Women Had Sex with Letterman?

I think the extortionist picked the wrong target.

I don't watch Letterman, or any of the other late night hosts. I used to watch the Tonight show when Johnny Carson was on but lost interest after he left. Even if I did watch one of the shows it wouldn't be Letterman's, I just don't find him funny. Having said that, I think he did the right thing.

Of course it would have been better if he had quoted the Duke of Wellington: "Publish and be damned."

Didn't you know that the cure for ugly is money?

This CBS producer must be Dan Rather/Mary Mapes stupid. Everybody already knew Dave Letterman was an immoral, woman-using prick, so there's nothing to reveal in an extortion scheme. He amused his audience at his mother's expense for years, using her in skits as the joke. He married his baby's momma long after he had made the boy a bastard and the momma a slut. His treatment of Sarah Palin and her family is beyond shameful, and is worthy of a good ass-beating by Todd Palin. Tip, meet iceberg. Letterman is a pathetic excuse for anything admirable or honorable.

NevadaDailySteve .. From what I can see, Letterman doesn't read actual long books, like biographies, especially if they contain the wisdom of actual military heroes. It might contaminate his world vision.

Who knew Letterman was such a player. Good for him.

It hurts me to say this, but...

...good for Letterman. Not the boinking the staff thing -- that's just stupid -- but the refusal to be blackmailed.

Of course, now that he's come clean any fired female (we assume) staffer with a shred of evidence can nail him back for some sexual harrasment lottery winnings.

Good news from above, Lippy happy that Dave's a player and would bend over for him! Go Team Obama!
