Probably nothing, because he/she was more than likely very liberal.

What probably happened, just going by the "structure" and "tone" of the apologies, it came as a distinct shook the the massive Silent Majority growled back.

I can't remember when a late night host has had to so deeply acknowledge that what he did/said was totally out of line - and since I was born in the first half of the last century, I've seen a lot (starting with Edward R. Murrow).

Letterman's "attack dog" proclivities towards conservatives of any type found that there is always a bigger dog.

Makes you wonder what happened if anything to the writer and anyone else who approved of the joke before Letterman made it part of his monologue.

Sarcasm is definitely funny. Some people may not get it, but it's funny.

At this point in time, Mr. Letterman has provided the country with a full apology and has publicly stated that suggesting a child be raped was a stupid thing to do.

Regardless of how you fell about politics (all of it makes me sick - the Dems are just Repubs in fake fur and vice versa), Letterman went way beyond the attack dog he was during the election.

Putting shoes on the feet of others makes me wonder how good ole Dave would react if someone publicly suggested his child be raped.

He should at least have done his homework before he fired off the comment.

Hehe...I actually did meet Obama while he was on the campaign trail. I told him one of the most embarrassing things I had ever done politically is walk around neighborhood shouting Reagan slogans. He asked when that happened and I told him I only did it because all my friends were doing it...I was eight. We talked about some real issues to, but I remember all someone had to do was tell me Reagan was a Republican and I started to cry. This was maybe three days before he was elected to office and I'm not sure of my age, I was in the third grade.

I love Green Day's song Dominated Love slave:

I want to be your dominated love slave
I want to be the one that takes the pain
You can spank me when I do not behave
Smack me in the forehead with a chain

Cause I love feelin' dirty
And I love feelin' cheap
And I love it when you hurt me
So drive them staples deep

I want you to slap me and call me naughty
Put a beltsander against my skin
I want to feel pain all over my body
Can't wait to be punished for my sins.

Cause I love feelin' dirty
And I love feelin' cheap
And I love it when you hurt me
So drive them staples deep

Yee-hah!

Cause I love feelin' dirty
And I love feelin' cheap
And I love it when you hurt me
So drrrriiiveeee.....Staples?

AS long as we all remember to take everybody's comment with a dose of salt, and understand that not everyone believes that way that *I* do (even tho they all certainly should *giggle*)... Besides if we can't sarcastic about politics, ye gods does that mean we can't get sarcastic about sex next?! Oh the horrors.. the pain...

AHHHH Good ol' Ronnie Raygun... the man who began the deregulation of banks; the man who gave tax breaks to the rich and raised middle income taxes 3 times; the man who de-funded the infrastructure of the U.S.; the man who took money away from education and health services; the man who busted up unions.
I don't miss him at all and consider him one of the worst Presidents we ever had, but, that's just me.

Sorry, folks but i have to say it since this has political undertones. What is being said about the Palin family is how I feel about the current First Family. Don't like what I just said? Get over it. There I feel better and subsequently won't grab food from a runaway emotion.

Sarah and Todd Palin will do or say anything to stay in the news. Personally, I think we should all just ignore them and maybe they will go away. We can only hope.
