I don’t know about you, but I have never been a fan of David Letterman’s. As far as late-night TV is concerned, I’ve always preferred Jay Leno and “The Tonight Show.” At this point, I’m not sold on Conan O’Brien taking over for Leno, but he’s still much better than Letterman.
You might be aware that Letterman is making some headlines today for some comments he made during his monologue last night. Letterman said that while she was in New York, Sarah Palin, Alaska’s governor “bought makeup at Bloomingdale’s to update her slutty flight attendant look.” He also said, “One awkward moment for Sarah Palin at the Yankee game, during the seventh inning, her daughter was knocked up by Alex Rodriguez.”
What Letterman apparently didn’t realize (about his Yankee joke) was that he was making a fun of Palin’s 18-year-old daughter, Bristol, who recently had a child – but the daughter actually with Palin at the baseball game was her 14-year-old, Willow…
So now the door is now wide open for Letterman to be bashed by critics for making perverted jokes about a minor and an inappropriate comment about a governor.
You be the judge. Can Letterman say what he wants for a good laugh or did he cross the line?
