Tonight comedian Lewis Black was on MSNBC’s Countdown with Keith Olbermann talking about the disappearance of Gov. Mark Sanford, the family values of Sen. John Ensign, and Barack Obama’s smoking. Check out the video.
Here is the video:
Black on post Bush life, “Just because he left office, doesn’t mean that stupidity left the country. They really continue to top themselves. Black on Sen. Ensign, “It was a step forward for the Republicans because it was a woman, so we’re moving maybe in the right direction for them again. They’re back to family values.”
Black on Obama’s smoking, “I think it would be great at some point, because they love to just go nuts over him, what he should do, something should happen some major event occurs, and what his response should be is to just be walking in front of the White House smoking, smoking his brains out.”
This wasn’t “The Daily Show” Lewis Black. Frankly, I don’t know if I have ever seen him so mellow, but it was a good segment none the less. It probably would have worked better if Olbermann was a little less participant and more straight man, but for those of us who are a bit older it was nice to see that the Sportscenter era Olbermann isn’t completely dead and buried.
