Fire David Letterman

First, the background
(prior to the second so-called “apology”):

Remember, 18 year old Bristol Palin
did NOT attend the game!

Regarding the second -- still grossly inadequate -- “apology”,
quoting Brent Bozell at NewsBusters.org:
“Letterman's ‘apology' is slippery and Clintonian. He talked about the ‘perception' of his joke three times in his statement. He then goes on to say twice that he was ‘misunderstood.'

There's no perception, no misunderstanding. The public understood exactly what he said - joking about statutory rape - and was outraged. It was David Letterman who misunderstood who was in the audience, as if making a degrading joke about an 18-year-old girl is much more acceptable than taking the cheap shot at her 14-year-old sister.

It's noteworthy that Mr. Letterman didn't take the opportunity to apologize for describing Governor Palin as looking like a ‘slutty flight attendant.' That kind of insult apparently continues to be acceptable in his world.”

If -- even on the second attempt -- this creep had offered a sincere apology wherein he actually took responsibility for his so-called “joke” about raping a 14 year old child, I might have been inclined to let it go. But, it is now crystal clear that Letterman sees himself as a “misunderstood” victim -- a victim who only fully understood his victimhood when not even PBS would defend his indefensible “joke”.

If any regular guy in any regular workplace made a comment like that, he would have been fired immediately. And -- for joking about raping a 14 year old child -- it would have been entirely justified.

This pervert needs to go -- NOW!
