Letterman Lied: He Knew His Rape Joke About Willow Palin Was About a 14 Year Old – UPDATE: Letterman Apologizes

Posted by iusbvision on June 11, 2009

As you have all seen the latest excuse from David latterman is that he thought the daughter that was with Sarah Palin was the 18 year old Bristol and not the 14 year old Willow (in the end it doesnt matter that much, rape jokes are just not funny).

Our friends at Hillbuzz have the evidence and it is pretty compelling:

There is just no way possible for David Letterman to claim, as he did on television last night, that he didn’t know he was brutalizing 14-year-old Willow Palin on Tuesday (but instead wanted to attack her older sister).

When Sarah Palin took this recent trip to New York to celebrate Secretary Seward’s purchase of Alaska, the abolitionist and women’s movements, and to show her daughter a good time in New York, we were surprised it was Willow in tow this time, and not the more usual Piper as her mother’s traveling companion.

Since last week, there’s been non-stop reporting of Willow Palin in upstate New York with her mom and dad. Willow Palin in a parade in Auburn, New York. Willow Palin at Harriet Tubman’s house. Willow Palin with her mother at a Yankees game in the new stadium.

14-year-old WILLOW PALIN.

For someone as obsessed with the Palins as Letterman clearly is, it’s absolutley impossible for him not to know the Palin daughter he said was statutorily raped by Alex Rodriguez (in his joke that “Palin’s daughter got knocked up” at the Yankees game) was 14-year-old Willow.

SOMEONE on his staff did enough research to know the Palins went to the Yankees game — try this experiment for yourself and try Googling anything on Sarah Palin + daughter + Yankees Game, and Willow’s name will pop right up not four words from her mother’s name over and over and over again.

WILLOW, WILLOW, WILLOW.

Letterman knew exactly what he was doing. He wanted to hurt Palin where it matters most: her family. He most likely always had his non-apology prepared ahead of time as well — as we speculated yesterday when we said, “Watch, he’ll probably claim he was talking about Bristol and will think that makes all of this okay. But, he knew it was Willow. Everyone knew Willow was the daughter traveling this time. But Letterman will lie and try to weasel out of this and claim he was attacking the oldest daughter instead.”

Slimeballs have excuses like this on file before they do things they know are wrong. You’ve certainly had people like this in your lives, we bet. Husbands who cheat, buying cans of paint or something ahead of time and keeping them in the trunk so when they “go out to Home Depot for a while to get paint”, they can really pop over to a motel for a fling. But they think they’re smart because they have that paint to walk in with as their alibi.

Only, the receipt in the bag is from yesterday, not tonight.

UPDATE: David Letterman has now officially and fully apologized for his nasty sex jokes about Gov. Palin’s daughter. The apology seems sincere but in all fairness it must also be said that this has been a rating bonanza for Letterman, he himself has helped to keep this in the news by bringing it up repeatedly on his show and he did try to use this to get Gov. Palin on the show. Publicity is publicity is ratings during sweeps week. If this was not sweep time I would be less skeptical of this apology. Lets just face the facts some people have done worse things during sweeps week to get attention (sweeps is the weeks where the ratings are officially taken to set the advertising prices till the following season).

Letterman:

“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. Yeah. But the joke really, in and of itself, can’t be defended. The next day, people are outraged. They’re angry at me because they said, ‘How could you make a lousy joke like that about the 14-year-old girl who was at the ball game?’  And 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 … and I really should have made the joke about Rudy …” (audience applauds) “But I didn’t, and now people are getting angry and they’re saying, ‘Well, how can you say something like that about a 14-year-old girl, and does that make you feel good to make those horrible jokes about a kid who’s completely innocent, minding her own business,’ and, turns out, she was at the ball game. I had no idea she was there. So she’s now at the ball game, and people think that I made the joke about her. And, but still, I’m wondering, ‘Well, what can I do to help people understand that I would never make a joke like this?’ I’ve never made jokes like this as long as we’ve been on the air, 30 long years, and you can’t really be doing jokes like that. And I understand, of course, why people are upset. I would be upset myself.
 
“And then I was watching the Jim Lehrer ‘Newshour’ – this commentator, the columnist Mark Shields, was talking about how I had made this indefensible joke about the 14-year-old girl, and I thought, ‘Oh, boy, now I’m beginning to understand what the problem is here. It’s the perception rather than the intent.’ It doesn’t make any difference what my intent was, it’s the perception. And, as they say about jokes, if you have to explain the joke, it’s not a very good joke.  And I’m certainly – ” (audience applause) “– thank you. Well, my responsibility – I take full blame for that. I told a bad joke. I told a joke that was beyond flawed, and my intent is completely meaningless compared to the perception. And since it was a joke I told, I feel that I need to do the right thing here and apologize for having told that joke. It’s not your fault that it was misunderstood, it’s my fault. That it was misunderstood.” (audience applauds) “Thank you. So I would like to apologize, especially to the two daughters involved, Bristol and Willow, and also to the governor and her family and everybody else who was outraged by the joke. I’m sorry about it and I’ll try to do better in the future. Thank you very much.” (audience applause).
