In a statement released after Paul’s gig atop The Ed Sullivan Theater, Sarah Palin accused The Beatles of being “Commie lovers of the former U.S.S.R.” and  “statutory gang-raping a caribou with a flute.”

Why I Love Hating Letterman’s Apology

HBN: 7 Hypocritical Moments in Fox’s Letterman/Palin Report (VIDEO: OR GET THE CLAP)

How do I love/hate theeLet me count the ways

1)  Gladstone, a brilliant satirist and humorist from Cracked.com, tells it like it is (from Ali’s perspective) on the whole Letterman/Palin faux debacle.  A “debacle” undeserving of a French adjective or, in Palin’s case, a word with more than one syllable — like, “debacle.”

2)  Remember kids, this blog is about me.  Gladstone is a friend of “Unsuable Signal” and one of the funniest guests we’ve ever had.  So, check out the episode where we had callers from Ireland and attempted calls from Australia.  Since Australians are well known Commies — not a total loss.  I mean, they do control Blog Talk Radio.  We also have the beginnings of my radio career where my well timed Tourette’s Syndrome with coprophiliac features came in quite handy.

3)  Dennis DiClaudio wrote a piece about myself and Gladstone on Comedy Central’s Indecision.  This of course, induced a massive nerdgasm catapulting me into a month-long state of euphobia.

4)  Sweet Irony:  As you may or may not know, Tommy Christopher landed a gig at Asylum today.  Totally Awesome!  Even Awesomer?  On the front page today I noticed Gladstone’s Hate By Numbers series along with Tommy’s first article.  What I’m certain neither of them know, until perhaps now, is they have polar opposite views on Letterman’s “apology.”  To sum up Tommy’s position (with a bit of conflation): Dave’s a statutory rapist:

Letterman’s attacks were made in an exponentially larger, broader forum, and included the statutory rape of a minor child.  They cannot be taken down or redacted.

Tommy knows my position.  It’s complex.  Dave’s not a rapist.   He’s a Meth addict.

6:  Gladstone and Tommy need to hook up.  They can give each other cyber-Chlamydia.  Or genital warts.  Two hysterical STD’s.

That’s loving hate by numbers.  And that’s all.

Artie Lange Rapes Joe Buck, Apology Unlikely

What’s in a word?

The New York Times does a great job analyzing Artie Lange’s hijack of Joe Buck’s premier on HBO as he took over Costas Live:

Michael Irvin, in the audience after being part of a segment with Bengals receiver Chad Johnson following the Favre interview, could only laugh at the spectacle.

“It’s refreshing to see white-on-white crime,” he said.

Lange’s shtick, which will be dissected with Stern on Tuesday morning, will be compared — for the attention it has created — to last year’s confrontation over blogging on “Costas Now” between the writer Buzz Bissinger and Will Leitch, then of Deadspin.

Bissinger kept erupting, creating a fascinating tableau of righteous anger.

But the Lange incident — which benefited from the artistic freedom that HBO provides — was not about any particular issue; it was about Lange’s decision that the stage was his to seize. Buck said: “It’s an unfortunate thing that happened. But it’s live. If it were taped, nobody would have seen it.”

Look, sometimes a rape victim suffers from Stockholm Syndrome.  We should all pray for Joe Buck, but I have a feeling he’ll be begging for Lange’s return.  It’s a vicious cycle these talk show hosts go through.

WARNING: THIS SHOW WILL CONTAIN EXPLICIT LANGUAGE ANS VULGAR SEXUAL INNUENDO IS LIKELY (ACTUALLY, IT PROBABLY WON’T BE INNUENDO IF I MAKE IT WITH A POLAR BEAR I’VE TRAINED TO LOVE ME FOR WHO I AM). Toddlers should listen without their parent’s consent. Comedy has been put under a microscope unfairly as of late, and, it’s a good time to mark down DNR on the toe-tag of the P.C. Police. Or, have them do comedy themselves.
