What? Media stuff calculated? Say it ain't so!

Everything after the initial joke was calculated, on both sides.

Palin had every right to take offense, calculating her responses or not.

That said, people are preparing to demonstrate outside of CBS Studios asking that Letterman be fired.

Fire David Letterman campaign takes root; protest planned over comment on Sarah Palin's daughter


Perhaps this is why Letterman decided to apologize, because of the growing backlash. The guy is bad news, and it's sad to see so many try and defend, dismiss what he said, or put it on Sarah Palin.

Your priorities are sorely skewed.

Lastly, in an online 72% think Letterman should step down.

^I think he should step down, but only because he's not funny. Craig Ferguson deserves the spotlight now.

Actually I take that back. If Craig is on at the same time as Conan again I will have to sacrifice one and I don't want to do that.

The guy apologizes on the air and people are still going to show up and protest that he be fired? People want him to "step down"? A talk-show host? I'd say they're the ones with the skewed priorities.

I'd wager these are the same people that take Bill O'Reilly to be a serious reporter. I heard him go on and on and on and on about this on Saturday.
Letterman is just a comedian with an opinion. His words don't speak for anybody but himself. Get. over. it.

I hope such a development will never be seen here in Germany. Given, some jokes go quite far, and you have all rights to complain, but do we really need to take it to the extremes every time we don't agree with a joke?

These people are just as bat shit crazy...

Why is the guy bad news? Because he made a joke about someone you like?

Where was all the outrage from you folks when people including O'Reilly made jokes about Jamie Lynn Spears got pregnant?

Come on hypocrites, where was the outrage?

Perhaps these people should consider finding useful work to do during the day.

You think a bad joke is grounds for a witch hunt and you think our priorities are skewed?? Spare me the patronizing bs, diamond.

And as we all know, online polls perfectly represent the opinion of the general public, so... bulletproof argument, dbs.

YouTube - David Letterman Sarah Palin Top 10 September 25, 2008

oh... the outrage. the humanity of it all.

she should get back on her jesus horse and go back to alaska and never return.

btw david letterman was an ardent supporter of rudy giuliani, who appeared on his show 28 times.

but i guess rudy's not a real republican because he likes the gays and the baby killers, so that doesn't matter.

death to liberals!!

utterly pathetic.

and these are the same people who wail about "political correctness" and tear their hair out at organizations like GLAAD.

So much for the right to free speech.

But go ahead and give a crazy old Nazi a gun.

Well I've been taught one thing this week. The reason the "real" conservatives aren't coming in here and defending Palin in any real way is they're scared. It's out of fear. They fear we are right. They fear it was just a joke and that freedom of speech defends that joke. They fear that Palin just might not be as informed as they once hoped. They fear.

Come on hypocrites, where was the outrage?
A) He joked about rape inolving a public servant's child.
B) Jamie Spears isn't even an elected official so it's not the same thing, but still wrong.
C) If one's only denfese is to tag decent people with names, this speaks volumes about one's character.

It's as simple as ABC.

Yes, when joking about rape and it's an elected officials child -yes.

It's apparent our values are different.
