Sarah Palin and David Letterman

When I first heard of David Letterman's joke about Sarah Palin's daughter, saying that she could have been knocked up by some baseball player, I thought it was in very poor taste and not a joke at all. Then he backtracked and apologized and said his joke was indeed in bad taste and said that joke was about Palin's 18 years old daughter. At that point a good mother and good politician should have backed off, but apparently Sarah Palin is neither. She keeps dragging her 14 years old daughter into the controversy and keeps going, and going and going and going.

Palin was all over the media, on CNN, NBC and other news outlets, talking about it and trying to gather political capital on the back of her 14 years old daughter. No one has told Palin when to shut up. Then of course a reporter asked her about Obama and she basically said he sucks and that it is weakness to cut defence spending, that Alaska could be attacked by North Korea and that she needs to build a bigger missile defence in Alaska. So on and so forth. She may be able to run a small state (and even there her job approval numbers are dropping) but can she really lead a party and a country?

  1. Hey Le Daro,... what software do you use to edit and create you animated gifs?

  2. Zorpheous, you want me to give away my trade secrets ;) Ok it is Photosuite 6. It is a 5-6 years old version. I am sure newer versions are available. And Animated GIF Maker.

    By the way I cannot leave a comment on your blog. Every time I try to post a commnet I get "this is spam" message.

  3. Sarah palin reminds us that women and America have a long way to go before we see some serious improvements, especially in thought processes and ind control.
    Letterman was off on this nd really should have stayed away from the subject.

  4. Letterman is a deranged slob- and his stale schtick's about as funny as a train wreck.

    If Sarah Palin is SO silly and irrelevant, why the obsession? Clearly the Left noted her appeal, and are out to eliminate the threat- it’s not like it’s not obvious.

    And she’s been highly successful in life while ignoring the left-wing feminist model… this helps to explain the extra dose of venom in the attacks.

    Go get em, Sarah- and don’t mind the press, nobody will be listening to them anymore after the pending Obamamania implosion-

  5. R-R-R, I agree with you that Letterman was not funny in this particular case. I did find his "joke" on Palin's daughter not funny at all.

    "If Sarah Palin is SO silly and irrelevant, why the obsession?" because she does provide a lot of comic relief. Remember Saturday Night episodes during election. I did find them very funny. Her seeing USSR from her house was hillarious.
    She candidate in 2012? Slim chance.

  6. "USSR" I meant Russia -former USSR.

  7. "this is spam"

    I don't think I have any spam controls on my blog, but I will check it out,...

    you're in the holoscan comment section right? Not a blogger comment section?

  8. Yes, I am on holoscan section. But that is ok,Zorpheous. I do check your posts and know what you're up to ;)
