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.

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.
