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

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.

´Separation of media & state,´ is needed for they have morphed into, ´OZ!´

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.

Bloomberg News, by Kathleen Miller    Original Article

WASHINGTON — The Internal Revenue Service and other federal agencies awarded about $415,000 in contracts to a license plate-tracking company before Homeland Security leaders dropped a plan for similar work amid privacy complaints. Federal offices such as the Forest Service and the U.S. Air Force´s Air Combat Command chose Livermore, Calif.-based Vigilant Solutions to provide access to license plate databases or tools used to collect plate information, according to government procurement records compiled by Bloomberg. Vigilant, a closely held company, has received such work since 2009. In February, Jeh Johnson, secretary of the Department of Homeland Security

WASHINGTON— A Western official says the United States is considering deploying about 150 soldiers for military exercises to begin in Poland and Estonia in the next few weeks. The exercises would follow Russia´s buildup of forces near its border with Ukraine and its annexation last month of Ukraine´s Crimean Peninsula. Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel said earlier this week that the U.S. is looking for ways to reassure its NATO allies of its strong commitment to collective defense. The Western official says ground exercises in Poland and Estonia would last about two weeks but that such exercises would continue on a

This week’s POLITICO Magazine contains an uncharacteristic show of gratitude from Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) to President Barack Obama. Under the headline “A bipartisan message to Iran,” the senator thanks the president for signing his S 2195 bill into law, which prevents anyone who has engaged in espionage or terrorism against the U.S. from gaining entry to the country via the United Nations. “Thanks to President Obama for joining a unanimous Congress and signing S 2195 into law,” Cruz begins his piece.

U.S. Border Control agents detained 147 people suspected of being in the country illegally from a stash house Thursday afternoon in Alton — shortly after 81 people were found hiding in makeshift huts in McAllen. The 147 people were discovered in a house at the 8900 block of North Bentsen Palm Drive. Border Patrol spokesman Danny Tirado said he didn’t recall the exact time of the bust, but said it was not too long after the 81 people were found in a brushy area of McAllen northwest of Sprague and North 10th Street about 1 p.m. The 147 people detained

Reports are flying across the Internet about the possibility that Apple’s satellite map app just snapped a pic of the elusive “Loch Ness monster.” Long speculated to be a relative of the dinosaur-era plesiosaur, many have chalked the rumors up to baseless monster talk. Until now. (Photograph) Could this satellite imagery hold a clue that scientists on the hunt have been missing? Could the Loch Ness monster be real?

Bunkersville, Nevada — Cliven Bundy’s ranch, recently the site of a tense stand-off that started over two weeks ago between the federal government and the Bundy family, had morphed into a good old-fashioned family picnic complete with live country music, hamburgers, and hotdogs Friday. A week after the Bureau of Land Management’s armed force left Bunkersville, Bundy and his supporters continue to make the family’s case relating to Bundy’s right to graze his cattle on public land his family has been on for many years. Bundy told Breitbart News the only communication he has received from the BLM recently has been

The president´s speeches may need to be accompanied by a laugh track from now on, considering the crickets he received at his appearance in Community College of Allegheny County, in Oakdale, Pa., on Wednesday. Although he tried to tout his new spending program, both Obama´s talking points and attempts at humor didn´t go over so well: At the end, when the president walked back from the podium to smile and wave at the roughly 60 people in the bleachers 20 feet behind him, he faced a unfriendly wall of faces. The White House video of the bleacher’s front rank shows three men with their hands crossed, one with his hands stuck

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon. She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press. The “Vertigo” actress, considered one of the great beauties in her day, posted a note on her Facebook wall Thursday, acknowledging that she’d gotten fat injections in her face and addressing her halted

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent
