Mark Sanford

Whoopi Criticizes Jenny Sanford, Calls Her 'Dumb' (VIDEO)

After watching a preview of an upcoming '20/20' interview with Jenny Sanford on 'The View' (weekdays, syndicated), Whoopi Goldberg criticized the estranged wife of Governor Mark Sanford after it was revealed he refused to pledge his faithfulness during their wedding vows.

"How dumb was she?" asked Goldberg, ranting over Sanford's inability to foresee this as a sign of her husband's future infidelity. The Governor admitted to a yearlong affair with an Argentinian woman last June.

Did you hear the one about an Arianna Huffington sitcom?

Arianna_HuffingtonWhen I first read the headline about Arianna Huffington getting into the TV comedy business, I had visions of her as Maude or something equally as bizarre.

Fortunately, it was just my skewed sense of humor at work, because Arianna Huffington, the political talking head and co-creator of The Huffington Post, is not starring in a sitcom. ABC has bought Huffington's idea for a multicamera sitcom. And just to make sure it's funny, they've hired executive producer Greg Malins (Friends, How I Met Your Mother) to develop the project.

20th Century Fox TV is producing the show for ABC and, yes, it is about politics. See, there are these three freshman members of the House of Representatives, two men and a woman (but no pizza place). They share an apartment in the D.C. area. "One is swept up in the movement of change... one has been in politics for a long time, and one is a master of the media and sound bites," said Malins.

Brian Williams and Jon Stewart: Oh, it's on

by Bob Sassone, posted Jul 27th 2009 12:27PM
This is from last week but I think it's worth showing today, because when Brian Williams went on The Daily Show they didn't just talk about politics, they got into a sometimes good-natured, sometimes prickly trade of insults (some of Stewart's digs are clearly serious, but Williams can give as good as he gets). They also mention Walter Cronkite and Billy Mays.

Stephen Colbert wants to be The Worst Person in the World

by Bob Sassone, posted Jul 16th 2009 5:42PM
Stephen Colbert is angry at Keith Olbermann. He's not upset that Olbermann named him a Worst Person in the World, he's upset because Olberman didn't name him a Worst Person in the World. In this clip, Colbert tries to get on Olbermann's list. His plan involves a baby and a puppy.

We also learn a new term: "junk buffing."

Colbert gives a Tip of the Hat and a Wag of the Finger

by Bob Sassone, posted Jul 2nd 2009 3:14PM
The Colbert Report has a regular feature called A Tip of the Hat and A Wag of the Finger, where he praises one thing and goes after something else. Last night he talked about Missouri State Representative Cynthia Davis and her "hunger can be a positive motivator" stance, and then criticized FOX News for calling Governor Mark Sanford a Democrat, saying they also identified Hurricane Katrina as a Democrat. (Video also here.)

Didn't Jimmy Kimmel do a similar joke recently? Yes he did:

Mark Sanford was on The Colbert Report last year

by Bob Sassone, posted Jun 25th 2009 2:32PM
The weirdest part of that Governor Mark Sanford press conference yesterday wasn't the odd detail he gave or the lies he told his staff about this whole affair/hike, it was the girl in the background behind Sanford who kept smiling broadly. Perhaps the next time a cheating politician has a press conference he should do it with his back against a wall.

Anyway, Stephen Colbert tackled the subject last night. He has a unique take on it because he actually interviewed Sanford back in early 2008 as part of his "Better Know" series (the interview was repeated earlier this year). Here's the whole episode (the Sanford segment is first).
