the letterman thing

On Monday's "Late Show with David Letterman," the comedian came out swinging, saying, "One awkward moment for Sarah Palin at the Yankee game. During the seventh inning, her daughter was knocked up by Alex Rodriguez!"
Sarah Palin response was...
"Laughter incited by sexually perverted comments made by a 62-year-old male celebrity aimed at a 14-year-old girl is .. disgusting."

And Letterman has not really apologized.

On the one hand I don't think it helps to make a big deal about this, on the other hand I hope it bites Letterman in the face! If he said anything like that about Obamas daughters people would be trying to kill him! It just goes to show you what a double standard there is. You get killed for insulting the children of Democrats but higher ratings for attacking the kids of a Republican. I wish they would fire Letterman. He isn't funny anymore, he is a bitter sick old man. My daughter Nicole is only 15 years old, if someone said something like that about her on National TV I would not be so calm! If he doesn’t really apologize, they should fire him!!!

There are a lot of double standards in the media and it all has to do with what is popular in the media. It's very sad very sad.

I completely agree with you Amy. This kind of thing is happening all the time (double standard). Christians are being attacked almost daily for one thing or another. I have been following the Miss Calif. Carie Pajean case as well and I really do appreciate her firm stand for trad. marriage.
