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.

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.


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.

ActionJoe: 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.


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

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.

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.

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.

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 .


The Tonight Show is  for old people, who don't have much sense of humor.  So...

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.

Mr. Coffee Nerves: "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."


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

Aquapope: 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.


Still better than Leno.

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
