David Letterman is my man crush, well, actually used to be my man crush. I mean for God sakes he’s 62 years old now, so now it’s not so much a crush as it is just deep admiration, respect and gratefulness for years of laughter. He is to me what Johnny Carson was for my parents. Plus, he’s always been a class act and in my opinion he continues to be.
Last week he made some jokes about Sarah Palin, the super religious governor of Alaska, and her daughter. Now what does Palin being super religious part have to do with it?? Because, for the most part, stupid church people don’t have a sense of humor about themselves. Second, stupid church people don’t have a sense of what is truly funny. And third, stupid church people usually can’t separate the joke from a personal attack and just simply “get it” (and most importantly leave it alone). No, instead stupid church people like Sarah Palin have to then draw attention to themselves, their irrational beliefs and skewed world views… and in the end make things worse and not better for themselves.
What follows from Letterman is the absolute best “apology” ever by anyone in the history of the world. Well, at least that I have seen. Great job Dave!
