Letterman Rips Rendell In Monday's Monologue

Letterman Rips Rendell In Monday's Monologue

Gov. Rendell raised a few eyebrows last week when he told the RadioPA Network that former New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer was the "50th pick out of 50 governors" he would have expected to be ensnared in a sex scandal with a prostitute.  The question on the minds of many wags:  Rendell is a governor so where would he land on his list?

Then former New Jersey Gov. Jim McGreevey, who also resigned in a sex scandal, reignited interest in his story by confirming claims by his former driver that they had engaged in threesomes with McGreevey's former wife.

It all grew too heavy a burden to bear for Late Night host David Letterman, who let this fly on Monday.
