David Letterman “pathetic”

Alaska Governor Sarah Palin gets it right again.

Letterman referred to her as having a “slutty flight attendant look.” in his Top 10 shtick*.

After hearing David Letterman's crude comments about her the Governor says Letterman is Pathetic, and that is not all she had to say. (story and video at Politico)

Also, Letterman said that and her daughter Willow, who accompanied her to NY, was "knocked up by Alex Rodriguez" (YouTube Video). The audience had a good laugh about it.

Some right leaning bloggers are characterizing Letterman's comments as rape. (e.g. Moe Lane, David Letterman jokes about Alex Rodriguez raping Willow Palin.). Strong words, but if you put a few facts together you might arrive at the same label. Willow Palin is 14 years old and that fact would characterize any sexual activity with an adult as rape.

Personally, I find no humor in rape jokes and no one with half a brain should be making these repugnant jokes involving anyone, let alone a 14 year girl.

Letterman Top Ten list from 8 Jun 09. Some are funny (10., 8.,4.), some are obnoxious (9., 7., 6., 5., 2.) and one was just stupid (3.) and one was correct (1.)

10. Visited New York landmarks she normally only sees from Alaska
9. Laughed at all the crazy-looking foreigners entering the U.N.
8. Made moose jerky on Rachael Ray
7. Keyed Tina Fey’s car
6. After a wink and a nod, ended up with a kilo of crack
5. Made coat out of New York City rat pelts
4. Sat in for Kelly Ripa. Regis couldn’t tell the difference
3. Finally met one of those Jewish people Mel Gibson’s always talking about
*2. Bought makeup from Bloomingdale’s to update her “slutty flight attendant” look
1. Especially enjoyed not appearing on Letterman
