WHITE HOUSE VS. LETTERMAN

So I'm listening to Majority Report on Air America Radio; they're talking to Atrios and they mention "the Letterman thing." Wow, check it out here.

You should watch the video clips, but in a nutshell: A preteen boy was caught yawning, checking his watch, and nearly falling asleep behind G.W. Bush during a speech. Funny! Then CNN plays the clip and reports "The White House has informed us that, funny as the kid was, he was edited in to the speech by Letterman staffers." (voice of Lil John) a-Whuuut? Letterman, understandably pissed, says that is an outright lie – remember that when you go to the voting booth this November. Heh.



Janeane Garofalo has Dave Chapelle on now. He's voting for the first time, but wishes he could vote for somebody that actually has a conscience and believes in something. Yep, even Chapelle has the cynicism bug, but he knows the lesser of two evils is... less evil.

Not only am I sick of hearing that, but it wasn't that funny the first time around and doesn't really have a political point. Please Move On, Al. Katherine Lanpher isn't cut out to play straight man either, but hey – it's only the first day.

What's funny? Franken's Rumsfeld impersonation, and G. Gordon Liddy saying he'd kill a man very slowly if Franken asked him to.
