It wasn’t infidelity. Letterman while living with his now wife wasn’t married. Neither was the woman he slept with.
I might think that living together equals marriage but it doesn’t to many people. And if he was married? He’s a late night talk show host not a politician. He doesn’t have to be better than thou. I know so many straight men who ran to judge Letterman. Before they knew the facts.
I believe they relate to Letterman too much. Not sleeping with other woman. But there’s something normative New York about Letterman. He’s a bit snarky but I don’t find him nasty. He’s the regular guy who became something big and everybody wants to be like him–or wants to hate him.
Letterman had more reason than most to be scared of a blackmailer. He had a woman stalker for years who called herself “Mrs. David Letterman,” and probably believed it. She killed herself. That probably creeped him. An employee of his was convicted of conspiring to kidnap his son, Harry, and Harry’s nanny.
We live in a society that’s turning more and more to the right. I live in a place where the regular Republican party has a table at a fair with big letters “Obamacide.” No Democratic table. I don’t consider myself a Democrat anymore–party of wimps, but I’m going to the next meeting and if I have to get tables at every city and county happening, hell yes. People have to hear balanced views.
I don’t remember Joe McCarthy but I heard about him all my life. We live in a society with a faux morality where Republicans seem to be more moral though god the scandals. I don’t want a return to the days where celebrities who lived with people outside of marriage openly had to leave the country. Nor do I want to live in a country where celebrities overtake the country. I’m a bit sick of Jon & Kate & all eight kids. I’m sick of celebrities leading the news every night.
It’s not that I lack a sense of humor or fun. It’s just that I think we all, Democrats, Republicans, everybody, seem to have things backwards.
Letterman is a good example of that. He went to the FBI. He gave a phony check for two million and the man’s lawyer is saying that’s proof of his guilt. I hope nobody buys into that but really our society has a critical thinking quotient of minus ten.
I don’t care about people’s sex lives. It’s their life. I think we would all be a lot better off if we stopped focusing on sex lives, and began to focus on what’s wrong and what’s right with this country.
When you go to 9/11 Memorials that really are preludes to tea parties–on public property with the mayor speaking, you begin to truly question everything once again. 9/11 was one of the transforming incidents of my life. Politics don’t belong in 9/11 Memorials. I can’t and won’t let that go.
Nor will I let Republican tables that scream “Obamacide” go. The people sitting there were laughing and laughing over the absurd health reform fight. Maybe they all have great health insurance. Though a lot of people here don’t have health insurance. If they don’t have resources they really don’t care about a hospital suing them. And the people who do–well they can afford the $80 for a check up. They don’t want to subside the lazy people who can’t.
I can afford the check up. It is the things that possibly can be found at a check up that I can’t afford. I think too much about things that aren’t going to happen, you think.
That’s why one of the best friends I have ever had is in the hospital recovering from surgery from one brain aneurysm as the doctors figure out what to do about the second.
I’m scared and so I watch Letterman because he makes me laugh.
Ahmadinejad’s revealed to be Jewish. He can deliver a hate filled rant to himself.
That’s funny. I’m Jewish. It’s too true. I do them all the time.
My mother refused to believe Letterman wasn’t Jewish. His name. His humor. His being….Yes she saw Dave’s Mom in Indiana. That only made her more sure. He’s Lutheran, mommy, Lutheran!!!!!! I speak to dead people. Uh, I even yell at dead people. My Mom will have died eight years ago next week. And her birthday would have been this coming Saturday. This isn’t my favorite time of year even when everything is going perfectly
I love Letterman’s timing. I love the way he repeats lines he loves. The way he twists his tongue. His ties that match the set. OK I love Letterman but not in a creepy stalker kind of way.
