Last Thursday, David Letterman announced that someone on the CBS staff was trying to blackmail him for $2 million in exchange for not revealing that he had at one time been sexually involved with some of his staff members. Naturally, Dave said "SCREW YOU" and confessed the whole thing on the Late Show. Last night he apologized for his behavior, to his staff, to his wife, and of course Sarah Palin. If you ever get in trouble, folks, here's how to issue a mea culpa.

Now that he's apologized, let's recall him. And when that recall fails, let's recall him again.
