My two big issues today — New York State politics and the Letterman fatwa — just collided spectacularly:
New York State Assembly Minority Leader Brian Kolb, a Republican, is calling on the CEO of CBS to fire David Letterman for crude comments he made about Sarah Palin and her daughter.
This moron became New York State Assembly Minority Leader when Tedisco was kicked to the curb. He’s always being talked up as a candidate for Congress and he’s considered pretty slick by NYS Republican standards. So slick, in fact, that when a friend emailed me “Kolb’s out”, I assumed it meant he Kolb had come out as gay. It turned out he had just decided not to run for Congress.
