This from someone who railed for 3 days on someone who criticized Obama?

I am not a Palin fan, and would not vote for her. Regardless, the joke was inappropriate and disgusting. The fact that you do not see what was wrong with the comments are more disturbing to me than the actual joke.

No, his jokes are not her responsibility. He said what he said. She's chosen to make a big production out of it.

And I don't think he was joking about the 14-year-old. He was joking about the 18-year-old, from what I understand. He didn't know it was the 14-year-old who attended the baseball game.

My god, this is stupid, but at the same time, I'm amused by the face that so many people are hyperventilating over it.

Why would she need to? Even articles in decidedly liberal papers are being shouted down for demonizing Palin on this issue. Like I said in another thread, people are beginning to connect-the-dots.

The "hay" Palin is making will not win her the White House - But it will expose the fascist elements of the Left for what they truly are.

The 18 year wasn't in New York, so your attempt to defend the rape joke fail once again.

How sad I never thought I would have to say some one was defending a rape joke. Show we really do have sick pathetic people in the country.

Iheard him apologize FOR WHAT HE SAID, not what you interpreted him to say
