Dave: I Take 'Full Responsibilty' For 'Beyond Flawed' Palin Joke, and I'm Sorry

David Letterman is making a full-throated apology for his controversial joke about Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin's daughter.


During a taping of tonight's edition of his CBS "Late Show," Letterman went much further than his last explanation of the joke, in which he quipped that a baseball player had "knocked up" Palin's daughter.


"I told a bad joke," Letterman said. "I told a joke that was beyond flawed, and my intent is completely meaningless compared to the perception. And since it was a joke I told, I feel that I need to do the right thing here and apologize for having told that joke."

Alaska Governor Sarah Palin has accepted David Letterman’s apology about jokes the late-night host made about her daughter on his show last week, ABC News reports.

In part Palin said, in a statement, “"Of course it's accepted on behalf of young women, like my daughters, who hope men who 'joke' about public displays of sexual exploitation of girls will soon evolve."
