    So apparently the Semi-Pro-Thumb-Twiddler-in-Chief-Heir-Apparent Sarah Palin has absolutely nothing else to do but launch a time-wasting campaign against David Letterman.

    Someone from her bat-shit crazy side of the fracking galaxy made a website:
    http://firedavidletterman.com/

    Public civility now puts Dave in the uncomfortable position of asking Sarah Palin if, in fact, she is accusing him of endorsing child rape. He's already apologized more than once, on his own show. He even invited her on the show.

    The next step is to tar him like Don Imus who was fired.

    Is this really the country we live in? The problem is David Letterman LOVES this kind of attention and so does THE NETWORK, lol! Ratings go through the fucking roof if they can jack the ad rates but it is a depression so advertisers' pockets aren't quite as deep previously.

    Hmmm....Stay tuned!

    It's sad when we treat comedians like News Anchors.

    Probably because these same people think Fox is a legitimate NEWS program.


    If our society can not tell that difference between a satirical comedic monologue and serious political commentary, then we are all in trouble.

    Good lord. Even some of the Republicans pundits are saying that she doesn't know when to stop. She won, he apologized. Now she's snatching defeat from the jaws of victory. Once again, not the most shining jewel in the Republican crown. I think they finally realized that the folksy deep red base she appeals to are the only ones she appeals to and they will always vote Republican anyway. She is completely and utterly useless to them. The only votes she gets are votes they already have a lock on.

    Well, in a way, David Letterman wants the publicity. This way nobody is talking about Conan O'brien and people will be watching Letterman to see what might happen next.

    Well I don't watch Lettermen just b/c I usually don't like his humor and when I heard the joke(and not on Fox)I knew it would be trobule.The first"apalogy"solded like a continuation of the joke.But for the most part Palin acted about the same as any mother/parent would but the end of her responce to the invite"I don't think it would be wise tolet him around Willow"was her going too far.Now when asked about it on today show she would'nt clearly state what she ment by it.If she was such a savy polititon she could've said "I was just joking,I was'nt trying to implay anything.You did'nt think it was funny?"and give him some guff back but alass she is'nt that savy darn.icon_twisted.gif

    I'd be curious to hear what Alex Rodrigues has to say. Will he file a lawsuit for character defamation? Isn't he a victim too, according to Palin's logic?

    Well Rush is a hypocrite and just plain intentionally mean. Did he ever apologize for making fun of Michael J. Fox?

    Yeah, I understand Conan's ratings are tanking, just when he began his new hosting stint at the Tonight Show. He was doing OK until this blew up.

    Palin pulled the same outraged victim stunt a few times during the Presidential campaign. She seems to be a 1-trick pony. (OMG, will I have to issue a public apology for saying that?)

    More fake outrage. When Rush attacked Chelsea Clinton, you people said "Lighten up, it was only a joke."
    So you can fuck off now.


    McCain for that matter. Weren't we told to shut up and quit whining when he made a comment about Chelsea's appearance and Janet Reno being her father? It's only okay when Republicans make jokes about people's kids.

    No because in her mind, gays don't exist.

    You people? Don't speak for my own opinion old man.

    I see it as a joke yes, and I saw Rush's joke as a joke. However, I think it's completely within Palin's and Clinton's rights to protect and defend their children.

    critique from "an athletic, intelligent, republican, all-American guy"

    Obviously being all-American does not include basic courtesy.

    OMG!!!!

    David Letterman defamed a young woman

    I daresay Sir .... You are a CAD!


    It was Rush Limbaugh who ridiculed Chelsea Clinton, then 13, as the "White House dog

    McCain's 1998 joke suggesting that Chelsea Clinton was ugly and that Janet Reno and Hillary Clinton were lesbians.
    "Why is Chelsea Clinton so ugly?" McCain said at a GOP fund-raiser in Washington. "Because Janet Reno is her father."

    That video bugs me so much! I am a mass communications student and have learned about slander and libel and what those people are saying and writing falls in that.

    These people need to get lives, what is with people focusing on stupid shit like this when we have bigger issues. We are going through the same thing in Oregon with the Portland mayor. I say get a f***ing life people and worry about more important things.
