The Obama Standard: Letterman Assaulted Sarah & Willow Palin

Great comment by “hit and run” at this HotAir Headlines post regarding David Letterman’s tasteless, sexist jokes about Governor Sarah Palin and her 14 year-old daughter Willow.

You know, I feel sorry for Don Imus. It’s like he was used for a specific, time-limited, politically-driven purpose — and has no more value as a lesson in how ill-chosen, sexually-charged and hateful words directed at young women are intolerable in our society.

He was used this way by people like, oh, I don’t know, say, Barack Obama:

There’s also another kind of violence though that we’re gonna have to think about. It’s not necessarily physical violence but that the violence that we perpetrate on each other in other ways. Last week, the big news, obviously, had to do with Imus and the verbal violence that was directed at young women who were role models for all of us, role models for my daughter. I spend, along with my wife, a lot of time making sure that my two young daughters, who are gorgeous and tall and I hope will get basketball scholarships, that they feel good about who they are and that they understand they can do whatever they can dream might be possible. And for them to be degraded, or to see someone who looks like them degraded, that’s a form of violence – it may be quiet, it may not surface to the same level of the tragedy we read about today and we mourn, but it is violence nonethesame.

The verbal violence of Imus degrading the Rutgers women was enough for Obama to call for Imus’s resignation.

Oh, and yeah, Obama certainly does NOT consider Bristol to be a “role model for [his] daughters” because she decided to accept her “punishment” and carry, deliver and now raise precious little Tripp.

I wait with baited breath for the Left to use the same standard as their messiah and call what David Letterman said about Sarah Palin and her daughter Willow “verbal violence”, as well as call for his resignation.

  1. Finally someone makes the Imus connection.

    Can’t believe you are the first one to bring this up.

    • rcrunch — I’ve seen some people mention the Imus connection in blog comments I’ve read on the topic, but I haven’t seen a lot of major blogs bring up the connection. Which is surprising, because it is pretty obvious.

  2. Letterman is a deranged slob- and his stale schtick’s about as funny as a train wreck.

    If Sarah Palin is SO silly and irrelevant, why the obsession? Clearly the Left noted her appeal, and are out to eliminate the threat- it’s not like it’s not obvious.

    And she’s been highly successful in life while ignoring the left-wing feminist model… this helps to explain the extra dose of venom in the attacks.

    Go get em, Sarah- and don’t mind the press, nobody will be listening to them anymore after the pending Obamamania implosion-

    • reaganiterepublican — I agree, they do seem to be pretty scared of the threat Sarah Palin presents to their elitist bubble. For the past 10 months, they have been doing everything they can think of to try to destroy her. Yet, she remains strong. If Teleprompter Barry even had 1/100th of the attacks from the press that they fling at Governor Palin, he would crumble. Hell, the guy couldn’t even take it when the press made fun of his ears! heh

      And the American people are already finally getting their heads out of their orifices and seeing Obama for the fraud that he is. It’s only a matter of time now before he completely self-destructs. The sooner, the better.

  3. […] for his tasteless “nappy headed hos” joke last year. Even going so far as to call it “verbal violence”! So NBC obviously must think that Obama is a hater! […]
