I love John Fugelsang. We've done some standup shows together, and I just love the guy.

First, you have to respect the man's opening. I kind of sat there slack-jawed while he wove current events, intelligent themes and a healthy dose of wit into the show's opening monologue. Dude belongs on the teevee! We had fun through the rest of the show bouncing between serious and comedic while discussing the president's tough spot (taking fire from left and right), Boehner's obsession with Orange-Americans and bullying.

Thanks to GRITtv for having me. It's been a while since I could actually make it on the show.
