After apologizing to Sarah Palin Monday, late night funnyman David Letterman was back to his old self Tuesday, skewering a sparsely-attended "Fire David Letterman" (CNN reported only 15 protesters) outside his studio in his daily Top 10 countdown.
"I want to get through this quickly so you can get to the 'Fire Dave' rally," the Indiana native said to kick off the monologue.
Among the most entertaining excerpts from the "Top 10 Things Overheard at the Fire David Letterman Rally" were: "When does Cheney arrive with the water-boarding gear?"; "Well, it was nice of CBS to provide the catering!" and "Isn't there always a crowd demanding Letterman be fired?"
Even Palin wasn't immune to Dave's ribbing -- the comedian boasted to his audience that she accepted his apology, slyly following up with the line: "She's also accepted a $500 gift certificate from Lenscrafters."
