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.”

    No, Bristol is still a teenager. She was foolish and made mistake but forgivable. The 62 year-old man who has a dirty mouth and mind is not forgivable for he should know better. It is in enough a bad taste that men are now paid to gossip like women and crack jokes about women, to excuse them is worst.

    When does Bristol uses her mom’s fame for her own aggrandizement? What aggrandizement are you talking about? I sincerely hope you are not on drug. More so I hope you aren’t a man.

    Hey Rhonda, I believe 90% of the HOT women in Hollywood are liberals. Your statement is fail. Shut up please.

    I would like to see her apologize to young women across the country for contributing to a culture that says it’s OK to preach abstinence, rather than inform young people about birth control.

    He was dead wrong for saying that about her child, but she didn’t have to be kinda like a ***** to this guy that is interview her. I mean I know she mad. What mother wouldn’t be, but take out on Letterman.

    A poster wrote in another board that her relative was in the audience and reported that when Letterman told that joke, NOBODY laughed.
    It was recorded laughter. There was booing.

    I saw the infamous episode about A-Rod getting the daughter pregnant. IMO he was referring to the teenage daughter who got pregnant out of wedlock.

    Sarah Palin has no credibility. This woman does not practice what she preaches like lots of in the world christians. This woman could not even train her daughter to resist the physical urge to have out of wedlock sex. Then, she pretends Briston and Levi are getting married just to ensure her bid for Vice-President.

    These people are liars. Like Ms. Prejean(former Miss California), they say they are christians yet their behaviour does not bear witness to it.
    Ms. Prejean gets implants, poses semi-naked and then lies about the pictures intent. Please sin is sin. You can’t say you are living your life the way God commands and then lie when you are caught doing the opposite.

    None of us are perfec,t so own up to your sin and don’t lie to cover it, you’re just continuing to sin. Go and sin no more.

    Also, unfortunately, Letterman unwittingly gave her an opportunity to try to bolster her standing within the GOP. Those men can’t stand her and the women know she’s a hypocrit, but they won’t say it publicly.

    Palin also has bolstered Letterman’s ratings with her attempt to make a mountain out of a molehill.

    and the prize goes to anonymous. good comments all around.

    lol people laughed not when the joke was told the first time but the second time. people laughed. i know there are a lot of sadists out there, but people did laugh and those people are not all crazy.

    letterman doesn’t have to apologize. like i said previously palin as a mother has to apologize to her daughter for failing to inform her own daughter about safe sex. seriously. as a christian, i don’t understand how you can’t see the moral flaw there. you can’t do what she did then try to politicize your actions by trying to seem like you’ve bought into a message that you don’t support. bristol palin has become an adult because of her actions, even if her age belies that fact, but she is old enough to make decisions, and she shouldn’t be at her mothers whim all the time. seriously.

    that joke was not about the younger palin girl…because it is not common information that girl is having sex, whereas with the advent of her mother running for vp, all of bristol palins 411 has been put on blast from friends and enemies. if she didn’t want to be known she could have said no to her mom’s pr people, to her mom and dad, and would have shut her face/kept her face away from cameras. that’s the truth.

    dead topic.

    letterman wasnt attacking females and children in general, he was attacking HER and her family. but obviously she had to blow it completely out of proportion and incorporate sexism so she can get support from the public.

    the only comment that really offended females was the slight attendant joke, but she barely mentioned that.

    Since David Letterman is used to making jokes (“it’s just a joke”), how about a sexy joke involving one of Obama’s kids?

    lol. just wait for it. one of them will have to get pregnant and fit the sterotype of an unwed teen mother. actually no scratch that, chelsea and the bush girls also got huge flack, and so has megan mccain. it comes with the territory. and it’s smart to see that even smart adults agree with me. it doesn’t mean it’s right, the joke, and no one is saying the joke is alright, but it is a joke, made from a comedian (although that shouldn’t be an excuse) about a girl/family who have allowed their business to be in the public. i’m glad people get that, even palin should get that. SHE BROUGHT SH*T LIKE THIS UPON HERSELF, JUST LIKE SHE BROUGHT THE GOOD THINGS THAT HAS HAPPENED TO HER THUS FAR (DUE TO THE CAMPAIGN) UPON HERSELF. she nor they are victims…and it’s really lame to see her politicize this considering he didn’t say anything POLITICAL with that BAD joke. so all in all it’s entirely hilarious. dead topic.

    how entirely funny that when the hypocrisy is turned over the right and the left both call foul. it’s entirely stupid. it’s okay for cheney and limbaugh to say things that would be percieved as treason, yet when the stupid head leon penatta calls it out, lol it’s a big deal. are you kidding me. it’s only a big deal because people choose to make it. spare me the wasted time of news coverage that i get to see these idiot things. there are more important things going on in the world than this non-issue that has been taking up time on the media frequencies.

    Orchid, If one of the Obama girls ends up as a 17 year old unwed mother, she’s fair game. But the irony of an abstinance only preaching parent won’t be there. You do get that, don’t you?

    Anyone who saw the show and has a fraction of a brain KNOWS that the reference to “her daughter” was about Bristol, not the 14 year old. this is just Palin and her lemmings WAY over reacting and making something out of nothing. She’s a media ***** and will do anything to keep her name out there…even use her own children.

    It’s obvious to me that Letterman thought it was the 18-year old with SP at the game. He or his people didn’t do their homework or they would have known that SP had her 14-year old with her. You do get THAT, don’t you? It’s his own fault that he got into a bit of trouble.

    If one of Obama’s kids ends up pregnant at 17, I think her old man would understand, because his own mother conceived him when she was 17, but if Letterman made that joke about her, I would expect him to be angry. Letterman has no right to make that kind of joke at someone else’s daughter’s expense. He finally realized that, which is why he apologized! The jerk!

    Orchid Says:

    Forgot to add.

    Actually, it doesn’t matter which daughter SP had with her. Gentlemen simply don’t make that kind of joke about other people’s daughters!!!
    I was going to say, make that kind of joke about your own daughter, but since he has a son, I hope he will make a sexy joke about his wife soon! After all, “it’s only a joke, and I make thousands of them!”

  16. 216
    Orchid Says:

    There’s another theory. It’s possible that HE KNEW it was the 14year old at the game with SP, but being a Palin hater (which is his right) he made the joke, and when he found out it wasn’t a popular joke, he hid behind, “I thought it was Bristol, the 18year old with her mother.”

    I hope he knows now that even if it was the 18year old who was with SP at the game, that would have been a bad joke too.

    So, he has learned his lesson. He won’t be cracking ugly sexy jokes about other people’s daughters anymore. That’s for sure!

    David Letterman has a ******* SON, WHO WAS BORN OUT OF WEDLOCK!! and HIS WIFE UGLY AS HELL!!!!!!!!!!!! SHE is the ugliest woman, not to talk about himself who is an old, ugly looking man.
    Letterman’s jokes are not funny! He must be fired!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Why don’t we talk about his ******* son, who born out of wedlock? and his ugly 300 LB wife?

    Orchid Says:

    Annie, I’ve never seen a picture of Letterman’s wife. You are exaggerating, aren’t you! I can’t believe his wife is obese. Anyway, she can always lose weight. Maybe he likes big women. People have different taste!
