I think y'all have heard about the on-going feud between David Letterman and Sarah Palin over a tasteless joke (Is there any other kind on late night TV?) that old Dave made about her daughter, Bristol, age 18, and the Palins went nuts. From what I can figure Dave didn't realize that that she had two daughters and his staff put up Willow Palin's photo instead of Bristol's. (Do we ever hear about her older son?) And Sarah and Todd, over-reacted and decided he was talking about their 14-year-old daughter. No surprise there -- Sarah never misses a chance to get press and, in my not so humble opinion, doesn't give a damn who, why or what or where she gets it. When a body drags her children constantly before the media things like this are going to happen.
YouTube fairly lit up with video. Dave has apologized and has since come up with joke after joke about the Palins and they, of course, are dragging it out, too. This is getting awfully sophomoric and tacky in my mind and all I'm going to do is remind the Palins of President Harry S "Give 'em hell, Harry" Truman's words: "If you don't like the heat, get out of the kitchen." I liked Harry -- we need a guy like him these days.
That said, I found this video that speaks to the situation rather well and I agree with this guy unequivocally.
This has gone on for over six months. I'm tired of it -- are you?
