Yup. Good times, indeed.
Dave Letterman‘s Bristol Palin joke has manifested into an angry mob of mouthbreathing assholes.
Yesterday, at least a dozen people gathered outside the Ed Sullivan Theater in New York City to protest the “verbal pedophile”. It’s incredible, actually. These people have actually convinced themselves that Letterman was actually making a sex joke about a 14 year-old. Not only that, but they’ve managed to whip themselves up into a frothy frenzy. Of course, these folks have no problem saying nasty things about Dave’s kids, but hey, they’re Christians, so it’s OK.
The most interesting take on this situation that I’ve heard came from the comments section over at RawStory.com. I’m not going to dig up the actual quote (at work and all) but the gist of it was “why is Sarah Palin deflecting a joke that’s obviously about her adult daughter onto her 14 year old-child?” That’s messed up, if you think about it. The Palin family was the first to use the word “rape,” which is now spreading like wild fire among the mouthbreathers.
Anyway, if you’re in the mood for some LOLZ, check the video of the “fucktard fatwa”:
