The always funny Ralphie May joined me on the show this morning.  I’d been a fan since I first saw him on Last Comic Standing, and learned he was on my side of the political aisle after seeing him down here at the Improv last year (and watched all the right wingers squirm while he told them the truth!).

This morning, he was on a roll, going off on each of the GOP presidential hopefuls.  When I asked him what he thought of President Obama’s performance, he admitted to being a big fan.  He praised the president’s prowess for going after terrorists, though he did admit that our “war on terrorism” is a bit like Global Whack-a-Mole.

I don’t think he was praising that aspect, and I am most certainly not … but I thought the name for our offensive military actions is quite an apt description … unfortunately.

I began the show by recapping last night’s GOP South Carolina debate.  Yes, I watched it so you didn’t have to.

And I played the latest ad from Americans for a Better Tomorrow Tomorrow (The Definitely Not Coordinating with Stephen Colbert Super PAC) – something that works better on video than radio. So watch it for yourself:

Wow. I wish I lived in South Caroline – but only to be able to vote for Herman Cain on Saturday!

As we do every Tuesday morning, I spent most of the second hour of the show talking with GottaLaff of The Political Carnival… We touched on some of these stories, and more:

VIDEO- Jon Huntsman’s history of attacks on Romney: “Gov. Romney enjoys firing people,” “detached,” can’t win.

Gasp! Rick Santorum’s hard-core, anti-choice wife dated, lived with an abortion provider

Video- Mitt Romney to dying wheelchair-bound medical marijuana patient: “I don’t support medical marijuana. Bye.”(2007)
