I think more Hugh Jackman rather than Hugh Grant. Breaking into the showtuney thing at the end too.

Meh - from a political standpoint, I understand why Hillary Clinton complained. Politicians running for office need to garner an air of presidential respectability, and being compared to a pimp is the exact opposite of that. Had this not been an election year, I don't think anyone would've complained. Plus, her complaint also got her some free press and discussion (what politician doesn't love that). I had to laugh when the reporter said he didn't mean to be pejorative with the word, because he obviously did.

Also, you have to realize that the popular media in America is essentially a bitchocracy: whoever complains gets their way. Corporations will always apologize whenever people complain (example: Don Imus), and they'll "do the right thing" (aka kowtow) by suspending people if they think it will make the public happy. The media is just plain spineless and will tell people whatever they want to hear. Corporations care about one thing: money, and if they think apologizing will get them more money than not apologizing, they'll do what it takes - usually erring on the side of excessively apologizing. Besides, an apology doesn't cost any money.

Keith is right about the Guinness fag spoon.

Crap, I'm not seeing the show in the feed.

Keith Farnan was really good, have him on again! It's great to hear an Irish guy's humour, it's a lot like the British stuff (which I love, of course). I was surprised K+C didn't laught more at his jokes, I thought he was really funny!

Exactly.

And my point would be this: how can you blame Hillary for the fact that the media (MSNBC) reacted so spinelessly? It is her *job* as a politician to look for any advantages that she can get in a campaign like this, especially when fortune has turned against her to the extent that she is now basically running against the political equivalent of the iPod at the height of its popularity. She put the bait out there and they took it. Gasp! Shame on her!

Ouch, you just lost your invitation to the next Guiness tasting.

I love the Irish accent. I had to learn an Irish accent for 2 different plays I was in and I loved it. It was so fun learning. I played a child in both shows, so it was not supposed to be as developed... but I love listening to it.

These were the shows:
