“There is a God, who else could save an unborn female from having David Letterman as a father”.

What parts of “inappropriate” and “borderline sexual harassment” to you not understand?

“Even Don Imus knew when to leave, and keep his trap shut”

 

IMO – Governor Sarah Palin is not upset with the fact that her daughter was brought up in the in a joke.  The fact that David Letterman used “a 14/18 year old” as part of “a knock up” joke

is why the Governor is reeling, Whether it was her daughter, or anybody else’s, the fact that

an under age person of either gender should not be referenced in a joke that implies sex with a minor is acceptable fodder.

 

Yes one viewer on HLN, stated that Gov. Palin had “paraded them out” in the press.  I would have to say there is a big difference between campaign press opts and inappropriate jokes.

 

There will always be a double standard in the press between male and female candidate.  It has been observed that most of the female candidates, deal with more dissension from other female pundits, and voters than with there male counterparts.

 

I feel that as a person it is my responsibility not to contribute to any for of oppression, whether it is ethnic, or gender related.  To maintain a humane etiquette, that separates us from other life forms.

 

I think the fact that David letterman didn’t see it the first time, nor did he address it properly the second time, and then offering a joke with “Tina Fay” factor just adds to out of touch he is to this issue.  I am not big on voicing my spiritual opinions, but I think instances like this I must.

    It is sad that someone with some intelligence is so easily duped. The only thing Palin is ‘reeling’ about is this amazing opportunity dropped in her lap. She’s probably on her knees right now thanking God for David Letterman.
