Letterman Slams Palin Over 'Vanity Fair' Article, Possible 2012 Run (VIDEO)

Last night, Letterman addressed the rumors swirling that Dick Cheney will run for president in 2012 with Sarah Palin as his VP candidate. "Talk about your dream ticket...Oh, buddy, the comedy recession is over," he said.

Dave went on to discuss the recently released "Vanity Fair" article on Levi Johnston, in which the father of Bristol Palin's baby claims Sarah wanted to keep her daughter's pregnancy a secret:

Sarah told me she had a great idea: we would keep it a secret--nobody would know that Bristol was pregnant. She told me that once Bristol had the baby she and Todd would adopt him...She was nagging--she wouldn't give up. She would say, 'So, are you gonna let me adopt him?' We both kept telling her we were definitely not going to let her adopt the baby. I think Sarah wanted to make Bristol look good, and she didn't want people to know that her 17-year-old daughter was going to have a kid.

"Oh yeah, like I'm gonna make a joke about this. None of my business. Whatever you want. Live and let live, that's my motto," said Letterman to waves of applause. This obvious reference to the trouble he had with Palin supporters after joking about her family a few months back didn't stop Dave from taking shots at the ex-Governor for her hunting skills and Russia-watching.
