"To call me a partisan hack is ludicrous. I am the least partisan person I know."  Tucker Carlson, (CNN's Reliable Sources, 3/15/09)

And they say that conservatives don't know satire. Oh, excuse me. Carlson is a Libertarian. A Libertarian is a conservative who wants to do standup. I know. I am the criminal behind the stand up comedy of Libertarian presidential candidate, Bob Barr.

As part of his attempted comeback to pundit hilarity, the fired CNN co-host, fired MSNBC host, Tucker Carlson has hit the political cable and news circuit with a hysterical routine on Jon Stewart's take on CNBC's (and media-in-general) lack of oversight of big business and the stock market. I hated to give away his best punchline - "To call me a partisan hack is ludicrous. I am the least partisan person I know" - so soon, but when you have prime rib comedy you don't save it for dessert.

I was waiting for Tucker to go Rodney Dangerfield.

"I tellya, Kurtz, I get no respect. No respect, I tellya."

Tucker had plenty more bullets in his frivolity belt.
