So, Obama has time for Letterman. Remember Letterman's "War on Women?

So, for a married man to sort, stud and require sex with his female staff... how is that NOT part of the "War on Women?"
David Letterman Reveals Extortion Plot and Confesses to Sex With Staffers
( @bymsi) and LINDSAY GOLDWERT - Oct 1, 2009
David Letterman told the audience of his late night talk show that he had sexual relationships with female members of his staff, adding that he'd forked over a bogus $2 million check as part of an extortion plot on the matter.
Letterman, 62, made the confessions to the audience during a taping of "The Late Show" for broadcast Thursday night, according to a statement by Worldwide Pants Inc., Letterman's production company.
"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."
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.

I haven't watched hat slimeball since.

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.

Dude, Bill Maher has come out swinging in support of Rush more than once.

Just a guy said...

Absolutely.

But I can't, for example, see Rush surviving a scandal like that and I damned sure can't feature, say, Romney, appearing on Rush's radio show after such a scandal were it to occur.
