The Daily Show: May 15, 2007
"Nip/Talk": Jason Jones filed a report about the importance of a presidential candidate's looks and ability to carry an interview. This started off a little weak, but I liked the Situation Room ending, if only for Wolf Blitzer's performance. Jones' sudden beard -- the rapid growth of which probably fueled by frustration -- was also quite nice.
"Banned Width": The troops have been blocked from sites like MySpace and YouTube because we're at war and soldiers aren't allowed entertainment of any kind. Sweet Jesus. What in the hell was that ottoman-humping business?! I had never seen it before, so I immediately jumped on YouTube to find it. Strangely enough, I managed to get it pretty easily by entering "ottoman humping" in the search bar. Well, I found a version of the video, anyway. It really is nothing more than ottoman-humping.
The night's guest was Tim Russert, author of Wisdom of Our Fathers: Lessons and Letters from Daughters and Sons and host of Meet the Press. I can't believe they showed that footage of Karl Rove again. Oh, how it makes me cringe. Seeing that footage actually made me lose a little love for my boys from Whose Line Is It Anyway?, Brad Sherwood and Colin Mochrie.
Jon/Stephen: None. But Jon did extend an invitation to Bush and MC Rove. Moment of Zen: I'm the next president.
