  1. A long time without comments. Readers must be too stunned by the thought of Greg Gutfeld as one of the funniest men in these United States.

  2. “Come see two of the funniest men in these United States … Red Eye host Greg Gutfeld”.

    While you’re at it, listen to one of the world’s greatest bands, Limp Bizkit.

  3. “Come see two of the funniest men in these United States — The Drudge Report’s Andrew Breitbart and Red Eye host Greg Gutfeld.”

    Was Dane Cook not available?

  4. If anyone’s gonna be there, I’d appreciate it if you would kick* Gutfeld in the nads. Thanks!

    * Virtually, not physically. I’m not a violent person.

  5. No thanks, I’ll probably stay home reading two of the funniest comic strips in the United States (Family Circus and Cathy) while drinking two of the best-tasting beers in the United States (Bud Light and Coors Light)

  6. PBR, Old Mil, and Colt 45. Mmmmmmm

  7. 2008… right?

  8. Wow, I’d love to come hear the hilarious Greg Gutfeld, but I already made plans to shave my head with a cheese grater and chew on tinfoil. But have fun. (If he is the future of conservative media, liberals have nothing to fear.)

  9. If Greg Gutfeld is one of the two funniest comedians in America, then the third and fourth are AIDS and cancer.

  10. Why are the Reason people consigned by Fox News to that insipid Red Eye thing?

    Greg Gutfeld is like that creepy guy in eleventh grade study hall who thought he was funny, but was just weird. You know, the one who had a girlfriend in Canada.

  11. Let me make the first pro-Gutfeld comment here. I used to join in the jeers whenever Kerry Howley promoted one of her appearances on “Red Eye” but now, after actually watching the show a few times, as opposed to just the little clips with her in it, I have to say it’s one of the weirdest, funniest, most intelligent shows on TV. Gutfeld is a genial blowhard host who throws in enough self-deprecation to make his obnoxiousness appealing, Bill Schulz is an amusingly dorky sidekick, the D-list celebrities add to the general campy fun, and Andrew Levy is hilarious as the show’s ombudsman.

  12. I’ve been converted to a “Kerry on Red Eye” apologist, but whatever the merits of that show (and I’m told everyone on the show is at least vaguely aware of just how bad it is, which makes it tolerable), Gutfeld just isn’t funny.

    That said, I’ll continue to champion Reason writers on TV, no matter what the hour or network.

  13. ***This Just In***

    Paul confirms he’s got no chance at nomination, but vows to fight on and try to get as many delegates as he can to make statement at the convention. He will cut staff for his national campaign to save money, but he will continue his fight in the primaries. He will simultaneously continue to campaign to keep his seat in Congress. He reiterated tonight in an email to his supporters that there will be NO 3rd Party run.

    ***Back to your regularly scheduled program***

  14. It certainly does take time for Gutfeld to grow on you, but I have to say I now absolutely love the guy.

  15. While you’re at it, listen to one of the world’s greatest bands, Limp Bizkit.

    Epic burnsauce.

  16. listen to one of the world’s greatest bands, Limp Bizkit.

    I believe you meant to say “Terry Jacks,” who performed the single greatest song in American, possibly world, history:

    We had joy, we had fun, we had seasons in the sun, but the stars that we reached were just starfish on the beach.

    Sniff. I’m tearing up here. That’s just so beautiful. Even my callous misanthropic soul is touched, because it’s just so sad. I mean, they wanted a real star, but all they could get was a starfish, which reeks of fish but not in a good sexy way, and they probably got sand in their bathing suits too, which is annoying and leads to chafing, plus the kid died in the song and. . . oh, God, now I’m really crying. Sniff, sob, sniffle, snort.

  17. “A long time without comments. Readers must be too stunned by the thought of Greg Gutfeld as one of the funniest men in these United States.”

    Well, Matt didn’t specify WHICH states!

  18. I actually never heard of Greg Gutfeld before this-here blog post of Matt’s, and have no idea if he (Gutfeld) is funny or not. I just never pass up a chance to discuss the gloriousness that is Seasons in the Sun

  19. Jennifer,

    I thought you were a hardened journalist. I had no idea you had a soft, sentimental side.

    “which reeks of fish but not in a good sexy way…”

    Great line. I am gonna work that into a conversation with the wife somehow.

  20. Eh, the sentimental thing turned out to be a false alarm, Wayne. It so happens my crying jag stopped the second I’d extracted a painful rogue eyelash from my eye. Oooh, that feels much better. And that song totally sucks.

  21. Jennifer,

    My faith in the cynical nature of man is restored. Thanks, or whatever.

  22. I actually have come to like Red Eye.

    And if I ever had to do without it, I’d have to say: Goodbye, Red Eye, please pray for me.
    I was the black sheep of the family. You tried to teach me right from wrong. Too much wine and too much song, wonder how I got along.

  23. Any way this could be recorded and posted on reason.tv?

  24. Did you know that 10-15 years ago someone was going around impersonating Terry Jacks? You say why, I say why not?
