Letterman, Politics and Palin

In case you live under a rock or only listen to the anti-Palin Left you may not have heard that sexagenarian David Letterman has called Sarah Palin a slut and made a kiddie porn comment about Palin’s 14 year old daughter being knocked up by Yankee player Alex Rodriguez.

Amazingly the Barack Hussein Obama channel … err … I mean MSNBC attempted to dilute Letterman’s character assassination of Palin and the kiddie porn joke about Willow Palin and Alex Rodriguez. In an interview with Contessa of MSNBC, John Ziegler pointed out the evil of Letterman. When Ziegler began to be hostile about MSNBC this Contessa chick actually said she was offended by Ziegler and cut him off and specifically told the audio/visual guys to cut Ziegler’s mike. Imagine that. Contessa cuts Ziegler off after lambasting MSNBC coverage of Letterman’s kiddie porn comment.

You can catch Governor Palin’s comment about David Letterman in an interview that radio talk radio man Ziegler did HERE.

There is a social blog network on Ning that has a group called Team Sarah.
Within that group is a blog post encouraging people to write to CBS to complain about Letterman’s inappropriate to kiddie porn comments. I encourage you to read it and participate according to the simple information made available to pummel CBS.

There is the sense that Letterman won’t be chastised by CBS because he is such a cash cow for the network. These people encourage a boycott of CBS or CBS sponsors to make a point. Personally I find it more cathartic to express my feelings. Which ever the case please do something to let Letterman know he stepped over the line.

I was watching FOX and Friends this morning and viewed what was supposed to be a Letterman apology.

"We were, as we often do, making jokes about people in the news and we made some jokes about Sarah Palin and her daughter, the 18-year-old girl, who is — her name is Bristol, that’s right, and so, then, now they’re upset with me," Letterman said. "These are not jokes made about her 14-year-old daughter. I would never, never make jokes about raping or having sex of any description with a 14-year-old girl. I mean, look at my record. It has never happened. I don’t think it’s funny. I would never think it was funny. I wouldn’t put it in a joke…"

"… Gov. Palin, if you’re watching, I would like you to consider coming to New York City — even Todd — as my guests, or leave Todd at home. I’d love to have you on the show. It’d be exciting. All right, so there, I hope I’ve cleared part of this up. Am I guilty of poor taste? Yes. Did I suggest that it was okay for her 14-year-old daughter to be having promiscuous sex? No."
(FOX News)

Oops! Letterman is saying he didn’t mean the kiddie porn comment about Willow and Alex Rodriguez. NO! NO! Letterman meant that single unwed 19 year old mother Bristol Palin would be getting “knocked up” by Alex Rodriguez.

Did I miss something? Was this an apology? It sounds more like a justification for the “slut” comments about Governor Palin and inappropriate sex comments about the Palin’s daughter Bristol. So it is okay now to make crude sex comments about a politician’s daughter because she is over the age of 18?

I wonder what would happen if Rush Limbaugh, Michael Savage any Conservative spokesman or comedian would make crude sex comments about President Obama’s girls?

I will tell you what would happen. There would be such a huge MSM clamor to end the careers of anyone that would dare to make sexual innuendos about the President’s children or his wife Michelle for that matter. Governor Palin may not be President BUT she is a Governor of a State in the Union of the United States of America.

Letterman needs to get a spank’ in!
