Get Over It Already ....

..... When did the some Americans become so stupid? With all the horrors going on in the world today, a "fringe" group of Americans are upset because David Letterman told a bad joke. Poor Sarah Palin and her publicity seeking family! Makes me want to barf!

According to EW a few dozen people held a protest outside of Letterman's studio on Tuesday afternoon. One woman was videotaped screaming:
"Keep children safe from Letterman's mouth. He will rape them with his mouth. He is a child abuser. He is a verbal pedophile."
Can you believe that? I'm sure this woman is also an abortion protester who overlooks all the abused children living in orphanages and foster homes. The funny thing is, these people were upset over his off-color joke, but it didn't bother the protesters in the least to bad mouth Letterman's son and wife. Obviously, these zealots don't practice what they preach.

According to the Huffington Post:
"Tuesday afternoon's "Fire David Letterman" rally proved to be a failure, as it drew more press than activists. A crowd of 15 protesters upset with the late night comic held signs and occasionally shouted as they stood across the street from Letterman's studio."

Get a life, people - it was a joke, a stupid joke! Letterman has apologized to Palin and she has accepted - end of story. Sarah Palin's teenage daughter Bristol gave birth to baby Tripp (out-of-wedlock) in December and broke up with the baby's father, Levi Johnston, in March. She has also talked out AGAINST abstinence as a form of birth control. She is 18 years old - a legal adult - so if she and her mother can't take the heat, they need to both get out of the kitchen!

While the joke was aimed at Bristol, Letterman actually used the name of Palin's 14 year old daughter, Willow, which is why all the hoopla.

I do think they need to fire an assistant or fact checker on that one. Someone screwed up. My husband works for CBS, and I'd bet that someone has already been fired for it. Letterman is not known to have warm fuzzies for any of his crew, and something that snuck past someone and made him look like an ass would not be taken lightly by him.

However, these people do need to get a life. Letterman apologized for the mistake, Palin accepted. Get over it already, people! And to talk about Letterman's family like that just makes them all hypocrites.

I rewatched the episode last night and Dave never actually called the daughter by name.
