That big protest we heard about last night – the one that would force NBC to fire Letterman by show of the will of the people? Well we now have a new definition of fail:
A protest rally against David Letterman over a failed joke about Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin and her daughter attracted more members of the media than protesters Tuesday afternoon.
A crowd of 15 protesters upset with the late night comic held signs and occasionally shouted as they stood across the street from Letterman’s studio.
Wow I bet NBC is just shaking in their shoes over that mob! Maybe we should line up a protest in support of Dave and to denounce that ridiculous statement that Palin released when she “accepted” Dave’s apology. The one that was written like a stump speech. Sorry but Palin made it obvious yesterday that this whole thing wasn’t about outrage, it was about politics.
And that is worse than any botched joke.
Its kind of ironic that this is going on at the same time the whole Cheney/Panetta thing is happening. I think the same analogy could now be applied to the Palins. They would let something horrible happen to one of their kids if it would work for the benefit of Sarah’s political future. Sarah Palin proved that yesterday. She didn’t care about what Letterman said, just that she would get some face time of the teevee. And these people protesting. Well we can only consider them as her enablers.
