"something smells"

Since I am as old as John McCain nowdays, I fall asleep in my chair by 1015. So I missed Letterman. But here's is a wonderful clip of Letterman letting loose. Let's shred this fake politics b.s. once and for all. No law in the arena!

**Edit: Also run, don't walk, over to Glenn Greenwald on the subject of Sarah Palin's interviews with Katie Couric. Glenn's keyboard isn't a poison pen, it's tipped with acid and he's been on a run of very intense writing lately:
One of two things is absolutely clear at this point: she is either (a) completely ignorant about the most basic political issues -- a vacant, ill-informed, incurious know-nothing, or (b) aggressively concealing her actual beliefs about these matters because she's petrified of deviating from the simple-minded campaign talking points she's been fed and/or because her actual beliefs are so politically unpalatable, even when taking into account the right-wing extremism that is permitted, even rewarded, in our mainstream. I'm not really sure which is worse, but it doesn't really matter, because with 40 days left before the election, both options are heinous.
