One thing I've noticed is that politicians are easy targets for great humor. Mark and I were cackling last week over David Letterman's commentary on the Vice Presidential debate.
I think it's the peanut gallery mentality of laughing at those in power. I feel guilty laughing at regular people. With politicians, though, I have no problems.
I love Letterman. He's a New York institution. New Yorkers tend to prefer Letterman's humor to that of Jay Leno on the West Coast. I think Jay is much too polite for our taste.
We're lucky to witness Letterman's snarky comments nightly. And he's got so much material to work with.
