Letterman Says He Wasn't Talking About Palin's 14 Year-Old Getting Knocked Up at Game– He Was Talking About Her 18 Year-Old …Invites Her On Show

Oh, Okay…
Letterman was talking about Palin’s 18 year-old not her 14 year-old getting knocked up in public at Yankee Stadium.
Thanks for clearing that up Dave.

Letterman then invites Palin on his show.
EW.com reported, via Free Republic:

Taping tonight’s episode of The Late Show, David Letterman took a few minutes to respond to Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, who called him “pathetic” in a radio interview after he made her and her family the butt of a recent Top 10 list. The late-night host had drawn particular fire from Palin and some pundits for a joke about one of Palin’s daughters being impregnated by New York Yankees star Alex Rodriguez during a trip to Yankee Stadium. Camp Palin apparently took the joke to be a crack against Palin’s 14-year-old daughter Willow, who had recently attended a Yankees game, but Letterman insisted today that the real target was 18-year-old daughter Bristol.

“We were, as we often do, making jokes about people in the news and we made some jokes about Sarah Palin and her daughter [Bristol]… and now they’re upset with me…” Letterman says on tonight’s show. “These are not jokes made about her 14-year-old daughter. I would never, never make jokes about raping or having sex of any description with a 14-year-old girl…. Am I guilty of poor taste? Yes. Did I suggest that it was okay for her 14-year-old daughter to be having promiscuous sex? No.” Saying he hopes he’s “cleared part of this up,” Letterman extended an invitation to Palin to come on the show as a guest.

Sarah Palin should send her husband Todd on the show instead.
I’d watch that.
