Letterman: 'Don't Be Surprised If You Read Karl Rove Was Beaten Up By the Koch Brothers'
David Letterman took a swipe at Karl Rove and the Koch brothers Thursday.
During his opening monogue on the CBS Late Show, the host said, "Don't be surprised if you read that Karl Rove was beaten up by the Koch brothers" (video follows with transcript):
DAVID LETTERMAN: But there now, there's a lot of money left over. Oh, Karl Rove and that 400 million dollars. I believe that the people who gave him the money, I think it was the Koch brothers, they gave him $400 million, and they said, “Here, hey, tubby, go get us a president. We got stuff we want to ramrod through. We want to turn this America, we want America back. Here, what’s it going to take to get America back, Karl? Here, come on. 400 billion - bring back a real America, will you?” So a lot of that money is left over. And, boy, I tell you, the Koch brothers, don't be surprised if you read that Karl Rove was beaten up by the Koch brothers.
