|Tonight on TDS, Dennis Miller, "Comedian" No! Come back! and on TCR, Madeleine Albright, Secretary of State and James Fallows, The Atlantic Monthly|
|Tonight's sausage-grinder of snark setting: basking in the sun, coughing up a lung... damn tree sex. Hey, get a room! No pollinating in public! I'm lookin at you, Maple... I tell ya, saplings these days, got no morals...|
| Jon's guest is Dennis Miller -- again. I opined about him when he was on in October. I don't remember why he was on then, but his Fox show's since been cancelled and he's now doing radio. Yay. Couple quotes for you --this is from the bio on his (newest) website:
I did have some Google-fun, though. Found Dennis Miller Associates, who sell some cool furniture, and a Dennis Miller who's the head of the Music Technology program at Northeastern University in Boston. He's got some cool stuff. Take a look at his site (heavily Flash) during the interview. Or hey, go virtual furniture shopping. It'll be so much better than watching Jon catch up with his pal...again...
|So it seems that Stephen will have both Madeleine Albright and JamesFallows on. I'm guessing that Fallows is the "Interview nook" guest.
I bet Albright's here as an expert, but her latest book has just been released in paperback and she seems to be doing some press for that. She was on TDS last year around this time, I believe selling "The Mighty and the Almighty: Reflections on America, God, and World Affairs." Roughly, it's about religious fundamentalism and political culture. PubWeekly said it has a "a remarkably accessible, even breezy style", continuing
And at a recent celebrity auction, someone paid $1,350 to have tea with her. I hope they go with a quality loose leaf... that's just too much for a cuppa Lipton's.
Fallows is a writer-politico with The Atlantic Monthly (Colbert sends me there so often, I'm thinking about subscribing). He blogs frequently at his own site, and occasionally posts at HuffPo. I didn't find any specific reason for his visit... most of what he's written about lately seems to be tech-y (that's also one of his things) or about life in Shanghai, where he's living these days. He also covers American politics/policy from a Chinese angle, and wrote some pieces about Iran and Iraq in February that got some blogospheric attention. I was going to guess that that would be the topic, and then checked the blog (to find the bit where he wrote about his bad haircut)... he's updated, and yes, it's All About Iraq. Also, Colbert is a nice guy who doesn't dye his hair.
