Former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin says she accepts talk show host David Letterman's apology for the joke he made about her daughter. The Alaska governor, in a statement issued Tuesday, said the apology was accepted "on behalf of all young women, like my daughters, who hope men who 'joke' about public displays of sexual exploitation of girls will soon evolve." On his CBS' "Late Show" on Monday night, Letterman said his joke about one of Palin's daughters being "knocked up," meaning gotten pregnant, by Yankees baseball star Alex Rodriguez can't be defended. He said the joke referred to 18-year-old mother Bristol Palin, not her 14-year-old sister Willow. But Letterman said it's his responsibility that people believed that he intended to target Willow, who had attended a New York Yankees game with her mother. "I'm sorry about it, and I'll try to do better in the future," he said.
