"This morning, I did something I've never done in my life," Letterman told his audience. "I had to go downtown and testify before a grand jury."
Letterman revealed to the studio audience that he received a package three weeks ago containing a threat to reveal those indiscretions "if Letterman did not pay the individual a large sum of money" -- specified in a later communication as $2 million.
He said that the package contained a letter that said, " I know that you do some terrible terrible things and I can prove that you do these terrible things ... and sure enough what was contained in the package was proof that I do terrible, terrible things."
I haven't watched hat slimeball since.The audience, most likely waiting for the punchline that never came, laughed nervously along as he went on to describe how he called his attorney and then set up a meeting with his blackmailer.
But I've got to ask:
Can you even begin to imagine what the reaction would have been if, for example, Rush Limbaugh had done this?
Letterman treated his women like a harem. How is it that scumbag wasn't fired?
And more importantly, why would ANYONE, let alone a President or First Lady, go on Letterman's show while claiming that the GOP has a war on women?
No one in the GOP has been publicly busted for violating civil rights laws by having sex with his female staff... and gotten away with it.
How quickly his fellow left-wingers forget.
