David Letterman Is Generous

Oh snap! Letterman totally kept it real when Bill O'Reilly appeared on his show last night. After ripping on the Iraq war rather bluntly, O'Reilly was visibly put-off by Dave's candor. Then, Dave reached deep inside himself to find the little Wanda Sykes that lives deep inside each and every one of us, and told Bill O'Reilly like it is:

BO: If you want to question that, and then revamp an intelligence agency that's obviously flawed, the CIA, okay. But remember, MI-6 in Britain said the same thing. Putin's people in Russia said the same thing, and so did Mubarak's intelligence agency in Egypt.

DL: Well then that makes it all right?

BO: No it doesn't make it right.

DL: I'm not smart enough to debate you point to point on this, but I have the feeling, I have the feeling about 60 percent of what you say is crap. But I don't know that for a fact.

Paul Shafer: 60 percent.

DL: 60 percent. I'm just spit-balling here.

Only 60%, eh? Nice guy, that Letterman. If the transcript leaves you thirsting for the video of the talking heads,
watch it here.
