To be honest, that's the way I took the jokes, too, that they were more a play on A-Rod and Spitzer's reputations, and that the Palin girl (and I'm absolutely convinced that he did mean Bristol, the older girl, or else the first joke doesn't even make sense) was more of an unfortunate prop to that. I'm sure few agree with me, though...

you keep going on about Bristol

so you think saying A-Rod knocked up Bristol during the 7th inning stretch was was just fine?

I'm not going to say it's tasteful, but she's 18, in the public eye, and has a baby. That joke was begging to be made. But if that becomes unacceptable, what else does?

Seriously, if Letterman isn't allowed to make those jokes he, and the rest of the comedy world, may as well pack it in right now.

18 means it is legal for her to do certain things

not that she becomes a target. and as for having a baby, it is not like she was out getting drunk, having loads of sex, like Paris Hilton and those types
she's a single mom that seems to live a respectable life.

when Obama's girls become 18, will it be cool make sexual jokes about them?

I see what you're doing here, but seriously were all the ugly Chelsea jokes fine?

I get that you are playing devil's advocate, but we've already covered all this ground.

feel free to explain why a young single mom deserves to be ridiculed on national tv in this sexual way.

Yeah, well that's fabulous, but her mother is a politician and she is in the public eye as a result - therefore she is a target. And sorry if I implied that when you turn 18, all bets are off - what I'm saying is she's a mature woman now, she made her decisions re: baby, so deal with them. Coming from a family where her mother is a politician you'd think they'd have a bit of a thicker skin than that, especially when she wasn't even really the target of the joke.

But all that aside, you're saying is that you don't think it's a tasteful joke. That's your prerogative. I don't disagree. Letterman has admitted this and subsequently apologised. Why are we having this discussion? There is nothing left to say here, except some people want to drag this on and make it a bigger and wider issue than what it is.

I love how you've also made a comparison to Obama here, as if I'm a left winger because I disagree with you.

Chelsea was pretty boring, but she still got teased for her akward looks.

The Bush girls provided quite a bit of tabloid talk and jokes for a long while.

But the 18 year old daughter of an abstinence only believer is off limits?

When did the American public shift?

which would lead me to conclude that you thought that would be o k.

If Palin and Bristol went to the ballgame I still think the joke would be wrong. It probably would not got near the attention, sadly.

How often do you think the children of parents that advocate safe sex, regular condom use, get pregnant ?

I did say that. But c'mon Deep, you're smarter than that - acknowledging that doesn't equate to approval, does it? My lack of outrage doesn't equate to approval, either. There are many, many more grave injustices that are committed against women daily that I'd concern myself with long before this would be something worthy of my outrage.

All I'm pointing out is that there's no doubt in my mind that he meant the older one, therefore the charges of him joking about statutory rape are crazy and way overblown.

Deserved and "appropriate" are two different things, now aren't they?

In fact you of all people should understand this...
