He/she is probably referencing certain of Todd's blowhard comments about the incident.

As mentioned many times, Palin's asking for it. Inexperience, lack of basic knowledge facts and double standarts for morality AND law made her the laughing stock of last elections. So the joke was inapropriate. Get over it, comedians and commentators do it all the time. I doubt she'll be able to change much before 2012 and the show will be on again...

Or she'll get more worse before then. Once an idiot, always an idiot!

I've watched this go back and forth and it's obvious that most won't agree on this.
Depending on one's politics you will see it in your own way.

When Palin stepped into the political arena both on the state and national levels she made the decision to have her family at every event and center stage.
But I feel once you invite the press in you can't get them out.
Most politicians families are only known to the public on election day for the photo op or when they are arrested and it's noted whose child they are.

Letterman took his top 10 list shot at a political figure Palin and her family.
Remember this is a family who gives interviews and had become almost a reality series
on their own.
His comment wasn't in good taste "during the seventh inning, her daughter was knocked up by Alex Rodriguez".
Letterman didn't say which daughter and I for one on hearing this assumed it was a reference to the 18 year old who is on every magazine cover discussing her pregnancy and child.
He also took the shot at A-Rod who is notorious for his jumping from woman to woman tendency.

The rape comment was made by Todd Palin in his referring to Lettermans remarks.
Until Todd and Sarah spoke on this no one knew that the 14 year old was on this trip.
FYI I didn't see this kid in the NY Post or Daily News, only Sarah and Todd.
(also didn't see Sarahs sister and her son who apparently were there also).

oh fyi....if Letterman actually knew which daughter was at the game he would have know that
Palin and crew left after the 6th inning...didn't even make it to the stretch.

Personally, I am sick and tired of the governor calling foul every time someone breathes in the wrong octave concerning her little angels. It is as if she courts that sort of thing just to use it to fire up her "base".

I have no idea, but if I had to guess, it was Willow. Otherwise there wouldn't have been references to a 14 year old all over the place.

Not really, he said he "Maybe he regretted it"... That wasn't the same as apologizing with your hat in your hand. He made fun of his having to even address it. Nope, not a bit of sincerity there at all....

Don't really matter, don't plan on watching his show anyway. Most of his comedy has gone down hill for the last bunch of years.

Had someone said that about Obama's daughter's, I would think they were just as much scum as Letterman is... Even though I don't care for Obama and his policies, his kids shouldn't have to be subjected to such ridicule either. That doesn't seem to be a common thread for those on the left side of the Isle....

I hate to defend him, but when he was on tonight on e-entertainment which I don't watch, but he tried to repent and they showed pics of Bristol...as obnoxious as he is...I don't think he would refer to Willow...
