I guess many of you have heard about the ridiculous outrage over some jokes Letterman told about Sarah Palin.
If not – here’s a LINK to Dave’s response to Palin and Co. expressing their outrage in their usual style.
It seems to center around Dave joking that while in NY Palin would need to keep Elliot Spitzer (former governor caught with hookers) away from her daughter. After Palin and Rudy Giuliani and their posse went to Yankee Stadium Dave joked that Palin might be concerned about A Rod knocking up their daughter.
Just to be clear – he was referring to the daughter who has already been knocked up. The one that is 18 and the one that is endlessly being used by Mama Bear Killer to produce PSAs telling young people fiction about sex and life. That daughter. The one that has been trotted around like a show dog since day 1.
See virginal daughter. See outcome of our excellent parenting. Oops! See pregnant teen. See outcome of our value of life. See teen and boy will marry. Oops! See we lost the election. See baby’s Dad tossed to the curb. See daughter and next generation we will screw up do talk radio.
How the hell Dave’s questionable jokes turned into advocating rape of a 14 year old (a different daughter) and encouraging sexual abuse of children and …
It goes on and on.
If you check out the response I linked you will also be treated to tons of clips of all the Fox geniuses discussing this at length along with home grown videos from every corner of right wing crazy town.
Whether you like/agree with Letterman’s comedy and opinions or not, I can’t imagine anyone thinks he is the kind of person to advocate rape and child abuse.
It amazes me where Palin’s mind immediately goes. And this isn’t the first time she was the one to go to the dark and perverted place.
Of equal importance to Sarah were Dave’s jokes about her make-up. Makes sense to me. You joke about my child. And then my make-up!! – Now I’m pissed.
Personally I think ALL children of ALL public figures should be off limits. I’ll never forget news coverage of Alec Baldwin’s daughter, covered with a sheet, being carried into school by bodyguards as paparazzi shouted out to her “You father says your Mom is a whore.”
I find lots of comedy offensive – to some degree that is part of what comedy is – pushing the envelope, snarking, saying things that we’re all thinking.
I hate when Dave jokes about Hilary Clinton being masculine. I hate when he makes fun of fat women. Doesn’t mean he needs to be censored, taken off the air, or shot from a helicopter.
In a world full of museum shootings, starving children and wars blossoming into new wars this is BS.
So why am I even mentioning it?
Because Sarah Plain and Moronic went on to (again) spout off about how NY and CA are not part of America and how we don’t get the values real Americans are concerned with.
I AM SO SICK OF THIS TACTIC OF DIVIDING AMERICA.
Talk about Un-American. Then again, Mr. Palin knows a lot about Un-American activities. The governor doesn't fall far from the husband.
This ugly, ignorant, vile woman could care less about anything other than selling her book and trying her best to keep her overly made up face out there until 2012 so she can come back and spew more hate and lies.
I absolutely think Dave should leave her children alone.
They have enough problems.
