Leonard Pitts Jr. column about David Letterman

Columnist skews facts in crusade against conservatives

Once again, Leonard Pitts Jr. [“Pity the oppressed conservatives,” Opinion, syndicated column, June 18] tries to lead us down the wrong path by changing the facts. He can have his opinion, but not his own facts.

In regard to the David Letterman and Sarah Palin issue [“Palin-Letterman still at odds over comedian’s joke,” seattletimes.com, Entertainment, June 12], the two points of contention — by conservatives, as liberals will never stand up for a conservative woman for anything — were that Letterman’s comment had to reference Palin’s 14-year-old daughter as she was the one who went to the ballgame.

Second, Letterman said it was OK to talk about teen sex with a much older man if he meant her 18-year-old daughter.

What he said was wrong no matter what age Palin’s daughters are. The issue had nothing to do with conservatism but had to do with correct social mores, of which neither Letterman nor Pitts has any concept.
