Fall On Your Own Sword
I've never watched all that much late night television; I'm either asleep or out doing something productive like drinking. But I watch Letterman from time to time and truly enjoyed when Anne Heche was on, giving him hell about being married and calling her ex "a lazy-ass." A lot of people got their collective panties in a wad over her statement, but come on -- haven't we all been there? A little too honest in the company of many? And what is humor if not hostility? Like Lenny Bruce said about the crucifixion, It was just a party that got out of hand.
Well, Dave himself has had to turn his wit upon himself, fall on his own sword, and has come out funnier than ever. For those living under big rocks, he's being blackmailed about having sex with some of his staff. Not exactly a shocker to me -- here's a man who waited nearly twenty years to get married to the mother of his child. And has a lot of money. And power. He also looks like a thin version of one of my exes. Evil. But still funny despite our assessments of his conduct as moral or not. Columnists are predicting he will alienate women. Really? I kind of doubt it. If we've put up with him for this long, much like his long suffering wife, we'll probably see him through this storm.
