Anyone have a spinal surgeon here?

David Letterman's backbone seems to have jellyfied Monday night, as he finally caved in to the ridiculous trumped-up pseudo-scandal revolving around his jokes about Sarah Palin's daughter two weeks ago, and openly apologized on the air.

David Letterman directly apologized to Gov. Sarah Palin and her daughters on his program Monday night, saying he took responsibility for a joke that had offended Ms. Palin, her family, and her supporters.

Mr. Letterman opened the desk portion of his show with the apology in which he said he wanted to say he was sorry to “to the two daughters involved, Bristol and Willow, and also to the governor and her family and everybody else who was outraged by the joke.” Two weeks ago on his “Late Show” program on CBS, he had joked about Governor Palin attending a Yankee game with her daughter.


Monday he acknowledged that as the host of the program it was his responsibility to get the joke right. “I told a joke that was beyond flawed, and my intent is completely meaningless compared to the perception.”

He also insisted he was confused about the daughters. “I was told at the time she was there with Rudy Guiliani,” Mr. Letterman said. “I should have made the joke about Rudy.”

What a ridiculous saga this has been. This was nothing but faked, fabricated outrage aimed towards a prominent media figure in a pathetic attempt to keep a second-rate politician in the limelight just a little bit longer. Seriously: no-one gives a shit about Sarah Palin. She's an idiot, can't form a sentence to save her life, and her family is barely fit to even be in a Jerry Springer Show audience. Enough with the bullshit already. Let her go.
