It’s a relief knowing this election year will have some fun and games: Michael Ian Black (Wet Hot American Summer, Reno 911, The State) and John McCain’s daughter Meghan have collaborated on a book and companion tour. I can’t grasp how this has come into being, but I most definitely did buy tickets for their July 18 stop in Seattle. Says the Town Hall website:
In the summer of 2011, writer (and John’s famous daughter) Meghan McCain and comedian Michael Ian Black embarked on a political cannonball of a cross-country tour. They talked to politicians, gun lovers, abortion-rights advocates and opponents, gay parents, flag burners, Muslims, poker players, Tea Partiers, veterans, teen moms, bikers, fast-food workers, and a hooker or two. They toured the White House. They fired semiautomatic weapons. They ate at every Olive Garden along the way. But mostly they talked to each other about their differences and their similarities. And then they wrote it all down as a red, white and blue letter called America, You Sexy Bitch.
