    Lewis Black is great and he really gave it to Glenn Beck. I can't believe what comes out of that man's mouth.

    Yeah, the "Nazi Tourette's" comment was great. Loved the bit about him flaunting more swastikas than the History Channel. :D

    Too funny - and about time.

    Back in Black or any other segment he does on the Daily Show is always the highlight of the show. This one was no exception.

    "It's like six degrees of Kevin Bacon, except it's only one degree and Kevin Bacon is Hitler."

    For a decade, people on the left suffered from a condition that has come to be known as "outrage fatigue", which now seems to be impacting the tea dwellers. The left was fortunate enough to be availed of the services of Lewis Black, who was able to spin that outrage up to a peak and create intense humor out of it, providing leftists with refreshing relief and a bit of re-energizing. AFAICT, the right has no one to compare.

    Beck illustrates the difference between people laughing with you and people laughing at you.

    The best part was Black telling Beck to do what the Jews did. Go hide in an attic and be "very quiet" :p

    It was actually a coded message to other members of the VLWC to help coördinate the progress of our monumental cunning plan.

    Made sense to me. I don't think he is just trying to "sound smart"...herein.

    BTW, that Lewis Black piece was brilliant.

    Invest in long-term stable issues. Real green is good, if you can find it. Speculation is killing us.

    That was the best Back In Black segment he's ever done.

    Brilliant and Bravo.

    OP, thanks for posting this.... I missed that episode.

    Considering black read everything from cue cards and its a poor comedy routine, desperation must be setting in.

    And NO I'm not a fox channel fanatic either.

    I would like you, or anyone, to put together a 5 minute speech and then record it without using notes. Could you do that? It's NOT easy.

    Cue cards and teleprompters are used because it is more engaging for the audience instead of someone looking down at notes in their laps. Welcome to the world of television. Nixon vs. Kennedy. Obama vs. McCain. Palin. Quayle. Dukakis. Kerry. Lieberman. Reagan. The list of people you can learn from when it comes to engaging an audience and conveying your message is as long as the list of winners and losers. Both good and bad.
