"Letterman And Statutory Rape: It’s All In Good (Liberal) Fun." What about the redneck who ‘raped’ Bristol Palin?

Conservative outrage over Letterman’s jokes…

I mean, that’s a fair fight, right? A sixty-some year old celebrity millionaire vs. a teenage girl just starting high school? And who doesn’t appreciate a good statutory rape joke every now and then?

Thanks to Labor Law Talk Blog:
Alaska Statutory Rape Laws

…In addition, Alaska statutory rape laws declare that anyone who is 18 years old or older who has sex with a person who is 16 or 17, or who is at least three years younger than the offender, can be charged with sexual abuse in the third degree. This is also a felony.

Alaska statutory rape laws carry punishments that include imprisonment and fines.

Let’s see: Bristol Palin, born October 18, 1990. Self-professed ‘fuckin’ redneck‘ Levi Johnston, born…in 1990 sometime.

They started dating in August of 2007 and continued until the beginning of 2009. At the end of August and beginning of September of 2008, when the new Republican VP nominee’s daughter admitted she was pregnant, Levi was…18…and Bristol was…17?


Run away!

    I actually could have sympathy for Palin’s feelings about her daughter if she weren’t so obviously milking it for all the publicity it can generate. I do think jokes about politician’s kids should be out of bounds at least until they reach the Liz Cheney stage. How can you blame Bristol for being fucked up anyway? She was raised by a psycho Nazi.

    Just an aside — but does Levi remind anyone else of Cletis from Idiocracy?

    I’m pretty sure Letterman’s writers screwed up, SAm. But we can both rest assured that the 45 second comedy bit will live on for months in the Palin camp as a cultural Auschwitz. It will be reason #7 that the Alaska Governor should be elected President because she will restore dignity to America. Right?
