I love the "Famous People" segment, especially Bob [Dylan] and Bob [Dole].
It's time to bring some voices from the past.
Perhaps Mr. Dole might get some advice from "Dick" Nixon, and Mr. Clinton could certainly use a few hints from "Jack" Kennedy. Maybe he and J. Edgar Hoover have some old FBI files [down?] there, that Bob could give to Oliver Stone to make a Clinton Conspiracy Movie.
Now, you just need to select a famous dead person to play the devil. Dick and J. Edgar would be having too much fun, so he'd have to keep them in line. I'd suggest my ex-boss, but he's not famous. He's also not dead [yet!]
I love your show -- I tape it every week and listen to it while exercising. The two hours pass like an attack of gas after eating mushroom enchiladas. [Yes, that's a fart joke.]
But seriously, keep up the good work and come back to San Diego soon!
Sorry about that boss. Is there a particular story you had in mind about him when you nominated him to play the devil? Something you'd like to share?
