Despicable Dave Letterman

My good friend Bob sent me this story about Dave Letterman posted by Deal Hudson at Inside Catholic.

"......Letterman's sleazy "joke" about Governor Sarah Palin's 14-year-old daughter Willow being "knocked up" by New York Yankees baseball player Alex Rodriguez."....If Letterman had made a similar joke about one of the Obama daughters, he wouldn't have a career anymore. The torrent of rage would have driven him from CBS -- and perhaps from his home state of Connecticut as well.

It is often said that, when you decide to enter politics, you accept the ridicule that comes with being a public figure. That warning shouldn't apply to 14-year-old children who do nothing to attract the attention. She wasn't guilty of wild parties, late-night drinking, or conspicuous consumption... she's just a kid whose mother has become a rallying figure for Christian conservatives.

A twisted, wounded animal in desperate need of prayers.
