    Where Are the Feminists in the Palin-Letterman War?

    GRETA VAN SUSTEREN, FOX NEWS HOST: Does Dave get it? Was that an apology or really a lame excuse? Now, everyone is talking about the sex joke David Letterman made about Governor Sarah Palin, and worse, about her 14-year-old daughter. Last weekend, while she was in New York, Governor Palin took her 14-year- old to a Yankee game. And this week, in his monologue, David Letterman made a raunchy sexual joke about the governor's daughter being knocked up by a Yankee baseball player.

    Letterman now claims he was talking about the governor's 18-year-old daughter, Bristol, not her 14-year-old. Really, Dave? You think your remarks about sex and getting knocked up are OK if they are directed at an 18-year-old woman and not a 14-year-old? That makes it OK?


    Well, here's what Letterman said. You decide if this is dripping with sarcasm, like I just was, or whether it is genuinely sorry and that he gets it.

    Where Are the Feminists in the Palin-Letterman War?

    Well folks ....they don't have the balls...(fortitude) to say anything. There's a double standard, ..... people with common sense know this.
    Yes, if it was a conservative who said this the NAGS ..FEMINISTS would be fit to be tied! It would be on the news day and night for weeks.

    Ahhh..those FEMINISTS...they will be on you side if you're a liberal and If you support abortion on demand.




    Feminists, They Are Fierce!​


    Those feminists, they are fierce and in your face! You can't live with them and you can't shoot em!!

    For two generations feminists have wanted equality. They have wanted to live like men and created the metro sexual man.

    They have attempted to castrate men. …Make them more sensitive to gender equality. In the process, they lost their identity; they lost how to be themselves. They lost 'how to be a woman'.

    Now, researchers have found that men and women who are equal…are more likely to suffer illness. Man becomes sick because he can't be a man.

    You can't fool Mother Nature…and so many times Mother Nature calls…it's time to bare children. Then the feminists hang it up to play mom. Yes folks, so many women lost opportunities…. They may have let Mr. Right slip through their fingers. Now that Mother nature is calling…they will do with Mr. OK for the time being.

    To you feminist, what has feminism done for you besides make you Angry? They have told you that men were predators and you couldn't be a sub-servant to them. They told you couldn't be feminine because it looks weak. You couldn't be what nature indented you to be, a sensitive, perceptive and a beautiful woman.

    Those feminists, they are fierce and in your face!

    Letterman has an audience that his jokes appeal to and no matter how moronic or distateful his jokes may be, he is in the ratings business. If he thought that calling Sarah Palin any name he could call her to get a laugh given the current political climate and any number of publications that would back these completely uncalled for jokes, would increase his ratings then he will do them. The only choice you have as a viewer is to change the channel or express your opinion otherwise. I'm sure given the fact that these dishornorable jokes were only directed at the young daughter of the wicked Sarah Palin that makes them alright and you will hear no calls for his resignation as with Imus, or no screams for an apology like you heard from an outraged media over other comments made from so called "talking heads" Although this is not a "double standard" because again its only directed at a young teenage girl and it's all in good fun and all the enlightened people had a good laugh over it.

    Imagine liberals, that Rush had made that comment in reference to one of Obama's daughters.

    Let's imagine...if Rush said the same thing about the president's daughter. Hmm. Okay, it really wouldn't make sense because a) the president doesn't have a daughter that is a mother and b) the president doesn't promote abstinence.

    David Letterman is not a politician, he's a comedian. He wasn't speaking at a political event but you say "imagine liberals...." This matter is between a comedian and a family. Where do the politics come in?

    Exactly Missouri. I don't agree with a lot of the BS in the post that opened this thread but the one thing that was spot on is the two faced idiocy of feminist who will cheerfully castrate a Republican or a talk show host who disagrees with them on some issues but who will let slide anything a liberal idiot like Letterman hs to say no matter how it assualts women sensibilities other wise.

    They were clamoring for Imus to lose his job, but nary a peep out of 'em when Letterman makes light of borderline pedophilia. The daughter that was actually present at the game is fourteen for pete's sake.

    Or lets "imagine" if Rush had made a comment about Clintons daughter. Where was the outrage on the right then?
