These late night comedians have been getting away with it for years.  But I can no longer sit idly by while David Lettermen makes absolutely viscious remarks about former Republican Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin and her daughter Bristol.  Are there no standards at all anymore?  As far as I am concerned these types of highly personal and hurtful comments have no absolutely no place on television.  It is time that good people speak out about the cesspool that TV …
