5. Agreed.

While I agree with his political views, it's hard to see him as a comedian.

3. I guess everyone has that reaction to some comedian.
personally I find him quite refreshing and a riot. His style is to push the boundaries.

4. If she would stop interrupting him
you might have seen him get funny. I've seen him extremely funny in a
dry wit sort of way.

6. The "Angry Guy" is a time-honored comedic trope.
It goes back to Ancient Greek theater.

8. Same with the pope;
Once you get past his similarities with Darth Vadar, all you've got left is pedophiles. Now that's funny!

11. A Great Tradition
Lewis Black is a social critic, like all the greats. He's not really 'on' in this segment, but so what? He's always got something to say and is now starting to look like a Jewish Gore Vidal.

I saw him on his "Me Of Little Faith" book tour, and he was outstanding - spoke at length about his discovery of 1) money and 2) the tax-avoidance industry. "So some guy who gets $10 million a year and pays 70% in taxes - are you telling me you can't get by on $3 mil this year? Just can't make it work, at all???" Big laughs.

WTF with that Kelsey Grammer promo, anyway? I want desperately not to believe it, but this country is 198% fcked. Whether it's teabaggers going Nazi or the Chinese hanging a 'pay or quit' notice on the Golden Gate Bridge, we're done. Finished.

14. Did you see Obermann's segment on Grammer's "network"?
Apparently, Kelsey & friends have been claiming they've got financial backing and a distribution agreement with Comcast.

Seems Comcast has never heard of them.
