    Why did CBS do this?

    I was watching NCIS...one of the few network programs I really LIKED. Notice the past tense.
    While two of the agents were knocking on the door of a woman suspect...she fired through the door not knowing it was Federal agents.
    They announced who they were and she put down the weapon.
    The comment from one agent (Denoso) was:
    "Who do you think you are? Sarah Palin???"

    So much for NCIS. I will never watch it again. Not because I am such a devotee of Ms. Palin, but because what was the purpose of that disrespectful comment.

    A woman who hunts and supports the 2nd Amendment was made to look like a scatter brain who shoots blindly though a door.

    I am going to email that station a complaint on this. It shows disrespect for all women who believe in our 2nd Amendment Rights and chose to be legal gun owners. Please join me in sending them a email on this. If we don't start complaining...it will continue.

    Tony always has a wise crack, that being said anyone whom enters the public limelight is fair game (except children). I don't believe it was an anti agenda, they have ratings to worry about.

    They merely chose her name because of her pro gun stance and her brief but present notoriety. JMO I like the show also.

    Come on. If the person had been shooting rabbits...or deer....or moose...or any game I could see it, BUT it was a woman shooting blindly though a door. THAT IS INSULTING TO ANY WOMAN WHO CHOOSES TO EXERCISE HER 2ND AMENDMENT RIGHTS. Maybe it is because I am a woman that I find it so disgusting. Maybe because you are not...it meant nothing to you.

    Sarah Palin represents the very class of people the government run media despises the most, conservatives, and any way they can disparage her they will.

    Had it been a male name I still would not have taken it that way. I watch it for the entertainment value ONLY. As I said before Tony is always making cracks and that's all I take them for.

    Using the male, female analysis equates to throwing the race card.

    Many shows spoof celebs and politicians all the time, watch Saturday Night Live. I thought their Palin spoofs were very funny because I am looking for entertainment and a laugh not political or social enlightenment. Letterman is most definitely grinding her into the dirt nightly, now that I agree is using his show to put her down.

    Sorry you are offended by it but I did not take it the same way.

    Malarkey! It was a political statement, period. A shot at both guns and the most popular Conservative Women in the U.S. today. I'll never watch a minute of it again.

    Brief but present notoriety? Which is it? It's been over a year with no end in sight. She's just warming up.
    I wish her well.

    Both NCIS programs are outstanding. Great writing, great characters, great acting. A good program won't conform 100% to any particular agenda. They're all over the place, just like the characters that are depicted.

    I understand what you are sayin', Spirit... but ya gotta leave a little leeway for satire, and be able to laugh at your side too... what if they pulled over a drunk driver and they made a Teddy Kennedy joke...? Broke up a liason between a hooker and john and made a Clinton joke...?

    I didn't see it, but it sounds like legitimate satire to me... JMO, YMMV...

    I laughed, just another Denoso line. I like the show and find it amusing.
