Well folks, I had no choice but to launch ‘Operation Killing Killing Kennedy’ to knock O’Reilly’s book from the top. And Nation, you did it! ‘America Again’ hit number one on Amazon. Literally, literally. Read it and weep, Bill! Not only did ‘America Again’ beat out ‘Killing Kennedy’, it also beat out the kinky psycho-sexual novel ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’. Due, I’m sure, to my book’s depictions of depraved sadomasochistic sex. Once again, my apologies Doris Kearns Goodwin.
Yes, I would fit right into the Senate. I love any job that has recess.
John McCain was asked what he would teach Colbert if he landed the job. McCain jokingly replied, ‘How to shut up.’ *laughter* It’s a joke because clearly he can’t make anyone shut up.
Stephen: $174, 000 a year. How do you live? Do you get food stamps?
Jeff: I don’t, but that is because I have a wife who has also been very successful in supporting our family.
Stephen: So I should marry rich?
Jeff: You need to marry rich for sure.
Stephen: Now we both now the House of Representatives are a bunch of losers compared to you guys. Do you have the power as a Senator, to just walk up to anyone in Congress and give them a wedgie?
Jeff: Ah yeah, I guess I do.
Oh, you could call this a Mos-Que-Rade. And I’m in no Mah-Mood for it, I’ve Ji-Had it up to here. The media Hajj to Mecca big deal out of this. Hummus.
Fighting with dance and music. Have we learnt nothing from ‘West Side Story’?
Why can’t I pronounce you!?!
