Yes she was-it was Willow. If he had done some fact checking he would have known that and I'm sure he wouldn't have made such a joke. Then perception vs intent wouldn't have even been an issue.

I'm sure the same people calling for Letterman's firing will be calling for these two to take action as well...

don't hold your breath.

Yeah, his team of writers probably dropped the ball. I'm sure Dave doesn't write his own monologue most nights. And he's smarter than to make that joke about a 14 year old.

It deserved a serious apology, and it was given.

I don't think it's funny at all if you think about Bristol-fyi. She's an 18 year old who had a baby and had her life publicly scrutinized and I'm sure it hasn't been easy at all for her. I feel compassion for her and don't like those "jokes" about her either-leave her out of it too.

Dave can do much better than that (and much better than slutty looking flight attendant too). He's seemingly an intelligent guy. Even if he didn't write it, he didn't have to read it. He's a father too.

Apology made and accepted and hopefully something learned

I was going to post it in the Letterman thread but then I thought better than to do that...

I'm not a big fan of Letterman
but from what I've seen of him the joke doesn't seem too far apart from his usual jokes
instead of Madonna, Britney it was the Palins

Conservatives FYMers standing up for women. It's a big moment.





But it'll all evaporate next time big, mean, butch Hillary or some other castrating Democrat bitch does something to piss them off.

Talk about opportunists. Jesus.

Dearie, you don't seem to realize that most of the posts about Hilary are just designed to get a reaction - and you guys always fall for it.

Everyone has to draw the line where he sees fit. For me it depends on the context mainly, but some words can hardly be put into an acceptable context.
I wouldn't see that "slutty" can never fit. But well, as referred to before, there are different standards as to what constitutes comedy, or better, what comedy is allowed to say.
Well, you might see it different, which I can understand considering our very different world views, but for me there is a big difference between "nappy headed hos" and "slutty" or "knocked up" (which I wouldn't translate to rape), so I don't see the reaction of some crowd as justified.

You would never say something like that if it was a leftwing group protesting something. Never in a million years. In fact, if a conservative FYM poster said that a gay rights group or the NAACP should consider finding useful work to do during the day, they would be called a bigot.

So, yeah, Diamond is right. There's a double standard at play here right enough.

As for the hillbillies comment, I guess there is something in the metropolitan liberal elitist stereotype after all.
