Yesterday, Keefy predicted a trainwreck on the Today Show with the Sarah Palin and Matt Lauer interview, which aired this morning. Well, there was no trainwreck but there was a victim: David Letterman, who received an intense tongue lashing from Palin.
Gateway Pundit thinks the ‘Cuda attack was devastating, and has video.
Hot Air also has the video. Captain Ed thinks that all of the Palin attacks hurt her more than her attackers because it takes her off message and diminishes her. I think he makes a good point. But I think the attacks need to be answered, too.
And I also think that David Letterman has been diminished, as well; profoundly so. Don Surber has more to say about that:
I think David Letterman should realize that this thing is not going away.
Nor should it.
That non-apology apology of his may have amused his mama when he broke the cookie jar in Indianapolis. But he is 62 and real men apologize when they inadvertently ridicule a 14-year-old girl.
His excuse is an eye-roller: He meant her older sister, all of 18, getting knocked up. Oh that explains everything.
His bungling of this incident comes from thinking he is savvy, she is just a hick, and everyone in America hates her.
But when the National Organization for Women dumps on a liberal, he has problems.
Letterman is entering Don Imus territory. Broadcast careers can end suddenly.
I agree, when hell froze over, and NOW came out to defend her, it became obvious that he had so seriously crossed a line that even some libs (who are the arbiters of these things, ya know) can’t defend him. You can’t tell me that this little episode hasn’t damaged his credibility and reputation, not so much with his loyal fans, (like the buffoons in his audience)who think the jokes are uproariously funny, but the rest of us, who just want to be entertained without being treated to insulting, abusive humor.
