Sarah Palin Continues Late Show Promotional Campaign With Stop At Today Show
Sarah Palin's 'You Raped My Daughter: Now You Pay' World Tour 2009 made a pit stop at The Today Show this morning, where Matt Lauer humored the Governor for a few minutes about her exciting new Alaska-Canada pipeline/waterslide initiative before he broached the topic of her ongoing feud with confirmed sex predator David Letterman. (It begins around the 3:20 mark.) Palin unleashed an avalanche of irate talking points, as the backdrop behind her magically dissolved into a waving American flag, each of its 50 stars replaced by a tiny Dave-head inside a red no-smoking circle.
The points fly fast and furious: His joke promoted the "acceptance of abuse of young women," the time has come for the nation to "start really rising up" against the pervy Late Night patriarchy, whose patented brand of Rape Humor contributes to "[young girls'] low self-esteem in America." Wait! She's not finished: If you were to hand her a dry-erase marker and a whiteboard, she could easily "connect the dots to a degrading statement made about young women, and that does contribute to some acceptance of abuse of young women."
Asked about her own retaliatory Willow rape joke, she replied, "Hey, take it however you want to take it. It is a comment that came from the heart that Willow, no doubt, would want to stay away from David Letterman after he made such a comment. And you can interpret that however you want to interpret it."
