Dany's RaaD Roundup

This Week in News with The Daily Show and The Colbert Report for October 16th, 2010

This week there was a walk off by Joy Behar and Whoopi Goldberg when Bill O’Reilly came on The View to promote Pinheads and Patriots, when he said Muslims attacked us on 9/11, but I searched for the video of the ENTIRE segment because when you watch the entire 14 minute segment, instead of just the standard 5 minute version of the video that is circulating the internet. The FULL version shows that the walk off was much ado about nothing, and I agree with Barbara Walters that it should not have happened because political discussions should commence in a way that people don’t just blow up and walk away, we should be able to talk out our differences civilly. Shortly after the ladies walked off stage, Bill O’Reilly amended what he originally said to rearticulate his point in a way that even the most knee-jerk liberal could agree with. All in all, it’s a non-story, if anything, showing just how uncivil our discussions on politics have become. I agree with O’Reilly‘s final, amended, stance on the 9/11 attack and who attacked America. Thanks Devon for telling my about this event.

Condoleezza Rice promotes her book Extrordinary Ordinary People where she shares her view of just how important an education is to give the best chance at success in life. Now that is a message I can get behind. I just wish that it wasn’t so expensive to actually get that type of solid education.

Here is a wonderful interview with the hilariously dark David Rakoff. Who knew talking about cancer could be so funny? He wrote the book Half Empty, which he was in the middle of writing when he found out he had a tumor.

The transitive property rarely makes it into comedy acts, but I guess anything is possible when Sarah Palin and Christine O’Donnell are involved.

GOATS ARE TAKING AMERICAN JOBS! In this case, the scapegoats… are actual goats. There are very few times in history when goats were being scapegoated, unless you count when goats assassinated Archduke Ferdinand.
