Bristol already had a kid . . it’s the next daughters turn at that abstinence thingy.
What is it with Letterman and other Neanderthals and unwed mothers?
The trend is increasing towards having children out of wedlock even for the upper classes:
"The mothers are part of a far-reaching social trend unfolding across the United States: The number of children being born out of wedlock has risen sharply in recent years, driven primarily by women in their 20s and 30s opting to have children without getting married. Nearly four out of every 10 births are now to unmarried women. "
Of course, the fool I was arguing with said "Can you imagine the outrage if somebody had made that joke about Obama's daughter?" Because an 11 and 9 year old are totally the same to some apparently.
Dave is just being prescient, as Tina points out.
By the way, when is the Carribou Barbie Doll hitting the shelves? Will there be an inflatable version? Oh, how bout the Real Doll Caribou Barbie model. Why does that half wit make me think of sex dolls anyway?
what if any kid of a famous controversial person becomes fair game to the media?
what would that be like, Dan?
If Dan shoves his kid in front of the media and uses that kid as a prop for some silly agenda... then sure, the media has every right to pick on that kid.
Doubtful that Letterman knew which daughter was along for the ride, probably on the Alaska State tab.
The joke was really more on A-Rod, who just bounced from Madonna to Kate Hudson.
and you look like an asshole.
holy fucking hell, when will people get tired of this shit?
You mean like the comments Republicans made about Chelsea Clinton? Funny, Republicans didn't have any problems with mocking her and she was only 12.
like writing a book called 'the kid'?
What if it's a clown being raped? You can't tell me that's not funny.
It's just good ol' fashioned slut shaming.
It's only a matter of time before Willow follows in her family's footsteps...
I will let Dan (or someone who has actually read it) comment on that, but from what I gather the book doesn't use the kid as a major political prop and force upon the nation a hypocrisy therein.
You are grasping at straws. But then, I wouldn't expect much else from a troll like you.
Oh, Ms. Guvner, when the next one gets preggers will you rethink your abstinence only policy, or are you gonna quit hunting elk and start hunting teenage boys?
Knocked up. . .that's what us Hoosiers call it when the teens are fornicatin' and get. . . knocked up.
she WWF all the way. Newt can't compete. She may ride this to a nomination and another defeat. In fact, you know, maybe she'll be defeated for president for the next 16 years.....and she will laugh her way to the bank the whole time.
Think of it as WWF.
"Oh honey look, that old man made a sex joke about you, I'm going to call a press conference really put a fine point on that joke about you being fucked by an idiot baseball player. Enjoy high school!"
No. No it doesn't.
Sarah Palin made her parenting methods fair game. That does not make her children fair game. It does not make Chelsea Clinton or Amy Carter or Sasha and Malia Obama or even Jenna and the other one fair game. They do not control their parents. Even as adults, they can control themselves, if they have been brought up well or are able to overcome their circumstances, but they cannot make their parents into smart, discreet, unselfish, non-publicity-whores people, any more than their parents can make their children into angelic, abstinent anti-Aparthheid activists or heating-fuel-for-the-poor spokesmen or board members for the School of American Ballet -- although they can try. Acnyway, Sarah deserves any shit she gets. Bristol, not so much.
but as much as i love letterman, come on people - today should have been all about Colbert and his DADT formidable opponent segment last night.
is Dan asleep at the switch? Rahm's man, Obama, tiptoes around DADT while Colbert travels to Iraq and does a piece in front of our troops that shines a light on the stupidity of DADT. (by the way, they seemed to be able to handle it.)
Stephen Colbert has the largest, brassiest balls in the world. first he took on George and just as viciously, the Press (with a capital P) at the correspondents' dinner. now, he's in Iraq and taking on the subject of DADT.
meanwhile, Rahm ( mister "tough guy-take no prisoners-f you- don't mess with me or i'll have you for lunch") is hiding under his chair because he thinks NOM has power.
it's all about Colbert, people. get on board.
cuz if you miss it (miss it, miss it), i'll feel sorry for you....
MSNBC’s whorish Contessa Brewer can’t understand why Sarah Palin took offense to being called slutty
That being said, I do believe Letterman's joke about BRISTOL was over the line as well as the "slutty flight attendant" joke. I'm glad that Dave went back and "clarified" the joke for those who don't seem to be able to get it, although he shouldn't have had to. I appreciate that Dave also admitted "Am I guilty of poor taste? Yes". Although, as anyone that regularly watches him knows, that's just the nature of the show.
For those of you that are complaining about this, just get over it already. He already retracted his statement, said he regretted saying it, and admitted that he was guilty of poor taste.
What's really poor taste, is the fact that the Palin's are using this (as well as their daughters) as a media stunt, with their false outrage, in order to keep themselves in the spotlight. Who knows this issue alone may have brought in another half million for her PAC (That's Political Action Committee for those of who are completely clueless on these things). That's why they are pulling this stunt. It really doesn't have ALL that much (although maybe a little) to do with their anger over the statements. It's a political ploy, and unfortunately Letterman unknowingly helped them out.
