Kyra Phillips‘ top ten excuses, from tonight’s Late Show with David Letterman:
10. Still haven’t mastered complicated on/off switch.
9. Larry King told me he does this all the time.
8. How was I supposed to know we had a reporter embedded in the bathroom.
7. I honestly never knew this sort of thing was frowned upon.
6. I couldn’t resist a chance to win $10,000 on “America’s Funniest Home Videos.”
5. I was set up by those bastards at Fox News.
4. Like you’ve never gone to the bathroom and had it broadcast on national television.
3. I just wanted that hunky Lou Dobbs to notice me.
2. Okay, so I was drunk and I couldn’t think straight.
1. You have to admit, it made the speech a lot more interesting.
