David Letterman is demeaning to weasels.Posted: November 26, 2012
But in this case I think it’s justifiable.
As NBC anchor Brian Williams appeared as a guest on “The Late Show” the night after the election, David Letterman charged that Republican political strategist Karl Rove “lied to” and tried to “frighten” the electorate in 2012, referring to the former George W. Bush strategist as a “tubby little weasel.”
And I believe, including that tubby little weasel Karl Rove, I believe they just, they tried to frighten the electorate, they lied to the electorate. Even right up to the last minute, Karl Rove, did you see him? He nearly, I just thought, “Well, the next thing will happen is someone will puncture him and he’ll fly away.” They wanted their people to believe a lie.
But there now, there’s a lot of money left over. Oh, Karl Rove and that 400 million dollars. I believe that the people who gave him the money, I think it was the Koch brothers, they gave him $400 million, and they said, “Here, hey, tubby, go get us a president. We got stuff we want to ramrod through. We want to turn this America, we want America back. Here, what’s it going to take to get America back, Karl? Here, come on. 400 billion – bring back a real America, will you?” So a lot of that money is left over. And, boy, I tell you, the Koch brothers, don’t be surprised if you read that Karl Rove was beaten up by the Koch brothers.
