Scared Monkeys Radio Daily Commentary – Wednesday, September 25, 2008 – Dana Has Harsh Words For David Letterman … Letterman Thinks He’s More Important than the US Economy
- Dana took offense to Letterman’s comments about John McCain and offers a few choice words for David.
DAVID LETTERMAN THINKS HIS COMEDY IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN THE UNITES STATES FINANCIAL CRISIS … What an ego!
“You don’t suspend your campaign. This doesn’t smell right. This isn’t the way a tested hero behaves.” And he joked: “I think someone’s putting something in his metamucil.”
“He can’t run the campaign because the economy is cratering? Fine, put in your second string quarterback, Sara Palin. Where is she?”
“What are you going to do if you’re elected and things get tough? Suspend being president? We’ve got a guy like that now!” (David Letterman)
Interesting enough Letterman makes the comment during his dialog that John McCain has canceled his appearance and has suspended his campaign because the economy is exploding. That is met by laughter by the audience. Let’s understand this … the United States is facing a financial crisis that all agree is the worst since the Stock Market Crash of 1929 and The Great Depression and a late night talk show goof makes a joke about it and the audience laughs. BRILLIANT! Letterman gets upset and mocks McCain for canceling on his stupid show vs. dealing with economic matter.
The LEFT just does not get it. It’s not a matter that McCain canceled the Letterman appearance and instead was doing an interview with Katie Couric as Comments from the Left explains. The fact of the matter is that going on a LATE NIGHT COMEDY SHOW WAS NOT APPROPRIATE FOR THE TIMES!
I must have missed the derogatory comments from the LEFT when Barack Obama canceled his appearance on SNL due to Hurricane IKE. The point being is that Obama was correct in not doing a comedy show during such a troubled time. No body mocked or blamed Obama for canceling, as it was the right thing for him to do. So I ask the LEFT, what’s the difference? McCain thought doing a late night talk show was inappropriate and doing a quick news interview before going back to DC was. That’s what I would expect a President to do.
CBS News executives were red- faced yesterday trying to explain how David Letterman used unaired news footage of Sen. John McCain with Katie Couric to embarrass the Republican presidential candidate.
Asked if CBS officials had a problem with Letterman using the internal news feed, a spokeswoman for “The Evening News” refused to address the issue.
But several CBS News executives – who asked not to be identified – said that the stunt did not go down well within the news division.
“If we had done something like that to him, someone around here would end up getting fired,” one said.
News officials found out Letterman was using the internal feed shortly after it showed up on an internal CBS feed carrying the “Late Show” taping.
“They were pretty aggravated,” a CBS News source told The Post.
