So Sarah Palin has accepted David Letterman’s apology, and if there is a god in heaven, it’s over.
What amazes me is all the time and energy spent debating, dissing, slicing, dicing and vetting an admittedly bad joke and a response that may or may not have been calculated.
In other words, it turned into hours of cable programming.
In the end, all that needed to be said was this observation from Palin, as reported by the A.P:
Palin said Tuesday that Letterman has the right to joke about whatever he wants to, and “thankfully we have the right to express our reaction.”
And that’s what it’s all about. Finis.
