After days and days of furor directed at the Letterman jokes, NOW finally decided it was time to say something.

And they said it well, to be sure, covering the kids aspect, the way Chelsea Clinton was treated, how political sides are no excuse for demeaning of women. They even said

Letterman also joked about what he called Palin’s “slutty flight attendant look” — yet another example of how the media love to focus on a woman politician’s appearance, especially as it relates to her sexual appeal to men.

Which is wonderful – and very, very, very late.

Where were you when they were calling Hillary names? I only remember the post-portem

“NOW’s president, Kim Gandy, said her members would remain alert: “We’re going to keep watching because we think Michelle Obama will be the recipient of the same kind of attacks that Hillary was.”

Thank God you remained vigilent on Michelle while declaring Palin was not a woman

Gov. Palin may be the second woman vice-presidential candidate on a major party ticket, but she is not the right woman.

So, you may imagine why Dave got a bit confused about all the mixed messages. Maybe he understood from you and all the other “feminists” that Palin was a dude, therefore offense-proof. Maybe he thought that now a days , that’s what a feminist looks like

and not them objects with skirts and slutty looks…

That being said, we hope that you’ll be able to stay awake long enough to see sexism and misogyny even when coming from Teh One.

I am still waiting for your reaction on his defense of the women’s right to wear a hijab?

Or the one about Obama not asking Sotomayor about her position on choice rights?

It would be nice if NOW could actually respond to events as they happen – not a week later – as in this case. (NOW, not later)

Still, your taking on Letterman was the bravest thing you did in a long, long time.

Let’s see you actually speaking truth to power next time, and maybe your credibility may start being restored.

Or better yet, as the Reclusive Leftist recommends, change their leadership
