David Letterman’s Pathetic Apology Way Too Late … I Take Full Responsibility for Bristol/Willow Palin Knocked Up Joke … Sexist, Creepy Pig
David Letterman … YOU ARE THE JOKE … and you need to be fired.
The whole joke and incident was just creepy.
What took you so long, a sincere apology would have been done immediately, not a week later after pressure came to bear against you. We all know what his first reaction was to the incident. Since when is it ok to cross the line and go after a child of a politician?

Letterman, a onetime successful comedian has sunk to desperate
levels. Overcome with apparent hate for all things Conservative,
this joker is grasping for straws. He claims to ‘regret’ many
of his scripted attempts at humor, but, needs to apologize
to the Palin family directly, and to all the women of the world
for chauvinistic statements he considers ‘Funny’!
It took David Letterman a week to realize that it was inappropriate and not funny to wish a 14 year old girl pregnant. Because it is really funny that you make a joke regarding Sarah Palin’s 14 year old daughter Willow and that she get “knocked up” by Alex Rodriguez. And no, we don’t buy the excuse that, you did not know. Frankly, you would not have cared as long as your hateful remarks were made against a Republican. In this case the child of a Republican.
Now David Letterman apologizes? Suddenly the late night talk show has been takes “full responsibility for his actions.” What happened to the comment that Sarah Palin needs to get a sense of humor? How come Letterman did not get the “Don Imus Nappy Hair” treatment?
Michelle Malkin best analyzes the pervs apology or as she referred to it as his half-assed apology. His apology was for the delivery of the joke, not it’s content?
Notice that he’s apologizing for the execution of the joke. In other words: If only he had written it more clearly to take aim at Bristol instead of Willow, he wouldn’t have been misunderstood. And he wouldn’t be under the gun having to say he’s sorry for creating the wrong “perception.” He’s sorry he didn’t pull it off better.
We have said this for years and liberals just don’t get it. What makes a joke funny is … it has to be funny, not vicious and mean. A long time ago David Letterman stopped being funny and started being a mean spirited liberal activist.
Protein Wisdom has the sort of apology. As Flopping Aces states, the perv should go. So when can we expect the Late Night Talk Show host to provide equal time and go after the children of Barack Obama or Joe Biden, hmm? The apology was done by Letterman because he felt he had to. However, the fact remains that David Letterman needs to be fired.
EXIT QUESTION: What is worse, Don Imus’ “nappy headed hoes” comment regarding the college aged Rutgers Basketball team or David Letterman’s “knocked up” hate regarding 14 year old Willow Palin? Imus was fired from his gig. What is CBS waiting for with David Letterman? Or is it ok to make comments that underage, minor, 14 year old girls should be raped and impregnated by 34 year old man? Sounds like the same excuses that IMUS made. The difference is that they were made to get at Republican Sarah Palin, so in the eyes of CBS and MSM, that’s ok.
“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.”
