Y'all, I just reported that Wayne idiot, and if enough of you do it, he will be removed. So do it!
As for this Letterman/Palin business, I want to put everything into perspective here.
What Letterman said was wrong. First, flight attendants don't dress slutty. Second, neither does Palin. Many of the women who go on the David Letterman show do dress slutty (can you say CHER? BRITNEY?) So he was out of line. That established...
Palin's daughters look quite a bit alike, especially when they're sitting down. I have no doubt that Letterman was referring to Bristol, the older daughter, rather than Willow, who was actually at the game. Letterman thought the 19-year old was at the game, not the 14-year old. Palin's carrying on about statutory rape is ridiculous. She should have taken Letterman's explanation for what it was worth, clearly stated her opinion on the matter one time, and then let it go.
Did Letterman actually apologize? No. Did he admit the joke was in poor taste? Yes. Will that stop Letterman from making more jokes in poor taste? No. Is Palin's dragging this whole incident out actually making it worse for her daughter? Yes. Should Letterman have made comments about either of her daughters? No. Did Alex Rodriguez have this comming? Yes. Should it have been said about him? No.
You see, it is what it is. David Letterman is not the first person to say rude things about a politician he doesn't like, but he crossed the line when he brought up her kids like that--the same way that jerk "Wayne" down below did (I hope he's been removed by now so no one else has to read his remarks). Palin, in my opinion, should have left her kids off the stage during the campaign, the way Obama pretty much did. But that doesn't mean Letterman had the right to say what he said.
The main thing that irks me is that if, say, Ann Coulter or Rush Limbaugh had said the same thing about Obama's daughters, the media would have been in a serious uproar. When the tables are turned, well...
I do like Palin, for the record. But she can shut up now.
