You Reap What You Sow

A * / Associated Press news article* reports that politicians involved in sex scandals that have been the butt of many of David Letterman’s jokes, have actually been pretty sympathetic towards Letterman in light of his own scandal.

The story titled “LETTERMAN THREW SPITBALLS FROM HIS OWN GLASS HOUSE” quotes former Florida Rep. Mark Foley; "I feel sorry for Dave—I take no glee."

South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford said; "Both my thoughts and my prayers are with him," Sanford went on to say; "There's a lot more introspection and soul-searching on the way down than there is on the way up. He can be a better person for it."

Of course it wasn’t right what Foley, Sanford, and Eliot Spitzer, former governor of New York, who was involved in an investigation into a prostitution operation, did.

And yes, they set themselves up for ridicule, and no, I don’t have any sympathy for them. But at least they fessed up to what they have done, and admitted it was wrong. Letterman is still trying to make himself out to be a victim even though it’s his own debauchery he has to account for.

But letterman is now and has always been a hypocritical jackass; and I have never found his “jokes” funny.
