    I wanted to care what this post related to us, but I couldn't bring myself after I saw the ignorant moniker thrown out meant, not to promote productive discussion and intelligent dialog, but only to inflame and prove the point I made earlier about who is really demeaned by that practice.

    Letterman got what he deserved. This probably the end of it though it will pop up in commentary for a long time to come. Especially if Palin runs and becomes President.



    That said..whats the one notable difference between this and the Imus thing?
    Answer honestly and that is the only reason Letterman was not fired.

    I find that reality worse then this.

    Where was Palin's OUTRAGE in SEPT 2008 ?

    Too hot for YouTube! NBC's Palin 'incest' video yanked
    Too hot for YouTube! NBC's Palin 'incest' video yanked

    Back in Sept 2008 SNL made a "joke" ifyou can call it that on their website " video of a "Saturday Night Live" skit featuring characters portraying New York Times reporters investigating whether Todd Palin was having sex with the couple's own daughters ". The video was yanked.

    Palin appeared on SNL after that incident because she wanted the exposure.
    If Palin, or Igloo Girl as I like to call her was so outraged about the Letterman flap why was she not even more outraged about that video?

    I believe that the Igloo Girl is a hypocrit because she did not tell NBC to go and shove thier SNL up thier asses.

    She now plays the Letterman thing up to get sympathy and exposure for 2012She is a media whore and a hypocrit.

    Again Igloo's hypocricy does not make what Letterman said or what NBC did right but being a hypocrit is not right either.

    YouTube has pulled from its website a video of a "Saturday Night Live" skit featuring characters portraying New York Times reporters investigating whether Todd Palin was having sex with the couple's own daughters after NBC expressed a claim of copyright, even though a wide range of other "SNL" clips remain available.

    But trying to prevent the clip from being replayed wasn't protecting the program and network today from the wrath of viewers, bloggers and radio talk show hosts who believe the "joke" simply went too far.

    As WND was first to report, "SNL" characters exchanged the following lines:

    "What about the husband? You know he's doing those daughters. I mean, come on. It's Alaska," from one person playing a Times reporter.

    Yes, I think you've proven your lack of commitment to intelligent discussion this way on numerous occasions.

    Since The Russian empire once extended to Alaska there are some Russian genes mixed in along with various minorities who were sent to Alaska by the Imperialist bastards e.g. Russians among those minorities were Ukrainians, Belorusses, Georgians, and an occasional Chechenyan.

    As I told you several times before you don't have to read my posts if you don't like the knicknames that I so generously bestow upon those who earn them. I do not question your intelligence only your opinions and then only if I deem them worthy of comment.

    If you don't like what I write go play in another sandbox.

    That's all very true. Further examination of those raw numbers will also show that these different cultures have become compartmentalized out in the Bush and North Slope. Traveling from Nome to Kotzebue, you see a distinct change in culture from one of Alaska Native dominance to one of almost exclusive Korean presence. Why that is, I can't even begin to guess.

    In the larger cities of Juneau, Anchorage, and Fairbanks, you get an almost metropolitan feel for such small cities compared to other parts of the country. When you arrive in places like Wasilla and Palmer in the Matsu Valley and Kenai and Soldotna out on the Kenai Peninsula, you get a whole other distinct feeling of modern suburbia. Then you have your island communities like Kodiak, King Salmon, and Ketchikan where things become relatively American "folsky" in culture. It's funny to play the "guess where the Alaskan" lives when you are sitting in a bar by analyzing their dress, speech, and general demeanor.

    I will say this, too. Alaskans are some of the most well traveled people I have ever met. Travel is important to them because if they didn't, they would just be isolated from the world.

    And if you don't like opening yourself up to criticism of your comments, don't make them.
