Enough Already on the Letterman Joke

It seems a small group of Sarah Palin supporters started a "Fire David Letterman" campaign. After his joke and two apologies, we saw that - once again - Sarah Palin just likes to be in the spotlight. She is much more of a candidate for the cover of the National Enquirer than a political figure of any sort. Now at least she seems to have accepted his last apology - of course this is after she's made a massive deal out of a joke, exaggerated it to the max, and fired up her fan base.

But, after Letterman's two apologies, I had to laugh when I read this from Entertainment Weekly. Seems the comedian is back to his old self:

"I want to get through this quickly so you can get to the 'Fire Dave' rally," he said, referring to the demonstration being held by Gov. Sarah Palin supporters, a gathering that one news source said numbered three dozen, while put the number closer to 15. Wow, what a show of outrage. Do you get the feeling that even the people who are angry at Letterman are beginning to feel it's time to live and let live?

The theme of the nightly Top 10 List was the "Top 10 Things Overheard at the Fire David Letterman Rally." It included "When does Cheney arrive with the waterboarding gear?" "Well, it was nice of CBS to provide the catering," and "Isn't there always a crowd demanding Letterman be fired?"

As I said in an earlier post, Palen is the one who paraded her kids out like props, not Letterman. And Palen is the one who has brought all this up about her fourteen year old. It's all just plain stupid. So now, let it go already. He's a comedian who makes his living out of being inappropriate at times. And for the couple dozen or so people who showed up for the "Fire David Letterman" rally - get a life.
