David Letterman said Monday that presumptive Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney is promising conservatives that if he's elected, "he will put Anderson Cooper back in the closet."
Such was said during the obligatory Romney-bashing portion of Letterman's Late Show monologue on CBS (video follows with transcribed highlights and commentary, file photo):
As Late Show watchers know all too well, somewhere in Letterman's monologue will be attacks on the former Massachusetts governor.
"Mitt Romney vacationing in Lake Winnipesaukee," teased the host. "His money is vacationing in the Cayman Islands."
This from a guy whose net worth is almost twice as much as Romney's. But that doesn't stop him from making rich jokes about anybody.
Seconds later, it got worse.
"Mitt is now promising conservatives," Letterman said, "that if he is elected – because conservatives don’t think Mitt’s conservative enough – he’s promising conservatives if Mitt is elected, he will put Anderson Cooper back in the closet."
Conservative homophobe jokes.
They never get old with liberal media members.
