That Big Wind you heard the other night was David Letterman's deflated ego when President Obama congratulated him on winning an Emmy. The problem was that Letterman didn't win an emmy; the award went to much more talented Jon Stewart. Letterman's wedgie humor has its anal-rententive fans but we're all not inclined to sit around in circle jerk formation to stare at out navel.
Obama obviously felt that Letterman was too unimportant for him to read, even in a prepared brief. Poor Letterman, all that persnickety sucking up gone to waste.
