Letterman Makes Another Sex "Joke" About Willow Palin; UPDATE: Statement from the Palins
Conservatives 4 Palin ^ | Wednesday, June 10, 2009 | Videmus Omnia

Posted on 06/10/2009 9:09:34 AM PDT by curth

UPDATE by RAM: The following statements were issued by Gov. Palin and Alaska's First Gentleman about Letterman's treatment of their 14-year-old daughter:

"Any 'jokes' about raping my 14-year-old are despicable. Alaskans know it and I believe the rest of the world knows it, too."

- Todd Palin

"Concerning Letterman's comments about my young daughter (and I doubt he'd ever dare make such comments about anyone else's daughter): 'Laughter incited by sexually-perverted comments made by a 62-year-old male celebrity aimed at a 14-year-old girl is not only disgusting, but it reminds us some Hollywood/NY entertainers have a long way to go in understanding what the rest of America understands - that acceptance of inappropriate sexual comments about an underage girl, who could be anyone's daughter, contribute to the atrociously high rate of sexual exploitation of minors by older men who use and abuse others.'"

- Governor Sarah Palin

I know there is a reason to be upset, but, I also read a quote a few days ago that said “ those who anger you , control you “ ..... I know it's easier said than done....

There is another old saying, "Those that don't cause you to get angry when you have right on your side, will walk all over your a** like it is a doormat!". Fighting back is the only way to handle these a**hats. President Bush ruined his 8 years in office and caused his approval rating to drop like a rock because he took all the crap and never fought back, therefore leading many to believe all the lies about him were true.

While I do agree that pressuring their sponsors is fine, with the exception of ebay, I really don't patronize any of the advertisers on that list anyway. If you want to organize a Sharpton/Jackson-esque mass boycott, I'll be happy to help. But that doesn't stop me from engaging the individuals in the terms they can best understand.

Knowing that liberals are generally soft, weak, little herd animals, and are incapable of elevating themselves above their florid, base-instincts, I'm more than willing to “stoop” to their level to take them on.

I can more than hold my own with anyone, on their terms or mine. It's just a lot more fun to destroy them on their own turf.

Besides, I love a good pig fight. Nothing wrong with getting one’s hands dirty.

With all the character assassination done by the left as soon as Sarah appeared on the ticket, they were savvy enough to leave Willow pretty much alone. I was very worried that at her age the impact would be devastating; they were smart enough to realize the public would be rightfully outraged. There was an unmarked line there and everyone mercifully acknowledged it - until now.

Letterman is pure scum to do this. What is it, sweeps week? Is Conan that much of a threat? Plenty of other shock jocks were taken off the air for less.

I think (and you said this already) that everyone has something they can do. I personally am not good at confronting people, but I can do other things. :)

***you wrote"“I permit no man to narrow and degrade my soul by making me hate him.” — Booker T. Washington

None can make you hate, that is a choice you make....Hate and love are both strong emotions, indifference is the opposite of hate and love....

I permit no one to dictate my reaction to anything. that is why I am hard to insult....an "insult" is just one persons opinion..

But scripture also says there is a time to love and a time to hate...

I have found that hate leads to bitterness and bitterness really sucks. Fell into that once as a young woman until I learned how to get rid of it..Since then I have not experienced hating anyone, but have been indifferent many times....(hope this doesn't sound too convoluted)

“There are three people who are my friend. The person who loves me, the
person who hates me, and the person who is indifferent to me. The
person who loves me teaches me tenderness. The person who hates me
teaches me caution. And the person who is indifferent to me teaches me
self-reliance.”

Gee, even if Letterman is evil enough to joke about the sexual assault of a 14 year old girl, you'd think that he wouldn't do it because he was afraid that people who were offended would go to his online Ticket Request Page http://lateshow.cbs.com/latenight/lateshow/show_info/tickets/form/ and enter the lottery for tickets to his show, just so that they could say, "Uh, no thanks." when Dave's folks called to say they had won. In fact, if a person was really made at ole Dave, they could accept the tickets, then not show up.

But, I'm sure Dave knows show business better than me. That is why he is rich and famous.

Letterman Makes Another Sex "Joke" About Willow Palin...

Letterman made another sex 'crack' about Willion Palin. Calling it a joke implies it was funny.

“Letterman had a long-term relationship with former head writer and producer on Late Night, Merrill Markoe. In fact, Markoe was the mind behind several Late Night staples, such as “Stupid Pet/Human Tricks”.”

When they broke up, he stopped being funny...

what would really be good is if we were able to get someone in every night and just boo everything he says.

I think Sarah and Todd’s responses were just perfect. They didn’t sound like loud, angry parents. There was certainly an edge to their comments, but they also made the larger point about just how out of touch popular entertainment is with the average person in this country.

I dropped cable a few months ago ... couldn’t justify paying all that money to watch BHO/Nancy and their syncophants in the media. Even Fox was making me sick. Life has been so peaceful since. (come football season, I may have to reconsider).
