Advice to Sarah Palin; Remember Lincoln on pig wrasslin'

Last night on Fox News, Sir Charles Krauthammer had some sage advice for Sarah Palin about David Letterman's publicity-seeking slurs against her and her daughters: Ignore him. Letterman wants publicity because his show is down in the ratings. And Palin lowers herself as a political leader and governor of the great state of Alaska by even responding to his ridiculous "jokes."

Reminds me of a quote that I think is from Abraham Lincoln, another political leader who had to endure many outrageous slings and arrows from his opponents: "Never wrestle with a pig. You'll just get dirty and the pig will enjoy it."

Am I saying Letterman is a pig? Certainly. Perhaps Todd Palin should visit New York and mug Letterman in a dark alley. But Sarah Palin is probably wise enough to ignore him henceforth.
