Moving on up – From Gitmo to Bermuda

“Four Chinese Muslims detained at Guantanamo Bay prison were freed Thursday and resettled in Bermuda, sparking complaints from China and Britain even as the Obama administration tried to iron out details for sending more detainees to the Pacific island of Palau.

Bermuda’s acceptance of the four detainees marks the first time since 2006 that the U.S. has successfully resettled any of Guantanamo’s population of Uighurs (WEE’-gurs). China strongly opposed their release, contending they were part of a Chinese separatist movement.”

Attorney General Eric Holder says that U. S. is  “extremely grateful to the government of Bermuda.”

Should Letterman be fired?

This is the ridiculous “apology” Letterman made for hitting below the belt:

“We were, as we often do, making jokes about people in the news and we made some jokes about Sarah Palin and her daughter and now they’re upset with me…” Letterman says on tonight’s show (9th or 10th). “These are not jokes made about her 14-year-old daughter. I would never, never make jokes about raping or having sex of any description with a 14-year-old girl…. Am I guilty of poor taste? Yes. Did I suggest that it was okay for her 14-year-old daughter to be having promiscuous sex? No.” Saying he hopes he’s “cleared part of this up,”

Okay.  Cleared it right up.  So now we know where the line is.  As long as a politician’s daughters/children are 18, it’s A-okay to make degrading or vulgar jokes.  Just remember that.  As soon as one of Obama’s daughters reaches the magic age, she will be fair game.

See this: Should Letterman Be Fired?”.  I notice he himself has a young son, (pictured) looks to be at least 6, and I read he just a few months ago, March 19. 2009 to be exact,  married the mother, long term girlfriend Regina Lasko.

According to David’s marriage announcement, David and Regina began dating in February 1986.

So really…..talk about promiscuous sex.  🙂  What’s that old saying about glass houses?

But fired?  No.  Just boycott his show and maybe it will die a natural death.
