If you could capture any politician and keep him chained up in your backyard as a pet, who would it be and what cutesy pet name would you give him?
Dennis Kucinich. I’d call him “Gilbert Gottfried.”

What are you going to do to stop global warming?
Shame-stare people driving Escalades.

What are you going to do to stop Ralph Nader?
I think once he sees Dennis Kucinich — oh, excuse me, Gilbert — reciting the “Aristocrats” joke in my backyard, I’ll be able to shame-stare him into anything.

No more writers’ strike! Thoughts?
I hope this doesn’t mean the end

    Warm weather is supposed to be accessorized by lackaday, by a breezy sensibility best enjoyed with a frosty tall boy in one hand, the sloppy product of a back-yard barbecue in the other.
