Is Sarah Palin’s 14-Year-Old Daughter Also Having Sex?

June 11, 2009

The comments by Sarah Palin seems to suggest she is.  If so, then the Palin home is truly a troubling place for children to live, and strongly suggests Palin might need to stay home a bit more and be a mother.

Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin (R) put out a scathing statement blasting David Letterman who jokedabout her visit to Yankee stadium and said Palin’s daughter got “knocked up” by Alex Rodriguez.

Said Palin: “Laughter incited by sexually-perverted comments made by a 62-year-old male celebrity aimed at a 14-year-old girl is not only disgusting, but it reminds us some Hollywood/NY entertainers have a long way to go in understanding what the rest of America understands — that acceptance of inappropriate sexual comments about an underage girl, who could be anyone’s daughter, contributes to the atrociously high rate of sexual exploitation of minors by older men who use and abuse others.”

It’s interesting that Palin’s statement assumes Letterman was referring to the governor’s 14-year-old and not her older unmarried daughter who recently gave birth to a son.

    I wonder why there was the huge uproar about what Imus said and not letterman’s comments. Perhaps it is because arfican american women are a protected class according to liberals whereas conservatives are not.

    Further, the title of your post is very suggestive since in the article you link to there is no discussion or hint from the mother that her young daughter is naything but chaste. Your title exploits with the suggestion of sex. Considering your journalistic background, I’ll assume that was deliberate. Darw in readers with insinuation. Nice.

    Well, the Obama girls–pictured as props so often during the campaign–are just about old enough for the smear mill. I’m glad you’ll be there to defend whatever conservative makes a joke of them.

    Thanks Jill,

    Typing way to fast……..

    But when I heard the joke I thought of Bristol.

    I never thought of the young kid until Sarah presented it as such.

    I do not have a problem with political jokes. Period.

    I expect the late night shows to poke fun at the political class.

    I laughed when Clinton was beat every night with jokes. I laugh at those about Obama, and did so with the latest Palin ones.

    I do not think we need to have anyone say if a joke is over the line or not. Folks at home can make that decision with the remote. To be honest I did not hear about the jokes until Palin let the press release fly. Had I been watching I would have laughed and not been insulted.

    As to the last point you raise I would agree IF the mother had chosen to keep her kids out the political climate. The Obama’s have done that through the campaign, and since taking over the White House

    Sarah Palin did not. Also know,and I think you do that the one being joked about, Bristol, is an adult. She is fair game. She goes on national TV for interviews and has now put herself out there.

    I think you meant “secede” from the Union. Personally, I think A-Rod should be deeply offended that Letterman accused him of being a sexual predator with a taste for 14-year-old girls.

    Your reasoning is absurd. Yes, politics is a tough business but don’t hide behind that as an excuse. Would it be fair game to make jokes about Michelle Obama’s sexual orientation or similar lurid comments? No, it would not. There is a huge, HUGE, difference bewteen what is fair game politically and that which is over the line.

    I am disappointed that you do not know the difference.

    Still, you failed to answer my question: does the joke being about Bristol make it funny or appropriate? This was not a political commentary or analysis of Palin’s political abilities on CNN, this was a joke on the Late Show.

    Palin has indeed put her family’s story as part of her political identity. I will not dispute that and we can debate whether that is a good thing or a bad thing. However, it is not okay to insuate that her daughter is a slut or a whore because she had a child out of wedlock. People make mistakes. It’s not as though Bristol didn’t know who the father was or was strung out on drugs. Assailing a young woman’s character when she is going to have enough problems raising the child and trying to go to college is flat wrong.

    Attack Palin’s policies and politics. Leave her children out of it.

    Attacking a 14 year old girl like that on national TV is just another example of the double standard of the liberals in our country. If Letterman made the same comment regarding one of Obamas girls, not only would he never work again; but the government would probably take over that TV network.

    To answer you last question, I think once Palin put her whole family ‘out there’ for political purposes, her son the warrior in Iraq, her troubled daughter who was pregnant, her husband who had worked with a group to succeed from the Union, then I think Sarah made them all fair game. Politics is a tough business. That is not news. Sarah however decided her goals were/are more important than that of her family.

    And NO ONE..execpt Sarah Palin to make a political point by USING her family again….thought Letterman was talking about anyone except for Bristol Palin. No one.

    Sarah Palin uses her family, and then some get all excited because she gets what she wants.

    Sarah can not have it both ways.

    She does not here on my blog.

    The *joke* was made in reference to the daughter who accompanied Palin to the Yankees game. That daughter was 14-year old Willow Palin. 18-year old Bristol was apparently still in Alaska. Unless Letterman assumed that A-Rod flew to Juneau during the 7th inning stretch, I think Gov. Palin is correct in assuming the joke was made at Willow’s expense.

    Besides, even if the joke were aimed at Bristol, does it really make it suddenly OK, or in good taste? That’s disgusting and I doubt you would at all think this is funny or appropriate if the joke had been made about Chelsea Clinton or one of Obama’s daughters.

    Is nothing off-limits in politics anymore?

    A home failure cannot be a national success. The main difference between liberals and conservatives for personal life is conservatives play hypocrisy.
