Back in My Day, Mayor Pete Was Still Polling at 1 Percent in Iowa
There’s not much going on in the world of politics this morning. Assange is battling his extradition; Mayor Pete has surged in Iowa, from one percent to 11 percent in polls, but Biden still holds a double-digit lead over Bernie; and Herman Cain is almost certainly not going to be nominated to the Fed after four Republicans say they wouldn’t confirm him. That’s about it, and I haven’t had enough coffee yet to turn nothing into something we can debate about in the comments section all morning.
So, you know what? Let’s kick the morning off with one of my favorite Seth Meyers segments, “Back in My Day,” where Seth trades in his jacket for a cardigan and talks about how much better we had it back in our day, when we didn’t have things like an Elton John biopic. “We had a Freddie Mercury biopic, and it was just meh, but it won a bunch of Oscars, which is why we have an Elton John biopic now.”
And if you need a news fix, here are last night’s headlines from Late Night (and the news hasn’t changed much this morning, so the jokes haven’t aged yet!).
And here, why not? This is Anthony Carrigan, best known as No-ho Hank, who talks about owning his alopecia.
