I just thought this was the funniest thing ever. Letterman making a funny about Governor Palin's 14 year-old daughter having sex with a New York Yankee.
Seriously, can you imagine anyone making a joke about any other politician's daughter being "knocked up", aka raped, during a baseball game at Yankee Stadium? Our president and vice-president both have daughters. Will Lettermen make similar jokes about them? Whether he does or not, Letterman is a disgusting man.

I read his "apology", which amounted to saying he was sorry, saying it was wrong, but not ringing all that genuine.

Then again Sarah Palin will fade away by 2012....
One of the substantive points that Brewer brings up is the fact that a new Gallup poll indicates that Palin doesn't rate among self-identified Republicans as any sort of party leader. Ziegler blamed MSNBC for that: "You find this surprising or shocking that because you and the media portray Republicans as old white men, that the public perceives Republicans as old white men?" Yes. The perception that the GOP was filled with old, white men was invented by the media, in 2009, to hurt Sarah Palin's electoral chances. Truly, a cunning bit of subterfuge.
I tend to think that public favor of Palin has diminished because every time someone says something about her that should simply be beneath her, like a late night host's Top Ten List, Palin turns it into a national opera of personal outrage. She doesn't seem to understand that she'd be better off ignoring it. Sometimes, you just have to act like the small stuff doesn't affect you. And, hey, maybe you should avoid having a guy who's trying to earn a living selling you as a documentary film subject as your chief spokesman in the press. But if Ziegler is going to step up and fight those battles for you, there's even less of a reason to become personally invested. Sarah Palin should let the small people sweat the small stuff, instead of constantly retreating behind them.
