David Letterman jokes about Sarah Palin

So, Sarah Palin and her daughter visit Yankee Stadium, and David Letterman makes a joke about said daughter being knocked up by Alex Rodriguez. Pretty much your standard unwed-mother-Bristol-Palin joke. Only it turns out that it wasn't Bristol who visited Yankee Stadium; it was her fourteen-year-old sister Willow.

So was Letterman making a joke about A-Rod banging a fourteen-year-old girl? Or did he just assume that it was Bristol who was making the visit? Being sane, you and I can be pretty certain it was the latter, but right-wing blogger Jim Treacher has decided it must have been the former, and boy is he steamed! Roy Edroso of Alicublog mocks Treacher, and Treacher cannot resist jumping into Edroso's comments section. He also can't resist jumping into John Cole's comments section when he blogs about the offending jokes.

Well, if that's all it takes to get some guy I never heard of to increase my traffic, count me in! Jim Treacher, your mother was a hamster and your father smelled of elderberries! And David Letterman is the funniest guy on television, especially when he's badmouthing Sarah Palin.

What are you gonna do about it?

P.S. Your fish and chips suck too.

UPDATE: Qapla'! Multiple comments, including one from Treacher himself. The Johnny Pez blog has hit the big time, bay-beee!

UPDATE 2: Well, well, well. It turns out that Willow Palin wasn't at the game. None of the Palinettes were at the game. It was just Caribou Barbie, the First Dude, Rudy Gi911ani, and the third Mrs. Gi911ani. The whole "controversy" was ginned up out of nothing by the wingnuts. What a surprise.

So why did Letterman make a joke about A-Rod knocking up Bristol? BECAUSE IT WAS FUNNY! Because he couldn't pass up the opportunity to mock A-Rod AND Bristol, two of his favorite targets, at the same time.

Even if he assumed it was Bristol at the ballpark, did he imagine she'd left the baby with its d-bag of a bio-dad a few thousand miles away? Or maybe she brought the baby to the ballpark and left it with her mother in the stands, then sought out ARod among tens of thousands in the same stadium for a quickie? Because any teenager who has sex with her long-time boyfriend is always lookin' to get banged by a stranger.

Funny jokes rely on plausible premises. This wasn't a funny joke, it was a pointless, mean, and ultimately stupid insult.

Sarah Palin takes her 14 year old daughter to a baseball game.

Letterman jokes about Palin's daughter being a total slut with a ballplayer.

Left wing Palin haters think it insane that people would conclude he was talking about the 14 year old instead of the 18 year old, who wasn't at the ballpark.

I mean, wow....

You know damn well David thought it was Piper, or he wouldn't have made that joke.

Why isn't A-Rod jumping up and into this fray?

Where's his honor?

I'm still a Letterman fan, myself.

Yeah, funny thing about that, Nomi. Rodriguez doesn't seem to think that Letterman was accusing him of statutory rape.

Of course, after being swept by the Red Sox in a 3 game series, I dare say A-Rod has more important things to worry about.

Dear Johnny Pez,

Please capitalize (capitolize?) the "T" in "Third" Mrs. Gi911iani or use Roman Numerals ( III) after the name.

Thank you.
