“It’s cool!” she exclaimed. “You know, out with the old, in with the new!”

“Maybe he’ll start a trend when we talk about politics, too!” Palin added. “Politicians who have maybe been there in Washington, D.C., a bit too long, allow some new blood in there, some new energy, new ideas to get the country back on the right track. Maybe Letterman is going to kind of start that trend. Out with the old, in with the new.”

In June 2009, Letterman joked that Palin’s daughter was “knocked up” by baseball star Alex Rodriguez when the two attended a New York Yankees game. He later apologized after Palin took offense, and she has steered clear of his show since.
