Please excuse us while we interrupt our normal blogging schedule for this late-breaking news:

Damn Olympics. Because of the drama over the judging in the men's gymnastics individual events last night, I elected to watch the NBC coverage instead of The Daily Show. With thanks to freakgirl at Too Much Free Time, I learned today that John Kerry is going to be on the show tonight.

Like him, dislike him, love him, hate him, or feel somewhat indifferent toward him (and no, I don't really want to hear where you stand on that particular point), you have to admit that getting him on the show is quite a coup and is going to be entertaining at the very least. Jon Stewart has been exercising his Kerry "stentorian voice," as I saw it referred to here (Reg. or BugMeNot required), in comic bits over the last few months, so it will be interesting to see how Kerry reacts to that if it comes up. Who knows? With some luck, a moment as classic as the "Boxers or briefs?" question asked of Clinton could occur. If it hasn't already, that is.

Please feel at liberty to "meet" here after the show to discuss your impressions. I'll be up.
