Sarah Palin says she accepts David Letterman's apology for the joke about her daughter.Howie P.S.: Has the circus left town yet? The HuffPo story points out this "irony":
When he began a joke about Bernard Madoff, whom he called "the most hated man in America," he then amended that to a list of two.
"Me, Bernie Madoff," he said. "He was waaay out in front until a couple of days ago."
The irony is that fellow late-night comics Jay Leno and Conan O'Brien have all made more jokes about Bristol's pregnancy without incurring the wrath of Palin and others.
According to the Washington Post, through mid-March Leno had made 15 jokes and O'Brien made 20 jokes at Bristol's expense, compared to 8 for Letterman.
The Post adds that Palin even appeared on "Saturday Night Live" after the show performed a skit joking about incest in her family, with comic Bobby Moynihan quipping, "Uhhh -- what about the husband? You KNOW he's doing those daughters! I mean, come on! It's Alaska!"
