Aaron Barnhart on the Letterman-Palin Imbroglio

Aaron Barnhart on Dave’s show last night:

The one thing I hadn’t counted on was joke after joke after joke in the monologue about how much people hated him — Letterman compared himself to Bernie Madoff, Mrs. Bernie Madoff AND the president of Iran. Carson used to do that, too, especially when he was going through a divorce … but I don’t think he ever told six divorce jokes in a row.

I watched last night, and the monologue did feel Carson-esque. I couldn’t put my finger on why, but I think Barnhart’s nailed it.
