Sarah Palin, We Get It — You’re Obtuse

By Adele

Sarah Palin’s at it again, using her kids to keep herself in the public eye. This time it’s over David Letterman’s bad joke about a Palin daughter getting knocked up by baseball player Alex Rodriquez during the 7th inning.

Letterman thought 18-year-old Bristol was with Palin at a New York Yankees game recently, and that’s who he intended to lampoon. (Why?) But Palin was really with 14-year-old Willow.

The joke inadvertently hit the wrong target, and now Palin won’t shut up about it.

I’ve seen Letterman explain and apologize several times now. Palin even accepted his apology. But she still can’t help smearing the outrage around to include all females under 18 — even though Letterman explained very clearly that’s not who he meant.

Suddenly Palin, whose positions on most women’s issues would leave them all barefoot and pregnant, is their champion, and she’s loving every minute of it.

If Letterman can be faulted for anything, it’s for such a lousy joke, so off-base and topically outdated, it wasn’t even remotely funny.

As for Palin, she reminds us again she’s just another Republican who gets a wrong-headed idea and won’t let it go, even after all the facts come out.

But enough already!

    Adele, I imagine when you were writing this, your tail was back in the Palin fluff. I feel like she’s never gonna go away.

    Adele, you are right. Every time I see Palin, my fur stands on end. She keeps scratching and clawing to keep herself in the news, deluding herself that she has a prayer of running for president in 2012. The Republicans don’t even want her.

    Enough of the protest rallies, enough of “The View” sharpening their claws, enough of Todd calling Dave a dirty old man….

    It’s done, Dave told a bad joke based on some sketchy intelligence. He’s apologized and bent over backwards to clear his name.

    If anyone is to blame its the Palin media machine cranking out the hits to Dave’s blunder. Next time they maybe should think about keeping their collective legs together and Todd should load up the shotgun for the little pukes that come by and knock up his kids..

    Then maybe dirty old men won’t be cracking wise about their unwed daughters.

    Nuff Said… put this in the litter box where it belongs.

    Unkie Bob, even if Letterman had the right daughter, the joke was really stale. We don’t watch Letterman because he comes on past our beddy-bye, but it seemed too witless to have passed muster with anybody.

    Someone mentioned in another forum that the joke was really about A-Rod, because he apparently has a reputation for chasing the ladies.

    Palin’s making the most of it right now, but when all the other comedians see that they’ll have her hanging around their neck for 6 months if they breathe her name, maybe she’ll soon find NOBODY’S talking about her.

    That’ll force her to try something drastic, like hunting caribou naked with Matt Lauer for The Today Show.
