Post to the Host:
As a person who mostly votes for the Republican candidate I love your satire. My fellow Republicans who often complain to you about it need to get a life. I have yet to see any public official who wasnít ripe for satire. Saturday Night Live has done a wonderful job making fun of sitting presidents for over a quarter of a century. If anything, I think you need to do more satire on your show.

Matt,
Thanks for the vote of confidence, but I donít do politics anymore. I have no idea how to make it funny. What Iíve found pleasurable is singing the National Anthem with the audience in the key of G. Itís a real balm to the soul. Hope to do satire again someday.
