I have to agree with Mill, tho: For pure wit and classic zinger style, I have to also go with Colbert. Nobody can top that smart@ss!
Outstanding! Thanks for the link.

perhaps you’d like two more chairs to contain your giant intellect

I loved it even more when Cavett told Mailer to take his note and fold it 5 times and stick it where the sun don't shine... Mailer was such an egotistical @ss always.
Please consider adopting a rescue animal. So very many need a furr-ever home and someone to love them! And if we all spay/neuter our pets there won't be an overpopulation to put to death.

To answer critics...

"the Rally to Determine Precisely the Percentage of Blame to Be Doled Out to the Left and the Right for Our Problems Because We All Know That the Only Thing That Matters Is That the Other Guys Are Worse Than We Are and/or Fear."
Stewart responds to critics with rally proposal – The Marquee Blog - Blogs
Have Funds, Will Retire

...not doing anything of true substance...

One thing I'll say about this Jon guy- I wish I had his hair. He has seriously good middle-aged man hair.
