Palin was right about Letterman

Admit it: Sarah Palin seems pretty prescient when it comes to David Letterman's creepy talk about sex.

Palin excoriated Letterman last June after Letterman joked that one of Palin's daughters had been "knocked up" by New York Yankee player Alex Rodriguez.

She was prescient on that score. But I gave up Letterman long ago for the way he treats his guests.

Lettermann has always been a really creepy pervert. The truth is just now coming out. Notice that the NAGS and women's group are silent on this Democrapper slime bag.

That kid is the only reason she got married. How many Littlmen were aborted?

Hollywood used to have their own abortion clinics on lot during the 30s-50s to take care of their starlets.

According to unamed sources, Letterman did father the child. His wife, however, isn't the mother - that honor belongs to his sister, Gretchen.

What we have here w/Letterman is another display of a liberal running off his mouth because he thinks the current socio/political environment lets him. Now we know what this pervert really thinks inside his brain and it’s ugly.

Isn’t a case of the boss having sex with subordinates considered sexual harrassment because the boss has the power to fire the subordinate if she (or he) doesn’t comply with his demands? Isn’t this a classic case of sexual harrassment? jes axin’

From NewsBusters.org, June 9, 2009...

Seven months after Election Day, and the attacks on Sarah Palin keep coming.

On Monday, CBS's David Letterman on the "Late Show" shamelessly went after the Alaska governor and her family during his opening monologue, as well as in his "Top Ten" list.

Top Ten Highlights Of Sarah Palin's Trip To New York

10. Visited New York landmarks she normally only sees from Alaska

9. Laughed at all the crazy-looking foreigners entering the U.N.

8. Made moose jerky on Rachael Ray

7. Keyed Tina Fey's car

6. After a wink and a nod, ended up with a kilo of crack

5. Made coat out of New York City rat pelts

4. Sat in for Kelly Ripa. Regis couldn't tell the difference.

3. Finally met one of those Jewish people Mel Gibson's always talking about

2. Bought makeup from Bloomingdale's to update her "slutty flight attendant" look

1. Especially enjoyed not appearing on Letterman

There was a pre nup. Would love to see it.Bet she knows all about this stuff...Let's see...wife cannot be forced to testify

Now, that's a good reason to marry.

My gut tells me mhe knew this was going to come out....just not as a blackmail case.

Letterman was pretty phoney about the "endanger my family" etc. He's feeding the world a plate of cr**.

Any respectable business would fire any male in authority who used his position to extract sexual favors from subordinates. In a heartbeat.

Of course, here we have CBS, the proud former home of Dan Blather and his failed jihad to embarrass Bush with forged docuents showing he received preferential treatment from the military in his duty assignment.

Probably best not to expect any significant punitive action out of the Clinton Broadcasting System (CBS).

Dave probably already obtained assurances his job is safe. Hell, CBS will probably pay all of his legal bills.

His audience are mostly brain-dead lefties, who laugh on que to repulsive jokes because they want to look “cool” to the other brain-dead idiots they came in with. None of these people really have a true sense of humor. If they did, they would refuse to laugh at such a pathetic buffoon as Littleman.

"CBS won’t fire him."

Letterman is a sicko, who's clearly suffering from many personality disorders. But, he's also a shrewd business man.

He learned his lesson when he lost the Tonight Show to Leno and had to leave NBC. Letterman, unlike Leno, owns the Late Show, not CBS. Letterman (through his production company) owns the name, he owns the material, and he owns the archived shows themselves. And, he owns the Late, Late Show as well.

Even if CBS wanted to can him - and I'm absolutely sure they don't - they probably can't, just from a practical perspective.

Well in America, anybody can sue anyone for anything. There should be a class action suit by his viewers for personal damages.

I would sign on as an "alleged" viewer. Now that he has sullied his own image, I have trouble sleeping, blurred vision, loss of consortium, poor self esteem, etc.

Why there must be millions of us.

There are a couple of other reasons CBS won’t can him. First of all, with Conan O’Brien and The Tonight Show struggling, Letterman is winning the late night ratings wars for the first time in more than a decade. What’s the difference between #2 and #1? Millions of dollars a year.

Secondly, CBS abandoned any pretense at corporate scruples a long time ago. If not for Buckhead and the gang at Powerline, Dan Rather’s journalistic fraud would never have been exposed.

Besides, CBS is run by a guy named Les Moonves, who dumped his wife (and kids) a few years ago to shack up with Julie Chen, the newsreader on The Early Show and the host of “Big Brother.” I don’t recall Mr. Moonves or Ms. Chen being disciplined for their conduct. It’s a fair bet that Moonves won’t call Letterman on the carpet for his indiscretions.

Still, Letterman will pay dearly for his actions. The would-be extortionists (who deserve to go to jail) will subpoena all of Dave’s consorts, and the tabloids will have a field day. No wonder Letterman could never catch Leno in the ratings. He was too busy running a casting couch above the Ed Sullivan Theater.

The one person I truly feel sorry for is Letterman’s six-year-old son. He’s just at the age where he realizes that Dad is famous and his life is far different than that of his peers. Letterman’s son is about to discover that his dad is a philanderer, lout and a lot more. If he’s lucky, his mom will file for divorce, grab a nice chunk of Dave’s change and get him the hell away from Letterman.

One more thought: Letterman has always been something of a cad in his treatment of women. He persuaded his first wife to go with him to Hollywood and she supported him while he tried to launch a career as a stand-up comic.

When his career took off, Letterman dumped his wife for Merrill Markoe, a successful TV writer. Markoe helped Letterman land a slot as a performer on Mary Tyler Moore’s ill-fated CBS variety show. That, in turn, got Letterman gigs on the Tonight Show, his own daytime program, and eventually, “Late Night.” Markoe was the head writer—and the primary creative force—behind Letterman’s early shows.

By the mid-80s, Letterman had tired of Markoe. With his clout as star and producer of Late Night, he pushed her off the program, and began a new romance with Regine Lasko, the girlfriend who eventually bore his son. For her troubles, Ms. Lasko got a luxurious lifestyle, her child, and (apparently) Dave’s serial philandering.

What’s left of Letterman’s reputation will be thoroughly trashed in the upcoming trial. That’s why he confessed to the affairs on air last night, trying to depict himself as the victim in all of this. No one should feel any sympathy for Dave; it’s a mess of his own making.

He’s been in a long term relationship with the woman who is his wife, and mother of his 6 year old child, since 1986.

He wasn’t really “single”, unless this only happened earlier than 86, which I doubt.

Oh, yes. Anyone who worked there over the years could sue for millions. They would not have to have been involved. His employer could be in a world of hurt.

Hell is full of people who made the microphone their god behind a camera on stage, the movie set, the TV studio, or even congress. Being well known or famous or accepted by the mob does not make you a moral person, a defender of truth, or innocent or exempt for things you say and do in life. The microphone records your voice and the camera your image, but God records the state of your soul. Your soul is eternal, but even magnetic tape, celluloid film, CD’s and DVD’s deteriorate over time. Even radio waves in space over light years eventually will fade or collide with the universe and become no more. But God records everything we do in the Book of Life and what matters most is how we love and treat each other.

very interesting background, especially about the 1st wife he discarded. I wonder if she’s still around.

I have to think there were quite a few of these young interns that Dave took advantage. It should be interesting when the truth comes out, as it undoubtedly will.

I suspect Dave probably paid all these women very handsomely to stay quiet, and there is already a report about how he paid for one of them to go to law school. So he’s pretty much a John here and paying for sex.

It was a pretty nice scheme he had cooked up. Sleep with me and I’ll set you up nicely, take care of anything you want, and help you out in your career.

Dave is very fortunate that this broke this week instead of last week when he had Obama and Clinton on. If it had broke before that, I doubt either of them go on, although it would have been worth it to see him and Clinton discuss it.

What a disgusting pig of a man.
