Last word on Letterman

I'm not sure why David Letterman felt the need to apologize Monday night (again) for his jokes last week about Sarah Palin and her daughters - can you imagine comedians apologizing every time they offend a public figure? - but he said what he felt had to say (or, perhaps, what CBS told him to say), Palin accepted the apology (though in her typical snarky manner), and that's that.

Now can cable TV news, especially Fox, please moved on to more pressing matters?

Let's hope this is the end of the David Letterman - Sarah Palin feud. While last week Letterman apologized, it was in a snarky sort of way, and wasn't accepted by Palin...

I wouldn't exactly say "Palin accepted the apology." She used the opportunity to go off on entirely unrelated tangents, which (of course) hit the proper talking points for the base:

"Of course it's accepted on behalf of young women, like my daughters, who hope men who 'joke' about public displays of sexual exploitation of girls will soon evolve. Letterman certainly has the right to 'joke' about whatever he wants to, and thankfully we have the right to express our reaction. And this is all thanks to our U.S. military women and men putting their lives on the line for us to secure America's right to free speech -- in this case, may that right be used to promote equality and respect."

The hypocrisy continues....
