Palin on “Late Show”? No Go

Sarah Palin declined David Letterman’s offer to come on “Late Show,” after the host admitted that a joke about her daughter was in “poor taste.”

Per CNN, a spokeswoman said: “The Palins have no intention of providing a ratings boost for David Letterman by appearing on his show. Plus, it would be wise to keep Willow away from David Letterman.”

Given that Letterman, in delivering his apology or whatever you call it, had more fun at the Palins’ expense, I am not surprised.
