1. No, I find some of them to be quite horrifyingly sexist
Palin is a RW nutjob, but she's not a slut.

5. There are a bunch in there that are pretty bad
Some of those responses are more concerning to me than Letterman's actual jokes (well, he has writers, I doubt seriously that he wrote them himself).

6. I am surprised that the cops haven't swung by that party and told them
to turn off the music and go home.

7. why aren't you pissed off at the OP?
"Take to the woodshed":

To beat up someone or something very badly

to describe a thorough beating

or maybe that's okay. :shrug:

8. Not really. Those people were being pricks.
And while I think N.O.W. arguably overreacted to Letterman, I can't begin to understand the rabidly angry reactions to their reaction. Letterman isn't going anywhere, no one's calling for him to be fired, so why the knee-jerk hostility? :shrug:

9. Glad I missed that flame-fest
Palin will take advantage of anything to get where she wants. She's an unabashed opportunist and publicity hunter.

Letterman performed as entertainers in his genre do. They range in offensiveness, but almost all of them cross boundaries and offend.

I don't watch him and don't enjoy that sort of entertainment much, but I think some of the outrage is misplaced. Palin dotes on that sort of free publicity, and plainly chummed the waters with her family to lure the sharks in.

Ratings, people. Blame it on the public that feeds the machine.

12. No -- I'm glad I wasn't online last night
I'd probably have been banned.
