Letterman: I was joking about Bristol, not Willow

(Another HT to HotAir)

Here’s a preview of Letterman’s monologue tonight:

“We were, as we often do, making jokes about people in the news and we made some jokes about Sarah Palin and her daughter [Bristol]… and now they’re upset with me…” Letterman says on tonight’s show. “These are not jokes made about her 14-year-old daughter. I would never, never make jokes about raping or having sex of any description with a 14-year-old girl…. Am I guilty of poor taste? Yes. Did I suggest that it was okay for her 14-year-old daughter to be having promiscuous sex? No.” Saying he hopes he’s “cleared part of this up,” Letterman extended an invitation to Palin to come on the show as a guest.

Here’s Allahpundit’s analysis of the whole situation. Pretty funny stuff.

He wasn’t joking about her 14-year-old daughter being a prostitute, silly. He was joking about her 18-year-old daughter being a prostitute. Perfectly legal. Whew!

Don’t you see? He’d never condone statutorily raping a girl who’s underage. All he meant to do was goof on the idea that Palin’s eldest daughter, a single mother with a baby, is a whore. Everything cool now? Let’s move on.

  1. So apparently we’re almost neighbors and stuff. I got my LL.M. at UW in 2004-2005. My advice about being conservative in Seattle? Don’t. Move. Its somewhat freindlier here in Tacoma.

      Lol, that’s great advice, but it’s a little too late. Moving home to Maple Valley for the summer, then back down here for three more quarters.
