On Monday night's "Late Night With David Letterman", Dave's Top Ten list was "highlights of Sarah Palin's trip to New York". Sarah was in town over the weekend to speak at and participate in a walk for the group Autism Speaks, a group advocating support and research into autism, a developmental disorder with no cure. On his list? The number two slot was “bought makeup at Bloomingdale’s to update her ‘slutty flight attendant’ look.” How classy, you twit. Let's just forget about the true reason she was there. Hey! The president made his "Special Olympics" comment on Leno, so it must be ok to poke fun at and ignore those who face challenges in this life.
In an interview she gave Tuesday to John Ziegler, a conservative LA-based radio host, Palin said, “That’s pretty pathetic, good ole David Letterman.”
Sarah has shown that she is quite capable of being humorous without Davey-boy's help. Her "Hockey Mom/Pit Bull" comment became one of the things that helped endear her to so many people. And do I need to mention her appearance on Saturday Night Live? My personal favorite part of that show was her appearance on "Weekend Update", SNL's news satire segment.
Sarah's ability to make light of what is a grueling ordeal (political campaign) proves she can be down to earth. Unlike Barry who prefers up in the clouds.
