A spokesman for the Olive Garden disputed a report from Politicothat the restaurant chain pulled its advertising from the David Letterman show due to jokes about Sarah Palins daughter.
Information reported today by Andy Barr of Politico regarding Olive Gardens advertising on the Late Show with David Letterman was erroneous. No authorized spokesperson for the company confirmed the information in his report, said Olive Garden spokesman Rich Jeffers in an email to The Vote.
The Olive Garden media schedule is planned months in advance. The schedule for the Late Show with David Letterman was completed earlier this month. We take all guest concerns seriously. And, as always, we will factor those concerns in as we plan our advertising schedule in the future, he continued.

Sometimes it helps to know what words actually mean:
Definitions of pederast:
* a man who has sex (usually sodomy) with a boy as the passive partner
* Pederasty or paederasty refers to an erotic relationship, sexually expressed or not, between an adolescent boy and an adult male outside his immediate family.
* pederasty - sexual relations between a man and a boy (usually anal intercourse with the boy as a passive partner)
* pederasty - Practicing homosexuality, particularly a man with a boy.
* pederasty - or the Shotaro complex, generally refers to an attraction toward adolescent, or older, underage males.
So you mean to say Letterman is a buggerer of boys?
How do you figure that? Personal experience?
I second that.
Mega kudos to you...that’s the best comment i’ve read in quite a while,and absolutely spot on.Thanks.
It doesn’t matter what a private individual says on a forum about somebody. It does matter when a public figure uses their broadcast position to millions of viewers to browbeat, humiliate, slander and sully young girls.
Lots of conservatives like Rush and appreciate him taking the conservative position to the airwaves.
If you don’t like him, fine, but based on your dislike of him and a few of your other remarks, you don’t seem like you belong here with conservatives.
Hellman’s Mayonnaise has pulled their ads.
Since May 31, 2009
Well, well. Welcome to Free Republic.
Although my vocabulary far exceeds yours, I was mistaken to use the word “pederast.” I have heard others use that word to describe an adult who has a sexual interest in teenagers. An adult with a sexual interest in children is a pedophile. An adult with a sexual interest in teenagers is a pederast, or so I was led to believe by others. Since I am neither a pedophile, a pederast, or an adult with a sexual interest in teenagers, I wasn’t caught up on the vernacular. Apparently you were. Good for you!
The word I was looking for was hebephile or ephebephile. The terms for an adult who is sexually attracted to teenagers — to someone entering or in puberty, but who is not yet a full-grown adult.
Thank you for correcting me.
Interesting that you can’t come up with anything better than, “How do you figure that? Personal experience?” Considering I didn’t know what the correct word was, and you did, I think you ought to be asking yourself that question.
Now go back to your mommy’s basement and re-read what I wrote you in my original post, and cry into your pillow.
It’s just “some words.” Your original reply was juvenile. Your follow-up was childish. Grow up.
Thanks very much, n00bie, for pointing that out.
Also please point out where I said I dislike Limbaugh.
While you're working on that please refrain from making comments about things you know nothing about.
Amazing justification of your ignorance!
I applaud you.
You admit having no idea what you are talking about while still trying to sound superior.
Perhaps you should run for office.
Sanitary Services Manager or some such.
Spreadin’ the love again Brother Humble? :-D
I'm so sorry your effort was a waste...kind of like yourself.
May I mail you a tissue to weep into?
I keep tellin’ ‘em you’re just misunderstood.
The above is an intelligent and noteworthy statement. But, the mob smells blood and craves for someone to lynch.
Compare the posts made when they all thought Olive Garden had pulled with posts after Olive Garden denied this.
"Olive Garden is GREAT!", "I'm takin' the family, even the mother-in-law, to eat at Olive Garden tonight!", "This Saturday is our wedding anniversary. Nothing would say 'I love you' more than a night out at Olive Garden", "You want REAL Eye-tal-yun food? Try Olive Garden!"
- then O.G. denies pullings ads
"Olive Garden sucks!", "I wouldn't let my dog eat at Olive Garden!", "Only liberal commie pinkos eat at Olive Garden", "FIRE Olive Garden!"
You ain’t doing a very good job then. :-(
