David Letterman's Embarrassing Downward Spiral

When I was a teenager and in my early twenties, I was THE biggest fan of David Letterman. But in the past few years he has continuously embarrassed & debased himself. The latest episode involves him saying that Sarah Palin has the look of a "slutty flight attendant". Then he went on to refer to Palin's 14 year old daughter, Willow, being knocked up by NY Yankees player, Alex Rodriguez. Just imagine if someone with a conservative bent made similar jokes about a female Democrat politician like Debbie Wasserman Schultz or Jennifer Granholm. This would be a front page scandal in the New York Times. The double standard is so blatant.

What kind of MAN makes sex jokes about a 14 year old girl?!? And then when confronted with the error of his ways, he refuses to sincerely apologize.

May I suggest that he should donate $1 Million to a charity that focuses on helping young girls who have been sexually abused. It would be a start to show some actual compassion.

Update: Victor Davis Hanson shares some poignant thoughts.
