Letterman's Top Ten List last night was disgraceful and disgusting. You'd never hear anyone on CBS make such trashy remarks about Pelosi or Michelle Obama or the Obama's children. If a Rep. ever was so classless to do such a thing, they would be tarred and feathered. Such cheap shots from the likes of Letterman, Couric, Joy Behar makes them the TRASH. If they have no better material than constantly talking about the Palin family, I think their careers have hit the wall.

I don't watch him. I saw and read this on the news. My taste in comedy doesn't include skewering women and children.

What are you kidding me? Letterman is part of the cool-kids club. Don't you know it's now acceptable to act like classless a-holes as long as you're a liberal. Of course, anyone else is dubbed a racist and threatened with a hate-crime, but that's to be expected.
Letterman will likely be summoned to obamaland and knighted or given some title like Network Communications Czar.

LOL ... all this outrage now, but statistics bear that most of you folks voted for Obama so you have only yourselves to blame.

I see little difference between what Letterman did and what Don Imus did. Where is the uproar from Al Sharpton? Is this ok because no one is African American? I wonder if A Rod realizes Letterman called him a child molester? Letterman deserves the same treatment as Imus.(or worse)

Google The Late Show With David Letterman. The top ten list is on there. Those "items" were insulting slaps to Palin. His comments about A-Rod and her daughter were in his opening monologue. I don't know if that is on there..but it might be.

There will never be another Carson that's for sure,
although Leno, Conan (sp?) and all of the other late night guys would never have done something so vulgar either.

Oh...
I thought he was referring to Letterman's slu-ty stewardess-look comment. OooK.

Supposedly Letterman's comment was perceived to be aimed at the younger Palin daughter. His explanation was that the "joke" was aimed at Bristol. He also said he has invited the Palin's to New York, at his expense, to be guests on his show.

For what it's worth ... his comments, not mine ..

Since the joke was about getting "knocked up", it seems pretty obvious that the joke was about the 18-year-old who got pregnant last year.

It seems like it's the Palins who are using this to keep themselves in the spotlight.

Actually, Jay Leno made a lot of jokes about Bristol Palin. I'm not saying I enjoyed the humor myself, but it's pretty typical for a late-night comedian.

I though the jokes were borderline, but his "apology" was fuuuunnnnny.

How can people get mad at him for making jokes about Bristol Palin getting knocked up when she actually got knocked up?

The slutty stewardess thing was classic.

Sorry, I don't care which side of the party lines you fall on, the candidates or elected official's children should always be off-limits. Very poor taste Letterman, which is one of the reason's I don't watch him...
