After Letterman apology, what's next for Palin?
In Palin's mind, it's probably over. She not only got the apology she was looking for but she even found support from unsuspecting sources like the View's Joy Behar and the left-leaning National Organization for Women.
Regardless of whether there's any life left to this, Palin has proved she can win a smackdown with one of the kings of late night. Letterman has also shown he knows how to grab headlines, apologizing multiple times until he gets it right, exactly when he needs to: Conan O’Brien is struggling as Jay Leno’s successor over at NBC, and this is Letterman’s big chance to steal viewers.
