Late Night Poser Succumbs to Palin Power!
By John W. Lillpop
Viva Sarah Palin!
That is the cry echoing about the land these days as the much-maligned, but beautiful and intelligent, Governor Palin of Alaska has taught leftist wit David Letterman a badly needed lesson in politeness and power politics.
'Twas just over a week ago that Letterman decided to take out his frustration at being second best (to Conan O'Brien) on the voluptuous young governor and her 14-year old daughter with remarks so sinister and inappropriate that even liberal feminists at NOW sided with the Republican governor and consigned Letterman to the Media Hall of Shame.
Avid Letterman devotees, mostly weak minded liberal women, continued to support the faltering host by claiming that the jokes were "funny" and that nobody gives a tinker's damn about Sarah Palin anyhow,
OOPS! Not so fast.
As it turns out, Governor Sarah Palin is highly regarded and loved by tens of millions of fair minded, civil Americans. Those millions were peeved by Letterman's pornographic insinuation that likened Palin's young daughter Willow to a prostitute, one so desperate that she might even cavort with scumbag Eliot Spitzer, heir apparent to Bill Clinton's legacy of perversion in high office.
As reported at Reuters, Letterman finally got the message that his joke was NOT funny and was, in fact, totally repulsive.
The over the hill DJ finally saw the light and came crawling with his tail between his legs as follows:
"David Letterman apologized on Monday for making a sexually charged joke about one of Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin's teenage daughters, as a group of Palin supporters planned a rally demanding the late-night TV show host be fired.
"I told a joke that was beyond flawed, and my intent is completely meaningless compared to the perception" of the joke by viewers, he said during Monday's taping of "Late Night with David Letterman," according to a transcript given to Reuters.
"And since it was a joke I told, I feel that I need to do the right thing here and apologize for having told that joke," he said. "It's not your fault that it was misunderstood, it's my fault."
"Last Tuesday, Letterman joked that New York Yankees slugger Alex Rodriguez had "knocked up" the former vice-presidential nominee's daughter during a family trip to a baseball game.
But the daughter in question was 14-year-old Willow, not the intended target, 18-year-old unwed mother Bristol. Letterman said the following night that he was confused between the two and would never make sexual jokes about a 14-year-old.
"Despite his explanation, Palin has charged that Letterman made "sexually perverted" comments.
"In the transcript from Monday's show, Letterman also said he was sorry to Palin and both her daughters.
"I would like to apologize especially to the two daughters involved, Bristol and Willow, and also to the Governor and her family and everybody else who was outraged by the joke. I'm sorry about it and I'll try to do better in the future," he said.
"The apologies came as a group of Palin supporters, calling themselves FireDavidLetterman.com, planned a Tuesday protest outside the show's studio at the Ed Sullivan theater in New York's Times Square."
For her part, Governor Palin, ever the gracious and noble lady, accepted the apology and said it was accepted "on behalf of all young women, like my daughters, who hope men who `joke' about public displays of sexual exploitation of girls will soon evolve."
That Governor Palin sure has class! Seems to me that she would be an excellent choice for President of these United States!
