Few things that come out of the ideological crazed super far left (not your average everyday liberals, but the real coo coo coco puffs) has anything to do with reason. But it is one thing to be irrational about issues, and quite another to be irrational about a person. Public figures have always been the butt of jokes, especially those who put themselves out there seeking attention. Politicians are no exception. Neither is Sarah Palin.
The media is free to make fun of her, by all means do so. But the media is unfortunately a part of the same crazed far left that I mentioned before. And instead of making fun of Sarah within reason, they bring her family into it. Not her husband, a grown man who could certainly handle a pun, but her kids. Her children who, some of which are just learning how to be adults; her kids who did not desire to be the items of ridicule on late night TV. But not only did they go after her kids, as it has always been from her initial entrance onto the national stage, it has become only increasingly cruel and incredibly unfunny.
Just the other evening David Letterman decided tact was of course not needed. It was a long night of dumping on Sarah but then he took it to a new low by saying this …. “One awkward moment though during the game, maybe you heard about it, maybe you saw it on one of the highlight reels. One awkward moment for Sarah Palin at the Yankee game, during the seventh inning, her daughter was knocked-up by Alex Rodriguez.”
Wow, Letterman is one classy guy.
The Palin Camp then released these two statements.
“Any ‘jokes’ about raping my 14-year-old are despicable. Alaskans know it and I believe the rest of the world knows it, too.”
- Todd Palin
“Concerning Letterman’s comments about my young daughter (and I doubt he’d ever dare make such comments about anyone else’s daughter): ‘Laughter incited by sexually-perverted comments made by a 62-year-old male celebrity aimed at a 14-year-old girl is not only disgusting, but it reminds us some Hollywood/NY entertainers have a long way to go in understanding what the rest of America understands - that acceptance of inappropriate sexual comments about an underage girl, who could be anyone’s daughter, contributes to the atrociously high rate of sexual exploitation of minors by older men who use and abuse others.’”
- Governor Sarah Palin
Letterman released a half assed apology this morning.
I don’t need to tell you whose side I am on. But I do need to tell you why I am siding with the Palins. The rule of decency has always been to leave the children of politicians (especially non- adult children) out of the jokes and any disparaging remarks concerning their parents. But Letterman not only violated that, he reached a new low by making it sexual. Let me be clear on this point. That was a sick, perverse, cruel, unwarranted, illogical, vitriolic remark; and there is nothing that can defend it, not even for sake of comedy because guess what… it wasn’t even funny. It was just wrong.
The constant need by the public left to attack Sarah Palin and her family won’t help them make Republican’s look bad. It won’t help liberals win elections, and it won’t help change the social makeup of this country. This is just one example of the hypocrisy of the left. I mentioned their inherent racism in my last article, and now their sexism is exposed yet again. Still they say Conservatives and Republicans are the sexist and racist ones!
Just a tip for those of you just starting to wet your feet in the political world there is a saying you should know. If ever you want to know what the left is doing, check out what they accuse the right of. It never fails.
