Quite a lot of what he says is funny.
I guess it is a matter of perspective.

There is so much going on in the world right now, I don't get why he or his writers would feel the need to dig up content that is so yesterday.

Usually these guys have no end of jokes about the current relevant politicians of the day, I guess Obama and his admin are off limits?

Pretty sad really. I guess Johnny new.............

You're too late. We already have been bombarded by the press every time the Obama's go out for Booty Night.


Thank you for not only proving my exact point, but also providing the unintentional joke of the day

Good for you. What you get out of the First Amendment is the right to say caca-poopoo. To me, there's much more than that.

Common decency is what's missing with Letterman. The excuse that he "didn't know" that Willow was at the game is BS and just his way of wiggling out of his trash mouth. He is nothing more than a 62 year old pervert that probably needs a bottle of Viagra before he can attempt to rape any of his fetishes.


No need to reply to this....there are no facts to refute...only biased slander and personal speculation.

I can't beleive I replied twice in this thread....I'm disappointed in myself.....must be the booze.....enjoy your heated debate lol that has nothing to do with what's really happening the world......outta here

I believe I can offer a simple solution to appease both sides.

Letterman should keep his mouth closed and Palin's daughters should keep their legs closed, this will all be solved.

Hey I'm a freakin' Life Coach all of a sudden.

But seriously, and on topic:
As an adult, I did not find the joke offensive given the context of late-night TV.

Regards...KK

So true!

It makes you wonder if anyone actually watches Craig Ferguson, the guy who comes on after him. I love Craig, but he says a LOT more sexually oriented things in one night than Dave does in a week.

Edit to add: I know that teen pregnancy is a lot more than just "keep your legs shut." I was fed abstinence-only crap when I was in school (I graduated in 2008), and it didn't work for most of the 2200 kids in my school. I also know that it takes two to tango, so to speak, so its not 100% a problem for females.

I would wager that there would be a lot more screaming from the liberals if sicko Letterman had replaced Sarah Palin's daughter with one of Obama's daughters.
This is just another proof of how sick and immoral the liberal left is when it comes to Hollywood and the "entertainment" (not) field.
The left has done everything it can to destroy any sense of morality and decency in this country.
How many of the people defending this sick pervert would still defend him if it were THEIR daughter that he made the joke about?

Wow, it sounds like you're rehearsing to be one of Letterman's writers...you are, aren't you?
That was comedy gold. If you carry on like that you've got a huge career ahead of you

Yeah, the problem is that you can't joke about fourteen year olds dancing the horizontal mambo with Religious Conservatives...

OMG! 14 year olds can have the sex!

This can't be funny. I mean, the irony of both Palin's daughter's getting an illegitimate bun bump isn't funny in the least or doesn't prod at her parenting.... or even that Alaska has a rather high incident of Teen Pregnancy.

But then I'm Alaskan, and I find the joke funny if not riotously accurate, even if it was a mis-statement meant for Bristol.

Oh, and also, Moralists should shut the hell up about jokes involving sex, you vanilla missionary-position wingbats.

Wouldnt happen. The liberals arent near as defensive about things,
and the Obamas have alot more class!

Once again, the apple doesn't fall too far from the tree here. Um, ya.
Palin asked for it when she chose politics.
The daughter with the nascar name asked for it when she played doctor.
If letterman made a joke about my daughter, that would just mean I'm famous!
I dont have any kids. Subject more of them to this world?
Now thats funny! Hahahahahah
Once again, wouldn't happen. Sorry professor.
More than not I agree with you, but not this time.
It was just a joke for cryin out loud, a poor tasteless one but
a joke nonetheless.
Good to see you still kickin' around on here!

I suppose the thread is done for now anyway.
Let the partisan games begin....

Probably not, because then it wouldn't be insulting or funny, it would just be plain weird. Neither of Obama's kids are abstinence-only-educated single teenage mothers. It would just be confusing.

Ah, morals. The right is so quick to throw that word around, you'd think they have some. Tell me, Mr. Conservative, what's worse? Having someone not involved in running the country telling a flop joke on a late-night TV show, or having the man placed in charge of defending it authorizing sexual humiliation on guilty-until-proven-innocent foreigners? Yeah, it's the left who's causing all this moral degradation, I'm sure of it.

Right. Rage on about decency all you want, but how many democrats have been involved in gay sex scandals with teenage boys? Just because you say you have moral superiority doesn't mean you actually have it.

Tell me again what classifies him as a pervert? It was a damn joke. He's a comedian, not a child molester.

I can't believe this thread is still going. What is it with you right-wing nuts?
Letterman has already admitted he thought it was her 18 year old daughter she was at the game with, but you guys are still harping on about it? Don't want to let the truth get in the way of your righteous indignation?

He made a mistake - can any of you honestly say you've never made a mistake?

Let's have a theorectical look at how it may have happened...

(In the writer's room)

Dave: So, what's in the news then?

Writer 1: Sarah Palin was at the game with her daughter...

Dave: Oh really?

Writer 2: Hey...let's say she got knocked up again...by Alex Rodriguez!

(all laugh)

Dave: Great, we'll use it. Next joke please!

The guy isn't CNN or MSNBC, he doesn't have to check his facts. I'd say that makes him more like FOX so I'm surprised you guys don't love every word he says!

Well you just called him an impotent old pervert rapist based on absolutely nothing - where's your common decency? Plus the fact that the joke itself makes it bleeding obvious he meant the other daughter - it doesn't make any sense otherwise. The guy has been doing this a long time, I think he'll know by now that making sexually oriented jokes about minors may be detrimental to his career.

Why would a Letterman joke(of no taste) make you wish anything bad on a state? Have you not noticed how bad TN is doing? It was a 'right' state in the election.

Those were right wing rumors far as I know. Any legitimate source to back that up? Mark Foley and people within the Reagan administration were certainly screwing or trying to screw underage males. I think the point here was the hypocrisy of the right (the anti-gay morally superior right), not the actual details of the scandals.

BTW, I know this is totally off topic, I await a scolding.

I said underage boys. Not male escorts. Huge difference.

but imus can lose his job

Imus lost his job because he repeatedly said racist and homophobic things. I agree with the man's freedom of speech, but good grief, stop making him a martyr. His bosses had every right to terminate him.


The show's routines sometimes contained derogatory epithets for homosexuals, including "faggot" or "lesbo" and various terms describing homosexuality.tompaine.com...


On a December 15, 2004, show, Imus referred to publishers Simon & Schuster (under same ownership as CBS Radio) as "thieving Jews," and later in the show issued a mock apology, saying the phrase was "redundant." In October 1998, he described media critic Howard Kurtz as "that boner-nosed . . . beanie-wearing little Jew boy".www.fair.org...


Imus has also repeatedly referred to Arabs as "ragheads".www.annoy.com...

It is very sad, that the left and the right hate each other so much now it has come to this.

I never understood why they hated her so much,


I have never understood it either. Sarah Palin and her family seem like one of the most down-to-earth, average American families that we have witnessed in both politics, and all over the mainstream media, in a long time. I honestly feel that I can not only relate towards Palin and her family, but when I watch them, and understand their successes, trials, and tribulations, it feels as though that could be any of us in their position at that very moment.

I honestly get a feeling of sincerity and warmth from Governor Palin, which seems all too uncommon now-a-days in regards to media exposed personalities. Could this be the reason behind the bashing of her so often? Are people somewhat guarded and afraid of witnessing an Average American family rise to the top?

I truly feel that this issue transcends politics, because in all honesty, I can never remember a time before now when an entire family has been the attempted target of every insult, thrashing, and scathing rant. This is beyond ludicrous, it is beyond abhorrent, as it has in fact become an unleashed vendetta of sick minded individuals, wherein we have finally begun to witness the true personalities of those towards whom we used to feel respect, and even admiration.

Over the past year, during the 2008 Presidential Campaign Season, I have actually gained respect for a few well known spotlight dwelling personalities, but at the same time, I have lost a tremendous amount of respect for oh SO many more.

Wow that was out of left field........... Must be a Leno fan still bent about the change-up.
It was just a joke and nothing more. Some people need to grow thicker skin.
And yes Letterman beat Conan in ratings that night, thanks to Howard Stern.
Dare I say Baba Boey!!!

Your right. How silly of me.......


“Look, I got two daughters — 9 years old and 6 years old,” he said. “I am going to teach them first about values and morals, but if they make a mistake, I don’t want them punished with a baby.”

So much more class to abort your potential grandchild.





The daughter with the nascar name asked for it when she played doctor.


Man, sounds like anyone that does something like have sex early or have a relative run for office is "asking for it".



It was just a joke for cryin out loud, a poor tasteless one but
a joke nonetheless.


Good to see you defend a poor tasteless joke about a teenager with a very young child. That makes me feel so much better. Would it have been ok if she had aborted the baby to still make a joke about it?
