Deval Patrick emboldened the Democratic base during his rousing Tuesday-night convention speech by proclaiming that it was time for the party to "grow a backbone." Judging by Lewis Black's comments on tonight's upcoming "Joy Behar: Say Anything!" on Current TV, he agrees.
In this exclusive clip from the interview, Black tears into the Dems for being all talk with little action, and the incessant summertime saber-rattling of both parties. "I've listened to this litany all my life, just do the stuff you gotta do... You have nine months to talk to us, otherwise shut up during the summer, unless you've got a barbecue recipe..."
Black also went on to credit the Dems lack of action as the reason joking about them isn't a lot of fun: "Democrats are like a big tortoise that's on its back & can't get up, you can't make jokes about that."
Watch the clip above and catch the full interview on "Joy Behar: Say Anything!" tonight at 6:00 pm EST on Current TV.
