VIDEO: Dave Apologizes; Will Palin Accept?

Jun 15, 2009  •  Post A Comment

The video of David Letterman’s apology to the Palin family has hit the Internet. Letterman comes off as remorseful and genuinely pained by the whole incident. But he doesn’t overdo things and keeps a matter-of-fact attitude throughout.

The question now is: Will Team Palin quit while they’re ahead by accepting Dave’s apology and moving on? Or will they keep ginning up the phony outrage?

Judge for yourself how Dave did:

  1. It’s ok for Rush Limbaugh to call Michael J. Fox a fake, as far as his disease goes – the right wing nuts have no problem with that – but Letterman making a joke – mistaking one Palin daughter for another – is grounds for waterboarding him. I’m so sick of the hypocrisy on the right. They support illegal wars, torture…the most obscene and disgusting behaviour. Shut your pie holes, right wing a$$wipes.

  2. MacKenna,
    While Rush’s comments were not appropriate, Mr. Fox is not a minor. The joke Dave made was aimed at one of the Palin kids. Some feel it was her 18 year old, others her 14 year old. 14 or 18, this joke went too far.
    Remember Imus’ comments? He was fired. Dave was not, nor should he be. How about Bill Maher’s anti-religious remarks? Don’t go calling right winger butt-wipes MacKenna, because the left has as much or more venom. Wake-up.

  3. Personally, I’m sick of Right AND Left wing extremists. Furthermore I’m willing to give Letterman the benefit of any doubt. If Dave said the joke was aimed at the 18 year old daughter, then I believe him. I also forgive him for his honest mistake. I suspect, however, Palin and other neocons won’t forgive him – and yet forgiveness is supposed to be a fundamental principal of the Christian Faith. Isn’t there a word for that? Oh yeah, they’re called “hypocrites.”

  4. There was no misperception, the joke was what it was and is indefensible. Letterman is a jerk, pure and simple. Dear Leader said family was off limits, guess that just applies to D’s.

  6. You people have no sense of humor. You should stick to your homes and board it up and stay insode til you die, Really when iss the world going to learn that stick and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me. Regarless of age of the so called VICTIM. geesus people, get over it. If it true then hell its all palin’s fault, Its was Crude yes, but a JOKE, so who cares. You people are idiot, always trying to make things worst than they are, no harm done, its what the palin’s beleive will only harm them, i guess it true, that her daughter might get KNOCKED UP! but he didnt say RAPE! you people need to learn. Not to be disturb by what people say, Its what they know of you matter! Its what YOU DO that MATTERS! So far Palin has a skank of a daughter so, the next one in line will do the same I would not be surprised not one bit.

  7. Out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh. That is Gospel. Joke or not.

  8. It doesn’t matter which girl, or whose daughter it was a sick and perverted thing to say about anyone. What about all the young ladies who have made mistakes and moved on. God forgives he said you who have not sinned cast the first stone. I question the integrity of one who even uses the term Knocked Up.

He hit the nail one the head cheap and despirate. I have a wonderful sense of humor and love to laugh this wasn’t funny.

  10. “You people have no sense of humor.”
    No sense of humor? Please. David Shuster got suspended for saying Chelsea Clinton was “pimped out” and the head of NBC apologized personally to the Clintons. Democrats only have a sense of humor when gap-toothed freaks like Letterman, who finally just remembered to marry his baby mama, go after young, vulnerable daughters of the opposite party. Funny what liars they are.
    The standard has always been that you don’t joke about the kids. When Limbaugh broke that rule, he was correctly raked over the coals, and he apologized. And he didn’t say anything half as nasty as Letterman. So in the interest of any credibility whatsoever, Clinton, Obama, and the whole gang should have publicly demanded that Letterman apologize, which of course they didn’t because they’re marinating in hypocrisy.
    The treatment of Sarah Palin and her poor kids by the media has been disgusting.
    And while I expect they’ll do the right thing and accept Letterman’s apology, I don’t think the outrage at having either of your daughters called a whore or a slut is at all manufactured. Let someone go on national tv and call you daughter a whore and see what a sense of humor you have.

  11. i watched mr letterman’s attempt to
    apologize and i must say it was pathetic. all i got was, it wasn’t my fault you people misunderstood, really, it was very easy to understand what he ment.by the way i didn’t watch the show,never again, i googled it.

  12. Let them call my daughter a whore, who cares, Its what we know, and the public willing to know, if they come and ask us if she is then ill appropiately answer them, i wouldnt care who said it. even if the president said it, doesnt mean its true, you have to go to the source. When the people who find the truth will realize, who is telling the truth, then they’ll learn who to believe. Its their word against mine. if they dont want to ask the source then thats their perogative. ill just enjoy the laughs. Ill be happy if they mention my daughter “is a whore”, that would be funny. I would then say ” PROVE IT ” and move on. the jokes on them. because i know the truth.
    Just because a million people believe it, doesnt mean its true.

  13. Holy Crap….Hey MacKenna, your a typical Liberal whimp spewing out your pathetic views. Letterman’s joke was indeed intentional, period. Do me a favor along w/all the other D’s out there and grow a pair!
    I’m soooo sick of all of you L/D’s walking around like a bunch of jellyfish with no backbones. That’s the problem with people like you left wing nut jobs out there, you’re pathetic loosers that want to follow that Big Headed, Big nosed Bill Maher and all the other yahoos political correctness instead of standing up for what this country was founded on….MORALS!! Get a life you Twitter. Letterman is a jerk and will always be a jerk, period. Holy Crap, the only reason he apologized was because he was about to get FIRED if he didn’t….so give me a break you left wing Wacko. I’ll say it again, LETTERMAN IS A JERK and they should take his whimpy A$$ off TV. OOOHHH, did I offend anyone :)
