On his show last night, David Letterman said he was sorry for his stupid, confusing, offensive joke about Sarah Palin’s daughter(s).
Some on the right, are not satisfied with his apology. My take is this, he likely was not truly sorry. Most public figures apologies over offensive remarks are not sincere.
While many of these “outrages” that end up in some fake, scripted apology are completely baseless, think about the apologies that race pimps like Je$$e Jackson demand over siome offense that they, more than anyone else created or fabricated. I can appreciate that Sarah Palin wanted an apology, I can also appreciate the Right coming to the defense of her and her daughters. I could completely understand if Todd Palin decked Letterman over his remarks. In fact, I might pay to watch that.
For those demanding Letterman be fired though, a word of warning. How many times has some Liberal group, played this card? Think about it. Do we REALLY want to be like them? Do we really want to further this PC idea that anyone making an offensive remark should be out of a job?
Yes, what Letterman “joked” about was offensive and he ought to be ashamed, but a comedian putting his foot in his mouth is nothing new. He apologized, and I see no benefit in seeking to destroy him over this.
Leave the Liberals to their thin-skinned carping and whining. Let us move on to reclaiming our Conservative principles, and thus majorities in the House and Senate. Let us fight like Hell to ward off Obamacare, and cap and trade, and the rest of Obama’s radical agenda.
Let us waste no more energy on Letterman, no one watches his dried up show anyway.
