    Default David Letterman & Sarah Palin: war of words

    In the wake of her recent visit to New York, David Letterman had some fun at the expense of Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin on The Late Show this week – but the governor and her husband, Todd Palin, aren't laughing.

    On Tuesday's show, Letterman joked in his opening monologue that the governor visited Yankee Stadium, sitting in "far, far right field" with Rudy Giuliani. "They had a wonderful time," he continued. "The toughest part of her visit was keeping Eliot Spitzer away from her daughter."

    That last bit, a reference to the disgraced former New York governor who was caught with a prostitute, went over like a ton of bricks in the Palin household. Alaska's first couple took to their Facebook page to post the following messages:

    From Todd Palin: "Any 'jokes' about raping my 14-year-old are despicable. Alaskans know it and I believe the rest of the world knows it, too."

    'Disgusting'

    From Governor Sarah Palin: "Concerning Letterman's comments about my young daughter (and I doubt he'd ever dare make such comments about anyone else's daughter): 'Laughter incited by sexually-perverted comments made by a 62-year-old male celebrity aimed at a 14-year-old girl is not only disgusting, but it reminds us some Hollywood/NY entertainers have a long way to go in understanding what the rest of America understands – that acceptance of inappropriate sexual comments about an underage girl, who could be anyone's daughter, contributes to the atrociously high rate of sexual exploitation of minors by older men who use and abuse others.'"

    On Monday, Letterman's "Top Ten Highlights Of Sarah Palin's Trip To New York," included the following: "Keyed Tina Fey's car" (No. 7), "Finally met one of those Jewish people Mel Gibson's always talking about" (No. 3), "Bought makeup from Bloomingdale's to update her 'slutty flight attendant' look" (No. 2) and "Especially enjoyed not appearing on Letterman" (No. 1).

    I assumed he meant Bristol, not the 14 yr. old.

    Palin in a war of words with Letterman? That's not even a contest.

    And the Palin's have 3 daughters, so why would they jump to conclusion that he was talking about the 14-year-old?

    Because Willow Palin was the only daughter who went to the baseball game with her. She's 14 years old. Letterman also referred to the 14 year old as a prostitute for Elliott Spitzer.

    You can hate Sarah Palin all you want. But saying those things about a 14 year old girl is just disgusting and wrong.

    If Letterman specifically named Willow then he was wrong. Hands down. I may hate Palin but going after her minor kids is wrong.

    *shrug* LOTS of humor is disgusting and wrong .. it's called context. Dave's a hoot and Palin is a plague on our country.

    He said Willow Palin was knocked up by Alex Rodriguez during the 7th inning....so they didn't jump to conclusions.

    Pick on Palin, she's a fair target, and in a position to defend herself. The equivalent joke about Barack Obama’s daughter would not be tolerated.

    It used to annoy the shit out of me when people picked on Chelsea Clinton too.

    The joke doesn't make sense at all to me.

    Bristol doesn't travel with Sarah Palin any more.

    Spitzer is a democrat and doesn't hang out with Republicans.

    Spitzer hired whores; he didn't molest teenagers.

    It does sound like Letterman has kind of a vendetta.

    Apparently, Letterman wants in on some of the "being a dick" action.

    Two nights in a row he joked about the kid, the Spitzer stuff and the A-Rod jokes, so yes, I would agree.

    The adults are all fair game, the kids should not be. I don't care who's kid it is. IRL if I saw an adult picking on a child I would think 'what a dick'...this is no different to me.

    I'm more pissed off with Letterman for making me agree with Palin on anything after listening to that voice.
