Sarah Palin appeared on the Today Show with Matt Lauer yesterday, and the Governor wasn’t in the mood for Matt’s crap. She gave far better than the sad, overmatched Lauer gave her:
Heh. Never bait the Mama Bear in her lair. She’ll defend her cubs viciously.
If you liked that, Michelle Malkin’s been eatingthe same Wheaties as Sarah Palin has:
Tell us, great comic genius, how tacking on another four years to the target daughter makes it funny? We unenlightened dim bulbs who live outside of Manhattan’s boundaries don’t get the joke.
Face it: David Letterman, late-night entertainer-turned-partisan hack/hitman has a deranged obsession with Sarah Palin and her family that has crossed into rank bigotry and hatred. If the CBS network cares about basic standards of decency on public airwaves and if it cares at all about bolstering its shrinking audience, the network honchos will get Letterman a therapist pronto.
Over the past year, Letterman has displayed his sexist, elitist stripes in jibe after jibe aimed at Palin. Taken cumulatively, Letterman’s mockery is about much more than expressing contempt for the popular GOP governor. It’s a handy device to deride a broad class of working-class and middle-class women he holds in contempt.
Ouch. Somebody get that man a butt-dressing, because she just chewed his butt clean off. Gotta love it!
And more and more people are jumping into this furball on the Governor’s side. The House Minority Leader in New York’s State Assembly is calling on CBS to fire Letterman:
New York State Assembly Minority Leader Brian Kolb, a Republican, is calling on the CEO of CBS to fire David Letterman for crude comments he made about Sarah Palin and her daughter.
In the letter to CBS chief Les Moonves, Kolb said he took Letterman to task for the “shockingly inappropriate” jokes. “As the proud father of a daughter, and as a husband, I wanted Mr. Moonves to hear from me directly about Mr. Letterman’s disparaging remarks,” Kolb said in a written statement.
“Firing Mr. Letterman would send a clear message that CBS will not tolerate any of its employees — even an established media figure like Mr. Letterman — making demeaning and degrading comments about women.”
And to add insult to injury, the oh-so-liberal National Organization for Women (NOW) hs finally decided to step up:
NEW YORK (AP) – The National Organization for Women has placed David Letterman in its “media hall of shame” for a joke about Alaska Governor Sarah Palin’s daughter.
The president of NOW, Kim Gandy, says, “Nobody should be making jokes about the sexual activities of teenagers.”
This is not a good thing. When the Libs start to turn on their fellow Libs, it gets ugly — fast. Something’s that almost as ugly — an FCC Complaint:
After the CBS late-night talk show host made some off-color jokes about the former vice presidential candidate’s daughter Monday night, Austinite Russell Korman, owner of Russell Korman’s Fine Jewelry & Watches, decided to file a complaint with the Federal Communications Commission.
“I really think it was intent to hurt a public figure by going through their children,” said Korman, who saw the jokes on Tuesday when they were rerun on cable news shows. “We didn’t do that, much, to the Bush kids and we didn’t do it much to Chelsea Clinton or Amy Carter, and we certainly shouldn’t do it to Sasha and Malia Obama. And we shouldn’t do it to a governor or senator or, really, anyone’s underage kids.”
He’s exactly right on that point, as I wrote on this subject previously, HERE. How far the FCC will go with it I don’t know and seriously doubt it will go very far. Still, it’s good for “panic value” with the CBS suits, if nothing else.
The heat is on, Dave. Hot enough for ya?
