The biggest joke about this whole thing is that it's still making news.

I thought she didn't believe in evolution. Maybe politicians who shamelessly use their kids to get publicity will soon evolve too.

Letterman is a political hack masquerading as a comedian at the end of a career that went south years ago. The heir apparent to Johnny Carson will forever be remembered as the creepy dude who told a joke involving statutory rape of Sarah Palin's 14 year old daughter.

He had no choice but to apologize for being the ignorant fool so many liberals end up becoming after so many years of prescribing to liberal think.

So many libs want this to disappear because they know it exposes the mediasdouble standard of attacking Republicans and their families while leaving Democrats and theirs alone. Good on the Palins for forcing Letterman into an apology.

Use their kids? She is pro-family. As much as it disgusts "progressives" she will communicate with not just words but actions on that point.

As for her views on evolution - she is the daughter of a science teacher who, by all reports I read, was quite a good teacher.

“This is all thanks to our U.S. military men and women putting their lives on the line for us to secure America’s right to free speech,” she said.

Token shout out the military boyz!!! She loves reeling off this line.

I'm personally hoping they'll be intelligently re-designed.

"The Alaska governor, in a statement issued Tuesday, said the apology was accepted “on behalf of all young women, like my daughters, who hope men who `joke’ about public displays of sexual exploitation of girls will soon evolve.”"

Why didn't she just say, "I hope Jesus changes them."

Altria: "I'm personally hoping they'll be intelligently re-designed."

Good one. You can't imply people like Letterman are still apes if you don't believe in 'evolution'.

I'm lovin it!

Palin's response to all of this was quite impressive - Letterman unwittingly gave her a chance to score big time with women on both sides of the political spectrum and she did just that.

Good work, Dave.

A number of us here have pointed out that Palin would be largely out of the news if it weren't for her enemies' inability to leave her alone.

"Comedian" Bill Maher has picked up where Letterman left off. Commenting on Letterman's apology, his offer to have Palin and her daughter on the show, and their refusal to go on Maher was unable to restrain himself and "joked"

"...that’s right, he’s 62 years old, he’s gonna f*** her right there on stage…it would be very wise to keep her, very wise, yes. You know, I’d worry a little more about the 18-year old hockey players who knock up your daughters."

Amazing. Again, you would never know that their party controls the WH, Congress and Senate and that Palin is governor of a state which is a good six- or seven-hour flight away from the lib media nexus of NY-DC.

Where does all the hate and vitriol come from?How can these people insist in the same breath that they are all about tolerance and being "non-judgemental"?

Bizarre.

I was particularly amused when NOW jumped into the fray as well.

I'd pay to watch that!

Palin said Tuesday that Letterman has the right to joke about whatever he wants to, and “thankfully we have the right to express our reaction.”

“This is all thanks to our U.S. military men and women putting their lives on the line for us to secure America’s right to free speech,” she said. “In this case, may that right be used to promote equality and respect.”

Hear, hear. What a class act. Puts women like Pelosi and Hillary Clinton to shame.

most people with families are pro-family. He's a comedian they p!$$ people off no need for speeches, and that little "thanks to our U.S. military men and women" crap is played out and half-hearted. We are fighting for everyones elses freedom and rights.

Palin should really go back to hunting with her LV rifle bag.

Her eldest son enlisted in the Army about a year ago. You know the one kid the media DIDN'T go after.

You think all science teachers are female? I thought liberals hated stereotyping. Which parent do think it is?

Both of them got attention and ratings. They probably high-fived each other behind the scenes.

Palin accepts David Letterman's apology ...

I would have hoped that was the end of it; but this is JT and the web. Carry on!

"I hope she just goes away now."

Why? A democracy requires debate of ideas and a loyal opposition. I would hope that the Republicans come up with some good candidates. The discussion is always better that way.

"thanks to our U.S. military men and women" crap is played out and half-hearted"

Whom would you prefer to thank? You don't really expect that your rights would last five minutes without a good defense, do you? Credit where credit is due.
