we love dave!

dave? dave who? dave barry?... no (altho' we love him too)... no, today we're loving david...letterman. and when i say "we", i really mean mommy, because, of course, i'm a puppy, and am, therefore, above certain kinds of silliness and/or bullshit.

okay, so mommy was laughing out loud today, while reading a blurb on CNN.com regarding late night with david letterman (a show my people rarely stay up to watch these days, but one they both enjoy greatly). the article i refer to involved, specifically, the recent appearance of blow-it-out-his-ass news channel bullshit spew-meister, bill o'reilly. here's a brief exerpt:

" The Fox News Channel personality's confrontation with David Letterman Tuesday night made for some gripping television. The cranky "Late Show" host told his guest: "I have the feeling about 60 percent of what you say is crap." "

yee-owza! you go, dave! giving this guy his comeuppance in front of your impressive audience is an excellent start to, hopefully, bringing idiots like o'reilly down. next up... sean hannity (oh please oh please oh please)... i suppose i should mention that the article went on to talk about an msnbc guy named keith olberman, who is rapidly gaining favor with mom, as well, altho' her loyalties remain with CNN (for reasons i'll not go into at this particular juncture), but right now i want to concentrate on dave. so, here's another snippet from CNN.com describing some of the actual letterman/o'reilly exchange:

" The interview began poorly -- with an uncomfortable silence after O'Reilly said he had "a nice winter solstice" -- and went downhill. Letterman disagreed with O'Reilly's contention that de-emphasizing religion during the Christmas season was an example of political correctness eroding tradition. "I don't think this is an actual threat," Letterman said. "I think that this is something that happened here and it happened there. And so people like you are trying to make us think that it's a threat."

They jousted over peace activist Cindy Sheehan, who O'Reilly said has referred to Iraqi insurgents as freedom fighters. "It is a vitally important time in American history," O'Reilly said. "And we should all take it very seriously, and be very careful with what we say."

Responded Letterman: "Well, and you should be very careful with what you say also."

Letterman said he was "very concerned about people like yourself who don't have nothing but endless sympathy for a woman like Cindy Sheehan." That's where he issued his content analysis of "The O'Reilly Factor," although he admitted he didn't watch it. "
i should point out that the article is a bit longer... just more stuff about how o'reilly thrives on confrontation and how he didn't care a bit about what dave had to say, blah blah blah, but really, if you're so damn interested in the stupid article, click on to 4CNN.com3and read it for yourself! otherwise, let me finish what i was saying...
now where was i? oh yeah. so, according to spokespeople for fox so-called-news channel, o'reilly was "set-up"... like a guy invited to someone's house only to find out he's been invited by...get this...serial killer john wayne gacy. what?!?!? mom re-read the article several times then located a transcript of the actual interview... she says that not once did letterman dress up like a clown, offer drugs and/or booze to o'reilly or try to have sex with him. nor, she says, did letterman attempt to bury o'reilly in the crawlspace under the ed sullivan theater. but maybe mom missed something. she's been a little distracted, what with bobo's ear, and all...
