I listened to this empty segment earlier today. I really couldn't listen for long. I called in to register my dissatisfaction.
When I came home and had a chance to read over the comments of other listeners, I felt as if the world was populated with people not so different from me.
Way to go Lopati - another hour spent in voguish self-indulgent vocalizationsss, don'tcha think?

Why are these guys considered comic? Nothing said was even vaguely funny.

Fortunately, Jon Stewart has excellent editing skills.

Nothing less boring (and not funny) than talking about the process of making comedy

So predictably smug. The whole "if you're white" you're fair game to dress-down is so offensive. (would that be tolerated for any other color? or by a "comic" of any other color than Hodgman's?) And the same goes for "if you're rich" (is that really supposed to be a count against someone? (You don't have to be rich to be out of touch). Is this not pandering to the most smug and envious sensibility?) How are being white and ambitious supposed to look to be okay? These are not the kind of criticism any political discussion is helped by. What a couple of sneering, self-satisfied idiots.

What about the pix of Mrs Romney and her horse - something most NY-ers can associate with (not). (although I guess it wasn't a problem when we saw young Caroline Kennedy with her horse - or was it? Her dad was already in office...)

Do funny liberal pundits get a pass (by unfunny liberal pundits, for starters) on their politics?

Ought they?
