"It can be fun," joked Mandvi. He shared a few gestures (particularly on airplanes) that he uses to scare strangers. Wilmore could relate: "I used to be able to just glare -- and white people would freak out. Man, those were the days."
On the Daily Show (weeknights, 11 PM, Comedy Central), correspondent Aasif Mandvi got to the bottom of Afghan President Hamid Karzai's love-hate relationship with the U.S. by comparing his (fake) social networking pages. Karzai only allows the U.S. access to Karzai's Facebook page, where he claims to love "blue jeans, rock n' roll music" and is friends with Dane Cook, apple pie, and baseball. But his LinkedIn page tells a different story.
"The Heart of Hopeness": Barack Obama delivered his acceptance speech the other night, to a stadium full of insanely excited Democrats. John Oliver filed a report live from the site of Obama's speech. Man, John has really been putting himself on the line this week, being incredibly annoying in front of so many overexcited people. I mean, chanting "Osama!" at a massive crowd of Obama lovers is almost a sure to bring about a beating, but he totally lucked out with some relatively mild verbal confrontation. Other great moments included dancing to Jeremiah Wright's "white friends" song and making his move on hot strangers. As we would see later in the episode, it seems like the Democratic National Convention brought out the friskiness in the correspondents.
We are nearing the end of The Daily Show's two-week hiatus, but I'm suffering from a serious case of the political commentary shakes. In a desperate attempt to curb my withdrawal symptoms, I spent most of July 4th cracking jokes about the FISA Bill, but nobody wanted to hear it and drowned me out with lots of Roman Candles and exploding beer cans. Hopefully, other fans have been coping better than I have, but just in case you aren't, here are a few things to hold you over a few more days.
Still-President Bush (I think I will start referring to him as such, as well) paid a visit to the US Air Force Academy's graduation and had a little fun with some soldiers on this celebratory day. I'm surprised there weren't any MySpace poses in this collection of poses from the day. This would be so much more endearing if there wasn't always that underlying tone of evil in everything he does. I'm just sayin'.
