Having to think, right with talk-to-text and edit all while driving to work.

No, you're choosing to do those things, rather than concentrating on driving. I hope you get there, though.

Did not know that, but, it certainly does not surprise me. After all, he of all people, knows what the purpose of most programming is today.

I know that. But he’s basically a low rent Allen Funt (who was a bad guy behind the scenes but that’s another story). Also, Funt required a release form for every person deceived by his jokes; otherwise, it couldn’t be aired.

I’ve always viewed “outrageous”, “absurd”, “extreme” and his type of humor as asinine in general. Today, the more vulgar and dirty your humor, the more it seems to be accepted...for some reason. Low level crap takes the top of the chart. Why?

Sasha Cohen is a low-rent Michael Moore.

Cohen makes a lot of fun of Jews, using the worst possible stereotypes but in reality he is a devout believer and the Israelis love him.

This is OT and I apologize.

As a long-time pilot, let me teach you something.

Aviate, navigate, communicate. Notice which is first.

Talking involves considerable brainpower best dedicated to situational awareness, especially with the demands of #1 & 2.

Just because you *can* talk-text does not make it smart.

Knock it off. It’s not that important.

Because it was once “off limits” or at least “outside the mainstream” so now that the standards and practices gloves/blinders are off, “it’s new”.

It’s also an escalating challenge. What new stunt will shock people?

Eating roaches?
Drinking pee?
Vaping tide pods?

Let’s all agree: he’s basically low rent.

So, everything goes? Look at DeNiro’s cursing the President of the United States. This says it all...

No class.

Not to mention many public people want to stay in the public eye so much they get blinded to everything going on around them except that camera in front of them. Famous people want to stay famous on the whole, and will overlook a lot as long as they perceive they are getting the attention that keeps them famous.

Sarah Palin eventually caught on- what do you expect them to do- have ESP to guess what is in the mind of the person they are talking to?

Cohen pretended to be a real disabled veteran... for A JOKE!... Ha ha because disabled vets are so funny.

Sarah Palin thought she was going to be helping them. Got that? Helping the disabled... Hee hee- jokes on her!

It was only when the interview became ridiculous that it was finally obvious what was going on. So... let’s all have a big laugh at Palin’s expense and (hee hee hee) let’s drop her off at the wrong airport so she gets stuck in town for 3 more days at her own expense!!!!

HIL- LARIOUS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Making fun of people who are coming to be charitable-gosh what a whole new vein of comedy that opens!

It’s a car wreck.

Smart, experienced Freepers are gently trying to save MeneMeneTekelUpharsin’s life.

It’s dangerous to play with your phone while you’re driving. Not worth the risk.

And the network airing his program bears some responsibility for the programming and actions of its performers.
