Letterman v. Palin continues

The Alaska Governor says comedian owes women an apology

On NBC’s “Today” show this morning, Sarah Palin said David Letterman owes the nation an apology for his joke last week about her 14 year old daughter, Willow, getting “knocked up” by Yankee’s third baseman Alex Rodriguez. She said she wanted him to apologize to young women across the country for making it “OK, accepted and funny to talk about statutory rape.” Letterman said his joke was supposed to be about her 18 year old daughter, Bristol, and that he would “never, ever make jokes about raping or having sex of any description with a 14-year-old girl.” Palin said Letterman thought of a “convenient excuse.”
