|She finally accepts David Letterman's torturous apology, but then she adds this:
"Letterman certainly has the right to 'joke' about whatever he wants to, and thankfully we have the right to express our reaction," Palin said in a statement. "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."Huh??? So Sarah accepts on behalf of all women ... and then she uses the opportunity to exploit the military? I guess she's taking time off carting poor Bristol around on that publicity hounding "abstinence tour" to do something really useful with her time. Please sit down, Wasila woman. For your own sake.
Meanwhile, Roger Simon plays the role of Palin P.R. flak on "Hardball," but fails to make the case that Palin is the new Uber Defender of Womanhood. Earth to Simon: you're a guy. Most women have no time for a woman whose entire public life is devoted to having beef, with anyone handy, including comedians. If you missed, it, catch Tina Brown on the re-air. She makes good sense when she advises Sister Sarah to "shut up and study up."
