The Ed Show | December 03, 2010
>>> for "club ed" with "the daily show " co-creator lizz winstead . a lot of talk about tax cuts but let's talk, don't ask, don't tell. and where is john mccain on this issue?
>> well, apparently he's stuck somewhere back when he was 22. the guy had arrested development of any kind of growth apparently since thatnoint his life. i don't really understand. it took -- they're actually debating don't ask, don't tell longer than they actually debated going to war in the first place. it's absurd at this point. i mean literally do straight guys go through this much scrutiny when trying to break into musical theater ? come on it's awful.
>> musical theater . no stereotyping there, lizz.
>> no, never with me.
>> all right. the debt commission is getting a lot of attention now. you know we've got to take care of this terrible finance situation that we've got in this country. what was your take on the debt commission and some of the recommendations?
>> well, the recommendations, when you're leaving off you know the cost of wars and you know the tax cut for the rich, again, and you're going into diving into you know cutting medicare and stuff, it's crazy but what do you expect? you have alan simpson who is wyoming's version of a golum heading up the charge. it's really incredible. that they institute this kind of -- this kind of, really, jonathan swifty in modest proposal kind of -- you know bill, where it's basically, they left out, eat the the poor. that's what they left out. i'm surprised that wasn't part of it.
>> charles manson has a cell phone ? what is happening here?
>> well, apparently -- i mean first of all, if you're in a cell, aren't all cells cell phones , technically. when charles manson is texting i think that we've finally realized who is actually doing the tweeting for sarah palin .
>> christine o'donnell says that she's going to write a book. what do you make of that?
>> well, i think first she should learn how to read one. and then she should learn how to write one but i don't really -- i mean it's going to be fantasy fiction obviously. but what does she have to offer into the dial smog she wants to be part of the revolution? the revolution number nine, i think is the revolution that she wants to be part of.
>> and finally the big story in a big decision coming up for the president is the tax cuts . the liberals are mad at him because he's not fighting hard enough. is the president a fighter? i don't know he took some stitch nets lip in a basketball game. did we count on this guy.
>> dude, if he caves anymore we're going to need that chilean tube to go into the ground to get him out. it's unbelievable.
>> lizz winstead , always a pleasure,
