David Letterman lashes out at Sarah Palin

David Letterman lashed out during an opening monologue against Sarah Palin and her daughter when he called Gov. Palin a slut and joked that her daughter got knocked up by A-Rod in the 7th inning of a baseball game. This from Letterman who just recently married the mother of his five-year-old son.

Why does Gov. Palin continue to be attacked? Both comments were over the top especially the "joke" about her daughter.

But even more is the disappointment in the portion of the GOP who do not like her and continue to make behind-the-scenes snide comments about a woman who fires up the base. Her speeches are energizing and motivating ... she continues to pull huge crowds.

Just last week over 20,000 people turned out to see Gov. Palin in a parade in upstate New York. Gateway Pundit has all the details of her speech in which she laid it on the line about Obama to the delight of those attending.

And through it all, Gov. Palin rises above the the bashers, a role model to others who face cowardly verbal attacks.

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.

Of course, the Democrats are plenty afraid of Palin coming-back at them in 2012 with a dynamic and complementary VP like Bobby Jindal… or visa versa.

And they surely have reason to fear her- Palin is the most popular governor in the country… are all those people idiots? Alaska was a pretty corrupt system until she stepped in. Her reforms took on entrenched politicians (inc. Republicans), a mafioso-style union boss, and Big Oil.

Wouldn’t it have been nice if Obama had been principled and brave enough to confront the corrupt Chicago Democratic Machine?

Or shady political operators like Tony Rezko?

Racist preachers?

Instead of doing business with every last one of them?

Go get em, Sarah- and don’t mind the press, nobody will be listening to them anymore after the pending Obamamania implosion- and once the ties of GE and others with media holdings to the Obama administration are fully exposed.

Sarah clearly is a threat to the liberals and some Republicans. Only when someone is effective do they endure those kinds of public attacks ... and she clearly is an effective leader and a strong woman.

Sarah Palin energizes people, still draws huge crowds, and continues to be an inspiration to conservatives. You hit the nail on the head as to why she is a threat to the other side of the aisle.

Thanks for dropping by with your observations.
