I think there have been way more orgasms here in response to the news than there ever was at CBS...

Are you high? Sexual harassment is only a big deal to libs if a Republican does it. That’s been the rule since at least 1998.

“...some FReepers were extolling Dave’s ‘solid Midwestern values’”

I believe Letterman was raised with, and still remembers, solid Midwestern values...he just violates them so dramatically and so often that he has dealt with this guilt by denigrating people who uphold those values. I think Letterman hates Sarah Palin — and he does seem to hate her — because she had a baby he would have paid to abort. Letterman looks at Plain and knows she is true to values he has jettisoned.

Why should Letterman have to be replaced? His show is so non-essential.

He sure was. I loved when he opened his show with, “The ego has landed!” LOL! Great stuff.

Maybe the question should be “Will Obama make any more campaign appearances on Letterman?”

Dave’s not going anywhere. Cash settlement for a couple of sexual harrasment lawsuits and it’s all behind him.

Fired for what? Get out of what? You are aware that Roman Polanski hasn’t lacked for work right?

Everyone already knows what David Letterman is. Most of us don’t watch him. Enough do to keep him employed.

The audience laughed all the way through is mea culpa and that is all that matters.

Isn’t that acceptable and commendable among the elites? It’s known as same-sex sex.

Hahahaha, I hadn’t thought about that, has the POTUS noticed that after he made a complete farce of the office of President of the United States by appearing on a stupid late night not funny comedy show the host of the show is an admitted user/abuser of his position of authority? Oh, I just realized they are the same sort, isn’t it amazing how filth finds filth?

What in the world makes you think he’s going to be fired??

Everything I’ve seen on the boobtube about his boinking interns is making him out as the victim and the sex part is described as a private matter. His ratings have never been higher.

Dream on if you think this will do anything but help him get more of an audience

“Michael Moore!”

Speaking of his lardness, he was on Conan Thursday night and mentioned that he and Conan have the same agent. A guy with the last name of Emanuel, Rahms’ other brother. This explains a lot.

He’s not going anywhere. Look at how Hollyweird is rallying around Polanski. They’ll do the same for Dave. And his ratings will go up.

Go figure.

I’m sure ‘ol Dave will be nominated and probably win an Emmy for this performance. Hollyweird awards and worships perverts.

Re: “He won’t be fired. He’ll be more popular now than ever. Our society has gone down the toilet.”

***************

He may not be fired but any boost he gets from this will be very temporary. Letterman has not been funny for a LONG time and is just sickening and bitter now.

I suspect we will shortly hear he is resigning and yes, it may well be his own choice to do so. I hope his ‘wife’ is not amused and makes his life a living hell.

If CBS had any sense (they don't), they'd go with the flow and put in Sarah in his place -- and take the shackles off of her.

Who knows, they might even catch Rush in the ratings.

Cheers!

Since I posted this thread I'll make my pick. My best bet: Kathy Griffin

Gads! Can't stand her either!

CNN is painting Letterman as the “victim” and the alleged “blackmailer” as a psycho, deadbeat, depressive. Oy veh.

I’ll stick to my prediction, maybe two weeks, maybe less, and he’s gone. Kathy Griffin, if NBC can get her, would make people forget Letterman in one night. Davie, out you go.

You think David Letterman is going to be fired for sleeping around with subordinates and that they would hire Kathy Griffin, one of the biggest sleaze bags of all time?

No way.

I really doubt if Dave will be fired. His ratings are up. Seems that a lot of folks just aren’t bothered by that. Letterman will probably get an increase in his ratings. His show has been tired for a long time with hack burnouts for writers. Dave is a bitter old man who is a product of the 60’s. Just old now. He lost his edge years ago. Some people mistake his bitter sarcastic resentment as humor.

Watching Letterman is like listening to some one repeat themselves over and over and over again. It is tiresome. It does seem to work with adolescent mentalities. Look at what a wreck Britney Spears is. They have made her a diva. Look at what a devious bastard little “o” is. They have made him the Messiah.

As the great humorist Ron White puts it, “You can’t fix stupid!”.

If you teach people to think for themselves, they will be never be dependent upon you for their thoughts.

Can you guess why little “o” got elected?

How anyone could willingly have sex with that man. [Shudders] He IS creepy.

My vote for replacement is Craig Ferguson- move him up and let someone else take a later time slot. [Don’t know if he’s CBS, though]

“Oh please ....porking a willing employee isn’t a big deal.”

-

Shouldn’t you have a sarcasm tag on that?

Of course it’s a big deal. Look up the word employee.

Boffing employees is pretty much sexual assault under color of organizational structure.

There is NOTHING ok about what he did.

...Seems like three strikes to the progressive party in one day. No public option, no olympics in the windy city, and Letterman’s monologues getting the same reaction as a dog that’s been showed a magic trick...

...Best part is Obama wiggling like a worm on a hot sidewalk...

...My advise to BHO, resign. Take Dave’s place, i don’t think it’s safe to go home. If you go back to to Chitcago, stay away from the railroad tracks...

I think you just put it very well there.
BTW, how is Herbert Berghof?
I just had to go look up whether it was really you,
but UH died about 5 years ago.I didn’t want to ask
about Herbert because it would sound snarky, and he is surely no longer with us.
(I was once intending to go to HB Studio.)

These clowns who are screaming sexual harrassment are missing the fact that the staffers he was screwing with need to complain. They haven’t and that’s the end of it.

There you go, using logic again.
