Is Letterman Joking Too Soon about Sex Scandal?

The jokes haven't stopped since David Letterman revealed in an on-air confession that he was the victim of an extortion plot by a producer who threatened to reveal the talk show host's sexual affairs with staff members.

While Letterman has shown both chagrin and contrition, he's done it his way -- with his usual wry wit.

"I would give anything to be hiking on the Appalachian Trail," he joked on the "Late Show" Monday night, in a reference to S.C. governor Mark Sanford whose dramatic extramarital affair had been a previous prime-time target for Letterman.
