Obama on Letterman

“And the number one reason President Obama went on Letterman’s program tonight… it’s the only show not called ‘Fox News’ that he hasn’t been on yet.”

As I write this, there’s still a couple hours before the Letterman show is broadcast on the east coast (the show is taped at about 5 p.m.), but CBS already has a four minute clip up on their website.

As much time as Obama’s spent on his whirlwind media tour in the past few days, I can’t help but think about an old, campy air disaster movie — I think it was Airport ’79, though I’m not positive. The jet is at cruising altitude, and the captain has been in the passenger cabin mingling for an unusually long period of time. After a while, with the captain still talking to passengers, an elderly woman finally taps him on the shoulder and says, “Hey, who’s flying the plane?”

Update: I had to look it up… yep, the movie was Airport ’79, and the elderly woman was played by Martha Raye.
