WASHINGTON — David Letterman's "stupid human tricks" and Top 10 lists vaulted into the ranks of cultural acclaim Sunday night as the late-night comedian received this year's Kennedy Center Honors with rock band Led Zeppelin, an actor, a ballerina and a bluesman.

Stars from New York, Hollywood and the music world joined President Barack Obama at the White House on Sunday night to salute the honorees, whose ranks also include actor Dustin Hoffman, Chicago bluesman Buddy Guy and ballerina Natalia Makarova.

The honors are the nation's highest award for those who influenced American culture through the arts. The recipients were later saluted by fellow performers at the Kennedy Center Opera House in a show to be broadcast Dec. 26 on CBS.

Obama drew laughs from his guests when he described the honorees as "some extraordinary people who have no business being on the same stage together."

I guess Letterman gets his award for all the lame Romney jokes he told before the election and all those female employees he nailed behind his wife's back.
Liberals like that kind of stuff. LOL

IMHO, "President Obama" really missed his calling.

In his mind he would love to be a movie star, OR a pro golfer, OR a singer, OR a pro basketball player.

Anything but president!!

You missed your calling as well. You should have been a standup comic working in between the performers at the Gay 90's.

12/03/2012. LED ZEPPELIN was among those receiving the (nations highest award) the Kennedy Center Honors today by President Obama.
Gee, with all of President Obama's security and background check power you would think that Led Zeppelin would be the last rock-n-roll group to be honored by a Christian president. Why you ask?
LED ZEPPELIN’s Zoso (pronounced Sozo) album has a hierglyphic which is a stylized 666. Three of the members of Led Zeppelin are Satanists. The band introduced personal occult symbols on one of their albums. Guitarist Jimmy Page of Zeppelin is a devout follower of Satanist, Aleister Crowley, who proclaimed himself as "The Beast 666." Aleister Crowley is recognized as the master Satanist of the 20th century. In 1971, guitarist Jimmy Page bought Crowley’s Boleskine House on the shore of Loch Ness where Crowley practiced his satanic sex-magick rituals, including human sacrifices. Guitarist Jimmy Page actually performed Crowley magical rituals during their concerts. Their song "Stairway to Heaven" carries the reference "May Queen," which is the name of a hideous poem by Crowley. Page had inscribed in the vinyl of their album Led Zeppelin III, Crowley's famous "Do what thou wilt. So mete it Be.’ Page and Robert Plant claim some of Zeppelins' songs came via occultic "automatic handwriting," including their popular "Stairway to Heaven."
Jimmy Page used to tell fans of a secret pact that all the members but John Paul took to sell their souls to the devil for enormous success. Jimmy Page was also open about his obsession with Crowley and carried his tarot cards, robes, etc… went on to summon demons at his house – house was on the sight of an old church that had been burned to the ground with the congregation inside it.
LED ZEPPELIN’s album ‘Presence’ with an obelisk on the cover was based on Crowley’s teaching on magick and the use of the obelisk.
LED ZEPPELIN’s third album had “do what thou wilt” inscribed on the runoff
LED ZEPPELIN’s – song:‘Houses Of The Holy’–“Let the music be your master. Will you heed the master’s call? Satan and man”
For a very through, extensively documented history of Zeppelin’s occult inspiration read the 648 page book titled, Fallen Angel: The Untold Story of Jimmy Page and Led Zeppelin by Thomas Friend. Zeppelin’s "personal symbols" were etched in occult images. For instance, "Zoso" was Jimmy Page’s personal symbol and according to Stephen Davis in The Hammer of the Gods (p. 253), it is a "stylized 666". To further document Page’s "Zoso" emblem’s connection to Satanist Crowley and the number 666, the following page is from Crowley’s book The Equinox of the Gods (p. 253). Jimmy Page’s fascination with black magic is so intense, he owns and operates The Equinox, one of the largest occult bookstores in England.(Creem Magazine, November, 1979). When Kenneth Anger, himself a Crowley enthusiast, approached Page about writing the music for Lucifer Rising, he found, in Steven Davis’ words,“a priceless collection of Crowley artifacts books, first editions, manuscripts, hats, canes, paintings, even the robes in which Crowley had conducted rituals.”(Hammer of the Gods, p. 168). Later Page had the demonic power associated with the house accentuated by having it redecorated by Charles Pierce, a renown satanist.
Satanist Aleister Crowley named his daughter Lilith and Jimmy Page (Led Zeppelin) named his daughter Scarlet Lilith Page.
I am scared to ask who Barak Hussein Obama will be honoring next year?

Funny, you give Ted Nugent a "pass" even though he's a poopy pedophile, because he like Unfit Mitt... As for your nonsense, it's hyperbole...
