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.”

    This is why comparison’s to other daughters are not valid. There is no double standard here. Obama’s daughters are underage, Bristol Palin is NOT. Obama’s daughters don’t have sex with white trash bozos. Bristol Palin does. Obama’s daughters don’t forget protection during sex and get knocked up. Bristol does. Because she’s ******.

    So she opened herself up to this kind of joke….because she got herself knocked up by not using protection. It’s true.

    OHH I’m glad someone mentioned this: during the election when Obama had approved Sexual Awareness classes for elementary school kids – to help them know about bad touch and good touch, etc – McCain and Palin did mention that Obama was trying to teach sex to minors. I remember that. And she said he was a terrorist. So if it’s good for the goose…….I think this is so overblown and Palin is taking us all for a very dumb ride!

    She’d better STFU though it may already be too late. I think he could sue her for slander at this point, and while I sure wouldn’t blame him for it I don’t think he’ll do it. He’ll have too much fun keeping to the high road.

    E @ 06/12/2009 at 8:13 pm Sarah Palin pimped her kids like Kate Gosselin during the campaign and sought freebies

    ###############
    This is what ALL politicians do during a campaign. It is not “pimping” to include your families in your campaigns.
    .
    Your exaggeration doesn’t contribute to this discussion.

    kat @ 06/12/2009 at 6:06 pm SERIOUSLY? This from a woman who used to make rape victims pay for their own rape kits?

    Let this go. This was proven to be untrue.

    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.

    ##############
    Jesus! Are we going to run the campaign again? For the record I was a Hillary girl and not a Palin supporter. However, I took the time to find out the truth about things. Perhaps you should try doing that.
    .
    The funds for the programs you cite were not slashed. In fact I believe they received increased funding. The funding requests for the new budget were cut. That is a big difference. During the campaign I carefully went over the budgets looking for ammunition against the repubs. Unfortunately you bought into some of the falsehoods peddled. Not giving an organization or a program all the increases they want for the next fiscal year does not equal a budge cut. The job of governor is to balance a budget and not all funding requests can be approved at the levels so requested. There are other arguments to make in this regard but not by providing false accusations.
    .
    None of which has anything to do with whether a parent should stand by silently while their daughter is dragged into some comedian’s routine.

    Get over it Palin. That is NOT what he suggested at all, and you have lied about your daughter and her lying boyfriend and HIS family from the start. He is an arrogant scumbag and loves the attention as much as his family does. The problem is, like the Gosslin family, their 15 second’s ( yes, second’s ) was up the minute his nasty face was on the t.v. screen with his half crooked self-absorbed smile, always trying to find himself on the television screen.
    Your daughter is no better. All of you need to get a life, and move on. We are tired of all of you, and your problems are no different than any one else’s.

    Comedians have a long history of pushing boundaries, both male and female comedians. Lettermans jokes are directed at the hypocrisy of Sarah Palin promoting abstinence only sex education, and encouraging her daughter ( who was pregnant as a underage teen) to do the same. His jokes were directed at exposing Palin as coming off as a complete living contradiction in her own family affairs,the jokes had nothing to do with promoting underage sex, something that anyone knows if they have spent any time viewing letterman. Do I find the jokes to be distasteful, sure I do,however I don’t believe that the jokes were promoting any unethical behavior between under aged girls and adults or even teen girls and other teens their age.

    Southpark does the same thing in many of their episodes and no one is outraged and demanding that the creators of southpark apologize. Why, because it’s called comedy and not to be taken literally. Sarah Palin suggesting that the self esteem of a girl or a woman depends on what a comedian says is beyond comical itself.

    I still haven’t witnessed one person who can explain how the jokes he repeated “promoted” sex with under-aged girls, they were more of a put down of that kind of behavior than anything else. By the way if there is anyone out there who’s self esteem depends on what letterman says or does not say, I would suggest they see a psychologist.

    Letterman crossed the line talking about a person’s children 14 or 18 yrs old pregnant or not. To me that is seeking cheap laughs from the sewer.Any person who has a daughter should not have have to listen to a joke made on a national TV network about some baseball player having sex with their daughter, whether its Sarah Palin, Barrack Obama, Bill Clinton or any other public or private individual .Children should be off limits to any comedian.I don’t car what someone thinks about their parents their children should be off limits period for any joke especially trashy ones

    and yet she doesn’t mention the contributing to the american culture of young girls being knocked up!

    Bill Says:

    I’m not understanding the “should not have had to listen to a joke ” part of your post, did someone force the Palins to watch David Letterman? So I’m to take it that Sarah Palin never anticipated that her personal life would be scrutinized during and after her campaign run to be vice president of the United States? Seems to me that she openly invited people into her personal life which she understood would include her family, and she is outraged at what a comedian would say? That being said I do agree that their children should be off limits although I’m not sure that the 18 year old daughter is considered a child. I remember SNL running a skit suggesting that Tod Palin was incestuous with his daughters , I didn’t hear a word from Sarah Palin about that, matter of fact she herself appeared on SNL, where was her outrage then? She seemed to be under the impression at that time that comedy was made in jest and was not to be taken literally.

    Beeotch really needs to go away. Okay so alot of people got offended by the stupid joke but by all means it was not about raping underage girls. Palin is delusional, I think that most people think that she has gone a little overboard about this. Letterman apologized and that should be the end of it. But no Ms. Moose wan’ts to continue the charade. The Republican party hates her, they don’t want to be near her with a l0 ft pole, they know how dumb she is. But they do want to use her to raise money. By the way alot of people show up to see her, at rallies, but it’s because they want to see a freak. She knows how to rally the hateful and the misinformed.

    Bill Says:

    Sarah Palin appeared on SNL one month after SNL ran a skit suggesting that Todd Palin was incestuous with his daughters. So she helped boost the ratings of SNL after that ,and now she is outraged at David Letterman and says she would never appear on his program. Just a little inconsistent there I would say, or perhaps this is all attention seeking?

    Brooke Says:

    Palin, Palin, Palin, when will she go away? David Letterman didn’t say A-Rod raped her 14-year-old daughter, I’m sure he was probably referring to A-Rod’s recent promiscuity and Bristol’s inabilitiy to use a condom.

    While I think it was in bad taste… that’s comedy.

    Cara Says:

    Not the best joke on his behalf (came out of his mouth entirely twisted) but Palin is a twisted liar who needs to find a deep dark Alaskan cave and crawl into it with the family she hawked for votes throughout the three or four months while on the political stage. She’s done enough damage in the lower 48 States to last a century…what’s truly amazing is the people of Alaska could vote someone into office who cannot speak or structure a complete sentence in the English language. One would have to be desperate for a social life to pay money to attend one of her events and/or listen to her ignorant gibberish. She along with Bush and Cheney have damaged the Republican Party…all nut cases.

    Dave was wrong no matter who he said it about. Every woman should be angry. He would have never saw the “humor” in remarks like this about his wife or son. There was no respect here at all.

    I am not a fan of Sarah Palin at all… and I’m a huge fan of David Letterman… But actually I’m siding with the governor here and couldn’t agree with her more. In politics… family should be off limits.

    Sam Says:

    Hold your Liberal and Conservative platforms.You Elizabeth HasslebeckRepublican cheerleaders, Dave was making a joke about Palinand her famous daughter ,Bristol. However, she was not at the game.Bad staff checkers at Dave’s show.The joke was a poor taste one,kind of funny, could have done wihtout.Had he only said, Bristol, then what. I saw Hasselbeck on The View who said all kids should be off limits. Yeah, you Conservatives ,like her throw up the Obama girls.DIFFERENCE- the Obama girls are kids and after The Obamas had them in one interview, which was really really bad, they figured it out-no interviews etc.about the girls. Bristol Palin is agrown adult woman famous in her own right as spokesperson for teen moms, Candis shoes girl,and People mag interview and cover story.
    Get off your false high moralground.Liberals, Dave could have left out the joke because the #1sin is it was not that funny.

    BTW,Liberal and Republicans, our countryis going to hell in a handbasket.China OWNS theUSA>We answernto them. They have us on the tip of the little finger.We are in a war we cannot ever wintrying to change a culture that has ebben consisitent for thousands ofnyears.Ummm,do yousee Kuwait,Saidi Arabia,UnitedEmirates, Jordan,Dubai, helping us or taking up. No.Why?The Middle East sticks together. Our majorUS companieslike car companies are getting owned by foreigners( Fiat of Italy is buying Chrsyler)…no more GM.The list goes on.
