This episode was full of sweet candy goodness and I’m not just talking about how nice Stephen’s hair looked. The fact that Michigan is getting Sno-Kone machines, excuse me, Ice Shaving machines, from grant money was an eye opener that I’m sure will not be covered much elsewhere. I loved the visual approximation of Mr. Freeze. Visual approximation jokes never get old. Cheating Death was pretty revolting. The mere thought of eating feces and licking lollipops already licked by strangers was hard to believe and yet I know since it was on the show, it must be true.

Rick Perry. I don’t know whether he is just saying this stuff to get publicity or whether he actually believes what he spews, but something tells me it’s actually both. The ad has been on Youtube for a few days now and it’s getting a lot of attention. Stephen put things into perspective as always with lip-locking Santas.

Jack Abramoff was an interesting interview. Hopefully he really is a changed man and will now be out there fighting corruption. It’s kind of hard to believe that now, so he’s got a lot of work to do to earn the public’s trust again.
