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.”

    @Rhonda: Wow not only are you ignorant, but you are racist. You are calling Letterman a bad person for making jokes… look in the mirror. Harvard doesn’t just hand out degrees (thank god or people like you would be running this country) Michelle earned EVERYTHING she got, don’t shoot someone’s education down because you can’t seem to get that far on your own.

    letterman is a piece of skum, lucky that a lot of idiots have watched his show and kept his boring show on the air,. if he had said that about ANY democrats’ politicians daughters and that would be cause for taking him off the air.

    Palin is an idiot and is only doing this for attention. If she’s the best the GOP has, they are in for a world of hurt.

    I want to see that loser say that to Todd Palins face about any of is children! He’ll knock all his teeth out so we dont have to look at decrepid smile.

    A real man would never have said that. A real man having accidentally said that would have apologized quickly knowing how degrading that comment was and is and moved on. A coward reads cue cards jokes that are degrading about women/girls, a coward does a 1/2 @sses apology. A coward hides amoungst his media buddies.

    However this is picking up steam and his cronies are starting to swing the knife.

    Bet Obama comes out and says something. I didnt vote for him, dont like him but he is a Dad of two little girls, and cough cough, just backstabbed the gay community and will throw Dave under the bus to deflect from his DOMA case.

    Wasnt it the prophet Obama who said families were off limits or was it just his?

    Why A-rod? Does he have issue with him? Why not Jeter, who is NY biggest s-l-u-t! No, to easy to take a shot at an spanish guy huh. I’d like to see A-rod slap him for that.

    Imus was fired for less remember that folks!

    Letterman like to do these things. Look how he treated his friend “Mccain”. He was going for ratings like the rest but got caught making a tastelss joke about women/girls. He just crossed the line.

    Now watch his pariahs , i mean peers of society back stab him.

    Hanna Says:

    Okay then. Dave should say the same exact joke using Obama’s daughter’s name. What’s fair is fair. All you idiots who think what he said is okay, then I guess it’s okay to say the SAME thing using an Obama daughter.

    Can anyone name another politician who it is acceptable to make jokes about the rape of her 14 year old daughter. I sure hope Malia doesn’t get knocked up, isn’t that funny? Letterman has become a creepy, mean man. He really seems to have it out for Sarah Palin. I did not realize how threatened liberal people are by beautiful, well spoken strong women who are conservative in their outlook. You see the anger towards Sarah and Carrie and other strong and beautiful (liberal women who are leaders are always so manly looking) are like a cross to a vampire. The women liberals admire are always “manly” look at Hillary, Sonya, Michelle Obama. Women who are feminine are destroyed like their some kind of evil. A conservative woman speaking her mind is mocked and ridiculed. Letterman’s wife is a good example, fat and ugly and manly, that’s how liberal men like their women.
    Carrie who? Sonya who?

    Letterman is just a jerk! He should certainly apologize. It was an ugly joke, even if it was the 18year old who was with her mother at that game.

    Kathy Says:

    Since Sarah was at the game with her 14 yr. old daughter, then why would Dave say a joke about the daughter who wasn’t even there ? That would make no sense. That creep knew what he was saying. Now he’s lying trying to get out of it.
    I hope Barry Hussein’s daughter gets a rape joke aimed at her too !

    I’m still waiting for this *****’s apology for thinking she was remotely qualified to be a heartbeat away from the presidency of the most powerful nation in the world. That was surely an insult to the intelligence of every American.

    Ha ha.

    You cannot bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift.

    You cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong.

    You cannot help the wage earner by pulling down the wage payer.

    You cannot further the brotherhood of man by encouraging class hatred.

    You cannot help the poor by destroying the rich.

    You cannot keep out of trouble by spending more than you earn.

    You cannot build character and courage by taking away man’s initiative and independence.

    You cannot help men permanently by doing for them what they could and should do for themselves.

    This was written by Abraham Lincoln. Obama, who likes to compare himself to President Lincoln, apparently cannot read.

    And Dave Letterman is a complete JERK. Come on, Dave ! Let’s hear a rape joke concerning Malia Obama ! Now THAT would be FUNNY !!!!

    78 hmr @ 06/12/2009 at 4:58 pm 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!
    That was a campaign for office. SP and DL are not campaigning for office. DL just cracked an ugly joke for which he should apologize!
    I think he knows it.

    youallneedjesus Says:

    Dave should just apologize to Willow publicly and let this go away. He was wrong, man up and move along.

    I have no objection to a Conservative woman speaking her mind, but they often come off as bigoted, shallow or not intelligent. That is the reason why people don’t listen to them or want to hear what they have to say. I thought Palin was horrible during the Presidential campaign. John McCain shot himself in the foot with that selection. Women would have rallied around her, had she come off as someone capable of leading the free world. She didn’t come off as someone capable of leading the free world and managed to alienate most women.

    Absolutely unbelievable anyone would find it acceptable for him to make such vulgar “jokes” of ANY woman. Whether she 14 or 144!
    Who cares he “thought it was her 18 year old daughter”

    This makes it acceptable in the public eye. I pray this is not true.
    I do not watch Letterman. Definitely wouldn’t now. As a matter of fact, if indeed I do see him on any talk show, in any magazine– I would make it a point to not view or purchase such garbage.

    I wonder how he would feel if anyone had made such a nasty comment about his child? Gee, things that make ya go hmmmm.

    Some things are off limit and in very poor taste. He has no class.
    You are a nasty man Letterman. Grow some manners.

    As far as her “getting pregnant” as another ignorant poster comments.
    “opens her up to criticism” are you kidding? Open your closet poster.
    I’d LOVE to see your skeletons. People who live in glass houses should NOT throw stones.

    Palin, you are dead on right. He was completely in the wrong.

    I agree! He’s lying to get out of it. What a jerk! He is used to making jokes at other people’s expense, but this was going too far.

    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.


    Great post! Perfectly said! Letterman should apologize and stop wasting everybody’s time.

    Kaitlyn Says:

    Hey Mertz – Well done. You have said everything I would have said, and probably more eloquently. Sarah Palin is keeping this admittedly tasteless joke alive and well. Dave had apologized, we’ve all moved on. I saw the replay; David was clearly referring to Bristol. No mention of Willow, or rape. Palin needs to move on. She’s gotten more than enough mileage out of whoring out her children for public consumption.

    This is not about Party affiliation. Chelsea Clinton was called called ugly, homely, buck-toothed – it was merciless. She turned into a swan who has grace and smarts. The Bush girls were foddder for every tabloid, for basically acting like 90% of college students, yet they have allso turned into responsible, employed adults.

    Oh and Rhonda, you scare me!

    Dread not Says:

    - It was a JOKE told on LATE NIGHT TELEVISON! LATE NIGHT! Not in prime time, but LATE NIGHT! The word rape never crossed Dave’s lips. You can read into the joke what you want. Comedians use current events as fodder for jokes. Palin being in New York was perfect fodder, hence the joke. Most people knew he meant Bristol. And knowing A-Rod and his propensity to lie and cheat, Palin should keep an eye on her daughter during the seventh inning stretch, whatever age she is.


    I think Sarah’s ego got bruised because Dave didn’t insinuate that Gov. Palin would be the one A-Rod would try to knock up! There’s a joke in here about watered down gene pools, but with this crowd, it might go over poorly.

    people did the same thing with chelsea clinton…and it wasn’t right then, and it isn’t right now. i’m sure kids don’t ask for this as proxy of their parent’s being politicians, but you are in the limelight. it’s fair game. it’s crass, crude, w/e…but if you don’t want things to be said keep quite and keep away from the cameras. really.
