Dave Letterman has been doing something very good and informative all week... [View all]

He has a new segment called "Stooge of the Night" where he's shown pics of senators (Inhofe, Flake, Cruz, and McConnell so far, one each night, Mon.-Thurs.) and left their pics up while he explained that each one voted against the stronger background checks bill for gun sales and went on to explain each one's "reason" for voting against it.

For example, after he called Jeff Flake the "Stooge of the Night" and put up his pic w/ his name, party, and state, he went on to explain that Flake voted against the bill after writing a letter back to a victim's mother telling her he agrees with her that they have to strengthen background checks. For Mitch McConnell, he told us how much money he has taken from the gun lobbies. And he says, "Let's keep his picture up there a little longer," and the announcer repeats the name and again calls him the "Stooge of the Night."
