Unfortunately, this is the day of the liberal double standard in America. If you are a conservative, Christian, and/or Republican, then you are fair game for all kinds of slander, libel, personal attacks, or whatever would be considered tasteless, evil, or racist if aimed at a liberal Democrat.
During the presidential race a lot of the forum said it was ok to personally attack their wives, relatives, and friends and many said that they were fair game. Personally I don't see the difference between them and a 18 year old and if one was fair game then so should the other.
Anyways I thought the Dave joke was tasteless in the fact that it was directed at a very young lady and a young mother who did the right thing after doing the wrong thing. Who really wants nothing to do with the spot light not like celebs and what not.
