Nothing drives me crazier than fake outrage. In this particular case, the Republican establishment is lining up outside CBS headquarters with their torches.

Sometimes, it goes the other way.

You see, everyone out there gets mad for no reason at least once in their lives. Remember the "lipstick on a pig" bit? People were really mad over it, even though it obviously had nothing to do with Sarah Palin.

Palin's return to the news comes courtesy of a David Letterman Top Ten list. Enjoy.

The "slutty flight attendant" line was a 500-foot home run to dead-center field.

Palin got pissed. Big shock.
But the diciest joke centered on the family attending a Yankees baseball game.

Letterman said "an awkward moment" occurred for Palin when, "during the seventh inning, her daughter was knocked up by (Yankee third baseman) Alex Rodriguez."

Without naming her, the joke seemed to refer to Palin's 18-year-old daughter Bristol, an unwed mother.

But it was 14-year-old daughter Willow, not Bristol, who had been at the game.

Todd Palin issued a statement that said "any 'jokes' about raping my 14-year-old are despicable."

And Sarah Palin charged Letterman with "sexually perverted comments made by a 62-year-old male celebrity."
Letterman responded Wednesday night.

Perfectly played, sir. That's why Letterman rules late night.

Let's make a list of things David Letterman did NOT do in these jokes.

1. Call Sarah Palin a slut.
2. Joke about ARod "knocking up" her 14-year-old daughter

If you're incapable of understanding these jokes and their proper context, you shouldn't be watching Letterman. In fact, it would probably help you to not watch any television or read anything on the internet.

Maybe Palin will someday understand this while she stares at Russia from the big window in the governor's mansion.

Lipstick on a pig is exactly what I thought of too. It's funny how Palin turns everything around to be as horrible as possible and then cries about it. She's the worst kind of scum.

Letterman apparently made a joke about Sarah Palin's 14 year old daughter being raped. This is despicable and a perfect indicator of the liberal sense of humor.

Sorry, I don't find rape jokes funny Mr. Letterman. Maybe you and your liberal friends do, but then again you haven't been funny in years.

What would the reaction have been from the liberal media if the joke had been about knocking up Obama's daughter or Chelsea Clinton...Outrage. We'll never know for sure because Letterman would never have done this since he is a left wing loser. He uses his show to regularly to voice his political views..this is wrong.

I'm not sure what the reaction would have been, but I can tell you what it wouldn't have been. It wouldn't have been "oh my god, he's joking about raping my 14 year old daughter!" when it was obvious the joke was referring to their older daughter. But then, obvious things have often had no effect in the minds of conservatives, especially when it gets in the way of fake outrage.
