Letterman Admits He
Apologized to Palin So
He Could ‘Go Forward
Making Fun of Her’

Newsbusters, by Brent Baker

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 1/7/2013 5:59:31 AM

Sounds like a personal vendetta ahead of genuine regret. CBS Late Show host David Letterman admitted to Oprah Winfrey, in an interview first aired Sunday night, that he backtracked after outrage erupted following a sex joke he told involving Sarah Palin’s then-14-year-old daughter Willow, not because it was highly inappropriate, but primarily so he could continue ridiculing Willow’s mother: I’ll tell you why I apologized. I felt like Sarah Palin was somebody I wanted to continue to be able to make fun of and I felt like if I don’t apologize, if I don’t sincerely express my regret,

Letterman, you´re not even funny anymore; just a sour-faced, leftist, political hack not unlike Bill Maher.

What an idiot. So he can make sick jokes about sex with a 14 year old, apologize so he can continue to attack the 14 year old´s mother?

That is the most demented reasoning I´ve ever read.

THIS is what is wrong with America, and that people tune in to watch this crap.

And the Kennedy Center just honored him! Folks, we live in an alternate universe. I wish there was some way people could boycott him and show that trashing Palin is not a good thing! wAIT, there is, we could not buy products that are on his show and NOT watch his show! Wish someone would organize a boycott!!

Totally agree with posters above - of all people to open their yaps when letterman is probably the worst host ever. His morals, his mouth and what comes out of it should be ignored. He is stupid and not funny or witty.

I dunno, I´m with #5 on this one. He was wrong; he knows he was wrong; he apologized.

Not only so, but in his words to Oprah, he makes clear that he felt regret for his mistake in naming the wrong daughter. It´s hard to get a much better apology than that.

Now, is he still a jerk? Sure, but learn to tell the difference, and learn that even a jerk can do something right from time to time.

Letterman also rightly admits he "doesn´t know much."

... and he apologized for having affairs with woman on his staff..

Kind hearts excuse such things, mainly because Letterman plays Left.

I never really cared for him or his humor. I did like the top 10 list, but that was the work of his writers, not him. With the ´net I can get my top 10 fix occasionally, and not debase myself listening to this cretin.

It is a shame that nobody studies the style and manner of Johnny Carson.

Thanks #11 ´Than space in his mouth where a tooth should be makes him look like, Melvin E, Newman, after a lobotomy.´
and to all the other posters making nasty comments about being gapped-toothed.
I have a birth defect and am missing the two teeth that are beside my front teeth. Orthodontics could move my front teeth together but I would have spaces between my other teeth and alter my perfect bite.
So, family, my overbite and missing teeth make it easier for me to keep my mouth shut when I should be sensitive to the feelings of other people.

It is truly pathetic when low rent liberal hacks like Letterman are still on the air. This stinkweed has never been funny and his humor equates to that other hack Maher. Both of these gasbags also suffer from Palin Derangement Syndrome. The "jokes" about Palin is one thing but to attack her children especially Trig is beyond disgusting. These same liberal weasels would be up in arms if ever a joke was made about the "beautiful" Clinton spawn or the two Obamanation ewoks. Letterman and the other leftist "comedians all go and fly kites in a thunder storm.

Throughout their PC performances, such theatrical leftists routinely target mainstream Americans for scorn, ...albeit with MUCH scripted sarcastic humor, while charging them for tickets to see their shows. WHENEVER accomplished & successful Americans step up and effectively express the principles of Liberty which have always united all Americans the entire radicalized statist dem media targets them for scorn because they represent the American spirit and heart of every one of us who love this country and that for which it stands! The PC leftists thus targeted Gov. Sarah Palin, just as they had others in the past, -Judge Bork, Justice Thomas, Dan Quayle, Pres. Readan, and on & on.

The irrational dem pols/hollyweird/alphabet TV puppets/etc. simply cannot stand the threat to their illusionary BIG Government house-of-cards which is presented by articulate, passionate, cheery & optimistic AMERICANS!!! God bless each and every authentic American patriot!...And help we the people, -the American voters, to discern the socialist counterfeit political scammers among us, for they do seem have the microphone in the arena right now.

I think Sarah reminds that obnoxious, buck-toothed geek of the girl he couldn´t have in high school. Now, she´s grown to be the kind of girl who wouldn´t work on his staff because having to flirt with him as a job requirement would turn her stomach.

#47,

My apologies. However, the disgust comes out when people like Letterman make a living attacking others and slap themselves on the back on t.v. for being "witty".

Some people with physical disabilities or differences are seldom mocked because they learn to compensate with friendly personalities and are generally likeable people. This doesn´t mean there aren´t jerks in the world looking to harp on the imperfections of others to boost their sagging, pathetic egos.

Although picking on Letterman´s appearance isn´t nice, lots of people feel justified in doing so because of his attacks against Sarah Palin and her children and his obnoxious treatment of the people in his own life. It´s not really right, but it´s easy to justify it.

I used to like him. I remember when he moved channels. The second or third night, Terry Bradshaw was his guest. Unbeknownst to Terry, Letterman played a clip of one a song Terry sang on some album in the 70´s (a la William Shatner doing "Lucy in the Sky). Terry laughed with embarrassment, and then slapped David´s face. David leapt to his feet, obviously fearful, as Terry kept laughing. TV gold. I can´t find that clip on You Tube.

After David´s heart surgery, he became a bitter, hateful, dried up husk of person. I´ve seen it happen to others after they have bypass surgery. Strange.

Irish Deputy First Minister and ex-IRA commander Martin McGuinness has arrived at Windsor Castle this evening, for a State Banquet to mark the visit of Ireland´s President Michael D Higgins - the first ever visit by an Irish head of state. Hours earlier President Higgins delivered a historic speech at the Houses of Parliament - the first time Ireland´s head of state has been given the honour - telling politicians the two countries now have a closeness that once seemed unachieveable. His four-day trip is a sign that relations between the two countries have been transformed since the Queen´s historic

A soldier who survived the gruesome murders at Fort Hood last week penned a letter to Texas lawmakers on Monday, urging them to prevent another tragedy from happening again by allowing soldiers to carry personal firearms on base. “Stripped of my God-given Right to arm myself, the only defensive posture I had left was to lie prostrate on the ground, and wait to die,” writes First Lieutenant Patrick Cook of the 49th Transportation Battalion, who witnessed the massacre firsthand. “[T]his past Wednesday I found myself trapped in an enclosed room with fourteen of my fellow Soldiers, one of whom was

More mothers have been staying home with their children since the recession ended, but a growing number of them say that’s primarily because they can’t find a job, according to a new study. Almost three in 10 mothers with children under 18 living with them are stay-at-home moms, an analysis of Census Bureau data by the Pew Research Center showed. That is a 3 percentage point jump from the depth of the recession in 2008. (Snip) After decades of decline, the share of mothers with children in the house has been growing since around 2000.

Attorney General Eric Holder got into a heated argument with a Republican congressman Tuesday over the still-pending contempt case against him. Holder was testifying before the House Judiciary Committee when Rep. Louie Gohmert, R-Texas, began pressing him for documents in a separate investigation. Gohmert brought up an apparent sore spot, referencing the 2012 House vote finding Holder in contempt of Congress. "I realize that contempt is not a big deal to our attorney general, but it is important that we have proper oversight," Gohmert said. A visibly annoyed Holder said: "You don´t want to go there, buddy." Leaning back in

Here is a college quiz. While many parts of the U.S. economy struggle to recover from the Great Recession of 2008-09, one domestic industry is experiencing a technology-driven expansion in which American innovations have led to countless new company startups, a surge in hiring and some of the highest-paying entry-level jobs for graduating college seniors. How are the nation´s universities responding so students might prepare for a promising career in this growing and intellectually challenging field? By largely ignoring it. Why? Because the industry is oil and gas. This fact may surprise the casual campus observer, since almost every U.S. college

CONCORD, N.H. — Republican Scott Brown said Monday he will kick off his next campaign for U.S. Senate in Portsmouth, the New Hampshire city he says played a special role in his childhood. The former Massachusetts senator will formally announce his bid for the seat held by Democrat Jeanne Shaheen at the Portsmouth Harborside Hotel on Thursday night. “I remember our house on Islington Street, strolling through Strawbery Banke with my grandfather, and catching a show at Prescott Park. Now, Portsmouth is going to be the start of the next chapter in my life,” he told supporters in an email.

Sen. Jeanne Shaheen sure talks a lot about “outside” money. She raises campaign funds by claiming to protect the state from outside “special interests” who might help Scott Brown. Those poor donors probably have no idea how much money Shaheen raises from out-of-state special interests. According to the Center for Responsive Politics, which tracks campaign donations, Shaheen has raised 75 percent of her 2014 campaign cash from out of state. For her career, Shaheen’s top 10 metropolitan areas for campaign donations are, in order: Boston; New York City; Washington, D.C.; Los Angeles; Lowell, Mass; San Francisco; Manchester; Chicago; Portsmouth; Philadelphia.

STORRS, Conn.– Jubilant fans celebrating UConn’s Monday night national basketball championship win smashed a window in an engineering building, broke street lights and overturned furniture inside the school’s student union. Campus police had made 30 arrests by 1:30 a.m. Tuesday, while state police had made others and more were expected, said University of Connecticut spokesman Tom Breen. “A lot of it was alcohol-related,” Breen said. “There was breech of peace, destruction of property, and we had a fireworks charge.” Most of the property damage was minor, he said. No serious injuries had been reported. “By far, most of our students

Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal will headline South Carolina´s annual Silver Elephant dinner in June, one of the major events on the state´s Republican calendar and a key function for any potential presidential candidate hoping to play in the first-in-the-South primary. “We are proud to welcome Gov. Bobby Jindal to South Carolina,” South Carolina GOP Chairman Matt Moore said Tuesday confirming the choice. (Snip) Jindal will travel to Columbia on June 6 to deliver his keynote remarks. Other potential Republican presidential hopefuls have headlined the event in recent years, including Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, in 2013 and Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla.,

UPS sent 17 more Queens drivers packing Friday night, bringing the total number of workers fired in an ongoing labor dispute to 36, the Daily News has learned. The shipping company fired 19 workers a week ago and informed another 17 they were no longer on payroll effective Friday, said spokesman Steve Gaut. The remaining 214 will be let go as replacement drivers are trained, the company has said. United Parcel Service decided to fire all 250 of its Queens delivery drivers after they participated in a 90-minute work stoppage two months ago. They were protesting the dismissal of a

Former Florida governor Jeb Bush said Sunday that he will base his decision on whether to run for president in 2016 on whether he thinks he can mount a campaign that would transcend the modern-day mechanics of such a run. Bush, the second-oldest son of former president George H. W. Bush and younger brother of George W. Bush, spoke at an event marking the 25th anniversary of his father´s presidency at the library and museum that bears the patriarch´s name. The event was closed to reporters, but moderated by Fox News anchor Shannon Bream and portions of the event were later

Kathryn Riffenburg decided on a closed casket for her baby´s funeral. She didn´t want her family to see what whooping cough, her son´s first illness, had done to 9-week-old Brady Alcaide. The nearly forgotten disease, which has in recent years afflicted thousands of Americans, left Brady´s tiny body swollen and unrecognizable. So his mother dressed him in a white baptismal suit and hat and tucked him into a tiny white casket. Brady´s burial came just four weeks after his first laugh — inspired by her version of I´m a Little Teapot — and two weeks after his family learned that he had

Rev. Al Shaprton, the controversial civil rights leader-turned-broadcaster, was a confidential FBi informant for years and helped the feds put members of the Genovese and Gambino organized crime families behind bars, it was revealed Monday in a sensational exposé. President Barack Obama will speak this week for the second time at the annual meeting of Sharpton´s National Action Network, raising questions about the group´s special treatment. Sharpton´s special relationship with the Justice Department may also explain why his NAN has been allowed to skirt responsibility for $1.9 million in back taxes and penalties it has owed the IRS since 2006

For Dems, a problem with seniors

Democrats are facing a senior problem that could get even worse this year. The party has traditionally had trouble with older voters, losing the group aged 65 and over by 21 points in 2010 — when Republicans picked up 63 seats — and by 12 points in the 2012 presidential race. Seniors are the GOP’s most reliable voting bloc in midterm years, turning out in higher numbers than Democratic base voters. A recent Gallup poll showed seniors have become even more Republican over the last two decades; in 2013, 48 percent considered themselves Republican. That spells trouble for Democrats, who are already facing

When friends and family members gathered recently at the White House for a private celebration of Michelle Obama’s 50th birthday, one of the invited partygoers was a former paid FBI Mafia informant. That same man attended February’s state dinner in honor of French President Francois Hollande. He was seated with his girlfriend at a table adjacent to President Barack Obama, who is likely unaware that, according to federal agents, his guest once interacted with members of four of New York City’s five organized crime families. He even secretly taped some of those wiseguys using a briefcase that FBI technicians outfitted

LONDON - Peaches Geldof, the wild-child second daughter of concert organizer Bob Geldof who worked as a model, a television presenter and a fashion writer and filled the pages of British tabloids with her late-night antics, has died at age 25. There was no immediate word on the cause of her death at her home in Wrotham, Kent, southeast England. Her father said in a statement Monday: "Peaches has died. We are beyond pain." "She was the wildest, funniest, cleverest, wittiest and the most bonkers of all of us," he said. "Writing 'was' destroys me afresh. What a beautiful child. How is this possible that we will not see her again? How is that bearable? We loved her and will cherish her forever."

A married freshman Republican congressman who campaigned on his Christian, conservative values apologized Monday after surveillance video surfaced purportedly showing him in a lengthy liplock with a staffer. In the Dec. 23 footage, obtained by a local newspaper, Rep. Vance McAllister, R-La. - who ahead of his election last fall ran multiple campaign ads trumpeting his faith and family - is seen kissing and embracing a woman for about 20 seconds at his Monroe, La., district office. The Ouachita Citizen reports the woman is the congressman´s 33-year-old part-time scheduler, who is also married.

Call it the million-worker mystery. A large chunk of American adults are no longer in the labor force. That has left economists divided over how many of them are voluntarily not working-or even looking for work-because they wanted to retire, go to school or take care of family members, versus how many have been forced out because they couldn´t find a job. (snip) Shierholz estimates that there are currently more than 5 million missing workers who are not included in the unemployment rate because they are neither working nor looking for work, but who might be if the job market

The Democratic National Committee is furious by a conservative website’s ad campaign that depicts Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi clad in a bikini in a provocative pose with her tongue sticking out. Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee, called on Republicans to press Breitbart News to remove the artwork — one of several suggestive images on the website promoting the new California site. The image of Pelosi, beneath one of California Gov. Jerry Brown’s face photo-shopped onto a flexing body builder, includes the sub-head: “Because you can’t make this s— up.” “To say the least,

Add Bryan Cranston, the star of TV´s recent hit "Breaking Bad" and a new Broadway play about former President Lyndon B. Johnson, to Team Obamacare. In an interview with Yahoo News “global anchor” Katie Couric, the actor called Obamacare the highlight of President Obama´s legacy. “Now’s the time to stake a claim to leave your legacy,” he encouraged Obama. “I personally believe that his health care program is fantastic. Yes, there are problems. Anything worth while is going to go through a growing pains period. But this is his legacy and I think it’s a great one because I don’t

As the House prepares for several key votes on former Internal Revenue Service employee Lois G. Lerner and potential legal action, analysts say she and her attorney have mishandled their case by picking and choosing when they want to talk, and to whom they are willing to talk. Ms. Lerner faces a vote in the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee on Thursday that could begin the process of accusing her of contempt of Congress. The Ways and Means Committee announced that it will hold a vote Wednesday on whether to officially accuse Ms. Lerner of breaking the law by
