This just in. David Letterman just made a jab at Sarah Palin’s daughter, saying that she was knocked up during the seventh inning by A-Rod. Okay, so that story is a few days old. (I really need to get this fixed.) Moving on to the special interest story, Letterman made a controversial joke about Sarah Palin’s daughter, Bristol.
This referenced the Yankees game that she attended with her mother. Fact check. Bristol was NOT at the game. It was her younger 14-year-old sister, Willow. With that, Letterman made a joke about a 14-year-old being knocked up by A-Rod. Letterman also invited Sarah Palin on The Tonight Show. Palin, however, has no intentions to appear on the show.
Palin’s reason for declining is that she doesn’t want any part of Letterman’s ratings bait. After the jokes, Letterman apologized, admitting that the jokes were directed at Bristol, not Willow. Letterman has this to say in his apology.
“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…”
Maybe Letterman should think and do a little research before he cracks his jokes. To be honest, I’m really a Conan person myself. Letterman’s just stuffy and arrogant. Conan? He’s easier to relate to and he doesn’t tout that aura of elitism. And that’s the news for this week. I probably won’t be going with this format again. To all of you in the blogosphere, I hope that you all have a good day.
