I don't attack or mock the families of politicians, I leave that to the Sarahphobes.

I wouldn't disagree, but does that justify a prominent liberal-leaning talk show host referring to the daughter of a conservative politician as a hooker?

It's the left's silence on some issues that causes some of us to suspect some of them are moral hypocrites. It's true that some on the Christian right are also moral hypocrites, but we hear all the time on FYM about the right's hypocrisy, not so much about the left's.

I'm sure you could come up with some "reasons" why her family doesn't deserve to be represented in the Constitution she's going to swear to uphold.

Preachers vs Talk show hosts...


Wow, you really love beating this dead horse don't you?

I don't see my views on this as hypocritical. As I said at the time, I hold politicians and entertainers to different standards of behaviour. If a politician had said the same thing, I would have thought it incredibly crass and distasteful. A talk show host/comedian saying the same thing? Whatever. It comes with the territory.

Btw, he didn't call her a hooker, he implied that a famously womanizing athlete had sex with her, intending it to mean the older daughter, not realizing that it was the younger one on the trip.

Forget about it, we tried explaining this at the time of the incident... he chose to ignore the facts.

I simply commented on what I saw. And I had no issues with Letterman up until this, I used to find his show very funny.

I just don't understand how it's hypocritical to not get all up in arms about what a comedian/entertainer says during the course of a comedy monologue. If it were a politician, sure. A mainstream news or otherwise serious journalist? Yeah, that too. But not taking a comedian seriously makes me a hypocrite? Honestly?

I don't attack or mock families of politicians who don't try to use their families as political pawns.

I don't think I've ever attacked or mocked her family. There's plenty enough negative to say about her alone to have to resort to that.

but whenever you say something about Palin, you say it about her entire family, and twice about Trigg!!!

because conservatives have no arguments, just tactics.

Tragically, the tactics of scorched-earth policies of personal destruction have no political affiliation. It is not enough for winners to succeed; all others must have their faces splashed across tabloids with only rumors and conjecture as their base. GOP, DNC... in the immortal words of Morgan Freeman from "Shawshank," "Same shit, different day."

And what does any of this have to do with the Houston mayor?

she has civil rights denied to her, unlike Sarah Palin.

as ever, it was INDY who brought up Our Poor Sarah's evil mistreatment by a press that isn't properly deferential.
