Sarah Palin’s at it again, using her kids to keep herself in the public eye. This time it’s over David Letterman’s bad joke about a Palin daughter getting knocked up by baseball player Alex Rodriquez during the 7th inning.
Letterman thought 18-year-old Bristol was with Palin at a New York Yankees game recently, and that’s who he intended to lampoon. (Why?) But Palin was really with 14-year-old Willow.
The joke inadvertently hit the wrong target, and now Palin won’t shut up about it.
I’ve seen Letterman explain and apologize several times now. Palin even accepted his apology. But she still can’t help smearing the outrage around to include all females under 18 — even though Letterman explained very clearly that’s not who he meant.
Suddenly Palin, whose positions on most women’s issues would leave them all barefoot and pregnant, is their champion, and she’s loving every minute of it.
If Letterman can be faulted for anything, it’s for such a lousy joke, so off-base and topically outdated, it wasn’t even remotely funny.
As for Palin, she reminds us again she’s just another Republican who gets a wrong-headed idea and won’t let it go, even after all the facts come out.
But enough already!
