DUmmies defend Lecherman: "Freepers Want Letterman FIRED!"
"I mean, look at my record." Well, we are, Dave. And that's part of the problem. And your "apology" only made things worse. Yeah, make a joke about a 14-year-old girl getting raped, and then make excuses for it by saying it was only a joke and what's the matter with you people.
But, never fear, Dave, the DUmmies will defend you! And they'll attack the Freepers in the process! Witness this THREAD, "Freepers Want Letterman FIRED!"
Actually, the DUmmies are pretty much trying to ignore Lecherman's Stupid Host Trick. Instead, most of their threads right now are FOCUSED ENTIRELY on trying to tie the anti-Semite killer in D.C. to--get this, now--to Free Republic! Unbelievable!
But let us now see how the DUmmies try to defend Lecherman's rape joke, in A-Rod Red, while the commentary of your humble guest correspondent, Charles Henrickson, who would be SEEING red if someone made such a joke about my 13-year-old daughter, is in the [brackets]:
Freepers Want Letterman FIRED!
[DUmmies Have Wanted ________ (fill in the blank) Fired for Much Less!]
I know I shouldn't have. Yes, I know better but I wandered over to FR and there are about a dozen threads on Letterman.
[And now there's one documenting the DUmmies DEFENDING Lecherman!]
This is trivial.
[Rape is trivial.]
[Oh, nothing, really. Just a joke about a 14-year-old girl getting raped by a ballplayer. Trivial stuff.]
I'm guessing its the Palin joke.
[The WILLOW Palin joke. Willow, a 14-year-old girl.]
About Palin's daughter getting knocked up.
[About Palin's daughter getting raped.]
He made a joke about one of Palin's daughters being impregnated. . . .
[I.e., raped. But say "knocked up"--it doesn't sound so bad.]
Freepers are such pussies. If they don't like the joke they should ask Sarah Baracuda to velcro her daughters' legs together.
[Stay classy, DU!]
The problem is that the joke was about the 14 year old daughter, not Bristol. A joke about Bristol would be pretty much fair game if still a little tasteless.
[Raping an 18-year-old is fair game.]
Anything to take the focus away from the fact that two of their own members have committed murder in acts of domestic terrorism within the last 10 days.
[Neither one was a Freeper. Try again.]
Good wuck wiwf that you siwwy fweepews.
[It was just a siwwy wape joke!]
I want Freekers flayed!
[And their daughters raped!]
Letterman sliced and diced her tonight.
[And that was in his "apology"! Nice.]
Camp Palin apparently took the joke to be a crack against Palin's 14-year-old daughter Willow, who had recently attended a Yankees game, but Letterman insisted today that the real target was 18-year-old daughter Bristol.
[Bristol did not even make the trip to New York. Willow did. And Lecherman and staff, right there in New York, took an INTENSE interest in every aspect of Gov. Palin's visit, since it supplied them with most of their material the last few days.]
He was a douchebag for doing it either way. . . .
[LOUSY FREEPER TROLL!]
They're the ones who want to put a policeman in every bedroom and uterus.
[T M I !!!]
I would agree If he HAD Directed it at the 14 year old, PLEASE, GET YOUR FACTS STRAIGHT because you come off as an uninformed idiot. EVERYONE knows he directed it at Bristol. . . .
[So a joke about the OTHER teenage daughter getting raped would have been OK.]
Except the 18-year old wasn't at the game, and the 14-year old was.
[DON'T CONFUSE ME WITH THE FACTS!]
Is that confirmed that Willow was at the game? Or did Palin, shrewedly, decide to use the 14-yr. old as the target of the joke. . . . There seems to be confusion on whether Willow was at the game. Or if Palin "placed" her at the game in order to double-down on Letterman's stupid joke. Was Willow actually at the game?
Freepers have a hard time with comedy . . .
[. . . about 14-year-old girls getting raped.]
That joke was not comedy.
[THIS is comedy: "Did you hear David Lecherman's son went to the ballgame the other day and got molested by one of the players? Ha ha ha ha!" . . . What, you didn't like that one?! Hey, it was only a joke!]
he grosses millions in advertising dollars at CBS. . . .
[Emphasis on "gross."]
I'm really surprised at those of you who are dismissing or even laughing at Letterman's jokes about Palin's 14 year old daughter. Not only were they in poor taste but he was totally lacking in judgment. He most certainly should have apologized but the apology I saw this morning was both insincere and snide.
[Kewpie Doll, on the way! Brief moment of mental clarity.]
so ... Letterman makes a bad joke about one of her kids getting knocked up. . . .
["Did you hear Barack Obama's daughter went to the ballgame the other day and got raped by one of the players? Ha ha ha ha!" . . . What, you didn't like that one?! Hey, it was only a joke!]
