    Glad to hear it. Incidentally, his real name is Paul Morose.

    First, I really enjoyed the Avengers 3 promo. I also think your points about the decline in polling accuracy are, well, accurate.

    as a millennial, my only impression of Letterman is that he was a bitter old leftist who mailed it in for the last decade and slept with all his staff

    It’s actually a good thing to loudly complain about the two-faced questioning done by Snuffleouphagus, er, Stephanopolous, but what’s wrong are the responses given by the interviewee.  Here’s a sampling I’d throw back:

    1.  You’re asking me about influence when you worked for the Clintons for decades?

    2.  Why do I need to brief Democrats, Republicans, or Botswanians on my book?  Can’t they read it for themselves?

    3.  The facts in the book are just that – facts.  I cannot directly correlate the inexplicable coincidences, because, as you might guess, Madame Secretary did not leave emails around that anyone could read, as she was legally required to do as SecState.  So why not ask her why she deleted emails if she has nothing to hide?  And why was she violating the law in hiding her communications?

    He could have had these chambered for the interview with the two-faced Georgie-pie.  Problem with people going up against these lefty clowns is that they bring a knife to a gunfight.  These clowns are not brilliant strategists; clever, intimidating, frightening.  They are people with a severe partisan bias and lust for power, and they think at least half the country are drooling idiots in need of correction.

    Let’s slap them down, easily, every time we see one sticking his chin out – like StepOnMyFaceOLopolous.

    Right, Chris. I wondered myself why he wasn’t prepared for this kind of attack. Should have been able to come out with guns blazing.

    Tell a pollster the truth?  I don’t think so.  I either hang up or lie.  My viewpoints (SoCon FiCon DefCon) are not popular in the current culture.

    I feel exactly the same as Brian Ward about David Letterman.  I loved him in the 80s.  I couldn’t imagine TV without him.  He was pretty thoroughly apolitical at the time.  I actually liked that (and I leaned Democrat at the time).  When Letterman got political he got unfunny.
