Not only is David Letterman not funny, he is also a liar. In response to advertisers pulling their advertising from his show, Letterman issued an apology for a joke he made last week about the statutory rape of Sarah Palin’s 14 year old daughter, Willow.
From the Live Feed dot com:
“All right, here – I’ve been thinking about this situation with Governor Palin and her family now for about a week – it was a week ago tonight, and maybe you know about it, maybe you don’t know about it. But there was a joke that I told, and I thought I was telling it about the older daughter being at Yankee Stadium. And it was kind of a coarse joke. There’s no getting around it, but I never thought it was anybody other than the older daughter, and before the show, I checked to make sure in fact that she is of legal age, 18.“
Above Letterman tried to justify his attack by saying that he thought she was at the game with her 18 year old daughter Bristol. He goes on to say:
I had, honestly, no idea that the 14-year-old girl, I had no idea that anybody was at the ball game except the governor and I was told at the time she was there with Rudy Giuliani …
First Letterman thought the governor was at the game with her 18 year old daughter. Then he says he thought she was at the game with just Rudy Giuliani. If Letterman really believed the latter statement, on whom did he check to make sure was of legal age, Giulliani?
Letterman’s apology is as pathetic as his show. The only reason he is making any type of statement is because his show is being threatened with the loss of advertising revenue.
God help us!
