Occupy Wall Space

(2) Comments | Posted May 20, 2014 | 2:41 PM

As odd as discovering that Attila the Hun made potpourri, George W. Bush is now a avid portrait artist. I have seen some of his work, and even though it doesn't quite move me, I wish it were the picture he was painting while he was in office, as I...

A Jonathan Winters Tale

(0) Comments | Posted April 16, 2013 | 8:11 PM

If you lived in Santa Barbara for the last 30 years there is a good chance that Jonathan Winters was your friend. He knew no strangers, and as he ambled around the upscale pueblo of Montecito it was very likely that he would grant you a JW encounter to cherish...

An Out of Buddy Experience in Eluding Monk Assassins

(0) Comments | Posted April 5, 2013 | 7:00 AM

During my lengthy tenure as a joke writer for the Tonight Show, I suggested to the host Jay Leno that he take a few days off and visit Yosemite National Park. "I would rather watch a video of a tree," he replied. I on the other hand craved greenery and...

Citizens Now United

Dear Karl Rove,

Good job injecting $300 million into the immediate economy. Don't worry about having nothing to show for it, American's are used to seeing billions of their tax dollars spent on things like stealth bombers that are a complete waste of our money. I am not shocked that...

In It to Spin It

(0) Comments | Posted November 14, 2011 | 8:23 AM

To follow Herman Cain's campaign it seems that he's attempting to be the Muhammad Ali of politics: "Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee." Only in Herman's case his floating moth is heading for a flame while he denies the past of his stinger. Ali once said that boxing...

Birther Babble

(1) Comments | Posted February 5, 2010 | 10:40 AM

In a recent TIme Magazine article on the top ten conspiracy theories, the Birther Movement, which maintains that President Obama is not a natural born citizen of the United States of America, did not make the list, even an honorable mention. Whether or not Jesus kissed Mary Magdalene was still...

Obama speech moved back 30 minutes for Leno

(1) Comments | Posted January 14, 2010 | 3:52 PM

As absurd as that may seem, it is a more likely scenario than Conan's Tonight Show being moved back for the Jay Leno Show. First of all, when you take into account that Jay's monologue lasts approximately 15 minutes, that would mean that Conan's monologue would follow a mere 15...

James Cameron Saves Late Night

(0) Comments | Posted January 13, 2010 | 3:08 PM

It's time for you to step up, James Cameron, and get your team of presti-digital-ators
to create a colorful wacky world where all talk show comedians can live in late night harmony. After years of engaging in special effects, morphing is old school for you and should take minimal...

The Tonight Show with Jay Leno made its debut on May 25, 1992, but even by Christmas that year, NBC was still treating Jay like a late night experiment. Jay was so upset by the network's inability to commit to his contract that he disappeared from the show's holiday party...

Bill O'Reilly admits that President Obama is smarter than George W. Bush on the O'Reilly Factor last night. He also said that the folks at Fox like people who are smart.

Here's the segment:

Letterman Vs. Palin

(21) Comments | Posted June 16, 2009 | 5:00 PM

If you consider the amount of press coverage given to this whole Letterman/Palin debacle you would think that it's the reason Iran is protesting. In a world where media hosts insult half the nation on a daily basis I find it absurd that a veteran comedian is being taken to...

Dick Rush for Sarah

(1) Comments | Posted May 18, 2009 | 11:21 PM

The worst thing the left can do is "misunderestimate" the GOP. While some of them may be busy trying to figure out how to match Biblical passages to their stock portfolio, or soften their image with the younger generation by changing the party's name to something like the GAP, there...

Visiting the Fox Hole

(11) Comments | Posted May 9, 2009 | 1:08 PM

When Bill O'Reilly invited me to appear as a guest on his show to weigh in about their premise that the late night comedians were going easy on Obama my first reaction was to decline and I told the producer that I was not a fan. He replied saying: "We...
