Right wing hypocrite calls for Letterman's firing

Should have seen this one coming.
Under fire for a risque joke last week, David Letterman has apologized to Gov. Sarah Palin and her supporters. But a group urging CBS to fire the host says it's still not enough.

"I'm glad he's acknowledged we're right," said John Ziegler, a creator of the film "Media Malpractice: How Obama Got Elected and Palin Was Targeted" and who this month began a new show on KGIL. "I think it's a good first step in the right direction, but I don't think it's enough." Part of the problem, he added, is that Letterman made a "horrendous attempt at an apology" last week, when he devoted several relatively light-hearted minutes to the controversy, invited Palin on his program and repeated the joke.

Ziegler said he was not sure what sanction Letterman should face, but options should include suspension and firing. The host could also donate to a charity of Gov. Palin's choice, he said. Meanwhile, the group is still planning a rally Tuesday outside the Ed Sullivan Theater in New York, where Letterman tapes his show.

So where was this asshole Ziegler when Don Imus was calling the Rutgers women's basketball team "nappy headed ho's?"

Well here's the kind of hypocritical right wing asshole John Ziegler is:
John Ziegler was fired Wednesday by WHAS Radio, but Thursday, Ziegler told WLKY NewsChannel 32's Abby Miller that his firing had nothing to do with the remarks he made about former Fox41 morning anchorwoman Darcie Divita.

Ziegler made comments last week about his private relationship with Divita, called her a liar and shared intimate details, Miller reported. He then went back on the air Tuesday and reported that the matter had been resolved, but was fired shortly before he was scheduled to go on the air Wednesday morning.

"To discuss the intimate details of a person who is not related to his job or any way, shape or fashion is totally inappropriate," [Divita's attorney Thomas]Clay said.

That was in 2003, six years latter he's a protector of the fairer sex. Utter nonsense.
