-- .

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)

>> Stephen: WELCOME BACK,

EVERYBODY.

WELCOME BACK.

FOLKS, FOLKS, IT'S NO

SECRET.

WE ALL KNOW THE MEDIA IS

LIBERAL.

THAT'S WHY THEY SHOW US ONLY

KATIE COURIC'S COLONOSCOPY

AND NOT SEAN HANNITIES.

RELEASED TAPES.

I WANT TO SEE THE CHUNKS OF

COLMES HE'S GOT STUCK IN

THERE FOLKS, ANY TIME A

CONSERVATIVE FIGURE IS IN

TROUBLE, THE MEDIA WHIPS

ITSELF INTO A FEEDING

FRENZY.

SO IT'S TIME FOR ANOTHER

INSTALLMENT OF BLOOD IN THE

WATER.

(APPLAUSE)

>> SHARK SHARK.

SHARK, SHARK, SHARK, SHARK.

>> Stephen: FOLKS, THE

LATEST REPUBLICAN FOUND

BOBBING IN A POOL OF HIS OWN

CHUM IS TEXAS STATE

REPRESENTATIVE LARRY TAYLOR

WHO IS BEING ATTACKED JUST

BECAUSE AT A HEARING LAST

THURSDAY HE HAD HARSH WORDS

FOR INSURANCE COMPANIES WHO

DIDN'T PAY THE CLAIMS OF

DISASTER VICTIMS IN A TIMELY

MANNER.

>> YOUR JOB IS TO PAY THE

CLIENTS.

DON'T NITPICK, DON'T TRY TO

JEW THEM DOWN-- .

>> Stephen: YES.

I THINK WE CAN ALL AGREE

THAT'S PROBABLY A BAD TERM.

I MEAN COME ON, THIS IS THE

21st CENTURY.

IF A REPUBLICAN WANTS TO

CRITICIZE IN A WAY THAT'S

ACCEPTABLE, DON'T SAY JEW

THEM DOWN.

SAY MUSLIM THEM DOWN.

OR GAY THEM UP.

OR MEXICAN THEM SIDEWAYS.

NOW FOLKS, I WANT TO BE

CLEAR HERE.

I AM NOT DEFENDING WHAT

REPRESENTATIVE TAYLOR SAID.

BUT THERE'S NO NEED FOR THE

MEDIA TO PILE ON HIM LIKE A

BUNCH OF CHEER KEYS ON A

BOTTLE OF FIRE WATER WHICH

IS A PHRASE I REGRET USING.

NOW I WOULD JUST LIKE TO

POINT OUT, I WOULD LIKE TO

POINT OUT HOW QUICKLY TAYLOR

CORRECTED HIMSELF, JIM?

>> YOUR JOB TO PAY THE

CLIENT, DON'T NITPICK, DON'T

TRY TO JEW THEM DOWN

OR-- THAT'S PROBABLY A BAD

TERM.

>> Stephen: NOW TO ANALYZE,

HOW TAYLOR RESPONDED JUST SO

FAST.

LET'S HEAD OVER TO THE

BIGOT-O-TRON 9,000.

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)

WELCOME, WELCOME TO THE

BIGOT-O-TRON 9000 WHERE

NOTHING IS BLACK AND WHITE.

IT'S NEGRO AND CRACKER.

NOW FOLKS, LARRY TAYLOR WILL

BE REPRESENTED BY THIS PHOTO

OF HIM.

NOW SCIENCE TELLS US THAT

THE BRAIN HAS TWO LOBES.

THE RIGHT SIDE OF THE BRAIN

HOUSES THE ETHNIC STEREOTYPE

LOBE WHILE THE LEFT SIDE OF

THE BRAIN CONTAINS THE

KNOWLEDGE THAT THERE IS A

CAMERA POINTED AT HIM.

APPARENTLY, APPARENTLY THE

CONNECTION BETWEEN THESE TWO

SIDES WAS AT SOME POINT

SEVERED.

(LAUGHTER)

ONE IMAGINES DURING AN

INDUSTRIAL ACCIDENT WHERE

LET'S SAY A SAW BLADE WENT

OUT OF CONTROL AND

PENETRATED HIS SKULL CUTTING

THE CORPOS COLOSSUM SO WHEN

HE SAID THE PROBABLY BAD

TERM "JEW HIM DOWN" OVER

HERE, THIS SIDE DIDN'T KNOW

AND COULD NOT STOP IT FROM

EMERGING FROM HIS MOUTH,

WHEREUPON IT ENTERED HIS

LEFT EAR, THUS TRIGGERING

THE MEDULA-I-[BLEEP]-UP-ALLOTTA.

>> ALSO, ALSO I KNOW HOW TO

DRAW SNOOPY.

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)

AND THAT IS THE MIRACLE OF

BIOLOGY.

TAYLOR HAS SINCE ISSUED A

WRITTEN APOLOGY SAYING I

INADVERTENTLY USED A PHRASE

THAT MANY PEOPLE FIND

OFFENSIVE.

I REGRET MY POOR CHOICE OF

WORDS.

YOU SEE, HE INADVERTENTLY

USED A PHRASE THAT MANY

PEOPLE FIND OFFENSIVE.

MEANING THAT SOME PEOPLE

ENJOY THAT PHRASE, AND HE

SIMPLY ASSUMED HE WAS

TALKING TO THOSE PEOPLE.

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)

SO GET OFF HIS BACK, MEDIA.

THE LESS ON HERE IS WE ALL

JUST NEED TO BE MORE

SENSITIVE TO THE FACT THAT

SOME OLD ETHNIC SLURS ARE NO

LONGER ACCEPTABLE.

SO YOU CAN'T SAY DON'T MAKE

ME GO DUTCH.

OR DON'T WELCH ON A BET.

OR GIVE ME A BRAZILIAN.
