David Letterman has apologized to Sarah Palin — kind of.letterman-palin-b

The talk show host joked on Tuesday night’s Late Show that Palin’s daughter had sex with Alex Rodriguez after her visit to a New York Yankees game — causing the governor to slam him for making “sexually perverted comments” about her 14-year-old, Willow.

The feud continues!

A feisty Sarah Palin just told Matt Lauer on the Today show that Letterman doesn’t owe her an apology for the joke about her daughter. “He doesn’t have to apologize to me. I would like to see him to apologize to young women across the country for contributing to that thread throughout our culture that makes it seem OK to talk about … statutory rape. It’s not cool and it’s not funny.”

When Lauer brought up that Letterman clarified that he wasn’t daughter about her 14-year-old daughter Willow (shown here holding baby Trig), but was targeting 18-year-old Bristol, Palin said, “I would say that you and anybody else are extremely na├»ve to believe David Letterman’s very extremely convenient excuse. … No wonder young girls have such low self esteem when we think it’s funny for a so-called comedian to make a remark like he did and think it’s acceptable.”

Matt also asked about Palin’s statement about declining to appear on Letterman’s show, in which she said she has “no intention of providing a ratings boost … plus it would be wise to keep Willow away from David Letterman.” What exactly did that mean?

“Take it however you want to take it,” said Palin. “Willow, no doubt would want to stay away from David Letterman,” and, “Hey maybe he couldn’t be trusted because Willow’s had enough of this type of comment! Maybe Willow would want to react to him in a way that would catch him off guard!”

She continues, “The problem is the double standard that has been applied here,” she said, linking it back to the campaign when “Barack Obama said family’s off limit and The Candidate Who Must Be Obeyed - everybody adhered to that and left him alone. They didn’t do that on the other side of the ticket, so that’s a political double standard.” And as for “this kind of humor,” she said, “I don’t find it humorous!”
