Letterman’s “A Pervert”

..according to Todd & Sarah Palin. The late-night talkshow host told an off-color joke about their 14 yr. old daughter Willow, and now the Palins and the Letterman Show are at a stand-off. Letterman wants them to come on the show so that he can apologize and the Palins do not wish to give the show any bump in ratings.

“Concerning Letterman’s comments about my young daughter (and I doubt he’d ever dare make such comments about anyone else’s daughter): ‘Laughter incited by sexually-perverted comments made by a 62-year-old male celebrity aimed at a 14-year-old girl is not only disgusting, but it reminds us some Hollywood/N.Y. entertainers have a long way to go in understanding what the rest of America understands — that acceptance of inappropriate sexual comments about an underage girl, who could be anyone’s daughter, contributes to the atrociously high rate of sexual exploitation of minors by older men who use and abuse others.’ “

Personally, I think Letterman made a stupid thoughtless joke and didn’t really think through what he was saying. Having said that: To make a joke about a celebrity’s child is at best inappropriate and uncalled for, to make a sexual joke about a minor is completely inexcusable. Back-pedaling and saying he meant the older child (that wasn’t in New York) doesn’t fix it.
