How did he get through?

Well, you can bet he won't be invited back.

No idea.  The guy is Lee Camp, an upcoming comedian.
Guess Fox-redactors were not well informed.....

Hmmmm.  I wonder if I could get them to let me on the air.  That could be fun for a few minutes.

I was looking around for more about the comedian and found his blog post on alternet about why he said what he said and what the response has been.

I like this guy.

I don't know if anyone will see this, so maybe I'll re-post it in Friday's open thread if I'm around.

Yeah, I was thinking about that.  There are earlier videos, too; apparently Fox has had him on before.

Together with the Montell Williams story, which I missed.
