Letterman: Where’s the Line?
June 14, 2009 by Amy Siskind
Yesterday Meghan McCain wrote a piece describing how the Letterman jokes reveal a double standard in the treatment of Republicans. Well there is a double standard for sure. But the double standard is how women are treated by our media. Look what they did to your mother, Meghan (in video below)!
Viewers – please take the time to watch this important video produced by a co-founder of The New Agenda at the end of the 2008 elections.
So did Letterman cross the line? You bet he did. But can we count on our media to be objective and point this out? Absolutely not. Our media has a terrible bias against the women of this country.
Thanks for Rebecca at Conservatives4Palin for sharing this video. Watch at your own peril:
Okay, let me say this. If Letterman or any other person of the media or any other venue had said those words about my teenage daughter, I would be on any and every media and blog venue that would listen. I would be defending my daughter. I think Todd and Governor Palin have a right and obligation to speak out for their child. And what buttEd and Donny are missing is that just as many dads are upset as mothers. And us mothers are not some silly flock of sheep who care because Governor Palin told us to. We are defending our collective culture from this type of crap because we all know that our daughter could be next. And women and men of ALL political parties think this is appalling and has no place in our country’s culture. This has nothing to do with political party and everything to do with our next generation. Our country deserves better.
This is why The New Agenda exists. Because, frankly, we are not going to take this crap anymore. And let me tell you, the country is listening. Know why Chris Matthews did not run for the PA Senate Seat – because of the New Agenda. Know why Larry Summers did not get the Treasury Secretary position – us again. And so much more. The New Agenda will continue to speak out against sexism and misogyny which has been breeding in our country. We want to make this country better for the next generation – in fact, we refuse to let pundits like Ed and Donny advance their idiotic POV. We’re here. We’re not going away.
