The Late Show is guilty of little more than a fleeting case of bad taste in its flap with Sarah Palin, host David Letterman said Wednesday night. Palin twice criticized Letterman this week over a top 10 list in which he joked about Palin’s daughter being “knocked up by Alex Rodriguez” and hit on by Eliot Spitzer. Seeming to willfully ignore that the jokes were clearly in reference to her oldest daughter Bristol, 18, Palin blasted Letterman in a statement over the “sexually perverted comments made by a 62-year-old male celebrity aimed at a 14-year-old girl” and even accused him of encouraging sexual violence against minors. “These are not jokes made about her 14-year-old daughter. I would never, never make jokes about raping or having sex of any description with a 14-year-old girl,” Letterman said in a lengthy segment addressing the criticism yesterday. “Am I guilty of poor taste? Yes. Did I suggest that it was O.K. for her 14-year-old daughter to be having promiscuous sex? No.”

Bristol Palin, the 18-year-old daughter of Sarah Palin whose pregnancy during the presidential campaign made headlines, taped an interview for Greta Van Susteren’s “On The Record” on Monday night.
Both Bristol, appearing with her 2-month old baby Tripp for the first time, and her mother expressed skepticism about abstinence-only programs which her mother backed when running for governor in 2006.
When Van Susteren mentions abstinence in discussing Bristol’s surprise pregnancy, Sarah Palin responded: “It sounds naive. Life happens.”
Bristol also said that “everyone should be abstinent but it’s not realistic… [sex] is more and more accepted among kids my age.”
Bristol also warned about the dangers of teen pregnancy and said that she should have waited 10 years before having children.
“Of course I wish it would happen in like 10 years so I could have a job and education and my own house… But he brings so much joy. i don’t regret it at all.”
At the end of the interview, Sarah Palin gave a passionate speech against the fairness doctrine, which has been painted by conservatives as a prerogative of Democrats. She lauded a few members of the media whom she admires for asking tough questions – and all of whom happen to work for Fox News: Van Susteren, Bill O’Reilly, Sean Hannity, Glen Beck.
“Any attempt to squash these voices… that’s a threat to our democracy.”
The news was buried in an AP story yesterday. Levi Johnston, Bristol Palin’s fiancé and soon-to-be baby daddy has dropped out of high school. He informed a reporter in what sounded like a casual interview that took place on his driveway. The news is surprising only insomuch as how closely it follows the national statistics on teen sex and pregnancy. Levi now falls into his predestined spot alongside all other teens dropping out of high school to prematurely become adults because of unplanned parenthood.

The National Enquirer is continuing its foray into politicians’ personal lives this election season. Less than two months after the magazine’s investigation forced John Edwards to admit an extramarital affair with Rielle Hunter, the Enquirer has identified what it calls “Sarah Palin’s Other Man” — Todd Palin’s former business partner, Brad Hanson.
According to the Enquirer, the identity of Palin’s extramarital lover was confirmed by “no less than three members of the man’s family including one by sworn affidavit.”
One Hanson family insider, Jim Burdett, passed a “rigorous polygraph test,” and went on the record telling the Enquirer, “I’ve known about Brad having had an affair for a long time, but it wasn’t until just recently that I learned his affair was with Sarah Palin.”
Another insider, who preferred to remain anonymous but provided the Enquirer with a sworn affidavit attesting to the affair, said, “Todd was away on business a lot and Sarah felt lonely. Brad was a good listener, and Sarah talked to him at length. Eventually, she realized she was falling in love with him.”
The Enquirer has also taken credit for the announcement that Bristol Palin is pregnant, claiming that it was “triggered” by the fact that the magazine was about to break the news.

Bill O’Reilly writes “On the pinhead front, 16-year-old Jamie Lynn Spears is pregnant. The sister of Britney says she is shocked. I bet.
Now most teens are pinheads in some ways. But here the blame falls primarily on the parents of the girl, who obviously have little control over her or even over Britney Spears. Look at the way she behaves…”
Hmmmmmm, wonder what Billy boy has to say about Sarah Palin’s parenting skills concerning her daughter Bristol. Pinhead, much?
