    Sorry but if you can't see that Palin is a walking soap opera with not a whole lot going on upstairs, you are hopeless.

    Also, Iran should not be meddled with.

    "Sarah Palin simply isn't articulate or intelligent enough to make a coherent point."

    Hmmm, funny she sounds incredibly articulate and intelligent here:

    Please note her speech has an utter lack of ummms, uhs, ahs, you knows and all the other fillers that our supposedly intelligent and articulate Harvard-educated President makes when not reading straight off the teleprompter. But then his excuse is he doesn't know how to speak Austrian and didn't get to visit that 57th State. Oh, and he's still looking for his birth certificate.

    On another note, way to stand up for the Iranian people, Mr. Obama. NOT! Cowardice is his middle name.

    Imus was fired even after he gave a very sincere apology, which was accepted by the women's basketball team.

    This isn't about Palin. It's about society saying we're tired of this kind of talk being rationalized as "jokes".

    Letterman should still be fired.

    Regardless whose team you are on, you have to admit that Palin invites a lot of jokes on herself and her family when she acts like an illiterate redneck.

    I do need to point out that this article is severely flawed not only by the writer's lack of understanding about politics, but for it's intentional bias as well:

    "Sarah Palin simply isn't articulate or intelligent enough to make a coherent point." Then explain to me why there will be a mass gathering of people at the Ed Sullivan Theatre tomorrow night to protest David Letterman.

    You libs don't get it yet do you. The world is on to you now. You know why? That "inarticulate" lady went on Lauer Friday and EVERYONE understood EXACTLY what she was saying. Inarticulate, bllllslllt!

    Honestly, "Fanatical Radical" he said it and its not going to change...you have your opinion just like everyone else on this page and just like you David Letterman has freedom of speech...I highly doubt that he'll get fired over it...WHY??? Because it was a JOKE!!! People are so quick to judge what others say and do but don't realize that they are human just like Letterman..in a few days or weeks everything will be back to normal because most people know that Letterman is a comedian and whoever doesn't like what he says shouldn't watch his show....I'm sure he'll do fine..

    And btw...you don't have to put my name in quotes because that is my name..

    Clearly, Letterman screwed up. He crossed the line. But he also acknowledged his mistake and apologized for it. What else does Palin want?

    Letterman may have gone too far in targeting Palin's daughter, yet the fact remains that political figures have to be willing to accept the brunt of jokes, etc.

    I'm not condoning inappropriate comments about minors, but I am saying that Palin needs to recognize that its a two-way street. If she wants other comedians to refrain from making further comments about her life and her children, then perhaps she should keep her daughter off the cover of People as well.

    Letterman's pitiful words and the hate from those who condone them are undefendable. Have you sunk so low that you can only feel worthwhile when trying to drag someone else down to your level? Is there no one of you with the courage to say this is wrong? The more you talk, the less you become.

    Does anyone actually take David Letterman seriously ?
    Or that matter any other comedian became talk show host?

    So the joke was made about one of Sarah's kids having sex with someone more than twice her age. So if you think that's all right we should be able to joke about Malia having sex with a 20 year old. Or will you change the rules? Because I've got a great finger banging joke coming up.
