Sarah Palin-David Letterman Feud: Outrage or overkill

“Letterman’s “Top 10” list Tuesday night focused on Palin’s recent trip to New York, and included several cracks: “Bought makeup from Bloomingdale’s to update her ‘slutty flight attendant’ look,” Letterman said. But it was a line in Letterman’s monologue that set off a firestorm: “One awkward moment for Sarah Palin at the Yankee game, during the seventh inning, her daughter was knocked up by Alex Rodriguez. Palin was in New York with her 14-year-old daughter, Willow. ” Story Here:

Palin says Letterman’s jokes are degrading to women and the one about her 14-year old daughter having sex with Alex Rodriguez amounts to a crude rape joke. Letterman apologized and offered her on the show for which Palin denied. Is there any lessons from this exchange? Do comment.
