Of course David Letterman crossed the line. Of course he was wrong to make that kind of joke, no matter which Palin daughter he intended to malign. And he will pay. And he does owe America’s women an apology.
I believe him when he says he was talking about the 18-year-old, not the 14-year-old. But that still does not make it right.
I also believe the Palins like the fight a little too much. There is a disconnect. Look at the smirk on her face as she relishes returning to the national spotlight. Take the time to deconstruct Sarah Palin’s statements.
“Statutory rape. Keep daughter away from Letterman.“
Obfuscation, obfuscation, obfuscation. She even attempts to politicize the event. All of which is unnecessary. Letterman’s words are bad enough.
Sarah Palin is incapable of straight talk. On purpose? Or something else?
