At one time, many years ago David Letterman had a funny parody of a talk show  It was called Late Night with David Letterman.  He did crazy stunts such as a jump on a wall in a Velcro suit, the Monkey-Cam and ‘Stupid Pet Tricks’.

Eventually, he went to CBS after the powers at NBC decided that Jay Leno should get The Tonight Show.  Over the years, Jay has crushed Dave in the ratings while Dave has crushed Jay in getting money from the network.

Some of Dave’s jokes have been:

“Iraq’s elite Republican Guard is doing so badly they’re changing their name to the Democratic Guard.”

“Congratulations are in order for Woody Allen–he and Soon Yi have a brand new baby daughter. It’s all part of Woody’s plan to grow his own wives.”

“Here’s a little known fact–Arnold is the first body builder to run for governor since Janet Reno.”

There’s no business like show business, but there are several businesses like accounting.”

I know exactly the last time I watched an episode of Dave.  The night Bill Hicks was supposed to be on the show and his segment was cut by this coward of a television talk-show host.  Bill was brilliant and cutting-edge, something Dave has forgotten how to be so many years ago.

Lately, Dave has been more known for all of his public apologizing to his wife.  Though who can blame the guy for seducing his interns?  Well, no one except the National Organization of Women, CBS Practices and Standards, and Kathy Lee Gifford

This former brilliant comic is now a bitter old man who hasn’t had a good idea in at least 20 years while a new generation of talk-show hosts have taken over the airwaves.  He needs go give it up and fade away.
