In his monologue last night, David Letterman made a joke about Willow Palin, the 14 year old daughter of Alaska Governor Sarah Palin, being ‘knocked up’ during the game.
Of course politics is about making jokes and politicians need to have thick skins. But what happened to families being off limits? Can you imagine if someone made a similar joke about the daughter of a Democratic politician?
I remember when people made jokes about Chelsea Clinton and they were quite properly told to lay off, that kids are off the table when it comes to making jokes. As I see it any jokes or attacks on the Obama daughters are also off limits. It would seem to me the left should feel the same way about Republican politicians and their kids.
I am waiting for the protests over this from the left, but I’m not sure they will come.
