UPDATE below the fold.

Contessa Brewer interviews John Ziegler regarding David Letterman’s tasteless comments about Sarah Palin and daughter, Willow.

For background on the kerfuffle, see Curt’s post here.

When the interview got too hot to handle, Brewer orders Ziegler’s mic cut.

Roll the tape:

Letterman doubled down last night.

Exit question:

Who, on the left, has decried this hateful misogyny toward Sarah Palin and her minor daughter?

Anyone?

Anyone?

Didn’t think so.

UPDATE:

Apparently Letterman is feeling some heat about his back to back comments regarding Sarah Palin and her minor daughter.

According to Entertainment Weekly (EW.com) Letterman tried to back pedal and gloss over his disgusting comments during tonights’ taping of his show.

“We were, as we often do, making jokes about people in the news and we made some jokes about Sarah Palin and her daughter [Bristol]… and now they’re upset with me…” Letterman says on tonight’s show. “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…. Am I guilty of poor taste? Yes. Did I suggest that it was okay for her 14-year-old daughter to be having promiscuous sex? No.” Saying he hopes he’s “cleared part of this up,” Letterman extended an invitation to Palin to come on the show as a guest.

Sorry Dave. Not buying it.

Too little. Too late.

By the way, still no outrage from the left.
