"I feel like I'm prepared emotionally to perform in a state like I've never been prepared before."

"When you're exposed to some slightly crazy people in arctic conditions, there's no way the state can hurt me now."

That's "The Daily Show"'s John Oliver, who's performing in Milwaukee tonight, and the preparation he's referring to is his coverage of the Wisconsin protests last year. At the link, there are 3 clips from that coverage, and we just laughed hysterically at this one where he interviews state senator Jon Erpenbach, as if he's a terrorist, hiding out in his "cave" in the tribal stronghold of Illi-no-EEZ.

The Blagojovich clip was pretty good too.

That was grade A humor done as only a British outsider's point of view does it in Monty Python style. Thanks for the laughter.

Speaking of Comedy Channel, there is a movement afoot asking Stephen Colbert to make a primary challenge against Walker in the upcoming recall election.

Will Andy refer to Colbert as a joke candidate?

John and his writers would do the country a great service if they applied their talents to both sides of the aisle, for politicians view themselves as above the hoi polloi.(even Godzero looks at his supporters as being so stupid they can't even choose the correct light bulb)

They may have a point though, we return too many incumbents.

Beat? Like drums? Like war drums? Your innate racism is showing through, GM :)

Will they be bringing blackjack tables and slot machines?

Great. You've rounded up more people who live just about entirely off government.

Keep clapping.
