The sad aspect of Podunk Palin is that she is all that the Republicans/Conservatives/Regressives/Klan/Clueless have in a desperate attempt to keep themselves in the public eye. Let's face it, Republicans stink. Their policies stink. Their ideology stinks. Their political instincts suck. Podunk Palin is petty, superficially pretty, and irrelevent. This doesn't change that. Republicans are pathetic.

Go Letterman!

Sure, and when I joke about your children being molested, it will be your fault.

Palin church burning - 'hate crime' virtually ignored? (OneNewsNow.com)

Yeah, I don't actually think they have "Liberal Freaks" in Wasilla.
Or in the entire state of Alaska, probably.
If they did, maybe it would be a cooler place and more than a couple of hundred people would want to live there.

I actually said, during the campaign, that she would be d***** if she did and d***** if she didn't regarding her kids, and that therefore she should do whatever she (and they in the case of the older ones) wanted to do. You can look up my posts if you don't believe me. I will say, she made some choices I would not have made.

I also think that women candidates get more attention paid to their looks, their clothes, and their parenting than men do. This is bi-partisan. Many "liberal" women jouralists defended her clothe shopping. Slate magazine had an excellent article about this at the time.

You go girl, Palin showed how she can handle her self and I hope Letterman's ratings will drop so he will find out what he really did.


Where is the out cry for him being fired...like with Imus...well Rep. are different we just want the ratings to take care of it!
celebrities (& I'm referring to all people who have "high-profile" jobs- politicians as well as movie stars) who choose to live their lives "in the spotlight," sucking up publicity whenever & wherever they can, should see it in terms of getting what they set themselves up for when somebody has the guts to "tell it like it is."

I observe the way the repubs keep the story going, emphasising it, embellishing it, Sara advertising it...


Wouldn't you think that if this joke was so damaging that they WOULDN'T want a lot of publicity?????????

That they WOULD think of the children ????




Nooooooo, they are too selfish, greedy, grasping....if the repubs(Sara) feel it'll aid their cause/campaign they(she) will keep it going forever despite what it may do to her children...OBVIOUSLY!!

Or they could try to act like the libs, ignore it and pretend what was said meant something else. After all, if you ignore it long enough it will go away, and thus can be claimed to have never happened.
