David Letterman

It looks like the Palin/Letterman controversy has largely played out. Having been a Letterman fan back in the 80’s I think it is unfortunate to see Dave turn into such a weeny. What I take away from this is I now understand why Jay Leno replaced Johnny Carson instead of Letterman. It also seems to be the case that what used to fuel his comic energy, insecurity, now feeds a certain viciousness towards political opponents. He masks his vitriol under the rubric of being a comedian.
