There's such thing as a liberal media indeed.
 
2013-10-30 08:26:33 PM  
If we had a nominally decent media this guy would not dare show his face in public right now. Instead he's practically feted by some. The adulation and acceptance he's given for his stunt practically ensures he'll do it again

"Have you seen this? Have you heard about this, people? Apparently this Ted Cruz guy shut down the government then protested against the government shutdown. The last time there was a Cruz this unsuccessful it was aboard the Carnival Triumph. Yep. You took a cruise on that ship, didn't you Rickey Minor? Now, we give Ted Cruz a lot of flak, but...did you see this? Did you know this? Ted Cruz is apparently a Canadian, but his father was a Cuban. Apparently he's the only guy in the Senate cafeteria who puts maple syrup on a cigar. True story, people."

Besides being in the Dead Kennedy's for a couple of years what has he really done since "The Courtship of Eddie's Father." was  canceled?
 
2013-10-30 10:04:34 PM  
Maybe the audience will cheer "Boo-urns" when he walks out on stage.

Ted voted to default. I don't need anymore proof that he hates my country, job, and my children.

He doesn't hate your country, job, or your children. He just loves the limelight.

Oh, just shut up, Ted Cruz, you cock.

I understand the egos involved. For me he (and the 144 fools in congress) crossed a line. It's not politics. It was an attack on the common good that the country will be too ignorant to properly punish.
 
2013-10-30 11:50:44 PM  
I'd love to see him on the Daily Show but that's never gonna happen.
 
2013-10-30 11:52:32 PM  
Sounds like a good way to get money and attention.

If we don't give him money and attention he'll go away.

Colbert would even be better
 
2013-10-30 11:55:27 PM  
Leno should just say "fark it, I'm ready to be done with this show" and just completely destroy Cruz. Start with the nice questions and chit chat and then just completely rip into him for hurting the country, being a selfish prick, and a sleezy person overall who deserves all the hate in the world. I hope the entire crowd boos him too. Every time there is a pause or he finishes speaking, I want to hear boos.
 
2013-10-30 11:58:07 PM  
"Maybe the Tea Party-backed senator will even have a few zingers to throw back at Jay Leno."

Whoa ho hoooooooo! Here come the Zany zingers!
 
2013-10-30 11:59:09 PM  
Tuned in for the trainwreck and instead I see Kim Kardashian.

/yeah i know

Came to mention that pairing. It'll be the most attention whorey episode of Leno EVAR.

Not going to happen,  Leno leans to the right & NBC will edit out any boos

Oh god, what a trainwreck the 'Canned Zingers' could become.
 
2013-10-31 12:17:06 AM  
Haha Cruz is the throwaway guest I guess since Abigail Breslin is next

/not watching that closely. playing some Tecmo Bowl
 
2013-10-31 12:20:05 AM  
You mean Rafael Eduardo Cruz, the Canadian born son of one of Fidel Castro's Commie terrorists? That "Ted" Cruz?
 
2013-10-31 12:25:43 AM  
Has Jay Leno ever been "cool". Has he ever appeared on Fark as cool? (except maybe for his cars?)

http://www.viralviralvideos.com/tag/jay-leno/
Ironically, Jay Leno's Garage, where the renown TV show host reviews one of a kind cars, is more popular online than the official The Tonight Show With Jay Leno YouTube channel, standing with over half a million subscribers compared to only a mere 80,000.

I think Jay knows he has an eminently punchable face (was he a first?), so maybe he is bringing on Cruz as a more punchable distraction.

You shouldn't focus on the actual vote. He (and a good portion of the 144) knew it would pass, and were just scoring more political points with it. Politicians do this all the time when they know some bill is going to go through. The clearly insane and unacceptable part is before that, when they attempted to use the threat of an economic collapse to extort the rest of the government. That is what is completely unacceptable (and insane). They tried to subvert the entire process for their own ends, and used the livelihood of regular Americans, and hell, probably the rest of the world, to do it. The vote at the end was just theater.
 
2013-10-31 12:28:33 AM  
Is he promoting Jackass?
 
2013-10-31 12:32:30 AM  
Ok so Cruz is not tonight. I wasted soooo much time listening to Leno.

Brave Sir Teddy ran away!
Bravely ran away away!
When cameras reared their ugly head
He bravely turned his tail and fled
Bravely bravely bravely brave Sir Teddy!

You're insulting all cocks, sir.

Leno is a car guys car guy. It really makes up for all his shortcomings. Drives and can fix everything he owns, if you'll hold this wrench for him.

He doesn't hate your country, job, or your children. He just loves the limelight hates the fact that you still have a small piece of it, plebe.

If you had presented this as a transcript of Leno's actual monologue on the night of the Cruz interview, I would have believed it.

If this is how NBC thinks they're gonna get my eyeballs, they've got another thing coming.
 
2013-10-31 01:06:08 AM  
Why does Jay Leno hate America? For country that has given a talentless hack so much, and we asked for so little. This is our reward?
 
2013-10-31 01:06:49 AM  
Will Teddy be wearing his clown shoes?
 
2013-10-31 01:31:20 AM  
I just checked the Tonight Show website and it says the guest is Mark Cuban.  Ted is Cuban, so I could see the mistake.

Ah hell, I can't craft that into a good joke, but you see where I'm going, so gimme a pity chuckle.

Yes, I read that in Jay Leno's voice.  Well done.

Subby, The Tonight Show was cancelled in January 2010, but will return to the airwaves after the 2014 Winter Olympics.

WTF is this treasonous @sshole who wanted to default on our debt and permanently damage our country doing on a talk show? Does this d!ckhead actually believe he can become president?

They should be asking him why he shouldn't be in jail for what he did.

Politically he accomplished nothing but he stood up to that Oburma and that makes him a hero

Leno describes himself as a fiscal conservative/social liberal who likes and respects Obama and described Rick Perry as "too narrow minded", so I doubt he's got a soft spot for Cruz. He may chide Cruz for costing the economy $24B, or ask him if his wife working for GS and him wanting to burn it all down ever makes for an awkward home life, but then they'll agree to disagree, settle on "both sides are bad" and talk about cars.

I want to see George Stromboulopoulos help Cruz fill out the forms to relinquish his Canadian citizenship.

Hopefully. At this point in his career, I've come to regard Leno as a prominent and exemplary automotive collector and historian, who, for some inexplicable reason, has a deadly boring television show.

Oh since Ted is going on the tonight show let's marginalize the Tonight Show and call it a shill for the Tea Party or the Republicans .
Fark the Lefts Brain is terminally stuck on stupid .
You can fool some of the people some of the time but you can't fool all the people all the time .

The Tonight Show is  for old people, who don't have much sense of humor.  So...
 
2013-10-31 07:12:48 AM  
It's more a shill for old and out of touch incurious types that prefer the trappings of humor to actual satire, and enjoy media that congratulates them for recognizing keywords and minor celebrities. So yeah, I guess, republicans.
