38. No, I wouldn't.
I would be calling for a boycott of the Letterman show if he had acted like Bill O-liely and HIS actual sexual harassment case that he paid to hush up.

I haven't defended John Edwards one little bit, not one post, even though I liked his politics.

Not because he had an affair while married.

Not because he had an affair with a campaign worker.

But because he lied about it and tried to cover it up, and used campaign money to do so. Used his friends to do so. And, for all I know, is still lying about it.

But Letterman is an adult, his employees were all adults. There isn't even a whiff that he forced himself on any of them. And, so far as I know, the affairs that he had were when he was single. Not that I would care if he is married. Those are all issues for him, his girlfriends, and his wife.

BTW, since college and his first serious girlfriend... ALL of his relationships have been with staff members, including one with his head comedy writer and another with his now current wife. Where was all the outrage THEN about his dating behavior? It was well known and documented.
