In an extraordinary gesture of conciliation, David Letterman spent a good chunk of the first half of Monday night’s Late Show apologizing for the jokes that so offended Gov. Sarah Palin AGAIN.
His opening words were a sarcastic, “I’m David Letterman,good-will ambassador… I got a call from Mom today. She told me she was siding with the governor.” Talking about how Bernie Madoff’s wife said recently she felt “shunned by friends and neighbors,” he added, “Hey, tell me about it.”
Dave obviously `gets it`, but it is pathetic that he feel like he has to apologize.
“The National Organization for Women named David Letterman to their Hall of Shame. Will Letterman be joining Jay Leno? Conan O’Brien? Craig Ferguson? Seth Myers? Rush Limbaugh? Or John McCain?”
If anyone has a gripe it should be Alex Rodriguez. The same joke implies that he is a rapist. Even in Alaska, the legal age is just 16.

At the end of the live taping in Manhattan, Buck thanked Lange for putting an end to his show after one episode.
