The sexualization of girls and women in the media is reaching new lows these days -- it is exploitative and has a negative effect on how all women and girls are perceived and how they view themselves. Letterman also joked about what he called Palin's "slutty flight attendant look" -- yet another example of how the media love to focus on a woman politician's appearance, especially as it relates to her sexual appeal to men. Someone of Letterman's stature, who appears on what used to be known as "the Tiffany Network" (CBS), should be above wallowing in the juvenile, sexist mud that other comedians and broadcasters seem to prefer.
Is this satire?
I did Letterman’s wife:
I never thought I’d see the day.
Thank you NOW!
When did hell freeze over?
If you wouldn’t have provided the link, I wouldn’t have believed it was real. Shocking.
Everyone write drudge to post this.
Huh? Is this another Letterman we're talking about or Dave, the perv?
Until they trashed Rush Limbaugh at the end of the article.
What does this have to do with abortion?
According to the National Weather Service, Hell just had a cold snap.
Wow, NOW was shamed into defending a conservative.
“When did hell freeze over?”
When Hillary lost in the primary. Remember, many of the women who supported Hillary felt betrayed by the DNC “good old boys” and switched their allegiance to Palin.
We need a Photoshopped phot of Dave’s head on the body of a trenchcoat-wearing pervoid.
Wow - I never thought I’d see the day.....amazing - I almost fell out of my chair reading this one...
A bj to BJC in the side office from the intern didn’t bother them !
Is this true? Knock me over with a feather...
Hell is freezing over ... surely it is the end of global warming.
Yep, I can believe that Letterman was referring to the “other” daughter who wasn’t anywhere near the subject matter of the joke...
Then again, maybe I don’t.
Still waiting for the ACLU to protect America’s Civil Rights.
These are nothing but liberal hackneyed groups put up to try and make people feel warm and fuzzy that they don’t have to do anything ... And the POW.
Wow. NOW and stopped clocks have something in common.
NOW is the mistress of ‘Mobile Gloming’ (word play on global warming; there’s nothing ‘warm’ about the harridans except their eternal destination): wait until an issue is clarified by polling, then speak out in the direction the polls lead.
NOW has to go back, what, 16 years to illustrate Republican hypocrisy on matter? That’s scraping.
When NOW gets it, you know it's really bad. Atta girls...you tell Letterman to take a hike.
Look - there’s nothing wrong with Letterman that a good old-fashioned pistol-whipping wouldn’t cure.
Wow.Letterman is a pig and should be fired.
Must say that I didn’t expect a comment from NOW. I do give them credit for addressing this.
Credit where credit is due. Thank you NOW for speaking out. I tried to contact them personally to thank them but they do not have contact information on the site. Nevertheless, such actions should be encouraged, not ridiculed.
Ah, “finger in the wind” sort of folks.
You didn’t expect them to be totally right, did you?
Afterall they are still NAGs
half his age ???? try 1/4th his age.
If I remember correctly, Rush aplogized for that by saying he was sorry...I need to look that up...but of course, they had to go and ruin it at the end. In a way, they are just like Letterman...they just can’t make the point without making a political point to go along with it. They are such children.
On that point, it's important to note that when Chelsea Clinton was 13 years old she was the target of numerous insults based on her appearance. Rush Limbaugh even referred to her as the "White House dog." NOW hopes that all the conservatives who are fired up about sexism in the media lately will join us in calling out sexism when it is directed at women who aren't professed conservatives.Of course NOW had to find some way to attack the right, even when it is their side that is once again behaving in poor taste. So they go all the way back to the early '90s, and morally equate calling a homely girl a "dog" with a hateful comment about raping a 14 year old girl in front of her mother.
‘Until they trashed Rush Limbaugh at the end of the article.’
Yep. They mentioned Rush, but not the famous SNL skit that included an unfortunate depiction of Chelsea. Oh well, it’s NOW. Take their announcement and run with it. As generic as it was, it’s still something.
Wow! I’m in shock. Wonder if they have new leadership or something?
Finally!!!! Now if the MSM will wake up and start reporting the truth about Obama.
Yes ... and you don’t want to be down wind from them. Trust me!
“NOW hopes that all the conservatives who are fired up about sexism in the media lately will join us in calling out sexism when it is directed at women who aren’t professed conservatives.”
WHERE IN THE HELL WERE YOU AT LAST YEAR WHEN PALIN AND HER DAUGHTERS WERE ATTACKED DAILY IN THE MEDIA! CONSERVATIVE WOMEN ARE ATTACKED CONSTANTLY BY YOU THUGS. I DON’T THINK CONSERVATIVES ARE THE ONES YOU NEED TO WAKE UP!
I’ll continue to ridicule them as they’ve logged four decades of hypocrisy , simply basing their polemics and actions on what serves a leftist agenda and not what’s best for women.
Not good Letterman to PO those dykes. Maybe you had just better retire.
Letterman is finished now that the NOW Feminazis are on his case. GOOD!
NOW officially has dove into the fray, willy-nilly.
This COULD mean that Letterman is toast.
Anyone remember what their reaction was to Clinton during his groping/Kathleen Willey/Juanita Broaddrick,Monica/oral office period?
Did NOW EVER voice concerns about Clinton’s degrading treatment of women?
17. How can I contact NOW?

You gotta be a detective to find it, though!
That's for a separate letter to Now (email@example.com). For this moment, however, it would certainly help if all FReepers would submit the brief form to CBS that NOW has up--and to put in the subject line your desire to see Letterman fired. In the body of your message, you can always remind CBS of its dwindling audience.

Read the article and thought to myself "shocking" in a good way, until I got to the last paragraph about Rush.
Now was trying to "morally equate" was exactly the same thought I had.
I seriously doubt the NOW hags even see it as complete hypocrisy
