Last night on his television show, David Letterman made history by confessing in the public square he had not been faithful to his son or the mother of his son.
Should we pity a man who led a life that can be blackmailed?
Can you be blackmailed if there is no guilty evidence against you?
Instead of laughing at David Letterman and respecting his fresh wish to “protect” the women he was sleeping with at work — we should instead damn his wicked ways and pity his child even as he loathes his new wife.
David Letterman deserves none of our sympathy and even less of our shared good graces.
David Letterman — in his silly and tantalizing confession for Nielsen ratings only — left no room for redemption or even a truthful or memeingful modicum of regret.
We now plainly see him as the perpetual jester deceiver who has mocked for money and fame the very sort of behavior he admitted to committing last night — and there’s nothing funny or entertaining about a man who begs for mercy while providing none.
