Someone must know what the context of that clips was. It can't be as bad as that bit makes it seem.

Unfortunatly the truth is benign, the real quote is

"The ideology of the enemy says, a few people will choose, and if you don't like what we tell you to believe in, we'll kill you, or -- or treat you harshly."

It was still funny though.

Thanks. This is one of the funniest bits on Letterman at the moment.

I love this segment.

That's a pretty dishonest quoting, even for Letterman.

Still funny though.

I've always said that late-night comediennes should have more journalistic integrity. This proves my point.

Enough of this disrespect for our leader. Let's convert the comedians to Christianity or kill them!

As far as the original quote goes though, taking away the killing, isn't that what a large chunk of the people who voted for Bush want to do here?

It's funny, even though taken completely out of context. Anyone who believes this is true context is a douchebag and should be shot. With that said, very funny.

Love that segment.

even with the proper context, it's kinda scary to see dubya smiling so broadly when he says that.

...or maybe i'm just a scairdy cat.

Dang, I'd heard Letterman had some surgery but I had no idea!

Change "we'll kill ya" for "We'll question your patriotism, call you un-American, disenfranchise you, listen to yor phone calls and intern you without trial or charge" and the context would work just fine as-is.

I was expecting footage of the time Reagan was accepting the gift of a Lippenstaner stallion and the horse was dragging it's junk on the ground.

Standing up right.
