Good for her.
Sarah Palin accepted David Letterman’s apology today on behalf of young girls who are sexually exploited by dirty old men.
FOX News reported:
In a statement to FOXNews.com early Tuesday, the Alaska governor said, “Of course it’s accepted on behalf of young women, like my daughters, who hope men who ‘joke’ about public displays of sexual exploitation of girls will soon evolve.”
“Letterman certainly has the right to ‘joke’ about whatever he wants to, and thankfully we have the right to express our reaction,” Palin said. “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.”

For some reason Sarah Palin’s response reminds me of that brave young Iranian woman kicking the Basij guard at the bus stop in Tehran.
** There is a website set up- Fire David Letterman where you are invited to send CBS and Letterman’s sponsors a message.
Also- There is a protest scheduled at the Sullivan Theatre in New York today at at 4:30 to 6:30 PM EST.
It has not been cancelled.
