Comedy tonight

Thursday, Dec 11, 2008

* If you didn’t see The Daily Show last night, you should defintely watch now…

They missed the point.

“How’s Tony doing? [Scene cut] The Iraqi guy? You gonna talk to him today about the other stuff?”

“Tony”? He’s doing an imaginary deal involving Rezko on camera? And the Iraqi guy? Auchi, perhaps? [Rewritten on advice from Larry.]

* Here’s more from last night…

* Letterman’s Rod Blagojevich news recap…

* Not really comedy, but I loved the introduction: A super, red-hot, crazy unbelievable freakshow of a scandal…

* Now, this is comedy gold, but it’s rated “R,” so don’t click it if you’re easily offended: If They IM’d: Rod Blagojevich and his cronies

* Oof.

* And some funny shirts.

    Hey Rich, can we start the “when the movie is made, who will play _______” game???
    Is it too soon to start this game?
    Come on, it’s just a matter of time before the book, then movie is made.

    Here is a start:

    Rod — Charlie Sheen
    First Lady — Jessica Biel
    L. Peters — Whoopi
    B. Greenlee — Dean Cain
    J. Wyma — Michael J. Fox
    L. Monk — Jon Cryer (2 and half men)

    (btw — Rich, I completely agree with you that folks are completely overblowing the patty potty-mouth angle. It’s totally sexist — why is there a headline “first lady with foul mouth” when he & all the advisor/ lobbyists, etc. use the same colorful language. Why single her out?
    Seems to me that it’s sexist.)

    So, now we’ve seen this angle in the sun-times, right now on MSNBC, and countless others.
    It’s silly.

    T-Shirts could be a little more funny….

    ==First Lady Jessica Biel==

    How many fingers am I holding up?

    I can’t wait for SNL.

    Bleepin’ awesome!

  6. - hisgirlfriday - Thursday, Dec 11, 08 @ 8:13 pm:

    I liked this Maddow clip with the reenactment of Blagojevich’s statements from the transcript better.

    BTW, I think she is having Fritchey on MSNBC later in her show this hour. She just promo’d having an Illinois rep who is drafting impeachment articles.

    Thank You. This website is awesome.

  8. - A Citizen - Thursday, Dec 11, 08 @ 8:46 pm:

    Hey guys, slow this train down! Haste Makes waste. We’ve been waiting for this for years - take our time and savor the moments, step by step. Time is our friend.

  9. - Frank Sobotka - Thursday, Dec 11, 08 @ 9:12 pm:

    Rod should be played by Peter Ishkans.

    It’s all about the hair.

  10. - syed shams - Thursday, Dec 11, 08 @ 9:16 pm:

    i have no words for this EXCELLENT

  11. - A Citizen - Thursday, Dec 11, 08 @ 9:17 pm:

    Okay so who plays the Hairbrush Trooper/Bodyguard ?

  12. - dupage progressive - Thursday, Dec 11, 08 @ 9:17 pm:

    Frank — that is hilarious!!
    Where did you find that guy?

    He is a dead-ringer, but also kinda looks like Dana Carvey with a crazy Rod-like wig…

  13. - Take It Easy - Thursday, Dec 11, 08 @ 9:29 pm:

    OMG, jon stewart’s bit is hilarious.

  14. - Take It Easy - Thursday, Dec 11, 08 @ 9:41 pm:

    GrandTheftBlago . . . genius.

  15. - anon - Thursday, Dec 11, 08 @ 10:08 pm:

    Can we call the movie Blagogate?

  16. - Crime Story - Thursday, Dec 11, 08 @ 10:21 pm:

    Lt. Mike Torello finally caught Ray Luca.
    ( My TV is old)

  17. - wordslinger - Thursday, Dec 11, 08 @ 10:40 pm:

    Gail Collins in NYT:

    “Feel free to indulge in a little schadenfreude at the expense of the governor of Illinois. Sure, the last couple of months have been tough. But at least you didn’t have to spend your birthday listening to the nation debate whether you were the most corrupt elected official in living memory or simply out of your mind.”

  18. - earnest - Thursday, Dec 11, 08 @ 10:43 pm:

    Caught in Fitz’s Blagnet?

  19. - Frank Sobotka - Friday, Dec 12, 08 @ 12:23 am:


    Saw him flipping thru the channels a few months ago. I honestly though it was the Governor for a minute. The show is ‘Peter Perfect’ = he’s like the Gov’s fruity alter ego!

  20. Pingback Who’s Blagojevich’s Iraqi Guy; Nadhmi Auchi or Aiham Alsammarae? « Conservative Thoughts and Profundity - Friday, Dec 12, 08 @ 7:30 pm:

    […] Who’s Blagojevich’s Iraqi Guy; Nadhmi Auchi or Aiham Alsammarae? H/T Rich Miller’s Capital Fax today. Check Jon Stewart out from last night. Note Blagojevich saying this on the phone, “How’s Tony doing? [Scene cut] The Iraqi guy? You gonna talk to him today about the other stuff?” […]
