Why I Support Craig Ferguson

As comedians, various celebrities, bloggers, and protesters with far too much time on their hands join in the furor surrounding the three-way feud between Conan O'Brien, Jay Leno, and NBC, only one prominent late night talk show host has the courage to express the RIGHT point-of-view on this subject. That man, of course, is Craig Ferguson.

I'm looking at all of this trouble in late night, you know, and everybody talking about "Oh, Jay going over there and Conan going over there, and which, you know, middle aged white guy's gonna get X million dollars at what point." And I'm thinking to myself, "I'm getting embarrassed," because I, I know this isn't really a late night talk show—it's just kinda something that happens right about the same time—but a lot of times, a lot of times I'm looped in with all of this, and I think, I'm feeling uncomfortable, I'm starting to feel a bit like an AIG executive or something... So, I'm not gonna talk so much about that tonight. I'm gonna talk about... an actual real news story going on, these people of Haiti and what they're dealing with... This is horrifying. It might be, it's one of the worst natural disasters, apparently, in, in recorded history. Um, so I think that's more important.
