Letterman: Top Ten Highlights Of Sarah Palin's Trip To New York

UPDATE, June 10, 2009: Letterman, Sarah Palin: Apology?


10. Visited New York landmarks she normally only sees from Alaska

9. Laughed at all the crazy-looking foreigners entering the U.N.

8. Made moose jerky on Rachael Ray

7. Keyed Tina Fey's car

6. After a wink and a nod, ended up with a kilo of crack

5. Made coat out of New York City rat pelts

4. Sat in for Kelly Ripa. Regis couldn't tell the difference.

3. Finally met one of those Jewish people Mel Gibson's always talking about

2. Bought makeup from Bloomingdale's to update her "slutty flight attendant" look

1. Especially enjoyed not appearing on Letterman

Letterman is such a spiteful, mean-spirited, liberal, Democrat hack.

Watch Conan O'Brien.

He's liberal, of course, but he's not as angry and dishonorable as Letterman.

Not to mention how David said that A-Rod knocked up Palin's daughter in the 7th inning. From what I understand Willow was the daughter that was with Palin at the game. She's something like 12 years old. I wonder if someone would make a crack about Obama's underage daughters similar to Dave's comment would have a job the next day. Letterman should be fired. At least this will kill his ratings and most likely end his show very soon. Maybe he can then help Couric with her evening new broadcast. Will CBS be asking for a government bailout?

I love Letterman.

I used to be a fan, back when Letterman was clever and funny.

I stopped being a regular viewer around the end of the last century.

That top ten was hilarious. If Palin didn't want people making fun of her and her family then maybe she shouldn't have put them in the spotlight by running as vice president. Letterman doesn't make inappropriate jokes about me - 'cause I'm nobody. You don't wanna be trash talked, don't become famous.

I am sick to death of people saying that if Sarah Palin didn't want her children to be targets she should have kept them hidden, as if she's responsible for the abuse from comic thugs like Letterman.

That's ridiculous. Chelsea Clinton made appearances with her parents and they demanded that no one make fun of her. Every politician drags their kids out.

Do you think Letterman should be allowed to mock Malia and Sasha Obama because Obama trotted them out at the Dem convention?

Let's start trash talking them. Let's mock Michelle Obama's appearance and call her slutty. Good idea?

While the jokes are offensive, I think Gov Palin went off the deep end noting that Letterman was talking about raping her daughter. He used the term "knocked up" which just means getting pregnant as in her daughter slept with the ball player.

It's a term used by common American families especially for young adults. Knocked up doesn't mean raped. Don't like the twist the Palins tried to put on this. Too extreme and makes me question them.

Sure, mock the Obama kids... after one of them gets knocked up.

By the way, the joke's still funny even if you insert Sasha or Malia, because the actual target is A-Rod.

Never mind. As a conservative, you wouldn't get it anyway.

This will definitely not hurt Letterman's ratings... in fact it caused me to watch the show..... whoever anonymous is needs to lighten up and realize its a comedy show meant for jokes.... Palin can get over herself

He was clearly talking about the pregnant imature iresponsible one. DUH. leterman is hilarious. Anon 11:29 is a nimrod. he made a funny joke and issued an explanation and apology. Go crawl back in your cave. Obamas daughters are not put in public by the family you know they didn't campaign with dad all the time they went to SCHOOL and learned facts not fantasy. Bringing kids out to 1 event is far different than having them give interviews, go to campaign stops, and discuss politics and be involved as a "leader" of a group. You are CRAZY my dog has more smarts than you.

and this blog is in no way spiteful, mean-spirited, etc... lol. this blog in general is ridiculous and I find it incredible that Colin Powell is on the wall of shame for taking Rush Limbaugh to task for his inappropriate comments.

I agree the knocked up comment was very inappropriate, but in the comments probably not a good idea to use Clinton's as an example of kids being off limits considering how horribly she was made fun of as a teenager by key leaders of the repub party. always a bad move to bring in kids in a mean-spirited fashion.

Obama said: "I am going to teach [my daughters] first about values and morals, but if they make a mistake, I don't want them punished with a baby."

Sounds like the Obamas would respond to one their daughters getting knocked up very differently than the Palins did.

I doubt anyone would ever know. After all, Obama wouldn't want his daughter PUNISHED with a baby.
