Sarah and David

With an economic crisis going on, government spending running amok, and civil disorder in Iran, it is good to know that the social conservatives have not lost sight of what is really important: defending Sarah Palin and her daughters against the evil talk show host David Letterman.

This puzzles on several levels: why would the social conservatives engage in something that almost goes beyond self-parody? Why pick this occasion to go after Letterman, when the jokes in question are not even really aimed at Palin's daughters?

There is actually a boycott of sorts going on that has apparently resulted in some companies pulling their ads from Letterman.

I don't get this at all. Surely these people have something better to do with their time.
