Elizabeth Olsen is the younger sister of Mary Kate and Ashley of Full House and tabloid fame.  While it would be interesting if she chatted about her role as the Scarlet Witch in the upcoming Avengers: Age of Ultron, that movie is in early pre-production for a 2015 release.  Instead she will talk about Oldboy, due to be released next week.

I was surprised to see Steve McQueen listed as a guest because he's been dead for 33 years.  Well, it's not that one.

This one is the director of 12 Years a Slave a film that led Richard Cohen who hasn't been a liberal for longer than that other Steve McQueen has been dead and has recently reminded everyone who pays attention he's a racist too that slavery was bad.

Cohen has other reprehensible opinions so this should come as no surprise, but don't let that fool you- he's also an idiot.

The evidence Colin Powell presented to the United Nations — some of it circumstantial, some of it absolutely bone-chilling in its detail — had to prove to anyone that Iraq not only hasn't accounted for its weapons of mass destruction but without a doubt still retains them. Only a fool — or possibly a Frenchman — could conclude otherwise.
As is customary on Mondays (and every other day for that matter) I wish to extend the offer for some lucky volunteers to try their hand at the wheel.  The rest of the week looks something like this-

The Daily Show

* Tuesday 11/19: Bill Cosby
* Wednesday 11/20: Jennifer Lawrence
* Thursday 11/21: Tom Brokaw

The Colbert Report

* Tuesday 11/19: Rick Santorum
* Wednesday 11/20: M.I.A.
* Thursday 11/21: J.J. Abrams

If you see a guest whom you particularly admire (or loath) just let me know either below or in a private message.  I don't generally start preparing these before 8 pm so if you can get to me before that it saves me some writing time.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
