Palin Rep Ups the Rhetoric in Letterman Row: "It would be wise to keep Willow away."

The Palin spokesperson turned things up a notch in response to Letterman's "apology" and request that Palin appear on his show. According to Fox News:
"The Palins have no intention of providing a rating's boost for David Letterman by appearing on his show," the Alaska governor's rep said in a statement to FOXNews.com. "Plus, it would be wise to keep Willow away from David Letterman."

Bloggers have been (accurately) insinuating that Letterman is a dirty-old-man, but for the representative of a sitting governor and potential presidential candidate to suggest that Letterman might be a pedophile might be crossing the line.

They're probably better off allowing bloggers and talk radio do the dirty work of accusations or insinuations while they approach the situation from another angle.

I do like the rep pointing out Letterman's desire to use Palin for a ratings boost, though.

Do you think Palin's rep pushed it a little too far, or did Letterman have it coming?
