Here’s what The New York Times wrote:

‘The Newest Nominee’

Monologue | Aired Monday night on CBS: You know who was in town this weekend, went to a Yankee game? Sarah Palin, governor of Alaska. And she was up there with Rudy Giuliani. They were sitting together. And their seats were, well, let me tell you where their seats were. They were way, way in far right field. They were so far right. Crazy.

Sarah Palin got there early and she was taken to her seat, shown to her seat, by Joe the Usher.

While she was at the Yankee game, Sarah Palin managed to spend $150,000 on hats and t-shirts.

But Sarah Palin — it was exciting, because everybody loves New York City and she spent the entire weekend here in New York City.

But, here is what David Letterman actually said in his monologue (the srubbed parts are highlighted):

And, they had a wonderful time. The toughest part of her visit was keeping Elliot Spitzer away from her daughter. That was tough.

One awkward moment during the game. Maybe you heard about it. Maybe you saw it on one of the highlight reels. One awkward moment for Sarah Palin at the Yankee game. During the 7th inning her daughter was knocked up by Alex Rodriguez.

“The transcript we received omitted the joke referred to in the comments below, presumably for reasons of taste. Had the transcript included the joke, we would not have run it. Monologue jokes are routinely edited for taste and brevity.”

Nice to see the state run media covering for one of their own.

Tim Blair has more.
