5. David Letterman
The Late Show with David Letterman has been using Sarah Palin as comedic fodder ever since she first hit the national stage. Letterman has used his stand up monologues to crack jokes about the former governor. In September 2008, for instance, he created a rather lame, but insulting “Top Ten Facts about Sarah Palin“-list.
Letterman makes the Top 10 Palin Haters list because in June of 2009 he decided to add Palin’s daughter(s) to his anti-Palin routine.
“One awkward moment for Sarah Palin at the Yankee game,” Letterman said, “during the seventh inning, her daughter was knocked up by Alex Rodriguez.”
Palin responded vehemently in public, defending her cub as a momma bear would. A few days later Letterman apologized and claimed his joke was not in reference to her 14 year old daughter that was with her at the Yankees game. Instead, he said, he was referring to her oldest 18 year old pregnant daughter. Right.
In Letterman’s mind, sexual comments from a 62 year old man aimed at an 18 year old politician’s daughter is much less offensive and hateful than against a 14 year old. It goes to show just how sick Letterman is – at least when it comes to the Palins.
