TV: Colbert Report Needs Questions For Duncan Interview Tonight
Writers from the staff of The Colbert Report have contacted me asking for help with tonight's interview with Education Secretary, Arne Duncan. They need questions and jokes for Colbert to ask. I've only got a couple. Can you help out?
-What does it say that Kevin Jennings is being bullied by those mean Republicans, and no one seems to be able to stop them? Your safe schools czar isn't safe.
-You and Attorney General -- both extremely tall gentlemen -- are going to Chicago this week to talk about youth violence. What're you going to do, play two on two against the gang leaders to see who gets to control the streets?
-Speaking of which: If I play you in a game of "horse" and I win, does that mean that I'll be in charge of the schools?
-You've called No Child Left Behind "toxic" and said it needs changing -- can I take that to mean that some children should be left behind? If so, I have some kids I'd like to nominate.
