Leno Told The Same Joke As Letterman

Posted by | June 13, 2009 14:07 | Filed under: Top Stories

On September 2, during the presidential campaing, Jay Leno told this joke:

“Gov. Palin announced over the weekend that her 17-year-old unmarried daughter is five months pregnant. And you thought John Edwards was in trouble before! Now he has really done it.” — “The Tonight Show With Jay Leno.”

This is not much different than the Letterman joke about which the right wing is going crazy:


“One awkward moment for Sarah Palin at the Yankee game,” Letterman said, “during the seventh inning, her daughter was knocked up by Alex Rodriguez.”

So, why did Jay Leno’s joke go by largely unnoticed, while Sarah Palin is doing a national publicity tour denouncing David Letterman?
