My Great Adventure on the Daily Show

When the call came asking if I could be available for a taping for the Daily Show on the Comedy Central Channel the answer was "Of Course!"

I did not ask what this was about but I was glad it was the Iowa caucuses.

Half-Latino comedian Al Madrigal and his crew of 3, cameras, lights, the whole shebang came to Des Moines and we spend two and a half hours taping. It was exhausting but exhilarating. I had no idea what would be done with those hours of interview on Iowa and the Iowa caucuses.

On June 15 we finally got to see the episode sarcastically called "The Chosen Ones of Iowa."

I defended then Iowa caucuses and Iowa as a great state with wonderful people for the entire 2 1/2 hour "interrogation."

You decide how that went. Here is the link.

I was amazed you were so somber, so knew there was heavy editing. You're such a clever and funny man. Always fun to see you being Mr. Politics.
