Joy to Report, for next week’s shows! Let fans receive his song. Let every ear prepare to hear, Let every ear prepare to hear. For Stephen and guests will sing. For Stephen and guests will sing. Let STE-E-EPHEN and his guests sing!
Yes, Hubsters, we’re getting a week filled with music—and more. We Jews probably won’t be blessed enough to have Mr. Colbert rock a couple of verses of “Dreidel, Dreidel,” although there IS one guest who should probably pick something a little more Kosher. (Keep in mind, I realize that NO ONE can actually “rock” “Dreidel.”) But I’m no Scrooge, so no complaints here about what should be yet another extraordinary and special group of episodes. And not only has a schedule of visitors been posted, but the song each particular person/group of people will perform.
This should be the last week of shows prior to the holiday break–and it’s ending with a favorite of mine, a non-religious song composed by one of my idols.
I hope everyone has purchased America Again by now. If not . . . why not?
Election season seems to bring out the best in Stephen and Jon—if not everyone else—and their shows have been blazing in the past few weeks. Kudos to Jon for some of the sharpest work he’s done in a long time. And thank you, Stephen, for everything (but especially the searing humor of “Four more wars! Four more wars!).
This week looks pretty amazing, with both the Report and TDS having a host of fabulous guests. Got to hand it to Jon this week, though. Wow. His booker SHOULD get an Emmy®.
Tuesday’s debate will likely provide more fodder for everyone—and I’m hoping that this time Mitt is the butt of the jokes. I’m betting that if Obama does as badly as he did last debate, he’s going to get an earful from Jon on Thursday.
I would just like to take a moment to offer my best wishes for a full recovery to the brave Pakistani schoolgirl shot by the Taliban, Malala Yousafzai. The 14-year-old is an inspiration and, in my opinion, should received the Nobel Peace Prize–not the European Union. Malala is currently on her way to the UK, where she will receive physical and psychological care.
