Dead on

Is it a sign of the Apocalypse when NOW aligns itself with a Republican front-runner?

Even that "women's advocacy group" - among others - took offense at Letterman's remarks about Palin's "slutty stewardess look" and her daughter (14-year-old Willow) getting "knocked up" by A Rod during their Yankees outing.

Who wants to sit by Letterman on his next flight? I'd keep my seatbelt on, 'cause it might be a bumpy ride.

Politically, Palin made an astute point that one can hope will be taken to heart (or any major organ) by the media:
[Palin] said there was a double standard where the media treats President Barack Obama's family as generally off-limits while her family was the target of jokes during last fall's presidential campaign and beyond.

Honey, that ain't the only double standard working here, but it's true.

Chelsea Clinton? The media called her horsey-faced and left her alone. When does that kid ever hit the radar? The Bush twins? Who do you think tipped the cops off so often to their bar-hopping antics? The Gore kids? Crap, I think the press used to buy them coke, hide their joints and alert them when the cops were in the neighborhood.

So now we know it's open season for anyone to take shots at Republicans and their children.
