Very smart move on Letterman's part. Now that he once again has the gritty taste of Leno's dust in his mouth, doing things like showing Red State, blue collar America a little respect is something he'll need to do more of in order to remain competitive. His bitter partisanship and savage attacks on Sarah Palin and her family cost him dearly in the audience goodwill department. Maybe this clip is a sign that he's finally figured out that there just aren't enough elitists in this country to bring him back to #1.
[Part 2 and 3 of the interview are below.]
His guest, Pam Stout, is the kind of Tea Party representative the left is desperately hoping to smear as ignorant, frothing-at-the mouth racists. But as you can see she's just like you and I: an everyday American who loves her country, knows something's terribly wrong and, though never politically active before, has taken the time to become an activist, but only after educating herself on the issues.
Pam Stouts are springing from everywhere, and her ability to intelligently answer Letterman's tough but fair questions is what most terrifies the Obamabots and their corrupt supporters in the media. Our bullshit detectors have always been there but now we're moving beyond instinct and starting to teach ourselves the truth behind the media spin. These past few years, we haven't been as vigilant as we should have. But now that America's awake, the left's in for a real fight because we are fundamentally too good of a people to simply stand by as they decimate our country -- even if the price is being called "racists."
Ms. Stout is why Obama and his media minions can't get away with saying that Americans simply don't understand the latest scheme to take over yet another slice of the private sector for "our own good." Their problem is that we do understand and that's why we're worried, awake, aware, educated and vocal.
As we can see from David Letterman, popular culture is discovering they need the Pam Stouts of the world, as well. We're paying attention to everything
now. Ask the makers of these anti-American films. They're the only coastal elites licking more wounds than CNN.
Don't take the bait, Ms. Stout! The reason Letterman says the Tea Partiers need a "charismatic leader" is so that he and his kind will have a single target with which to take the whole movement down with. Right now they're forced to attack the "American People," and it's costing them dearly.
Let's leave it that way.
