At the risk of beating a dead horse… David letterman needs to cough up a “real” apology and fast. Just swallow the big pill, get the chip off the shoulder, quit trying to make those stupid half baked “joke” apologies and just do the deed. You know the old woman scorned thing, well it just doesn’t fade into the sunset when you pick on someones kid (no matter hold old the child is).
A list of Letterman’s show sponsors is already floating in cyber space and you know how we all love to boycott , especially in this economy when we are up for any excuse not to buy. Even if you really didn’t mean it exactly like you said it, or you felt it was misconstrued, or blah,blah,blah… you could probably put the skids on the downhill slide of your popularity/show/career with two simple words. Just get over your self and do it before your doing stand-up in Peoria.
I watched with great interest as President Obama and his entourage of many dropped in (like it wasn’t planned for days) to a Washington hamburger joint called Five Guys hamburgers and fries to pick up lunch for himself and staffers. I wasn’t so intrigued by the fact that he liked Five Guys hamburgers (they are great) but the aftermath of the visit was quite astounding. Even though it is a pretty hopping place for lunch normally, now you cannot drive by there without seeing an unbelievable line literally wrapped around the block at all hours of the day and night.
It got me to thinking. I know he’s real busy with the war, the economy and stuff, but if he and maybe his wife could kind of make the rounds of a few small businesses a week, you know, buy a dress here, a hot dog there… Then that could give the backbone of the U.S. economy (small businesses) a real leg up. I’m sure any of these small businesses that would reap the benefits would put the extra money to good use. Like , paying higher interest rates on credit cards, higher gas, health care, higher insurance premiums, higher food costs, and of course , helping bail out every stupid, greedy, large corporation that doesn’t have a clue. So, President Obama, I could use a few bucks myself, my garage sale is this Saturday and I have plenty of room for a nice long line.
Night time talk show host David Letterman and/or his gaggle of “writers”, must have reached their collective peak a while back now that they are scrounging for jokes about 14 year old children. I’m sure you have already heard over and over the non-funny details but really What was he/they thinking? Just because his star doesn’t shine too brightly anymore, and he’s too tired from running around after his own 6 year old doesn’t mean he has to resort to bullying children humor. They are trying to stop that in schools now you know, so maybe Letterman needs a lesson or two in appropriate child-adult behavior.
