Palin Supporters to Provide More Fodder for Letterman Tomorrow


The very public spat between Sarah Palin and David Letterman has evolved into a kind of symbiotic relationship, providing Palin an excuse to hold numerous TV interviews, and Letterman with a well-timed ratings boost. It’s worked out great for everyone except Willow Palin, who, if we know 14-year-olds, isn’t enjoying hearing constantly about being hypothetically raped by A-Rod. Luckily, just as the controversy was petering out on its own, a group has organized a rally outside Letterman’s studio for 4:30 p.m. tomorrow to demand that the comedian be fired for a joke similar to one told by Jay Leno nine months ago. It’s being led by New York State assemblyman Brian Kolb, freelance TV legal analyst Gwendolyn Lindsay-Jackson, and radio host and documentarian John Ziegler. Now, we know what you’re thinking: Didn’t John Ziegler once go on a dating show and make the extremely misogynistic claim that an informed and rational woman is an oxymoron, and isn’t he therefore an odd choice to lead this protest? Yup!
