Say It Isn’t So!
Last Friday Scottish-born late-night talk show host Craig Ferguson became an American citizen, thereby removing the final impediment to our happy future together. But alas, he announced last night on his show that he has been tapped for that insidious enemy of American democracy, the White House Correspondents’ Dinner!!! The last of this species should surely have been the superb 2006 Stephen Colbert version. Following last year’s diluted display with the clueless and supposedly inoffensive Rich Little, Frank Rich indicated that the New York Times would no longer be participating. Someone, everyone, needs to put a stake through the heart of this unholy alliance/schmooze-fest. (Craig, I still love you.)
