David Letterman Halfway Apologizes To Sarah Palin

June 11th, 2009 // 6 Comments

Cracking jokes about Sarah Palin‘s trip to New York, David Letterman implied that during her visit, Palin’s daughter “was knocked up” by Yankees slugger Alex Rodriguez. In response, the Alaskan governor cited outrage at the “sexually perverted comments” Letterman made concerning her 14-year-old daughter, Willow Palin.

On his show, David clarified that he was referring to Palin’s daughter, 18-year-old Bristol Palin, who recently gave birth to her first child and said “they’re just jokes.” Letterman read aloud Todd Palin‘s response on Facebook, “Any ‘jokes’ about raping my 14-year-old are despicable. Alaskans know it and I believe the rest of the world knows it, too.”

He called the quips the “borderline,” “in questionable taste” and intended to obtain “cheap laughs.” Dave wrapped up the subject by inviting Sarah and her husband to appear on the show. Let’s hope this isn’t the last we hear of this feud! We’re due for a good one.

    David Letterman and his staff knew perfectly well it was Willow and not Bristol at the baseball game and that they were making their joke about Willow.

    David’s humor has gotten as stale as his breath. I always hated how he slobbered over the female guests like a male chauvinist. They play off his sexist humor as curmudgeonly but it has just gotten boring.

    Too bad this isn’t this asshole’s last show. He is old, withered and tired. He has no business joking about a 14-year old child. PIG. He’s never been funny and still isn’t.

    I agree with both comments above.

    David Letterman was funny once upon a time, but is now just a washed-up, bitter old man. His retirement is LONG overdue.

    Letterman didn’t know that it was Willow and not Bristol at the game. That doesn’t excuse such a coarse and repugnant “joke.” I’m no fan of S. Palin — quite the opposite. But Dave walked right into this one. Kids are off limits! Period!

    Sarah Palin is evil incarnate and Dave can joke about her all he wants. I see the freepers have invaded this board. She used her kids to get where she is so as far as anyone with a brain is concerned, they are open game. What an awful woman she is. Milking this for more publicity. Makes me sick. What won’t the Republicans do to keep their evil going?

    I found this fascinating quote today:

    …because nobody EVER made jokes about Chelsea Clinton, right, Michelle?  Oh, wait…The Jovial One, DEEP BRAIN DIARY, Jun 2009
