So, apparently there is a flap about a recent David Letterman segment in which he took a couple of pot shots at Sarah Palin‘s trip to NYC. Now, Letterman is a comedian, as most of us realize, but someone forgot to tell the thinnest-skinned governor in America this, as she’s been whining about it for the last few days.
At one point in his bit, Letterman made a crack about A-Rod knocking up Palin’s daughter at a Yankees game. The part of America that actually uses their brains obviously recognized this as a Bristol joke. You know… making fun of Palin’s 18 year-old daughter — the one who got got her knocked-up self thrust into the national spotlight by Mom?
Well, as it turns out, Sarah Palin attended a Yankees game, not with Bristol, but with her 14 year old daughter, Willow (someone in Alaska needs to pass a law forbidding any Palin from naming a kid). So Sarah Palin’s manufactured-outrage-du-jour is that Letterman was making jokes about her 14 year-old being raped. WTF?
Dave, to his credit, responded to Caribou Barbie’s whining relatively seriously, and even invited her to come on his show. Watch it:
But Alaska’s Dingbat Governor is sticking to her “Dave wants to rape my kids” spin that she’s been ginning up. HuffPo has her response:
Sarah Palin responded Thursday morning to Dave’s invitation to appear on his show in a statement to Foxnews.com: “The Palins have no intention of providing a rating’s boost for David Letterman by appearing on his show,” the statement read. “Plus, it would be wise to keep Willow away from David Letterman.”
Wow. Fuck You, Sarah Palin. Fuck You.
