Late Show Runs Cymbalta Depression Ad Parody of Obama

David Letterman is a Barack Obama sycophant (he once fawned over Obama’s “great courage and great intelligence”), but even he couldn’t deny Obama’s poor debate performance.

Thursday’s Late Show featured a clever parody of Lilly’s ad for their anti-depression drug, Cymbalta, a spoof with scenes of Obama during Wednesday’s presidential debate dropped into the real TV ad.

The October 4 Late Show also offered the “Top Ten President Obama Excuses.” #1 was not so unbelievable to really be forwarded by Obama defenders: “It’s Bush’s Fault.”
