DAVID LETTERMAN: I’m ignorant in the world of politics, and I don’t know what the people that believe, and the ones who do believe, who really believe that he wasn’t born in this country, that they claim that he hasn’t produced a birth certificate. Do you have any understanding of why we’ve selected this to worry about? I mean, I believe he was born in the United States.
ROBERT KLEIN: I’m not worried about it. It’s just, you know, dirty pool, and, you know, what’s his name, Rush Limbaugh, who believes so much in the sanctity of marriage he’s done it four times now, you know, but, you know, not if he, doesn’t approve of marriage if both the husband and wife are circumcised, you know, that’s out of the questions. I think a lot of that came from him and, you know, he was in the hospital couple of months ago in Hawaii. Turned out to be nothing. See? You lose some, you win some. But anyway.
