Hey, guess what? Palin has accepted Cranky Dave's apology. Can we move on now, too?

Why try? It's too early for the primaries. Even if the excuse is that she was rushed during the McCain campaign or not, who knows if she will get better in dealing with the media in the coming years? There are other candidates. What matters are the policies. The bigger fish to fry for Republicans is trying to be a REAL alternative to the democrats. If they are not you might as well have democrats all the way.

Doesn't matter, he offended the majority America on public TV, that's what the average liberal FYMer doesn't get.

Word up liberal FYM poster: Your values are not in line with America's.

Time will tell if this leads to Letterman's eventual demise.

Do you really think that the majority of America gives a shit? Really? You're being incredibly petty over a non-issue.

This thread has had a lot of silly posts.


This event is a big net plus for Palin.

And a net loss for everyone that jumped on her for no reason.

All she did was take her 14 year old to a baseball game.

Letterman said "The joke, really, in and of itself, can not be defended". ( I guess he did not see this thread)

Yes, you think that joking about rape and disparging women in misogynistic ways on public TV is ok, I presume?
Please correct me i'm wrong.

Yes, the majority of America is an ocean compared the fishbowl of FYM.

Context people.

I have to walk away from this thread right now, because I'm very close to saying something that would likely get me banned.

So have a nice day, diamond.

I have to say that I'm very jealous of these people - it must be really nice to have this much time on one's hands. It must be even nicer that this is such a huge political/public issue in their lives. I don't know what kind of utopia they live in, but wow, it must be fantastic that everything is so great and that they can now devote themselves fully to the hijinks of Alaskan hillbillies.

I wanna live there too.

But then he went on to parse his words, and poo-poo the situation, w Schafer chiming in- so it was insincere in it's totality and most people didn't like it.

It's as simple as ABC.

A. He never mentioned rape.

B. Why should elected official make a difference?

C. If all you have is making huge stretches and making exceptions for people then this speaks volumes of your objectivity.

BVS, please.

We all know that diamond doesn't tag decent people with names and therefore we can't pass judgment on his character. Especially public servants, he just loves Hillary!!!

I mean, thank God for the archives here, else we'd all be thinking that we're crazy while reading his self-righteous outrage here.

Oscar, how did you get any of this from my post?

I would say I'm baffled, but I'm really not...
