How Many Crazies Can Fit on a Couch?

I just changed the channel to watch The Daily Show (Colin Firth is tonight's guest-weeee!), and what am I greeted with? Al Sharpton and Pat Robertson hanging out on the beach, sitting on a couch and AGREEING about the need to address global warming. I admit, I am having a hard time focusing on the message, because Al Sharpton and Pat Robertson are sitting on a couch on the beach, making jokes about their political philosophies and what they have in common (the title 'reverend' and lunatic ramblings?). WHAT?

It seems this ad is part of the We Can Solve It campaign, launched by The Alliance for Climate Protection and Al Gore. I'm sure their message is important, I'm just stuck on the fact that they have selected Al Sharpton, Pat Robertson, Nancy Pelosi and Newt Gingrich to deliver their message. Who are these commercials appealing to? I'm so confused.

On a completely unrelated note, I think I would like Colin Firth to read me something. I'm not picky, he can choose.

Did I mention that I saw Colin Firth last week as I was walking home from work? No? Well I did.

Aaaaaah, that was a good day.

But did he read you anything?

I had the exact same WTF? reaction when I saw the Pelosi/Gingrich ad. And then I wondered what they were promised to sit on that couch together long enough to get one decent take.


Although, I have to say, good on them for FINALLY moving past that bipartisan line in the sand and standing together on something vital.

Now if only we could get some decent legislation to go with that talk....

Oh I get it, Boo, I get it. You should see the clip of him on The Daily Show. He delighted the audience with tales of being photographed in NYC.
