This week I return to the man who started it all -- Larry King. And I can promise you this: so long as there is a Hate By Numbers
, there will be more Larry King shows. He is the poster child for everything this segment is about. But in truth, this wasn't the show I intended to bring to you. Instead, I had a Fox News report on whether teachers should be allowed to post pictures on MySpace. The story featured all the other elements of a typical Hate By Numbers
-- sanctimonious puritanical hypocrisy (and breasts). But before i could capture it, Fox News pulled it off their website -- presumably to make more room for stories speculating about whether Barack Obama is a secret Muslim. So I went searching in a panic. The lovely and talented David Wong was there to hold my hand and bring me a tissue as I whined about my lost segment and all but abandoned hope. I seriously considered not doing a show this week. But then David said something that clicked with me:
"Christ, Gladstone. Strap on and shut up. You sound just like the little bitch your detractors accuse you of being."
I knew David was right as sure as I knew that one day Michael Swaim would land a guest shot on Two and A Half Men and bad mouth me to Jon Cryer over Mojitos in his trailer. So here it is, Larry King interviewing Stanley Romanek -- some dude who claims he captured video footage of an alien.
Gladstone wants to be your special friend. Check out some more of his stuff HERE and OVER HERE and HERE TOO.
