David Letterman, a graduate of the Joseph Goebbels school of propaganda (Repeat the big lie often enough and people will believe it) if not of comedy, is certainly no friend of Republicans.
The CBS late night presence, perhaps best known for his disgusting rants against Sara Palin, apparently greeted Vice Presidential nominee Paul Ryan with a comment so vile that the CBS censors decided to bleep it out Monday night.
Yes, I admit it; watching Letterman is a guilty pleasure. He's much funnier than the guy who forced Conan onto Turner TV. Letterman can in fact be quite hilarious. Even some of his political stabs, almost always aimed at Republicans, can be quite funny.
Yes, I'm a bit sick of the clip with Romney and the dog on the top of his car and the dancing horse--as I say, repetition is a hallmark of the Goebbels school of propaganda.
However, I'm fairly certain I detected a few words being bleeped out Monday night when Letterman went after Paul Ryan.
Help me out here.
Am I the only one who caught this?
Did Letterman in fact utter something so vile that even his CBS master would not allow it to be aired?
Or was my dish simply on the fritz for those two seconds?
I think not.
Wouldn't it be refreshing it Letterman spread his humor around by attacking a few Republicans from time to time? Hey, Dave, try taking a shot at the Vice Buffoon, aka the embarrassment known as our Vice President.
