larry00: 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 .


I recommend a change in perspective.

Parable

Buddha told a parable in sutra:
A man traveling across a field encountered a tiger. He fled, the tiger after him. Coming to a precipice, he caught hold of the root of a wild vine and swung himself down over the edge. The tiger sniffed at him from above. Trembling, the man looked down to where, far below, another tiger was waiting to eat him. Only the vine sustained him.
Two mice, one white and one black, little by little started to gnaw away the vine. The man saw a luscious strawberry near him. Grasping the vine with one hand, he plucked the strawberry with the other. How sweet it tasted!

Eddie Barzoom: Alphax is too concise for me to compete with.


Well, if you can't be concise, be just - and if you can't be just, be arbitrary.

Dear ted cruz.

I do not know you, nor do I wish you any harm.

But you've got an awfully giant head to be waving around in a country full of mentally unstable people with high powered rifles.

/Maybe you should hide?

jso2897: 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.


The television show is simple.

Old folks have a choice between Leno and Letterman, and David Letterman's TV show is many, many times worse then Jay Leno.

/Letterman told Sebastian Vettel, German F1 driver who's 23, not to get to cocky because America won the war.
//Vettel owned him by responding "Maybe you fought in the war, I was not born yet."
///Only interesting part of the interview.

I love Ted Cruz threads. Libtard heads exploding everywhere. Such fun and going on with Leno... he's been number 1 in the ratings mostly for his take on BOB lately.

"Herman? Herman? HERMAN??"
"What, Gladys. It's the middle of the night!"
"Charlie McCarthy is on Carson."
"Who?"
"Charlie McCarthy."
"The puppet? There's no puppet on Carson."
"No, the Commie guy."
"The comedy guy?"
"COMMIE! COMMIE, you deaf old goat!"
"That's *Joe* McCarthy, Gladys!"
"Excuse me for not knowing his name, Mister-big-shot-know-it-all. Why don't you call Art Linkletter and go on his Jeopardy?"
"Art Linkletter is on, too?"
"No, Joe McCarthy!"
"What is he saying?"
"He says he's from Texas."
"Taxes?"
"TEXAS!"
"When is Carson coming back from vacation, anyway?"

Why am I not surprised? Leno is a sellout who practices "Comedy for Conformists" and asskisses just about every right winger out there. He has republicans on far more often than "token" democrats.

Leno's audience is old and he brings on guests that appeal to the old. Next up after Sen. Cruz: Grand Funk Railroad!

I estimate I've seen maybe ten minutes of The Tonight Show since Leno took over. Cruz will not induce me to up that total.

Being number 1 on the list of losers is not exactly an accomplishment to be touted.

Where he will talk about nothing in particular until told to shut up, and then go back to Texas and tell constituents that it was a filibuster.

I know it's an impossible dream, but it would be so epic if, just for one night, Jay re-discovered his balls and totally blindsided Cruz.

"You know, Jay, when my parents first moved to this country, we had an old '67 Chevy that I can remember my father working on for hourse in the garage."

"Yeah, that's great. Can you explain to the American people the difference between yourself and a terrorist?"

Overnight he would undo years of negative perception and become a legend.

Didn't catch it. Watched PBS instead -- the show about the 1000 years old Tower of London.

The value of the Crown Jewels and all the wealth in the Treasury in the Tower of London is just a little more than the $24 B that Cruz managed to squander in just over two weeks. When Wall Street creates a rent-a-mob, you know they can be very destructive.

WTF - was Letterman being fed lame insults by Mark Webber?

What the hell does "number 1 in the ratings" even mean these days? How many live TV events ever have more viewers than the number of users Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon have streaming content at any given moment? Antiquated system is antiquated.

UNC_Samurai: WTF - was Letterman being fed lame insults by Mark Webber?


I think Webber would have had him ask Vettel why he can never win a race if he doesn't start on poll and pull 5 seconds ahead of the pack in the first couple laps.

I think Letterman is just going senile.

/Seriously, Vettel has a terrible time gaining places back once he loses first place.
//Next year with the new engines is going to be very interesting.
///Can't wait to see how RedBull is going to subvert the rules. Like their KERS based 'traction control' that is technically legal because it's entirely in the KERS system.

Jay Leno has been trying to appeal to a right-wing audience ever since he screwed Conan O'Brien.

During that whole mess, conservative commentators were siding with Leno for some bizarre reason.  The only thing I can think of is that they're champions of the overdog and saw Conan as someone who would take the show, and comedy writing in general, in a new and exciting direction.  And since they see anything besides rich people "staying the course" as liberal, they championed a guy who famously steals bits, does nothing controversial, and hoards his money.

People still watch "The Tonight Show"?

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