Talk-Show Heaven


It’s hard to resist the incisive interviews on Dr. Drew’s show.  Here is an excerpt from Dr. Drew’s illuminating chat this week with Honey Boo Boo (above):


          Honey Boo Boo:  I don’t burp.

It’s painful listening to starlets on late-night talk shows.  The host has to do all of the work while some Callie Cutethighs giggles and adjusts her short skirt.  I experienced a preview of death the other night, watching a bubble-head named Hana Mae Lee (below) on Craig Ferguson’s show.

“I worked in network news, and I know that promotions were given to people based upon their political leanings and based upon how they conducted themselves in the politically correct atmosphere in which they work.”  — Bill O’Reilly, decrying network personnel decisions.
