Shriveled Up Old "Comic": Yeah, I Made A Joke About Palin's Kid And It Was In "Poor Taste" But It's What I Do So Move On Related- Kathleen Parker: Palin Invited The Slutty Flight Attendant Joke

Letterman's non-apology is as sincere as his jokes are fun...that is to say not at all.

"We were, as we often do, making jokes about people in the news and we made some jokes about Sarah Palin and her daughter, the 18-year-old girl, who is — her name is Bristol, that’s right, and so, then, now they’re upset with me," Letterman said. "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…"

"… Gov. Palin, if you’re watching, I would like you to consider coming to New York City — even Todd — as my guests, or leave Todd at home. I’d love to have you on the show. It’d be exciting. All right, so there, I hope I’ve cleared part of this up. Am I guilty of poor taste? Yes. Did I suggest that it was okay for her 14-year-old daughter to be having promiscuous sex? No."

I'm torn about this. I don't think Palin should go on simply because of the ratings boost she'd give him, but if Todd went on and proceeded to beat Letterman over the head with Paul Shaffer, I'd be up for that.

Just curious but where are all the Hispanic groups protesting this? Alex Rodriquez is so proud of his Dominican heritage he was going to play for the Dominican Republic during the recent World Baseball Classic. How come Letterman gets a pass on suggesting a Hispanic male is a child rapist? Seems Imus got his ass run off the air pretty quickly for insults that were far less serious than Letterman's sexual assault "humor".*

Dirty slut whore Contessa Brewer could not be reached for comment.

The article I linked to has been updated with the Palin's response...

"The Palins have no intention of providing a rating's boost for David Letterman by appearing on his show," the Alaska governor's rep said in a statement to FOXNews.com.

"Plus, it would be wise to keep Willow away from David Letterman."

*Just to be clear, I don't really think this is a racial thing, I'm just pointing out the double standard involved. Letterman went after an approved group, so no harm, no foul.

UPDATE: Below is the video, if you can stomach it. As Jim Treacher says, "You really have to watch Letterman's "apology" to get the full flavor: angry, insincere, self-pitying, self-justifying."

Oh Boy...Kathleen Parker talking about Letterman's "slutty flight attendant" joke (not the kid sex one) says Palin played the flirt so she kind of had it coming.

I wonder if Kathleen Parker has ever been called a whore in public?

Below the fold: You really do have to watch the Letterman clip. He says it's just a joke. He's claiming the joke was about Bristol, the 18 year old (as if that's okay). The fact is however, she wasn't the one at the game. 14 year old Willow was. Facts are stubborn things you jackass.
