In case you missed it, there was a little more fallout from Sarah Palin's surprise resignation as Alaska governor.
She feuded last month with late-night talk show host David Letterman after he joked that one of Palin's daughters had been "knocked up" by Alex Rodriguez at a New York Yankees game. He apologized, but insisted that he was talking about 18-year-old Bristol, an unwed mother.
But Palin emphasized that it was 14-year-old Willow who was in the stands and accused Letterman of making light of statutory rape and of older men victimizing young women.
So on his show Monday night, Letterman did a bit on Palin's resignation and asked sheepishly, "Something I said?"
In fact, the Washington Post reported, a Palin representative said the Letterman joke did play a role in her decision, along with all the other media scrutiny and brickbats thrown her way.
Letterman didn't let up, joking that Palin (a former Miss Alaska beauty pageant contestant) would be replaced by Miss Congeniality and playing a spliced-together clip of Palin saying, "The world needs more insane governors."
At the end of his bit, he did make a peace offering of sorts, joking that her next job could be as his co-host on the "Sarah & Dave" show.
You betcha -- not.
