A certain attitude adjustment can be detected there; amazing what a spot of actual activism will do, yes? Particularly when it's directed at advertisers. The general reaction elsewhere to this one is 'kinda real'; see also Cynthia Yockey, Michelle Malkin, Little Miss Attila, the Rhetorician, The Other McCain, Ace of Spades, Hot Air, Riehl World View, Big Hollywood, Wizbang, & Dan Collins. Also, Governor Palin has already accepted the apology:
“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,” she said.
“Letterman certainly has the right to ‘joke’ about whatever he wants to, and thankfully we have the right to express our reaction,” Palin said. “This is all thanks to our U.S. Military women and men putting their lives on the line for us to secure America’s Right to Free Speech - in this case, may that right be used to promote equality and respect.”
And I don't think that these guys are going to stop. Given that Letterman should have started with a "Sorry you were offended" last week, instead of smirking it off, well: I can see why they wouldn't.
