(Newser) – David Letterman has landed some pretty harsh zingers aimed since John McCain skipped out on the Late Show in September. Los Angeles Times reporter Matea Gold put together a Top 10 list of her own; a sampling:

  • "I gave up drinking a while ago, but I started again. And I'm watching the debate last night and here's what I did—I did a shot every time McCain said 'my friends.' So I'm blotto."

  • "Sarah Palin…doesn't know who Barack Obama is. That's interesting. She also doesn't know who Sarkozy is, Gordon Brown, Kim Jong Il, Hugo Chavez, Vladimir Putin, Osama bin Laden, the list goes on and on."
  • "You heard what happened at a rally yesterday. Sarah Palin mistook some of her supporters for hecklers. And you know, confusion happens in all walks of life. For example, a few weeks ago, John McCain mistook her for a legitimate candidate."
