Dave has been seen in this space on various occasions. (just try to ignore Paul Schafer though) His usual appearance entails taking shots at a politician or ridiculous TV personality. This time the belt is being taken off the World Wide Pants while Big Oil And Gas is cowering in the corner. Fracking does produce cheap energy. What else does it produce? We don’t know… but we do know it’s resulted in catastrophic damage to the drinking water of many extraction sites. It’s beyond his anger coming to the surface though. Dave is pissed.

When David Letterman came on the scene in the early 80’s everyone knew he had a sharp wit. Everyone also knew that he wore sneakers with a sport jacket and took almost nothing seriously. Fast forward to 2012. David Letterman still flashes his toothy smile and is often irreverent but he’s decidedly matured. This Bill O’Reilly interview never would have happened 30 years ago with a political discussion more suited for his former late night rival Tom Snyder. Dave is still funny though and uses humor to disarm a loud mouthed O’Reilly. Then follows it up with cutting political observations that seem far too intelligent for a late night comic to be making as he lampoons all that is FOX, Rush Limbaugh and Bill O’Reilly.
