Letterman apologizes

I'll just let Allah at HotAir take this one:

"A sneak preview of tonight’s monologue from EW. He wasn’t joking about her 14-year-old daughter being a prostitute, silly. He was joking about her 18-year-old daughter being a prostitute. Perfectly legal. Whew!

We were, as we often do, making jokes about people in the news and we made some jokes about Sarah Palin and her daughter [Bristol]… and now they’re upset with me…” Letterman says on tonight’s show. “These are not jokes made about her 14-year-old daughter. I would never, never make jokes about raping or having sex of any description with a 14-year-old girl…. Am I guilty of poor taste? Yes. Did I suggest that it was okay for her 14-year-old daughter to be having promiscuous sex? No.” Saying he hopes he’s “cleared part of this up,” Letterman extended an invitation to Palin to come on the show as a guest.

Don’t you see? He’d never condone statutorily raping a girl who’s underage. All he meant to do was goof on the idea that Palin’s eldest daughter, a single mother with a baby, is a whore. Everything cool now? Let’s move on."

The thing is that this is not an isolated incident. This kind of vile crap comes from the left on a regular basis. And I'm not talking little anonymous trolls on the internet. I'm talking comedians, TV talk show hosts, actors, and movies, and leftwing politicians. I'm sick of it.

Just like the recent "Hate F**k" article in Playboy about conservative women, this kind of thing never gets attention until the right in the blogosphere scream so loudly about it that the MSM finally pay attention.

Many might bring up Rush as an example of the other side fo the coin. But it's not even the same coin. The difference is that Rush never says anything as vile as Letterman says. I've never heard him say anything vile at all. He just doesn't, no matter what the leftwing loons in the blogosphere say. Also, Rush's job is to talk politics. That is what he does. But with the left in Hollywood, that ISN'T their job. We tune in to be entertained, not insulted. When you tune into Rush, you know what you are getting.

There isn't a day that doesn't go by that I'm not more convinced of how right we on the right really are.
