Sarah, Plain and… Pathetic

RELATED: Suing for peace in late night.

Sarah Palin is attacking David Letterman for daring to make a joke involving her daughter. But it turns out Letterman’s hardly the first late night comic to use Palin progeny as a punchline.

Last September, just days after Palin burst on to the national scene, then-"Tonight Show" host Jay Leno cracked a joke that implied Bristol Palin’s baby daddy was actually a famous politician.

"Gov. Palin announced over the weekend that her 17-year-old unmarried daughter is five months pregnant," Leno joked on the Sept. 2, 2008 edition of "Tonight," according to an ABC News report from the time. "And you thought John Edwards was in trouble before! Now he has really done it."

CBS’s Craig Ferguson also linked the young Palin to Edwards.

"I don’t think that a young lady getting pregnant should even be news, unless John Edwards is the father," Ferguson quipped, according to ABC. "Then that is kinda news."

Emmy-winning comic Kathy Griffin also jumped on the joke bandwagon last fall, taking several pointed jabs at the Palin family.

"Sarah Palin talks about creationism. Well there’s a lot of creationism going on in Bristol’s tummy," Griffin said. "She makes the Bush twins look like nuns. It was shocking when they were running around with beer in their hands. But she’s made it trendy to be a pregnant teenager. I hope she has a really nice trailer park in Alaska."

The Palins, of course, began their war on Letterman by trying to make it seem as if Letterman were attacking their 14-year-old daughter. But even after Letterman explained he was referring to Bristol Palin– who is now 18 and has made numerous media appearances on behalf of her mom– the Palins have continued their rhetorical combat against Letterman.

James Hibberd has an excellent mini- rant on the matter over at The Live Feed. I concur with his point, which is that Sarah Palin purposely tries to turn different segments of American society against each other.

But I’d also like to add a complaint against Todd Palin’s decision to denounce Letterman publicly and to inject the word "rape" into the discussion.

Letterman’s jokes never came close to implying any sort of rape, and for Todd Palin to introduce the idea of his 14-year-old being raped into the public debate is just plain wrong. Moreover, if Todd Palin really did think Letterman was joking about the rape of his 14-year-old, why didn’t he pick up the phone and demand to speak to Letterman directly in order to defend his daughter’s honor?

Oh, wait, that’s right: You don’t score political points or rally the base if you keep truly private matters private.

One last thought: The Palin camp is making a big mistake trying to convince the public that Letterman is part of their newly created Hollywood-New York cabal of evil. Letterman is a midwest man who has always avoided the limelight. He made a star out of his own mom. He still visits his alma mater, Ball State.

In other words, Letterman is no showbiz sleazoid.

Nor, by the way, is he known for left-wing politics. Yes, he stepped up his attacks on President Bush during the last few years of his term in office. But that was just Dave reflecting the national mood of anger toward Bush.

There’s also something just plain sick about the latest line of attack on Letterman, introduced Saturday night by (who else?) Ann Coulter on (where else?) Fox News. She threw out the "bombshell" that Letterman fathered his son out of wedlock, implying… well, I’m not sure what Coulter was implying. She just wanted to say something snarky and mean about Letterman, I suppose.

In the end, though, I suspect that trying to demonize and politicize David Letterman will end up backfiring on Palin and her backers. At least, I hope it does– because, if it works, we all have a lot to be very scared about.

  1. “Never came close to insinuating rape” — hmmm, since Letterman’s joke was about an unnamed Palin daughter at the Yankee game while she was in town, and since that daughter was Willow, and since Willow is 14 — just what do you call A-Rod knocking up a 14-year-old but statutory rape.
    Maybe if you thought of the joke being about a loved-one of yours you’d feel differently. Just what would it be like for your loved one at school after Letterman’s joke… just what would the boys be saying and thinking after they hear Letterman joke about Eliot Spitzer being after her?
    I suspect you can’t put yourself in the Palin’s shoes because you really, really don’t care how the jokes make them feel.

  2. …if it works, we all have a lot to be very scared about.”
    Watch the comments on this story. You’ll see at least half of them buy Palin’s sick, divisive distortions completely. Several will also twist the story even further to be negative about Obama.
    The FBI reported increased threats against Obamas life in direct relation to Palin rallies. Homeland Security recently warned of an increase threat from the radical right. Hate is on the rise. And Palin is fanning the flames because she’s a malignant narcissist.
    We do have alot to be very scared about.

  3. Dan – I agree that Letterman was wrong to make the joke if he knew which daughter was in town.
    From reports – Letterman said that it was the adult daughter; we would have to take his word for it. Even then it is still wrong to align her to A-Rod, but that is another discussion.
    In future he and his writers keep children out of the scripts.
    We need to get back to some decency on the Tube.

  4. Finally, a well-reasoned and accurate defense of Letterman by someone in the media. Thank you.

  5. Too bad SNL isn’t in production to add some levity to this situation.

  6. YOu have posted a well written article detailing this moronic mountain out of a molehill nonsense. The very idea of the Palins actually being upset about Letterman’s jokes and not trying to score political points is so obvious. I can’t believe otherwise serious and intelligent media types aren’t denouncing Sarah! and Todd for their hypocritical ways.

  7. I wonder if Dave would have liked it if everyone referred to his NOW wife as the girlfriend he knocked up AND referred to his son, before he got married as his little bastard? Would he have thought those were funny words about his son? It doesn’t matter which daughter he was talking about, this is the pot calling the kettle black.
    Some of you idiots are basing how much decency you are willing to extend on your politics.

  8. It’s interesting that Fox’s Hannity and Huckabee are praising Leno for never telling such a joke, when what he said last September (quoted above) is near-identical to the joke Dave told last week. As I recall, no one complained back then.
    Here’s a clip of Fox’s manufactured outrage:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GqUqaTXB6v4

  9. He and his girlfriend now wife were not 17 years old and still in high school. There’s a difference.

  10. I agree with this article one hundred percent. The Palins are the most obnoxious, desperate attention-seekers, period. They are opportunist of the worst kind and I feel sorry for everyone they’ve snowed. Look at their owns lives and their actions. They always try to pit one group after another with their attacks and try to act so innocently as victims. I have faith that they’ll get their due.

  11. I’d like to thank the author for pointing out what everyone who isn’t a member of the Sarah Palin Fan Club already knew: David Letterman is not the only one who has made these types of jokes! Even the Almighty Leno has stooped so low, but NOW all of a sudden, such jokes are an INTOLERABLE OUTRAGE that require immediate CENSORSHIP FROM THE AIRWAVES!
    And nobody, NOBODY, ever started talking about RAPE of 14-year-old girls until the Palins started mouthing off. If David Letterman is in the gutter, then they’re right there next to him. Only David Letterman doesn’t expect anyone to put him in the White House like the Palins do. My God–what a nightmare that would be!
    Can we find a state further away than Alaska to ship them off to?

  12. Actually I think your effort to defend bad behavior with bad behavior will backfire on you. Your punishment will be having to right moonbat defenses for a TV publication no one has heard of before. Wait… you’ve done this before, haven’t you?

  13. No one seems to get the joke was realy about Elliot Spitzer!

  14. With every attack on Gov. Palin, the leftist media continues to prove just how afraid of her they are. If she is so “stupid”, why do you do everything in your power to destroy her? You misrepresent, you misreport and you continue to condone the most reprehensible behavior. I bet you jumped at the opportunity to write a vigorous defense of Don Imas and his offensive comments, right? Right.
    That the person who wrote this drivel does not see that what David Letterman did was beyond distasteful, all one has to do is replace Palin’s 14 year old daughter with, well, let’s say Chelsea Clinton or Amy Carter at the same age and we’ll see how the howls of protest from would be heard from coast to coast.
    Of course, it is all ok because other uneducated leftist comedians have previously made despicable jokes.
    Your double standard is obvious to every thinking, fair-minded individual and your utter lack of humanity will come back to bite you in the long run.
    Do you really not see just how stupid you sound when you say that Dave was simply reflecting the national mood about Bush and that he has never been a “showbiz sleazoid”. Call me old fashion but reinforcing the bias of your network, the very network who allowed Dan Rather’s baseless story about Bush’s Air National Guard service to air just before an election, and saying everything but a 14 year old was raped by A-Rod and not being married to your son’s mother could qualify to be a member of that category. Letterman used to be a funny, inventive comedian. Not, with each passing day, he comes off as nothing more than a bitter, old man.
    Your defense of the indefensible is utter idiocy.

  15. Great blog post — the best I’ve seen on this Letterman/Palin business.
    AB

  16. On the mark, Joe. Of course, the average person actually knows all this. Over-the-top ranters do not represent and have never reflected the feelings of the public at large. I do think that there is a general liberal slant in the entertainment world, and that there is a double-standard for late night humor, in particular (Obama- untouchable; ANY Republican – fair game). I think Dave could have been a little more humble in his “apology” (which was actually more of an “explanation”). However, this matter has been blown completely out of proportion.

  17. Are you serious? Because others make tasteless jokes it is ok for Letterman to do it? If it were similar jokes about Obama’s daughters would you feel the same? Because you may not like Sarah Palin’s politics (I am making an assumption that it is only her politics you don’t like as I am sure you really don’t know here) that isn’t a reason to offer a defense of David Letterman, Jay Leno or Kathy Griffin. It should be off limits to joke on family members of a public persona, they are not the ones who put themselves into the spotlight. If someone wants to crack jokes on a politician who more than likely has something to joke about, so be it, but have the common courtesy to leave young family, spouses, siblings and parents out of it. This is so infantile and more than anything shows the “dumbing” down of America, left or right. We all need to grow up and learn civility.

  18. Your defense of Letterman is flawed, lame and obviously biased. The word RAPE is appropriate because how else would a 14-year old get impregnated in Yankee Stadium if it wasn’t a rape. The liberal double standard is in effect here. Conservative woman = slut, red-neck, whore, low-life. Imus got his butt reamed for his unfortunate remarks and was punished and atoned for them. Letterman shouldn’t get a free pass.

  19. Obama is untouchable? Obviously, you do not watch “The Daily Show” or “Real Time with Bill Mahr.” Both shows have been quite adept at both artful or, in the case of Mahr’s latest New Rules rant, brutal in pointing out where the new administration has been lacking.

  20. Dan, I agree that you have not read the entire article or considered all of the facts. Take your tongue off your dick and learn how to read.

  21. Bob, I’m sure you were first in line to condemn Rush Limbaugh and his ilk when they regularly attacked teenager Chelsea Clinton (who wasn’t even 18, unlike Bristol). Oh wait… I’m guessing you weren’t. Hypocrite.

  22. Sarah Palin is a walking joke who makes more of a fool of herself everytime she opens her mouth.
    She’s not smart enough to realize it either…but then that figures, doesn’t it?
    Dave just keep on keeping on…but Ms. Palin is not worth the energy to mention her for any reason. All she wants is her name on air…so don’t give it to her.

  23. You’re correct, there is an absolute difference.
    Letterman is much older than Bristol Palin and even older than Bristol Palin’s mother and still had a child out of wedlock, he’s not in high school and REALLY should have known better.
    Anyone who has children and particularly children who are teenagers know you can talk and teach all you want but at the end of the day, your kids are going to do what they want. What was Dave’s excuse?? That he’s older????
    Again, I wonder how funny Dave is going to think it is when the press is all over his son when he’s a teenager.

  25. I’m sorry – “I meant the joke to be about your 18 year-old daughter getting knocked up, not your 14 year-old daughter” simply doesn’t fly.
    Letterman, simply stated, overreached and his apology was weak at best.
    His extended apology today was much more responsible.

  26. I feel really sad for you if you don’t think a 14 year old having sex with a grown man isn’t considered rape. You are a pathetic, narrow minded loser. Why don’t you just stop writing now and head home to worship your child-pornography. You make me sick.

  27. Bryan, Letterman mentioned that he (A-Rod) knocked up Palin’s daughter, the one he took to the game (14 years old). Why don’t you get your mouth off of everybodies dick and learn to read. Fag.

  28. STOP bringing up the 14 year old! Wasn’t about her no matter how much you wish it was.

  29. Who was it that was at the ball game with Palin that Letterman was referring to, then? Was it her grandmother? No. It was her 14 YEAR OLD DAUGHTER! Friggin’ moron!!

  30. I know, let’s just execute all comedians who make offensive jokes about conservative republicans. Then we can burn books and periodicals too. Sound familiar. Grow up! Shit happens. I thought it was funny though. I am personally boycotting Embassy Suites. This is ridiculous.

  31. Wow, do you always take jokes so literal? You must be a laugh riot. You know when they joke about the Pope, a rabbi and a minister walking into the bar… the Pope didn’t actually walk into a bar. In this case, Letterman was riffing on the fact that Palin trotted out her pregnant daughter for the world to see. They’re a fertile family. He didn’t know that the 14 year old was at the ball game, and it didn’t matter. Here’s the joke: The Palins pop out a lotta kids.
    Wow, I’d hate to sit next to you during a comedy show.

    I’m gonna take a stab: You dropped out of high school. Or have no higher education to speak of. Because you’re really, honestly, not that intelligent.

  33. Hurray for this article! Dave never mentioned rape, nor did he refer to Willow. Some folks – like Dan and
    Concerned – just don’t understand humor. Humor has to be relevant and making the joke about Willow wouldn’t be relevant. It was obvious to me that Dave was talking about Bristol; after all, she was the one who was “knocked up,” a crude but accurate term. Sarah Palin has chosen to keep herself and her family in the public eye and just won’t acknowledge that, in the words of Ferris Bueller, “It’s over. Go home.”

  34. This supposedly “eloquent” post is so extreme in its bias that it seems futile to respond to rationally. The headline’s “pathetic” more aptly applies to attempts like this one to justify what Letterman himself has finally admitted “can’t be defended.” It’s really over the top to label “pathetic” parents’ objection to a network TV “joke” about their 14-year-old daughter being “knocked up” during a game at Yankee Stadium. Most civilized people would consider any such objection to be “understandable” and “justified,” not “pathetic.”
    Your post’s initial sentence was grossly misleading: “Sarah Palin is attacking David Letterman for daring to make a joke involving her daughter.” Palin acknowledged Letterman’s free speech right to “joke” about anything he wishes. Her objection is to such a coarse “joke” about a teenage girl who did nothing remotely warranting such ridicule.
    You attempted to justify Letterman’s comments by first asserting that others had previously joked about the Palin family. That’s an unpersuasive defense for this particular “joke.” The reason the Palins “make it seem as if Letterman were attacking their 14-year-old daughter” is obviously justified by the joke itself which Letterman explicitly connected to the recent NY visit by Palin and her daughter. The fact that the daughter was 14-year-old Willow (not 18-year-old Bristol) was publicly reported. It was entirely reasonable to assume that Letterman’s “joke” referred to the daughter who was actually there.
    It’s “pathetic” to insinuate that the Palins caused this controversy. Did they masterfully manipulate Letterman into joking about their daughter being “knocked up” at Yankee Stadium? Was poor Dave a helpless dupe of some irresistible right-wing mind-control effort? Letterman himself is solely responsible for choosing to broadcast such a “joke” in the first place. He extended the controversy by several days by his initially unapologetic “apology.” If he had offered a straightforward apology last week, attention would have receded much sooner. By calling attention to it on the air last week without really apologizing (and actually expressing renewed satisfaction with his accompanying “slutty flight attendant” quip), it was Letterman who escalated the controversy, not the Palins.
    Finally, a week later, Letterman has offered a real apology which the Palins immediately accepted. If this continues to attract attention it will be due largely to comments by others about an incident for which Letterman himself bears full responsibility.

  35. The statement above is completely off kilter in that it basically is trying to defend all of the crude comments about Gov. Palin’s kids as to being okay since everyone is taking shots and no one is complaining. If Gov. Palin was a Democrat none of this would have been said. Go look at the video catching VP Biden’s daughter doing coke and where were all the comics. No where to be found. Olympic winner Michael Phelps caught on video and he was the news story for weeks.
    Crude comments about young girls and women in this country by comics, or anybody, need to be held out and shown for what they really are and the longer we all stay silent then we are just as guilty.
    The scarey thing here is to hear how the intent was not meant to harm which is nonsense since nobody knows intent of words for other than what is spoken. Maybe this will inspire us all to think before what we speak.

  37. This response is so slanted it’s incredible. Did you defend Don Imus when he made his comment about “nappy headed hos”? I seriously doubt it. He was thrown under the bus by the media industry. Did you defend Mel Gibson when he made his comments about Jews? Probably not.

  38. Dave Letterman has become much more bitter and harshly political in his “comedy” over the last few years. I think it makes him much less funny. The “off the wall” comedy that was his trademark earlier in his career, just isn’t there anymore – save his sharp mind and his ability to intelligently quip. Why this latest blunder happened, who can be sure? Perhaps he and CBS are desparate, given losses in viewership and huge declines in revenue. Perhaps, this was a calculated move in light of Conan’s replacement of Leno. (Dave did get a huge amount of ink about it.) I don’t know, but there has to be a backstory to this. Ultimately, Dave did get it right. He told a really stupid joke. Even if it was about an 18 year old, it was still nasty. The bumbling idiocy of unintentionally having it refer to a 14 year old, doesn’t change the stupidity of the joke. I think we all would agree that it is in poor taste to ridicule a woman who is pregnant and unmarried, whether a conservative or a liberal. Who of us has not either known or been related to an unwed mother? Was mockery of this person in your life ever considered “funny”? Dave’s writers crossed the line with a cheap shot joke about unwed pregnancy. Their poor judgement was compounded by a poor job of researching their material, not realizing that the daughter at the game was underage. So, in light of this, Josef Adalian castigates the Palin family for defending themselves? And he says that their self defense is testimony to their desire to divide the country? Josef, I suggest that you walk in their shoes for a moment. The Palins are people. They bleed when cut, just like you. They love their kids, just like we all love our kids. Why not give them the freedom to stand up for themselves? Why does Mr. Letterman deserve the freedom to say what he said, but when the Palins defend themselves, they are engaging in divisive behavior, designed to turn different parts of America against each other? What is wrong, in a free society, for a citizen to engage in their own verbal defense when they are the subject of comments they deem to be wrong? The answer is that there is nothing wrong with it at all. Good honest people will, at times, be insulted and mocked in very nasty ways, but they do not have to be shrinking violets in response. I applaud the Palins for standing up for themselves. They are honest hard working Americans. They have character, backbone and strength. They are not perfect, nor are any of us, but they do deserve the right to defend themselves and their family. Ultimately, the Palins were proven right, as David Letterman apologized at length last night for a joke that never was a joke.

  40. who writes this crap. IF THAT WAS THE OBAMA KIDS or PELOSI KIDS or ANY DEMOCRATS KIDS — you would be enraged. But because its Palin’s kids it just dont matter to you people.
    don’t lecture the american people about what they can and cannot be offended about.

  41. I’m betting you did, Bob! What about all those times Rush Limbaugh made fun of Chelsea? I bet you were guffawing along with all your ilk. Hypocrite. Idiot.

  42. Whatever your political views are, even though you’re obviously Democratic, I would think that people would see this ‘humor’ for what it truly is. Tasteless, with no place in today’s society. ESPECIALLY when talking about a woman’s daughter (whether she be 18 or 14, which it was her that he was referring to). I’m not going to go tit-for-tat with anybody, because we all have opinions. I am a very humorous person, no matter what anybody on here thinks, but I also have a daughter. If anybody were to ever try to benefit from her misfortune or degradation, then I would have a serious problem. There’s so many things wrong with this world these days, but my family is first and foremost in my life, and I will do anything at all possible to protect them. It is in this way that I agree with Sarah Palin. Letterman took the opportunity to be a ‘humorous’ ass and be mean to someone. Normally, I DO find him funny, just not in this case.
    So, perhaps you are right, it is over and now it’s time to go home. I just pray for you, and your family. If your daughter gets ‘knocked up’, suck it up and see the humor. Have a great day.

  43. When is this BROAD Palin’s 15 minutes up???
    I would like to state on the record that I would participate in a 3some with Sara and her EIGHTEEN YEAR OLD DAUGHTER!!!

  44. (1) Letterman’s joke was about the Palin daughter who was at the Yankee’s game getting “knocked up” by Alex Rodriguez.
    (2) The daughter who was at the game was Willow Palin, who is 14.
    (3) Sex with a 14-year-old constitutes statutory rape in most every juridiction I’ve ever heard of.
    Ergo, (4) Letterman’s joke was about raping a 14-year-old girl.
    QED

  45. Your network is slipping and deteriorating since taking on the task as voice of the White House.
    Our family believes in fair and impariality in the production of America’s news. ABC merely produces programing in support of it’s adopted agenda.
    This behavior will cost ABC it’s future.
    Is this a death wish or bias so strong it cannot be dealt with and managed.
    Try to do better; get rid of Letterman;
    report important news; don’t run infomercials and call such programing “news.
    Change your approach or plan on closing your doors from shrinking revenue.
    Good luck.

  46. Indeed, whatever genius came up with this political strategy, “Operation Dave” completly failed in garnering any good-decent-and more importantly intelligent voters to their base, or camp or whatever you call them types of folks. It is quite common political figures screw up in grand ways, It is common day news for political officials to resign, be indicted or be caught in adultry. Maybe all three at once! It is even almost acceptable, in places for a teenage girl to get pregnant and give birth, Crap happens, it just does. For a woman who is a political official (We’ll call her ‘Pot’) to stand out in front of God, and everyone and infer, imply and mislead people into believing an innocent man is a deviant criminal is abominable. I don’t need, to put ‘kettle’ in parenthesis, David Letterman knows it took him a long time to marry his lovely bride. He has never mislead nor inferred he was anything more than he is. DAVE FOR PRESIDENT, Let’s give him ‘Pot’s’ position…and, make it a successful election. Heh heh.

  47. Rush said this is bad. So I say it is BAD TOO
