Seriously. This is comedy Hiroshima.

The appearance of Yusuf Islam – now only Yusuf produced some great comments.

Harry Shearer wondered where his last name went.

I bet Yusuf hates being called Cat Stevens as much as I hate being called Anakin
I answered that at least he didn’t drop the “Vader”
Keith Olberman got his wittle feelings hurt

Sort of amazing how far the irony/earnestness pendulum has swung back towards irony after just 2 years.

@DavidCornDC when are you going to start taking shots at the DNC for failing to get the base worked up instead of whining about the rally?

Midterm zeitgeist captured in 2 rallies: Beck/Palin claim monopoly on honor, faith & country while #rally4sanity does medley of SNL outtakes
I loved when Tweeterer Humansvsrobots enjoyed R2D2.
Podhoretz is happy
