Sarah Palin To David Letterman: Say Sorry!

Sarah Palin To David Letterman: Say Sorry!

Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin is asking that Late Night host David Letterman apologize for “crossing the line” when he joked about one of her daughters.

Letterman insists he was talking about Palin‘s daughter Bristol, 18, not Willow, 14, when he joked Monday that on a recent Palin family visit to NYC “during the seventh inning, her daughter was knocked up by Alex Rodriguez.”

“I would like to see him apologize to young women across the country [for contributing to a culture] that says it’s OK to talk about statutory rape,” Palin told Today. “It’s not cool; it’s not funny.”

    It is a little hypocritical to say leave my daughters alone and keep them out of the lime light – when you bring them on stage in front of millions. And one has been repeatedly featured on the front of People, US Weekly, etc by her own choosing. If you want to be out of the lime light – stay out of the lime light! (And give back the money I am sured those magazines paid you…)

    Just read thousands of flight attendants picketed CBS, but can’t find a thing about it on the state owned media. One sign said, you know the difference between a regular flight attendant and a ****** one—-LIPSTICK! how funny!

    She has maybe forgotten that during her campaign, her supporters would call Obama, “Osama!”

    She never asked them to quit these antics, that only support bigotry in this country. So she is not the most indicated person to protest offensive, out of line comments!

    The apology belongs to Palin’s daughter. She is the one who went to the game. So the joke is publicly about her. Whether Dave mistakenly referenced her or not is not the point. SHE was referenced. Dave is not stupid nor is he unaware of the the news. He knows which daughter is which and he knows the names of the daughters.
    But even if I take Dave at his word that he made a mistake, the mistake was made and it came out as a joke about a 14 year old. How is it that everyone should know Dave made a mistake? How is it obvious? That’s quite a biased interpretation.
    She doesn’t need to be the butt of his sexist jokes. For that matter neither does any 18 year old. Geez. I cannot believe the misogyny directed toward an 18/19 year old because she and her boyfriend got pregnant. Am I seriously hearing that people believe this makes her fair game for any sexual inuendo? I am an ultra liberal feminist and I cannot believe people can’t see why this is wrong. Of course, her mother is standing up for her and demanding an apology. No mother needs a PR person to urge her to do this. Certainly not some outspoken politician. The one dragging this out is Dave for not immediately offering an apology to her as soon as he realized his mistake.
    Stop trying to make this liberal vs. conservative or Democrat vs. Republican. That is not what is about. It’s about a grown man making a sexually insulting laced joke about a 14 year old.
    Dave needs to be a man and make a sincere and complete apology without any excuses.

    To all the perverts who support Letterman and bash Palin for standing up for decency and women: You are dirty old men that women (especially young women) should stay away from. You let your p ___ do the talking and you brains are dead.

    Cherie Says:

    I can’t stand Palin, but Letterman’s joke was out of line. And he wasn’t talking about Sarah’s daughter, Bristol. The joke was in reference to Palin and her family taking in a baseball game. The daughter at the game? Willow.

    I am a long-time Letterman viewer, but he went too far on this one. He should just sincerely apologize and let it die. He’s giving Palin too much publicity.

    David letterman was WRONG, should be a man say sorry and NEVER JOKE ABOUT PALIN AGAIN!!!! Why dosen’t he do Obamma family jokes, Michelle was in New York a week ago didn’t A-rod, or Spitzer, go for her? What is Letterman Raceist? Laur and Couric are no better, they should all STFU!

    Bristol has been in the media constantly – on FOX news, in People’s Magazine several times, including a cover story – whom do you really think David Letterman was talking about? I didn’t hear anyone get upset with all of the Monica Lewinski jokes. Sorry Palin, your daughter Bristol who is being pawned off as the Abstinance Queen had a party girl life, and got knocked up. That’s a fact. Megan McCain gets picked on, Chelsea Clinton got picked on (when she was only like 12 or 14). If you can’t take the heat, get out of the media spotlight!

    SERIOUSLY? This from a woman who used to make rape victims pay for their own rape kits? I guess rape is only serious when it involves one of her kids and she has the chance to stick her stupid, uneducated mug on television.

    @ Rhonda,

    Palin is not a threat to someone like Obama, because had she been..she would have helped McCain win the election. Obama made it to where he is on his own accord. He was not brought in to get a token vote. Had Palin tried to run for the Presidency by herself, that woman would have gotten plasterd. She is waaaaaay out of her league and it is more then apperent by her stooping to the level of going on national tv to fight with a latenight talk show host. She needs to be more worried about Governing her state instead of this mess. All she needed to do was have her people issue a statement and thats it. Telling Letterman to apologize? Wh the hell does she think she is?

    You sound very bitter and jelous. Trying to talk about Michelle Obama when she is ten times more intellegent then YOU or Palin will ever be. All those nasty attacks that Republicans said about Michelle and all she did was dust them off and not even give those comments the time of day. And comparing Hillary Clinton to Palin is like comparing and Igloo to an Empire State building…there is no comparison. Hillary would rip that woman to shreds in a debate. Please get over the fact that your side lost and move on with your life…along with Palin with her phony outrage. You want to know whats really innappropriate? A woman trying to lie her way into the White House by faking that she actually knows something about the world.

    So tell us dear aida, how does Letterman’s joke about ARod knocking up her daughter in the 7th inning, work? Did he hop on a flight to Alaska? Willow was the daughter in attendance. He and his writer’s knew it. He didn’t use that excuse until two days later. He got caught in a liberal hissy-fit. Suspend belief if you want, but he took a shot at a kid. But all of that aside, why does a pregnant teen become a target for you and your friends because her mom ran for office? No doubt you and your friends are waiting eagerly for Letterman to crack on Malia and Sasha? After all, they “deserve” it too by your standard.

    Bill Says:

    Palin seems to be very sanctimonious now concerning teenage sexual activity, but how protective was she when Bristol Palin was having sex as an underage minor? I remember when Sarah Palin was advocating abstinence-only education during her 2006 governors race, but just how well did that prove to be sound logic considering the birth of her grandson Tripp Johnston by her underage daughter?

    Sarah Palin also went one step further in her hypocrisy in that she used her line-item veto to slash funding for a state program in Alaska benefiting teen mothers who were in need of a place to live.She cut the funding for the Covenant House Alaska program by over one million dollars. The lesson learned there is not every unwed teen Mother has the financial support from a parent who is governor of a state.

    So David letterman made a joke concerning her daughter, get over it,Palin did everything to set herself up for the jokes.It is the past hypocrisy of Palin that Letterman is targeting and Palin knows it,it has NOTHING to do with Letterman promoting teenage promiscuity with any adult or any person. This is just another opportunity for Sarah Palin to look like the poor victim and wear her victimhood crown with relish.

    Is the jokes distasteful, sure they are, however Palin is taking the jokes out of context to create the controversy and attention she so desperately desires and feeds off of. I didn’t like the nature of the jokes myself but to take them out of context is in itself untruthful and self aggrandizing.

    I haven’t made it through all of these comments, but here I go. It is a well-established fact that Letterman hates people unless he’s known them forever and suck his wang occasionally (metaphorically). He’s going to say pissy things. I’d be pissed, too, if he made that comment about my daughter. Palin has every right to be upset.

    Why doesn’t Letterman talk about the Obama’s kids in a sexual manner but he decided to jump on the Palin’s 14 year old daughter. Him The gap tooth **** decided to go the other way and get on the hate the GOP wagon again.But throw in raping small underage kids he thinks it is funny. he is a big saggy ball schmuck.

    Dread not Says:

    Sarah Palin finds yet another opportunity to horrify America with her presence. Being that, Bristol is the one who got pregnant and is OBVIOUSLY sexually active, I think it’s fair to give, Letterman the benefit of the doubt when he says he was talking about the older Palin daughter. The Alaskan Governor and husband Todd, wore out their copy of, Nailin’ Palin. So what does she do? Seizes another opportunity to regain attention. Why? Evidently she wants EVEN MORE adult movie spoofs produced about her, probably titled, “I Did A Rod; Doin’ It Doggie Style.” Maybe, “Thunda on The Tundra” somethin’ like that. Look, Sarah basically accused Letterman of being perverted and being in poor taste. If anyone would know about perversions and poor taste, you get the feeling, the Alaskan Governor would. She fired back that Letterman couldn’t be trusted around a 14 year old girl. THAT was in poor taste, and a little perverted, IMO.

    @Rhonda: Are you seriously claiming that two extremely strong women such as Michelle and Hillary are riding the “shirttails” of Barack and Bill? Do your research you ignorant conservative woman! Those two women are unbelievably smart, almost above their husbands…if you want to talk women riding the shirttails of their husband look at Barbara Bush or Laura Bush…hell Palin too. At least Hillary and Michelle were educated at IVY LEAGUE institutions and have POST-GRADUATE DEGREES!! What does Palin have? Oh right, a BS in journalism.
