What makes this really compelling is that Kimmel in a sense represents the new generation of late night host; many of whom grew up and idolized the snarky, New York-based, liberally-biased comedy of David Lettermann.
Oh, it doesn’t mean that the likes of Sarah Silverman (Kimmel’s old girlfriend) will suddenly dump on liberal Democrats, but it does send a signal that it’s okay to maybe add that material to your set every once and a while.
Secondly, Kimmel and his team of writers kill this thing for pointing out why the Affordable Care Act’s design was flawed to begin it. Young people would rather buy a $400 or $500 game console like the PS4 and X Box One than health insurance. That they don’t want to cover the costs of much wealthier, older Americans through a new entitlement AND whoever was the idiot who thought the “You Can Stay On Your Parents’ Plan Through Age 26″ was a good idea when you need them to be the ones paying for you giant wealth redistribution scheme probably should be hunt down and shot.
But that’s just me. Enjoy.
Former President George W. Bush — who has largely shunned media appearances in favor of a bit of post-presidency privacy — is poised to appear as a guest next week on “The Tonight Show.”
The ex-commander-in-chief will sit down with host Jay Leno on Nov. 19.
The last time Bush was a guest on the NBC show was back in 2010 during a book tour.
Bush spokesman Freddy Ford told the cable network the 43rd president wanted to swing by the “Tonight Show” set before Leno gives up the host chair next year, saying, “President Bush is going to be in the area next week so he was happy to accept Jay Leno’s invitation to drop by the show one last time.”
Kimmel? He’s got that whole China Controversy going on, which I doubt any president — sitting or otherwise — would want to be involved in.
