The greatest thing ever, tomorrow!!

Kasparov is going to be on Colbert!
A super-smart politically right-wing guy without a sense of humor meets a super-smart satirical genius who is pretending to be conservative for purely comic purposes.

My mind just grinds to a halt trying to imagine it. Kinda like when Chessbase 9 freezes because you turn Fritz on and your computer really sucks, processorwise.

In case you're looking for a preview-- Colbert moonlighting as Maureen Dowd: http://www.nytimes.com/2007/10/14/opinion/14dowd.html?ex=1350014400&en=d01aa9466034843f&ei=5090&partner=rssuserland&emc=rss

Also great-- USCL commissoner Greg Shahade's chess videos:
I like how he manages to sound authoritative and insightful but also, simultaneously, like he has really no idea what's going on.

Is Garry right wing? I suppose so. Maybe I've just been reluctant to admit it, but all those WSJ op-eds, taken together, suggest you're right. And now that you mention it, no, he's not very funny, either.

Nobody's perfect.

Thanks for the tip. They were both funny enough, but it was obviously prearranged. I'd say the two of them are the lowest dogs around.

Garry and Colbert were anti-climactic. You didn't miss anything.
