Willow Palin Turned On By Hip David Letterman

by | 12th, June 2009

letterman-willow THE story so far: Hip David Letterman is so much smarter than Sarah Palin that when he spots her at a baseball game with her 14-year-old daughter Willow Palin he gets to wondering about the child being sexually assaulted and knocked up.

Letterman says it’s all good clean fun and he was talking about her other daughter being attacked the one, er, who wasn’t there. Hey, only an idiot would think he was lying, right?

Smarter Than The Average Palin

That’s a key to this whole disgrace. Being so very much smarter than Sarah Palin, you’d think Letterman and his writers and his producers would have been able to work out the difference between one Palin daughter and another.

I’m pretty sure Sarah Palin can tell them apart, but the combined brains of Letterman’s CBS team evidently cannot. Nor will they acknowledge their error, if error it was. An assist from Jim Treacher: “Here, Dave, let me try to help you out: ‘Governor Palin, I apologize for my amazingly stupid and cruel jokes about your daughter, and for being too lazy to even make sure I was joking about the correct one. It was wrong to lash out at you through your children, and I won’t ever do it again.’ If you’re capable of saying that, then maybe we’ll think about letting you off the hook.” – Tim Blair

Letterman: Pathetic Dirty-Minded Old Man

People have used other words – disgusting, repellent, abominable, danker than the fetid breath of the nine-bladder’d Arazon, Privy-Cleaner of Hell, et cetera – but pathetic is all I can muster.

But no, it must be funny, because David is funny and hip. Right? Or maybe not; maybe he’s actually a brackish, hermetically-souled guy who’s spend the last twenty years going from table to table with a giant wooden grinder, asking anyone if they want some fresh-ground scorn with that. Say when. Or maybe he’s about as edgy as a soccer ball, and exists only to remind people they were Edgy once, and hence must be ever-blessed with the gift of Wryness and Irony. With those shields we can never grow old, you know. We’ll always be as sharp and perceptive as we were when we were sitting on a cast-off sofa in college, working through a midweek buzz, happily fellated by the preconceptions the TV so charitably provided – James Lileks

Dirty Old Man

My syndicated column today fixes the spotlight on David “The Perv” Letterman’s contempt for women. Yesterday morning, I noted the silence of the feminists. Last night, NOW finally spoke up — but not without taking a holier-than-thou potshot of its own. I suggest they all review the Four Stages of Conservative Female Abuse before wagging their tired old fingers again and lecturing us “inauthentic” women about not doing enough to combat sexism – Michelle Malkin
