Letterman: ‘I’ve Always Enjoyed Lesbians’

CBS Late Show host David Letterman made a comment Wednesday that would almost certainly evoke criticism from the LGBT community if he weren’t a liberal.

In a discussion with morning talk show host and former football player Michael Strahan about the recent self-outing of NBA player Jason Collins, Letterman said, “I fancy myself a big supporter of the gay community, and I've always enjoyed lesbians” (video follows with commentary):

Imagine for a moment a conservative making a joke like that. The LGBT community would be up in arms demanding an apology.

But a liberal comedian?

Move along. Nothing to see here.

Makes you wonder what Letterman’s friend Rachel Maddow would think about this joke.
