If Anita Perry is to be believed, Rick Perry was instructed by an omnipotent (yet strangely politically tone-deaf) God to run for president. Sounds far-fetched, but wouldn't this be just like God? Tell a Texas governor he was going to be President of the United States just to embarrass him and teach a lesson in humility…
Rick Perry's self-deprecation tour, which started at dawn Thursday with appearances on most of the planet's morning shows, culminated with a brief visit to The Late Show with David Letterman.
Trying to undo the damage he inflicted on himself on the debate stage Wednesday when he could not remember the third of three federal agencies he has pledged to eliminate, Perry walked out, saluted the audience and presented "Rick Perry's Top Ten excuses" for his gaffe.
Bad enough that Perry has to atone for his gaffe by castigating himself on television. He's also being forced to witness the Newtening of America, a process in which Herman Cain's sexual harassment scandal and Perry's incompetence forces the baton of moral and electoral leadership to be passed to the only Speaker of the House to be ever disciplined for an ethics violation.
No one, not even Rick Perry, deserves to see Newt Gingrich climb to a 2nd-place 15% showing in the polls.

Tina Fey was talking with David Letterman last night and, oddly enough, the subject of Sarah Palin came up…
In fairness to Fox News, I believe that former governors — the same as former presidents — are often, as a courtesy, referred to by their old job title. Though, to be honest, I'm not sure what the etiquette calls for when you quit halfway through your term to go make a billion dollars.

From The CC Insider…
Last week Jon Stewart was on Late Show with David Letterman for a delightful chat about Earth (The Book) and The Rally to Restore Sanity. Then, last night Stephen Colbert came on to discuss The March to Keep Fear Alive and his recent testimony before a Congressional sub-committee. Equally delightful! Some days it feels like the fun will never end, and we're all going to live forever!
The Colbert Report airs Monday through Thursday at 11:30pm / 10:30c.

Hmmmm… This is weird. Why is David Letterman interviewing your friend's mom? Don't get me wrong; your friend's mom has always seemed like a really nice person, But, um, why is she on the The Late Show with David Letterman?
It appears as though they're doing a lot of talking about tea. Tea parties, really. Well, one particular tea party specifically.
Oh, wait. Oh. Oh oh oh oh oh. This isn't just any your friend's mom. This is this your friend's mom.
I like your friend's mom better when she's mispronouncing "Chamillionaire" and calling your friend's mom's son "Baby Doll" in front of everyone.
Your friend's mom's interview continues after the jump, and you should think about buying some new shoes that will make people take you more seriously, because you guys are kids anymore, you know…
