Folks, This is Rich! Sad but Rich!

The parallels between this story and what Obama and Company are doing to the American people are so obvious I'll not even write them down.
You be the judge.
This share-the-wealth story exposes the flaws in human nature that inevitably surface when people feel entitled to something for nothing. What a perfect parable for us to watch as we witness the Obamazation of a country built by hard working hands, willing to lend a hand in true need, but never expecting a government hand-out.

It will be interesting to see if other video from inside the store surfaces. This account and others tell how the store was trashed and looted while some demanded they be allowed to keep what they piled in their carts even after learning that the "source" of the give-away was actually flat broke and had no means to fulfill such promises.

It's Time for a Dear John Letter, Man

In case you missed this last Friday night, Dave Letterman had his audience in stitches as he disclosed his multiple sexual harassment exploits with various young female staffers on his show.

Tonight he is going to apologize to his wife (who is the true victim of his "It's good to be the King" mentality, but I hardly believe she was the last to know what he is like with subordinate babes). I'm sure that moment will be heart-felt and aired often in days to come, but other than those lines, reportedly, he just can't help but play his plight for laughs. For his entire career glib irreverence in hopes of a laugh has been his best shot. Sad when that's all you've got. Live by the sword; die by the sword. Play it for all it's worth while you still have fans who think it's funny.

Don't get me wrong. I'm against blackmail (if that's what it was that exposed him); and I think Letterman's truth telling is strategically prudent for a man in his position, but public confession and man-on-the-street forgiveness is not a magic wand in criminal matters, and this is still very likely to turn into sexual harassment case whether he's a celebrity or not. He has to hope for 100% tight-lipped loyalty from all those girls that notched his belt. (Or should we say un-notched it?)

I agree with Andrea Peyser of the New York Post who says dump depraved Dave now! I wonder what the top ten reasons will be for his final exit off that little stage?

One thing is for sure, there will be a movie made of it (there always is), and we haven't heard or seen the half of what his joke writers are capitalizing on for the moment.

Update: next morning video clips found here.
