterman’s “Top Ten” list on Monday featured “highlights of Sarah Palin’s trip to New York.” Number two on the list was “bought makeup at Bloomingdale’s to update her ‘slutty flight attendant’ look.”

Since the above link is from the Politico, you did not get the full story of how disgusting Letterman was, look at the video here. Sarah Palin was with her 13 or 14 year old daughter Willow, who was born in 1995, so Letterman is making a joke about the rape of a young girl. Whatever happened to the "Chelsea Clinton Rule", I guess it does not apply to the children of republicans.

The Greenroom Forum Archive It Might Not Be the Best Idea for David Letterman to Joke About Underage Girls Being Raped

I’m waiting for the liberals to defend Letterman’s disgusting joke, and help solidify my opinion of liberals, as mean spirited, vindictive, small-minded and hypocritical, partisan hacks.

What? He was talking about Sarah Palin's "slutty flight attendant look".

Completely right on btw!

Okay, "Her daughter was knocked up by Alex Rodriguez". Well, ugly and in bad taste, but it's a pretty thin news day in th eright wing blogosphere to try to make a big deal of this.

Are they trying to direct attention away from the Holocaust Museum shootings?

What was the rape joke? I can't pull up that link... the slutty flight attendant joke was thoroughly appropriate.

Well, you're out of luck. Although I heard nothing about "rape", that was still an inappropriate joke.
Minor children of politicians should always be off limits from politics, period. Adult children of politicians should remain off limits as well unless they begin actively participating in politics.

Oh my god. This thread is based on nothing but someone's imagination. What a waste of bytes.

How about bastard children -- like Letterman's?

Alex Rodriguez has sex with people he shouldn't (cheated on his wife), while Sarah Palin's teenage daughter got pregnant. He's a comedian - he worked both of these into a joke. It was somewhat funny, and I chuckled a little bit.

This joke wasn't disgusting, mean spirited, vindictive, small-minded, hypocritical, etc. Like most of what Letterman says, it was mildly funny.

I completely agree. Now I wonder if Lettermen will apologize for this (hopefully) lapse of judgement on his part or will he make a 'retarded' joke next for the baby?
