Personally, I could care less what the useless NAGS have to say. Where have they been over the many years when conservative women have been attacked by the left. I guess even they couldn’t ignore joking about the raping of a young girl.

For the record, Rush did not compare Chelsie to a dog and even if he did, what is sexist about that? My dogs are quite cute. I watched said show and he was comparing what was in at the White House with Clinton and what was out with Bush. A picture of the Bush’s dog, Millie was shown and then a picture of the Clinton’s cat Socks was supposed to be shown. It appears somebody on the staff decided it would be funny to put Chelsie’s picture up instead. I believe Rush apologized and the staffer was fired.

The two things do not even compare.

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> 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 think they may have just woken up.

They still have the dig about conservatives in at the back end, BUT THIS IS A FIRST FOR THEM.

They finally defended a conservative woman.

It took a YEAR of attacks, but even they had trouble with these comments.

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?

No, they never did. I do remember one of their minions saying she'd even give Clinton a BJ as long as he kept abortion legal! The number ONE reason NOW even exists. Let's be honest.

LOL. The NOW nags had to get a dig into conservatives and Rush Limbaugh in particular.

Sorry, nags, we don’t need you.

It is kinda funny to see them slamming letterdork, though.

Too little, too late and they got snarky at the end. They must really be feeling heat to actually stand up for a principal that should have been front and center throughout the Clinton Years.

They provide a link to Les Moonves to let him know how you feel. You send the email right from their site.
I sent him a blistering note.
Yes, at the end they showed their leftist bias but still are doing something that needs to be done in defense of Willow and her sister.

It’s interesting then that the jokes are considered offensive to them (they are) but they couldn’t find it in themselves to say anything about groping, rape, or degrading oral sex slavery with an intern in the Clinton White House. Maybe they could issue a clarification.

I enjoyed that. I think I could have put on such a production, but I would have had to say, “I know the guy that did Letterman’s wife”. LOL

My God man, have you seen her photos... nobody gets that drunk anymore. LOL

But still... nice job.

I was watching Limbaugh’s TV show when he did the Chelsea Clinton dog joke. It wasn’t funny and it made me rather sour on the guy. Love his politics, love his leadership, love his talent, but that stupid joke cost him a lot of moral authority and not just with liberals.

Remember, many of the women who supported Hillary felt betrayed by the DNC “good old boys” and switched their allegiance to Palin.

The sexualization of girls and women in the media is reaching new lows these days

Only "these days" ??? Where has NOW been all "these decades" ??? And where were they when they cast all their eggs (figuratively) into the leftist basket which includes the leftist 'media'?

-- 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

WOW! Hell surely *has* frozen over! Otherwise, its never too late to repent, NOW .... the only question is, what took ya so long ???

NOW cares about the rights of women as much as Dave Letterman does.

Until they castigate Bill Clinton what they say is meaningless.

There's an ulterior motive for this, and it has nothing to do with caring about Sarah or Willow Palin.

___________________________________________

From NewsBusters.org, June 9, 2009...

Seven months after Election Day, and the attacks on Sarah Palin keep coming.

On Monday, CBS's David Letterman on the "Late Show" shamelessly went after the Alaska governor and her family during his opening monologue, as well as in his "Top Ten" list.

Top Ten Highlights Of Sarah Palin's Trip To New York

10. Visited New York landmarks she normally only sees from Alaska

9. Laughed at all the crazy-looking foreigners entering the U.N.

8. Made moose jerky on Rachael Ray

7. Keyed Tina Fey's car

6. After a wink and a nod, ended up with a kilo of crack

5. Made coat out of New York City rat pelts

4. Sat in for Kelly Ripa. Regis couldn't tell the difference.

3. Finally met one of those Jewish people Mel Gibson's always talking about

2. Bought makeup from Bloomingdale's to update her "slutty flight attendant" look

1. Especially enjoyed not appearing on Letterman

"One awkward moment for Sarah Palin at the Yankee game, during the seventh inning, her daughter was knocked-up by Alex Rodriguez."

Wow, NOW was shamed into defending a conservative.

In my world, NOW has no shame. This was a simple act to protect their constituency from realizing their political agenda. Dave's audience is NOWs constituency. NOW is upset with Dave for the exposure and acted out of pure political calculation. OR I could be completely wrong.

Here's an explantion of what went down....Franken’s Rush/Chelsea lie . Regardless of how it appeared or was explained later....the one thing I remember (w/in the last several years) is that Rush apologized to Hillary Clinton, in person, for a slight/mistake that he felt was wrong. Until today, I had no idea what it was about. He manned up.
