Sarah Palin owes the American people of very sincere apology. She owes David Letterman an apology. She owes her own children an apology. Her actions and statements have been dangerous, exploitive, divisive and deceptive

I am disappointed that the media pundits commenting on this case did not point out that Sarah Palin conveniently used a 6 second joke by a non-political figure to divert the discussion away from the role Palin’s recent political rhetoric has played in creating a hostile and dangerous political climate in America over the past year. Palin’s outrageous comments falsely connecting Obama to socialism, falsely creating a completely unfounded fear of Big Brother government and stoking up political paranoia on the Right is dangerous and in poor taste. Her kind of rhetoric can directly be connected to the recent murders by Right-Wing extremists at the Holocaust museum in DC and in Kansas. She stoked the paranoia and inflamed their misguided passions and twisted political world view.

The Palin-type of extreme political rhetoric from the Republican Right has been feeding a growing domestic terrorist problem in America. This kind of dangerous rhetoric routinely comes not only from Palin herself, but also, from Right-Wing talk radio hosts like Rush Limbaugh and Michael Savage, extremist Right-Wing websites like Free Republic.com and, unfortunately, from many, many Republican Party officials and activists. Examples of Right-Wing political hate speech on talk radio are legion. Free Republic.com has thousands of posted comments of the most extreme nature. At about the same time that Palin was making her most recent inflammatory comments, the Republican Party held a political fundraiser that raised over $15 million dollars where a second rate actor called Obama “dangerous” and made many other hate-filled comments about our President.

We all remember the Sarah Palin rallies during the 2008 Presidential campaign where the crowd contained numerous Right-Wing nut jobs who shouted “kill him” when Obama’s name was mentioned. We all know about the Right-Wing conspiracy theories that contend Obama is a secret Muslim and/or not really an American citizen. We saw hundred if not thousands of signs to this effect at the McCain-Palin rallies in 2008 and at the Fox News/Republican sponsored anti-tax “tea parties” earlier this year. The man who committed the political murders at the Holocaust museum in DC wrote in support of these whack-job Right-Wing conspiracy theories on the Free Republic.com web site!

I guess Stephen Crockett would be happy if his family were the brunt of an offensive Letterman joke. It would probably relish the free advertising he would be getting.

It was proven that NO ONE said Kill Him in any rally........So he lies to try to make a non point. Every thing else he says is just a bunch of BS

This just goes to prove the Moonbats are such loser, they don't know they won the election; Moonbats are under the impression that Sarah Palin won as VP, and they're still the oppsition.

Well, maybe...but only by idiots and political tools. :rolleyes:

And totally tick you all off. We know. It's just too bad your own little "hate-mongers" were so boring that they couldn't keep their shows on air.


Free Republic.com has thousands of posted comments of the most extreme nature.

Can anyone say DemocraticUnderground??? How about DailyKOS??? Huffington Post??

You have no worries, your hate speech has plenty of outlets.


At about the same time that Palin was making her most recent inflammatory comments, the Republican Party held a political fundraiser that raised over $15 million dollars where a second rate actor called Obama “dangerous” and made many other hate-filled comments about our President.

HOW DARE AN ACTOR DISS OUR PRESIDENT...unless, of course, it's a lefty slamming BusHitler. That's all different. Dissent is patriotic under a Puke Pres, right?


We all remember the Sarah Palin rallies during the 2008 Presidential campaign where the crowd contained numerous Right-Wing nut jobs who shouted “kill him” when Obama’s name was mentioned.

Yeah, we all know that you guys are very good at "remembering" things that didn't happen. Tell a lie long enough and often enough and it'll stick.


We all know about the Right-Wing conspiracy theories that contend Obama is a secret Muslim and/or not really an American citizen.

We all know that there were law suits filed by Democrats over Obama's citizenship, also. We also know that, if Pres O is a Christian, he is completely ignorant about the most basic Christian theology.


We saw hundred if not thousands of signs to this effect at the McCain-Palin rallies in 2008 and at the Fox News/Republican sponsored anti-tax “tea parties” earlier this year. The man who committed the political murders at the Holocaust museum in DC wrote in support of these whack-job Right-Wing conspiracy theories on the Free Republic.com web site!

He also wanted to kill neocons. I wonder what his DUmp name is. Are any of the real whackos missing these last few days??

It all adds up to the same thing; Moonbats are looking for reasons to hurt people who disagree with them.

The next series of Tea Parties will be on July 4th; wonder if the Moonbats will want the National Guard to re-enact Tiananmen Square on the protesters.


UP THE REBELS !!!

--Where do all these "moonbats" come from? They must breed off the same mutated gene pool.

The Democrats are long gone as a Party. I think they ended after Truman, but I'll extend it as far as Kennedy. Then it all changed. They are now simply a compilation of squeaky Liberal ignoramuses. All of 'em.

There are still a ton of threads on this thing on the DUmp.

There's one supporting Letterman with some kind of solidarity thread: http://www.democraticunderground.com/discuss/duboard.php?az=view_all&address=389x5846632

There's one accusing Palin of producing low self esteem in young women :confused::

http://www.democraticunderground.com/discuss/duboard.php?az=show_mesg&forum=389&topic_id=5843916&mesg_id=5843916

And there's a truly sad and twisted one trying to get the old guard feminist types to react (yeah, good luck with that :rolleyes: ) : http://www.democraticunderground.com/discuss/duboard.php?az=show_mesg&forum=389&topic_id=5842650&mesg_id=5842650

So I guess it's not dying yet.

And Letterman is loving the whole thing. He needed a ratings boost, and he got one. Personally, I think the joke was deliberately aimed at Willow to score points with libs, and to score against Palin - who is perceived, thanks to our leftist media, as someone worthy of being slammed.

This dirtbag's ratings will spike in the short run. In the long run, his rating will sink into the toliet.

She might want to think about going on Conan O. show; he might give her a free hand in doing some jokes about a perverted old man that has had a heart attack and is still sucking on big fat cigars.

So are you all saying that a double standard is O.K.? MSNBC's David Shuster was suspended when he made a comment about "it's like they are pimping out Chelsea". Chelsea was in here late 20's. Which ever daughter Letterman means (Willow or Bristol) and I DO NOT believe he thought he was joking about the eldest, he needs to be held accountable. Suspend him or Fire him but do something!!!

No, we're saying that Letterman deliberately took the chance that he'd get away with saying something filty and manage to get ratings out of it.

Exactly. And I'll bet that's what he did. Stealing thunder from Conan's first week. Letterman was a rat bastard to Leno when Carson left.

He wont be fired, suspended, or anything of the sort. The moment anything like that happens hes gonna cry first amendment violations and sue, and seeing as he is masterful at working the golden rule...he who has the gold makes the rules...he will win. This should be dropped and he should be left to continue using a time slot that wont then be used for anyone truly dangerous.

If someone showed such disrespect for Hussein Obama's girls, they'd be fired (and rightly so).
I used to watch Letterman and I thought he was funny until he became so politically misguided.
This was over the line and Letterman needs to be sent packing. Found another site that might
be of interest. :)
