Sarah is grandstanding, but I'd love to see Todd Palin punch Letterman in the nose.


please, that is exactly what she is doing.

she knew what the "joke" was.......granted it was of poor taste but it is late night TV.........she decided to twist what the joke was about, make it national news.......for her own agenda.

Should a 65-year old comedian be making jokes about an 18-year old getting knocked up? Is it that much worse than 14?

The joke was about ARod just as much as Palins daughter as well.

I remember a few years ago who conservatives were railing against "PC"....now for some reason they are it's biggest supporters, although they are kind of twisting it to fit their own percieved slights these days.

There's a difference between PC and making a joke like that about an 18-year old whose only "crime" was being the daughter of someone famous.

his job is to make jokes of relevant people/issues. The Yankees and Palins meet the criteria. Palin's daughter got knocked up (who is now a legal adult)and the Palin's did choose to bring her oldest daughter into the spotlight (which is fine)......but don't get upset if a random late night shows uses her in a lame joke. Also, don't take the lame joke and twisted into something different for you own benefit. You, me, and ARod's grandma all understood the lame joke........Sarah Palin is twisting it for her own agenda. To argue differently is crazy.

to then try to paint a picture Letterman was making a joke a 14 yr old being raped.....and that Letterman is unsafe for children to be around is beyond stupid.......but stupid is what Palin does and is why Barack is in the WH......McCain should have had a backbone and stood up to the party and told them to open their eyes.

Seriously dude, quit playing the Rep vs. Democrat game.....

Crime?

There's no "crime".

A. Sarah Palin put her kids on the public stage, along with her pregnant daughters boyfriend, to let people know that even though her own daughter could not follow the wonderful idea of absistence, they were responsible enough to get married.

B. After the election, it becomes clear that no such thing was probably going to happen, the kids don't even like each other that much.

C. Both fuger and fugee sell their stories to tabloids for money and/or to clear their family name. Baby living in a single mom home, presumably with nannies that are already there to take care of the Downs Syndrome kid Sarah had because she got pregnant when she was too old, but thats just a guess.

D. ALL of this makes Bristol, who is an adult now, a legitimate target of parody and humor. The joke was not that funny, but that's it. There's nothing to be outraged about, the joke must have hit close to the mark to generate this much interest...and Letterman gets publicity.

hey, this has gotten 1000x more play because of Sarah's "outrage." Blame her mother for the exposure, it never would've been noticed otherwise.

I'm playing the common decency game. You guys are saying because it's politics, this 18-year old girl is fair game. Look at the man in the mirror.

Even Lenos lame jokes have to throw common decency out the window occasionally. Humor, and especially satire, has to throw stones.

Nice twisting of the facts. Now for reality...

1. Sarah Palin gets asked if she would like to be McCain's vice president. She accepts. Big day for Republican women and for people from Alaska.

2. Crap. Her 18-year old daughter screws up. Sharks go after her and Obama himself says lay off. Family is off limits.

3. At the convention, Palin has her daughter on stage, yes. What's she supposed to do?

4. After the election, the piece of crap who got her pregnant takes HIS story to the tabloids. What is the daughter supposed to do now? She returns fire.

5. Letterman decides this 18-year old is fair game, and screws up not knowing it was the 14-year old that was actually at the game. Oh well, David, now you know how it feels when someone makes a non-PC joke about minorities. Only they typically apologize, not continue to joke about it.

6. Palin grandstands on the issue. Uses it as political ammo to keep her name in the spotlight.


I don't feel sorry for Sarah Palin. She had her 15 minutes and its time to go away now. I feel sorry for the daughters. They don't deserve this scrutiny, for one, nor these cheap shots about their reputations.

The only place Sarah will go away to is my bedroom.

It's obvious to see that Sarah desperately wants to keep her children out of the limelight.

Why else would she continue this fake outrage with a nationally syndicated late night television personality...

Bullshit. I have seen the People magazine article to prove that Bristol is not interested in "fading away". She wants to keep putting herself out there, this will happen.

The other thing that you are missing from this is that the irony of the party that thinks that absistence is a reasonable argument for birth control selects Sarah Palin as VP and then expects everyone to say, "awww, her daughter is keeping the baby, how wonderful!" like that was the plan all along. It's one big cockup, and while I have some sympathy for what the poor young woman is going through, she had the choice not to care what people thought of her after the election, had the baby and led as private a life as possible - her boyfriends accusations should have been met in silence and through the courts and not in People. After that, she was indeed fair game for parody.
