Sarah Palin Responds to Letterman's stupid comments

I am glad that Palin nailed Letterman on this claim that he was referring to a daughter who wasn't at the baseball game. Letterman can't even just say that he was mistaken about which daughter was at the baseball game.

UPDATE: Letterman is bad enough, but Keith Olbermann is completely nuts. He starts off my claiming that Letterman apologized for his joke (which is simply not true (see above link)), and then calls Palin power crazed for not accepting that apology. Matt Lauer even asks Palin when she appeared on his show on Friday morning of Letterman owed her an apology (Lauer obviously realized that Letterman had already apologized). Olbermann claims that Palin was on the Today show to push the natural gas pipeline but at first claiming that Palin had somehow highjacked the appearance as a chance to go after Letterman. Well, anyone who watched it saw that Palin was asked about Letterman, she didn't bring it up, though I am sure that she knew that the issue would be raised. NBC wanted her on the show to talk about the Letterman controversy.

Olbermann does seem to understand that WIllow was the daughter who was at the baseball game -- Letterman's joke was about the girl that was at the game. Olbermann must have repeated 6 times that Letterman had apologized, but I would like someone to point to where it is that Letterman apologized. All he said was that anyone who knows him knows that he wouldn't make a sexual joke about a 14 year old. Letterman couldn't even say that he was sorry for not realizing that a different daughter was with Palin at the baseball game -- that he simply made a mistake and that he should have checked the facts more carefully.

Olbermann's claim about a glut of natural gas is pretty funny. Does the guy have any shame?

I couldn't agree more.

Letterman's comments were vile. While I'm not a great fan of Palin, attacking her daughter in this fashion was inexcusably low and disgusting. This sort of conduct has become far too common, and we will not begin to correct it until people stand up and note that it's disgusting. Good for Palin for having the courage to do so.

Does Olbermann have any shame? Well, anyone who devotes 2/3's of every show to childishly attacking his vastly superior competition can't have much, if any.

I said this before and Dr. Lott chose not to publish my comment, but I will try again.

I look forward to a blog post about Rusty DePass' comments that Michelle Obama is related to a gorilla and on Mr. DePass' lame "apology."

Perhaps the best analysis of the Letterman's comments and the Palins' response.
