    I didn't think that she had a history of knockupness I only have heard of one case of knockupity .... but you're the dog you must know better !lol

    On the topic of the actual apology, I thought it was fine. He should've done that instead of the funny half-apology he originally did, but honestly, I blame the Palins for turning it into what it has become. If not for them blustering over it all week, most people would've forgotten about the joke 10 minutes after hearing it. People who didn't watch the show would probably never have heard about it at all. The Palins daughter(s) might never have heard it or been embarassed by it, their friends might never have heard it or teased them about it, and we would all be talking about something else right now.

    Instead, because of the Palins making a big deal over it in the media, everyone has heard the joke multiple times, probably the Palins daughter(s) more than most, and they're probably incredibly embarassed by it.

    Btw, whoever said Letterman was afraid of getting fired...

    And, I think, through all of this, we have failed to ask one very important question at the heart of this issue, which is... where is Alex Rodriguez' apology?! Stadium boy deserves one too!
    Exactly correct!! If the Igloo Girl had not made her little Ice Cubes a prop for her campaign they would not be in the floodlights as they are now.

    Again that does not excuse Letterman for the poorly concieved joke but if the country hadn't known about Palin's kids there would not be a joke about them.

    Recall who actually started this with an insensitive joke?

    This seems to me to be a stunt by both of them at this point.
    Dave to deal with Conan kicking his ratings in the ding dong and Palin to keep her popularity wave.

    Win/Win


    I would not be surprised if it came out later to be staged.
    Thank you

    Look if you don't know that Igloos are no longer used by the Inuits you need to do some research. The name Igloo Girl was meant to poke fun at the Palin woman and I like most intelligent aware people know that Palin is not an Inuit. Yes I do know that her husband is part Native American or Inuit or smething but I do not call him anything because he is not famous so why make fun of him.

    he name Igloo Girl is not racist, nor sexist, nor culturist, nor anything bad that you so dsperately want it to be.

    I coined the name a long time ago and I will keep using it becuse I like to
    and I think it's a form of sarcasm " satirical or ironic utterance designed to cut or give pain".

    You don't have to like it and I may not like what you say or how you say it or when you say it either. And I don't care !!!

    So then, you confess that it isn't about intelligent discussion. It's about being a boorish attack hound and inflicting as much inflammation as possible.

    You know, just because you can.

    Glad we cleared that up.

    F107 just wants to be an extremely poor mans, pathetic imitation of Rush Limbaugh with his idiotic and rather juvenile 5 year old names that we all laugh at, and not in the "laughing with you" kind of way.
