And now, the final irony. One of the 'Hot Points' that was brought up as being 'unsuitable for our audience' was my joke about pro-lifers. My brilliant friend Andy posited the theory that this was really what bothered and scared the network the most, seeing as how the 'pro-life' movement has become essentially a terrorist group acting with impunity and God on their side, in a country where the reasonable majority overwhelmingly supports freedom of choice regarding abortion. I felt there was something to this theory, but still I was surprised to be watching the Letterman show (I'm still a fan) the Monday night following my censored Friday night performance, and lo and behold, they cut to a...are you ready for this?...A pro-life commercial! This force is now completed. 'Follow the money'.
And if we ever find a way to bring back the dead - someone better sit him in front of an abridged version of the American history he's missed out on and then fuckin' mic him up.
