Letterman steps in it

I was on my way into work this morning when, on the radio, a local morning show was talking about Letterman's comments about Sarah Palin's daughter at the Yankee's game and her getting knocked up by Alex Rodriguez.
I got to thinking, it wasn't that funny of a joke and didn't give me a chuckle.
But, obviously, it touched a nerve with Sarah Palin as she went on to make angry comments, especially since she was at the game with her 14-year-old daughter.
Her other daughter is famous for having a child out of wed lock with some moron she knew from high school.
The joke wasn't funny.
But, Sarah Palin really doesn't have a leg to stand on with this one.
When she decided to run for vice president and opened up her own family for scrutiny, this was bound to happen.
She has every right to call Letterman out for making a joke about her family.
But, the minute they decided to let the media into their family, invite People magazine to Bristol's high school graduation and agree to interviews long after the campaign ended, they should realize it's going to come at a price.
