#1 So it's okay to joke about raping an 18 year old teen but not a 14 year old teen. Got it, Dave.

Separate issue: Mr. Alex Rodriguez apparently is known as a philanderer. Mr. Rodriquez meets the federal definition of 'Hispanic' as he was born in the Dominican Republic.

So now Dave is joking about a Hispanic man raping a teen-aged girl.

Wonder how Mr. Rodriquez feels about being the tool in Dave's joke?

#2 I haven't watched Letterman since summer of 1984 when I encountered him in Rockefeller Center. I was aparantly in his way, although he could have easily walked past, and he was extremely rude. Dickweed.

#3 the only joke is that CBS is still letting this unfunny hack host a show. He should be "Dan Rathered"

#4 So according to David Letterman - Its ok to make jokes about someone being raped.

Kind of shows you what kind of person he is doesn't it?

Actually Letterman hasn't been funny for at least 10 years - not even his 10 lists are juvenile.

#5 I thought A-Rod liked 'em older, anyway.

It's good, I guess that the Palins won't contribute to Dave's ratings, but as Jim Treacher said: it would have been great to see Todd contribute to "Will it heal?"

#6 this was way tacky, I expected better of him. He had some Marines I served w/on his show many moons ago - he treated them good. I rarely ever watch letterman, just don't find him that funny and never really have. Now Denis Leary and Dennis Miller crack me up.

#7 Well, dave is an emotional retard. Wait that's not fair to retarded people. They are far better then he is.

No Dave is duller than a pet rock...

No that's not fair to the pet rock...

Dave makes road kill look inviting...
That's not considerate of road kill...

I know - Dave's mind and the bathroom in the bar in Desperado have like organization and coherency...

#8 He's just a sad, washed up dude. And he still looks like he has hamsters on his head.

#10 Yes but they couldn't resist a little jab at conservatives:

On that point, it's important to note that when Chelsea Clinton was 13 years old she was the target of numerous insults based on her appearance. Rush Limbaugh even referred to her as the "White House dog." NOW hopes that all the conservatives who are fired up about sexism in the media lately will join us in calling out sexism when it is directed at women who aren't professed conservatives.

I never heard of any insults directed at Miss Clinton and somehow I don't think Rush said that.

#11 One Washington paper featured a less than flattering editorial cartoon of Ms Clinton shortly after arriving at the White House. Newt Gingrich sent a loud message out that it was unacceptable and we weren't entertained by a repeat. I'm sure NOW will provide a transcript citation of their claim about Rush and not some urban legend they want to repeat thinking that will give it credibility.
