    An apology from David Letterman was good enough for Sarah Palin - but not for protesters who demanded the late night host's dismissal Tuesday at a Broadway demonstration. "Fire Dave! Fire Dave!" the crowd of about 50 protesters chanted as Letterman fans filtered into the Ed Sullivan Theater for the show's taping. "I hope to have him see the light," said demonstrator Josephine Sarnok, 59, of Newark. "I think it was over the line." BettyJean Kling, 61, accused Letterman of using the Alaska governor's family to boost his ratings. She stood by a large plywood sign with the words "Fire...

    On Monday night's "Late Show" host David Letterman re-addressed his comments about Gov. Sarah Palin and her teenage daughter. Letterman made a more serious apology than his response last week. "I had, honestly, no idea that the 14-year-old girl, I had no idea that anybody was at the ball game except the governor, and I was told at the time she was there with Rudy Giuliani," Letterman said.

    David Letterman "jokes" about Sarah Palin's teenage daughter having sex with A-Rod during a baseball game. For good measure he suggests the daughter would be of interest to Eliot Spitzer, infamous for soliciting a prostitute. If Ed Schultz condemned Letterman, I missed it. But let Sarah Palin's acceptance of Letterman's belated apology include thanks to the US military for making freedom of speech possible for all Americans, and Schultz condems Palin as "nothing but political slime."

Bristol Palin, the Alaska governor's then-pregnant 17-year-old, was a punch line for almost all of the late-night TV crew -- Jay Leno, Conan O'Brien, Jon Stewart, as well as Letterman -- almost as soon as her mother was chosen as Sen. John McCain's Republican running mate. Facing enormous criticism for his Palin-daughter joke, Letterman on his show last night apologized to the...

Even Letterman called his remarks ugly and unpleasant. But his half-hearted sarcastic apology last week didn't smooth things over. The furor raged on. And tonight, David Letterman might be really apologizing. During today's pre-taped "Late Show," Letterman had this to say.

    Letterman is the symptom. The disease is callous insensitivity masquerading as “open-mindedness” and “tolerance.” The true opponent of Letterman and his liberal friends is not the Palin family, or conservatives in general, but decency itself. It is only halftime, but so far, the score is Letterman 21, decency 0. We will have to work harder in the second half.

Top 10 lists about Sarah Palin's attack on David Letterman are already being written but really there is only one reason Palin should relent—she’s not a good enough politician to play. Palin has spent much of her public life in feuds with the state legislature, with her ex-brother-in-law, with John McCain’s staff, with Levi Johnston’s family. An early fight with the chairman of Alaska’s Oil & Gas Commission paved the way to the governor’s office. She...
