Dave showed his new book.

He showed up in jeans and a jacket and Dave poked fun.

Dave pointed out that Al Franken is his “mentor”.

Al Franken told him Letterman isn’t funny....don’t be funnier than Letterman.

Dave asking what “Republican” means.

Rand says “living within your means”.

Dave asks about Tea Party. Rand says you have to go city by city.

Rand says Tea Partiers tell him that if they vote to bankrupt, Tea party will vote out.

Dave asks about “Democrats”

Rand says, “Democrats ALWAYS spending too much money...Republicans only sometimes spending too much money.”

Dave asks if we’re hurting the middle class?

Rand says no ... private sector does everything better... like late night comedy.

Dave saying public sector holds all middle class jobs......we’re hurting.

Rand says no ... we leave much to the private sector...we should have only the public sector doing what it absolutely NEEDS to do.

Rand says public sector inefficient.

They get different signals....the public sector isn’t accountable.

Dave suggesting taxing the rich ... small clapping from audience.

Rand explaining that the rich pay the taxes.

Dave saying something wrong with Rand’s numbers...

*clapping*

Dave suggests raising taxes in Wisconsin to save public jobs.

Rand says average teacher makes 89,000

Dave saying they should make TWICE THAT.

Dave lamenting public schools as failing.

Rand says, “we pay...we pay...and still schools fail.”

Rand says controlling education from Washington is wrong.

Dave says...”let’s throw money at education if anything”

Letterman is back ...

Paul is pluggin’ his new book, “The Tea Party Goes To Washington” ...

Stupid chit-chat right now ...

Paul tells Letterman he stands for fiscal responsibility - living within our means ...

Paul sez DEMs ALWAYS spend too much money - points out the $13T debt ...

He sez he favors expanding the private sector - it does a better job growing the economy than the government ...

Letterman keeps asking why Paul doesn’t want to soak the rich - prevents Paul from getting his point across ...

The End ...

Interview done...

THAT QUICK.

Dave said, “I think this guy’s wrong about things...I just can’t say why....”

Dave was an IDIOT.

Don’t let those pesky facts stop you from displaying your ignorance Dave.

How many times did Letterman call himself dumb/stupid? Then claimed he new Rand was wrong but couldn’t explain why... Letterman is classless and is why I stopped watching him years ago....

I just saw the interview, Dave was an idiot but not rude.
Paul did a good job with facts and calm exterior, but he looked uncomfortable being there.

Last refuge of a liberal when presented with facts.

So one of the left’s pet RINOs is being brought out to be displayed by his handler Letterman.

Dave was talking about Rand’s “mentor”.

I guess maybe he was assigned to Franken.

Rand said someone told him something like, “You’ll spend awhile wandering around the hallowed halls thinking, ‘How did I get here?’ Then eventually you’ll start looking at colleagues and thinking, ‘How did THEY get here?’”

Did you get the feeling that the people clapping were Dave’s interns?

Why go on Letterman? Does anyone still watch it? He’s a typical left wing idiot that is obsessed with his genitals.

Besides, we had massive thunderstorms come through and the local stations are milking it even though most of their older audience went to bed hours ago.

Still on the weather so no regular programming.

I wish, for once, some Republican would tell a RICH idiot like Letterman that they are right - let’s soak the rich by starting with a 95% income tax and wealth tax rate on left wing entertainers that make millions a year to start.

I bet that would shut him up.

Reminds me of 2000 when the left knew Gore was going to lose. They actually called into our Tennessee talk shows to support Gore. Rob Reiner (yes, Meathead was a stereotype) called into the Phil Valentine show and whined aobut “the rich not paying their fair share” and “tax cuts” and Phil used his good old line “do you itemize?”.

Reiner, of course, said “yes” and Phil asked, “why? Why don’t you just pay on your gross or just write a check for more to the IRS since you are rich?”

And, as usual, the retarded idiot started screaming like his mommy wouldn’t let him have a candy bar at the store with crap like “I pay a lot (yes, a the low rates you complain about)” and the tried and true line of “do you what in Hollywood do for our community”....blah, blah, blah.

It’s like arguing with paint drying. Oh wait, paint drying is more intelligent.

Yuck. I'm so glad I didn't see that.

David Letterman is such an idiot and welcomes any opportunity to display just how much of an idiot he is.

You can pay more than your tax burden.

I would end any argument with these people that scream for more spending; that if you feel it is necessary, why don’t you send in more funds to the federal gov’t that you preach can spend money more wisely than you.

I would do one better. I would tell a RICH idiot like Letterman, that, in order to be really fair, that the government should strip rich entertainers and sports figures of ALL their income except for the average American salary. Then the rich would really be paying their fair share.
