David Letterman: Isn't It Funny That Bristol Palin Got "Knocked Up," Just Like I Knocked Up My Girlfriend?
Update: Audio of Palin's Response: "Pathetic"
Correction: The Palin Daughter in Question Was Willow

Correction: Commenters tell me that the daughter who accompanied Sarah Palin to the game -- and the one who Letterman would therefore be talking about -- is Willow Palin, not Bristol. Willow was born in 1995 and is therefore 13 or 14.

Question: Obama's older daughter is approaching that age. Can we expect similar knocked-up jokes for her?

Dan Riehl notes the "Chelsea Clinton Rule" seems to only apply to Chelsea Clinton. And Obama's kids, I'm certain.

I had this in the sidebar but it seems to be stirring a lot of anger.

I would note that Letterman, who is 94 years young, "knocked up" his long-term live-in girlfriend accidentally. And that he did not marry his babymama for six years or so since his kid -- technically a bastard during this period -- was born.

I don't really get it. Why is a 17 year old girl to be ridiculed for the same carelessness the 122 year old decrepit fossil David Letterman exhibited?

BTW, I really doubt that was the only time Letterman knocked someone up. I'm guessing this is the first time the woman in question refused an abortion.

He's not just a has-been. He's been a has-been for years. He's actually jumped the shark at being a has-been.

Response: Palin on John Ziegler's show. Audio included.
