Grow a sense of humor and get over yourself.

Beg to differ dude. Implying that a 14 yr old was knocked up in the 7th inning by A-Rod IS insulting. Juxtapose it on the Obama girls and see how far it would fly. It is tasteless and not very humorous.

Absolutely agreed even though he thought he was refering to the 17yr old.

Like it or not the remark would not have been made about the Obama girls because the Obama family/girls don't have that kind of image.

George Carlin once said, "I think it's the duty of the comedian to find out where the line is drawn and cross it deliberately." He was my favorite comic, yet he crossed the line in a nasty way at times, to my distaste. The same happened with Mr. Letterman who had second thoughts and properly apologized. This need not be a cause celebre.

Get a grip on reality.

It was a JOKE that was probably written in a conference room by someone who saw a headline about Palin and her daughter going to a yankee game.

The older daughter- which the joke was aimed at- was born in 1990.

Turning it into something anything more than that is ridiculous and shows how ridiculous we are.

The joke wouldn't be about the Obama girls, because there's no history of them mothering children in their teens out of wedlock.

Willow was at the game, not Bristol, so it makes the defense of "I was referring to Bristol" a bit lame since the joke never said a name. The sexulaization of children, especially girls, in modern society is very disturbing though. The Australia Institute's report "Corporate Pedophilia"

Only a moron or Rethuglican would think Letterman was referring to the 14 yr old.

That's the thing, Marc.

Sure, the younger kid was at the game. But I can guarantee the writer's didn't realize that.

And if they had, they wouldn't have written that.

That's where the lack of common sense and absurdity is coming into this.

To make this an argument about sexualization of kids...COME ON!
