On last night’s Late Show, David Letterman — born and raised in Indiana — took issue with his home state governor, Mike Pence, for signing into law the Religious Freedom Restoration Act, which will allow businesses the right to discriminate on the basis of sexual orientation. “This is not the Indiana I remember as a kid,” he said. “I lived there for 27 years, and folks were folks, and that’s all there was to it.” Then Pence, he added, “throws a monkey wrench into the works.”

He then devoted a rather insulting Top Ten List to the Governor, counting down the top 10 guys Indiana Mike Pence looks like:

10. The guy at the bar who sends your girlfriend a drink
9. The guy who makes his dog sleep outside
8. The guy whose wife has to tell him he’s “getting a little loud”
7. The guy who greets a room full of guys with “morning, ladies”
6. The guy who has a little too much fun on “audience get acquainted” night
5. The real estate agent whose photo is on a bus stop bench
4. The guy who keeps a baseball bat in his trunk
3. The guy who won three national championships as head coach of the Indiana Hoosiers (Bobby Knight, who is also known for throwing a chair onto the court during a game)
2. The guy who arrives at his high school reunion in a rented Ferrari
1. The guy fishing in a Cialis commercial

That’s about right.
