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,
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!!
This imbecile of a clown doesn´t belong at the Ed Sullvan theater in New York but rather travelling under the big top with Barnum & Bailey introducing the world´s smallest giant and the world´s tallest midget (two averaged size individual of course)! What a bucked toothed has been that never was. I´m similar to a previous poster in that I stopped watching this loser in about 1987.
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 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.
Knowing the difference between right and wrong is a healthy individual. Knowing the difference between getting CAUGHT and not getting caught is the sign of a mental disease....a perfect description for this creep.
Used to love watching David Letterman, even when he was ´second banana´ on late night TV. Now that I know what lies underneath and behind that stupid grin of his, all his witty charm is not there anymore. Haven´t watched him in years - don´t plan to.
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.
´Separation of media & state,´ is needed for they have morphed into, ´OZ!´
#56, good one! You are far more eloquent (and charitable) than I.
Leper-man is the de facto ad hoc leader of a New Brigade... he´s an A-Number-One A-hole, amateur version.
He´s an acolyte of our Peerless Leader... The World´s Top Professional Nonstop A-hole.
Turds of a Feather... mock America together. May they retire soon to adjoining mansions just before their portion of Hawaii... disappears under the rising ocean waters of Man Made Global Warming... Glug! (& take alwhore with you)
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.
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.
Chris Matthews is crazy. Nevertheless, when left-wingers talk openly with one another, their craziness can be revealing. That is the case, I think, with this remarkable MSNBC clip. Matthews, fresh from his kneepad interview with President Obama, praises what he terms a uniquely brilliant insight by Al Sharpton: South Africa’s white politicians of the apartheid era were more patriotic than today’s Republicans: I haven’t heard anything as smart as what I heard Reverend Sharpton say a moment go in five years. The difference between the way F.W. de Klerk handled the need for change and the election – democratic election
Although the jobless rate in November fell to its lowest level since he took office, President Obama called on Republican lawmakers Saturday to spend tens of billions on unemployment benefits that are set to expire this month. “It shouldn’t be a partisan issue,” Mr. Obama said in his weekly address. But he said the “economic lifeline” is in jeopardy. “All because Republicans in this Congress — which is on track to be the most unproductive in history — have so far refused to extend it” Mr. Obama said. If Congress doesn’t act before lawmakers leave on their holiday break, about
Think all there is to say about the War on Christmas has already been said? Think again. With her trademark fearlessness and verve, Governor Sarah Palin’s new book, Good Tidings and Great Joy: Protecting the Heart of Christmas, offers readers an impassioned, informative, and unapologetic defense of the sacredness of the season. “If I’m for Christmas, it’s only because I’m for Christ,” writes Gov. Palin. “There is no ultimate peace apart from Christ, and it is Christ who empowers every act of ‘goodwill toward men’ in our otherwise fallen hearts.” The book’s blending of personal experience with discussions of political
President Barack Obama said Saturday he believed the chances for a comprehensive nuclear agreement with Iran are 50-50 or worse, yet defended diplomacy as the best way to prevent Tehran from acquiring atomic weapons. During a question-and-answer session with a pro-Israel audience, Obama said he wasn´t naive about the odds for a successful final agreement between world powers and Iran next year, building on the recent six-month interim deal.(Snip) The president´s remark was somewhat startling. Obama has tried to allay the fears of many Israelis and some Americans that his administration last month promised to ease economic pressure too much
One in four applications for ObamaCare was botched during the process of forwarding the electronic files to insurers over the last two months, officials admitted Friday. The startling 25 percent error rate for October and November means that thousands who signed up on Healthcare.gov during that time could face problems when they try to use their new policies starting Jan. 1. The error rate fell to 10 percent this month, after repairs were made to the troubled Web site. But insurance-industry leaders are warning that the transmission situation is far from resolved. “The new process put in place this week is
Something bad has been in the water at Los Angeles International Airport for the last several weeks. With the city in the midst of a sweeping $2-billion transformation of the Tom Bradley International Terminal, airlines that use the facility´s old and new gates have been unable to replenish their aircraft with drinking water because of contamination in the building´s plumbing. According to airport emails obtained by The Times, the water is brown and contains high levels of bacteria and particles of copper, brass and rust. Officials have conducted a review to see if contamination has also surfaced in the water
Agents from the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) are using Google Maps as part of their tool kit to audit taxpayers and organizations, The Daily Caller has learned. A redacted IRS letter dated Sept. 8, 2011 reveals that at least in one case the IRS’s examiners used photos of a property, obtained through Google Maps, as evidence to revoke the 501(c)(4) status of a homeowner’s association. “The road consists of a two-mile loop around the inside of the property. It goes not have any sidewalks or bicycle lanes. The examining agent printed and copied a map from Google Maps (www.google.com) into
Last summer on his $100 million family tour of Africa, Barack Obama hoped for a priceless photo op with Nelson Mandela, the ailing freedom pioneer who went from prison cell to the presidency of South Africa. Mandela´s family suggested that wouldn’t happen. So, the Obamas did a photo op in Mandela´s former prison cell. Which Obama’s White House quickly tweeted upon word of the icon´s passing at 95. [Skip] But Obama was also caught staring at television coverage of Mandela’s passing, which became Obama’s Photo of the Day.
More young men in California rise in pitch at the end of their sentences when talking, new research shows. This process is known as "uptalk" or "valleygirl speak" and has in the past been associated with young females, typically from California or Australia.But now a team says that this way of speaking is becoming more frequent among men.The findings were presented at the Meeting of the Acoustical Society of America in California. "We found use of uptalk in all of our speakers, despite their diverse backgrounds in socioeconomic status, ethnicity, bilingualism and gender," said Amanda Ritchart, a linguist at the University of
DAVID CORN: I saw a president who remains frustrated with the political-media culture that he has to work within, and that he´s looking to rally people, students here, and supporters, and people within the media. CHRIS MATTHEWS: But David Corn, you skeptic. He came to us today. He came amongst us. CORN: He´s trying to rally people behind this vision that he´s been promoting for a couple years. FINEMAN: By the way, he did it the end here, today, Chris, not by defending specifics, but by explaining why he´s in the game to begin with. And I don´t know about you, he´s
The most curious thing of all about the November jobs report released on Friday was the huge drop in the unemployment rate — and the fact that the Labor Department chose not to disclose that the data going into that figure are under investigation for falsification. On Nov. 19, I broke the news in my column that the Census Bureau, which collects data that goes into the jobless rate on behalf of Labor, had caught one of its enumerators fabricating interviews in 2010. The culprit said back then (and to me during an interview) that he was told to do so by
Denver - A baker who refused to make a wedding cake for a same-sex ceremony must serve gay couples despite his religious beliefs or face fines, a judge said Friday. The order from administrative law judge Robert N. Spencer said Masterpiece Cakeshop in suburban Denver discriminated against a couple "because of their sexual orientation by refusing to sell them a wedding cake for their same-sex marriage." The order says the cake-maker must "cease and desist from discriminating" against gay couples. Although the judge did not impose fines in this case, the business will face penalties if it continues to turn away gay

In February, the Bush family’s personal emails were hacked by Guccifer, a hacker who uncovered photographs of former President George H. W. Bush in a hospital bed and George W. Bush’s oil paintings in the process. It seems Guccifer has struck again, this time targeting former President Bill Clinton and the Clinton Library. The hacker has reportedly uncovered doodles of Clinton drawing on what were, at the time, classified documents. Among the doodles is apparently a picture of a penis. The document uncovered is a briefing of the strategic measures the United States could take prior Clinton’s decision to intervene in
