Let's hear it for Letterman

Outstanding snark:

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi is calling the Bush presidency a total failure. Total failure. I don't know, I think he's done okay. I think he's done okay if you don't count Iraq, the economy, the environment, Afghanistan, the mortgage crisis. I think he's done all right... The deficit. Gas prices. Hurricane Katrina. Illegal wire tapping...

---David Letterman


  1. If you think about it, talk show hosts like Letterman, Leno, Stewart, are really the court jesters of our time. They can get away with saying the absolute truth with no real personal repercussions.

  2. Yes, Magdalena, I've often thought that myself. It's good we have them!
