As Tina Dupuy notes on Mediabistro's Fishbowl LA blog, it appears that Thompson, “has the joke ethics of Carlos Mencia.” She writes:
On Real Time's season finale last week Bill Maher said, “The only silver lining I can find is that British accents aren't sexy anymore.”
Fred's tweet, “Getting BP's CEO to testify at a Congressional hearing DID accomplish one thing: British accents are no longer sexy #ftrs #tcot”
Then a couple minutes later, another lift. Fred tweets, “The only way Obama's speech could have been any worse is if there were people in the background blowing into vuvuzelas. #ftrs #tcot
And of course, Stephen Colbert did a bit last night with vuvuzeles over the President's speech.
