Top Ten Things Overheard at The Fire David Letterman Rally

Despite days of planning for the rally, numerous RSVP’s, and months of preparing to go after Letterman by the right wing, the Fire Letterman Rally (picture above) didn’t come off as planned. There were estimates of only 15 to 50 people who weren’t satisfied with Letterman’s apology showing up.

The rally might have been a flop but  Letterman still was able to make numerous jokes about the attacks on him during the monologue. The show started with an announcement that “CBS would like to apologize in advance to everyone Dave insults tonight. He means well but but he’s just an idiot.”

The monologue began with instructions for everyone in the audience to come forward when Dave calls their name to pick up their apology. He promised to get through this as quickly as possible so everyone could get to the Fire Dave Rally and he  said his son is telling everyone at school that his father is Conan. While the jokes were primarily directed at himself he did make some jokes about Sarah Palin saying that Palin accepted his apology and “she also accepted a $500 gift certificate from Lens Crafters.” He said he was nervous about the apology to Sarah Palin so to get his confidence up he rehearsed by apologizing to Tina Fey.

Letterman also presented the Top Ten Things Overheard  at The Fire David Letterman Rally:

10. David Who?

9. Well, it was nice of CBS to provide the catering.

8. We should have done this years ago.

7. What idiot turned Broadway into a pedestrian mall?

6. Isn’t there always a crowd demanding Letterman be fired?

5. March around the potholes, people.

4. Can we also get CBS to bring back ‘Gunsmoke’?

3. When does Cheney get here with the waterboarding gear?

2. He should apologize for that hairpiece.

1. Thanks for coming, Regis.

    Pictures are worth . . . .  Sadly the rightists do  look and sound like Hitler and his followers. I think they’ve forgotton what the constitution is all about and the bases upon which the founded.

    I say let them rally around Letterman, It will only give him more exposure than he’s had in years and it will show how idiotic and desperate the GOP has become under Palin’s camp. I think it’s a win/win situation at least for letterman anyway.  LOL And they wonder why even conservatives don’t take them seriously anymore.

    Yes, let us not forget the constitution Leslie. That’s made in the appellet court isn’t it?

    I think it is pretty clear that Leslie was referring to freedom of expression

    Vince says:

    Hey Ron, this top ten list is fantastic. #2 and #5 are my favorite, and the picture wasn’t half bad either. I think it will take a much more serious event than an off color comment about someone that most Americans hate anyways to get him fired. You can post this to our site and link back to your site. We are trying to create a directory for top ten lists where people can find your site.  The coolest feature is you can let other people vote on the rankings of your list.
