A sad day for comedy

It is with great regret that I have to bring this up on my blog. It is, indeed, a sad day for comedy, specifically American comedy. The great Jon Stewart (above) of The Daily Show will have to find a new object of ridicule because White House spokesman Scott McLellan (below) has resigned.

It is a sad day for us all, in fact. Because McLellan was surely the funniest thing about the Bush administration. His squirming under pressure and inability to answer any questions put to him in press conferences were second to none. Well, all right, second to Bush's squirming under pressure and inability to answer any questions put to him in press conferences.

Arrivederci, au revoir, and goodbye.

Oh Nooooooooooooooo
This is like Mr.Bill dying. I love to watch the Big Boy clone squirm & give his fake smile.
Now, it's gonna be boring.

Please tell me that you mostly watched snippits of McLellan on the Daily Show, and didn't actually tune in to CNN for his blather. Shit, I live in the states, and must admit, I never purposely watched that idiot. Can't wait to see what idiot clone replaces him...

Yes, just The Daily Show and some cool website that Wife has bookmarked with all this sort of thing on it. Never watch CNN. Apart from anything else, it seems to only ever show the weather. What's with that?

Oops, I made a mistake above: it's Fox with all the weather breaks (y'know, the "fair and balanced" news channel), not CNN.
